DUOMAX is a unique patented combination of Paracetamol 500mg and Ibuprofen 150mg, two tried and trusted active ingredients that work together in different, yet complementary ways to help relieve pain.

DUOMAX was developed as an alternative for pain relief than other combination painkillers containing codeine, and as a better, faster form of pain relief than either Paracetamol or Ibuprofen alone; the two most common pain relief medications used around the world.

DUOMAX provides temporary relief for a wide range of pain including:

  • Headache
  • Migraine headache
  • Toothache
  • Pain from dental procedures
  • Muscular pain
  • Back pain
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Period Pain

DUOMAX is available from all pharmacies in Cyprus.

No, there is no codeine in DUOMAX. Codeine is often used to amplify the effect of pain relief in other combination pain relief products, but as a member of the opiate family it has the potential for misuse. Health authorities around the world have expressed concerns about this issue, and so DUOMAX was formulated without codeine.

Take 1–2 tablets with a full glass of water.

Repeat the dose every 6 hours, as required, up to a maximum of 6 tablets in 24 hours. Do not use for more than 3 days except on the advice of your doctor.

DUOMAX should not be combined with any other Paracetamol or Ibuprofen containing medicines.

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose when you are meant to. Otherwise, take it as soon as you remember, and then go back to taking your tablets as you would normally.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.

If you are not sure whether to skip the dose, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

DUOMAX is NOT recommended for children under 18 years of age.
