What's so good about it? My Mum used to love it but I've never used it

Toddlerteaplease Fri 19-Jul-19 14:54:32

Agreed. Thank God!

What is it?

Fibbke Fri 19-Jul-19 14:55:54

Is it!!! Fantastic stuff

Painkillers that make you float?

All it has in it is paracetamol, codeine, caffeine and an antihistamine. Not much different to cocodamol. You can buy sedating antihistamines for sleep.

Cocolapew Fri 19-Jul-19 15:44:50

It's the only thing that actually lifts my tension headaches. Co codamol does nothing for me.
I tried the separate anti histamine but it never worked.

I know! Fanbloodytastic.

The only thing that works for my headaches.

I saw it on the counter in sainsbury and wondered if it was back in its old form.
Great news!

I took it years ago for tension headaches and couldn't keep my eyes open. Certainly work great as a sedative...

Ooh lovely 😊

I've just woken up after Syndol induced nap. I forgot I used to take 1 then wait an hour if I needed another!
My horrendous headache is gone though smile

This is the best news I’ve heard in ages!

PolkadotLollipop Fri 19-Jul-19 18:35:13

These threads always worry me. Codeine abuse and addiction is a real problem. I do think that threads like these attract posters with issues around it.

PolkadotLollipop Fri 19-Jul-19 18:35:48

And yes, even the 8mg codeine can be a problem.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 19-Jul-19 18:37:12

This is excellent news. How will I know if I'm getting the 'real' stuff?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 19-Jul-19 18:38:11

And I have absolutely no 'addiction' or chance of it. It's just that when I do get a raging migraine, real Syndol is the only thing that used to fully help .

Sadie789 Fri 19-Jul-19 18:57:06

Well @PolkadotLollipop perhaps you’re not plagued by cluster headaches and migraines.

I’m not addicted to anything and I’m a grown adult who can temper my consumption of over the counter medicines to well below the recommended amount.

Thanks for your concern all the same.

I was off work after losing a parent and the gp had suggested syndol to help me sleep. I took them about 11am and texted husband to say ‘i’m Really not tired’ the next thing I knew it was 6pm and I was woken up by DH coming home from work.

Cocolapew Fri 19-Jul-19 19:19:00

I use it very occasionally, I get an awful headache that goes down into my neck and shoulders.
Syndol helps like no other. I take it maybe once every few months.
Remus it had a sign with it saying it was the original one back on the market. It's the one with doxylomine in it.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 19-Jul-19 19:22:59

Thanks, Coco. I'm adding it to my weekend shopping list. smile

stoplickingthetelly Fri 19-Jul-19 19:36:56

Really! This has made my day. Only thing that used to shift my really bad headaches.

PolkadotLollipop Fri 19-Jul-19 19:48:42

I am actually, Sadie. I have had complex migraine since I was 17, I’m 41 now. I’ve been under a neurologist for them for the past 15+ years after my GP had exhausted all their options.

PolkadotLollipop Fri 19-Jul-19 19:50:46

I’m glad you’ve found a way to manage your pain, coco.
