Maxigesic is a unique, patented combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen that provides fast, effective double action pain relief from a wide range of pain. It contains both paracetamol and ibuprofen; paracetamol acts mainly in the brain to stop pain messages from getting through, and Ibuprofen targets the production of pain chemicals throughout the body and reduces inflammation.
