Painkiller advice

30 December 2014: Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) spokesperson Sultan ‘Sid’ Dajani spoke to the Daily Mail about simple New Year resolutions to transform your health. Sid spoke about swapping ibuprofen for paracetamol. He said: “Many people believe ibuprofen is more powerful than paracetamol, but there is no evidence to support this and paracetamol is much kinder to your body.”

Sid explained that ibuprofen can damage the stomach lining: “Paracetamol doesn’t damage the gut lining like ibuprofen does, and should always be the first line of attack.”
