Reformulated Rexidol Forte Launched in Cebu

Rexidol Forte is back. Instead of the 600 mg Paracetamol formulation, it has become a reformulated 500 mg Paracetamol and 65 mg Caffeine fever and pain medication which comes at an affordable price of less than 4 pesos.

The reformulated Rexidol Forte of Unilab Consumer Health was launched last September 27, 2012 in front of mainstream and new media at the Parklane Hotel Diane Hall. It was graced by Rexidol Forte ambassador and media personality Bobby "Super Bobby" Nalzaro who talked about his personal experience with Rexidol Forte.

Product representatives of Rexidol Forte stressed that unlike other Paracetamol preparations with caffeine, Rexidol Forte is safer because it has no propyphenazone. People taking medications with propyphenazone according to them have higher odds for anaphylactic (severe allergic) reactions than those taking medications without propyphenazone.

In addition, the caffeine in Rexidol Forte (which is lesser than 6 oz of brewed coffee and within the range of 1 cup of instant coffee) is claimed to increase the absorption of Paracetamol thereby "unleashing Paracetamol" and its pain-relieving effects. This reportedly make Rexidol Forte a recommended medication for the relief of severe headache (Labad sa Ulo), fever (Hilanat), extreme body pain (Pamaol) and "bughat".

Those taking Rexidol Forte are advised to refrain from taking caffeine-containing beverages, drinks or food while on Rexidol Forte.

Expect to see Rexidol Forte already reformulated in your favorite drugstores soon.
