Long term use of any tablet would not be recommended , you would really need to ask a GP about a prescription for your headaches to be honest as non of us know your history .

For example codeine is addictive and its use is restricted now in a lot of countries

I have been to the doctor and was advised Migraleve which doesn't really help. I guess I'll see what works, when I next need to. Thanks, everyone.

I suffer from tension headaches and I've found that Syndol is the only thing that works for me but when I tried to buy them at the pharmacy counter in Sainsbury's at the start of the year, I was told that there were licensing problems but they should be back by the end of January.

I haven't tried to buy any since then, so I don't know whether they are back or not.

How weird - I ordered some of these last night!!! Hopefully Syndol will be back soon. Its seems there are a lot of pain relief tablets that are flying off the shelves at the moment. I read somewhere its a government clamp down on OTC drugs that can be addictive.

Already in force in Ireland .Anything with codeine in it is now behind the counter .You must ask for it and be advised by the pharmacist that its use it only for 3 days in a row .
So Nurofen Plus , Solpediene , Co Codomol et are all now off the shelves and only available from the pharmacist .

Amazon, think it was 6.97 for 92 tablets. I'm talking about the sleeping aid ones not syndol.

Do you mind me asking you what pain you take it for and if you need the drowsy effect of the anti histamine ? If yo only need it for pain the Paracetomol with codeine will do the job, caffeine doesnt ease pain it simply excellerates the the speed which codeine works .

i just drink mine with coffee or coke instead

Thanks for that. I suppose its needed as there are loads of people taking them for the wrong reasons.

No problem. I'm starting to panic a bit with the lack of Syndol out there. Its one of the only things that actually works. I saw a packet going on ebay for 24.00, 12 bids and time still to go

Good grief. Really! It does seem to be the only thing that works for many people.

I got this from Boots online just now. Apparently, their tension headache pills are made by the same people so it might be good news:

Thanks for contacting us about the availability of our Boots Tension Headache Tablets in our stores. I can appreciate your concerns that this was out of stock when you went to buy it.

I have checked the availability of this product and I can see that we have experienced a delay with our supplier. We are working hard to get this resolved, and get stock back in to stores as soon as possible. We expect that these should be back in store by 31/03/2012

Anything with codeine in has only ever been available over the counter at pharmacies, and not off the shelf, here in England, as far as I can remember.

I saw that just before. I have about 30 tablets in the house, I'd attempt to make a shady profit out of it but knowing my luck I'd be struck down with my head.

It's a shame really because for some people (like me) Syndol is the only thing that relieves that sort of headache.

It seems Syndol (tables for headaches etc) is unavailable at the moment in the UK. I have found they really work better than anything else. Does anyone know an equivalent, please?

Many thanks!

It can depend on where you go though. One of our local pharamcies still hands out Nurofen Plus etc. with no questions asked. The first time I went in to get some after the new laws came into force I was expecting a barrage of questioning, but she actually asked me if I'd like a 24 pack instead of a 12 and happily handed it over no questions asked. Got some more there recently and again no hassle!

You could try Twitter. Someone on there was asking if there was anyone who had any she could buy.

I had a headache this morning and tried Co-codamol, as suggested on there, and they worked so that's a comfort.

Then she is not following the guidelines ,All pharmacist must give the recommended advice to customers .

Hey kimi. I suffer from migraines and just bad headaches in general. My mum mentioned that she hasn't been able to get Syndol either. For just general bad headaches, I find Tesco own Extra Power Pain Relief really good - http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Produ.../?id=255488705.
