I first tried Beechams powder when I suffered with excruciating pain from tooth infection..nothing worked, not even prescription painkillers. My colleague recommended this powder and wiped the pain away. I couldnt believe how effective it was. Since then I use Beechams for any pain - headache, period pain, cold...
Could not live without these altought they have changed the texture of the powder it is thicker and grainer so doesnt go down as well but works a treat for any cold and flu. They are amazing and an essential for the medicine box!
