From Unilab Consumer Health, the new Rexidol Forte has been reformulated to suit the needs of the working Filipinos particularly in areas of Visayas and Mindanao. The new reformulated Rexidol Forte now composed of 500mg of Paracetamol and 65mg of Caffeine from the old formula of 600mg Paracetamol. The addition of caffeine claimed to increase the absorption of Paracetamol translated into effective pain-relieving effects of Paracetamol. Rexidol Forte is said to be safer because it doesnt have any Propyphenazone components that may have higher odds for anaphylactic reactions or allergies.
Cebu based Radio and TV Commentator Bobby Nalzaro is the new endorser for Unilab's reformulated Rexidol Forte. Sir Bobby commends Rexidol Forte a recommended medication for the relief of Severe Headache (Sakit ng Ulo), Fever (Hilanat) and Extreme body pain (Pamaol, over-fatigue and Bughat), a common pain of the hardworking crowd in Vismin area. Recommended dosage for adults and children 12 years old and above is 1-2 tablets every 6 hours as needed for pain and or fever, or as prescribed by a doctor.
