Combiflam is a combination of the over the counter medications Paracetemol (AKA Acetaminophen/AKA Tylenol) and ibuprofen (AKA Advil). Ibuprofen is an NSAID (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug), and Paracetemol/Acetaminophen is a common over the counter pain relief medication.

The two drugs seem to work together in a "1+1=3" action, making the combination more effective together than either would be separately, and seemingly more effective in combination than the drug combination should theoretically allow.

Current litrature states that Paracetemol's pain relief action lies almost exclusively within the brain, whereas Ibuprofen's pain relief action lies more heavily within the body (It's Anti-Inflammatory component). It is likely that this dual action on body and brain account for the synergistic action of the combination.

Dosage seems to be a very important key, and a key in avoiding overdose of either class of drug.

Unless you wish to hasten your departure from this world to another one, DO NOT mix alcohol with any sort of medication.... Combiflam is a painkiller, a combination of Paracetemol and Ibuprofen.... If you google search and read about these 2 drugs, you will notice that these two are highly potent painkillers.... A combination drug like Combiflam is therefore, even more potent.... Remember the golden rules : 1) NEVER : mix alcohol and medication, the side-effects can be catastrophic and potentially FATAL.... 2) NEVER : consume alcohol immediately after taking any sort of medication, be it a painkiller like Combiflam or any other analgesic (like Dispirin or Anacin).... The rest is up to you....
