    Hi all,

    In my local Lloyds chemist they are selling a Solpadeine TENs machine reduced from 39.99 to 9.99 - it is supplied with two AAA battery's and the machine itself is brill - it has 8 settings ranging from pain to massage.

    Here's a link to their website where I've just confirmed the offer:

    Just had a look and it appears that the offer ENDS TODAY - 31/08/06

    (see small print on the advert for the TENS)

    Although all the others - Thermometer & Scales & BP Monitor & Family Health Guide - all have "offer ends 12/09/06 "
    There are 10 types of people in the world. ()

    Sounds like you need Specsavers rather than Lloyds Pharmacies

    Also just managed to find a Lloyds that still had any left and bagged a couple.

    staff confirmed that the offer ended today BUT MIGHT return in the near future due to its popularity.

    The offer might return as I bagged a couple about 5 months ago when it was last on. Worked great on my headaches caused by stiff neck and shoulders and also worked well on my elbow when I strained it.
    Just make sure that you dont start it too high - It gave me a heck of a shock and then I couldnt find the button to reduce it!

    I got one of these a couple of months ago and yes they are good.Problem though, i need some replacement pads - using 50% off voucher on box but my local Lloyds say they can`t get hold of them.

    I also got one and works great except you have to pay for the replacement pads which aren't cheap - I guess they may subsidise the machine so you have to then buy the pads where the real profit is

    did a google search for pads and found these

    Not sure how good they are will let you know once I've tried them

    i find these are great for keeping the wife awake when watching tv in bed, if she nods a bit then you give it a quick crank up to No10

    thanks for this
    is officially a GLEEK
  • aquarian3
    I know some of you pointed out the offer ends today (31st Aug) but its worth popping into your local Lloyds just to see if they've any left?

    And as for the pads - I borrowed one of these machines from a pain clinic and they advised when the pads became un-sticky, just wet your finger with clean running water and run over the pad, it'll get it's tacky-ness back.

    Ashley, did you manage to work out what's wrong with your machine?

    It's still new you could return it and upgrade to the new one for 19.99 instead.
