Panadol commands strong market share in the everyday pain management space, however when it comes to more severe conditions such as migraines two main challenges face the brand:

1. Low Condition Awareness

2. Migraine Medication is Traditionally Prescribed by HCPs and no habitual consumption of migraine medication is present on an OTC level. Does an OTC brand  have the right to play in this space?

3. Consumer expectations have changed, how can brands cut through and move consumers to try something new without relying on expert recommendation
