What is Co-Codamol?

The active ingredients in Co-Codamol are paracetamol and codeine. Paracetamol and codeine are painkilling and stimuli suppressant drugs. Paracetamol reduces fever and blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Codeine relieves symptoms by suppressing the pain signals. These two medicines combined are a powerful painkiller that can be used to treat many pain symptoms.

When is it used?

Co-Codamol is prescribed when other painkillers are not effective or not effective enough. It can be used for the flu (especially with coughing symptoms), rheumatic pain, back pain, post-operative pain or pain from illness, headache or other pain symptoms.

How to use Co-Codamol

Co-Codamol should be taken before meals. Dissolve the tablet in half a glass of water, stir well and drink immediately. Co-Codamol is also available in effervescent tablet form. Effervescent tablets should also be dissolved in a glass of water. If you have forgotten to take a dose of Co-Codamol, take it as soon as you remember. Please note that the regular interval between the doses is at least four hours. Never take a double dose of Co-Codamol. See package leaflet for more information.

Dosage

Co-Codamol contains 500 mg paracetamol and 15 or 30 mg codeine per tablet, and is available in packs of 30, 100, 200 and 230 tablets. Co-Codamol effervescent 500/30 tablets are available in pack size of 100 and 200 tablets. The usual dose for an adult is one or two Co-Codamol tablets every four hours, with a maximum of eight tablets a day. However, we advise that you follow your doctor's orders when taking the medication. Co-Codamol in the above strength is not suitable for children under 12 years of age. The appropriate dosage for children aged 12 to 18 years is determined by a doctor.
