Experiences with Co-codamol

Effective pain relief is very important. When painkillers such as paracetamol are not effective enough to relieve the pain, you can use Co-codamol. Co-codamol contains a combination of two painkilling ingredients: the trusted painkiller paracetamol, and codeine, a powerful painkiller that blocks out pain signals sent to the brain in a different way. This combination makes Co-codamol one of the stronger types of painkillers. Many of our customers are very happy with Co-codamol. They especially like the fact that Co-codamol is available in many different strengths.

Co-codamol and coughing

The codeine in Co-codamol does not only have a painkilling effect, it also helps to suppress coughing. Many customers use this painkiller to relieve persistent tickly coughs. This is especially convenient in situations where coughing is a problem, for instance during presentations, exams or official ceremonies. A tickly cough often gets worse when you lie down, so Co-codamol can also be used to get a better night’s sleep. However, it only works for persistent tickly coughs (dry coughs) caused by cold or flu viruses. For chesty coughs, you should use a cough medicine that helps you to cough up mucus (expectorant).
