Zapain Experiences

The painkiller Zapain is a combination of two medicines, paracetamol and codeine. It is mainly used for moderate to severe pain when paracetamol alone does not provide adequate pain relief. Customers who have used Zapain are very positive about this painkiller. The fact that it takes a very short time to take effect is often mentioned as a plus.

Zapain and pain relief

Zapain contains codeine, which a morphine-like painkiller. It blocks the transmission of pain signals via the central nervous system. Paracetamol suppresses pain in a different way, which is what makes this combination so effective. Zapain reduces fever and pain caused by rheumatic disorders (arthritis, arthrosis, gout), as well as migraine, menstrual pain, and pain from injury or surgery. It is also commonly used to treat the flu and common cold.

Zapain and coughing

Many people are positive about Zapain as a remedy for tickly coughs. This is because codeine is also a cough suppressant. Therefore, Zapain is commonly used for the flu or a cold accompanied by coughing. This is especially convenient in situations where coughing is a problem, for instance during a concert, wedding or exam. A tickly cough can also get in the way of a good night’s sleep. Taking Zapain right before bedtime will help you to sleep through the night. Do not use Zapain for chesty coughs. If you have a chesty cough, then use an expectorant to cough up the mucus.
