Is co-codamol good for toothaches?

Co-codamol consists of two painkillers – paracetamol and codeine. Paracetamol is a medication that is used to relieve pain and fever, while codeine is an opioid pain medication. Codeine works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, which blocks the perception of pain. It's used to treat various aches and pains including headaches, muscular pain, migraines and toothache. You can buy codeine from EU Meds.

Another common question is whether you should take co codamol for headache. Read the article linked here to learn more.

Is Co-Codamol 8/500 good for toothache?

A doctor will typically not directly prescribe the most powerful painkillers without first ensuring that less-potent painkillers have been tried. Once mild painkillers have proven ineffective, a doctor will then prescribe a stronger medication. If you have a toothache, a good place to start would be co-codamol 8/500 because it is one of the strongest painkillers over the counter UK. Ask any pharmacist for 8/500 co-codamol and you should be able to buy it without a prescription.

Co-codamol caplets also come in strengths of 15/500 and 30/500 (30mg of codeine with 500mg paracetamol). These strengths are prescription-only, so cannot be purchased over-the-counter. We sell 30/500 co-codamol here at EU Meds. We also have branded versions of co-codamol, such as Zapain. Because it only comes in 30/500, you cannot buy zapain over the counter UK.

Co-codamol over the counter?

To answer the question, "can you get co codamol over the counter?", the answer is "yes" (in the strength of 8/500mg). This is the only way to buy codeine over the counter UK, when combined with paracetamol in the strength of 8mg codeine to 500mg paracetamol. If you wish to get a more powerful co-codamol, you will need a prescription.
