    Google Web Story - A-Z Guide of Co-Codamol

    Take a look at EU Meds Google Web Story, a handy visual A-Z guide of terms that relate to Co-Codamol:

    Co-codamol tablets contain both paracetamol and codeine.

    Paracetamol works by blocking the chemical messengers of pain. This means that our sensation of pain is reduced. 

    Codeine is a form of opiate pain relief. Codeine blocks the signals of pain that would normally travel along nerve cells. This means that the pain messages do not reach the brain, further reducing our sensation of pain.

    Taking two different types of pain relief medication can be a more effective way of managing pain. Combining the drugs in one tablet also minimises the number of medications a person needs to take each day.

    Co-codamol Tablets

    Co-codamol is available as a tablet or capsule. These can be taken with or without food.

    Co-codamol is sometimes prescribed as a soluble tablet which some people find easier to take.

    Co-Codamol 30/500mg

    There are three different strengths of co-codamol available. The amount of paracetamol in each preparation is the same, but the amount of codeine varies from 8mg to 30mg per tablet. 

    The following strengths of co-codamol tablets are available: 

    1. 8mg of codeine and 500mg of paracetamol per tablet
    2. 15mg of codeine and 500mg of paracetamol per tablet
    3. 30mg of codeine and 500mg of paracetamol per tablet.

    The usual dose is 1 or 2 tablets of any strength up to 4 times daily. There should be 6 hours between each dose, and the maximum number of tablets you can take in a 24 hour period is 8 tablets.

    It is common for 2 tablets to be taken at a time. This equals a dose of 1000mg (1 gram) of paracetamol, which is the maximum recommended amount of paracetamol per dose. You must therefore not take any other paracetamol containing medications whilst taking co-codamol.

    Codeine can become additive when taken long term. Over a long period, some people can become dependent on codeine or experience symptoms of withdrawal when stopping it. Your prescriber will talk to you about your likely course of treatment and when you can expect to stop taking it to avoid dependence.

    Like all medications, co-codamol can have some side effects. The most common side effects include:

    • Constipation
    • Nausea and vomiting (feeling sick and being sick)
    • Feeling sleepy
    • Headache
    • Withdrawal symptoms - including sweating, shaking, shivering, diarrhoea, loss of appetite, feeling queasy, high blood pressure, anxiety and struggling to sleep.

    If these side effects are troublesome or do not settle, you should speak to a doctor or healthcare professional for advice.

    Occasionally, more serious side effects can occur when taking co-codamol. Serious side effects include:

    • Skin rashes
    • Change in your vision
    • Feeling dizzy
    • Difficulty passing urine (peeing).

    You should speak to a doctor straight away if you notice one of these more serious side effects.

    If you have a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) including breathlessness, lip or tongue swelling, call 999 immediately.

    It is important that your doctor checks that co-codamol will suit you. Your doctor should complete a thorough health questionnaire and review your current medications before prescribing this medication.

    Co-codamol FAQ's

    Co-codamol contains paracetamol and codeine. Codeine is a type of opioid drug (opioid analgesic. Opioids are also the same class of drug as tramadol and dihydrocodeine).

    Typically, over the counter painkillers such as ibuprofen (NSAIDs) are the most common painkillers for period pain (working to lower prostaglandin production). However, paracetamol may be more suitable for patients who suffer from stomach ulcers and asthma. Co-codamol (which is a combination of codeine and paracetamol) may be medicine prescribed for stronger period pain relief as a short term treatment (due to potential addiction. It should not be used for more than 3 days.). In all cases your doctor, pharmacist or healthcare provider will advise on the best suited painkiller for you.

    According to a study by Wong et al (2011), it concluded that 'opioid analgesics suppress male gonadal function, but opioid use in men and women does not correlate with symptoms of sexual dysfunction'.

    According to a study by Heppell and Isbister (2017), it concluded that 'Paracetamol‐codeine combination overdoses are rarely associated with severe respiratory depression'.
