Co-Codamol Capsule 30/500 contains two active ingredients, paracetamol and codeine phosphate. The combination of the two active ingredients is effective at relieving severe pain.
What does Paracetamol do?
Paracetamol is a simple painkilling medicine used to relieve mild to moderate pain. Paracetamol increases our pain threshold, so that although the cause of the pain remains, we can feel it less.
What does Codeine do?
Codeine is a stronger painkiller known as an opioid. Opioid painkillers work by mimicking the action of naturally occurring pain-reducing chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins are found in the brain and spinal cord and reduce pain by combining with opioid receptors. Therefore, even though the cause of the pain may remain, less pain is actually felt.
Co-Codamol Capsule 30/500: Always take co-codamol exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
