What are Kapake Tablets and what do they do?

Kapake is a medicine containing the two active ingredients codeine phosphate and paracetamol. This medication is used to relieve severe pain in adults. These tablets contain 30mg of codeine, and 500mg of paracetamol.

Kapake relieves pain through use of its two active ingredients. Paracetamol relieves pain and provides an antipyretic effect, meaning that it helps to lower raised temperatures and fever. Codeine on the other hand, which is an opioid, relieves pain by binding to opioid receptors in the brain. This affects how the brain interprets pain and reduces the overall feeling of pain.

Can I buy Kapake over the counter?

No, Kapake is a Prescription Only Medicine, sometimes referred to as a “POM”. What this means to you is that you need a prescription from your GP or another registered doctor to obtain it. Doctor-4-U works closely with a team of registered doctors to offer you a convenient way of requesting prescriptions online.

For over the counter pain relief, you may want to discuss your options with your local pharmacist as there are several options available to help you manage your pain.

When are Kapake Tablets prescribed?

Kapake is primarily prescribed when over the counter painkillers have provided little or no relief. It may be prescribed to relieve short term discomfort and fever caused by headaches, migraine, back pain, period pain or other pain as advised by your GP or doctor.

Please note, prolonged use of Kapake Tablets may lead to tolerance and dependence. It is important that you consult your own doctor before stopping your treatment or before adjusting your dose.

Are Kapake Tablets suitable for my condition?

The suitability of this medication is determined by our doctor as some conditions and medicines may affect how Kapake works. Kapake is likely to be suitable if you have previously been prescribed this treatment, and as long as any of the below does not apply to you:

  • If you are allergic or sensitive to paracetamol, codeine or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.
  • If you are breast feeding.
  • If you suffer from severe kidney or liver disease.
  • If you know or has been told that you rapidly metabolise codeine into morphine.
  • If you suffer from breathing problems, such as asthma.
  • If you drink a lot of alcohol or drink alcohol every day.
  • If you have diarrhoea.
  • If you have recently had a gallbladder operation.

It is important that you inform our doctors of any other medication you may take, including non-prescription medicine, when you request your prescription. Please include this information when you fill in the medical questionnaire.

If you are unsure whether Kapake Tablets are suitable for you, always consult your doctor before use.

Never exceed the stated dose. Do not combine Kapake Tablets with any other medicine containing paracetamol.

Kapake doses for adults:

Take 1 - 2 tablets every four to six hours. Do not exceed 8 tablets in any 24 hour period.

Does Kapake Tablets cause any side effects?

Yes, you can reduce the risk of experiencing side effects by letting our doctor know about any other medicines you may take, along with any other health conditions you may have when filling in the medical questionnaire.

You are also advised by the doctor to not drink alcohol while taking Kapake as alcohol may increase the risk of side effects and may cause drowsiness.
