What are Co-codamol Effervescent Tablets and what do they do?

Co-codamol is a medicine containing the two active ingredients codeine and paracetamol. It is used to relieve severe pain in adults. These effervescent tablets contain 30mg of codeine, and 500mg of paracetamol.

Co-codamol relieves pain through two active ingredients. Paracetamol relieves pain and provides an antipyretic effect, meaning that it helps to lower raised temperatures and fever. Codeine relieves pain by binding to opioid receptors in the brain. This affects how the brain interprets pain and reduces the overall feeling of pain.

When are Co-codamol Effervescent Tablets prescribed?

Co-codamol is primarily prescribed when over the counter painkillers have provided little or no relief. It may be prescribed to relieve pain 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 Co-codamol Effervescent Tablets may lead to tolerance and dependence. It is important that you consult your own doctor before stopping your treatment or before adjusting the dose.
