Co-codamol is a pain relieving medication and is formulated from a mixture of codeine and paracetamol. Codeine is an opiate and generally used to treat coughs, pain and diarrhoea. Paracetamol is commonly given to children for pain and fever. It may help to use this combination of medication in cases where everyday pain relievers have not worked.
Together these therapeutics form a highly effective cold and flu remedy alleviating symptoms of fever and runny noses etc. Combination medicines are a great option as they offer the relief of more symptoms by taking fewer pills.
The strength of co-codamol tablets appear as two numbers on the packaging. These two numbers indicate the strength of codeine and paracetamol, respectively. For example, co-codamol 30/500 is an indication that a dose of 30 mg codeine and 500 mg paracetamol is formulated into the tablets. It is now possible to buy co-codamol online in various strengths without a prescription.
When you buy co-codamol 30/500 mg you have the added advantage of combining the therapeutic benefits of codeine and paracetamol. Codeine contains codeine phosphate, an ingredient which is known to provide pain relief by altering the way in which the brain responds to pain signals. Paracetamol works similarly.
Additionally, codeine decreases activity in the part of the brain which creates the coughing reflex, whereas paracetamol promotes heat loss and thereby reduces fevers. This loss of heat occurs through sweating and cutaneous vasodilation and hence assists with resetting the hypothalamic thermostat.
Paracetamol also acts as an anti-pyretic (reduces fever) by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are lipid compounds made by nearly all nucleated cells. At a site of tissue damage or infection, these compounds will be produced causing pain and inflammation. Paracetamol inhibits synthesis of these compounds and therefore helps alleviate pain.
Codeine helps to relieve symptoms of an ailment but it does not participate in the treatment thereof. Paracetamol assists to alleviate symptoms as well as treats the cause of pain and fever. Some of the conditions which these tablets may be used for can include:
