Co-dydramol is a medicine that contains two main ingredients – paracetamol and dihydrocodeine tartrate.
Paracetamol is a form of analgesic painkiller that can be bought over-the-counter on its own. It can help relieve pain and is also used to help lower a temperature.
Dihydrocodeine is a stronger form of opioid painkiller used to help moderate pain. When combined, the two ingredients form a strong pain killing medication that works effectively in the battle against moderate pain.
Co-dydramol is normally prescribed for moderate pain in your muscles or joints. For example, you may be advised to take it if you have pain or inflammation caused by arthritis, sprains or strains. It's sometimes also used to ease pain following an operation.
Co-dydramol tablets can be purchased over-the-counter, however these doses are weak. For fast and effective relief from moderate pain, Prescription Doctor can provide a prescription of higher strength Co-dydramol.
Co-dydramol medication is best taken with or after you’ve eaten food. You may find it easier to remember to take it alongside a meal or snack.
It’s important to always take Co-dydramol as advised by a doctor or pharmacist. The usual tablet dosage for adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over is one to two tablets every four to six hours as required.
Remember to read the information that comes with your medication. If you have any further questions, chat live online to a doctor now.
In order to get the most from your treatment with Co-dydramol, always follow the advice given to you with your prescription.
Avoid driving or operating machinery when taking Co-dydramol as side effects can include blurred vision and dizziness.
Due to drug driving laws introduced in the UK in 2015, it may be an offence for you to drive a vehicle whilst you are taking this medicine, if it is impairing your driving or making you drive dangerously.
Avoid alcohol when taking Co-dydramol as it may interfere with the medication and worsen side effects.
Don't exceed the prescribed dose.
It is safe to take aspirin or ibuprofen alongside Co-dydramol. Do not take products containing paracetamol while taking Co-dydramol as this can raise the risk of an overdose on paracetamol which can seriously damage your liver.
If you suspect you have taken paracetamol alongside your normal dosage of co-dydramol, contact your GP or a medical professional immediately, regardless of whether you are feeling fine.
Read all the patient information leaflet carefully before you start taking this medicine.
Co-dydramol contains paracetamol as well as an opioid called dihydrocodeine. Together, they provide a more effective analgesic effect than if either of the ingredients were taken independently.
Opioid painkillers can have a lethargic effect which may hinder your alertness and ability to drive.
If you feel your concentration affected by the medication you are taking, it is strongly advised not to drive.
For more information, check out the laws on drug driving.
No. You should never take two codeine products together.
Furthermore, as both co-codamol and co-dydramol also contain 500 mg of paracetamol, it is strongly advised never to mix two products which contain paracetamol. Taking too much paracetamol can seriously damage your liver.
Codeine addiction can be both physical and psychological. With repeated use, the body becomes accustomed to the drug. Withdrawal symptoms may occur once it is no longer present in your system. A psychological urge to recreate the feeling associated with codeine phosphate may remain long after the medication is gone.
If addiction is a concern, speak to your GP or visit talktofrank.com for more advice.
