What are Co-Codamol Effervescent Tablets?

Co-Codamol Effervescent Tablets are made from two different painkillers, paracetamol and codeine that work as fast-acting pain relief. It is primarily used to treat aches and pains such as migraines, toothaches and muscular pain. Due to the presence of codeine within Co-codamol, it is highly recommended not to take this medication for more than 3 days due to the potential for codeine addiction. 

How does it work?

Co-Codamol Effervescent Tablets combine paracetamol and codeine to pain by blocking pain signals from the brain to the rest of the body. 

Are Co-Codamol Effervescent Tablets suitable for me?

If everyday painkillers, such as aspirin, ibuprofen or paracetamol have not relieved your symptoms. Co-Codamol Effervescent Tablets may be right for you. Consult your physician for the best treatment.
