One of my friends is a medical consultant and I heard about co-codamol from him for the first time. He has advised me to take co-codamol for any kind of joint or body pain. Once I was suffering from joint pain and doctor prescribed co-codamol, then I asked the doctor about this medicine. My doctor told me
‘Co-codamol is the best pain reliever and it contains paracetamol and a lesser amount of codeine, which helps to control pain very fast’.
There are lots of painkillers available on the market but most of them have side effects and they provide a short-term relief only. I took co-codamol and I know that it is the best pain reliever and I have been taking this medicine for bad headaches and migraine pains. I took this medicine for 3 days and after that my doctor advised me to take less doses of co-codamol for next few days and after I completed the course I was totally cured from the pain. I strongly believe that this medicine is the best painkiller.
At first, I took this medicine in frequent small doses e.g. 4 to 6 tablets in twenty four hours but there is a separate dose for different kinds of patients, so you should consult with your doctor and confirm what the best dose for you is. You should keep to the prescribed doses. According to the label and my doctors, the best recommended dose for adults is maximum 6 tablets in twenty four hours. Do not exceed your prescribed dose chart because overdose of co-codamol can have some adverse effects and it will hurt your liver also. So please stick to the doctor’s advice.
If you have liver disease or asthma or kidney infection then do not take co-codamol without prescription. Usually prescription is not needed for purchasing co-codamol in the weaker strengths. But the stronger versions need a doctors prescription. Here in the UK, you can get the 500mg paracetamol / 8mg codeine versions over the counter in any pharmacists. But this is not so strong. In fact, in the UK you can only get up to a 12.5 mg strength of codeine over the counter. The prescription medication is much stronger. You can get 500mg paracetamol with 30mg codeine with a prescription. This is a very strong painkiller indeed.
Co-codamol 30 / 500 – Prescription Strength
When I needed the stronger Co-codamol 30/500 pills, I went online. It is 100% legal to buy co-codamol online in the UK in the stronger versions. I found a website that was a licenced UK pharmacy and their doctor wrote me the prescription after an online consultation. I was very please. Co-codamol 30/500 works like a charm for me after taking just a few pills. So I don’t have to take too much of the paracetamol which is good as that stuff is terrible for you liver.
