What is Co-Codamol?

Co-Codamol is a combination of Paracetamol and Codeine that is used for pain relief. Indicated for moderate to severe pain that cannot be relieved by regular painkillers like Paracetamol or Ibuprofen. It is considered as short-term relief of mild to moderate headache, migraines, toothache, sore throat, muscular, rheumatic pain, and backache.

How does Co-Codamol work?

Since it is a combination of 2 pain relievers, there are different mechanisms on how each active ingredient works. Paracetamol works by decreasing the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord to alleviate the pain. Prostaglandins are known to sensitize nerve endings hence; it is responsible for the pain that we feel. By reducing prostaglandins in the body, it increases our threshold for pain. While codeine on the other hand, is a slightly stronger pain reliever. It falls under the class of opioids where it works by imitating the effect of natural pain-reducing substances endorphins that are produced in the brain and spinal cord. It acts how normal endorphins would where it blocks the transmission of pain signals sent by the nerves to the brain. In conclusion, even if the cause of pain remains, less pain is perceived and felt.

The benefit of Co-Codamol is it has different dosage strengths to choose from. Co-codamol capsule can be used for different kinds of pain such as headaches, toothaches, ear pain, joint pain, periods pain, fever, colds and even pain associated with the flu.
