A nerve or tissue damage, an injury or surgical procedure, and any other medical condition that triggers an unpleasant sensation can be a reason for pain. It would be an indication that something went wrong with your body and that may need immediate medical assistance. However, the doctor recommends pain relievers such as co-codamol to treat headaches, arthritis, sore muscles, or other severe to moderate pains. The combination of codeine and paracetamol in this drug enhances its pain-relieving effects. You can buy co-codamol 30mg/500mg online from Super Meds to ease the hassle of visiting your nearby pharmacy.

Co-Codamol 30mg/500mg

Characteristics & Uses of Co-codamol 30/500

As the name suggests, co-codamol is a combination of two drugs: codeine and paracetamol. This compound drug is prescribed to relieve severe pain. Codeine is an opioid category drug that is recognized as a pain reliever. Opioid-category medicines can cause addiction and upon leaving this medicine, you may have to experience withdrawal effects. Likewise, paracetamol also has analgesic properties so this combination is really effective to treat such painful conditions where paracetamol or ibuprofen cannot work well all alone. Co-codamol is effective to relieve pain caused by migraines, muscular pain, toothache, and headaches. This drug is available in both capsule and tablet form. When you buy co-codamol 30mg/500mg, each of its tablet or capsule forms contains 30mg codeine and 500mg paracetamol along with other ingredients.
