Codis 500 (Aspirin/Codeine Phosphate) - 32 Tablets

£4.99

What is Codeine Phosphate and when is it used?

The active ingredients (which make Codis 500 work) are Aspirin and Codeine Phosphate. Aspirin belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs provide relief by changing the body’s response to pain, swelling, and high temperature. This product contains codeine. Codeine belongs to a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which act to relieve pain. It can be used on its own or in combination with other pain killers such as paracetamol. Codeine is a painkiller related to morphine which acts upon the central nervous system to reduce the communication of pain messages.

 

How will it treat my symptoms

Codeine Phosphate works by mimicking the action of naturally occurring pain-reducing chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins are found in the brain and spinal cord and reduce pain by combining with opioid receptors. Codeine mimics the action of natural endorphins by combining with the opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord. This blocks the transmission of pain signals sent by the nerves to the brain. Therefore, even though the cause of the pain may remain, less pain is felt.

 

Can I buy Codeine Phosphate Over the Counter?

Yes, you don’t need a prescription to buy this dose, but a pharmacist will need to ensure the treatment is suitable and safe for you.

 

Active Ingredients:

Savlon Antiseptic Cream contains Cetrimide 0.5% w/w & Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.1% w/w, the medicine also contains Cetostearyl Alcohol, Liquid Paraffin, Methyl hydroxybenzoate, Propylhydroxybenzoate, Perfume and Purified Water

 

Does Codeine Phosphate cause any side effects?

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. This includes any possible side effects not listed in this leaflet. Stop using this medicine and seek medical help immediately if you have any of the following very rare allergic reactions: difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, tongue or throat, dizziness, skin irritation or rash. If you experience these or other side effects, stop using and seek medical advice.

 

What is the recommended dosage of this treatment?

Do not take for more than 3 days. If you need to use this medicine for more than three days you must speak to your doctor.

  • Take 1 or 2 tablets dissolved in water
  • Leave at least four hours between doses
  • Do not take more than 8 tablets in any 24 hours
  • Do not give to children under 16 years unless prescribed by a doctor
 

How should I store these tablets?

Keep out of the reach and sight of children. Do not use Codis 500 after the expiry date stated on the carton after expiry.

 

Why do I need to fill in an online questionnaire to buy this product?

Some over the counter medicines are only allowed to be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist. Codeine Phosphate is one of these medicines.

Just like when you buy this medicine in a high street or local pharmacy, the pharmacist will need to ask you a few questions. This is a legal requirement for selling this type of medicine.

You may not always realise when your local pharmacist asks you the required questions, as this can sometimes be done subtly. When sold online, we need to make sure our pharmacists have all the information they need to ensure this treatment is right for you.

Simply fill in the short questionnaire and add the product to cart. Then proceed to checkout.

Getting a headache or a migraine is one of the most uncomfortable feelings you can have, and potentially one of the most painful as well. There is a wide range of treatments out there that say that they help clear headaches and migraines but which ones are the most suitable?

Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.

This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?

If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.

Headaches and migraines are a real pain in the neck, or well, a pain in the head, but how do you know if you’re dealing with a migraine or a headache?

Both of them cause a lot of pain in your head, but what is the difference between the two?

If you’re not sure whether the head pain that’s making you feel extra grumpy every Monday morning is a headache or a migraine then you’re in luck, as we’re about to break down what makes the two so different.

You might have heard of codeine, maybe you’ve been prescribed it for pain or as a cough medicine, but what is it really?

Today we’re going to take a good look at codeine and answer all of the questions you’ve been asking about this medication and what it can do.
