Migraleve Yellow are pain relief tablets that help to ease migraine attacks. When used alongside Migraleve Pink, Migraleve Yellow tablets can help to relieve migraines and their symptoms, leaving you free from debilitating migraine pain.
Migraines are moderate to severe headaches that feel like a throbbing pain on one side of your head. Migraines can have auras, warning signs that will tell you that a migraine is about to happen, and these can be as uncomfortable as migraine symptoms themselves. Some of the most common symptoms of migraines and migraine auras include:
Migraleve Yellow contains two active ingredients which work together to treat migraines when taken alongside Migraleve Pink. The active ingredients in Migraleve Yellow are paracetamol and codeine, two painkillers that can be used together to help to ease the pain that cannot be managed with just paracetamol or other painkillers alone. This makes Migraleve Yellow and Migraleve Pink the perfect remedy for painful migraines.
You should not use these tablets if you have taken any other painkillers within the past 4 hours. Also, you should not use this product if you are taking other medication which contains paracetamol. For more advice about taking painkillers, please speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist.
You should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking these tablets if you are using any other medication, including those obtained without a prescription. Some medications can interact when used together, causing unwanted side effects or making your medication less effective. You should especially speak to a medical professional before using this product if you are taking:
Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking this or any other medication if you are pregnant, to be sure that this product is safe for you and your baby at this time. You should not take Migraleve if you are breastfeeding, as both the pink and yellow tablets contain codeine. Codeine should not be taken if you are breastfeeding as it metabolises into morphine, and both of these substances can pass to your baby through your breast milk.
This product can make you feel sleepy or dizzy, do not attempt to drive or use tools or machinery until you are sure that you are not affected in this way.
You do not need a prescription for Migraleve Yellow, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that this product is the best choice for you.

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.
