Paracodol are soluble pain relief tablets which help to ease aches and pains that cannot be managed with painkillers such as aspirin or ibuprofen alone. These tablets dissolve in water, making them ideal for those who struggle to swallow whole tablets and need quick, effective pain relief.
Paracodol can be used to ease many different kinds of moderate aches and pains. Some of the most popular reasons why people use these soluble tablets include:
Paracodol contains the active ingredients paracetamol and codeine, which work together to ease pain that cannot be handled with painkillers such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or paracetamol alone. Paracetamol is a popular everyday painkiller which can also help to reduce high temperature and fever. Codeine is a part of a group of medicines called opioid analgesics, which means that it helps to ease pain and can be used alongside other painkillers such as paracetamol.
Dissolve one dose of Paracodol in a glass of water before taking. For adults over the age of 18, one dose is 1 – 2 Paracodol tablets. For children aged between 12 – 18, one dose is 1 Paracodol tablet. Leave 4 – 6 hours between each dose and do not take more than 4 doses of this product in any 24-hour period.
