Paracodol (Codeine/Paracetamol) - 32 Soluble Tablets


Checked By

What is Paracodol?

Paracodol is 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.


What kinds of pain can this product help me with?

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:

  • Muscular pain
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Neuralgia
  • Headaches
  • A migraine
  • Period pain
  • A toothache
  • Other aches and pains


How will this product ease my pain?

Paracodol contains the active ingredients paracetamol and codeine, which work together to ease the 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.


How to take Paracodol

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 hours. You should only take Paracodol for a maximum of 3 days at a time. If you still require treatment after this time, speak to a Chemist 4 U pharmacist.


Why do I have to answer questions to buy this product?

You do not need a prescription for Paracodol, 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.
