Co-Codamol 100 x 30/500mg UK Pharma is a painkiller (analgesic) which is a mixture of codeine and paracetamol. It works in eliminating short-term pains, aches and back pain.
Co-codamol is available in the 30/500 strength, because it contains 30mg of codeine and 500mg of paracetamol in each tablet.
Co-Codamol is used for the treatment of acute moderate pain which is not considered to be relieved by other painkillers such as paracetamol, aspirin and ibuprofen.
Paracetamol is a painkilling drug that relieves mild to moderate pain. This is work by reducing the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord.
Codeine phosphate is a painkiller work by mimicking the action of natural pain-reducing chemicals called endorphins that are produced in the brain and spinal cord. It acts on the same opioid receptors as natural endorphins and this blocks the transmission of pain signals sent by the nerves to the brain.
