Product description

Combination of paracetamol and codeine for short term pain relief.

LloydsPharmacy co-codamol 8mg/500mg 32 tablets is a mixture of two different painkillers and is used to treat pain associated with headaches, muscular pain, migraines and toothache. It is a powerful analgesic meaning it gets to work quickly and provides temporary relief from common aches and pains.

Co-codamol is a mixture of paracetamol and codeine and is usually taken when everyday painkillers (such as aspirin, ibuprofen and paracetamol) alone haven't worked. These tablets are easy to swallow and are a reliable source of short-term pain relief but should not be used for more than three days.
