Effective and cheap pain relief

Only for short term use-see side effects

HEY PRESTO, PAIN BE GONE! It's Not Magic-It's Co Codamol I first added Co Codamol to my medicine cupboard many years ago. This wasn't just for me but for all the grownups in my family. So, around the same time as I tied these tablets for severe headaches; so did one of my sons and my husband...

great pain relief, quick acting, easy to swallow

some side effects and can be addictive

Several years ago, whilst doing my job I was injured during a rather explosive incident, which put me out of action for a few months, laid up in a hospital bed, suffering with many different injuries, although I did manage to keep all my limbs, which was nice. But when I came out of the other end...

Gets rid of pain

Addictive

I have been taking Co Codamol as pain relief for about two years now. It is the only pain relief that really works for me. It is a general all over good pain relief. For me personally I take it for period pains, migraines and joint pains. It gets to work like no other pain killers do. I have...

I realise that all my reviews so far have had a nursing or drug theme so this is the last one promise! I will venture into another field… I have been taking co-codamol 30/500 for back pain and migraines for quite a while and they have proved to be an effective painkiller for me! So I am going to...

“Take that pain away ”

published 28/03/2012

Work well

Can be addictive

I received co-codamol after I had an operation to remove a dermoid cyst and as the pain from the operation lasted for a few weeks afterwards and paracetamol alone could not take it away the hospital gave me a 3 week course of these to take. What is co –codamol? They are a pain relief for mild and...

“I Should CoCo.”

published 15/12/2005

Relief from mold to moderate pain.

Respiratory Sedation.

After some light relief, I'm back to reviewing what I know and like. Drugs, medicinal science and research. Co-codamol takes the form of a combination of paracetamol and codeine. While paracetamol belongs to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), codeine is quite different...

Side effects can be strong, potential dependency

As I’m sure most women are, I’m well acquainted with the benefits of ibuprofen and paracetamol thanks to various womanly aches and pains, along with the odd headache. I’ve never needed anything more than these mild painkillers, until the end of last year when I developed a serious pain problem...

Can ease mild/moderate pain

Can be addictive, not too effective with moderate/...

As I suffer from a condition that leaves me with quite severe joint pain, I regularly take painkillers. For the majority of the time I take higher strength Paracetamol and codeine (co-dydramol) which are prescribed by my doctor but there have been occasions where I’ve either forgotten to take...

The Codeine in this Medication can be Addictive

I think it is quite common for people to reach straight for the Paracetemol as soon as they experience any kind of ache or pain, Paracetemol is so cheap and readily available and it's also one of the safest forms of medication around which is why I think it is so popular. But since taking Co...

Can cause addiction so take with care!!

Last week as I was getting out of bed to answer the phone (7.15am) I pulled my back really really badly. I was in so much pain I wanted to cry. As I believe that I have a high pain barrier this was unusual for me to want to cry, Knowing that I had given birth to my 5 children without the aid of...

effective fast pain relief

side effects, addiction risk

I occasionally suffer from lower back pain. Most times it is just a nasty twitch that does not need medication, other times I ‘do my back in’ so bad that I can barely keep upright and have to swallow pain killers by the bucket load. In case I get these pains, I have a whole host of prescription...

Strong fast working.

Side effects

I had never taken Cocodamol until last week. Over the years I'm had back trouble that usually lasts a day or two, no known reason for it just something that happens. Well last week if I was sat down it took me ages to get upright again and be able to move about, by the next day I could hardly...
