Painkillers are there to help you to get on with your life even though you have a painful condition. Medium strength painkillers such as Codeine and Dihydrocodeine may cause dependency, upon which you should contact your GP.

We've asked (our favourite) doctor Dr Christian Jessen

to explain Pain Relief and the treatments available

Codeine is a narcotic pain-reliever and cough suppressant similar to morphine and hydrocodone. Moreover, a small amount of codeine is converted to morphine in the body. The precise mechanism of action of codeine is not known; however, like morphine, codeine binds to receptors in the brain (opioid receptors) that are important for transmitting the sensation of pain throughout the body and brain. Codeine increases tolerance to pain, decreasing discomfort, but the pain still is apparent to the patient. In addition to reducing pain, codeine also causes sedation drowsiness and depresses breathing. Codeine frequently is combined with acetaminophen (Tylenol) or aspirin for more effective pain relief.

As with any opioid drug product, adjust the dosing regimen for each patient individually, taking into account the patient's prior analgesic treatment experience. In the selection of the initial dose of codeine sulfate, attention should be given to the following:

  • the total daily dose, potency and specific characteristics of the opioid the patient has been taking previously;
  • the reliability of the relative potency estimate used to calculate the equivalent codeine sulfate dose needed;
  • the patient's degree of opioid tolerance;
  • the general condition and medical status of the patient;
  • concurrent medications;
  • the type and severity of the patient's pain;
  • risk factors for abuse, addiction or diversion, including a prior history of abuse, addiction or diversion.

The following dosing recommendations, therefore, can only be considered suggested approaches to what is actually a series of clinical decisions over time in the management of the pain of each individual patient.

  • Codeine is used to relieve mild to moderate pain. It is also used, usually in combination with other medications, to reduce coughing. Combination products that contain codeine and promethazine should not be used in children younger than 16 years of age. Codeine will help relieve symptoms but will not treat the cause of symptoms or speed recovery. Codeine belongs to a class of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics and to a class of medications called antitussives. When codeine is used to treat pain, it works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. When codeine is used to reduce coughing, it works by decreasing the activity in the part of the brain that causes coughing.

    Codeine is also available in combination with acetaminophen (Capital and Codeine, Tylenol with Codeine); aspirin; and carisoprodol; and as an ingredient in many cough and cold medications. This monograph only includes information about the use of codeine. If you are taking a codeine combination product, be sure to read information about all the ingredients in the product you are taking and ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

    Co Codamol

    What is Co Codamol? The name of your medicine is Co-codamol 30/500 Tablets (called co-codamol throughout this leaflet). Co-codamol contains two different medicines called codeine phosphate and paracetamol. Codeine belongs to a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which act to relieve pain.


    Dihydrocodeine is an opioid medicine (sometimes called an opiate). It is used to treat moderate-to-severe types of pain. It works by binding to certain tiny areas, called opioid receptors, in your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).


This is a pain medication that contains opioids. They are also called narcotics. While it is a powerful pain medication, it is issued by prescription only because of its tendency to cause addiction.

  • Codeine UK

    • Over-the-Counter Pain Relievers

      Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers include:

      • Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
      • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn)

      Both acetaminophen and NSAIDs reduce fever and relieve pain caused by muscle aches and stiffness, but only NSAIDs can also reduce inflammation (swelling and irritation). Acetaminophen and NSAIDs also work differently. NSAIDs relieve pain by reducing the production of prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that cause pain. Acetaminophen works on the parts of the brain that receive the "pain messages." NSAIDs are also available in a prescription strength that can be prescribed by your physician.

      Using NSAIDs increase the risk of heart attack or stroke and have also been known to cause stomach ulcers and bleeding. They can also cause kidney problems.

      Topical pain relievers are also available without a doctor's prescription. These products include creams, lotions, or sprays that are applied to the skin in order to relieve pain from sore muscles and arthritis. Some examples of topical pain relievers include Aspercreme, Ben-Gay, Icy Hot, and Capzasin-P.

    • Prescription Pain Relievers

      Prescription pain relievers include:

      • Corticosteroids
      • Opioids
      • Antidepressants
      • Anticonvulsants (anti-seizure medications)
      • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
      • Lidocaine patches
  • Codeine Pills

    This drug can be habit forming. It is important to only use the dosage prescribed to you by your physician. Codeine should not be given to a child just after surgery, especially not to treat pain from having tonsils removed or adenoids.

  • Dihydrocodeine

    Dihydrocodeine is a semi-synthetic opioid analgesic prescribed for pain or severe dyspnea, or as an antitussive, either alone or compounded with paracetamol (as in co-dydramol) or aspirin.

    Dihydrocodeine is used to relieve moderate to severe pain caused by diseases such as sciatia, Paget's disease and shingles. It is considered a moderate painkiller, and may be prescribed with paracetamol or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug to control moderate pain. Dihydrocodeine is more effective working together with paracetemol than when taken separately.

    Dihydrocodeine is effective at treating moderate to severe pain including pain of sciatica (which is nerve pain of the legs and back). It also treats joint and bone pain (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis of the spine). It treats nerve pain, and pain following blood vessel disease, cancer or after an operation.

    Co Codamol

    Co codamol 30/500 tablets contain two different medicines, called codeine phosphate and paracetemol. Codeine is part of a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which relieve pain. Co codamol is used for short term relief of severe pain. Codeine doesn't work as well on its own as it does when combined with paracetamol. You can buy Co Codamol (paracetemol with a low dose of codeine) over the counter. Higher doses need to be prescribed.
