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.

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 throughout the body and brain. Codeine increases tolerance to pain, decreasing discomfort, but 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 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 promethazine should not be used in children younger than 16 years of age. It 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 it is used as treatment, it works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. When it 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 use. If you are taking a 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.
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.
In the UK, it is issued by prescription to treat mild to moderately severe pain. It is possible to be allergic to this drug. Avoid using it if you have uncontrolled breathing disorder, as it can potentially slow or stop your breathing.
What is pain relief? It is a method to achieve relief, predominantly by pain medicine. Drugs online UK make it convenient for you to order prescription meds and have it delivered (usually) next day across the entire UK. Pain drugs can help relieve your sore muscles and other causes for intense pain.
They are prescription strength medicine which are formulated to give relief. Buy opiate pain meds online and strong painkiller medicine from the convenience of your home by using an online doctor's service such as the one found at UK Meds. This includes codeine medicine you can buy legally online.
Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers include:
Both acetaminophen and NSAIDs reduce fever and relieve discomfort 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 relievers include Aspercreme, Ben-Gay, Icy Hot, and Capzasin-P.
Prescription relievers include:
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.
This is a controlled substance which requires a proper prescription. Here at UK Meds, we are able to issue an electronic prescription once you have completed our questionnaire. When ordering, make sure your doctor knows whether you have taken medication for depression, mental illness, Parkinson's disease, migraine headaches or nausea and vomiting.
It comes in several doses, 15mg to 60mg. They can be taken, with doctor's permission, up to 6 times per day. The maximum daily dose when combined is 300mg, or as prescribed by your doctor.
Above you will see a link to our 30mg tablets. There are several other pain relief medications available above. Your doctor will help you decide which pain relief medication is right for you.
Dihydrocodeine is a semi-synthetic opioid analgesic prescribed for severe dyspnea, or as an antitussive, either alone or compounded with paracetamol (as in co-dydramol) or aspirin.
Dihydrocodeine is used to treat 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. Dihydrocodeine is more effective working together with paracetemol than when taken separately.
Dihydrocodeine is effective at treating moderate to severe pain including that of sciatica (which affects nerves of the legs and back). It also treats joint and bone pain (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis of the spine). It treats nerve and blood vessel discomfort from cancer or after an operation.
Co codamol 30/500 tablets contain two different medicines, called codeine phosphate and paracetemol. It is part of a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which relieve pain. Co codamol is used for short term relief. It 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.
We've all experienced pain, headaches, sore muscles, arthritis and injuries. Pain can reach from mild to unbearable, but can nearly always be addressed by the right medications.
Sometimes, over the counter medicines such as paracetemol or ibuprofen can be enough, but if you have tried these and they haven't helped, a doctor may be able to prescribe you something more effective.
Remember, stronger pain medications can have potential drawbacks. Opioids can be highly addictive and should only be used under a doctor's supervision.
Discontinuing these medications suddenly after prolonged use can cause withdrawal symptoms so you should never do this without professional advice.
