Overview

For the short-term treatment of acute moderate pain which is not relieved by paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone such as headaches, migraine, neuralgia, toothache, dysmenorrhoea, and rheumatic pain.

Co-codamol should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest period of time. This dose may be taken, up to 4 times a day at intervals of not less than 6 hours. Maximum daily dose should not exceed 8 tablets in any 24 hour period.

Do not take continuously for more than 3 days without consulting your doctor.

Children aged less than 12 years:

  • Codeine should not be used in children below the age of 12 years because of the risk of opioid toxicity due to the variable and unpredictable metabolism of codeine to morphine

Children 12-15 years:

  • One tablet dissolved in water every 6 hours when necessary to a maximum of 4 tablets in 24 hours

Children 16-18 years:

  • One to two tablets every 6 hours when necessary to a maximum of 8 tablets in 24 hours

Adults:

  • One to two tablets dissolved in water every 6 hours as required, to a maximum of 8 tablets in 24 hours

Elderly:

  • Dosage should be reduced in the elderly where there is impairment of hepatic function

For oral administration only.

The duration of treatment should be limited to 3 days and if no effective pain relief is achieved the patients/carers should be advised to seek the views of a physician. Administration should be avoided during the late stages of labour and during the delivery of a premature infant.
