Drug Description

Open in Wikipedia

Codeine/acetaminophen, also known as co-codamol, is a compound analgesic consisting of a combination of codeine phosphate and paracetamol (acetaminophen). Co-codamol tablets are used for the relief of mild to moderate pain when acetaminophen or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, aspirin or naproxen alone do not sufficiently relieve a patient's symptoms, or where their use is ill-advised. Co-codamol is marketed under various brand names in addition to the generic name. In the UK, consultant neurologist Russell Lane said that the public was "poisoning themselves with painkillers".
