Description

Paracetamol and Codeine Tablets

Each tablet contains 500mg paracetamol and 8mg codeine phosphate.

Therapeutic indications
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.

Codeine is indicated in patients older than 12 years of age for the treatment of acute moderate pain which is not considered to be relieved by other analgesics such as paracetamol or ibuprofen (alone).

Posology

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

Adults: Two tablets, taken with a glass of water every four to six hours when necessary up to a maximum of 8 tablets in 24 hours.

Children aged 16 to 18 years: One to two tablets every 6 hours when necessary up to a maximum of 8 tablets in 24 hours.

Children aged 12 to 15 years: One tablet every six hours when necessary to a maximum of four tablets in 24 hours.

Paediatric population

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 (see section 4.3 and 4.4).

Method of administration

For oral administration.

Contraindications
• Hypersensitivity to the active substances or any of the other excipients listed in section 6.1.

• In all paediatric patients (0-18 years of age) who undergo tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy for obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome due to an increased risk of developing serious and life-threatening adverse reactions (see section 4.4)

Special warnings and precautions for use

Care is advised in the administration of paracetamol to patients with severe renal or severe hepatic impairment. The hazard of overdose is greater in those with non-cirrhotic alcoholic liver disease.

Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of an overdose, even if you feel well, because of the risk of delayed, serious liver damage.
