You can easily buy co-codamol 30/500 mg online, and they are available as white and round tablets. They are also known as capsules and in different strengths.
Working Of Co-codamol:
Paracetamol and codeine are the two active ingredients that go into making co-codamol 30/500 mg.
Paracetamol is effective in treating pain because it blocks the effects of substances produced by the body in response to trauma. Prostaglandins are the name given to these chemical compounds. Pain is heightened due to prostaglandins’ effect on the nervous system. You may experience less pain or none if the amount of prostaglandin produced is decreased. The drug codeine belongs to the opioid family. Opioids relieve pain by acting similarly to endorphins, the body’s naturally occurring painkillers. They do this by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Opioids can range from powerful to relatively ineffective, depending on their specific chemical makeup. Codeine is a relatively weak opioid.
Buy co-codamol 30/500 mg for adults who are facing severe pain. The dose administration is that adults and adolescents older than 16 years old can take one or two tablets (of any strength) up to a maximum of four times within 24 hours. Always leave a gap between doses of at least four to six hours. The maximum number of co-codamol tablets taken in one day is 8. It is essential to allow time between each dose of co-codamol. Taking an excessive amount of co-codamol can put you in grave danger. This is because it contains paracetamol, which is known to be harmful to the liver. Even if the pain is very severe, you should not increase the co-codamol you are taking or take two doses at once.
The duration of treatment should not exceed three days; if there is no significant improvement, the patient should be encouraged to consult a medical professional.
