Paracodol is a range of analgesics used to relieve mild to moderate pain. It uses a combination of Paracetamol and Codeine to treat symptoms such as:
Cold and Flu.
Muscular and Rheumatic pain.
Paracetamol is a common painkiller and antipyretic (temperature reducer). When the body experiences an injury or pain it produces prostagaldins. Paracetamol blocks the production of these which makes the brain less aware of pain.
Codeine works by mimicking the body's own pain reducing chemicals called endorphins. The codeine, like the naturally occuring endorphins, connect with the opiod receptors in the brain to reduce pain signals transmitting from the body to the brain. This means that even when pain is present less pain is felt.
Included in the range are easy-to-swallow capsules in packs of 20 and 32 and soluble tablets in a pack of 32.
