Paramol Tablets FAQs
Paramol tablets contain paracetamol 500mg and dihydrocodeine 7.46mg per tablet. Paracetamol is a pain killer, that when combined with dihydrocodeine, can offer significant pain relief for conditions such as headache & migraine, dental pain, rheumatic & muscular pain, period pain, and neuralgia.
In adults and children 12 years and over, the dose of Paramol tablets is 1 or 2 tablets every 4 – 6 hours. You should not take more than 8 tablets in a 24-hour period.
You can combine Paramol with ibuprofen tablets and some topical pain relief such as Deep Heat, Ibuleve or CuraHeat patches. Paramol should not be taken with any other products containing paracetamol, dihydrocodeine or codeine.
Paramol contains dihydrocodeine, which is potentially addictive if misused. It is therefore advised that you do not take Paramol for more than 3 consecutive days. If you feel like you need to take Paramol tablets for more than 3 consecutive days because you are suffering with pain that is not getting better, you should consult your GP to discuss effective long-term pain relief.
Paramol is a painkiller that contains dihydrocodeine. For that reason, to ensure the safety of our patients and the legal operating of our pharmacy, we only supply one box of any codeine or dihydrocodeine containing treatment at one time.
Paramol tablets are not addictive if they are taken according to the manufacturers instructions. If they are used occasionally for short-term episodes of pain that last for no more than 3 days and the maximum dose is not exceeded, there is no need to worry.
Paramol tablets can become addictive if incorrectly used for long periods. If you are concerned about addiction to Paramol or dihydrocodeine, you should talk to your GP in confidence.
There is no specific need to take Paramol with or without food; it is down to personal preference.
No, Paramol tablets should be swallowed whole, not broken or crushed. They come in an easy-to-swallow caplet shape so you should have no problems swallowing them.
No, neither paracetamol or dihydrocodeine have any affect on asthma.
Even if you have previously had stomach problems including stomach ulcers, perforation or bleeding, you should not experience any problems when taking Paramol. It does not contain ibuprofen or aspirin therefore it should not cause any stomach issues, whether it is taken with or without food.
There should be no adverse effects on your liver if you take Paramol following the manufacturers instructions. It contains paracetamol which is toxic to the liver in overdose, it is therefore extremely important you do not exceed 8 Paramol tablets in 24 hours.
