Codogesic tablet 15mg (Codeine Phosphate) Paracetamol 500 mg 100 tablets by Wilson`s Pharmaceuticals
Codogesic tablet 15mg (Codeine Phosphate) is used to treat mild to moderate pain. It acts on certain centers in the brain to give you pain relief. Codogesic tablet 15mg (Codeine Phosphate) is a narcotic pain reliever (opiate-type). If you have any questions about using this medication properly, consult your doctor or pharmacist. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For children, the dosage is also based on weight or body size. If you are extremely drowsy after using Codogesic tablet 15mg (Codeine Phosphate), consult your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your dosage may need to be lowered. Pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the pain has worsened, Codogesic tablet 15mg (Codeine Phosphate) may not work as well. You may also take long-acting narcotic medications or use narcotic patches for ongoing pain if so directed by your doctor. Follow your doctor’s or pharmacist’s instructions for safely using non-narcotic pain relievers (e.g., naproxen, ibuprofen).
Nausea, vomiting, constipation, increased sweating, lightheadedness, dizziness, or drowsiness may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. To prevent constipation, maintain a diet adequate in fiber, drink plenty of water, and exercise. If you become constipated while using this drug, consult your pharmacist for help in selecting a laxative (e.g., stimulant-type with stool softener). Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
