Description

Paramol Tablets are effective pain relievers and can help to relieve mild to moderate pain forms such as:

  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Period pain
  • Toothache
  • Dental pain
  • Backache
  • Muscular aches
  • Joint pain
  • Neuralgia
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Rheumatic pain

How will these dihydrocodeine tablets help to ease my pain?

Paramol tablets contain the active ingredients paracetamol 500mg and dihydrocodeine 7.46mg, which work together to ease pains that can’t be relieved using other painkillers, such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin alone. Paracetamol is an everyday painkiller which can also be used to reduce high temperature and fever. Dihydrocodeine is a powerful analgesic, which can be used alongside other painkillers to relieve moderate pains.

Is dihydrocodeine addictive?

If you take dihydrocodeine in tablets like Paramol then you’re very unlikely to become addicted if you follow the instructions of your pharmacist or the manufacturer carefully. However, if you’re taking this product for a long time, even under medical supervision, then you may become dependent on it and will need to reduce your dosage gradually before stopping completely. Those who take dihydrocodeine as a recreational drug are more likely to become addicted than those who take this product for pain relief.

What symptoms will I experience if I become addicted to this medication?

If you do become addicted to Paramol or dihydrocodeine, there are a few signs you will notice. For example, you may notice that you need to take this medication for longer periods or need to take more than the recommended daily dose to get the desired effect. You may also find that if you stop taking this medication suddenly you experience unpleasant symptoms as your body goes through withdrawal. These symptoms include feeling sick, shaking, sweating, or feeling nervous, restless, or agitated. If you’re worried that you may be addicted to this medication and are unsure what to do, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
