Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets

Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets provide short-term relief from acute moderate pain such as migraine, headache, cramping and period pain, dental pain, neuralgia, rheumatic and muscular pain and pain associated with sprains, strains, sciatica, lumbago and joint swelling.

Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets contain two active ingredients:
  • Aspirin: This belongs to a group of medicines knowns as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and provides relief by changing the body's response to pain, swelling and high temperature.
  • Codeine: This belongs to a group of medicines known as opoid analagesics and works to relieve pain.
Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets should be used for a maximum of 3 days at a time and only for pain which is not relieved by paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone. 
Adults, the elderly and children aged 16 years and older:
  • Take 1-2 tablets dissolved in water.
  • Leave at least 4 hours between doses.
  • Do not take more than 8 doses in any 24 hour period.
Do not take for more than 3 days. If you need to take this medicine for more than 3 days, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Active Ingredients: Aspirin 500mg and Codeine Phosphate 8mg.
  • Other Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, Maize Starch, Citric Acid, Talc, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and Saccharin.
  • Do not give this medicine to children under the age of 16 unless your doctor tells you. This is because there is a possible association between Aspirin and Reye's Syndrome when given to children. Reye's syndrome is a very rare disease, which can be fatal.
  • Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets contain codeine which can cause addiction if you take it continuously for more than 3 days. This can give you withdrawal symptoms from the medicine when you stop taking it.
  • If you take a painkiller for headaches for more than 3 days it can make them worse.
  • Do not drive or operate machines if you feel drowsy or dizzy. It is an offence to do so.
Do not take Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets:
  • If you have allergic to aspirin or any similar products.
  • If you suffer from haemophilia
  • If you have a stomach ulcer.
  • For pain relief in children and adolescents (0-18 years of age) after removal of their tonsils or adenoids due to obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.
  • If you know that you metabolise very rapidly codeine into morphine.
  • If you are in the last 3 months of pregnacy.
  • If you are breastfeeding. Codeine and morphine passes into breast milk.
Talk to your doctor before taking Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets:
  • Are in the first 6 months of pregnancy.
  • Are receiving regular medical treatment.
  • Have or have had asthma.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Codis 500 Dispersible Tablets if you are taking other medicines as the effect of treatments may be influenced if aspirin is taken at the same time as some other medicines for:
  • Thinning of the blood/prevention of clots (e.g. warfarin).
  • Organ rejection after transplantation (e.g. ciclosporin, tacrolimus).
  • High blood pressure (e.g. diuretics and ACE-inhibitors).
  • Pain and inflammation (e.g. anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen or steroids).
  • Gout (e.g. probenicid).
  • Cancer or rheumatoid arthritis (e.g. methotrexate).
