Panadol Ultra Tablets

Panadol Ultra Tablets are for the short term treatment of acute moderate pain, including migraine, headache, dental pain, period pain, backache, arthritic & rheumatic pain, strains & sprains and sciatica. Suitable for adults and children over 12 years of age, they contain two painkillers: codeine and paracetamol. These work on your body in different ways, so this combination provides powerful pain relief.

Panadol Ultra Tablets contain codeine and should only be used for pain that is not relieved by other painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen alone. They should be taken for a maximum of 3 days. 
Adults aged 18 and over: Swallow 2 tablets every 4 hours as needed. Do not take more frequently than every 4 hours.

Children aged 12 to 18 years: Swallow 2 tablets every 6 hours as needed. Do not take more frequently than every 6 hours.
  • Do not take more than 8 tablets in 24 hours.
  • Do not take more than the recommended dose.
  • Do not give to children under 12 years.
  • Do not take for more than 3 days. If you need to use this medicine for more than 3 days, you must speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Active Ingredients: codeine phosphate hemihydrate 12.8mg and paracetamol 500mg.
  • Other Ingredients: starch pregelatinised, povidone, potassium sorbate (E202), maize starch, talc, magnesium stearate, stearic acid, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, lactose monohydrate, hypromellose, macrogol, quinoline yellow (E104), erythrosine (E127) and titanium dioxide (E171).
  • This medicine contains 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.
  • Panadol Ultra Tablets should not be taken by children below the age of 12 years.
Do not take Panadol Ultra Tablets:
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to paracetamol, codeine, other opioid painkillers or to any of the other ingredients.
  • If you are taking other medicines containing paracetamol or codeine.
  • If you are breastfeeding.
Ask your doctor before you take Panadol Ultra Tablets:
  • If you have liver or kidney disease, including alcoholic liver disease.
  • If you have bowel problems including blockage of your bowel.
  • If you have had an operation to remove your gall bladder.
  • If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars.
  • If you are pregnant.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking these tablets if you are taking any prescribed medicines, particularly:
  • Metoclopramide or domperidone (for nausea or vomiting).
  • Colestyramine (to lower blood cholesterol).
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs prescribed for depression) or medicines that make you drowsy.
  • Blood thinning drugs (anticoagulants e.g. warfarin). If you take an anticoagulant and you need to take a pain reliever on a daily basis, talk to your doctor because of the risk of bleeding. But you can still take occasional doses of Panadol Ultra Tablets at the same time as anticoagulants.
