Buy Paramol Tablets Online For Pain Relief

Paramol tablets are painkillers primarily used for short-term treatment of acute moderate pain that other medications like ibuprofen or aspirin can’t relieve. Conditions it treats include headaches, migraines, period pain, toothache, backache and muscular and joint aches.

As you don’t need a prescription in the UK for paracetamol, you can buy Paramol tablets online from our online pain relief clinic with free and next-day delivery options.

How Do Paramol Tablets Work?

Paramol Tablets work by combining two pain-relieving ingredients. paracetamol, known for its ability to reduce pain and fever, works by blocking brain chemical signals telling us we have pain. Additionally, dihydrocodeine, a stronger painkiller, works in the nervous system to reduce pain sensations, making this combination effective for moderate pain.

The recommended dose for adults taking Paramol tablets for headaches is 1 or 2 tablets every 4-6 hours as required during or after meals; however, you shouldn’t take any more than 8 tablets within 24 hours.

Paramol Tablets FAQs

Paramol Tablets generally start to work within an hour of taking them; however, this depends on the individual. Paramol tablets should be taken following the recommended dose; if you’re still trying to figure out how to take Paramol Pablets, read the patient information leaflet or speak to one of our pharmacists.

In the UK, you don’t need a prescription to purchase Paramol Tablets; they can be bought over the counter or online. Paramol can be purchased from Click2Pharmacy’s online pain relief clinic, which offers fast and free delivery options.

Drinking alcohol whilst taking Paramol may heighten side effects such as feeling sleepy or dizzy. Additionally, It can also raise the chance of harming your liver and kidneys, so it’s advised to steer clear of alcohol during Paramol treatment.

Drowsiness can be a side effect of taking Paramol, and in the UK, It’s an offence to drive if medication impairs your driving ability. Therefore, you should avoid driving or using any tools or machinery if Paramol makes you sleepy or you’re unsure how it impacts you.

Paramol Tablets should not be taken if you are pregnant, trying to get pregnant or breastfeeding. However, at Click2Pharmacy, we offer free consultations with our licenced pharmacists, who can advise you on alternate medications. 

You should avoid using Paramol alongside other medications that have paracetamol, codeine or dihydrocodeine, as this could raise the chances of an overdose. Alternatively, Ibuprofen tablets can be taken alongside Paramol Tablets.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
