Syndol is intended for short-term use only (up to 3 days). It’s blend of three active ingredients works well to relieve mild to moderate pain of acute conditions, such as:
- Neuralgia (nerve pain)
- Period pain
- Rheumatic aches and pains
- Syndol should only be used if your pain is not effectively managed by paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone.
Syndol contains three active ingredients; paracetamol, codeine and caffeine.
Paracetamol is a painkiller that works to relieve mild to moderate pain and fever. It is thought to reduce the production of prostaglandins in the brain and spinal cord. Prostaglandins is a pain-triggering chemical that acts to sensitise nerve endings at the site of trauma. By reducing their production, paracetamol can increase our tolerance to pain. So, even though the cause of the pain will remain, the painful sensation it produces will be reduced.
Codeine is an opioid painkiller and is slightly stronger than paracetamol. Opioids work by mimicking the action of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving chemical. Codeine, like endorphins, block the transmission of pain signals being sent from the nerves to the brain. This means that even though the cause of the pain is still there, less pain is actually felt.
Syndol also contains caffeine, which will act as a weak stimulant. This stimulant can enhance paracetamol’s pain-relieving effects. It can also act to counter the drowsiness that can be caused by codeine.
The dose of codeine contained in Syndol is unlikely to cause drowsiness, especially as this medicine also contains caffeine. However, if you find yourself affected in this manor, you should avoid driving, operating heavy machinery and drinking alcohol.
As of March 2015, new drug driver testing has come into force. This allows police to use a roadside test to check for prohibited substances in a driver’s saliva. One such prohibited substance is Morphine. Codeine is converted to Morphine in the liver. This means it may be a criminal offence to drive whilst taking Syndol Headache Relief Tablets. You should abstain from driving if you believe this medicine may affect your ability to do so safely.
People can vary in the way their bodies metabolise codeine. For some, this may lead to an increased chance of experiencing side effects.
These can include:
- Reduced levels of consciousness
- Slow, shallow breathing
- ‘Pin-point’ pupils
- Lack of appetite
- Nausea & vomiting
If you experience any of the above side effects, stop using Syndol tablets and seek medical advice straight away.
If you find that Syndol Headache Relief Tablets are not effectively managing your pain symptoms, consult with your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not take Syndol Headache Relief with any other product that contains paracetamol. An overdose is dangerous and could potentially cause serious damage to the liver and kidneys. Many over-the-counter pain relief treatments, as well as most cough/cold remedies, contain paracetamol. Always check the ingredients of any medicine you buy before taking them at the same time as Syndol. If you are unsure about any medicine or its ingredients, ask your pharmacist for advice.
Do not take Syndol for longer than 3 days without first consulting your doctor or pharmacist. Taking this medicine regularly can result in building a tolerance to it, which will make it less effective at relieving pain. Prolonged use can also lead to a codeine dependency. As a result, when you stop taking this medicine, it could cause substance withdrawal. This will lead to symptoms, such as irritability and restlessness. If painkillers are used too frequently for headaches, it can often make them worse
