Yes, headache is a possible side effect of co-codamol and should be reported to your doctor. Also, taking a pain killer too often or for too long can make the headache worse. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible. There are several conditions, whose symptoms are a headache, that can result from using co-codamol. Only your doctor can evaluate these possibilities.
Best of luck to you,
You can develop a "rebound" headache from the overuse of analgesics.
You should talk to your doctor about other headache treatments eg.Triptans You may be best to take a preventative medication if your headaches are very frequent.
i have recently been taking co-codamol for severe throat pain and infection. the co-codamol does help minimise the pain but not entirely.
however, i am eating tonnes at the moment - i don't know what's wrong with me. yet when i weigh myself on the scales, i am LOSING weight, about a lb every 2 days.
does the codeine in the co-codamol contribute to this?
