is a uniquely effective combination, consisting of 4 ingredients: paracetamol, propyphenazone, caffeine and codeine, ideally balanced to achieve analgesic synergy.
Codeine is an opiate agonist from the group of phenantren derivatives with mild analgesic effect, (used for treatment of mild to moderate pain) and it is often used in combination with other drugs for the purpose of ensuring additive analgesic effect. As a mild opiate analgesic it is frequently administered along with non-opiate analgesics for treatment of moderate to severe pain.
The recommended daily doses are 15-60 mg every 4-6 hours, which means that the maximum daily dose of 360 mg is 36 times higher than the dose contained in one Caffetin® tablet.
One Caffetin® tablet contains only 10 mg codeine phosphate.
