Hello
This tablet contains codeine 30mg and paracetamol 500mg.Yes the tab should be taken at least 4 hour interval.You have taken the second dose after 2 hours instead 4 hours, this will not harm you in any other than some extra somnolence (due to codeine).You should take the next dose in scheduled time like 6 hour after the second dose.
Thank you
