Customer Question

I usually take 30/500g of cocodamol a day prescribed by my GP for chronic back pain. I took an extra one today by mistake so 2 in the morning, 2 at noon and 3 in the afternoon, now I'm being sick and feel unwell, although I felt unwell last night too. I am usually fine on a dose of 8 a day and have only taken 7 so far. Will I be OK?

Hi. There really shouldn't be anything to worry about with that one extra dose. The unwell feeling now may be from the extra dose but other than that it should pass soon. Let me know if you need more information please
