Is daily long-term use of co-codamol safe if you take it within the recommended limits? Thank you.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What dosage are you taking ?


Customer: replied 5 months ago.
6 tablets per day.

Thanks for the information

Although the risk of any serious side effects are low in recommended dosage limits but it is still not absolutely safe

A patient can have various side effect even on this low dose as well

So the aim should be to take the lowest possible dose and also if possible replace it with the other alternatives like NSAIDs or acetaminophen

Please do let me know if you have any other questions
