Prescription Required: This product is a Pharmacist Only Medicine and now we require a prescription before we can send it to you. 



Panadeine EXTRA is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It is also used to control fever.


The label on your pack of Panadeine EXTRA will tell you how to take your medicine and how often. If you are unsure about the directions ask your doctor or pharmacist.

The usual dose of Panadeine EXTRA is:
Adults: 2 caplets. This dosage may be repeated in 4-6 hours if necessary.
You should not take more than 8 caplets in a 24 hour period. Swallow caplets whole with a little water or other liquid. The directions given to you by your pharmacist or doctor may be different from the information in this leaflet. If you are unsure what dose to take ask your pharmacist or doctor

If Panadeine EXTRA is not adequately controlling your pain, do not increase the dose. Please see your doctor.


Each Panadeine EXTRA tablet contains:
Paracetamol 500 mg
Codeine Phosphate 15 mg

Paracetamol and codeine work together to stop the pain messages from getting through to the brain. Paracetamol also acts in the brain to reduce fever. Your doctor or pharmacist may have given you this medicine for another use.

Things to be careful of

Panadeine EXTRA may cause dizziness or drowsiness in some people, especially after the first dose. If affected do not drive a car, operate machinery or do anything else that could be dangerous if you are dizzy or drowsy. Children should not ride bikes if affected and should be supervised to avoid potential harm.
Do not drink alcohol. Drinking alcohol increases the likelihood of becoming drowsy.

Panadeine EXTRA may be habit forming if taken in high doses for extended periods of time. Please ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned about this.

About 8% of people are poor metabolisers of codeine and Panadeine EXTRA may not work as well if you are one of those people.


Panadeine EXTRA is not recommended for children under 12 years.

Do not use Panadeine EXTRA if you are breastfeeding. Panadeine EXTRA may be used during pregnancy. However, ask your pharmacist or doctor about the risks and benefits of taking Panadeine EXTRA while you are pregnant.
