Co-codamol 30/500

White capsule with no ID imprinted ## small white pill with a yellow L on it ## I have pulled the sciatic nerve in my back and am not sleeping due to back and leg pain. I need a relaxant. What can I take? I'm taking co-codamol 30/500 but it's not doing a lot. I'm so tired. ## Co-Codamol contains Acetaminophen, and Codeine, it is a narcotic pain reliever. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, drowsiness, and constipation. Niki, are there any other markings on the tablet in question? Chris, what has your doctor advised you to take?

What is a round white pill marked with u36

I went to my pharmacy and instead of tylenol 3 they gave me a pill with u36 on it. Is this the same as tylenol 3? ## Hi manuel, A white round pill marked with U36 reportedly contains Acetaminophen (300mg) + Codeine phosphate (30mg); a generic version of Tylenol #3. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Aurolife Pharma and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 13107-0059. I hope this helps!

Tylenol 3 does not help my back pain

I have COPD and my doctor gave me Tylenol 3 and they don't work. I've been on them for 5 months and they don't work. ## Codeine is actually a very mild opiate, so it doesn't help everyone that takes it. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Have you informed your doctor of the problem? You may need to try something stronger.
