Syndol sold on ZimSeller is the original formulation of Syndol (with doxylamine) and is manufactured in South Africa. It contains four active ingredients, paracetamol, codeine phosphate, doxylamine succinate and caffeine.
Syndol is medication commonly used in the United Kingdom for the relief of pain and the reduction of fevers. Syndol contains paracetamol, codeine phosphate, doxylamine succinate, and caffeine.
Paracetamol is used in the treatment of mild to moderate pain. It is also useful for reducing fever.
It is not fully understood how paracetamol produces these effects. Codeine belongs to group of medicines called opioids. Opioids mimic the effects of naturally occurring pain reducing chemicals (endorphins) that are found in the brain and spinal cord. They act on the opioid receptors in the brain and block the transmission of pain signals. Therefore, even though the cause of the pain may remain, less pain is actually felt.
Caffeine is a weak stimulant. It is thought that the addition of caffeine may enhance the analgesic effects of paracetamol and codeine.
Doxylamine is a sedating anti-histamine. It acts by blocking the action of histamine which is a chemical released when an allergic response occurs.
Histamine is the chemical in the body that causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction. These can include inflammation of the skin, airways or tissues, rashes, itching of the skin, eyes or nose, nasal congestion and narrowing of the airways. By blocking the actions of histamine, doxylamine prevents and relieves the typical symptoms of an allergic reaction. Sedation is a common effect of doxylamine. As a result it is commonly used in pain relief preparations to encourage sleep. This medicine is used for the treatment of mild to moderate pain and to reduce a high temperature.
