Veganin Triple Action Tablets (30 Tablets)
What is Veganin triple action used for?
Veganin triple action tablets are used for mild to moderate pain, such as headache, migraine, toothache, muscular and rheumatic pain, backache (lumbago), nerve pain (neuralgia) and period pain. Veganin triple action tablets relieve aches, pains, sore throat and fever associated with colds and flu.
How does Veganin triple action work?
Veganin triple action tablets contain three active ingredients:
Paracetamol is a simple painkilling medicine used to relieve mild to moderate pain and fever. It is thought paracetamol reduces fever by affecting an area of the brain that regulates our body temperature (the hypothalamic heat-regulating center).
Veganin triple action tablets also contain codeine is a slightly stronger painkiller known as an opioid. Opioid painkillers work by mimicking the action of naturally occurring pain-reducing chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins are found in the brain and spinal cord and reduce pain by combining with opioid receptors.
Codeine mimicks the action of natural endorphins by combining with the opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord. This blocks the transmission of pain signals sent by the nerves to the brain. Therefore, even though the cause of the pain may remain, less pain is actually felt.
The final active ingredient in Veganin is caffeine, is a weak stimulant. It is thought that the addition of caffeine may enhance the painkilling effects of paracetamol.
How to take Veganin triple action tablets:
Adults and children of 12 years: swallow to tablets whole every 4 to 6 hours.
Do not take more than 8 tablets in 24 hours.
If you need to use this medicine for more than 3 days at a time please see your doctor or pharmacist.
Taking codeine for a long period of time can lead to addiction.
Taking a painkiller for headaches too often can make them worse.
CONTAINS PARACETAMOL. Do not take with any other paracetamol containing products. Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of an overdose, even if you feel well.
Warnings when using Veganin triple action tablets:
Do not take this medicine with any other products that contain paracetamol (many over-the-counter painkillers and cold and flu remedies contain paracetamol)
It is important to check the ingredients of any medicines you buy without a prescription before taking them in combination with this medicine.
An overdose of paracetamol is dangerous and capable of causing serious damage to the liver and kidneys.
You should never exceed the dose stated in the information leaflet supplied with this medicine.
Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of an overdose with this medicine, even if you feel well, because of the risk of delayed, serious liver damage.
The hazards of paracetamol overdose are greater in persistant heavy drinkers and in people with alcoholic liver disease as alcohol increases the risk of liver damage and greatly reduces its ablilty to process toxins.
Use with caution in:
Decreased kidney function.
Decreased liver function.
Veganin triple action tablets should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have previously experienced such an allergy.If you feel you have experienced an allergic reaction, stop using this medicine and inform your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding:
Certain medicines should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, other medicines may be safely used in pregnancy or breastfeeding providing the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the unborn baby.
Always inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, before using any medicine.
Paracetamol is not known to be harmful when used during pregnancy. However, the safety of codeine has not been established. If codeine is used in the third trimester it may cause withdrawal symptoms in the baby after birth. As a result, this medicine should be used with caution during pregnancy, and only if the expected benefit to the mother outweighs any potential risk to the infant. Seek medical advice from your doctor before using this medicine if you are pregnant.
Paracetamol and codeine may pass into breast milk in amounts that are probably too small to be harmful in most people. However, on very rare occasions, codeine taken by a nursing mother may cause side effects in the breast-fed baby. These side effects may include drowsiness or sedation, difficulty breastfeeding, vomiting, breathing difficulties and floppiness in the nursing baby.
The baby may be more likely to experience side effects if the mother experiences side effects such as drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite or breathing difficulties after taking codeine. You should seek medical advice from your doctor before taking this medicine if you are breastfeeding.You should stop taking this medicine and consult your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical care if your baby shows any of the symptoms just mentioned.
Taking Veganin triple action tablets with other medication:
This medicine should be used with caution in people taking a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), for example the antidepressants phenelzine, tranylcypromine or isocarboxacid. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine if you have taken an MAOI in the last 14 days.
Cholestyramine reduces the absorption of paracetamol from the gut. It should not be taken within an hour of taking paracetamol or the effect of the paracetamol will be reduced.
Metoclopramide and domperidone may increase the absorption of paracetamol from the gut. However, codeine may oppose the effects of metoclopramide and domperidone on the gut.
Long-term or regular use of paracetamol may increase the anti-blood-clotting effect of warfarin and other anticoagulant medicines, leading to an increased risk of bleeding. This effect does not occur with occasional pain-killing doses. If you are taking an anticoagulant medicine and you are also taking co-codamol regularly, your blood clotting time (INR) should be regularly monitored.
In the unlikely event that this medicine makes you feel drowsy, this may be enhanced by other medicines that can cause drowsiness, such as the following:
antipsychotics, eg haloperidol
barbiturates, eg phenobarbital, amobarbital
benzodiazepines, eg diazepam, temazepam
other opioids, eg morphine, dihydrocodeine
sedating antihistamines, eg chlorphenamine, hydroxyzine
