Zapain is available in Tablets or Capsules

Zapain (codeine phosphate, paracetamol) is an opioid pain relief treatment used as-needed to manage mild to severe pain.

Codeine and paracetamol are found in quite a few products, in varying ratios and strengths. Zapain provides one of the stronger doses available, with 30 mg codeine and 500 mg paracetamol. Another advantage this product has over competing brands is the individual packaging of tablets in blister packs, which keeps the medication fresher, and therefore more effective, than when stored loose in bottles.

Taking Zapain for Pain Relief

Using this treatment to stop pain is very simple:

  • Patients over 18 years of age should take 1 or 2 tablets every 4 hours as needed for pain relief.
  • Patients between 12 to 18 years of age should take 1 or 2 tablets every 6 hours as needed.
  • This product should not be used in patients under 12 years of age unless prescribed by a physician.
  • Patients of any age should not exceed 8 tablets, or 240 mg of codeine, in one day.
  • Tablets should be taken with a full glass of fluid.
  • Taking tablets with food may help ease nausea.

Zapain is typically used short-term, for a few days or weeks, or intermittently, such as for periodic migraines. Long-term, frequent use of the product often leads to tolerance, making the medication less effective unless taken in higher and higher doses. Chronic use of high levels of this product can lead to dangerous side effects, including liver and kidney damage.

If tolerance does develop, switching to an alternate medication for a few weeks will restore Zapain's effectiveness.

Warnings Before Use

One of the ingredients in this product, paracetamol, can cause serious liver or kidney damage if taken in high quantities. Be aware that many over-the-counter products, particularly other painkillers and cold or flu medications, also contain paracetamol. Alcohol consumption during treatment will increase the risk of liver damage. If too much paracetamol is consumed, seek medical attention even if no symptoms are present.

Patients with any major medical conditions should seek the advice of a doctor before taking Zapain. Likewise, check with a doctor or pharmacist before mixing medications; this product is known to interact with other prescription and non-prescription drugs.

Patients with a breathing disorder such as asthma or COPD, or a current lung infection, should use with caution; codeine may suppress breathing, particularly in higher doses.

Pregnant or breast-feeding women should discuss alternative pain therapies with a doctor; it is unknown if this product will harm unborn or nursing babies.

Long-term use of codeine may be habit-forming. For this reason possession and use of the product may be restricted in some areas; clients are responsible for complying with local regulations. Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, restlessness, insomnia and anxiety. Tapering off treatment by slowly reducing the amount of medication taken will help ease withdrawal symptoms.

Side Effects

Some side effects with this medication are fairly common, but generally not cause for concern. Most patients experience only one or two side effects:

  • Headache
  • Stomach upset
  • Abdominal pain
  • Flushing
  • Sweating
  • Sleepiness
  • Dizziness
  • Disorientation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of libido
  • Mood changes
  • Low blood pressure

Because this product lowers blood pressure, individuals taking other drugs to lower blood pressure are at increased risk of dizziness, disorientation and fainting. Discuss risks with a doctor before use.

    Terrific product and great service!! Have ordered from them several times and will do so again. Appreciate that tracking is provided and both orders arrived in less than a week. I agree with those who say it seems more effective than what is sold in the local pharmacy--it is definitely fresher and packaged better and that may have a lot to do with it. I would also be interested in a lower dose of acetaminophen although if used as directed there as not much danger, unless you also do a lot of drinking. (Never a good idea to mix booze & paracetamol.) Kiwi has also been very responsive to all my questions. Great product and a class act pharmacy!
  • 2014-05-14 21:46:52 EST
    Quite perfect. This might not be a big deal to some, but the packaging is impressive. The box is very clearly labeled with all the drug information and the blister packs are easy to open with a finger nail. The drug itself is perfectly formulated. I just take it if I have a seizure in the middle of the night and am feeling achy in the morning. It's not extreme pain so I've only taken 1 or 2 pills at a time so I can't speak on how the medicine relieves higher pain levels than that. For those who ask why it has so much acetaminophen, it is a calculated business decision which I don't think is appropriate for me to get into on this site. I recommend researching the topic instead of asking kiwi to carry codine without the acetaminophen.
  • 2014-03-21 23:34:50 EST
    Zapain, in the blister packs (as sold here), is the strongest codeine preparation I've ever used. One pill you get a full 30 mg. worth - fresh as the moment it was made - as opposed to a half-degraded, crumbling bottled pill that's supposed to give you 30 mg. codeine. Fresher is better. I also like the 100-pill bulk. Going to my local doctor gets me 50 at a time (loose, in a poorly sealed bottle). So I buy it here, even though it costs me a little more.
  • 2014-03-04 09:12:32 EST
    Kiwi Drugs gets an A+ from me. Honesty and good service all the way. Zapain works well, wish it came with a lower dose of Acetomenophin though.
  • 2013-11-27 21:13:00 EST
    The comparable local product is Tylenol 3 (or, as most of us get, the generic APAP with codeine 300/30). Let me tell you that Zapain is markedly superior. I don't know why, because it's really just a slight bit more acetaminophen than the local analog. When I take Zapain both ingredients come across full strength. The difference is so huge (from American Tylenol 3) that I've ordered Zapain 3 times from KiwiDrug now. I commend the manufacturer, Bristol Laboratories, U.K., for high quality and KiwiDrug for selling it. I just wish that express shipping was an option.
  • 2013-11-21 17:37:43 EST
    I have always bought codeine sulfate because it contains no livrr damaging tylenol. Will you ever carry that? Its much better for chronic pain users. Please comment on this.
  • 2013-10-26 17:48:18 EST
    Speaking from experience Zapain is very high quality. I think the 500/30 formulation is perfect (American Tylenol 3's are 300/30). But more importantly Zapain tablets have a nice hard coating. Which means it doesn't dissolve in your hand or 'go bad' easily. It comes in blister packs, which further guarantees the 'freshness' & protection against ambient air moisture. Thus, when you're taking these (I need to take 2), you're getting the absolute maximum of the drugs' intention. It takes about an hour to work, probably because of the tablet's hard shell, but take effect it does! For me it works better than "Lortab" & Vicodin, even though the medicine in those is supposed to be stronger. I find that Zapain works far better. Oh, and KiwiDrug ships very fast. I commend them for being on the ball with that.

    My second order with Kiwi. Came less than a week from time of order - across the ocean. This company is customer savvy. What I like most is the guaranteed freshness of the medicine. It isn't getting-ready-to-stale pills disintegrating inside a bottle, like I get from local pharmacies.
  • 2013-09-25 06:09:45 EST
    A follow-up: Zapain took 40 minutes to begin effect on me but when it did it kicked in strong & suddenly, totally eliminating pain. A good formulation and a fresh product. It's easily won my confidence.
  • 2013-09-24 12:49:48 EST
    Haven't used the product yet but, wow, KiwiDrug sure makes good on it's promise of fast delivery. As though it came from just a couple states away. An excellent service for those of us that can benefit from hard-to-find medicines. Thank you.
  • 2013-09-09 06:52:38 EST
    A highly effective, good formulation of the product; fast-acting, with minimal stomach irritation. Kiwi ships promptly, and responds quickly and courteously to all e-mail inquiries: I am a satisfied customer, and confidently rely on Kiwi to meet my needs.
  • 2012-12-21 15:59:59 EST
    This product is what it purports to be ingredient wise, and really helps with my chronic headaches. I usually get it in about a week, I'm in North America. sometimes a little longer. No problems with lost shipments which sometimes happened with other products.
  • 2012-10-07 17:02:44 EST
    Yes, I love Kiwi. Dependable, reputable, and very good communication with customers. I will add my voice to the above, though, as well. I would be interested in a product with less acetaminophen and/or ibuprofen, which kills the stomach.
  • 2012-10-05 22:21:28 EST
    I have placed several orders with Kiwi and have had no problems that were not resolved. A few times the meds that came from a sister location in India took longer to deliver and few emails to track but the products were delivered. Kiwi has always responded to emails if orders took longer than usual to receive. All my orders have been received and were the correct order. I would highly recomend Kiwi.
  • 2012-09-27 22:11:42 EST
    After a rough start a couple of years ago I find Kiwi Drug to be probably the most dependable on-line pharmacy available. Medications are legit (they contain the acutal medications they profess to contain), they deliver rapidly and safely. And, to make it even better, they are very competitively priced. I consistently find their prices to be better than the Canadian pharmacies who seem to have grown too big and see they can make big profits. If you are like me and want to be sure you are taking the actual medication you thought you were buying, then you can't go wrong with Kiwi Drug. I highly recommend them!
  • 2012-09-27 20:48:24 EST
    Need codeine with no acetaminophen....messes with lover too much.
  • 2012-05-18 21:20:11 EST
    Kiwi Drug, you provide an excellent service, especially for person like myself with no medical insurance. My only concern is the amount of acetaminophen in each dose you are selling, it has been proven that taking large amounts of acetaminophen can cause liver damage. Is there any way to purchase the codeine without liver damaging acetaminophen?
  • 2012-05-06 22:48:26 EST
    I concur! This is a most effetive remedy and it arrived quicker than I expected. I'll look forward to using it again.
  • 2012-04-25 13:22:29 EST
    Great product. Shipped fast. Good price. Would order more if it were available.
