Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

"Co-Dydramol" is a combination of Paracetamol 500mg with 7.5 mg of dihydrocodeine. Both of drugs can be used for pain control in patients having Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency.

So you can use it safely.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Regards and wish you good health.
