Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

Co-codamol 30/500 is a combination medication which contains codeine (30mg) and paracetamol (500mg). I presume that your question is about how long the codeine in the cocodamol is detectable in urine. The exact amount of time that codeine is detectable in urine depends on the amount of codeine a person is taking, what formulation of the drug they’re using, and how long they’ve used it. Typically, codeine can be detected in urine for 2 - 4 days. It can be detectable for slightly longer when someone’s last dose was a very large amount, or if someone has chronically abused codeine.

The other thing to note here is that codeine is metabolized in the body to morphine, which in turn can be detectable in the urine. This is why it is important to avoid any codeine-containing medication for at least a week if you're taking a scheduled urine drug test. If you have a valid prescription for cocodamol, then you should let your company or drug testing firm know this by bringing the prescription along with you when you take the test.

Wish you all the best.

Hi again and thanks for writing in.

If you have been totally off cocodamol for 6 weeks, you can be assured that a urine test is definitely not going to detect it.

Wish you all the best.
