I would have thought not as both contain paracetamol (I think).

Codeine in both Yorkie. It can make you sick/constipated and is an opiate. I'd check it.

What's the co-codamol strength? Is it 8mg codeine/500 paracetamol or 30mg codeine/500 paracetamol. If the former, then you should be fine with dihydrocodeine too, if the stronger ones, I would check with pharmacist - nhs direct have pharmacist advice

It is ok not exactly standard but if you can't take anti inflammatories may be indicated - beware all the codeine may make you constipated/nauseaus...
