Painkillers for Dummies

I usually only take a couple of paracetamol twice a year before a clean at the dentist, but I'm currently dealing with severe abdominal pain.
A&E have given me 30mg codeine to start and said I could raise it to 60mg when I'd got used to it. I haven't got used to it yet - very wobbly indeed. The trouble is 30mg on its own doesn't work for longer than about an hour.
I have been struggling with this since last Sunday and would really like to be pain free for longer than an hour. Can I take paracetamol as well, or is there something else I can do to make the codeine more effective?
