It is not fully understood how paracetamol produces these effects. Codeine belongs to group of medicines called opioids. Opioids mimic the effects of naturally occurring pain reducing chemicals (endorphins) that are found in the brain and spinal cord. They act on the opioid receptors in the brain and block the transmission of pain signals. Therefore, even though the cause of the pain may remain, less pain is actually felt.

Caffeine is a weak stimulant. It is thought that the addition of caffeine may enhance the analgesic effects of paracetamol and codeine.

Doxylamine is a sedating anti-histamine. It acts by blocking the action of histamine which is a chemical released when an allergic response occurs.

Histamine is the chemical in the body that causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction. These can include inflammation of the skin, airways or tissues, rashes, itching of the skin, eyes or nose, nasal congestion and narrowing of the airways. By blocking the actions of histamine, doxylamine prevents and relieves the typical symptoms of an allergic reaction. Sedation is a common effect of doxylamine. As a result it is commonly used in pain relief preparations to encourage sleep. This medicine is used for the treatment of mild to moderate pain and to reduce a high temperature.

    RETURNS POLICY

    Irrespective of the delivery method you choose, we always take responsibility up to the point of delivery, i.e. if your parcel goes missing or the contents are damaged, we will replace the affected items at no cost to you.

    All our medicines are shipped from Johannesburg, South Africa. We deliver Worldwide via DHL, EMS, Global Express and the Post Office (Registered Airmail). Post Office delivery option is not suitable for Australia, Newzealand, USA and Canada because the Post Office sometimes takes a very long time to deliver in those countries. Global Express and EMS deliveries are guaranteed ! DHL is our preferred shipping method.

    Please Note: We are no longer able to post liquid products such as Syrups outside of South Africa. 

    DHL

    This is the fastest delivery method and can take as little as 3 days. Use it if you want your item to arrive within a few days.

    • Your parcel tracking reference number (Waybill number) will be emailed to you as soon as the parcel is accepted by DHL.
    • Order placed late Friday afternoon and during the weekend are usually processed on Monday/Tuesday.
    • Occasionally customers have reported that DHL in their country has asked them to pay additional delivery charges, claiming that OTCMedXpress was undercharged. Please note that OTCMedXpress has no control over this additional fee. Neither do we have control over any Customs Duty that may be imposed on the parcel.

    Global Express

    Global Express is an International Courier service available to most international destinations. The service is offered by "The Courier Guy", a South African private courier company with a global reach. This delivery option takes only 7-14 days to any destination in the World.

    EMS

     This is the fastest shipping option for USA and Canada where we can not use DHL. EMS may also be available in other countries outside the USA and Canada. The parcel will take an average of 12 days to arrive. In some countries, final delivery will be done by the local Post Office. Using your tracking number, you can track your parcel at: https://wheremy.com/ems-post-tracking/

    Please note: FREE Shipping promotion is occasionally offered by the Post Office. Although our system allows it, DO NOT CHOOSE EMS at checkout. If you do, the order will come through but your parcel will be posted via Post Office. If you are in the USA, your parcel might take up to 6 months to arrive via USPS.

    Post Office Airmail

    This option is for postage via the South African Post Office. Parcel posted via the Post Office will normally take between 2-4 weeks to arrive. Parcels may take much longer to arrive due to the effects of the festive season, public holidays or industrial strike action. Use this delivery option if you are not in a terrible hurry to receive your order because lengthy delivery delays are not uncommon, sometimes for no apparent reason. Having said that, the SA Post Office has 99% delivery success rate. Please bear this in mind when selecting a delivery option for your order.

    Tracking Parcels sent via the Post Office

     OTCMedXpress always provides tracking information for Post Office parcels. However, please note that actual tracking is provided not by the Post Office itself but by third parties. This in itself makes the process of tracking Post Office parcels a bit complicated, besides the fact that actual tracking is only available within South Africa.

    Once your parcel has been handed over to the Post Office, OTCMedXpress has no way of trying to expedite its movement through the postal system.

    Please be guided accordingly !

    Postage and Handling Charges

     The correct delivery fee will be calculated at checkout. This cost will be based on a combination of factors such as number of items in the shopping cart (quantity), weight delivery option selected and delivery destination.

    Additional Charges by Customs Office

     Please note that we have no control over additional fees that Customs Officials in your country may impose. It may be a good idea to contact your local Customs Office to inquire about the legality of importing the desired product into your country before you place an order on this website. Therefore, please note that OTCMedXpress prices, shipping and handling charges do not include any custom duties or taxes that may be incurred or charged on international orders. These charges are beyond the control of OTCMedXpress and need to be paid by the customer. Read more ...
