Adcodol: Adcodol reportedly contains paracetamol, codeine and caffeine. I would be concerned about being unable to sleep without taking a narcotic. This is a pain medication, not an insomnia medication. I would encourage you to consult with your doctor and to find other ways to deal with sleep issues.
