Iv set the cookies, but it takes a cache refresh (manual F5) of the browser in order for it to take affect and show the result on the same page.

Anything else I should be doing?

Try adding theses headers to your pages where cookie data is used:

<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache">
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Sat, 01 Dec 2001 00:00:00 GMT">

what you will need to do is set the cookie array like below

$value="Cookie text";
$_COOKIE['cookie'] = $value;

set the cookie as normal using setcookie also and therefor it will work on the first page as u set $_COOKIE['cookie'] variable and also after as it will have been refreshed and cookie will be set now.

This is not a problem with PHP it is a limitation of cookies.
