What is Solpadol?

About Solpadol

Solpadol combines an opioid pain reliever with a non-prescription pain reliever. The analgesic combination in Solpadol provides pain relief better than the relief provided by either medication alone.

Solpadol includes two active ingredients, paracetamol and codeine, which effectively relieve severe pain. Codeine is an opioid, which means it comes from the opium poppy plant.

Solpadol provides short-term relief of moderate pain not relieved by non-prescription painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.

What are the active ingredients?

  • 500 mg Paracetamol
  • 30 mg Codeine Phosphate


What is Solpadol used for?

Solpadol is renowned for its painkilling abilities, so it is primarily used to help reduce pain. For example, you may have pain from arthritis, sciatica, joint issues, toothache, as a result of recent surgery, nerve damage or sporting injuries.

How Does Solpadol Work?

The codeine in Solpadol interacts with the central nervous system (CNS), changing the way the brain perceives pain. Codeine mimics the action of pain-reducing chemicals, known as endorphins, naturally occurring in the brain and spinal cord.

The human body converts codeine into morphine, another type of narcotic from the opium poppy plant. The morphine molecules latch onto opioid receptors in the CNS, which causes receptors to send pain-reducing messages to the brain.

Paracetamol works in the CNS to inhibit production of prostaglandins, which are naturally occurring chemicals that produce pain and inflammation at the site of injury or disease.

The analgesic effects of Solpadol typically begin 30 to 45 minutes after consumption.


How Do I Take Solpadol?

Solpadol is for adults, who should take one or two tablets every four to six hours with a glass of water, or as prescribed. Consumers should not take more than two tablets at a time, take more often than every four hours, or take more than eight tablets in 24 hours.

Consumers should not take Solpadol for more than three days, as the risk of physical dependence increases with prolonged use.

Paediatric population

Do not use in children, as the conversion from codeine to morphine is unpredictable in a child’s body.


What are the Uses, Dosage, Side Effects & Warnings?


Solpadol treats severe pain. Prescribers will calculate the correct dosage for each patient, depending on the severity of pain, source of pain, and the patient’s personal health history. Solpadol is not appropriate for all patients, so prescribers will not prescribe Solpadol and offer alternative treatment options in some cases.


Two tablets every four hours as needed, with a maximum dose of eight tablets in a 24-hour period.

Missed doses / Overdoses

Since consumers use Solpadol as needed, missed doses are not an issue.

If a consumer takes more Solpadol than they should, they must consult with a physician immediately even if they feel well. High paracetamol levels can cause delayed but serious liver damage. The risk of paracetamol overdose is greater in people with alcoholic liver disease.

Side effects

As with all medications, Solpadol may cause unwanted adverse reactions for some consumers. Some adverse effects may be serious. Consumers of Solpadol should seek immediate medical attention if they experience any of the following:

  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as swelling of the lips, face or neck, difficulty breathing, skin rash or hives
  • Severe back or abdominal pain in your back or abdomen

Solpadol may cause side effects that are not serious but warrant the attention of a physician if the adverse effects worsen or persist for longer than a few days:

  • Constipation
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, anorexia, incontinence, diarrhea
  • Skin rash, itching
  • Sweating, facial flushing
  • Low body temperature
  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred or double vision, or other changes in vision
  • Pin-point pupils
  • Malaise, tiredness
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Dizziness, vertigo, light-headedness
  • Slow or rapid heartbeat, palpitations
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Low blood pressure, feeling faint upon standing from a seated or lying position
  • Confusion, anxiety, mood changes such as including depression, sadness, euphoria
  • Convulsions, hallucinations, nightmares, depression
  • Stomach cramps, enlargement of the spleen
  • Uncontrolled muscle movement or muscle rigidity
  • Pain or difficulty in passing urine
  • Increased or decreased urinary frequency
  • Decreased libido or potency, or weak erection in males
  • Restlessness
  • High blood glucose levels
  • Swelling of the lymph nodes
  • Kidney damage
  • Blood disorders, such as reduced platelets that increase the risk of bleeding or bruising, reduced white blood cells that increase the risk of infection, and a severe decrease in blood cells to cause weakness, bruising and increased risk of infection

Warning: Solpadol and Pregnancy

Women who are pregnant should not take Solpadol unless instructed to do so by a physician. Women who are breastfeeding should not take Solpadol, as codeine passes into breast milk.

How to Store Solpadol?

Keep Solpadol and all medications out of the sight and reach of children. Store medicines only in locations do not exceed 25 degrees Celsius. Store Solpadol in its original package. Do not use Solpadol after the expiry date printed on the package.
