If you are experiencing severe pain that traditional painkillers aren't effecting, you could get short-term relief with Solpadol.
For severe pain that painkillers aren't touching, Solpadol can be an effective short-term pain reliever.
Solpadol is a painkiller which contains traditional paracetamol and codeine.
While the mechanism behind paracetamol is not well understood, it is believed that it inhibits the production of the prostoglandins which relay pain signals through the nervous system.
Codeine is an opioid derived from poppy plants. When metabolised by the liver, it is converted into morphine which blocks pain signals from being sent to and from the brain.
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.
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.
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.
Solpadol is not suitable for children.
Solpadol provides short term relief from severe pain in adults. Prescribers will issue the correct dosage for each patient, depending on the severity and source of their pain as well as their medical history. Solpadol is not appropriate for everyone.
Take 2 tablets every 4 hours as needed. Do not exceed 8 tablets in 24 hours.
Since consumers take 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.
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:
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:
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is strongly advised against using Solpadol unless under the direction of a physician.
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.
To reduce the risk of drug interactions, consumers should notify prescribers of their current medications and medical conditions.
Solpadol contains the active ingredients, paracetamol 500mg and codeine phosphate hemihydrate 30mg. Solpadol may include stabilizers and other ingredients. Do not use Solpadol if you are allergic or intolerant to any of these ingredients.
