What is Solpadol and what does it do?

Solpadol is a medicine containing the two active ingredients codeine and paracetamol. It is used to relieve severe pain in adults. These caplets contain 30mg of codeine, and 500mg of paracetamol.

Solpadol relieves pain through two active ingredients. Paracetamol relieves pain and provides an antipyretic effect, meaning that it helps to lower raised temperatures and fever. Codeine relieves pain by binding to opioid receptors in the brain. This affects how the brain interprets pain and reduces the overall feeling of pain.

When is Solpadol prescribed?

Solpadol is primarily prescribed when over the counter painkillers have provided little or no relief. It may be prescribed to relieve pain and fever caused by headaches, migraine, back pain, period pain or other pain as advised by your GP or doctor.

Please note, prolonged use of Solpadol caplets may lead to tolerance and dependence. It is important that you consult your own doctor before stopping your treatment or before adjusting the dose.

Are Solpadol Caplets suitable for my condition?

The suitability of Solpadol is determined by our doctor as some conditions and medicines may affect how Solpadol works. Solpadol is likely to be suitable if you have been prescribed Solpadol previously, and as long as any of the below does not apply to you:

  • If you are allergic or sensitive to paracetamol, codeine or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.
  • If you are breast feeding.
  • If you suffer from severe kidney or liver disease.
  • If you know or has been told that you rapidly metabolise codeine into morphine.
  • If you suffer from breathing problems, such as asthma.
  • If you drink a lot of alcohol or drink alcohol every day.
  • If you have diarrhoea.
  • If you have recently had a gallbladder operation.

It is important that you inform our doctors of any other medication you may take, including non-prescription medicine, when you request your prescription. Please include this information when you fill in the medical questionnaire.

If you are unsure whether Solpadol caplets are suitable for you, always consult your doctor before use.
