Solpadeine Plus uses a triple action formula – paracetamol, codeine and caffeine – to help deliver fast and effective pain relief. In particular, Solpadeine Plus Soluble gets to work two times faster than ordinary paracetamol.
Solpadeine Plus Capsules can be used in patients over 12 years of age for the short-term relief of moderate pain that is not relieved by other painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen alone.
They can be used for migraine, headache, dental pain, period pain, strains & sprains, backache, rheumatic pain and sciatica. The capsules contain three active ingredients; paracetamol, codeine and caffeine. Codeine and paracetamol are both painkillers. Codeine belongs to a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which act to relieve pain. It can be used on its own or in combination with other painkillers. Caffeine acts to further help the effectiveness of paracetamol.
This medicine contains codeine which can cause addiction if you take it continuously for more than 3 days. This can give you withdrawal symptoms from the medicine when you stop taking it.
If you take a painkiller for headaches for more than 3 days it can make them worse.
You should only take this product for a maximum of 3 days at a time. If you need to take it for longer than 3 days you should see your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
