Solpadeine Max Tablets are over-the-counter painkillers used for managing acute moderate pain in the UK. Their combination of paracetamol and codeine offers strong pain relief for various conditions, including migraines and headaches. Solapdeine Max is suitable when ibuprofen or paracetamol alone has not provided effective pain relief for acute moderate pain. 

What is Solpadeine used for?

Solpadeine Max Tablets are used for the short-term relief of moderate pain that can’t be relieved by paracetamol, ibuprofen, or aspirin. They help to effectively manage acute moderate pain caused by conditions such as: 

  • Headaches
  • Dental pain
  • Period pain
  • Backache
  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatic pain 
  • Sciatica. 

How do Solpadeine Max Tablets work?

The active ingredients in Solpadeine Max Tablets are paracetamol and codeine, both painkillers used to treat acute moderate pain. Paracetamol reduces the production of certain chemicals in the brain that cause pain and fever. Whereas codeine mimics the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals, working together to relieve pain effectively.

Solpadeine Max Dosage

The recommended dose for adults taking Solpadeine Max Tablets for headaches, migraines or other moderate pain relief is 1 or 2 tablets every 4-6 hours as needed; however, you shouldn’t take any more than 8 tablets within 24 hours. 

It’s important not to take Solpdeine Max for more than 3 consecutive days unless advised by a pharmacist or GP, as codeine can cause addiction if misused. 

Who can take Solpadeine Max Tablets?

Solpadeine Max is suitable for people over 12 years of age who need short-term pain relief. However, they are not suitable if you:

  • Are allergic to paracetamol, codeine, or other ingredients listed in the medication.
  • Are already taking other medicines containing paracetamol or codeine.
  • Are breastfeeding
  • Metabolise codeine into morphine quickly 

Additionally, if you suffer from liver or kidney disease, bowel problems, gall bladder removal, or sugar intolerance, speak to a pharmacist or doctor before taking Solpadeine Max. If you’re still unsure whether this medication is suitable for you, read the patient information leaflet or visit Solpadeine’s FAQs page.

How do I use Solpadeine Max Tablets?

Solpadeine Max Tablets should be swallowed whole with water. If the pain returns, you can take another dose every 4-6 hours, but not more frequently than once every 4 hours. You should not take more than 8 tablets within a 24-hour period. Solpadeine Max Tablets should not be taken for more than 3 days consecutively.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
