Dihydrocodeine 30mg is an opiate painkiller used to treat moderate to severe pain. It may be prescribed for a serious injury or after an operation. It is also used to treat chronic and long-standing pain where weaker over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin have not worked. Dihydrocodeine is usually the preferred treatment for post-operative pain due to its lack of respiratory effects when taken in controlled doses. This reduces the risk of chest complications.
Dihydrocodeine 30mg may be used to treat:
- Serious injuries
- Post-operative pain
- Pain where other pain relief medications have failed
- Suppress coughing in severe cases
- Addiction treatment for those suffering from drug withdrawal
Dihydrocodeine 30mg works by binding to receptors in the brain, central nervous system and digestive system. This stops pain signals travelling along nerves to the brain. It takes between 1.5 to 2 hours for the medicine to work fully.
Opioid medicines can cause addiction if taken incorrectly. An individual may suffer from withdrawal symptoms if they stop taking dihydrocodeine 30mg suddenly. Please speak to a doctor if you wish to stop taking this pain killer.
This drug is suitable for adults and children over the age of four. Do not take this medicine if you are allergic to dihydrocodeine or any of the other listed ingredients. Please speak to a doctor before taking this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
