Solpadeine Max provide relief of rheumatic pain, headache, migraine, neuralgia, toothache, sore throat, period pain, feverishness and the symptoms of colds and influenza. 

Solpadeine Max (paracetamol, codeine) is a compound analgesic used to alleviate moderate pain over the short term. It is among the most powerful painkillers available without a prescription, though it does require pharmacist approval.

The medication contains two active ingredients, each of which is more potent when combined than either would be on its own:

  • 500 mg paracetamol - a widely used painkiller for over 100 years, paracetamol desensitizes nerve endings and reduces fever.
  • 12.8 mg codeine - a member of the opioid family, codeine disrupts pain signals to the brain, significantly reducing the sensation of pain.

This product comes in tablets which are taken as-needed for up to three days. Unlike its sister product Solpadeine Max Soluble, Solpadeine Max tablets do not contain caffeine. Though the soluble version of this product generally starts working faster, Solpadeine Max tends to remain effective for longer.

Solpadeine Max for Maximum Pain Relief

Pain relief is a serious subject, and many patients with routinely occurring pain---such as from migraines or a back injury---spend years looking for a solution that is effective, affordable and accessible. Solpadeine Max is exactly that solution for many pain-sufferers. It is commonly used to alleviate pain from:

  • Migraines
  • Other headaches (except cluster headaches)
  • Backache
  • Arthritis
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Toothache
  • Strains & sprains
  • Aches & pains
  • Neuralgia
  • Sciatica
  • Other mild to moderate pain

Not only is Solpadeine Max effective, it is fast-acting and easy to take: Patients over 12 years of age should take 1 or 2 tablets as-needed every 4 to 6 hours. Relief typically starts within 15 to 30 minutes, peaking within 60 minutes. Peak effects last for another 4 to 6 hours before gradually tapering down, at which time the next dose can be taken if pain begins to return.

A full glass of fluid with each dose with help with rapid absorption. Food is optional, but if nausea, vomiting or stomach cramps occur taking tablets with food may ease these symptoms.

Use of Solpadeine Max should generally not exceed 3 days in a row. While a doctor may occasionally advise longer use, taking the medication long term increases risk of serious side effects from both active ingredients. Additionally, most people begin develop tolerance to codeine if used for more than a few days in a row, which will render the medication less effective against pain.

Adverse Effects

Patients with preexisting medical conditions should check with a doctor before taking Solpadeine Max, as the medication may cause complications. Of particular concern are patients who have:

  • History of allergic reaction to NSAIDs or other painkillers
  • Any condition which impairs breathing or decreases lung function
  • History of liver, kidney or heart disease
  • Any intestinal problems, particularly bowel blockages
  • History of gallbladder problems or have had the gallbladder removed

Side effects are typically mild, if experienced at all, provided Solpadeine Max is used as directed. Possible side effects include:

  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Sweating
  • Itching
  • Increased urination
  • Difficulty urinating

Like any product containing codeine, Solpadeine Max can cause serious---even fatal---complications in children under 12 years of age. Likewise it can cause serious harm to unborn or nursing babies.

Solpadeine Max is known to interact with certain other medications. The leaflet included with the product contains a comprehensive list of known interactions; a doctor or pharmacist can also be consulted.

Be sure to check ingredients of other over-the-counter drugs or supplements, as they may contain paracetamol. Too much paracetamol can cause liver damage.

Note that taking this medication at doses high enough to produce euphoric effects from codeine will considerably exceed safe levels of paracetamol.
