What is Dihydrocodeine?

Dihydrocodeine 30mg is a form of pain relief for moderate to severe pain. It may be prescribed when milder painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol prove to be ineffective.

Dihydrocodeine can be used to treat pain caused by disorders such as sciatica (nerve pain in the back or legs), joint and bone pain (such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis), nerve pain, pain caused by blood vessel illness, cancer, or after surgery.

The active ingredient is Dihydrocodein Tartrate, and each pill contains 30mg. Dihydrocodeine and paracetamol are found in medicines marketed as Remedeine, Paramol, and Co-dydramol.


How does Dihydrocodeine work? 

Dihydrocodeine is classified as an opioid analgesic, with codeine phosphate and co-codamol, often known as Solpadol.

Opioids operate by replicating the body’s natural pain-relieving molecules known as endorphins, which are produced in the brain and spinal cord and help us experience less pain.

Dihydrocodeine acts on the same opioid receptors to prevent pain signals from being delivered to the brain via the neurological system, so while the underlying cause of the pain is not treated, the user experiences less pain.

Dihydrocodeine is related to and has a similar chemical structure to codeine; in fact, it may be used as a substitute for codeine or the aforementioned circumstances. However, dihydrocodeine is twice as potent.

How to use Dihydrocodeine | dihydrocodeine 30mg

Dihydrocodeine should be taken with water, with or without food, as instructed by your GP. Adults should take one tablet every four to six hours (maximum dose in a 24-hour period is six tablets).

The dose should be reduced for elderly patients and anyone who suffers from liver or kidney problems. Children under 12 years are not advised to use this medication. Your doctor will prescribe the correct dose for you.

If you miss a dose, take a tablet as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, don’t take the missed dose and never double the dose to make up for your missed tablet. Do not stop taking dihydrocodeine without speaking to your GP first.
