Solpadeine products are designed to be used for pain relief and aren’t designed to treat many common cold and flu symptoms, so we don’t recommend these products for those who have a cold or the flu.
However, most Solpadeine products contain paracetamol, which can help to reduce a fever or high temperature, which is a common symptom of a cold or the flu.
They can also ease pain caused by headaches, which can happen when you’re congested.
This means that if you take Solpadeine products for pain relief when you have a cold, you can still experience these benefits as well.
With that being said, if you have a cold or the flu and need a remedy that will work for you, ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend a suitable product that will relieve all of your symptoms effectively, rather than products that are designed for pain relief
