What is Solpadeine Headache Soluble 

Solpadeine Headache Soluble are dissolvable tablets that can help to relieve pain caused by headaches and migraines. The fast-acting formula helps to target pain faster than normal paracetamol alone. As well as headaches, this product is also suitable for treating:

  • Backache

  • Toothache

  • Rheumatic pain 

  • Dysmenorrhoea

  • Symptoms of cold and flu

The tablets are easy to administer as they are dissolved in water before being consumed, so they are perfect for those who have trouble swallowing tablets. If you’re looking for fast, easy and effective pain relief, Solpadeine may be the solution for you. 

What causes a headache?

Headaches are a common problem, which can be caused by a variety of factors but are not usually a cause for concern and can be easily treated. There are many reasons why you may be suffering from a headache, but the most common causes are:

  • Cold or flu

  • Stress

  • Excessive alcohol consumption 

  • Bad posture 

  • Eyesight issues 

  • Not eating regular meals or drinking enough fluid

  • Menstruation (periods) or menopause 

Headaches can last between half an hour to several hours, but there are steps you can take to ease your symptoms including:

  • Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water

  • Get plenty of rest if your headache is a result of a cold or the flu

  • Try to relax

  • Exercise if possible

  • Take painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Do not skip meals 

  • Try not to sleep any more than you normally would, as this can make your headache worse 

  • Do not strain your eyes for long periods of time 

How can Solpadeine Soluble help relieve a headache?

The two active ingredients in Solpadeine Soluble are paracetamol and caffeine. Paracetamol is a painkiller which is commonly used to treat aches, pains and to reduce fever. Caffeine helps to speed up the effects of paracetamol. When paracetamol is taken alone, it can take up to an hour for it to work, however Solpadeine combines this painkiller with caffeine so it gets to work twice as fast.
