Solpadeine Max Soluble Tablets are painkillers which can be used for moderate aches and pains. These tablets dissolve in water, making them perfect for those who need effective pain relief, but struggle to swallow tablets or capsules. If you’re looking for a way to ease your pain and find that other painkillers haven’t worked, Solpadeine Max could be the solution you need.
Solpadeine Max Soluble tablets contain two different painkillers which work together to ease moderate pain, paracetamol and codeine. Paracetamol is a popular everyday painkiller which many people rely on for relief from minor aches and pains. Codeine is part of a group of medicines known as opioid analgesics, which makes it a different type of painkiller to paracetamol. This is why the two can be used together to ease aches and pains which can’t be managed by paracetamol on its own. Finally, Solpadeine Max contains caffeine, which helps to make paracetamol more effective, so you can feel the benefits of this medication as soon as possible.
Solpadeine Max can help to ease lots of moderate pains which can’t be controlled with regular painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen alone. Some of the most popular reasons why people use this product include:
You should not take Solpadeine Max soluble tablets if you’re breastfeeding, as codeine and the morphine it metabolises into can both pass into your breastmilk. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product, to be sure that this is safe for both you and your baby. They may recommend a different painkiller which will be safe for you to take at this time.
When you’ve taken Solpadeine Max you may feel drowsy, sleepy, or dizzy. You should not attempt to drive or use tools or machinery unless you know how this medicine affects you and are absolutely sure that this doesn’t affect your ability to drive.
You should try to avoid drinking alcohol while taking Solpadeine Max, as alcohol can make you feel drowsy. This means that drinking alcohol can increase your chances of feeling drowsy or sleepy when you take this product, and can make these side effects more difficult to manage.
Solpadeine Max Soluble tablets contain caffeine, so you should avoid drinks which also contain a lot of caffeine while taking this product. This includes drinks like coffee, tea, and energy drinks. Having a lot of caffeine can result in side effects such as difficulty sleeping, shaking, and an uncomfortable feeling in your chest.
If you’re taking any other medication, including those you obtained without a prescription, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking this product. This especially applies to:
You should not take this product if you are taking any other medications which contain paracetamol. This could lead to you taking too much paracetamol, which can cause unpleasant side effects. If you’re not sure whether the medication you’re taking contains paracetamol, feel free ask your Chemist 4 U pharmacist for help and advice.
