Buy Solpadeine Plus Soluble - 24 Tablets

Solpadeine Plus Soluble - 24 Tablets are a medicine used for the short-term relief of acute to moderate pain. The medication is used when other painkillers have not worked.

 

How Solpadeine Plus Soluble works

Solpadeine Plus Soluble contains 3 active ingredients: paracetamol, codeine and caffeine.

Codeine belongs to a group of medicines called opioid analgesics which work to help relieve pain. Paracetamol is another anelgesic, also used to treat pain. The caffeine works to help with the effectiveness of the paracetamol.
