Solpadeine migraine tablets

Solpadeine Migraine Ibuprofen & Codeine Tablets 200mg are the most effective painkiller for symptoms of migraines that can be obtained without a prescription. These tablets contain both ibuprofen and codeine, allowing them to alleviate acute mild or moderate pains in the short term (for up to three days). Solpadeine can by used to combat pain from a variety of causes, including migraines, injury, fibrositis or neuralgia.

Solpadeine Migraine tablets contain 12.8mg of codeine along with ibuprofen. This combination makes for a highly effective painkiller.

Ibuprofen is an example of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This kind of drug reduces inflammation and pain by preventing cyclo-oxygenase from acting. Cyclo-oxygenase is a naturally occurring enzyme that is involved in the production of prostaglandins as a response to injury or other conditions. Prostaglandins are a cause of inflammation and pain, so by preventing cyclo-oxygenase from performing its normal function, ibuprofen reduces both pain and inflammation.

Codeine phosphate is an opioid. Another example of this type of drug is morphine, though codeine is a lot weaker than morphine. Opioid painkillers act as if they are endorphins, which is a chemical found in the body that reduces pain. Opioid receptors bond with endorphins in the spinal chord or brain, reducing painful symptoms.

Codeine phosphate acts like endorphins, bonding with opioid receptors. The result of these bonds is that nerve signals that notify the brain of pain are blocked. This means that even though the cause of pain is still present, the brain does not feel as much pain.

Solpadeine Migraine tablets are most effective when taken alongside or directly after food.

Solpadeine Migraine tablets can be used by adults of over 18 years of age. One or two tablets can be taken every four hours, up to three times per day. No more than six tablets should be taken in a single day.
