It is used for moderate to severe pain

  • Dihydrocodeine can be mixed with paracetamol in certain preparations such as co-dydramol
  • Both short acting and sustained release dihydrocodeine is available
  • Dihydrocodeine is sometimes known by its trade names DHC Continus and DF118 Forte
  • It is important to read the patient leaflet for a full list of side effects and cautions.

Dihydrocodeine is a semi-synthetic form of opioid pain relief. It works by blocking the signals that are sent from the area of pain to the brain. This means that your sensation of the pain is either reduced or eliminated.

Dihydrocodeine does not treat the cause of the pain, but it may help you to feel more comfortable whilst recovering from an injury or operation.

Minimising pain is helpful for recovery. If you are able to mobilise then your risk of a post-operative blood clot will be reduced. You may also be able to cough more comfortably to prevent a chest infection after an operation.

Dihydrocodeine Tablets

Dihydrocodeine is available as a tablet or liquid. The tablets should be swallowed with water.

It is advisable to take dihydrocodeine with a meal or snack, as this may reduce the risk of side effects including nausea or vomiting.

Dihydrocodeine 30mg

A common dose of standard release dihydrocodeine is 30mg taken every 4 to 6 hours. The maximum dose across 24 hours is 180mg. Standard dihydrocodeine takes around two hours to begin working fully.

Slow release tablets are also available. The dose of dihydrocodeine begins working more slowly, but has a longer pain-relieving effect. This means the tablets can be taken less frequently. The usual dose of slow release dihydrocodeine is 60mg to 120mg taken twice a day.Buy Dihydrocodeine 30mg
