Product Information

Dihydrocodeine 30 mg, an opioid analgesic is available to buy without prescription at ApolloWellness. The medicine is highly effective for the treatment of mild to moderate pains caused by surgery, illness, or injuries. It is used by individuals who don’t experience pain relief after taking common painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen. The medicine reduces the intensity of pain experienced by the patient and improves patient comfort.

What is Dihydrocodeine?

Dihydrocodeine 30 mg belongs to a group of medicines called opioid analgesics, which are used for the relief of pain of varying intensity. Dihydrocodeine can be used on its own as a painkiller or sometimes used in combination with other painkillers such as paracetamol. Dihydrocodeine is used for the relief of:

  • Mild to moderate pain not relieved by other painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen alone

  • Symptoms of dry cough

  • Diarrhoea

How does it work?

Dihydrocodeine is an opioid analgesic with a chemical structure similar to that of morphine. It is, however, much less potent as an analgesic than morphine and it causes mild sedation only. The medication binds to opioid receptors, which are present throughout the central nervous system, to produce analgesia, sedation, and a feeling of relaxation. Dihydrocodeine is also used for the treatment of diarrhoea because of its ability to reduce intestinal motility.

What is the recommended dosage?

For the relief of pain, healthy adult individuals may take Dihydrocodeine in doses of 15 mg to 60 mg up to 4 times a day. The maximum recommended daily dose of Dihydrocodeine is 240 mg. For non-productive / dry cough, Dihydrocodeine can be taken in doses of 10 mg to 20 mg every 4 to 6 hours, with total daily dose not exceeding 120 mg. For diarrhoea, 30 mg to 60 mg of Dihydrocodeine should be taken 3 to 4 times a day.

How to use Dihydrocodeine?

Dihydrocodeine 30 mg should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. It is recommended not to stop taking the medication without prior consultation with your doctor as this may result in withdrawal symptoms.
