Description

Dihydrocodeine Tablets 30mg are indicated in all painful conditions where an alert patient is desired, eg sciatica, osteo-arthritis, chronic rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis of the spine, peripheral vascular disease, post-herpetic neuralgia, Paget's disease, malignant disease, post-operative pain.

4.1 Therapeutic indications

1) As an analgesic for the relief of moderate to severe pain. Dihydrocodeine Tablets 30mg are indicated in all painful conditions where an alert patient is desired, eg sciatica, osteo-arthritis, chronic rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis of the spine, peripheral vascular disease, post-herpetic neuralgia, Paget's disease, malignant disease, post-operative pain.

Because dihydrocodeine, in the recommended doses, causes little or no respiratory depression, its use in the treatment of post-operative pain may reduce the risk of chest complications.

Posology

The analgesic effect is not materially enhanced by increasing the dose above that recommended below; in severe cases the interval between doses should be reduced to obtain the requisite analgesic cover.

Adults and children over 12 years: 1 tablet every four to six hours or at the discretion of the practitioner. Maximum dose in 24 hours 180mg (6 tablets).

Paediatric population: A more suitable dosage form is recommended for children under 12 years (e.g. elixir).

Elderly: Dosage should be reduced in the elderly.

 

Contraindications

• Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients listed in section 6.1.

• Respiratory depression

• Obstructive airways disease

• Acute alcoholism

• Risk of paralytic ileus

• Head injuries or conditions in which intracranial pressure is raised.
