Expertise in the spectrum of pain

Pain is frustrating. It can strike at any time, and even the most common types such as headache or period pain can turn into a problem that stops you getting on with your day.

When the ordinary painkillers you buy over the counter, at the supermarket or in your local convenience store are not helping with your everyday pain, the Solpadeine range of products are clinically proven to provide optimum pain relief when simple analgesics such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone are not enough.

Solpadeine Max and Solpadeine Plus are painkillers containing codeine and paracetamol, and can be bought from the pharmacy to provide short-term relief from mild-to-moderate everyday pain.

Community pharmacists are the experts in medicines, so talking to your pharmacist about your pain will help them recommend the right product for you, as well as enable them to recognise any ‘red flag’ symptoms that mean you should see your GP or another healthcare professional for further treatment and care.
