Pain Relief

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Pain. Below is what he has to say.

We've all experienced pain, headaches, sore muscles, arthritis and injuries. Pain can reach from mild to unbearable, but can nearly always be addressed by the right medications.

Sometimes, over the counter medicines such as paracetemol or ibuprofen can be enough, but if you have tried these and they haven't helped, a doctor may be able to prescribe you something more effective.

Remember, stronger pain medications can have potential drawbacks. Opioids can be highly addictive and should only be used under a doctor's supervision.

Discontinuing these medications suddenly after prolonged use can cause withdrawal symptoms so you should never do this without professional advice.

If you need a stronger pain medication, such as dihydrocodeine, codeine or co codamol, the online doctor's service at UK Meds may be able to help you.

What is Dihydrocodeine?

It is an opioid medicine. Opioids belong to a group of medicines called analgesics, which are commonly known as painkillers. Its use is to relieve moderate to severe pain caused by conditions including sciatica, shingles, post-surgery, joint and bone pain.

How does it work?

It works by binding to receptors in the body called opioid receptors. These receptors are found in the brain, spinal cord, gut and other parts of the body. They are responsible for sending signals to the brain causing you to feel pain. By binding to these receptors, the transmission of pain signals is blocked resulting in pain relief.

What are the benefits of taking?

Unmanaged pain associated with conditions such as sciatica, bone and joint and post-operative pain can cause great difficulty when completing general day to day tasks. This can result in distress, causing patients to present psychological responses such as low mood, anger, anxiety and in some cases, depression.

Effective use will decrease the amount of pain experienced and increase your tolerance, making injuries and painful conditions more bearable. Consequently, this will allow you to go about your daily routine with little discomfort as possible.

Is Dihydrocodeine Right For Me?

Under certain circumstances, this may not be the correct treatment for your pain. This medicine is used to treat mild to severe pain, such as sciatica, Paget’s disease and shingles, but your medical history may affect if you are allowed to take it.

You may not be prescribed the drug if you are allergic any of the ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet. If you have severe problems with breathing, have recently suffered a head injury, have a liver disease, are suffering from severe diarrhoea or have pheochromocytoma, which is a tumour of the adrenal gland near your kidney, you may not be allowed to take it. You also shouldn’t take this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are suffering from alcoholism.

When completing the medical questionnaire, include any medical condition you have, as well as listing all medication you are currently taking. Make sure you read the patient information leaflet thoroughly before taking the medication.
