What is Dihydrocodeine?

Dihydrocodeine is used to deal with moderate to severe pain. The usual side-effects when taking this medicine are constipation, feeling sick or dizzy, sleepiness, and dry sensation in the mouth. Dihydrocodeine will basically impact your ability to drive and your reactions. It is advisable that you refrain from driving if you are under the influence of this medicine, especially if it is your first time taking it.

Dihydrocodeine is another type of opioid medicine or occasionally called opiate. It is widely-used to cure moderate to sever pain. This medicine works by attaching some tiny parts known as opioid receptors into your brain and spinal cord or the central nervous system. As a result, the pain you will feel will be reduced and your reaction to the pain will decrease. Dihydrocodeine is accessible with prescription from your doctor.

Dihydrocodeine does not need to be converted by the liver, this means there is no ceiling effect unlike codeine so you can re-dose with full effect.

Generally, Dihydrocodeine is prescribed together with paracetamol as pain killer in the form of co-dydramol.
