What is Solpadol?
Solpadol is ranked as one of the most potent painkillers available. Codeine and paracetamol make up the majority of the ingredients of this medication. These two-work hand in hand to prevent and eliminate pain. Pain signals aimed towards the brain are intercepted by paracetamol before it reaches it. Soon after, codeine takes action in containing the signals. The two painkillers make a powerful combination to deal with the worst pain.
Prescription of Solpadol is needed to treat pains of severe stature. Pains from migraine, muscular pain, bone and joints, injury to muscle and bones, surgical procedures, and a lot more are treated with Solpadol. Prescription of this medicine becomes a necessity if all other painkillers fail to eradicate or control the pain.
Usage of Solpadol

The time in between dose is four hours. Solpadol must be taken on a single dose strictly. Even if the patient misses out on a dose, the next dose should still be a single dose. If the patient forgets to take the medication on time, he can take it immediately and adjust the time of the succeeding takes.
