Dihydrocodeine Tablets BP Indication

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.
