Solpadol 500mg / Co-codamol 30/500?
Ive been taking these painkillers for 3 weeks now, i started off with Co-codamol 30/500, then when i went for the repeat prescription it was Solpadol i was given. What is the difference between the two? For the last couple of days i've started to feel extremely nauseous after taking Solpadol but i dont understand why they're suddenly making me sick. Has anyone else had this sudden reaction to them and know what causes it? I cant get to the doctors untill monday so im just asking for some info beforehand. Thanks very much for any help in advance.

co-codamol and solpadol are the same thing just solpadol is the brand.


Dream Maker
Be sure to eat something before taking the meds as they contain codeine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or ask ur doc for something that does not have codeine in it!!!!!!!!!!! There are alot of other meds out there that u can get w/o codeine such as the Fentynol patch.


Santa claus
i wouldnt worry to much my nans 74 and takes solpadol along with a load of other things everyday so dont think you got anything to worry about she evn has a brandy most days. did u take them on an empty stomach eaten something different just feel under the weather might just be coincerdance


Dr Frank
Solpadol is one of the many brand names for Co-codamol, which is the generic name. The soluble form of co-codamol is even more undesirable than the tablet form. It is absorbed more rapidly, gives a greater buzz, and therefore has even more potential for addiction than standard codeine. Codeine and paracetamol preparations, though used in massive numbers, both on and off prescription, are poor drugs in general. The codeine adds no more than 5% to the analgesic properties of paracetamol, but massively increases the risks of complication. The commonest are constipation, headache, abdominal pain and irritability due to withdrawal when a dose is missed or delayed.

Solpadol is asprin based and if you take them on an empty stomach they will cause nausea; whereas co-codamol is codeine based. It's worth asking the chemist why your prescription is different. Is it a mix up or is solpadol cheaper?? Tell the pharmacist about the nausea and i'm sure they'll change it back for you....

be very careful with using painkillers. my doctor had me on hydrocodone, percocets, oxycontin, and others. over a 10 year period i became very dependent on them, and went through hell trying to get off of them


noitall U.K.
There is no difference, both preparations contain Paracetamol 500 mg & Codeine phosphate 30 mg. You may have been given the effervescent version which may not agree with you. Side effects can include: skin rashes, dizziness, sedation, shortness of breath, hypersensitivity reaction, constipation, fainting (syncope or near syncope), nausea and/or vomiting, confusion, loss of short-term memory, drowsiness, changes in blood, allergic reactions, euphoria, dysphoria, abdominal pain, pruritus (itching), easy bruising and bleeding gums. NEITHER preparation contains Aspirin
