What is Dihydrocodeine?

You may be wondering what dihydrocodeine actually is and what it is used for. If you have been prescribed dihydrocodeine then it is only natural that you will want to do a little bit of research before purchasing your medication.

 

What are dihydrocodeine tablets used for?

Dihydrocodeine is an opiate medication. Unlike other opioid painkillers such as codeine, dihydrocodeine is a synthetic opiate, meaning that it was created in a lab as opposed to being taken from the poppy plant. Dihydrocodeine is a painkiller that is used to help combat moderate to severe pain in those that are taking it. Pain is generally measured as mild, moderate, and severe. Only you can tell how bad your pain is, however, when you speak to a doctor they will be able to determine whether or not you will require strong painkillers such as dihydrocodeine. A good way of rating your pain is to put it on a scale of 1-10. Here is a useful way of measuring your pain that you can use to diagnose severity.

 

  • Mild Pain 

1 - Very mild. Pain is very mild and you will often forget about it.

2 - Mild. Pain that is more annoying, however, is very manageable and does not cause great levels of discomfort.

3 - Milder. Pain is noticeable and distracting but can be ignored for long periods. Can be managed at home.

 

  • Moderate Pain

4 - Pain that can be ignored, but is consistently a mild distraction. Can be treated at home however sometimes this is not adequate. 

5 - Pain that cannot be ignored for more than a few minutes. You can still function, but it will take effort. 

6 - Pain that can interfere with day-to-day life. Can be difficult to ignore, or treat from home.

 

  • Severe Pain

7 - Pain that limits your day-to-day life and regular routines. Home treatment does not bring proper relief. 

8 - Pain that limits physical ability and that requires great effort to function.

9 - Pain that leaves you unable to speak or function. Can cause you to cry out or moan uncontrollably. 

10 - Pain that is unbearable. Will leave people unable to move or speak. Very few people will ever experience this level of pain.
