Dihydrocodeine (DHC) is a synthetic opioid analgesic developed in the early 1900s. It is similar in structure and mechanism to codeine and is used for the management of moderate to moderately severe pain as well as coughing and shortness of breath.
Advice & Tips:
I find Dihydracodine really helpful for my pain alhtough it doesnt always RID me of my pain it really reduces the amount of pain that I am in to a comfortable level. The only thing that I dont like about it is that it can cause constipation but I try to eat as much fibre as possible to counteract the effects of the codine in my system and this seems to help more than hinder. I have been on these for many years and there efficiency has never changed.
