    Don't wori it can happen with any new medication that the body is not used to. Please please do not take these any longer than you really need to. They can so easily get a hold of you.

    Hi, I've been on dihydrocodeine tartrate 40mg for 2 years.  Only problem with periods is they don't help the pain , feel like it's become a problem but not sure what to do 😱. Maybe period has become more painful because of these pills ?

      They are no good for period pain. They can sometimes make pain worse if that makes sense. I have been on these for years now. Try tramadol 50mg .  Ibuprofen as well so long as your not asmatic . Terrible spelling lol. Sometimes co codamols , the 30/500mg only from your GP. Take care. I'm 42 and I get fairly bad period pain so I understand.
