I only came across Solpadeine about eight months ago, when my husband's dentist recommended it to him after a wisdom tooth extraction. As it turned out, although we bought a pack, my husband didn't need to use it. However a week or so later I developed a stinker of a migraine which refused to...

Hello, I am writing this note as i know that my partner cannot do without taking Solpadeine regularly on a daily basis. It is really upsetting me and i have spoken to him about it. He said that he will stop taking them because i told him how concerned i am. However, i know that he hasnt stopped and is taking them in work or when i'm not around. I found a box of 24 with 2 left in it. I asked him was he addicted to them and he said 'yes, i suppose i am'. I am well up on the very harmful effects they cause in excess. He also smokes quite heavily and likes alcohol too. It worries me the concoction of all of these together. Can someone please give me advise...
