Clinical Trials Related to Dihydrocodeine BPM Phenyleph (Dihydrocodeine / Brompheniramine / Phenylephrine)

Randomized Controlled Double Blind Trial of Short vs Long Acting Dihydrocodeine in Chronic Non-malignant Pain [Completed]
We wish to compare the effect of long acting vs short acting opioids in chronic non-malignant pain. The study opioid is Dihydrocodeine Continus and Dihydrocodeine 30 mg tablets. We measure pain relief, health related quality of life, sleep, breakthrough pain and depression with validated questionnaires to compare the two treatment arms. Hypothesis: The pain relief will be better and more stable with long acting opioids. Quality of sleep, breakthrough pain and quality of life will also be improved with long acting dihydrocodeine.

A Study to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of Fentanyl-TTS Compared to Weak Opioids in Patients With Moderate to Severe Chronic Cancer Pain Previously Treated With NSAIDS (Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs). [Completed]
To show, using the analgesic WHO scale, that fentanyl-TTS may be directly used for treating moderate to severe cancer pain in patients treated with NSAIDs, acetaminophen, or metamizole (first step drugs) avoiding the second step, and may be at least as effective and safe as currently used second step drugs, minor opioids.
