Hi, I have an appointment with my dr in a couple of weeks, and wanted to go armed with some suggestions for meds, as mine just don't seem to be helping.

GP reluctant to prescribe me Tapentadol (Palexia) anymore.

This drug was originally prescribed to me by a private consultant two or three years ago, and I've been taking it since then through prescriptions issued through my local practice. However, after receiving my latest repeat prescription, my new GP phoned me up after a warning was flagged up on her computer screen, and offered to replace it with Tramadol a less potent opioid. I wonder if it's down to to the recent concerns about ...

Gabapentin vs codeine.

So the only pain releif my doctors have really offered me so far is Gabapentin, which I've not really found very effective and has some unpleasant side effects...drowsiness ect.

What I've found a lot more effective is codeine, I've not been prescribed it but you can buy low strength stuff over the counter in the UK. There's side effects there too but I find them more tolerable, especially as actually notice a big difference in ...

Any tried Nefopam for pain relief?

Results? Side effects?

About to give it a try for occasional use to supplement my ibuprofen/paracetamol on very bad days when I still need to function.

I was on sertraline and small dose of ami to help me sleep, but after 18 months dr reckons sertraline not working and making things worse! I do agree with him though.

How strong is tramadol?

Just recently been prescribed this as cocodamol wasn't controlling the pain enough and wasn't agreeing with me. How much stronger is it than Kapake/Solpadol (30/500 cocodamol)?

Also could anyone tell me what the next step up from tramadol is? I'm just curious as I don't know a lot about painkillers. I'm also on Sertraline, Pregabalin, Amitryptiline, paracetamol and ibuprofen. Thank you :-D
