Hi Pain Princess


I take Pregabalin 200mg 3 times a day
MST continus 15mg twice a day then 30 mg at night
Amitriptyline 30 to 40 mgs at night
Oramorph as when needed.

I hope this helps i haven't really had any side effects from any of the drugs. The only one i was really bad with was oxycontin and was in A & E for 4 hours due to a reaction from it.

We cant tell you which is best painprincess we dont know your medical history and so may make things very much worse for you. The only thing you can do really is to go to your doc and discuss it with them explaining your fears and they should be able to give you all the right information :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: you get some relief soon

Hiya,

I was wondering if you could try and ring the NHS direct? I've done that when my doctor put me on tramadol and cymbalta and I got really worried about mixing them and the side effects.

Gentle hugs,
