Hi. . I take 500mg of Naproxen twice a day up to 8 codydramol but tend to just take them to help me sleep and swap them for paracetamol during the day also pregabalin 150mg at night. . I take other stuff too but that's my pain regime xx

None on a normal day, a few ibuprofen cycled with paracetamol on bad days.

Hi

I use a fentanyl pain patch which gets changed every 2 days, meant to be every 3 days but I had a big dip on the 3rd day so pain clinic changed it to every 2 days. I use 6 fentanyl buccal tabs a day and 40mg nortriptyline at night.

That's it just now but I have things altered regularly as I am still not on the right combination for me, pain pain pain!!! :cry:

I take 1 naproxen in the morning & 1 at night and also 1 zomorph (MST morphine) 30mg in the morning and at night then 4-8 paracetamol and 4-8 doses or oramorph during the day. On top of those I take 1 lansoprozole, 1 loratadine, 2-3 sachets movicol, 1 100mcg levothyroxine & my inhaler for my asthma each day.
