The Downside To Codeine (UK Painkiller)

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Okay so I don’t know if anyone else is prescribed Codeine 30mg (2 every 4-6hours) but is it me or is it the worst painkiller. I can take 2 and in an hour I’m asleep or the opposite I’m wide awake and can’t sit still. It either makes me like I have done some energy drug or I’m comatosed??. Then to add to that where credit is due it stops the pain but then it makes me so constipated, I’m drinking and nothing helps then I have to take laxatives because I have gone 3 days without the toilet and I’m… read more

Does anyone take any tablets they can recommend me? I have a doctors appointment tomorrow. I won't some pain relief that will actually help!

CarliJade we are opposites! I tried coedine and it did nothing but naproxen seems to work. Just goes to show how medication affects everyone differently. :)

Codeine For Pain Relief

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have now been on Solpadol 30/500mg for nearly 2 years. Average usage is 4 tablets throughout the day however i have saw so many reviews lately that it could be doing more harm than good. I asked my GP who has advised as long as i am taking my dosage limits i will be fine. Surely it has some sort of effect on my body and will do harm in future?? Anyone had any experience of this? Used Codeine for long periods of time??

Medication

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been tried on every medication possible apart from codeine.. I've been told my multiple people that codeine works better then co-codomal which is what I'm currently taking and it's done nothing for me what so ever. Any ladies taken codeine and found it works? Xx

Pain Management - What Medication For Pain Do You Recommend That Works?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have taken almost everything out there but nothing helps with the pain of Endo. I tried heating pads and it doesn't do anything. I can't use pain meds containing codeine as it makes me so constapated resulting in even worse pain. It also does not aleviate my pain.
Looking for any recommendations that I can try.

Anyone Use Tramadol?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Just wonder if anyone else uses tramadol? And if they feel poorly when stopping taking the medicine. If yes any tips and how to feel any better. I really struggle at the end of my period with nausea and sickness. And shivering and skin hurting.
