    I'm interested in finding out what pain meds you're prescribed (UK).

    I went from Co-codamol 30/500 to DF118s to Pethedine. I dont over do it, I do have to take 2 halves through the night and sometimes one in the daytime but try to go without if possible.

    I'm wondering what other people are prescribed and how do you find it.

    Anyone get Oxycontin - seems to be prescribed big in USA and it can be time released.

    thanks
    Rosie

    i have tramadol at 100mg upto 3 times a day if needed, i usually take 100mg.

    tizanidine at 2mg one a day.

    amitriptyline at 50mg at night.

    its the right balance of meds for me and i am doing very well on it. i suffer less attacks of fatigue than i did and i've been considering coming off the dla AND adding to the amount of courses i planned to take.
