lying down alot due to pains
my doctor has prescribed this tablet to me because the consultant i was seeing down the hospital
THINKS :help: that the constant agonising pains im having are nerve related due to being cut open twice in the last 9 months
now i have to admit even though i do trust my doctor i dont trust this consultant he has in the past just ignored what i have told him and tried fobbing me of with saying it was scar tissue due to other ops ive had in the past the pains im having now are the same pains i had when i woke up from the last op which at the time i was told that they wil go your body has to heal blah blah blah
mean while in the real world i am struggling to do anything on a day to day basis im addicted to pain killers codeine and paracetomol i have to take silly amounts some days just to be able to have some pain reduction im also addicted to zopiclone have been on them on and off for over 12 years now
before the last op i had cut down on all 3 tablets especially the codeine as that causes alot of probs with my bowels its like anever ending circle
i dont feel like im in control anymore so do i start these new tablets given what they are and reading the side effects scare me to see if they might help
any advise would be welcome please :help: :eek2:

hi, my son is on this drug for pain relief, we didnt really have much choice in it. he is on a whacking high dose that ive been trying to drop, plus manage the pain he is in. he takes it for a nerve disorder. it does ease the pain, he is still feeling some type of discomfort but not like he was.

yes the side effects do bother me and his have been stomach problems/pain and his hair started to fall out.

i dont know the addictiveness of this drug, so cant help you on this. i know its an anti-epileptic

Internal Medicine DOC

Sounds an overload of medical issues & treatment in different
Areas I am guessing u have a few docs!? Anyways very familiar with Neurontin its older and long history of being effective in multiple areas along with other pain meds...but all people respond different so
but if feeling out of control meet and discuss concerns an Internal Med Dr
is broad levels of care...just idea! Yes I hope u regain control as I can only imagine ur constant stress..wish well:)
