Mine is Panadol Osteo (useless!) and fish oil tablets (slightly useless.)

VERY occasionally I take half a Mersyndol Day Strength—one tablet lasts me a year, need really severe pain for me to resort to that.

Working on my block ATM has my shoulders hurting pretty bad but I know that driving back to Adelaide that will decline so not taking anything for it. Try to shower with the water as hot as I can bear followed by cold water on the shoulders. I think that helps, maybe it is the glow of virtue for being able to stand a cold shower?

That Is why I supplement those medications with alcohol every afternoon. The amount I drink depends on the pain level.

You can't buy that anymore. It is banned, because it contained codeine. Must be an old pack eh?

The ban on opiate-based pain-killers is a Chinese Bandaid.

I made sure to buy a packet of it before the ban went into effect. I found a part packet of them too. Took two half-tablets last year (at different times.) Sometimes helps the Panadol DO something. Doctor won’t give me a script. I did not get addicted to the Endones so I am not going to get addicted to low dose codeine!

This might sound like a silly question, but ru taking the osteo Panadol according to directions.

It’s not like taking the normal Panadol for a headache.

It’s a slow release version that basically ends up acting as maintenance dosages for the pain thresholds.

Once u have determined the dosage that u need - without exceeding the daily dosage level recommended on the packaging.

That daily dosage should be continually maintained.

Check with ur Chemist first to verify that my comments is correct!

I’m aware that we have digressed from the threads heading.

But I’m trying to assist people into pain management as I have inside info from a Pharmacist!

Don’t take ur advice from a Doctor who only do a short course on pharmaceuticals as part of the Uni degree.

Young Doctors will listen to a Pharmacist advise -especially in a hospital environment- not like the old arrogant Doctors who are more likely to follow the sales pitch of a pharmaceutical company booklet.

Oh you are correct in what you are told by doctors about paracetamol ( Panadol is a brand name... a brand I often hear drs spruiking.)

I do not take any of those types of pain-killers. OH except when I had several teeth removed, but even then I only took a couple of Ibuprofen tablets. Those DRUGS....... both paracetamol and Ibuprofen …….. are NOT something I'd take everyday. That's crazy, but that's what I get told too.

Nah NO WAY ./.. you are loading up your kidneys with so much they were never intended to flush...

Drink heaps of water if you are a PANADOL ADDICT. ÇOS you know what..? you can die from an overdose of it.

Find alternatives that don't feed corporate fucking greed.

THEY don't care how many people die...… it's all about the money. I'd have to say PANADOL would have to have had the very best marketing team, over the years.

Can you even imagine how much money was spent to sell it to us, >> I can't, to be honest. it boggles the mind.

If you value your health, DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR, ……….. find other means of pain control.

I take a couple if pain is bad but also plan rests when working etc. If pain is really bad I take half a low dose codeine tablet. I also have my shower as hot as I can then turn the hot water off and have a quick cold shower: I think that helps.

Well I don't, because I am prescribed a diff sort of pain-killer..

it acts on the BRAIN Pain Receptors, not all the body nerves.

Hey,, I used MS Contin for years, off and on, as required. I didn't get addicted.. that is all just so much spin. I haven't had it for a few yrs now.. I still have plenty of MS CONTIN, prescribed to me in 2015. It worked, BUT ... I found a better pain-manager.

Paracetamol is extremely toxic, in long term use, or large dose use. It may be legal, but it isn't safe. I do NOT use those drugs eg PARACETOMAL.

I much prefer the home-grown remedy.

Yup, I take two Panadol Osteo when pain is bad. The amount of paracetemol in them makes your eyes pop!

That’s most probably why it a slow release medication.

It won’t give relief for headache in a hurry.

Sad that the government continues to deny effective pain relief to people, for purely political reasons , because they are so blinkered.

Makes me sick

Yup. Might do some aquaculture in Tassie. . .I went to a hydroponics shop to buy “effective microbes” to spray on my trees (with other stuff like Seasol and Charlie Carp and neem oil) and we got to mentioning pain relief. . .I have a UK address can send me some seeds, Legal over there tho they do not have a progressive government.

I do hope, but it reminds me of something my older brother said, years before he died from Lymphoma.... he said, he'd be dead before
Pot was ever available legally.
He was right.

The last time saw him, I gave him some prime buds to smoke, and the sheer relief on his face, and his body, said it all. :sad
