I only take these when my pain levels are really bad. They do take the edge of the pain but can make me a bit incoherent

I feel Co-codamol isn’t any use and the only reason I’m taking them is because I am definately addicted. I’ve mentioned these concerns to my gp to no avail.

i also take numerous other medications including liquid and or capsules of morphine from time to time for my back because I have 2 slipped discs and pain from the sciatic nerve.

luckily I have a medication review again next week so again going to voice my concerns. As well as these two medications I also take trospium tablets for my bladder, 6mg of diazepam for nerve pain, pregablin twice a day, and baclofen 2 times a day. I feel that hardly any of this medication is doing anything for my ms (except the trospium). I ideally would like to be medication free and have thought about taking CBD Oil instead? Anybody had experience about this or advice they could share with me? I am SPMS but most of the problems I have are invisible and not physical.

Co-Codamol doesn't appear to help. Perhaps 'cos that's the amount of codeine I am prescribed in the tablet itself. It may help to ease the pain, but is not something I would use permanently.

Due to epilepsy, my doctor won't prescribe anything with a higher amount of Codeine.

Causes constipation and drowsiness. Limited effect on reducing pain. Sometimes feel that side effects outweigh the limited benefits. Have reduced the amount I take over the years and I am now looking at alternative treatments with the chronic pain team.
