when it comes to meds my body seems to say no way hosey and decides its best to rejectone way or another! ,I have been on amitryptiline for years(not that they seem to do much) and my body seems to be okay with them
however I decided to do a bit of detective work and found a drug called nefopam(it's brand name is acupan) apparently it has been out there for years so it is not a new drug
it won't get rid of pain but will work in a way that your brain interprets pain signals ( like most painkillers then)
soooo, I spoke to my g.p today on the 'phone and he says he is happy to prescribe them for me and we will start very low dose & gradually creep up on them (so hopefully my body will not notice and won't go into reject mode!!!)
I will let you all know in a few months if I ended up (a) with any pain relief and (b) if my body didn't reject it!!
