Hi.. I have been on 30/500 cocodimal for past year prior to that 15/500...diagnosed Psoriatic Arthritis 4 years ago also stable on 15mg methatrexate.
Had mri 2 lower vertebra/discs bit iffy and swelling on root nerve. Great rheumy and gp.. GP trying to help my pain. Tried gabapentin didn't help so stuck to cocodimal.
Tried dihydrocodeine but reacted so off that. Dr now given me oramorph.
normally sleep ok with pain thanks to amytriplalene 25mg but last few morningsv terrible pain and I thought my pain threshold was high lol.
Anyhow tried oramorph 7 am just 5 ml didn't touch..almost 4 hrs later and still waiting to feel better. Not taken any cocodimal today yet... cocodimal normally kicks in within about 45 mins and expected liquid oramorph to work by now.. maybe I'm in more pain than I think lol.
hoping to get dr appointment tomorrow anyhow but would love your opinions. Thanks
