My GP prescribed codeine/paracetamol when I first had my PMR symptoms as he didn't want me to start on steroids. He eventually changed his mind when the painkillers barely touched the pain. I still have them and was thinking of taking one or two when I have bad days such as when I reduce the pred. I have heard a lot about people taking NSAIDS, paracetamol or aspirin but nobody as far as I can tell has mentioned codeine. I could go and ask a pharmacist but don't fancy going out in the cold tomorrow. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
