I have had two tablets, as advised and feel woooooosy giddy

am i a lightweight???

PetiteBateau Sat 23-Aug-14 20:11:13

Are they 8/500's or 30/500's? If it's the latter, you're not a lightweight

Gumnast2014 Sat 23-Aug-14 20:11:14

No what ones?

They are strong

The 30/500 knock me right out, kill the pain for sciatica but give me a headache so pointless

Pancakeflipper Sat 23-Aug-14 20:11:37

They are good but make me feel a little queasy..

baldisbeautiful Sat 23-Aug-14 20:11:42

Exactly how I felt after being told my doc last month to take 2 for a migraine. Only took them once as I really didnt like the feeling, they did take the pain away though!!

Loveneverfails Sat 23-Aug-14 20:14:33


do feel sick too <yuk>

Loveneverfails Sat 23-Aug-14 20:14:56

defo no pain tho!

meglet Sat 23-Aug-14 20:15:05

yup, I hate them. I was dead poorly once and tried half a 200mg tablet. I felt wasted and had nightmares all night.

I'm a bit odd though, I don't like anything that makes me feel out of control woozy. I seem to cope better with pain confused.

They are really strong, I stopped taking them because they made me feel so spacey!

MikeLitoris Sat 23-Aug-14 20:16:43

30/500 don't touch my pain. I have to take two, one Naproxene and 20mg Amitriptyline to get anything close to pain relief sad

They did take a bit of getting used to though. I felt light headed and a bit queasy when I first started taking them.

Loveneverfails Sat 23-Aug-14 20:18:00

I am proper spaced. My word, who knew

Just do NOT have a glass of wine after you had them <bitter experience>

SiL gave me a couple some Christmasses ago when I had a terrible toothache on Christmas Day; pain went; I forgot all about being poorly grin; had ONE glass of wine - and weeeeeeeeeee I was flying shock

Never again, seriously, 'twas not pleasant.

PetiteBateau Sat 23-Aug-14 20:18:36

Yeah the 30/500's make me feel completely stoned

Loveneverfails Sat 23-Aug-14 20:24:53

that is how i feel blush

amyhamster Sat 23-Aug-14 20:27:52

They give me constipation blush as do most painkillers bizarrely
I take ibruprofen before big things like interviews & it stops my funny tummy & loose bowels through nerves blush

Loveneverfails Sat 23-Aug-14 20:28:53

clever thinking grin

Lonecatwithkitten Sat 23-Aug-14 20:30:09

Constipate me and don't really help the pain. 1000mg of Naproxen is my perfect drug.

unrealhousewife Sat 23-Aug-14 20:30:25

Codeine is an opiate, makes me feel like a junkie.

JamaicanMeCrazy Sat 23-Aug-14 20:31:31

I can't take codeine based drugs, they do nothing at all to me hmm I have tramadol plus gabapentin and that barely helps either ffs envy

bumbleymummy Sat 23-Aug-14 20:33:19

Watch out for the bloating and constipation!

Loveneverfails Sat 23-Aug-14 20:33:47

thats not funny Jamaican.

tilliebob Sat 23-Aug-14 20:34:27

I hate them as they really upset my stomach confusedconfused. And I don't find them effective for pain relief!

I accidentally took one of my FILs mistaking it for paracetamol, just before getting on an aeroplane.

Whoo. Flying in more ways than one. I thought I was going nuts...!

ALittleFaith Sat 23-Aug-14 20:38:29

If you need more than paracetamol but 60mg codeine (which is a big dose!) try taking 1 500mg paracetamol and 1 30/500 co-codamol next time. I found 30mg of codeine made me a bit fuzzy headed but I could manage.

Tramadol is a opiate Jamaican
