Wow, I am gobsmacked at this thread.
You both obviously know a lot about
pain meds, which I had not the faintest idea of. I thought that because I knew about
the receptors that opiates work on, I was fairly well clued up. That bit about
being careful where the patch is worn, and having hot baths....I hadn't a clue ! Never mind the overlap. By comparison, my advice in the chatroom was moronically simplistic in the extreme - eat linseed !
I suppose it just goes to show, there is an art in the simplest thing. One person's "knowledgeable" is another person's "bit basic" (Yeah, that would be me here.
Oh well, now I am a bit better educated...never know when the information overflow may come in handy some day..
