I'd like to ask you about
the analgesic drugs (pain-killers), you take when having a strong headache
. I used to use some paracetamol (acetaminophen), metamizole or naproxen, but the aches I get (probably due to the Remicade treatment) are too strong. Even tramadol seems to be pretty weak drug for them.
So, what do you take for strong headaches? I've read on some other forum, that codeine
is pretty good for them. And it has less interactions than tramadol.
However, it's available (in its pure form) only for prescript
ion. I'd willingly find out if it's helpful. It can make the bowel activity slower, in addition, but some leaflet I've read warns to keep careful when using it in the UC...
My drugs (I've UC for a few years, if anybody was curious; autodiagnosed SA and depressive problems): mesalazine, azathioprine, infliximab, iron meds, vitamins (sometimes) & probiotics; the methylprednisolone therapy of several months if needed (then, protectively, potassium meds and omeprazole as well).
I worry about my liver and kidneys for the reasons above, I hope that unnecessarily.
I worry if anxiety problems (SA) could impact on the UC as well.
I have nothing more to say at the moment (I've already said very much for me...).
