Omeprazol should be taken with Ibuprofen . It lines the stomach to prevent the above . Not sure about bitumen ! Boys from the black stuff ?
Guess that's to prevent what happened to me.
Corrected the bitumen to brufen. That would give you an ulcer and worse!

A lot in the medical professions call it 'brufen' for short apparently.

 

Mrs CC, a nurse for 35+ years never calls it anything else, and when I was feeling especially brave and challenged her on it one day I got duly put in my place.

Is it you who has sheep? I ask because we are lambing in March. I have permanent pins and needles in my right hand from 2 stroke engine vibes. Takes a while but use left hand for most dexterous demanding tasks now. Good luck.

Yeah got lambing coming up in March aswell

Ps, going through this thread has made me feel a bit better about my painkiller consumption if nothing else.

 

Some eyebrow raising stuff on here.

No disrespect to anyone on here, and I sincerely hope no one takes offence as it's most certainly not intended, but I reckon some people are hooked on them.

 

They are addictive, but I'm also aware (very!) that they bring relief.

 

I would just ask anyone that takes them day and daily as a matter of routine to look at their own circumstances and pollute the hell out of their GP to see if there is any alternative course of action open to them.

 

Again, no offence meant to anyone, but like anti-depressants and so many other medicines, while they certainly serve a purpose at the time, long term they are bad shit.

No one is going to take offence.

 

I remember raising this subject on a yank forum and being shocked at the painkiller use, but especially by the casual and widespread use of anti-depressants in the US.

My dad had a Tremadol prescription for around 14 years after two prolapses in his back.

 

I tried and tried to get him off them.  He wasn’t having any of it.  I told him he was addicted, to which we nearly came to blows over.  He said he definitely wasn’t addicted.  I asked what happened when he forgot to take his night pills?  Answer, nothing, he would just lie awake all night sweating and tossing and turning.

 

I just told him to look up the withdrawal symptoms from Opiates.

 

Those pills contributed to so many problems in the relationship with my father.
 

He was still taking them right up to his death.  He was being treated for cancer and part of the treatment reviewed his other meds.  The specialists couldn’t believe he was prescribed such a drug for so long.

 

We raised this with the GP and he was in the process of reviewing everything when my father passed away.

 

Tremadol distorted his sense of what is right and wrong.  He would be very argumentative and irrational.  
 

It is a terribly effective drug for pain relief but also a terrible drug in other ways.

 

I wish you all well.

That's dreadful.

 

For all the rhetoric around illegal drugs, mostly justified, to me the two most societally damaging things in the UK are entirely legal, namely alcohol and prescription drugs.

It is what it is, I guess.

 

It changed the man I called my father.  
 

There were other contributing factors to his behaviour, such as the constant pain from the back injury and severe bitterness he had towards other life episodes from the past.

 

Some of these things were real but some of them were blown out of proportion from his distorted sense of right and wrong due to the Tremadol.

 

Did anyone see Frankie Boyles Tremadol Nights a few years back?  That was a f’ed up show and that take on comedy was similar to the distortion I noticed in my fathers attitude.
