i am actualy am look painkiller for Fibromyalgia - sure that should be prescriprion whichever it is.
Do you think they stopped giving it for a reason and therefore probably wise to take the Dr's advice?
My doctor gave me Naproxen, if my memory serves me right, for back pain. He wouldn't give me any more, he said they could have nasty side effects if taken long term.
^ My doc said exactly the same to me and took me off them in favour of co-codamol.
