Co-Dydramol - February 21st 2012, 10:01 AM

Went to the doctors for my back pain and he prescribed me Co-Dydramol 10/500. He didn't examine my back, just saw that I could barely stand up and can't bend my back.
He went to prescribe me Co-Codamol, but when I took them last I was violently sick, so didn't want that happening again. It seems I have to be careful with paracetamol as my stomach reacts to it because of the overdoses in the past.

Now i'm too scared to take the co-dydramol as i'm worried that it'll make me vomit again. Though I do terribly need it for the pain, I can't have a reaction like that again.

Has anyone been on these and noticed a difference between the two? Is one worse that the other?
I just need some piece of mind that it won't affect me badly before I take it.

I have no experience with either, however if there is ever any pills or such i need to take, but can't keep down, a method I have used in the past is grind it up into a milkshake or smoothie and absorb it slower

Hey! I've had both. Co-dydramol is dihydrocodeine and paracetamol. It's pretty damn good and it is very different to co-codamol. Codeine isn't tolerated very well in many people. Ensure you take it after food- ie a yoghurt. It helps to settle the stomach. The one thing I don't get is why your doctor hadn't examined you...if the pain isn't better after tomorrow then go to A+E. I know WG is a bit of a pain but you need to get it looked at!

Love you lots <3

Lottie is rigt. If it's not better soon, then go to A+E. Even if he THINKS he knows what is causing your back pain, he should still examine you.

But hopefully you get to feeling better soon.
