I have used co-proxamol for the last 17 years for migraines - they are the only tablets that work. They make the difference between being completely debilitated and lying in bed for days on end with my head in a bucket, double vision, light sensitivity and excruciating unbearable pain, and being able to function normally.
I've been gievn co-codamol, co-drydamol and tylex, none of which work at all yet alone as well.
After a horse-riding accident 5 months ago I have had the additional burden of headaches caused by constant neck pain, but co-proxamol also cured these. Now my last supplies have run out my life is falling apart. I spend every other day in bed vomiting and in pain. I am at University on the second year of a teaching degree and unless some alternative can be found it looks like I will be unable to complete my degree.
Why did these morons decide to withdraw this drug? There was no consultation or time for an effective alternative to be introduced, my GP just told me I couldnt have them any more. Surely selective precriptions to people who have not abused the drug and for whom it works would have been better?
