I suffer from severe migraines that can last up to 5 days. Unless I take pills for them. (Went to every single neuro surgeon to get tests done when I was a kid, no serious issues just headaches from when the doctors removed a piece of my brain froman accident when I was 5. Fell over a fence, landed on a sidewalk and popped my melon.) the pills I take are caffeine loaded. And use a caffiene delivery. I can take 1. No effect. 2 no effect. Need 3 or 4 and my migraine is gone.Today I found out that one of the milder side effects of Ibuprofen applies to me. I wasn't at home and needed a Panadol but where I was only had Ibuprofen. Last time I had Nurofen was over 10 years ago and only a small pill. Today was a large caplet. As soon as it went in my mouth my tongue went numb
That's the last time I'm taking those.
For my types of headaches I usually take half a 30mg panadeine tablet. But, my Dr is totally against prescribing them to anyone ever, anymore due to a small perrcent of the population (not me) getting addicted and causing the nationwide lockdown of them.
It's always the few who ruin it for everyone.
If I need to I'll go to a different Dr. My Dad's.
In the meantime I have to use Panadol, which are as effective as a packet of Tic Tacs
Chinese name SanLiTong.
Paracetamol 250mg Propyphenazone 150mg and Caffeine 50mg
