Managing pain

We can help you with:

  • finding ways to manage your pain
  • reducing your dose of pain medication, if that's what you need

Medications that should be reviewed

Studies have shown that some medications should only be used for a short time. This is because they can become less effective over time or may cause problems of their own.

These include:

  • opioids - morphine-based painkillers such as codeine, tramadol, oxycodone
  • benzodiazepines
  • sleeping tablets, for example Zopiclone
  • gabapentin
  • pregabalin
