Hi all,
Went to see my Family Dr on tuesday, He's given me Athrotec to help with pain. Starting to feel a difference already with the pain, YIPPEE:)
Has anyone else been on this drug.

On cloud 9 at the moment, i'm still very fatigued, not alot i can do about that just sleep ( what a lovely thought ):)

Hi Sandra,

Thats great you are noticing some difference, it's a non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. There are a lot of different ones out there and we probably cover the full range here between us all :)

You will probably notice even more difference during this next week, NSAIDS take up to 2 weeks to reach their full effect.

Long may it continue :thumbs:

love
Lily

Thanks Pam & Lily,
The Dr told me it could take up to 2 weeks, i still get pain which usually kicks up in the evenings, after i've been to work.
But it is a lot less than it was, and it makes a big difference in how i feel over all, i still get fatigued but while i'm at work i seem to have more energy, and the lack of intense is wonderful.
Can i have a beer with this drug as i like to, not often when we go out.

Sandra.

Hi Doris,
I guess they have told you it's crucial to not take these on an empty stomach?
A beer or two should not be a problem, just don't go overdoing it :rotfl:

love
Lily

Thanks Lily,
My stomach is not good at the best of times, since having my gall bladder removed.
So i am taking them with food without fail.
