What is it? I am talking over the counter.

Panadine, neurofen, neurofen plus (I am a fan of panafen plus the cheap version, voltaren?

Any over the counter ketoprofen?

Still pissed off they took viox off the market. That stuff was good.

As long as you don't mind the stroke or heart attack it came with.


The strongest over the counter combo you're going to get is

Neurofen Plus (2 tabs) 3 - 4 times per day.
Paracetamol 1g - 4 times per day.

Avoid big doses of neurofen if you have kidney problems, gastric ulcers, asthma.

Ice whatever hurts post activity, heat it prior to activity.

NSAIDs are 'designed' for use when you have an acute injury. They don't relieve pain, other than by reducing the inflammation associated with the painful area. There have been a number of studies undertaken which suggest that they slow muscle repair - enough to turn many off them.

If you want pain relief, use a painkiller... Are you taking a codeine formulation? Digesic? Or just anti-inflammatories with paracetamol?

As said I us a iburofen codine mix generally, as u have 2 ask for it I have half a dozen chemists I alternate. Wish I could just get over the counter codine. Codine and vodka and you can do anything. Viox risks were well worth it for how well it worked.

You can't get over the counter codeine? Or you can't get over the counter 30mg codeine (panadeine forte strength)?

It's commonly sold in formulations up to ~15mg per tablet + paracetamol, at least around here...

Anyhow, like I said if your injury isnt new your ibuprofen use may not be doing you any favours, but it's your body!

No.

Apart from the purely anti-inflammatory effects of NSAIDs they also decrease the production of prostaglandins that sensitise nerve endings, (sensitisation makes them fire at lower thresholds thus increasing painful nerve transmission) therefore NSAIDs are analgesic drugs as well as anti-inflammatory.

My fishing mate uses tumeric tea, but he eats fruit. I don't have much time for health opinions from people who eat fruit, and has ok results but he freely admits It could be a psycho thing as tramadol hasn't worked btw anyone used tramadol, I've got some for the dogs prostate and there a couple that could go missing......

Ok I'll rephrase - they have a minor effect on pain and there's a reason they are recommended for 'mild to moderate' pain. Not least being all the side-effects, including increased bleeding.

Perhaps you just need to actually rest your ankle WWS?

Yeah, rest your ankle ww&s.

Bullshit.
What is mild to someone is moderate (or worse) to someone else.
Bleeding? Are you female?

My favourite NSAID is now voltaren. Depending on which injury I'm suffering from it can remove all pain where nurofen doesn't. I don't understand it, but I know it works often when nurofen doesn't and that's all i need to know.

The best way forward is to establish a close friendship with a dodgy GP. 400mg ibuprofins are great, but 5mg endones are much better

I did. But the christmas test match only went for 2 days. I have only walked about 15km today crag searching. And I suppose walking mary and claude total 5km. I carried my 30 box of cans home in shoes not thongs. By the way its ankles, plural.

M9 claude will not go without.

Citationx I will have another go with voltanen plus, if it works for andrew gazes back it must be good.

Hear you eduardo but I,m so far not pinching tremadol or getting endone (isn't a gp who gives you endone a good one rather than dodgy?) As I want to do shit. I'd hillbilly heroin and bong on to my hearts content otherwise.

I've had my share of inflammation. For your general run of the mill inflammation, Codeine plus Ibuprofen. Just pain - panadeine extra (15mg codeine plus 500 g paracetamol). But the last 2 years I've been on and off 15mg Mobic (meloxicam). One a day. Work really well. For best results, try cortisone. I had one last may and went from pain to train in 48 hours. Until I twinged it again 6 weeks later. Now I've just had my third cortisone shot in 9 months in the sheath of my left Achilles tendon last Thursday. I think it's time to rehab properly and rebuild properly before the next attempt. Take the advice of Useful and M9.
My name's not The Gymp for nothing.

Sounds familiar to my visits to chemists-

Me: "Umm hi, so I have some sort of mumble mumble recurring pain in my something something old head ache, I think something called Mersyndol is what I need........"
Cute Nerdy Pharmacy chic: "Sure so have you taken codeine and doxylamine before?
Me: "Umm just once or twice when I dislocated my headache last year, Why!!???
Hot Pharmacy Chic with Lesbian Librarian Glasses: "Would you like the cheaper Chemist's Own brand?
Me: "What No! Why? Yes! What are you suggesting??? 48 tablets please!"
S&M Chemist Mistress: "Is there anything else I can help you with?"
Me: "Just some Metamucil please"

Bugger the prolasped disks, tell me more about the hot gothic chemist with Buddy Holly glasses. Is she wear stockings or latex?

No major lump. A very small bump and minor thickening of the tendon but according to scans it looks pretty good. Just for some reason I have inflammation of the sheath. Probably due to structural problems relating to smashing up that ankle 16 years ago (ligaments only) and now it flops around a bit. It also might have to do with having reached 86kg a while ago on legs that make Miss Prissy look like Tom Platz.
