Brief Answer: Diclofenac and tramadol are other options Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. In caee if you are allergic to the given drug then in first place your doctor should never have prescribed you this drug. Diclofenac and tramadol are good options for pain killers which act by different mechanisms . They are both available in oral as well as injectable forms. Regarding the prescription, health care magic being an online forum I wont be able to prescribe you online with physically examining you. Further while you are undercare of a doctor you should always keep informed your primary treating doctor. May be you can discuss these two drugs with your doctor. Furthet regarding your cannabis fo sleep, you need it cauee every night you hqve withdrawal of cannabis and that causes sleep problems. You will certainly need some hypnotic for few days until the withdrawa of cannabis settles down. Chlordiazepoxide or clonazepam could be good options. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback. In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link: Wish you good health, Kind regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy M.D.
