Hi, thanks for answering in Healthcare Magic.
Combination of Codeine with Paracetamol
or Aspirin is more effective than when given alone. Such a combination gives additional analgesia. Paracetamol is more effective for fever than for pain. Aceclofenac
, Ibuprofen or Ketorolac are better analgesics than Paracetamol. But these drugs are not specific for neuralgia
, is considered to be the first line drug in the treatment of nueralgias. Amitriptylline reduces neuropathic pain
by 50%. Gabapentin is more preferrable than Amitryptilline because it has fewer side effects compared to Amitryptilline.
Diazepam may not be effective in long standing insomnia (inability to sleep) due to pain. Measures like mental relaxation, avoiding napping at day ti,me avoiding stimulants all may be more helpful to you.Newer drugs like Zaleplon will be more effective.
I hope this is useful to you.
