What medication should be taken for immune system disorder?

Hi I have a close friend who has an immune system disorder! is in early 20 s and has an immune disorder where she suffers from pain in her stomach. Her doc advised he has been exposed over the years to chemicals where she was living and has to do a total detox. She will do this in another couple of months but is studying and is unsure what she can take now. Her doc prescribed codeine and paracetamol but only worked for a while. Suggestions on what she can buy over the counter would be good as she is in a lot of pain. Thanks

Hello,

The appropriate management of pain depends on the nature of the underlying disorder and the effective management of the underlying disorder. So, it is not the appropriate choice to use over the counter pain medication alone without knowing the complete details of the autoimmune disorder. For now, continue the codeine-paracetamol combination prescribed and follow up with your provider for appropriate management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lekshmi Rita Venugopal, General & Family Physician
