Subject: Maxitram

Hi me again, I asked my doc for a stronger painkiller as all I had been taking was co-codamol normal strength, and he prescribed Maxitram, when I opened the box there was no leaflet to read and I have never heard of them so have not taken any yet, has any one else heard of them?

No Jenny, I wldnt either, ask for a form to read about them b4 taking them...that is wrong, the leaflet shoulda een in there... not heard of Maxitram, mb they r like Tramadol, bu8t u need to read about side affects...alll i do want to say is....if u do feel extra tired or a little strange, keep on taking them until ya body gets used to them, as with all meds, we feel funny at first, dont give up, many people give up taking a Good painkiller becos they feel a bit off it, keep with it, it will get U thry, I dont Know how on earth U have coped with HIP pain just on Co Cod..... blimey, u must have amazing pain threshold!!!.... im on Opiates and still get pain...... anyway take care ok xxxxxxxxx

Yes I thought it was wrong that there was no leaflet, I try not to take painkillers unless I really have to, don't like taking them. Think I will complain at the chemist bout no leaflet and get one. I think the best pain relief I have is my wheat bag that I heat in the microwave, seems to help more than the pills.

Hi Jenny, If you put maxitram into your search engine you will see you can access a patient leaflet all about it.Save you going back to chemist.
Hope this helps.
