Advice & Tips: I've found that other brands of paracetamol and codeine do not effectively work. I did some research and found Tylex had different properties to it and that when taking the Tylex I found they worked, the are the same strength 500/30 as other brands, but I know for sure that I've had these and they work. My sister and cousin who also have Lupus also found the same thing, other brands that were normally prescribed did not have any effect on pain relief, but Tylex did. You have to insist that your GP provides this and quote that other patients have advised that they have noticed because of the Lupus that Tylex has been more effective with pain relief. They are a more expensive brand hence why they're not just prescribed.
