  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Drink a lot of water during the day, and get some exercise to avoid the constipation that comes with this medication. No water = hideous constipation. I've actually been impacted before! I'm taking an obscene amount: 100 mg three times a day. But I don't have to take prednisone at the moment, and it is working well.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Chest pain on left side: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Psychosis Disorder: None
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Weaning off finished: took my last with evening meal. Can never have it again, has sent me round the bend well and truly. To be replaced tomorrow with paracetamol indefinitely: seems all I can take.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Chest pain on left side: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Psychosis Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Psychiatrist yesterday ordered rapid weaning off due to dysphoria, worsened tardive dyskinesia. Had already begun when dysphoria first reported on Monday (3 to 2 tablets). Suicidal. So now only on 1 tablet a day (evening meal) for 3 or 4 days, then replace with 8 paracetamol per day. Codeine preparations make me severely psychotic and paranoid, ibuprofen worsens chronic gastritis: is only analgesia available. Less powerful: let's hope it stops the severe chest pain left side and centrally, and emergency calls.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Chest pain on left side: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Duty doctor reinstated it due to 12 hours of severe disabling chest pain on left which paracetamol didn't affect. Removed pain within 90 minutes so giving it another go. Liver function blood test today to confirm duty Dr's diagnosis of liver damage or not. Will have to re-evaluate treatment depending on result. So far no significant side effects apart from minor gastric distress: had two doses, pain gone.
