I now have servere Arthrits and am considering taking it again. My question is, if I do take it again will the bad reaction subside with time? I'm a 69 year old female. I would really like to stop the pain without taking mophine if possible, thanks Jean
Hi, i think most people find they are effected by some side effects when first starting it. I experienced nausea and lethargy. I stuck with them to give it a chance to see if things improved and luckily they did. It took about 2 weeks until i was without side effect symptoms. I guess it depends on the individual, if you can live with the side effects until things get better? Otherwise there are other pain killers than just morphine. Dihydrocodeine, Volterol. Discuss this with your doctor. Also, just a warning, Tramadol can cause dependancy so please be careful.
