Q.

NEUROPATHY

Hi
My wife is diabetic, she suffers from neuropathy, takes lyrica for healing .
She also takes lentogesic for the pain, twice a day, for last 5 years.
Lentogesic has been taken off the market.
Can she take Synaleve?

Dear Malcolm

Synaleve contains paracetamol, codeine and meprobamate, and can be used for her pain, but shouldn’t be used on a long term basis. If her pain is such that she needs it on a long term basis, then she should consult a neurologist to look at other options

Hi, I have a family memmber that drinks at least 20 Synaleve capsules a day is that safe?

When you drink more than the manufaturers maximum allowable dosage of 08 per day, does the addittional capsules taken help in any way with the pain or is just habitial after that?
