    Hi Clare,

    I’ve tried all the meds you’re taking and they don’t make any difference at all to my pain so I’m not really expecting nefopam to fix me but am going to try it. As it’s not an opioid that’s a bonus. Luckily my GP is very ready to prescribe me anything so fingers crossed. Will let you know!

    Take care x

    Ah thats great, that GP is flexible.
    Are you under pain consultant? they have access to wider range of treatments and medications.
    Re: Nefopam…i find it works well if i take it at same time as Ibuprofen. Not sure if you take any NSAIDs but if you do this might be worth a try.
    Yeah let us know how it goes.
    Im despairing a bit myself at the minute. I had 8 medial branch blocks last week, with no effect. I give up. You get hopeful again for nothing.

    Just an update…I got Nefopam from my GP 10 days ago, no trouble prescribing although my doctor hadn’t heard of it and had to look it up, but the chemist had to order it in for me.

    Unfortunately I haven’t had any pain relief from it, or any side effects, was hoping for a bit of sleepiness but didn’t get any! Was worth a go anyway, it might work for others.

    Hi Laura

    What a shame!
    Did they prescribe 60mg three times a day?
    Whats the plan now then?
    Ive just had to discontinue my Nefopam as they do not agree with the increased Pregabalin dose, was very nauseous.
    Hope you haven’t lost hope

    Hi Clare,

    There is no plan. I have been discharged from pain clinic etc. for some years and all my doctor suggested was physio & that’s the last thing that would help. My back pain has come back with a vengeance having been very stable pain-wise for about 6 years and when this is added to my leg pain I’m at a loss as to what to do with myself, not sleeping etc. Still, there’s plenty worse off than me.
