Just read about this. Could be something to avoid.

Good of you to bring it to peoples' attention. I wasn't aware of it, but thanks anyway.

Doctors can still prescribe it - even to Northern Europeans (it's not just Brits that are affected).

However, pharmacies should NOT sell it unless via a prescription. That said, I know some that do!

In my experience, many pharmacists have more knowledge of medications than most doctors. The one I go to in Benijofar is particularly good.

I don't know if they have more knowledge but I agree that they are excellent - and more accessible.

The real problem here is with pharmacies selling prescription drugs on demand over the counter!

That really is not a problem for me. I would not take any drugs whether prescribed or not without understanding what they were, what the side effects may be and why I was taking them.

The over prescribing of prescription meds by doctors is a concern to me.

Total bollox and false news LOL

Although there are no conclusive studies, many health specialists suspect people from Northern Europe including those of British origin are more at risk to metamizole than people from Spain.

I'd like to see more clinical evidence on this drug. The problem painkiller in the UK is Tramadol and a lot of GPs still give long term prescriptions to patients and a lot of patients develop problems. Tramadol is very addictive.

Hmmm. Been on it for 9 months now - heavy dosage after back operation.

Nothing else works. The alternative, they say, is morphine. What can one do?

What you don't do is take advice from social media, because everyone has a different opinion/story/experience

You've obviously tried many different medications to keep your pain under control, and you and your doctor have determined that Tramadol is what works for you. By all means discuss any concerns you have about the drug with your doctor, and I'm sure you've already done that. But in the absence of any compelling reason to do differently, if my choice was between taking a prescribed medication that I'd discussed with my doctor and I'd been on for 9 months without any side-effects, or being in constant pain and unable to enjoy life, I know which choice I'd make!

Best of luck, severe pain is a bugger of a thing and affects every part of your life - I hope yours resolves soon.
