As you might have noted, I was a little pi**ed off about the dificulty in getting effective pain relief in the shape of acetyl-salicyl based medications (which work well on me) compared to the opiate stuff, which doesn’t really work well and also is said to be addictive. Now, I don’t think I can actually be addicted to the stupid stuff; I seem to have a built-in sort of antabuse function, but the thing is: after the first few doses, working normally, it just makes things worse. Aspirin (or Dispril, Disprin or whatever) always works.
So, as I said, here in Norway you can get these tablets at 24 a buy. Your doctor is supposed to ba able to prescribe larger amounts when indicated.
A couple of pictures:
Same procedure as always, to get the writing and assorted idiocy, click the pic.
As you can see, I eventually got a prescription, after much begging, for three times 24 tablets. I am evidently free to take a child’s dose 4 times a day (you will note on pic 2 that an adult, normal dose is 2-3 tablets 4 times a day). This is for a shattered shoulder with a steel plate.
So what is this stupidity? Random torture? Not-so-random torture?
Stay tuned. We’ll find out.
