I've just been given these but haven't started them yet. I have osteoarthritis and 24 hour a day excruciating pain in spine, knee and thumbs.
I have tried everything possible, which doesn't interact with Warfarin, and now just take Co codamol (paracetamol/codeine 30 mgs) a day, which do nothing as I've been taking them for so many years, and a sip of Oramorph, with them when I can't take the pain any more.
I did ask before, but think I've written on the wrong discussion - sorry, feel a bit lost at the moment.
I don't feel old enough to give up, but live alone now, and one of my only pleasures is a glass of wine with my dinner. I can take or leave alcohol generally, never drink spirits or anything, but do enjoy this one indulgence - look forward to it. Don't have much else to look forward to any more, only more pain.
Has anyone ever had a glass of wine with these patches ? I'd be really interested to know before I start them what the effects were if anybody knows.
I know it sounds awful putting so much importance on a glass of wine, but without that with my dinner, I don't think I'd bother to eat - it's my one guilty pleasure !
I can't ask a professional as they will obviously say NO !!!
Thank you anyone who can help with my dilemma.
