    You’ve been only been taking it a month so shouldn’t experience any drastic withdrawals but it depends how much you’ve been taking. You might have a bit of a headache and potentially an upset tummy and maybe some cold like symptoms. But because of the amount of time you’ve been taking them, this should only last a couple of days at most. Hope this helps smile

    I agree with sparkamarka!!! You may have a headache, upset tummy and mild cold and flu symptoms but you won’t have any major withdrawals (if you have only been taking a couple a day) 😊

    Rachel, how many tablets have you been asking and how many times per day and what strength? I take 30/500 tablets and am prescribed 2 tablets up to four times per day (though I usually only take twice per day) I have been prescribed them for 10 years for chronic widespread pain.  This last year I have 3 times had to stop taking them for 5 days because of surgical procedures and I can honestly say I did not suffer from any withdrawal symptoms. I am quite sure that if you have only been taking them a short time, and only missed one dose, you will not get withdrawal symptoms unless you are very unfortunate.
