Have you contacted your doctor to discuss an alternative?

Lentogesic contained Dextropropoxyphene and Paracetamol, it is a mild narcotic analgesic and it was removed from the market due to the fact that Dextropoxyphene and its derivatives have been shown to be cardiotoxic.

And, as with any medication, even if you aren't abusing it, your body does get used to having it and a sudden cessation may cause withdrawal symptoms and rebound pain.



There are, however, other medications on the market that you can try, but only your doctor can help you decide which ones are safe for you.

Verwon Says:

Tina, what else have you tried?

There are other combinations on the market that have narcotics, coupled with Acetaminophen, which may help.

Some of the options you can look into are Percocet and Vicodin:

Yes really nothing else works, can see with my husband as well, the tremesat that they said will help help nothing at all, he is at a point where he can't deal with the pain anymore and is also telling me that he is going to take his life. It is very scarce here by us in Port Elizabeth.
