Hi,

My doctor wanted to rotate my pain killers to try something other than Targin. The pain specialist recommended Palexia - after a week on 100mg she prescribed 200mg after i reported the100 having no effect. Anyway 3 days of 200mg and I do not get any relief at all, then I take 2x 5mg endone for break through and pain is relieved, obviously that's not lasting so i need more later.

So I experimented today and took 300mg of Palexia (a 100mg and a 200mg together in one dose) and it still has no detectable effect on me, absolutely nothing - I have the same pain as if I did not medicate, and no side effects observed either.

Its as if the pills are a placebo.

Anyone else had such a distinct absence of effect from taking Palexia ?

Thanks!

Hi Jabjo ,
I’ve never taken palexia, I have heard some people say they don’t get good relief from it, others great results. Time to talk to your GP and see what else he can offer. As taking more than prescribed dose is not a great idea long term.

All the best
Vicki :)

Plus 1 for Vicki's comment. I know someone who is taking Palexia and it works wonders for them.

If it isn't, definitely see your GP or specialist.

I was on Palexia for awhile, I got great physical pain relief but I had a lot of mental side effects. I put up with the side effects
