Remember, your final treatment will be decided by our prescribers based on your answers provided within your consultation. You will be asked to indicate a preferred treatment option from a selected list after completion of your consult.
The way your pain relief medication will work will depend on the type of medicine it is.
For example, NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) like ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin can help to not just ease your pain but reduce swelling and inflammation if you’re dealing with muscular or joint problems. They can also be used to bring down a fever in cold and flu patients.
On the other hand, opiate painkillers like codeine and morphine keep your nervous system from transmitting pain signals around your body, effectively blocking the pain.
Unfortunately, these types of painkillers can cause addiction, meaning that you’ll need to stop taking them slowly over a long period of time when it’s time to end your treatment.
Start a consultation with our prescribers and you’ll be asked a few quick questions that will give them the information they need to determine whether prescription pain relief medication could be right for you.
If they write you a prescription, our pharmacy team will fulfil it and send it out to you quickly and in discreet, plain packaging.
