I've called my GP and am waiting to hear back from her.

I was running done the stairs yesterday morning, slipped and fell hard onto my side. I've had x-rays and nothing is broken but I'm in quite a lot of pain.

Anyway, my GP prescribed Endone which has done wonders for the pain, however, last night I didn't get to sleep til 2am and I swear I've had a headache since taking it? I'm also feeling weird, like mania or something yet I feel and look exhausted. I took 7.5mg yesterday and I've only had one 5mg tab today.  

Anyone else have this experience?

Firstly I want to start by saying it is important you speak to your GP...which from your post I see you are awaiting a call back.

I have not had the experience with Endone...but with Tramadol. I get a psychoactive response to it which is not very pleasant and why my GP has indicated to list it as an allergy.

Endone is an opioid so not surprised you are having this reaction. Stop taking them and try some neurofen plus or go back to the GP for an alternative

Me I have no troubles with end one, but then again 2xpanedine forte don't space me out nor an injection of morpheine.

Google the fact sheet for it, they are all online. Endone made me sleepy for the first five days I had it then made me wide awake for the next three days. I was only on it that long due to surgeons advice. It affects people differently.

I've had to ask to be taken of endone after my cs.  Wow! I was wired like nothing else I'd ever experienced.  I was awake for two days and hallucinating.  I'd go to sleep but jerk awake in a panic and sweat almost straight away.  It also seemed to distract me from the pain rather than get rid of it.  
Tramadol was much better although I was slightly off my face with that, I could sleep and the sweats stopped.

Definitely speak to you GP.

But it seems you might be better suited to Tramadol which isn't as strong as Endone. And combine it with an anti-inflammatory such as voltaren.

I'd steer clear of Tramadol if you get that reaction from Endone. Tramadol is known for more side effects IMO.

Tramal has bad effects for me too, GP has also listed it as an allergy even though it isn't actually an allergy as such.

There's so many different side effects you can get from it. I've taken so many stupid painkillers that the most it does to me now is make me slightly drowsy but energetic at the same time (maybe just coz I'm not in pain?) and I talk a lot and get very thirsty.

If you can't get onto your GP consider even calling a pharmacist for some advice until you hear from your GP.

Sorry to hear that it's giving such nasty side effects OP

All I can suggest (as others have) is try something different and don't forget to take regular paracetamol and some form of anti inflammatory as well.

Yes! This is exactly what it's doing to me.

Thanks for all your replies. My GP and has left a script of panadeine forte for me to pick up.

Can't believe I fell down the stairs, I've got a 2 year old to care for and so much stuff to do before Christmas. At least my shopping is done. sad.gif

Also, OP, make sure you're assertive about this.  I had nausea for a few days after having it for my first c-section and a toothache, when I went in for my second c-section I told the doctor at my pre-med that I was allergic, he said it was up the anaethesist what post-op painkillers I'd get.  On the day after the op the staff pressured me into having a dose to get me 'up and about', I made it in and out of the shower and was then bedridden and vomiting for the next 24 hours (they were very apologetic, put something in the drip, then tried to inject me with something to reverse the effect but to no avail).  

Hopefully that was a one-off experience in my case and that medical professionals don't pressure people and disregard what a patient says as a matter of course sad.gif
