'I've had no problems with co-proxamol'

I have been a GP for more than 40 years. I have not seen anybody complaining of the side-effects of co-proxamol. Only one patient has developed an addiction out of many hundred of prescriptions I must have issued

My patients who have been on co-proxamol for several years have sworn of its efficacy and not overused it. They have found it difficult to control pain with other drugs.

I totally agree with Dr Howard Stoate (Opinion, 6 September) and offer my full support for co-proxamol to be available on prescription.

From Dr Narendra Singh, Burnley, Lancashire
