Comment

sorry - rest of it not pasting - basically no evidence it works in sciatic pain anyway, co-codamol and ibuprofen as effective as morphine, i don't prescribe it any more for sciatica like pain, may help in diabetic neuropathy, avoid with opiods, it is a popular drug of abuse now so beware the not responding to treatment back pain who really needs the gaba!!!
