I am not able to take NSAIDs as I have had an ulcer since having gall bladder removed. I have a lot of pain in both my knees...I have had two meniscus tear ops...(one on each knee) but have arthritis in both knees. The Surgeon gave me morphine patches but GP horrified and said "No!!"...a few months ago he gave me Axsain Cream...however, it has relieved the pain a LITTLE bit...BUT I have had very sore eyes and feel most peculiar...light headed...and I am awake for a whole night about every two weeks...and I only ever have about 5/6 hours any other night....I think it's the Axsain. Has anyone else had similar side effects using it 3 times/day?
If anyone else has had the same problem....especially the insomnia I will contact the GP ...it is so difficult at the moment when you cannot see the GP!!
