Not the best: Your current treatment program is not the most effective way of handling migraine headaches, and accelerating use of analgesics is often followed by the pattern of chronic daily headaches. If you wish to prevent headaches and control when they do occur, see a neurologist, as the best abortive is a triptan, and there are many preventative meds.

What to do if I discovered boots ibuprofen/codeine 200/12.8mg which gives 25.6mg overall each dosage. Is there any better?

What to do if I discovered boots ibuprofen/codeine 200/12.8mg which gives 25.6mg overall each dosage. Is there any better?

You misunderstand: Ibuprofen/ Codeine 200/12.8 is not a fraction. It signifies a dose of 200 milligrams of ibuprofen together with 12.8 milligrams of codeine. A normal adult dose. If they were prescribed for you, take them as directed. If you found someone else's pills, get rid of them. Never take prescription pills belonging to someone else as they might do more harm than good.

I broke 3 ribs after fall on sunday. Prescribed codeine, paracetamol & ibuprofen. My abdomen is very swollen now. Is this normal?

I broke 3 ribs after fall on sunday. Prescribed codeine, paracetamol & ibuprofen. My abdomen is very swollen now. Is this normal?

It may be, but...: Broken ribs are very painful, and the medication you were Rx'd are common for the treatment. A fall that causes 3 fractured ribs was a serious fall though, so there is always the chance you sustained some other internal injuries. If the swelling is located over the rib fractures that is most likely normal...If the swelling is unrelated to the general area of fractures, then see a Doctor.
