So glad those suggestions helped. The sheepskin suggestion was from someone else in here so I passed it on as helped me too! Ps I think it is ok to have that dose of co codamol 4 hours apart so one taken before bed and one at night if you wake up in the early hours and need it might be enough. I now have one emergency codeine pill left but have been using the co codamol if I really have to. Most of the time, if at all, I use paracetemol only. I think Josephine did say that medication was sometimes needed beyond 6 weeks so you are in very early days re medication!
