Hi. Thanks for your question. I will be happy to help. Do you know the dosages of the medications you are taking?
It certainly is possible it could be more than just a pulled muscle. There is a chance that there could be a pinched nerve in your neck as well. However, typically the management would be conservative as long as there are no "red flags" when a doctor examines and takes a full history.
If you know the doses of your medications, that will be helpful to give you some guidance regarding the medications.
Did the prescription say you could take up to 2 of the cocodamol per dose, meaning each time you take the medication?
As far as the Ibuprofen goes, there is not very high risk with that dosage. Stomach irritation and ulcer formation would be the main concern, and you may not want to take more than a week or 2 without discussing this with your doctor. However, again you are not taking a high dose of the ibuprofen at this time.
OK. It certainly is a high dose of Codeine (the 30mg component of cocodamol). You are also at a maximum dose of the paracetamol. If the pain is severe and not getting better in the near future, you should talk to your GP.
Sometimes antiinflammatory steroid medications can help with these types of issues, and you might benefit from some physical therapy as well.
Given the frequent use and high dose of the cocodamol that you are taking, I think your doctor should at least be aware that you have been taking this and that the pain is not getting better.
Please let me know if you have more questions. If this has been helpful, make sure to rate me highly! Bonuses always appreciated.
