Distalgesic the only one that works.
I am fighting 6 diseases including Parkinsons disease and osteoarthritis of the spine, hips, and knees. I used this drug for years before it was unlicenced and now i have more pain than before i cannot get it. It really was the only painkiller that helped. I know some people find it makes them drowsey that may be the opiate in it but that same effect also acts as a muscle relaxer and that relieved my pain. Not all bad for all people
