    Hello,

    right, as you are aware i don't know what type i am yet. but i take novorapid 10ml with every meal now and Lantus 10ml before bed, (first night tonight, quite excited to see if there is a drop in the morning!!!)

    Thing is Painkillers? i have read all the stuff and it says ibuprofn is a no no but every painkiller i pick up seems to say that it's a bad idea to take with insulin.

    it is just the manufactors covering themselves or is there really an issue. Banging headache at the minute and need some relief!

    help? :D

    What do you need the painkillers for?

    banging headache. Think it is all the rushing around seeing the docs and getting to work. Plus the glorious sunshine over here today, would love to just go jump in the sea and cool down.

    Paracetamol.Have you discussed the use of painkillers with your GP/nurse? I'm sure there are some you can use with insulin.What say the insulin users on here?
