  • Robert Honey on May, 7, 2012:

    At this time I take 1200mg of Ibuprofen 400mg, 240mg of Tramadol 50mg, 240mg of Codeine Phosphate 30mg and 4000mg of Paracetamol 500mg a day, Plus Omeprazole 20 mg x1, Levothyroxine 100mg,and Citalopram 30mg per day. My question, as I have been taking some of this pills (codeine and paracetamol and citalopram) for a year, is how well do they get on with each other? I am 58 years old, and suffer from a few problems, but at this time I get new problems, and when I ask my Doctor he says not to worry, everything is ok! Please if you could help me? Thank you.
