OTC Codeine addiction. www.codeinefree.me.uk
iv been hooked on codine for around 5 years first given by my dr went to prison were for back pain everyone knew the dr would give 120 mg slow release codine after a while i was taking 6 to 8 a day when i got out of jail saw a new dr who put me on a reducing program but being a addict i always ran out to soon so i was buying OTC im now down to 0ne 120mg mornings and a 90mg evenings but my dr did blood tests and my liver is fucked and im really frightened im 43 with a wife and kids learn from me
mate i am reducing now i was on 6 120mg now im on 1 120mg mornings and a 90mg 12 hours later my point is i was using 30/500 then anything when i ran out just had blood test results and my liver is fucked im 43 with a wife and kids mate sort it out
Wow, I felt bad taking 5 Codene phosphate a day. I took them for the high in the mornings to get past the morning shitty feeling and last week realised that I cant deal with life without them. its been two days off them now, I get hot cold flushes and insomnia along with irritable arms and legs, i have to keep moving about in bed and its horrible. The only thing I found so far to help take the edge off it is cannabis. its ok thou as that I can take or leave so its not one addiction for another.
And people saying “go do real drugs” get fucked, I would go and shoot up heroine and shit like that, idiots do that. The problem with things like codeine is that it is given to you by a doctor, without real warning of long term use, you assume its ok to take and you end up getting fucked over by them. If someone came out and said “I got sick on heroine” i’d have no sympathy, because nowhere have I ever heard heroine was supposed to help you. It’s your own fault.
I was taking them all the time, for any reason, being a big guy, 6’4″, I though, ah! I normally have to take more than the normal dose to have an effect, so I was taking 4 tabs 5 times a day. Then it got to more. I found I feel really chilled out and happy when I was on my meds, it was kind of like morphine that I had in hospital, which I loved, and I suddenly thoughm shit, I need to stop. Going cold turkey now, from what I’ve read, I’ve got off lightly by catching it early.
I just realised I was starting to get addicted to codeine. I had issues with gall stones until this year when I got it removed. Everytime I ended up in hospital I was given 30days of cocodamol 30/500mg. Considering at one point I was in hospital in stays of 3-4 days every week for 4 months, thats a lot of codeine. Then the doc prescribed me 3 months worth in one go to “tide me over until my operation”. Then once my op was done, they prescribed me 3 months worth of tablets.
People who are going through withdrawal symptoms should go and buy some loperamide, it is the active ingredient in Immodium and many other brands of anti diarrhoea medicine. It helps with withdrawals as it binds to the same receptors as codeine does but it does not cross the blood brain barrier so you can’t get high off it. It is a good way to keep withdrawals at bay but a lot of doctors don’t know about it.
I am currently tapering from 30 30mg codeine phosphate, plus 10 30 mg dihydrocodeine a day. Which were prescribed. Now down to 13 30mg codeine phosphate a day. Hell is not even close.
i totally agree, this guy will be singing from a different song sheet when he’s hooked
WOW! that’s incredible. I didn’t know anyone could survive that amount. I wish you all the best in reducing mate
i don’t agree with what he said about it being ok if Doctors are prescribing you Codeine and taking it regularly under a doctors knowledge is ok. Some Doctors are totally irresponsible with powerful painkillers, i had a Doc give me 60 30 mil Codeine Phospate tablets!
Enough to develop a bad habit that could screw you for life.
I’m on codeine right now! And I’m loving it… Only bad point’s are a sore liver and shitting blood!!
your the real retard if you don’t think codeine is a real drug…so please tell me what a real drug is?
y’all are retarded go do a real drug
25 tabs a day? That’s a small amount for OTC codeine addiction. I know, I’m still trying to beat mine. I’ve reduced over a long time down from at least 72 Nurofen plus a day. Now I’m at about 30, at it’s hard to get lower
@hero99a its still a bitch to get of it. this guy is lucky that he did not move on to shit like oxys
you wont when you get addicted it sucks
Want my advice? DO NOT buy these drugs, if you’re in the amount of pain that you feel needs a stronger painkiller, PLEASE for the love of god see your DOCTOR, who is best equipped to advise and will be able to tell you of the RISKS associated with opiate pain releivers. If your doctor feels you need a codeine based drug, they have a duty to prescribe it responsably to best prevent addiction, and inform you on how to use it safely.
I Love Codeine
i seperated it from paracetamol….
i did it in his manner daily for 18 months…. cotton pillow cases are the ultimate filter. was bloody hard to quit. filtering takes about 20 mins…. if your an addict research how to do it. livers and kidneys are kinda important.
its oxycodone, oxycontin is a manufactures name
