Hello guys, I did see a thread about Co codamol discussion but it wouldn't let me reply. I have never spoken to anybody about this so this feels refreshing.
I have a bit of a cocodamol addiction. I take the 30/500mg tablets, but I have never been prescribed them. It's a bit naughty, but my dad takes them for his atheritis (spelling) so I take his. He does get plenty and if he's on his last pack I will never take any, as he needs them a hell of a lot more than me and that would just be really cruel. I have taken them for roughly 10 years. I have always had physical jobs, so it started one day when I was really aching, and my dad said take a couple of these you'll be right as rain. And of course I got a buzz and it made me in the mood for work, and it started from their. I wouldn't say I depend on them, as the max I take in 1 day is 2, on the odd occasion I have taken 3 in 1 day, but I have never exceeded that amount. Just recently I have been for a chest xray and it showed up I have swollen lymph nodes therefore I am waiting for a ct scan, my gp sent me for blood tests too to check my liver and kidneys which I am waiting on the results. The reason I have come out of the closet today is the lymph nodes have really frightened me, and I'm scared the blood tests will show some damage to my liver or kidneys. Could just taken 1-2 tablets a day have major effect on my body? I haven't taken them everyday for the last 10 years, but in the majority of days I have. Thanks
