Hi I’ve decided to quit codeine and morphine. I started to take it following an operation that went wrong, but after not being in pain I was still taking it as I liked the feeling it gave me and blocked out my depression it’s now a year down the line and I was still taking it, I decided 5 days ago it quit cold turkey and it’s been hell I can’t sleep I feel sick, sweating, restless legs and most of all I feel like I want to kill myself. I had tried before to taper down when to see the doctor it nether worked! Please is there anyone who can give me advice I can’t take not sleeping and just want this thing over and done with! The first few days I stopped the codeine and morphine I took two tramadol for the first two days to help with withdrawal but didn’t take any yesterday so this is day two with no tramadol and day 5 now of no codeine and morphine. I feel so depressed! Is there anyone who knows how long this lasts and when will I be able to sleep and function normally? I went to a&e yesterday but they was no help, I see my mental health team the they prescribed me lorazepam 1mg for a week. Any advice will be much appreciated thanks
