Hi guys, i've been on Cocodamol 30/500 for around 25 years for knee arthritis. Now have had replacement surgery and no more pain so decided to come off these painkillers cold turkey. I had tried once before just to test how easy it was.... It wasn't.....This time however many years later I have been taking Amitryptilene 20 mgs at night originally for neuropathic pain relief and to help me sleep...Having gone cold turkey ten days ago it wasn't so bad, the antidepressant was well in my system and really helped with the withdrawal moodwise...Still had the runs though and flu like symptoms plus difficulty sleeping, so have been taking an anti spasmodic for my bowels and sudafed for the flu symptoms, all in all well pleased that it wasn't so difficult and was manageable with help from other temperary meds...Hope this may help others..
