    they will help to take the edge off if you have gone without for 7 days. i am 10 years into this addiction, taking up to 70 a day. i feel for you. you are over the intial stage but its all in the strength of mind now. i know its pure hell. if i run out i do a cold water extraction with paramol, which gives you 8 tablets from a 32 box. good luck james.

    hi JamesI was on DHC for 8 years I was taking 70 a day on my last year. I no what your going through. I did some ressearch and found out about a drug from America called duloxotien. This drug stops all the withdrawal symptoms it was amazing that'swhat they use in America. It also helps with depression and anxiety as it's all connected to the same part of the brain just go talk tI your doctor about it. or there is another way CWE and there Iis a drug on the market that u can buy over the counter containing DHC. but I recommend the duloxotien pal as well good luck hun

    30 per day it's a miracle your still with us James 8/500 too much paracetamol in them if you abuse these highly you'll do yourself damage go to gp come up with a gradual decrease usually they start at 8 x 30 mg per day the drop 1 tablet per month get rid of co codamol its phosphate codeine in these which is no match to dhc good luck
