I'm in defence of dihydrocodeine being used as a painkiller. I suffer from arthritic pain which is agony most of the time and I have taken the above drug for many years with some success. Sometimes in combination with other painkillers; but lately I was tranfered to Morphine thinking this will stop all the pain; was I never so wrong. Morphine was troublesome to say the least with it's powerful addicting properties; after three months I requested I be put back on Dhy' and was never so grateful. These opioids may help some, but boy! did they scare me with the side effects they produce. In future I'll take the Dhy' as prescribed and appreciate the fact I'm never going to suffer such effects again.
