I'm 24 yrs old and for about 2 years I've had problems taking pain killers it initially started with me taking my Granddads pain medication Co-codamol 30/500, I then discovered that tramadol was a pain med and started to take these instead of the cocodamol, I started work as a health care assistant and was prescribed Dihydrocodiene 30mg which I gradually increased myself, I went to my G.P. And told her I was dependant on Dihydrocodiene and she prescribed me 120mg of Dihydrocodiene and amytripiline.
I have now found myself taking 5-6 Dihydrocodiene in the evening in the space of 4 hours. I have 2 children and would really love another 1 but my periods have stopped I don't know the reason for this but feel it could be down to the painkillers I take. I'm wanting to withdraw myself off them how long would it take if I go cold turkey or is it better to gradually reduce my intake ?
