I was prescribed dihydrocodiene/paracetamol 30/500 for a back problem some 3 months ago I had been taking co-proxamol to control the pain prior to this . After a severe reacurrence of my back problem I was prescribed the combination of voltarol and dihydrocodeine 30mg I found this had little effect on the pain and took it upon myself to take 4 tablets at a time instead of the 2. I now find myself totally hooked on the dihydrocodeine, have tried to stop taking them but after a day I start to feel like I have the flu and have uncontrollable bowel movements. I feel trapped. I now find myself lieing to my GP about the severity of my back problems to secure further tablets Beware if you have an addictive nature like me. Cannot really seem to find a way to stop as cutting down makes me feel as if I am having panic attacks.
