Im addicted to dihydrocodeine/codeine

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi im AJ im 27 and addicted to dihydrocodeine. Ive been taking it for about 3 years. At first all i had to take was two 30mg tablets and was buzzing lol. Times have changed i soon built a tolerance to it and now i take about 13 in one go twice a day. Ive now started to buy off different websites as ive easily gone thru my 4 week prescription in a week n a half. I think ive only been taking 13 in about 6 months but cant be sure. Ive also brought codeine off these website which i understand that the daily limit is about 100mg less that DHC so codeine 240mg and Dihydrocodeine 340anyone know why? I dont mix the both tho. Shouldve started with this but i also have fibromyalgia and artritis and two loose knee caps due to muscles breaking down which is why these two drugs play a major roll in helping me with physio and exercise to get back to the person i was. I was very stocky and big for my short size but now ive completly disintegratesad. Anyone help me here? Peace AJ

    Hi Alex. I was taking 10 at a time up to 6/7 times a day over a 10 year period. When I eventually ran out of resources I experienced the worst living hell you could possibly imagine. Trust me mate the only way out of this is to ask your g.p. to refer you to spectrum. Once there they will give you subutex which believe me is amazing. It cancels out the craving for dihydrocodeine and it makes you feel good. This happens instantly. It's like a miracle cure. The withdrawal from codeine can kill you if you suddenly stop. And if it doesn't it will take you to hell. You need to trust me on this mate. Good luck Yea.

      I also have fibromyalgia as well as other problems but the subutex is a pain reliever so it's all good
