Late Tuesday I'd ran out of codeine tablets for my back. So I took 2solpadeine Max and 5 Nurofen plus every two hours all day. By evening I had chest pain and was white in complexion. I had to dial 999 as I thought I was going to die. The hospital were vey good. I was immediately put on an antidote for the 16 Solpadeine Max I'd taken and ecgs and bloods taken
To my surprise the blood testswere normal except potassium and vitamins which I also had IV. The first 2 nights I wasn't on the planet and was convinced I'd been left to die. In total I took 30 Nurofen plus.and 16 Solpadeine Max. I was in hospital for 4 days and had to go cold turkey. The diorheoa was horrendous during my withdrawal. It wasn't until Friday the nurses thought I looked normal again. Anyway I saw the psychiatric team on Saturday morning and they were happy to discharge me.
This was the scariest episode I've ever had. But I've started to take codeine tablets again for my back pain. Just hope I don't run out before my next prescription
