Hi folks , I've been on codiene phosphate 180mg a day for 4 years. Not by choice but because of different things, child birth, stairs, falling over and IBS I've needed it for pain relief. Now the doctors haven't taken me off it, soooo I went to the doctors this morning and asked to be taken off it, that was scary, because admittedly I like how the codiene makes me feel but I know I need to come off it.
I'm usually on 60mg 3 times a day of codiene and at night I take 4 sleeping tablets too.
The nurse practitioner has reduced my codiene to 30mg 3 times a day and completely stopped my. sleeping tablets. This is the case for 1 week then I gave to go back every week for about 16.
In place of my sleeping tablets she has given me mirtazipine. I've never heard of it until today and I'm quite scared of how it's going to make me feel.
I'm at work tomorrow 11-5, mcdonalds and I'm not sure what time to take my mirtazipine tonight as I don't know how I'll feel tomorrow.
Any info on how this has made people feel please let me know.
