I'll try and keep it succinct. After years of taking co-codemol for genuine back pain I've moved up the tolerance and strength ladder and now I take dihyrocodiene. I'm sick and tired of the cycle. Long gone are the days it's an enjoyable drug. It's survival now. I need them not to feel like total s**t- I say this because even taking them I feel like s**t. If anyone could tell me the best way to tiltrate I'd be really grateful. I get a prescription of 60 every week, and at the moment I tend to have the first 2 days at a dose of 20 then spend the last 5 days hopelessly trying to make the 20 last snd being in a state of withdrawal. Last week I took too many and have had none since yesterday morning, so last night I didn't sleep, I have severe tummy cramps and runs, no energy etc. I pick up a prescription later and I'm wondering how to go about it to make it as painfree- and thus achievable as possible. If I can 'manage' the withdrawal symptoms, I will do it as I've had enough.
Am I better taking each days 8 tablets I should be taking in 1 hit? Splitting? What will give me energy enough to get through the day? It's the days I struggle with the most, as I just can't function and sometimes even struggle to get off the sofa.
Thanks in advance for the help. I'm not a bad person, without boring everyone opiates fill a very real and emotional hole left by a bad childhood. The first time I felt ok in my life was the first time I took them. Oh the irony!
