Since my last post two weeks ago I have managed to stick with 8 co/codomol 30/500 a day (prescribed)I have reduced my over the counter ibuprofen and codeine from 25 to 17. Tomorrow I move down to 16. I try to reduce every couple of days. However yesterday my anxiety and panic attacks were so bad I thought I was having a heart attack and actually dialled 999. The lady at the ambulance service asked me loads of questions and from where the pains were, she decided it wasn't life threatening so just told me to attend A&E within the hour to be checked over. She was glad that I phoned though. However I did fall asleep at 6pm last night so never attended and never woke until 7.30 this morning. As I hadn't had my daily dose of codeine yesterday I awoke with the most terrible withdrawal syptoms. The bed cloths were soaked and I was in pain and shaking until my first dose of two co/codomol 30/500 and two ibuprofen and codeine. I just want to continue with my reduction until I am taking co/codomol 30/500, for my back pain at the usual dosage of 8 tablets per day. Then battle it from there!
