I was prescribed pain killers yesterday Codine Phosphate. I have never taken anything stronger than Paracetamol. Took two in the morning and two at teatime. After a night dreaming of being in a house full of Temporal Anomalies I cant wait for tonight's episode.
Not taken the ones you mention keef,but years ago had a bad toothache in the night and out of desperation took some of my OH's painkillers that she had after a major operation,next thing i remember was waking up on the bathroom floor!!
How much you taking, 60 mg (2 x 30mg) ? They can produce a feeling of Euphoria and give you some crazy dreams. Beware, they will give you chronic and I mean chronic constipation if taken regularly. They're also addictive, so only take on prescription and for a short course. Having said that, I have taken them daily for oooh eight years?
I have the weirdest reaction to anything with codeine. I look like I've been painted red. Seriously, although it does away with pain, I have an immediate allergic reaction that has me itching from head to toe and my skin changes to a freshly sunburnt look. Then again, I am also freakishly allergic to caffeine so Anadin is out as well. With that, I get the weirdest migraine (all sparkly-lighted aura but no subsequent headache! Steer-range or what?) it's possible to imagine. Neurofen gives me vertigo and out-of-body balance issues. On balance, I'd rather have the pain than the after-effects of the pain-killer so I never take any. Anyone who weakens to that extent and eats pain-killers like they're big girl's blouses, is a big girl's blouse.
After my big collision I was on a cocktail of three pain killers for a couple of weeks, I've never been so happy - well except in A&E when they dosed me up with Morphine, despite multiple breaks and leaking claret from several places I was eyeing up the nurses.
