Hello, I have been taking 2 tablets (10mg each) of codeine every 6 hours for a long while. Recently the pain has gotten worse and the doctor only allowed me to go up by 5mg because I am only 15. He told me that I am only allowed to use it every 4 hours and not to exceed more then 8 a day. I have a school camp in 3 weeks which goes for 5 days. I plan on taking the 15 mg every 4-6 hours for the five days. Im still struggling to find the balance however with the pain and constipation. I take 2 coloxyl (stool softener) tablets every night and 1 movicol sachet (gentle laxative) every second day. Will this be enough to keep my stool okay and not get severely constipated? What are some of your suggestions while taking 15 mg of codeine? Is it safe to use it for 5 days straight? xx
