I have recently been prescribed slow release dihydracodiene in addition to the other pain meds I am on. I also have the immediate effect ones for breakthrough pain. I have taken 4 of the slow release so far so I know it is early days and I have nothing planned until Wednesday in the hope I will have got a bit used to them and how they affect me.
Can anyone give me some idea of when the tiredness and nausea are likely to stop? The difference they have made to my pain is huge, it is now at a bearable level which is fantastic, but I just want to sleep all the time, which is not so good. I really don't want to stop taking them but I would like to know when I am likely to be safe to drive again as I have more medical appointments his week and my OH isn't always around to take me.
Thanks in advance, Linda.
