Update on slow releasing Dihydrocodeine

Hi to everyone well it's day 3 on slow releasing dihydrocodeine and I really can't believe that my pain has gone. ( Happy days ) The only thing I find is that if I am on my feet for to long I start getting a twinge but other than that there is no pain what so ever. I have reduced my normal dihydrocodeine from 2 tablets to 1 and still take paracetamol with them. So the little combination of tablets are working really well. My sister has been on same for three weeks now and she has absolutely no pain other than the same as me a few twinges. Before the slow releasing Dihydrocodeine she could not walk the length of the house and if she did her legs would buckle and she would fall down. So after years of staying home she now can go out and have some quality of life. I am absolutely over the moon for her. I have severe spine pain,inflammation and fibromyalgia and it has helped with everything. Now what works for me and my sister I am not saying it would work for everyone but maybe you could consider trying them to see if they work for you it's definitely better than all these anti depression tablets I have tried them all and none of them were for me. Also morphine patches different painkillers just about everything that I could and none of them worked for me. This is the old way and maybe GPs should try giving them first to get people to get them out of pain. I kept fighting as I was determined not to live my life in PAIN. My sisteris is riddle with arthritis and it has also taken her pain away. Well that's my update and I will let you all know again in a couple of weeks. I truly wish you all as well as you can be. Sending lots off warm hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗xxxxx Jan

  • That's good news that it's working.

    I'm going to look through all the pain cupboard :D

  • Hi spider555 it would be good if you have some as I said they have made a massive difference to me and my sister. If you do have one let me know how you get on. I just don't understand why the GPs try all the antidepressants before you get some old-fashioned painkillers. Wishing you all the luck and take good care of yourself. Sending you warm hugs. 🤗🤗🤗xxx Jan

  • Doctors think it's depression or a good chunk of that. I think it's a nervous system and rheumatology problem together. Could be why there isn't a definite diagnosis.

  • Hello Jan, I'm on paracetamol/dihydrocodeine 30/500 tablets....what is the slow release about please? You said you'd reduced your normal tablets - so what is 'slow release'.....asking because my tablets aren't so good. Thanks. x

  • Hi ginawen They are the same as your dihydrocodeine but slow releasing. I take 90mg in the morning with two paracetamol and one 30 MG of dihydrocodeine. In the afternoon I take 30 MG with 2 paracetamol then four hours later again one 30 MG dihydrocodeine and 2 paracetamol. Then after dinner I take another 90 MG slow releasing dihydrocodeine with 2 paracetamol and 30mg dihydrocodeine. Because they are slow releasing they totally keep you out of pain. I hope I have explained it well enough for you if you have any more questions just let me know. I will send you the picture of the slow releasing dihydrocodeine. I hope that you are as well as you can be. Jan 🤗🤗xx

    All my hopes and dreams for the both of you

  • Hi Ken Thank you so much can't believe how these tablets have taken the pain away. I truly don't understand why GPs can't put you on them in the beginning. I hope that you and your wife are both keeping as well as you both can be. Jan 🤗🤗xx
