I was given zapain(30mg + 500mg parectmol) 3 yrs ago by a locum gp for my back pain after an accident,I had a dbl discoptomy in 2001,but lived life best I could till Jan 2014 the accident!.now my spinal surgeon says he can't treat me anymore (had 4neve blocks/bursa in groin+hips steroid inj) till I deteriorate much worse-10/15yr he's given me,now iam 45, so he sent bak 2 gp,iam addicted to codeine,I got a bo****king from gp for over ordering, 4 a day does nothing,my spine surgeon said he was worried about parectmo& codiene togetherl so gp is only going to restrict it &split the 2 + told me to take them 2 hrs apart. he also increased the gabapentin to 2×300mg 3×a day for nerve pain ..I feel as if iam in trouble but iam awake 16-18 hrs a day & the pills are designed to only last for 12..do Dr's really listen, .
Is anyone else addicted to codeine ?
Or on a 1800mg of gabapentin.
