Codeine nightmare by ScarymaryHi Wizzy My advice speaking from personal experience with this drug is cold turkey unless you’ve got someone who can manage your taper because it only takes one time of taking your usual dose and you’re back to square one. I went cold turkey about 4 month ago and it honestly was hell I couldn’t sleep I was depressed I was in so much pain I was never off the toilet I had zero motivation my poor wife had to do everything and we have 2 small children one of which was only 5 month old ! What helped me was excercise, mainly walking it stops the RLS and tires you a bit which helps with the sleep, warm baths to soothe the aches, imodium and plenty of it, healthier eating more fresh food and fruit avoid processed food because your body will use up vital energy to digest it. I eventually got hold of some sleeping tablets also for a week to help with sleep, then I used over the counter Nytol on and off physical withdrawals were gone in around 2-3 weeks and mental withdrawals around 6 weeks but I’m here still 4 month on and not touched a single tablet not even been tempted really ! This is from a 10 year addiction so it may be a few weeks of hell but versus the rest of your life it’s nothing ! Best of luck and sorry about your husband that’s awful. Also if there’s anyone you can tell about your addiction it helps massively to talk I told my wife and mother and they helped me thru it.
