Re: Dihydrocodeine

Hi Sharon

I am not sure about the drug dihydrocodeine; it is not a familiar name to me. However, I recognize that codeine is an element of it. 40 of any pill is an excessive, way excessive, amount to take and seeing it has codeine in it, it is surely a serious problem. I have no doubt that the withdrawal from it would be severe. If it is 40 tabs a day, perhaps an outpatient program can help and withdrawal could be done at home. If it really is 40 at a time, your son belongs in a medical detox center.

I hope he recognizes the problem and does all he can to seek help. Looks like a full blown, serious addiction issue.

Best of luck

Re: Dihydrocodeine

thank you for your reply its 40 in one go and he want to come and live with us to try and detox i thought this would be very hard with no medical help so as you can see i am very scared he had been to varias doctors but because its not herion the say he is not a junkie (sorry about the word)and they cant help hinm in any way i live in england but my son lives in scotland also i think these drugs are opium based it was the doctor who put him on them at the start and that was about 20 years ago and i know you do build a tollernce to them
