Hello Blondie, I dont take codeine so I am not sure what is going on with that. But let me just say this every morning I wake up at 5am and take the first of my 3xday meds. I start that early so that by the time I get out of bed at about 7am I feel like a person.
My children, grandchildren and my friends will all attest to the fact that if I dont have my meds in my system, nobody wants anything to do with me. My meds make me feel what I can only describe as normal. That means I feel as well as I am going to when dealing with cp.
Sometimes, the last 2 or 3 days before I go back to my doctor for my monthly update and my prescriptions, I have been running low lately. That is why when I go back June 1, I will be getting the increase in my meds that I asked for last month. I knew that in June I am going to increase my meds, but my doctor asked me to wait this month and gave me some gel for my arthritis in my fingers. I have no problem with trying the gel and it also worked, but that was not my only issue.
So I dont want to ramble on, I am sorry you are having such a bad time with your meds, I would ask my doctor if I were you and see if there is anything else you can take that wont have such a bad effect on you. Maybe you are crabby due to the fact that your pain is not being eased enough. Thats for you and your doctor to decide. Good luck to you, hope you are having a low pain day. Take care
