    Hi @CMM :) I'm sorry that you seem to be experiencing some negative side effects from taking co-codamol. As you may know, we don't allow medical advice to be shared here on the community, but I appreciate that you're looking to see if anyone else has a personal experience to share. Have you spoken to your doctor about the side effects you've been experiencing?

    You are right about medical advice not to be shared as we are not doctor's. Really it was just a personal experience on daily life on those prescription drugs. The side effects are expected for these tablets and any powerful pain killers will have some side effects, but i know them now and have to live with them, and there must be others who want to talk about them and not a taboo. They are Opiates.

    Hi there 

    I used to take these daily and had similar side effects 

    Now I only take them as and when required

           I too use to take these but the 30/500 did not like how they made me feel at all, and I can understand how people can become addicted to opiates .My doctor prescribed an alternative that I am happy with. Speak to your GP if you are not happy with the side effects.
