Hello everyone

I'm here because I'm bipolar 2 - have been for many years but only diagnosed last year and am now on medication which helps a lot. I am married with a 4 year old daughter. I work 3 days and am doing an OU degree. My main problem is a dependency on pain killers (codeine) which I am going to admit at last to my psychiatrist. If anyone has had this problem i'd love to chat xxxx

Hi and :welcome:
Good to have you here.

I just wanted to ask how long you have been taking the codine and how long it took to get dependant on it. I'm just worried as I'm currently taking co-codamol as I found the codine on it;s own too strong. However at first just one tablet was more or less knocking me out and now i need 2 and there is nowhere near the same effect. I don't want to get addicted but at the same time I need them for my back pain. I've been on them for about a month now.
Thanks
Lady T:hug:
