From one Canadian Jim to another!
You and thousands of others are stuck in this god awful dilemma. I am in my fourth year of codeine addiction and from all my research and studies so far the best way out is to go on one of these “taper down” courses. If you have an understanding doctor ask him to consider prescribing you a course of oxycontin medication in ever decreasing strengths. It has to be done over the course of a month to six weeks. You start with your present daily intake and end up taking only a 25 mil.Tablet each day on your final week. Along with this ask him about Novo-Coniine 0.1 mg tabs. for stomached cramps and the overall withdrawal process, A bountiful supply of amodium sulphate for diarrhea is a must also. Hope this information helps.
