I have long established Osteo-Arthritis and have tried many prescription medications to alleviate the pain. Whilst not taking the pain away totally Dihydrocodeine has given me some considerable relief from the symptoms of pain. I do suffer quite severe drowsiness with this medication, this in itself is a problem i have to work around, the effort being worthwhile for the resulting pain relief. The pills are easy to swallow, mine are always taken after food due to other medical complications. I have in the past, had years on Steroids, both pills and injections. I have also tried numerous non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. All have had side effects leading to other problems including IBS and Reflux Oesophagitis. Dihydrocodeine have no side effects apart from the drowsiness. After many years of trying numerous products this is one i highly recomend, for me personally, it has worked well enough to live with the drowsiness. Read More Read Less
