I suffer from chronic joint pain, and when the pain spikes I take 30 mg of codeine and 500mg of paracetamol as an effervescent tablet.

I've used Codeine Sulfate for well over 5 years, 30mg.2x day for diabetic neuropathy, I've not had to up my dosage and it works very well when combined with 300mg. Gabapentin.

I have a history of Crohn's disease with many surgeries. 6 bowel resections and diarrhea took me from 180 lbs to 115 lbs in less than 30 days. Doctors tries numerous meds and none worked, until codeine sulfate. Wiith my short bowel I have had to take 2 60 mg tabs 4 times a day. My weight went up to 170 and diarrhea went from 30 times a day to 4.
