Hi I am new to this forum and so dont know where to post but have posted in welcome thread and now here. I am currently doing a rapid Dihydrocodeine taper after a few months use and is quite tough. Am on my last chance with my doctor to keep to the schedule before she hands me over to the methadone/Suboxone team which is the last thing I want as I have been there and it was hell. Also am tapering rapidly from Lorazopam after a months use and finding it tough but Gp is unwilling to cross to Diazepam as she says the longer half life will make it more addictive. Am also taking Nitrazepam (Mogadon) 10mg at night for the past 6-7 weeks. I went to my first meeting in months today and it was really good.
