About

There are three main types of pain medication: paracetamol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDS like ibuprofen, and opioids that range in strength from codeine through to high dose examples like tramadol and morphine. Each works in a different way. Most people only need to take painkillers for a few days or weeks. His dependence on pain medication became so extreme that their family life was torn apart.

Description

Personal stories. Prescription medication dependence is a medical condition which can happen to anyone. It is a quite common consequence of regular use of certain prescription medications such as opioid pain mediations or sedative medications benzodiazepines. If you are concerned about your medication use, you are not alone.

Personal stories

There are effective treatments available and health professionals who can help you to get back to living the life you want. She has decided to do so in writing. Do not stop or reduce your medication without first speaking to a health professional as this can be potentially dangerous. In I sought help from a psychiatrist to work through the abuse and torture I had experienced as. I was against any medication however he said it was necessary. He prescribed 10 mg Diazepam Valium and 10 mg Temazepam The Temazepam was equivalent to 5 mg Diazepam as well as mg Zoloft, an anti-depressant.

When I started taking the medication I was a healthy, fit forty-two-year-old.

Personal stories

As a family, my husband and I, and our three children enjoyed bush walking and outdoor activities. Within three years of starting that medication my coordination Codeine addiction stories deteriorated, and my GP suspected that I was either suffering from a brain tumour or Multiple Sclerosis MS.

ByI had worked through the trauma of the abuse and come to terms with it, however, the psychiatrist wanted me to remain on the medication because of the MS diagnosis. Over the years that followed he incorrectly reassured me that I could safely remain on it for the rest of my life.

Our life changed ificantly because I became increasingly more disabled requiring a motorised scooter when out shopping and home help to do everyday tasks. The active life that I had always enjoyed was no longer possible and instead I lived a restrictive, socially isolated, indoor lifestyle.

Eighteen years after starting the medication as I approached my sixtieth birthday, I decided to take stock of my rapidly declining health. Around about this time my then 4-year-old grandson asked why I walked, talked and moved so slowly. I explained to him about the MS. I decided to reduce the medication in the hope that I would see some general improvement in my health. Unfortunately, when I spoke to my GP about the withdrawal process he was extremely unhelpful. We contacted all support services in our area finally we were given the of a rural withdrawal support worker who was extremely supportive and understanding.

He gave very practical advice such as keeping a diary of the withdrawal process from day 1 to day 14, to help me understand the patterns of my withdrawal symptoms, which gave me a good indication of what to expect in my future withdrawals. He said that it was important to go for a walk or swim every day. Two thirds of the way through the tapering process I was informed by two separate neurologists that I did not have MS, it then became clear that the medication had caused the MS symptoms.

Regaining physical fitness became my focus after the completion of the withdrawal which took 2 years. Gardening and farm work helped me regain upper body and arm strength while walking and gardening helped strengthen my Codeine addiction stories. I pushed myself even on bad days because I wanted to regain my former health.

The Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms which I had experienced for about 8 years had resulted from developing tolerance to the medication, this started improving 6 months after completion of the withdrawal.

I went from being very frail at 47 kilos to 64 kilos. It took 2 years Now over four years since the completion of my withdrawal from the benzodiazepines I am fitter than the average year-old. As an example of this transformation, compared with 6 years ago when I struggled to walk just 50 metres, this week I was able to catch lambs when we were doing the docking and tagging of our lambs, last year I struggled to catch 60 lambs.

Unfortunately, the poor medical advice I received while withdrawing has resulted in me developing a very severe form of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities according to the specialist. Having MCS means that again I am forced to live in social isolation because all man-made chemicals affect me from fragrances to agricultural chemicals, essential oils to petrol and diesel.

It is now over four years since the final withdrawal. My life while on Diazepam was just an existence which lacked any quality because I was so physically, emotionally and intellectually disabled by Diazepam. I found that in the recovery phase I had to actively work at recovery even though I was tired and disillusioned.

It was also important to keep busy so as not to focus on the symptoms. When I started withdrawing from Temazepam and Diazepam in October I never envisaged that I would go from being frail with wasted muscles to being fitter than the average 65 year old, nor did I envisage that I would regain the ability to think and talk normally after so many years thinking and talking so slowly.

It is also wonderful to get back to being able to be organised and efficient rather than muddling through life. With luck, sharing my experience might help change a life or two. Eight years ago I had hip replacement surgery and the discharge meds were Serepax and Normison. Prescribed for sleep. Dosage was 15mg Serepax an hour before bed and 15mg Normison on retiring.

Serepax is oxazepam while Normison is temazepam. There are many brand-name benzodiazepines on the Australian market and the best known is Valium diazepam. I soon began to need more than a 15mg Serepax to achieve sleep, meaning that I required fresh prescriptions at shorter intervals. My GP doubled the tablet strength to 30mg and ordered double packs.

Kate’s story

No questions asked; no advice or caution offered. And not only for sleep…I had begun to use the med in waking hours too.

Facing any stress; long haul flights, SHORT haul flights, painful recovery from a fracture, sitting with gravely ill relatives, tutoring my literacy class, negotiating a messy legal matter, medical appointments… Ordinary, bog-standard life-requirements made me antsy…a quiver of low-grade anxiety…but Serepax sorted that like magic.

No trouble getting the tablets though as my GP wrote scripts for the asking. Then in June I crashed. Following routine cataract surgery my anxiety levels went ballistic and in two weeks I developed the blackest of depression; the memory of which terrifies me to this day. I would not have believed such profound suffering possible…merciless despair that made me desperate not to draw even my next breath.

I was admitted to hospital and prescribed two powerful psychotropics. In an effort to discover what was behind the depression I consulted a psychologist. She helped me identify a slew of major life traumas in the months preceding my breakdown and was of the opinion that I had suffered stress overload.

Some independent research I did uncovered another factor…benzodiazepines are a depressant. How wrong I was. I was lucky enough to have expert advice and good support but the early days of my taper off were pure hell. No other word for it. There are about 40 benzo withdrawal symptoms listed and although I only copped a half a dozen it was a battle to survive the early mental and physical distress even from one minute to the next. So be it. People from 19 to 87 and Codeine addiction stories have been on benzos for six months or 40 years.

You can do it too and like them, you will get your life back.
