Hi undopaminergic!

Actually I have used a medication called Panacod quite a lot for pain, mainly headache, it's 500mg paracetamol (acetaminophen) + 30mg codeine per tablet and one dose is 2 tablets; 60 mg codeine.
I have never used illicit drugs but I can easily understand that people get hooked on opioids, and codeine is possibly the weakest of the bunch.

I take fluoxetine now and at least in theory it inhibits the conversion of codeine to morphine, so I (probably) don't get the same effect anymore.

Also, there is no way I could get a doctor to prescribe me those kind of meds for anxiety. But I get your point.

I actually have an appointment with my doc tomorrow over the phone. It's probably difficult to even get pregabaline since it has gotten a bad rep, at least here in Finland, my previous doc hated it. This is why I need a backup plan. Also, I tried Lyrica today since I have a box of them in 75mg strength. They expired long ago but they still had the same effect on me - feel a little drunk/intoxicated and dizzy, took 75mg x 2 with an 1 hr interval. The effect is strong but I feel like I need something more, maybe combine it with a sedating AP like sulpiride or Risperdal.

I don't think I have realized until recently how bad my anxiety really is. I'm optimistic in my nature and often joke about my situation making my anxiety (and depression) appear milder than it really is. I have anxiety constantly and have had it since childhood for unknown reason(s).
