Hi, It's been ages since I've been on this site - always helpful in the past. Is the there anyone who take opiates to help with diarrhea? I've been on it for over 6 years - not sure if it is still helping at this point and I am scheduled for an appointment at Mass General on July 17th so see what's new, if anything so that I can start weaning of the Codeine. I find out today that codeine at my pharmacist is now on back order indefinitely. The pharmacy recommends Opium Tincture. Is anyone using that tincture now and with what kind of results or in the past. Thank you for your time!! I need to have this script filled ASAP as I know what the side effects can be from not taking the codeine.
