    Hi all. This is my first thread, I've been a long time lurker but this is the first time I've not been able to find an answer using the search function

    SWIM is currently addicted to dihydrocodeine, and recently it's gotten to the point where he's taking such large quantities of the drug, that the side effects he's experiencing far outweigh any pleasureable effects. He has been opiate addicted for around 3 years so has quite a large tolerance

    He's decided (not for the first time) that it's time to quit, and He's all too familiar with the horrible withdrawals He has to endure when stopping

    his question is, He has recently came upon a supply of mirtazapine 30mg (Remerol) tablets, will these help ease the insomnia and anxiety of the withdrawals?
    He has cannabis which he knows helps a GREAT deal, but he feels it isn't enough on it's own

    swims prescribed mirtazapine and personally i think the sedative effects diminish extremely fast like within a few days id say the best choice, assuming you dont just want to go to your dr and get on the suboxone program [i woudnt bother with methadone your just swapping one addiction for another], would be benzodiazepines esspecially nitrazepam clonazipine or alprazolam
