Thank you for your post
Stilpane is a Codeine based medication and like any opiate based medication can be addictive. It certainly appears that your friend has become dependant on these tablets, so we would strongly suggest bringing him in for an assessment with our Clinical Director with the view of booking him in for in-patient treatment. Codeine withdrawal can be painful and dangerous if not supervised by a Doctor who specialises in Opiate withdrawal. Depending on the quantity and duration your friend has been been taking Stilpane will depend on the severity of his withdrawals, which can include insomnia, sweating, dizziness, fatigue and nausea. We do not recommend detox without medical supervision or an out-patient detox. We strongly suggest in-patient detox with around the clock nursing supervision. Please note withdrawal from codeine can be longer than other drugs. We would love to be of assistance, please call our Clinical Director 021 790 7779 for further help.
Love & Light
