Customer Question

I've been on this dose after a car accident prescribed by my gp for 5 years

I've actually been on the dosage of 150mg sertraline, 8 X 30/500mg cocodamol a day and 10mg of diazepam for 5 years this must be having an effect on my liver. I'm in pain from 13 major surgeries to my leg and back but i don't drink alcohol at all and haven't since being on this medication I just get overly concerned when you see people dying of prescription med overdoses. Fortunately I quit the zopiclone they prescribed me....

Co Codamol has ain it --that is a high dose of acetaminophen which can affect your liver.Instead of co codamol, a stronger opiate like hydrocodone can be used to spare the side effects from acetaminophen.
