Welcome to HCM

Spasmo proxyvon consists of propoxyphen as one of its ingredients. It is an opioid substance. It is highly addictive and causes both physical and psychological dependence. You are taking about 16 caps per day and it is a high dose. You also takes corex and other cough medicines. See for an effective de addiction program first pre requisite is motivation. You should have enough determination for quitting substance.
Once you are motivated enough to quit then visit a good Psychiatrist for opinion. Medicines like Buprenorphin and Naloxone combination are given for few months in order to replace highly addictive opioid and then it is gradually tapered.
