Brief Answer:
Please visit a deaddiction center

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

Corex contains codeine which is an opioid kind of medicine and have strong addiction potential. It is not something which can be given up easily. Most of the patients with corex addiction need intensive treatment preferably in deaddiction center.

I request you to visit nearby deaddiction center. They specilize in treatment of opioid addiction and most patients respond within a period of 7-10 days.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.

I am sorry to inform you that online prescription is illegal in view of law and never possible without physically examining the patient. This is because it is not in interest of patient as every medicine have potential to cause side effects and can have devastating consequences.

Brief Answer:
Please do following

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for reverting back to me.

Since you stopped codeine recently these are after effects of drug abuse which are likely to stay for three to six months. You do not need to do anything actively but the following changes in life style can bring out positive changes more rapidly.

Regular physical exercise of 45 minutes or 200 minutes per week
Healthy eating and avoidance of junk and fast foods
Low calorie and low fat diet
Plenty of water intake
Use of antioxidants such as citrous fruits, garlic

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
