Hi, I have two slipped disc, found out last nov 2011. I have to take co-coda mol 30mg between 2 to 4 tablets a day. Have had 1 injection into my spine already with some relieve, on the waiting list for another. How much damage am I doing to my body taking the tablet each day?
Frankly speaking, I would like to avoid painkillers as much as possible. There is no fixed criteria about damaging your body, it will depend on your body characteristics and dosage. For a few days it may not damage but for a longer duration, will make you dependent on it.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
