Teddles said:merck17 got it in one, the amount of sorbital in it will clean you out once the buzz is over, plus it will make you sweat and wish you took something else. If you buy rikodine forte, the pharmaist will take down you details and write label on it and put your details on the data base to make sure you don't buy too much in a short time span.
The stuff is great if you have a dry cough.
merck17 said:There is only one product in Australian containing dihydrocodeine, and that's Rikodeine. Depending where you are in Australia too depends on what happens when you buy it. NSW regulations for Pharmacist Only Medications don't require them to record details but the pharmacist is "supposed" to do the transaction. Whereas in QLD, the details are recorded (most of the time it's dispensed like an rx) and the pharmacist is involved in the transaction (which may just be the assistant flashing it under their nose. It just depends on the pharmacist and how busy they are if they will come have a word to you. A lot of pharmacy assistants I know are actually a lot more militant than pharmacists I know.

Yeah I know...and it's my say at the end of the day anyway It pisses the girls off when they get all hard up with some bloke and I just hand it over at the end. No problems, no lectures. IMO it's a better AND safer anti tussitive than other options available (dextromethorphan). That stuff makes me ill. I don't see the addiction risk being all that high...hence again why it's available OTC. Still can't beat my favourite tho....Nucosef. When you got a bad cold, all blocked up, dry cough and feel like shit....it makes it all better
That's interesting about the choc. I'll have to look that up. I haven't heard that one before, and I've been doing this for 10 years. There's so many of those secret treatments going round that work really well, I love hearing bout them.
