From what I read, rarely do people suffer substantial withdrawals from codeine. It has the least intense withdrawals out of all opiates. Would it not make sense, then, to use it to come off of harder opiates? My theory is that when you switch from hard opiates to codeine, you will be in a minor withdrawal from switching to a much lesser opiate that still provides some relief. Eventually, the body will adjust to the codeine and you can taper off of codeine which will have much less intense withdrawals.
What do you guys think about using codeine for withdrawal?
