Hi Shelli~
Couldn't use it daily also due to the fact that side-effects were bothersome-the itchies, dry skin, &....the dreaded constipation.

Plus, altho great for pain, and they helped my depression, they did not help my ADD enough (naturally). And, my body/stomach eventually just
said, No More Fiorinal/codeine. They began to make me feel worse.

I went into a bad pain flare (supposedly fibro) & I have herniated discs, a bad one at cervical area, so I saw a new doc (referred by my g.p.). He put me on Soma (carisoprodal) and plain old Darvocette 100's. Plus, I take a beta-blocker and klonopin (generic) form. This has been best for my pain. The Soma was key here. A good muscle relaxer (& very few work for me) makes all the difference when one has FMS/ chronic myofascial pain (which is my biggest bug-a-boo, pain-wise, I believe).
Then, I met a great psychologist 2 months ago who sent me to a great shrink and I have been on Adderall (a stim, finally!!!). It brought me out of the deep depression I was in late summer. We are playing w/stim doses, but life is looking better now, and, finally, I have a ray of HOPE...
I'm also on low-dose Zoloft (50mgs.). The Add. was 30 mgs. 2x's a day, but I think I need some tweaking. I will be trying dexedrine this week, if plans progress as they should.
