Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
I have DDD and have been on dihydrocodeine for a number of years, although more recently it's not as effective as it used to be. I went to a pain clinic and have now been prescribed Butrans 5mcgs initially, rising to 10mcgs later.
I'm now on my 3rd day of 5mcgs and am experiencing splitting headaches (paracetamol do not relieve them) and feeling very low, almost depressed, and lethargic. Is this to be expected and has anybody else experienced this please? None of the information I've seen seems to confirm this and I'm a bit concerned as I feel so down and am prone to depression anyway and currently take sertraline. I'm not due to speak to anyone from the pain clinic for another few weeks.
