Corex and Spasmoproxyvon contain opiates which is addictive drug. The effects are similar to heroine/ morphine. It's a strong addiction and over a period of time affects cognitive abilitiesand pain perception. Treatment requires detoxification for withdrawal symptoms and later rehabilitation to prevent relapse. It's a process and is better done under a specialist's supervision.
