From this study (2 months ago):
A few years ago having taken co-codamol for other reasons I found it to be an effective treatment for long standing inflammatory bowel problems. However, as time went on I found I was suffering from excessive hunger, even during the night. It has only recently occurred to me to stop taking Co-codamol and see what happens. It has only been three days so far but already the symptoms have abated although I now have the inflammatory bowel symptoms back again!
