What is codeine?

 

Codeine is an opioid pain medication, sometimes called a narcotic.

Codeine is used to treat mild to moderately severe pain.

Codeine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

 

 

Codeine side effects

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to codeine: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Like other narcotic medicines, codeine can slow your breathing. Death may occur if breathing becomes too weak.

A person caring for you should seek emergency medical attention if you have slow breathing with long pauses, blue colored lips, or if you are hard to wake up.

Call your doctor at once if you have:

  • noisy breathing, sighing, shallow breathing;

  • a slow heart rate or weak pulse;

  • a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out;

  • confusion, agitation, hallucinations, unusual thoughts or behavior;

  • feelings of extreme happiness or sadness;

  • seizure (convulsions);

  • problems with urination; or

  • low cortisol levels--nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, dizziness, worsening tiredness or weakness.

Seek medical attention right away if you have symptoms of serotonin syndrome, such as: agitation, hallucinations, fever, sweating, shivering, fast heart rate, muscle stiffness, twitching, loss of coordination, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

Serious side effects may be more likely in older adults and those who are overweight, malnourished, or debilitated.

Long-term use of opioid medication may affect fertility (ability to have children) in men or women. It is not known whether opioid effects on fertility are permanent.

 

Common codeine side effects include:

  • feeling dizzy or drowsy;

  • nausea, vomiting, stomach pain;

  • constipation;

  • sweating; or

  • mild itching or rash

Important Information

You should not use codeine if you have severe breathing problems, a blockage in your stomach or intestines, or frequent asthma attacks or hyperventilation.

Codeine can slow or stop your breathing, and may be habit-forming. MISUSE OF THIS MEDICINE CAN CAUSE ADDICTION, OVERDOSE, OR DEATH, especially in a child or other person using the medicine without a prescription.

Codeine is not for use in anyone under 18 years old.

 

Taking codeine during pregnancy may cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the newborn.

Fatal side effects can occur if you use codeine with alcohol, or with other drugs that cause drowsiness or slow your breathing.

 

Before taking this medicine

You should not use this medicine if you are allergic to it, or if you have:

  • severe asthma or breathing problems;

  • a blockage in your stomach or intestines; or

  • frequent asthma attacks or hyperventilation.

In some people, codeine breaks down rapidly in the liver and reaches higher than normal levels in the body.

 

To make sure this medicine is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • liver disease;

  • asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, or other breathing disorders;

  • abnormal curvature of the spine that affects breathing;

  • kidney disease;

  • a head injury or brain tumor;

  • low blood pressure;

  • blockage in your digestive tract (stomach or intestines);

  • a gallbladder or pancreas disorder;

  • underactive thyroid;

  • Addison's disease or other adrenal gland disorder;

  • enlarged prostate, urination problems; or

  • mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction.

Some medicines can interact with codeine and cause a serious condition called serotonin syndrome. Be sure your doctor knows if you also take stimulant medicine, herbal products, or medicine for depression, mental illness, Parkinson's disease, migraine headaches, serious infections, or prevention of nausea and vomiting. Ask your doctor before making any changes in how or when you take your medications.

If you use this medicine while you are pregnant, your baby could become dependent on the drug. This can cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the baby after it is born. Babies born dependent on habit-forming medicine may need medical treatment for several weeks. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

Do not breast-feed while taking codeine. This medicine can pass into breast milk and cause drowsiness, breathing problems, or death in a nursing baby.

 

 

Codeine may be habit-forming, even at regular doses. Never share this medicine with another person, especially someone with a history of drug abuse or addiction. MISUSE OF NARCOTIC MEDICINE CAN CAUSE ADDICTION, OVERDOSE, OR DEATH, especially in a child or other person using the medicine without a prescription. Selling or giving away codeine is against the law.

Take this medicine with food or milk if it upsets your stomach.

Drink 6 to 8 full glasses of water daily to help prevent constipation while you are taking this medicine. Do not use a stool softener (laxative) without first asking your doctor.

Do not stop using codeine suddenly after long-term use, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to safely stop using this medicine.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep track of your medicine. Codeine is a drug of abuse and you should be aware if anyone is using your medicine improperly or without a prescription.

Do not keep leftover opioid medication. Just one dose can cause death in someone using this medicine accidentally or improperly. Ask your pharmacist where to locate a drug take-back disposal program. If there is no take-back program, flush the unused medicine down the toilet.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since this medicine is used for pain, you are not likely to miss a dose. Skip any missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. A codeine overdose can be fatal, especially in a child or other person using the medicine without a prescription. Overdose can cause severe muscle weakness, cold and clammy skin, pinpoint pupils, very slow breathing, extreme drowsiness, or coma.

 

What should I avoid while taking codeine?

Do not drink alcohol. Dangerous side effects or death could occur.

Codeine may impair your thinking or reactions. Avoid driving or operating machinery until you know how this medicine will affect you. Dizziness or severe drowsiness can cause falls or other accidents.
