Important information

You should not use codeine if you are allergic to it, or if you have an uncontrolled breathing disorder, a bowel obstruction called paralytic ileus, or frequent asthma attacks or hyperventilation.

Codeine can slow or stop your breathing, and may be habit-forming. Use only your prescribed dose. Never share codeine with another person.

MISUSE OF NARCOTIC MEDICINE CAN CAUSE ADDICTION, OVERDOSE, OR DEATH, especially in a child or other person using the medicine without a prescription.

Medicines that contain codeine should not be given to a child just after surgery to remove the tonsils or adenoids.

Get emergency medical help if a child taking this medication has breathing problems, blue lips, or severe drowsiness, or if you cannot wake the child up from sleep.

Before taking this medicine

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

  • untreated or uncontrolled asthma or other breathing disorder;
  • a bowel obstruction called paralytic ileus; or
  • frequent asthma attacks or hyperventilation.

Medicines that contain codeine should not be given to a child just after surgery to remove the tonsils or adenoids.

In some people, codeine breaks down rapidly in the liver and reaches higher than normal levels in the body. This can cause dangerously slow breathing and may cause death, especially in a child.

Some medicines can interact with codeine and cause a serious condition called serotonin syndrome. Be sure your doctor knows if you also take 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.

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

  • liver disease;
  • asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, or other breathing disorders;
  • abnormal curvature of the spine that affects breathing;
  • kidney disease;
  • a history of 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;
  • mental illness;
  • a history of drug or alcohol addiction; or
  • if you use a sedative like Valium (diazepam, alprazolam, lorazepam, Ativan, Klonopin, Restoril, Tranxene, Versed, Xanax, and others).
