What is codeine used for?
Codeine is used for the short-term relief of mild to moderate pain. It should only be used when other forms of non-opioid pain relief have not been successful in managing pain or are not tolerated.
codeine promethazine 240ml is not usually recommended for the treatment of chronic pain.
Codeine may also suppress a dry cough.
How does codeine work?
Codeine works directly on opioid receptors in the central nervous system and reduces feelings of pain by interrupting the way nerves signal pain between the brain and the body.
It also suppresses the activity in the brain that controls coughing.
