Codeine is an FDA-approved medication known as an opioid analgesic that is used to treat mild to moderate pain. It is similar to, but not as strong as morphine, therefore it does not produce the same sedative effects. However, it still helps to alleviate pain resulting from illness, surgery or injury.
Understanding the Main Benefits of this Medication
This medication is effective at treating pain when other painkillers like paracetamol have not been effective. It is often used to treat diarrhoea in adults and adolescents over the age of 12. It is also effective at relieving a dry and painful cough.
