Codeine is an opioid pain-relieving medicine that treats mild to moderately severe pain and also relieves coughing and diarrhea. You can get Codeine Phosphate 60mg Tablets as single ingredient medicine or as a multi-ingredient pain reliever when combined with other pain relievers, cold and flu medicines.
The usual formulation of codeine is codeine phosphate, but can also be found as dihydrocodeine. The Codeine Phosphate 60mg Tablets are small and white, but sometimes, they can also be found in a transparent capsule form. You must swallow the Codeine tablets without chewing and breaking them and with plenty of water. Each tablet of Codeine Phosphate 60mg contains 60mg of Codeine Phosphate Hemihydrate, Maize starch, Magnesium stearate, and Lactose monohydrate.
Codeine is prescribed to provide relief from these conditions:
Mild to moderate pain
Severe pain, used when combine with paracetamol and aspirin
Dry irritating couch
Flu and cold, used when combined with decongestants and antihistamines
Sometimes, doctors may prescribe codeine to cope with mental illnesses such as anxiety or depression, chronic pain, or to get high.
Avoid Taking Codeine If You Have
History of allergic reactions to codeine
Breathing problems or severe asthma
Hyperventilation or frequent attacks of asthma
A blockage in your stomach, intestines, or other parts of the digestive tract
People younger than 18 years old should never take codeine. The body metabolism of some people breaks down codeine rapidly in the liver, thus reaching levels higher than normal. This slows down breathing to dangerous levels and may even prove fatal, especially for children.
Your Doctor Must Know If You Have Ever Had:
Sleep apnea or other breathing problems
Low blood pressure
A brain tumor or head injury
Adrenal gland disorders, such as Addison’s disease
Addiction to drugs or alcohol or a mental health problem

How Does It Work
The mechanism of action of Codeine Phosphate 60mg involves acting directly on opioid receptors in the central nervous system. This interrupts the way nerves send pain signals between the brain and the body and thus reduces the feeling of pain. Codeine also suppresses activity in the brain to control coughing.
Interactions With Other Medicines
Some medicines interact with codeine and increase the chance of side effects in the person taking it. Your doctor should know if you are using any medicines for the following:
High blood pressure
To stop being sick or feeling sick
Mental health problems
Tension or anxiety
Taking Codeine With Other Pain Relievers
It is both safe and effective to take codeine with aspirin (only for people aged 16 and over), paracetamol, and ibuprofen. Some pain-relieving medicines already contain codeine, such as co-codamol, solpadeine, and dihydrocodeine.
Never share your medicine with anyone, or take anyone else’s medicine. Always follow your doctor’s instructions and the guidelines mentioned on the medicine label when taking Codeine Phosphate 60mg Tablets.
