Codeine Withdrawal

Codeine is an opiate agonist - sedative and analgesic narcotic substance found in opium in concentrations between 0.1% and 2%. Codeine was first isolated from opium by the French chemist Pierre-Jean Robiquet in 1832. Because of the small concentration found in nature, most codeine found in medical products is synthesized from morphine. Being an opiate, codeine has the potential for addiction. It causes tolerance and physical addiction with chronic use. Clearly the properties possessed by codeine have or are fast becoming common knowledge amongst those abusing the drug.

The worst codeine withdrawal symptoms pass within a few days, but it can take months to feel normal.

  • runny nose
