What You Should Know AboutThe most important factor to consider about codeine is that the drug is addictive and that it does have a potential for causing physical dependence. The drug is habit-forming when taken repeatedly and sustained use of codeine can lead to a number of physical and psychological dependence factors that are difficult to treat. It can be a dangerous substance if it is not taken exactly as prescribed or if the drug is taken with other medications or alcohol. Codeine and alcohol can have deadly side effects because both of these substances cause central nervous system depression that can lead to come, seizures, and death. Talk to your doctor if you are a regular drinker and you have been prescribed for the treatment of cough or pain. It’s important that you do not take codeine with other medications unless you have been prescribed to do so by a doctor. It’s equally important to only take the prescribed amount of codeine and not to take the drug more often than the doctor has prescribed. Should a tolerance to the drug occur, the user should seek medical attention to determine if the dose should be increased or if another medication should be considered for the treatment of pain.
