Featured: codeine Main Article

Codeine is a narcotic pain reliever (analgesic), frequently combined with Tylenol or aspirin for more effective pain relief. Codeine can impair thinking and the physical abilities required for driving or operating machinery and, if used for the long-term, may lead to mental and physical dependence. It is important to be aware of drug interactions, effects on pregnancy and nursing mothers, as well as common side effects on the user.
