About Codeine Phosphate

What Is Codeine Phosphate 30 mg?

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.

A look at the Side Effects

People taking codeine phosphate 30 mg tablets do not commonly experience side effects. However, about one in ten people experience at least one of the following, if the medication is not taken correctly:

Important Recommendations regarding Usage and Dosage

Before you buy codeine pills online you should be aware of the dosage recommendations. Patients usually get the maximum benefit from this medication for pain reduction by taking one 30 mg tablet no more than four times in a 24-hour period, with intervals of 4-6 hours. For pain relief, no more than 240 mg should be taken in one day. For dry cough, half the dosage of codeine should be taken. If you are taking this medication to treat diarrhoea, take one 30 mg tablet three or four times a day. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.

Codeine phosphate 30 mg tablets work by joining to the opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord which is also known as the central nervous system (CNS). Thus, they inhibit pain messages that are sent to the brain, resulting in a reduction of sensations of pain that is felt in one's body.
