What Is Codeine?
The Dangers and Symptoms of Codeine Use
Whether ingested alone or in combination with other substances, codeine can be highly-addictive. Due to easy access, a lot of people use the drug for recreational purposes. It’s the powerful euphoric effects that make it so attractive. However, using codeine recreationally can be dangerous on many different levels. Dependency can develop rapidly&mash;within two to three weeks of use&mash;and tolerance will continue to build up. In addition, improper doses of Codeine can lead to a lack of coordination and dulled responses. Opioids can cause long-term mental and physical dependence. If combined with other substances (such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen), codeine use may result in liver damage, kidney problems and respiratory depression. It can even lead to kidney failure, internal hemorrhaging, or death. Common effects associated with the use of codeine include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, depression, itching, dry mouth. Some individuals may experience a strong allergic reaction to the drug, such as rashes and swelling of skin. As with many other pain killers, chronic use of codeine may result in physical dependence. Withdrawal symptoms will inevitably appear and can be extremely unpleasant and may exacerbate other conditions.
