Codeine is an opiate used to treat pain, coughing, and diarrhea.[4][5] It is typically used to treat mild to moderate degrees of pain.[4] Greater benefit may occur when combined with paracetamol (acetaminophen) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aspirin or ibuprofen.[4] Evidence does not support its use for acute cough suppression in children or adults.[6][7] In Europe, it is not recommended as a cough medicine in those under 12 years of age.[4] It is generally taken by mouth.[4] It typically starts working after half an hour, with maximum effect at two hours.[4] Its effects last for about four to six hours.[4]

Common side effects include vomiting, constipation, itchiness, lightheadedness, and drowsiness.[4] Serious side effects may include breathing difficulties and addiction.[4] Whether its use in pregnancy is safe is unclear.[4] Care should be used during breastfeeding, as it may result in opiate toxicity in the baby.[4] Its use as of 2016 is not recommended in children.[8] Codeine works following being broken down by the liver into morphine; how quickly this occurs depends on a person’s genetics.[4]

Codeine was discovered in 1832 by Pierre Jean Robiquet.[9] In 2013, about 361,000 kg of codeine were produced while 249,000 kg were used, which made it the most commonly taken opiate.[10] It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system.[11] The wholesale cost in the developing world is between US$0.04 and US$0.29 per dose as of 201. In the United States it costs about one dollar a dose. Codeine occurs naturally and makes up about 2% of opium.
