Codeine in the mix: Codeine is bundled with different meds (not OTC meds) for suppression effect. It's with Tylenol (acetaminophen) for moderate to severe pain. Alters how brain perceives pain. It's combined with promethazine to suppress cough. It's in Soma compound. Alters how brain perceives pain. It's in Fioricet. Decrease perception of headache pain Because codeine is an opioid, it has abuse and addiction risks.
