Consult you doctor..: Before taking any medications. Codeine is often used for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain when the use of an opioid analgesic is appropriate. Again it is important to consult your physician for a proper pain assessment to determine the appropriate course of therapy.

i can think of no way this could happen. Well maybe if you took so much codeine you for got to take your levothyroxine, But best to check Drugs.com and enter into their drug interaction check both of theses as well as any other meds your are taking to be certain. Always discuss with your Dr.
