Doctor insights on:
No such thing as: "stronger." it is a misnomer to talk about strong and weak opiates, although doctors do this too. It depends on dose and side effects. Codeine is relatively impotent - takes 30 mg to equal 5 mg of hydrocodone, but at those same doses they do pretty much the same thing. However, Codeine has way more potential for side effects, especially at higher doses, so it is more poorly tolerated over 60 mg. ...Read more

Dr gave me cough syrup with codine an hour ago can I still take a tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 with codine?
Don't advise it: Unless your physician who gave you the cough syrup with codeine, knew you were also taking tylenol (acetaminophen) #3, you should not take both.

Check with your physician first. ...Read more
