Codeine Stop Hiccups
I take 2 butalbital with codeine a day, I want to stop taking it. What is good taper method, that is safe?
Slowly: I would chat with your md that is prescribing but the best answer is very slowly. Start by taking 1.5 per day for several days then one per day for several days then one half per day for several and then even every other day at one half pill per day. Write out a schedule to go down every 5 or 6 days and stick to it! good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Surgeon in Lanzarote suggested Nolatil for post-operative pain. It doesn't stop the pain - is it OK to take 30mg codeine with each 575mg Nolatil?
I have an attack of asthma for a week can I take codeine to stop the cough that has come with it? Thanks.
See your doctor: The cough can certainly be debilitating and codeine is sometimes a good adjunct but the goal is to effectively treat the asthma so the flareup and cough resolve rather than suppressing the cough. I see that you have a history of alcohol addition so in your case codeine and any cough syrup with alcohol is not advised. ...Read more
I cannot stop coughing? I've been coughing for an hour straight. I'm taking guaifenesin/codeine syrup
Response: I see your recently had bronchitis and could not take mucinex. I am not one to favor cough suppression as the cough reflex is natural in trying to remove substance in the airways which does not belong there. Your best option is to see someone and make sure you do not have something worse. ...Read more
I'm prescribed codeine sulfate taken daily i'm having hysteroscopy in 2 days and undergoing general anesthesia. When should I stop taking codeine?
Continue the codeine: I would recommend that you continue the codeine thru the surgery. On at the morning of surgery take your medications with a sip of water. Make sure that the anesthesiologist is aware of your codeine intake.* He/She MUST know you are taking a narcotic (codeine) prior to surgery. You MUST tell the anesthesiologist the dose and frequency of administration. You may taper the codeine after surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have just taken 45mg codeine and 5mg of temazepam together, by mistake. Is there a risk if I go to sleep I might stop breathing?
Codeine Temazepam: This really depends on whether you have been on these medications for a long time or not. Also knowing the doses makes no difference as the medications work differently on people. Judging from the amounts you took in most people this will just make you very tired and sleepy. ...Read more
I'm on Oxycodone HCL 10 MG for post-surgery. I have severe Bronchial cough & can't stop coughing. They gave me Mucinex/codeine syrup. Can I take both?
Yes, carefully: As you probably know, those are both narcotics. The codeine will also block pain. While the Oxycodone won't help the cough that much. So..I recommend starting with the cough Meds, so the pain isn't worse by coughing. Then, if pain continues, add the Oxycodone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
