I have an attack of asthma for a week can I take codeine to stop the cough that has come with it? Thanks.

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

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 (guaifenesin). 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 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?

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 more

Sort of: Tramacet (we in the States call it Ultracet) is a combination of Ultram (Tramadol) and paracetamol. Tramadol activates opiate receptors in the body, reducing pain, but not in the brain. Since it doesn't produce a "high", its addictive properties are less than that of codeine. Hope this helps! ...Read more
