Codeine Sulfate Dosage
I've been taking codeine sulfate 60mg. Lately my medication is on backorder. Which other pain meds could I consider. It has to be similar to codeine?
See your doctor: There is no over the counter replacement for codeine. There are multiple other options, but they are all controlled substances that need be prescribed by a physician. See your doctor to determine which is best for you. ...Read more
Yes: Drugs tests look for 2 essential chemicals when they look for opiates - Codeine and morphine, which are similar compounds and they are both converted into each other. Hydrocodone is metabolized into Codeine which is then transformed by acetylation to morphine. These are the final common pathway products for most, but not all, opiates.

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 chronic RLS after 3yrs on mirapex (pramipexole) it now causes symptoms to worsen! also on codeine sulfate. What's next? Thought i'd found the relief

You can google the laundry list of meds we use (sinemet, klonopin, neurontin, mirapex, (pramipexole) etc.) but your best bet is to sit down with a sleep specialist in your area. He/she can guide next med selection. Btw, occasionally 400 mg of magnesium helps before bedtime. Cheap, too. Best of luck! ...Read more
