Pain Medication If Allergic To Codeine
Had 1 12oz bottle of alcohol (5.9%) forgot was supposed to continue my pain medication. Codeine#3. When can I take that after having alcohol?
Right now if...: Both codeine and alcohol can make you drowsy, dizzy, lightheaded, spacey etc. So it is advised to avoid combining them as they will have an additive effect. But one beer should not affect you that much. As long as you are not driving, operating heavy machinery or performing surgery tonight it should be safe to take you pain med now if needed.

Two hours ago I took 4mg diazepam. When will it be safe to take pain medication containing total of 30mg codeine.
4-6 hours: Diazepam and codeine have additive sedative effects. So to be careful not to get interactions, I would wait 4-6 hours before taking the codeine. You must be careful as they both can make you tipsy, stumble or fall. So to prevent any side effects separate their use by 4-6 hours. ...Read more
Dose dependent: Aspirin is good for mild pain, treats fever, and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent when used chronically. As the dose is increased, there is progressive issue with upset stomach and peptic ulceration. Codeine is good for moderate pain. As the dose is increased, it causes nausea and constipation. It is addicting. The drugs are combined to get a better total effect at lower doses. ...Read more

Can I take a half of a acetaminophen-codeine # 300-30 and a 500 mg tylenol tab before going to bed I broke my arm and have reduced my pain medication to one half tab morning and night.
I have migraine and normal tylenol (acetaminophen) does not work but doctor does not gives me codeine medications?
I hear there is a new medication called fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) which has codeine, can you tell me more about it?
An addicting med.: An addicting pain medicine for headaches. I would recommend you don't use it. I would do my best to understand the cause of your headaches. May just need new glasses, control your blood pressure, address the stress of life/job/responsibilities rather than complicate with an addicting medication. It would be my last resort, if ever at all. Go to a headache specialist, or interventional pain doc. ...Read more

Having chest, neck left arm, shoulder blade pains, when I take codeine phosphate or nytol tablets, can these medications cause heart problemsj?
Not usually, but..: These are not typical side effects. But as I like to say, every medicine has killed somebody sometime. Rarely, any drug may cause an unexplained or unusual reaction in a few people: nobody knows why, and it is called an idiosyncratic drug reaction. Of course, not taking medicines has killed a lot of people too. Apparently these two medicines and you do not agree. Do not take them. ...Read more
Can someone be hospitalized for bronchitis if prescription medication is not relieving chest tightness? Medications prescribed on 1/24/12: albuterol inhaler, cough sysrup with codeine, nebulizer treatment at urgent care facility on 1/24/12 only, predislon
See your personal MD: Medications prescribed are working against each other. Albuterol is a broncho dilator which helps you to cough up mucous. Codeine is a cough suppressant making it harder for you to cough up mucousrather than an urgent care center, it might be a better idea to make an appointment with your doctor to get you on proper medication. ...Read more

Probably not.: Sulfa allergy doesn't increase likelihood of allergy to other meds. Most reactions to Codeine not allergic but side-effects of codeine/narcotics (gi upset, constipiation, sedation, itching, hives). Codeine directly causes histamine release without the participation of allergic antibodies. Also, sulfa allergy is only to sulfa antibiotics, not other types of sulfas, e.G diurectics, diabetes meds. ...Read more
A lot of people confuse the nausea that is commonly experienced when taking Codeine and other narcotics with an allergy. They are not the same thing. An allergy is characterized by itching, hives, and--in severe cases--problems breathing. If you had nausea with codeine, you will probably also have it (maybe even more so) with morphine. This can usually be countered by using some anti-nausea medications.
If you had a true allergic reaction, it might have been to the Codeine or to some other component of the medication you took. In either case, that does not necessarily indicate that you would have an allergy to morphine. Still, if the reaction was a bad one--with breathing problems--you should definitely let your doctor know before taking any other narcotic. ...Read more
Naturally occurring alkaloids derived from the juice of the opium poppy plant such as morphine and codeine. The term opiate refers specifically to these substances.
Morphine, the prototype of opioid analgesics, is a full "pure" agonist of the mu receptor and major narcotic analgesic. Codeine is minor narcotic analgesic.
They are both in the same phenanthrene class.
Hope it helps. ...Read more
Maybe...: This generally depends on what kind of reaction you had to codeine. I don't usually recommend you take hydrocodone if you had a severe allergic reaction (i.e., hives, swelling, difficulty breathing, etc.). One thing about codeine, however, is that it can cause itching as a side effect, and this isn't necessarily an allergy. If that's all that happened, you may be able to try it. Talk to your dr. ...Read more
I take a drug test weekly because I am on suboxone. I come up positive for codeine every now and then. I have not taken any other substance. Help?
Codeine is an opiate: And therefore is tested for in many drug screens. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine, an opiod medication, and naloxone an opiod/narcotic reverser. Buprenorphine is metabolized differently from methadone, heroin, etc. And if you are ONLY taking suboxone, the opiate test should be negative. So I can't explain your results. Discuss with your suboxone provider:) ...Read more
I have been clean and in a program for 7 years and just had a drug test show up positive for Codeine without taking it. The test said 47ng/mL- causes?
We need to talk: As a pathologist, I would not accept this level as indicating codeine use. These assays generate background noise and low levels are to be expected when there's been no drug ingestion. This is about a sixth of 300 ng/mL which is a common cutoff for codeine. The lab's pathologist should agree or risk liability. I believe you're clean. If someone else doesn't, get a lawyer. ...Read more
