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

May just need new glasses, control your blood pressure, address the stress of life/job/responsibilities rather than complicate with an addicting medication.

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

I have been on codeine phosphate 30mg for over a year. I am worried about sideeffects. What are the long term side effects of this drug?
Constip./Dependence: Constipation is a side effect that can occur at the onset and last throughout treatment. Regular use of any opioid (such as codeine) will produce a physical dependence on the drug that would be demonstrated if you attempted to abruptly withdraw- i.e. Agitation, diarrhea, sleeplessness, sweating, runny nose. Another effect is the possible increase in pain in your body (opioid induced hyperalgesia). ...Read more
Tested positive for codeine on a us navy urinalysis. I didn't do drugs. I think its my moms poppy seed cake. It had a pound in it. How do I prove it?
Can't really: Well you can't prove it because that's an example of a true positive test result but from a legal/normal use of poppy. Poppy seeds do actually have codeine in them, so there's no advanced test that will show there's no codeine in the urine, although requesting a "quantitative test" (more expensive) would demonstrate very low levels of urine codeine if just from poppy seeds to support your claim. ...Read more

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. Oxycodone produces relatively little, is has separate test. ...Read more
