2. Possible side effects

Like all medicines, Terpin and Codeine Linctus can
have side effects, although these don’t affect everyone.
Important side effects
Codeine is transformed to morphine in the liver by
an enzyme. Morphine is the substance that produces
pain relief. Some people have a variation of this
enzyme and this can affect people in different ways.
In some people, morphine is not produced or
produced in very small quantities, and it will not
provide enough pain relief. Other people are more
likely to get serious side effects because a very high
amount of morphine is produced.
If you notice any of the following side effects, you
must stop taking this medicine and seek immediate
medical advice: slow or shallow breathing,
confusion, sleepiness, small pupils, feeling or being
sick, constipation, lack of appetite.
