Reviews for Codeine
"more than a decade of a horrible chronic cough, doc put me on codeine and whatever damage it might be doing to my body, it has been well worth it. I have had to increase dosage considerably but so far I have not become immune, thank god, because I don't want to live coughing like I have in the past. No side effects that are negative."

"I could barely breath or eat when I had bronchitis. When I took codeine I could at least drink water and eat noodles. I don't know how I would have survived without it. Although I had to quit taking it before I finished my prescription because it made me feel "drunk" if I don't have major pain."

"I took this medication in liquid form, when I had strep throat, and it was very helpful in reducing painful coughs."
