Codeine is an opioid analgesic with a chemical structure similar to that of morphine. It is, however, much less potent as an analgesic than morphine and it causes mild sedation only. The medication binds to opioid receptors, which are present throughout the central nervous system, to produce analgesia, sedation, and a feeling of relaxation. Codeine is also used for the treatment of diarrhea because of its ability to reduce intestinal motility.
For the relief of pain, healthy adult individuals may take codeine in doses of 15mg to 60mg up to 4 times a day. The maximum recommended daily dose of codeine is 240 mg. For non-productive/dry cough, codeine can be taken in doses of 10mg to 20mg every 4 to 6 hours, with a total daily dose not exceeding 120mg. For diarrhea, 30mg to 60mg of codeine should be taken 3 to 4 times a day.
