Codeine Phosphate is part of a family of medication called opioids. The human brain contains opioid receptors which are normally used by the body’s natural painkilling chemicals, called endorphins. Opioid medications such as codeine phosphate work by attaching to those receptors. This mimics the work of the endorphins and reduces, or eliminates pain. Codeine is considered effective for mild to moderate pain.

Codeine Phosphate is part of the opioid family of medications, a group that includes fentanyl, methadone, oxycodone and other narcotics. Often prescribed in conjunction with Paracetamol (Solpadol and Co-Codamol) for effective pain relief, codeine phosphate is also used to treat painful diarrhoea not caused by toxic substances. Codeine Phosphate may be used as a cough suppressant to give respite from painful, coughs that expel no mucus.
