Codicept review

Codicept is used in the treatment of mild to moderate pain, for reducing fever, and for coughs. Codicept is an opioid, mimicking the effect of endorphins, which are naturally occurring pain-reducing chemicals.


Some side effects of Codicept include dizziness, light-headedness, feeling, faint, sleepiness, nausea or vomiting, vision disturbance, unusual tiredness or weakness, insomnia, constipation, stomach cramps, painful micturition, redness or swelling at the place of injection, nightmares, a false sense of well-being, dry mouth, headache, or malaise. Patients may also experience the less common side effects of dark urine, bloody, black or tarry stools, white spots on lips or mouth, sore throat, pain in your lower back or side, jaundice, irregular heartbeat, restlessness, tremor or uncontrolled movements, sweating, irregular breathing, facial swelling, ringing in the ears, flushing, unipolar disorder or mood swings, pale stools, or hallucinations. Taking too much Codicept can be dangerous, and a patient should get emergency help immediately if they experience cold or clammy skin, severe weakness, confusion, slow heartbeat, severe drowsiness, pinpoint pupils, low blood pressure, liver or kidney damage, or severe restlessness or nervousness.


Some medical problems may affect the way you take Codicept. Be sure to tell your doctor if you have a history of alcohol abuse or drug addiction, emotional problems, brain illnesss or head injuries, lung illnesss such as emphysema, enlarged prostate, asthma, epilepsy, low blood pressure, gallstones, colitis, heart illness, kidney or liver illness or a history of convulsions. If you have an under active thyroid, your chances are increased of having serious side effects. If you stop taking Codicept suddenly, you may experience withdrawal symptoms, including sweating, nausea, runny nose, severe fatigue, vomiting, pain, and unipolar disorder.


There have been no conclusive studies done on whether or not analgesics such as Codicept are harmful to a pregnancy or to a developing fetus. Animal studies have shown that these medicaments can produce defects in animals, but only at very high dosages. However, it is known that taking too much Codicept during pregnancy can cause the baby to be born with an addiction to this medicament, and if it is taken for pain relief during delivery, the baby might be born with breathing problems. Most medicaments of this class do not cause problems for breastfeeding, unless the mother is taking large amounts, in which case the nursing baby might become addicted. If Codicept is given to children under the age of two, it may cause breathing problems. Other children may react with increased excitement or restlessness. Studies show that children should not be given extended-release Codicept tablets, and it should not be used at all in children under12. Elderly patients also show an increased sensitivity to the ingredients in Codicept, especially breathing problems, and should be closely monitored for adverse effects.
