Coducept review

Coducept is for the treatment of mild to moderate pain, for reducing pyrexia, and for coughs. Coducept is an opioid, mimicking the effect of endorphins, naturally occurring pain-reducing chemicals.


Some side effects include dizziness, light-headedness, feeling, faint, sleepiness, nausea or vomiting, vision disturbance, unusual tiredness or weakness, insomnia, constipation, stomach cramps, painful urination, redness or swelling at the place of injection, nightmares, a false sense of well-being, dry mouth, cephalalgia, or malaise. Patients may also experience less common side effects including 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, perspiration, irregular breathing, facial swelling, ringing in the ears, flushing, depression or mood swings, pale stools, or hallucinations. Taking too much Coducept can be dangerous. A patient should seek 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 a patient takes Coducept. Patients need to tell their doctor if they have a history of alcohol abuse or drug addiction, emotional problems, brain diseases or head injuries, lung diseases such as emphysema, enlarged prostate, asthma, epilepsy, low blood pressure, gallstones, colitis, heart disease, kidney or liver disease or a history of convulsions. If a patient has an under active thyroid, their chances are increased of having serious side effects. Do not stop taking Coducept suddenly. It is possible that you will experience withdrawal symptoms, including perspiration, nausea, runny nose, severe languidness, vomiting, pain, and depression.


There have been no conclusive studies done on whether or not analgesics such as Coducept 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 Coducept 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 Coducept 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 Coducept tablets, and it should not be used at all in children under12. Elderly patients also show an increased sensitivity to the ingredients in Coducept, especially breathing problems, and should be closely monitored for adverse effects.
