Codeine Phosphate is one of several types of codeine salts. Other examples include codeine sulfate or codeine hydrochloride.

The primary difference between salts is their solubility, which can also be influenced by the inactive ingredients in a particular formula. As far as effectiveness in treatment is concerned, there is little difference between codeine salts; all codeine salts are commonly lumped together and simply referred to as codeine.

Codeine is an opioid which may be derived from natural sources (opium poppies) or the result of a semi-synthetic process.

Formulations & Uses

Codeine Phosphate is used to help manage symptoms in a range of scenarios:

  • As a painkiller
  • As a cough suppressant
  • As a sedative
  • As an antidepressant
  • To stop or prevent diarrhea
  • To lower blood pressure
  • To reduce anxiety
  • To promote sleep

Use of codeine for the above purposes can vary tremendously by region; it may be difficult to get a prescription to buy Codeine Phosphate for some purposes depending on patient location. In areas where codeine use is relatively common, restrictions have more to do with the strength of the medication and other drugs mixed with it.

Outside of hospital settings the vast majority of Codeine Phosphate use is as a painkiller or cough suppressant. While technically available as pure codeine, it is most commonly sold in combination with other medications to enhance effectiveness or prevent abuse. It is most often sold in combinations of:

  • Other painkillers, such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, or aspirin;
  • Muscle relaxers;
  • Antihistamines;
  • Expectorants.

Some formulations even include two or more of the above additional medications, for example codeine, an antihistamine and an expectorant all in the same product.

Patients planning to buy Codeine Phosphate should pay close attention to any other medications included with it. Doses of non-codeine drugs in combination products are often quite high--high enough that users need to be alert when administering other treatments to prevent overdose, particularly with commonly-available painkillers like paracetamol or aspirin. These drugs are found in a great many other treatments, such as cold or flu medications.

Codeine Phosphate is available in tablets, syrups, and fluids for injection or IV use. Tablets are by far the most widely used outside of hospitals, though many people do buy Codeine Phosphate in syrups for children or patients who have difficulty swallowing tablets.

Dosage & Administration

Given the range of codeine and codeine-combination products available, as well as the variety of conditions they may be used to treat, it is difficult to summarize treatment. In most cases codeine is used as-needed, whether that need is to prevent pain, ease coughing, reduce anxiety, and so forth.

As with most medications, the lowest possible dose used for the shortest possible time is considered ideal. Some very rough guidelines for otherwise healthy adults:

  • For cough, start with 10 to 15 mg every 6 hours as needed. If insufficient, dosage may be increased to 20 mg every 4 hours. Do not exceed 120 mg in one day.
  • For pain, start with 30 mg every 6 hours as needed. Do not exceed 120 mg per day without explicit doctor instruction. In hospital settings, dosage may be increased to 60 mg every 4 hours.

Note that the above applies to codeine only. If using a combination product, the other ingredients may significantly alter dosage. Follow package instructions carefully, or speak with a doctor before deviating from manufacturer guidelines.
