How long does it to get over side effects from codine?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Codeine is a short acting opiate.

The side effects may take about 72 hours to subside since its last use.

Sometimes it may take longer upto 7 days.

Improvement is seen day by day.

What symptoms are you experiencing?

Oh right ok thank you.
I took a tablet earlier because ive got ovulation pain and was given codeine for it. So i have stomach ache, tiredness, stomach keeps making noises! And little shortness of breathe.

Ok do not worry.

You should be fine by tomorrow.

One tablet will not cause much problem.

These are common side effects from codeine.

Please drink adequate fluids to flush out the drug from your body.

Best wishes
