symptoms of migraine headache, nausea and vomiting.

They are available separately or together in one pack.

Codeine is transformed to morphine in the liver by an enzyme. Morphine is the
substance that produces pain relief. Some people have a variation of this enzyme
and this can affect people in different ways. In some people, morphine is not
produced or produced in very small quantities, and it will not provide enough
pain relief. Other people are more likely to get serious side effects because a
very high amount of morphine is produced.

If you notice any of the following
side effects, you must stop taking this medicine and seek immediate medical
advice: slow or shallow breathing, confusion, sleepiness, small pupils, feeling or
being sick, constipation, lack of appetite.
