Many people are prescribed Codeine and come to find that while the medication they are taking is deadening their symptoms of pain, they also experience the wistful feeling that goes along with the pain-relieving properties. The frightening fact is that while their physical pain is being suppressed, so is whatever cerebral pain which they may be feeling. This is essentially why Codeine can become so addictive.
Being an opiate, codeine has a significant potential for addiction, and one underlying aspect is that once a person is physically dependent on the drug, when they stop taking it there is an evident withdrawal process associated with the codeine detox period. The worst codeine withdrawal symptoms pass within a few days, but it can take significantly longer to feel normal.
Codeine withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to: sweating, muscle pain, nausea, loss of breath, fever, insomnia, dehydration and in some cases even seizures.
