- Differential Diagnosis
- Try building your search one term at a time, and be as specific as you can! Search term example: "chronic cough".
- Do not enter multiple findings such as "anemia, chronic cough, weight loss, vomiting" all at the same time.
- After selecting your term from the search results a list of possible diagnoses will be generated. If the list is too long, you will be able to narrow it down by entering additional terms.
- Do not enter values such as "heart rhythm 110" or "sodium 125", instead use "tachycardia" or "hyponatremia".

Dosage should be adjusted according to severity of pain and response of the patient. It should be kept in mind, however, that tolerance to codeine can develop with continued use and that the incidence of untoward effects is dose related. Adult doses of codeine higher than 60 mg fail to give commensurate relief of pain but merely prolong analgesia and are associated with an appreciably increased incidence of undesirable side effects. Equivalently high doses in children would have similar effects.
The dose of this combination product is limited by the amount of codeine phosphate per capsule. For adults, a single dose of codeine phosphate should not exceed 60 mg. For children, the usual recommended single dose is 0.5 mg/kg.
For the capsule containing 15 mg or 30 mg of codeine phosphate, the usual adult dosage is one or two capsules every four hours as needed.
For the capsule containing 60 mg of codeine phosphate, the usual adult dosage is one capsule every four hours as needed.
