General codeine linctus dose guidelines include the following:

  • For cough in adults, the recommended dose is 15 mg (there are 15 mg in every 5 ml of the drug) every four hours, up to a max of four doses per day.
  • No codeine linctus dose is recommended for children because this drug has the risk of breathing problems and other complications.
  • A reduced dose may be needed in older individuals.

Other risks of codeine-based products include physical dependence and addiction. With a physical dependence on codeine, a person has used the drug for a period of time until their body feels like it needs codeine to function normally. Then, if someone were to stop taking it suddenly after developing a tolerance, they would go through withdrawal symptoms.

Codeine and other opioids are so addictive because they trigger a release of dopamine and feel-good neurotransmitters when they enter the brain. This then starts a cycle of addiction: your brain compels you to continue seeking out whatever it was that released the brain chemicals that felt pleasurable, over and over despite negative consequences.
