I was prescribed this drug for a chronic condition ("Runner's Knees"), and I take a half tablet when I have swelling and pain. I have only ever needed one a day (in 2 halves usually), have no side effects at all and find that it does wonders! I have been taking it for about a year, occasionally don't need any at all and have never felt the need to take more than one tablet a day. No other problems, so I guess I'm the lucky one!

I have found the drug to only dull the pain a little bit and also make me constipated. I can take without food but found that it gave me a stomach ache and made me FEEL like i had to go to the bathroom, though i couldn't. I would only recommend this drug to people with minor pains and maybe take a stool softener with it, especially if you have problems going in the first place.

Tried taking it for osteoarthritis of the knee. The only effect that it had on me was to make me cranky which I didn't need since I was in pain and already cranky enough. To be fair, I'm used to taking oxycodone occasionally for back pain so I'm guessing that this wouldn't have worked for me anyhow. They tell me this stuff's addictive, I just don't get it. It doesn't make me high and it doesn't work. Why would I get addicted to it? I have the same experience with oxycodone as relates to not getting high. Those drugs just don't affect me that way. I'd be happy if they worked at all!

The medication had no positive affect on me. Did nothing for the pain, and only caused me to be very tired and groggy.

The medication is a tricky one. It can easily cause you to be nauseous. Eating somethings helps with that BUT decreases the effect of the drug. Antihistamines help as well but you must be careful about drowsiness and the possibility that it may cause breathing problems. Doesn't last very long in the system. I found that having a cup of coffee or some other form of caffeine gives this medication a boost though there's that chance that the caffeine can upset your stomach. I'm alright with it but only for minor pain.

I was prescribed this medicine for menstural cramps. I took one and it did nothing, but then I took another one and it worked wonders. Besides, who doesn't love codiene?
