Codeine and Alcohol speaks to what is Codeine, Codeine alcohol interaction and Codeine side effects.

Codeine is generic name for the drug which is marketed by various manufacturer’s and belongs to a family of drugs known as narcotic pain medicines and is used to treat mild to moderate severe pain. It may also be used for purposes not listed here.

Do not consume alcohol while using codeine as the side effects will be extreme even resulting in depth.

At this time the medical community defines moderate consumption of alcohol as no more than two drinks per day and no more than 14 drinks per week. Anything more than that is considered an unhealthy dependency on alcohol that may have adverse social, family and health consequences.

If a person drinks only once or twice a week but drinks on the same days each week and more than two drinks this is considered as an alcohol dependency.

If a person binge drinks at any time during the week this is also considered as alcoholism.

Some consider alcoholism as a disease while others consider it an addiction which is the result of personal choice and character fault. This school of thought blames the alcoholism on life style choices.

Personally I consider alcoholism a genetic tendency as I have seen families of alcoholics even when they live far apart. These unfortunate people are probably dependent on alcohol from the first drink.

When alcohol interacts with prescription over the counter drugs it usually results in negative health effects most especially liver damage as the main organ affected.
