These drugs carry other risks, apart from causing dependency. Ibuprofen (Nurofen) can wreak havoc on the stomach, which is why Mel Smith ended up in casualty with two burst ulcers. The website “over-count”, which collects information on OTC drugs, reports that a third of people regularly taking high doses of Nurofen Plus have suffered pancreatitis, an agonising condition that can be fatal.

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to gain a better understanding on perspectives of over-the-counter (OTC) codeine users and issues relating to.

Utilising a qualitative research methodology we conducted interviews with 20 participants who were OTC codeine users and met DSM IV criteria for codeine dependence.

The experiences of participants suggest a number of barriers exist to effective intervention for OTC codeine dependence in the community pharmacy setting. Identification of these barriers will provide an opportunity to more effectively target interventions to reduce harm related to OTC codeine products. Increased involvement of pharmacists in OTC codeine sales was associated with help-seeking by codeine users.

Key themes identified included experience of participants acquiring OTC codeine and participants' interactions with pharmacists. The OTC codeine-dependent participants found it generally easy to access OTC codeine, describing 'standard' questioning, minimal intervention from pharmacists and only occasional refusal to supply. A better appearance and presentation was generally linked to easy codeine supply.

So here’s the problem with having really freely available OTC codeine…it literally creates as many headaches as it relieves in moderate to heavy users. Treating rebound headaches involves a slow wean, or a hospital stay for infusion therapy to wean off it faster. It also demands having nonpharmacological methods of improving the headaches, such as aerobic conditioning, stress management strategies, and other CBT-type skills.

How best to use these findings to identify at-risk OTC codeine users requires consideration. Approaches aimed at reducing harm from prescription opioids may be difficult to implement in pharmacy settings. Implications for pharmacists and other health professionals are discussed.

The authors conducted a web-based survey with people who self-reported OTC codeine use. Eight hundred participants completed the survey that examined codeine use and dependence, pain, and general physical and mental health.

Recently, there has been considerable policy and public interest in the availability of over-the-counter (OTC) codeine. Case reports demonstrating severe harm from OTC codeine have been published. However, few studies have examined how people use these products and who develops dependence. The aim of this study was to better understand who develops problematic use of OTC codeine.

Codeine-dependent people differed from nondependent codeine users on a range of characteristics. They were younger, had lower levels of employment and education, and were more likely to report family history of substance dependence. They were more likely to have taken well above recommended doses of OTC codeine and have taken codeine for considerably longer periods of time than recommended. Codeine-dependent people in this study differed markedly from other populations of opioid-dependent people recruited to research in Australia and were more similar to the general population, suggesting that a web-based survey may have reached an under-researched population of opioid-dependent people.
