Use of codeine poses a risk for abuse or dependence.. It should be used with caution in patients with a history of alcohol or substance dependence as this may predisposed to becoming addicted to this drug. A symptom that is easily detected with opiate use is pinpoint pupils (miosis). Psychological dependence may occur early in use of this medication, but physical dependence and tolerance may develop upon repeated administration over several weeks or months (requiring larger or more frequent dosages of codeine to produce relief of pain or achieve a state of euphoria).. When codeineis abused, the individual is seeking the euphoric effect ("high"). Mild signs of withdrawal can occur in some individuals after using codeine for several days consecutively. Addiction to this drug can occur, even if taken as prescribed, when used for several weeks or months consecutively. When taken for treatment of chronic pain for several weeks or months consecutively, tolerance and dependence often occur. Once an individual has become dependent on codeine, a primary driving force to continue using codeine (or substituting other opiate agonists) is to prevent the very unpleasant neurochemical and physical withdrawal syndrome associated with discontinuing this drug. Symptoms usually associated with withdrawal may include: * Abdominal pain * Muscle aches * Joint pain.

(Note: the term "going cold turkey" comes from the gooseflesh that occurs during withdrawal that looks like the skin of a plucked turkey) Withdrawal of codeine is best handled by a physician that is skilled at assisting patients with opiate detoxification. Medications are often necessary to help control symptoms of withdrawal.

* Rapid heart rate.

* Eyes or nose watering.
