Once a person is physically dependent on Codeine, when they stop taking them there is a pronounced withdrawal syndrome associated with the detoxification. Physical symptoms include, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, anxiety, muscle and bone pain, runny nose, tearing eyes, yawning, excessive sneezing, etc.
While this withdrawal syndrome is very uncomfortable, the medical risks associated
with it are very low. However, due to the extreme discomfort experienced during
detoxification, most Codine addicts need to go into a detox program before they
check into treatment.
