How Does Codeine work?
Buy Codeine online which can be extracted from naturally growing poppy plant and manufactured in the forms of the tablet for medicinal use. Codeine is narcotic analgesic which is ingested orally to relieve severe pain. After the ingestion of codeine, its small amount is converted into morphine.
Codeine acts on the mu-opioid receptors which majorly works for the transmission of pain throughout the body and central nervous system. Codeine binds the receptors to transmit pain, and our body feels no pain sensation and thus increasing pain tolerance though the pain remains in the body as same.
The converted morphine acts to cause sedation which leads to drowsiness. There may be breathing depressions because mu-opioid receptors may be active at some specific sites in the central nervous system. It is also a cough suppressant due to its antitussive activity in the body. Codeine directly affects the cough centre in medulla which is a part of our brain.
