Acetaminophen-Codeine
Codeine/acetaminophen - Oral


Acetaminophen-Codeine is a combination of a narcotic (codeine) and a non-narcotic (acetaminophen) used to relieve mild to moderate pain. Codeine works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, and acetaminophen decreases the formation of prostaglandins, therefore relieving pain.
