These side effects may include drowsiness or sedation, difficulty breastfeeding, vomiting, breathing difficulties and floppiness in the nursing baby.
The baby may be more likely to experience side effects if the mother experiences side effects such as drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite or breathing difficulties after taking codeine. You should seek medical advice from your doctor before taking this medicine if you are breastfeeding.You should stop taking this medicine and consult your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical care if your baby shows any of the symptoms just mentioned.

Cholestyramine reduces the absorption of paracetamol from the gut. It should not be taken within an hour of taking paracetamol or the effect of the paracetamol will be reduced.
Metoclopramide and domperidone may increase the absorption of paracetamol from the gut. However, codeine may oppose the effects of metoclopramide and domperidone on the gut.
Long-term or regular use of paracetamol may increase the anti-blood-clotting effect of warfarin and other anticoagulant medicines, leading to an increased risk of bleeding. This effect does not occur with occasional pain-killing doses. If you are taking an anticoagulant medicine and you are also taking co-codamol regularly, your blood clotting time (INR) should be regularly monitored.
