Synopsis

Codeine by Brigid M. Kane

An effective pain reliever from the opiate class of drugs, codeine is often prescribed to treat people with severe respiratory infections or those recovering from dental or other surgery. It is also prescribed as a cough suppressant. But because this alkaloid narcotic can be easy to obtain in various forms - in the U.S. and abroad - it's often abused by people seeking its euphoric effects. This new book gives students important and unbiased information about this addictive substance and how it affects both the mind and body. Straightforward facts combined with full-color photographs and illustrations, a glossary, sidebars, and other features makes Codeine an instructive guide to the powerful painkiller often diverted for abuse.
