Posology and method of administration
Prior to starting treatment with opioids, a discussion should be held with patients to put in place a strategy for ending treatment with codeine in order to minimise the risk of addiction and drug withdrawal syndrome (see section 4.4).
Adults: The usual dose is one or two tablets every four to six hours when needed, up to a maximum of 8 tablets in any 24-hour period.
The maximum daily dose should not exceed 240 mg.
Elderly: A reduced dosage may be necessary.
Children aged 16-18 years: one to two tablets every 6 hours when necessary up to a maximum of 8 tablets in 24 hours.

Special warnings and precautions for use
(See also “Contraindications”. Note particularly that Zapain is contraindicated in patients with severe renal or hepatic impairment.)
Drug withdrawal syndrome may occur upon abrupt cessation of therapy or dose reduction. When a patient no longer requires therapy, it is advisable to taper the dose gradually to minimise symptoms of withdrawal. Tapering from a high dose may take weeks to months.
The opioid drug withdrawal syndrome is characterised by some or all of the following: restlessness, lacrimation, rhinorrhoea, yawning, perspiration, chills, myalgia, mydriasis and palpitations. Other symptoms may also develop including irritability, agitation, anxiety, hyperkinesia, tremor, weakness, insomnia, anorexia, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, increased blood pressure, increased respiratory rate or heart rate.

If women take this drug during pregnancy, there is a risk that their newborn infants will experience neonatal withdrawal syndrome.
Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction
Quinine or quinidine may inhibit the analgesic actions of codeine. Concomitant administration of Zapain and MAOIs or tricyclic antidepressants may increase the effect of either the antidepressant or codeine.
Fertility, pregnancy and lactation
Regular use during pregnancy may cause drug dependence in the foetus, leading to withdrawal symptoms in the neonate.
If opioid use is required for a prolonged period in a pregnant woman, advise the patient of the risk of neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome and ensure that appropriate treatment will be available.
Administration during labour may depress respiration in the neonate and an antidote for the child should be readily available.
If the patient is an ultra-rapid metaboliser of CYP2D6, higher levels of the active metabolite, morphine, may be present in breast milk and on very rare occasions may result in symptoms of opioid toxicity in the infant, which may be fatal.
