Causes sleepiness

How it works
Codeine works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. It also acts on the part of the brain responsible for coughing. Chlorpheniramine blocks the action of certain substances produced by the body which induce allergic reactions such as a cough. Their combination is thus effective in the treatment of a dry cough.
