    Should codeine be taken on an empty stomach?

    In regards to absorbtion and the likelyhood of nausea, should SWIM wait a few hours after eating and of so, how many? thanks

    No, tell swiy to get a 50ml syringe and squirt it up their bum. Seriously, it's a subjective thing, swiy will just have to work out what works best for them.

    Keep us informed if swiy finds out anything interesting.

    SWIM finds that eating a very small meal or snack (ie. an apple and a piece of cheese) about 10 minutes prior reduces nausea without having a major impact on absorption.

    SWIM finds that on a *completely* empty stomach the codeine takes effect sooner, but is more prone to cause nausea.

    Having an empty stomach is not a must, although swim does notice a difference in potency when he hasn't eaten in 4 hours or more.

    swim personally prefers to consume codeine on an empty stomach, but recommends in swiy's case to eat something very light (especially if its swiy's first time) like a small sandwich or some toast. The emptier the stomach, the better the absorbsion

    UTSE to find lots more data on this.

    Its best to take codeine rectally in swim's opinion but oral is 2nd best, and yes if SWIY doesn't get nauseous, take the codeine on an empty stomach.

    The only potentiation SWIY should use is a couple tums before the codeine and benadryl, all others like GF juice and tagamet will waste the codeine.

    Once your tolerance gets up, never take more than 400mg at a time because more than 400mg is pissed out and wasted.

    And again, I highly suggest learning to use the search engine on this site effectivly, it will save you a lot of time and you are almost always guarenteed to find what you are looking for plus a lot more.

    Re: Should codeine be taken on an empty stomach?

    My Dalek will starve himself for 2-3 hours before drinking codeine, during his high he'll have a bit of chocolate and after the 2-3 hour mark of administration he'll fix a light snack just so he dont feel so hungry.
    Althoug there has been a talk recently about eating lots of food to make the high last longer HERE



    Swim felt silly asking about rectal codeine , but would swiy explain the preperation and method behind rectal administration of codeine. A general method of cource. :)

    SWIM still needs to read up on the rules, not just on codeine information as this is the second thread incriminating the OP. As for the topic this SWIM finds codeine works the same each time minus adjustments for tolerance. Empty stomach does cause it to work faster for SWIM.

    I don't understand why this board uses "SWIM" when the "I" can be interpreted to mean "is" and not "isn't", but whatever. SWIsn'tM has always found that there is a faster onset when on an empty stomach.

    SWIM has used potentiators in the past the make the effects of the codeine last longer and worked very effectively for her!

    She used to take 2 x 5mg Lopermide and 2 anti sickness tablets 30-40 minutes before her due time to take the codeine, with a glass of grapefruit juice and she'd still be feeling the effects 10-12hrs later. It meant that she didn't have to be taking so many codeine and was able to cut down on dosage this way.

    It may not work for everyone but SWIM definately found this method very good! There are many good threads here on DF regarding potientiating codeine! Here is one for starters ...

    Good luck and keep safe! :)

    swim thinks they work better on an empty stomach, but sometimes swim's stomach wouldn't agree with this and a lot of burning would result from this, but swim is starting to find out perhaps the tums should have been taken before the pain (and the pill) anyway...hmmm a lot more reading this swim must do since finding this site :thumbsup:
