Global Codeine Phosphate Market is segmented, by Product, into Extracts from Opium, Synthesized by Morphine. Codeine Phosphate is an opioid based medication operative in the treatment of mild to moderate pain. The chemical make-up and action is similar to that of morphine; however, not as strong. It is also used to treat diarrhea as well as a dry or unproductive cough. It is frequentlyoptional when milder painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen have not provided relief.
It functions by assigning to opioid receptors in the central nervous system and effectively blocks the signals coming into the CNS so that pain is not conversant or at least reduced. It also has sedating effects and aids in relaxation. Codeine is an opiate used to treat pain, as a cough medicine, and for diarrhea. It is typically used for treating mild to moderate degrees of pain. It would work wonders when combined with paracetamol (acetaminophen) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as ibuprofen or aspirin.
As far as treating pain is concerned, codeine works by imitating the action of naturally occurring pain-reducing chemicals called “endorphins”. Endorphins lessen pain by combining with opioid receptors. They obstruct the transmission of pain indications sent by the nerves to the brain. Consequently, even though the pain may remain, less pain is actually felt.
Codeine is an alkaloid prepared from morphine or obtained from opium by methylation and occurs as white crystals. Codeine effloresces slowly in dry air and is affected by light. The chemical name of codeine phosphate is 7, 8-Didehydro-4, 5 alpha-epoxy-3-methoxy-17-methylmorphinan-6alpha-ol phosphate (1:1) (salt) hemihydrate and has the empirical formula of C18H21NO3·H3PO4·1/2H2O. Its molecular weight is 406.4.
