As a narcotic pain-reliever and cough suppressan it can be combined with Paracetamol or aspirin or other Non Steroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen for more effective pain relief. It is also an opiate to treat mild to moderate degrees of pain and can be addictive so dosages should be taken carefully to avoid severe side effects.
