  • Codeine based medication causing constipation

    I recently injured my shoulder and have been put on 30/500mg cocodamol containing codeine along with ibuprofen. The good thing is they are great for the pain but they're making me extremely constipated. I've tried senakot tablets for a few days but they're doing nothing. Any suggestions?
