Taking codeine daily. What are the efects on the organs / body?

Posted , 3 users are following.

hello. I take solpadol 30/500mg daily. I am not a very high user. I only take perhaps 4 daily. but I have read a lot of forums on here of people who take codeine and have around 40 plus tablets a day! I would love to know what you experience whether you get any pains in your body due to the high consumption? I have tried to look online for the answer but cant find anything. I have read that taking codeine a lot can cause kidney damage and other symptoms but how many tablets do you have to be taking for that to happen? surely 40 plus would be doing that?. it would be great if anyone had any in depth symptoms or effects on their organs. I am not talking about withdrawal symptoms. purely effects of the tablet in the system and organs.
