Codeine is an opioid medication and a narcotic used to treat pain. Like other narcotics, it slows down one’s breathing and causes lightheadedness and a drowsiness that addicts sometimes chase after. However, if taken improperly, just one dose can cause death. It is also highly – addictive.

Codeine is an opiate or opioid drug and is frequently used as a cough suppressant or mild analgesic. When codeine is consumed in large doses or for non-prescription purposes, however, it can have extremely harmful effects. People may easily lose track of how much of the drug they have consumed because lean is in drink form and because the cough syrup in it may be masked by pleasant or familiar flavors from soda and candy. Conclusive usage statistics are difficult to come by in part because the whole lean phenomenon is a relatively recent one. Also, as the primary ingredient may be obtained legally with a prescription, it becomes difficult to track its misuse as a component of lean. Making the trend of using lean even more complicated are the many celebrities and professional athletes who have been at the center of news stories about the drug. Their media coverage and tacit endorsement of lean use has made sizzurp a hot topic with the tweens and teens who look up to them and now think that it is safe or cool to use.
