  5. Are pain pills opiates?
Asked: 2018-06-13 03:32:45
My husband is telling me I should let him take codeine pills for the pain he is experiencing since its not considered an opiate. I need to know if my husband is lying to me.

Pain pills are opiates including codeine. It is addictive and gets a person high. I'm glad you asked for information elsewhere and best of luck.

It’s a synthetic opiate, but unfortunately ya codeine is an opiate. Is it possible he isnt trying to lie to you and just doesn't have the facts straight?
