  5. Can codeine cause depression?
Asked: 2017-11-21 19:07:55
Prescribed codeine cough syrup after getting terribly sick. I feel depressed ever since I started taking the prescription and Ive never experienced depression before. Is the depression stuff from the codeine?

Use of codeine can cause a disruption in neurochemical processes and can cause depression.

Depression is a common symptom of codeine abuse. Unfortunately, it can last for years even after abuse has ended.
