Avoid Drinking Green Tea and Codeine

by Keryn
(New Zealand )

I used to be an avid green tea drinker. About 15 cups a day.

I had to have minor surgery, which my doctor gave me codeine tablets to take when I got home. I took the codeine tablets with my green tea.

Within the hour I was in hospital with excruciating pain through out my body.

As it happens, green tea and codeine don't mix well together an my body was shutting down.

I stopped taking green tea until I had taken the last if my codeine tablets.
