By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Despite recommendations against the use of codeine in children, a new study found many emergency room doctors still give the potentially dangerous opioid to kids, such as for pain and coughs. While researchers found that codeine prescriptions for children in U.S. emergency rooms decreased slightly from 2001 to 2010, between about 559,000 and 877,000 kids were still receiving the drug in that setting each year. "My colleague and I felt like this was an important question to look at to get a sense of how often it's being used in the U.S. and to heighten awareness of the issue," Dr. Sunitha Kaiser told Reuters Health. Kaiser is the study's lead author from the University of California, San Francisco.
