The Medicines Safety Assurance Tool (MSAT) is provided as a PDF document for reference. To request the spreadsheet solution of this safety tool, or for more information about this tool, to make a comment, or share a safety issue please contact email@example.com.

Codeine is contraindicated in all children aged 0-18 years who undergo tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy (or both) for obstructive sleep apnoea. Codeine is restricted to children over 12 years of age and only if the benefit outweighs the risks.
