Brief Answer:
Serious interactions

Detailed Answer:

I would not be able to comment on the XXXXXXX pods. But literature is available about the interactions between the individual constituents (morphine and codeine)

Using morphine / codeine or both together with divalproex sodium may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people reported experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. If I as a doctor suggest both of them I would admit and constantly monitor them in a hospital setting. In developed countries typically pharamcists reject the prescription in OP setting or call up the doctor about it.

However serious respiratory arrest and CNS depressant effects were observed.

Hope this makes you aware of the serious affects and prevents the use of them simultaneously. You should contact the primary doctor about the other significant problems bothering you instead of taking XXXXXXX pads.
