Hi Doctor I have offered a femle aquaintance aged 40, some temporary accommodation until she finds a new premises. At the same time I have noticed that she drinks quite regularly and takes Paracetamol/Codiene while she drinks. I am concerned of the effects of this combination particularly whilst in my home. Should I be concerned. I have never experienced this type of addiction before. Should I alert my local GP. Please advise.
