"[T}he drug codeine. It comes in pills to relieve pain after operations or tooth extractions, in syrups to soothe coughs. In 1983, the most recent year for which such figures are available, codeine was the key ingredient in 65 million prescriptions dispensed by American drugstores; among all the new prescriptions filled, Tylenol with codeine was number one.
