Over-the-counter medicines containing codeine will be upscheduled from 1 February 2018, the TGA announced this week.

In response to the decision, several readers have voiced their concerns regarding MedsASSIST.

And consumers groups have come out saying that the decision to upschedule codeine medications highlights the need for more effective pain management services.

Meanwhile, the RACGP has said the rescheduling decision will save lives.
