A rapid and specific liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry-mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) method was applied to confirm the presence of codeine by selected reaction monitoring (SRM). Codeine was extracted from the capsules by dissolving in sodium dihydrogen phosphate buffer (10 mM, pH=2.2) and ethanol, then made alkaline (pH=9) and extracted using chloroform. The amount of codeine in AsthmaWan was found to be 61.8 μg/capsule (R.S.D.=7.9%, n=9). Excellent resolution was obtained despite the complexity of the product which claimed to contain at least nine herbal ingredients, none of which will give rise to codeine. As a further confirmation method, LC-MS-MS is accurate and specific. The LC method has been validated for linearity, limit of detection, limit of quantification, accuracy and specificity. Greater awareness of and control over undeclared drugs in complementary medicine are necessary to ensure patients' safety.
