    As far as swim is concerned, qualitest is as low as you can go. Qualitest has too much of an alcohol taste to it, and for many sippers is considered "undrinkable." Swim has some activis syrup, but actually prefers hi-tech pharma syrup. Yes, activis is lauded as the best tasting syrup, but hi-tech is what swim gets from the pharmacy and he can't complain.

    Also, swim doesn't think the "thickness" has anything to do with it. The only reason people lean is because of the taste. There really are more effective ways of going about it (CWE pills, etc).

    Yes, Actavis is still made. Actavis took over Alpharma in '07. It was taken off the market for a short while, but it's been back for well over a year now. The post above pretty much sums everything up.

    Actavis is top notch, best taste by far.

    I'm sure some other generic pharmaceutical companies make it also. It use to be quite common.

    One drug they made with phenergan was Mepergan. It was a pink pill with Demerol and Phenergan. It was called Mepergan and would knock you on ones arse.

    It is such a downer type medication anyway (phenergan), anything you mix with it double the strength or reduces the amount of narcotic one needs in it. I don't think they make it anymore.

    However, you can always get phenergan 25mg or 50mg (I think) and mix it with opiates and it will increase the euphoria and nod. I'd like to take it with oxycodone or oxymorphone. Just be careful, it can nod you out to the point of no return.

    Homeboy ATM has some he never had before. Barre pharmaceuticals? Very sweet, no alcohol, peach flavor. Very thick, its good stuff.
    Also it was said promethazine is a good opiate potentiator. That makes dude wonder, Instead of mixin a drank with the rest of his syrup(like 3 1/2oz), a potentiating dose of prometh could be measured out and slugged back at once 45 min or so prior to a dose of say, Hydro/Oxycodone, and the lil bit of codeine would just be a bit of an extra kick? What do other swimmers think?

    Speaking of things they still make. How bout Paragoric, pint bottles about 70 proof. I know they did in 2000. Just curious, Promethazine w/ codeine is still on the market, this I know. But Paragoric would be a treat.

    When I was in County, some dude had it on the med cart, they let him take three good 50ml swigs. His breath smelled like alcohol to the max. So I know they mix alcohol with it.

    It is a Schedule III. Promethazine w/ codeine would probably be a Schedule V.

    Anyway, don't mean to change the topic, but Paragoric was given to this dude for cancer. He got a DUI after he drank it on the outside, so it is full of alcohol also.

    What?? Barre hasn't been seen from in at least 7+ years. Was it the manufacturer bottle with green color on it by chance? That is gold if you still have some, lucky.
