    swim has been prescribed some 30mg codeine phosphate and was wondering if snorting them works. swim snorted 30mg and it seemed to take the edge off his withdrawals but it may of been a placebo either way swim has 25 left and was wondering about most effective way of administration... besides plugging

    Nope..........SWIM advises SWIY doesn't snort perscription pills. especially codeine. best method would be to just swallow the pill.
    especially since codeine usually allways comes with its nasty neighbor APAP and that is definitly not a good thing to put up SWIY's nose. (or rectum) :p
    SWIM advises holding onto that pill until its time to sleep. untill then its gonna be tough sailing

    Like posted above, it's best to just eat codeine. It is more effective when taken orally than snorting it, plugging it, etc.

    bummer never mind swims going to give it a go anyway but he'll munch a few as well nothing like a double wammy codeines as weak as a kitten anyway (compared to H anyway)

    is APAP what we brits call Paracetamol? snorting a Paracetamol codeine mix (we call it
    Co-codamol) would be ludicrously stupid especially recreationally but cheers for the advice any way :)

    Insufflation (snorting) is usually used as a way of obtaining a high faster (but shorter lasting) than when taken orally, this is because Swiy's substance of choice can reach the bloodstream faster.

    Codeine however mostly metabolises to the substance that creates its effects, Morphine, in your liver. Snorting it will not deliver the substance to your liver any faster, and some may be wasted in the process. Codeine is simply more effective orally, and snorting or IVing Codeine is unnecessary and in some cases may harm the user.

    Stick to taking Codeine orally in future. There is no sense in damaging your nose when you are actually going to experience less of Codeine's effects as some may be lost in the process, and with no quicker onset due to it needing to be metabolised by the liver.

    cheers royal thats just the info swim needed

    the reason swim asked for advice and didnt take it was because swim can make his own mind up after all its just advice. someone advised swim to IV it as he would get "a much better buzz" but swim didnt take their advice either. they didnt say it was dangerous just less effective, smoking H in a spliff is less effective than chasing but they go well together, swim was just experimenting. swim can make that comparison because hes tried heroin... well swims done a little more than "try it". swim did use the search function but he couldnt find anything on snorting codeine

    heroineADDICT added 6 Minutes and 30 Seconds later...

    swim just saw this post has 300 views but only 7 posts and 3 of them are mine, guess im not the only one who wants to know if you can snort codeine

    If they're labelled as only Codeine Phosphate (and not Tylenol or any other APAP containing crap), snorting them is fine. Snorting them definitely works and yields a slightly shorter duration, slightly greater intensity high. Though if SWIY is using them to ward off withdrawal, a cat would suggest eating them.

    @others: if you think snorting pharms is unsafe then you should also be saying eating them is just as unsafe. Otherwise you've got some interesting flaws in your logic. APAP containing pills are however an exception to this since they generally contain up to and above 100 times as much APAP as the active chemical.

    SWIM has snorted codeine many a time and finds the onset faster but the high slightly dulled :( if you have a lot and your nose can take it then go for it but if not best to just eat them
