    I have found 6 Co-Cadamol that I want to take some time. They contain 30mg codeine 500mg paracetamol , I would first like to know if he should extract the Codeine from them (I don't trust himself to not mess this up) I plan on taking all 6 at once thats 3000mg paracetamol , is this dangerous ? What will happen if I takes all 6 at once , 3000mg paracetamol and 180mg codeine , only tolerance SWIM can think of is taking some di-hydrocodone (idk if SWIM spelt it right , but you know what he meant) and he enjoyed that quite a lot , thanks in advance guys :)

    Large doses of paracetemol are extremely dangerous on your liver and your kidneys! I do not know about the extraction of the codeine but from what she has read she thinks it would be a waste of time on 30/500mg tablets! If a person was to take this amount of paacetemol they could feel quite nauseous! I would also like to advise that her chronic addiction to heroin started with abusing codeine in this manner! Take care!

    Use a Cold water extraction to get rid of the paracetamol, its a very easy process and will save your liver. Max paracetamol You should ingest in a 24 hour period is 2000mg (recommended maximum 1500mg).

    Please, don't let You just pop them all, use the extraction method, its a sticky.

    Yeah , I will try the CWE and even if it goes tits-up he will still have tried something new , he just didn't think it was worth it for 6 pills but it sounds easy and everything so I will give it a go. Also thanks for the warning about heroin addiction , SWIM sometimes really needs to slow down and its people like you that put him in his place. :thumbsup:

    Right... there has been some serious misinformation in above posts. People really should check facts before posting!

    To confirm: The recommended maximum safe dosage of paracetamol (acetaminophen in the US) is 1000mg per dose, every four to six hours, not exceeding 4000mg in any 24 hour period.

    There is no reason what-so-ever why one could not perform a cold water extraction (CWE) on tablets containing 30mg of codeine and 500mg or paracetamol. People successfully perform CWEs on tablets with a far lower codeine to paracetamol ratio.

    For more details of the methods involved, please see CWE - Cold Water Extraction FAQ - Links, Lists & Manuals. It's such an easy process, and makes a massive difference in reducing the potential damage to the liver and kidneys. There is no excuse for not taking such an invaluable harm reduction measure.

    Having taken some dihydrocodeine once does not mean you will have a tolerance to opiates. An opiate tolerance occurs when somebody uses opiates so regularly that their physiology changes, and they need a greater amount of the drug to feel an effect. For all intents and purposes the OP is opiate naive, and so should start with an appropriate dose - between 80 and 120mg of codeine.

    Have fun, but please be careful.

    My apologies on my post about CWE on co codamol being a waste of time! I was referring to previous articles I had read on the net (not on this forum) and they were obviously not correct! :)
