    SWIM thought codeine was warmer than hydrocodone and more sedating. How do SWIYs compare?

    SWIM has been unusually active in taking opiates as of late. She was high on 35mg of hydrocodone plus 100mg (?) of generic darvocet last night and felt fairly woozy, but definitely in a good way. She hadn't taken the darvocet before that and definitely hadn't added it to the hydros, but it worked out well.

    SWIM was fairly sedated and lied in bed for quite a few hours feeling quite nice, though somewhat nauseous.

    SWIM just now took 60mg of tylenol 3, a fairly small dose, in hopes of sleep and pain relief.
    She notices a very distinct "warm", happy feeling. It's more enjoyable than a vicodin high, but she has limited access to the codeine.

    But overall, yes, there's a noticeable difference between the two highs, one leaving SWIM sleepy and one leaving her feeling nice and warm.

    A friends dragon finds it funny that you ask, because this dragon wanted to challenge this himself. So the dragon 1 day took 25mg Phenergan about 25-30min before injesting 180mg pure codeine and noticed a fairly nice euphoria. A couple weeks later the dragon drank some white grapefruit juice and took 2 tums 45min before injesting 2 5mg percocets amd 60mg pure codeine and barely felt anything.

    The dragon wonders if its due to his tolerance level, he didn't feel any effect to the low dose of oxycodone. For the past few months, a well balanced mix of Phenergan (25mg-50mg) and Codeine (180mg-210mg) has kept the dragon satisfied.

    Out of curiosity, why didn't the dragon try the promethazine with the oxycodone as well?

    Promethazine synergizes with & boosts the high of opiates in general, not just codeine.

    Also, with an opiate tolerance due to consistent codeine use, perhaps 10mg of oxycodone just wasn't enough for the dragon? I don't know (meaning, don't use this as an excuse to go shoveling in 100mg of oxycodone or anything like that!), everyone's different. In addition, many say the different opiate formulations have slightly different highs, with oxycodone often being described as 'energizing' in a way (like, people feel so good they just start cleaning their house, but not in a "I just railed 10mg of Ritalin" kind of way or anything).

    So, if the dragon is accustomed to taking codeine, especially with the addition of a drowsy antihistamine such as promethazine, he's probably used to a very relaxed, somewhat noddy opiate high. An oxycodone high might feel different, ESPECIALLY if it wasn't mixed (as it usually is) with the promethazine.

    You are correct :) the dragon is very used to (and prefers) the relaxing, chilled, euphoric sensation. Back when the dragon was exploring the oxycodone variety, 1 10mg oxy (yellow oval pill) would put him in a great state of euphoria with no enhancements or additions. This tolerance was greatly built by using different mg's of Oxy and Hydro every day or every other day for several weeks/months.

    The dragon is controlling his usage better now, limiting to once a week to let the tolerance (hopefully) drop gradually.
