    Hey all
    ok i know this is kinda dumb. but i like asking questions because sometime ill think something is a bad idea and ill find out and its actually pretty safe. although i dont think this will be the case here.

    i was wondering if there is any safe way to inject cough syrup? obviously i'm asking about cough syrup with codeine in it. not some shit like nyquil.

    any way thanks in advance for any answers.

    No offense but is this a serious question? Even if such aforementioned syrup wasn't filled with all sorts of nasties swim wouldn't even dream(nightmare) of putting into his veins(dyes, flavorings, Etoh, polymers, pacetamol, etc.) I doubt whether he'd go down that road and suggests swiyou don't either.

    No, there is not. If you do try it and avoid the advice given here at DF then you were warned. I am sure you will barely feel anything besides the serious negative health effects. It is like when swiy took 10 TY-4 with no tolerance, not a good idea. He broke out because of to much tylonel. But lets look at what your going to inject in your veins and directly into your bloodstream more then likely.

    Some codeine.
    Manufactured dyes.
    Manufactured artificial flavoring.
    Other active ingrediants.
    Etc. and who knows what else.

    This is a dumb idea-.- If your that pressed buy some TY-4 or some vicadon OR go and buy some good opiets like a oxy 40 or some shit.

    I diden't even know there was syrups with codeine in it

    Codeine shouldn't be injected in any form, due to the risk of pulmonary oedema. Cough syrup should not be injected no matter what it contains, due to it being full of inactives that you don't want in your veins. The fact that you even asked this question worries me tbh...

    just wondering,

    Apart from codeine not being a great thing to inject (certainly not intravenously) there is the slight problem that a cough syrup might contain 15mg/5ml. Even with a 10ml syringe you are only going to get 30mg of codeine which is not a huge dose. Codeine also is a prodrug of morphine so you wouldn't get a rush since it needs to be metabolised anyway. And then of course there's the ungodly gack (I think this is the technical term) that goes into cough syrup.

    As ideas go this doesn't win a shiny prize for plans so cunning you can stick tails on them and call them weasels.

    Be well (and for God's sake don't try this. Also, don't dissolve hash in milk and try to inject that, that's another idea that doesn't win a prize)

    SWIM was under the impression codeine had to be taken orally, as it is only active when metabolized by the liver into morphine, hence injecting would be a waste (on top of the previous points).

    Even if swiy could safely and effectively inject syrup (which I don't think is a good idea ;) ) you should never inject codeine. Injecting codeine results in a massive allergic reaction. You can die from the resulting pulminary edema and anaphylactic shock...

    Stay clear my friend.
