    I got some qualitest/actavis questions for ya. I used to live in tx where drank has been completely dried up for a couple years now (or so it seems). swim lived in cali and went to a state college out there. at swims health center at the school they gave a 4 of lean for a runny nose pretty much. when swim first got here 5 years ago it was alpharma which as u know is now actavis (not to mention the only shit swim enjoys). about a month ago I got a runny nose and went and got some drank. this time however it was qualitest. which like u said blows. I could not even drink it in soda so it was taken as prescribed. swims point of the story is that if they really are making qualitest to make people stop sippin then they did a great job. i can not fux with it at all. and it did make swim feel a lil funny when compared to actavis. so is actavis no longer manufacturing prometh?? if so could u please link whatever articles u have found on this issue. from what swim knows there is a back order for actavis from all over (prob from the gaining population of lil wayne), so qualitest got to jump in the game and sell to many pharmacys that woulda bought actavis. and the pharmacys are still waiting for more actavis. is this a ghetto dream or what? Also could u please post links or more info about how qualitest was made with the intentions of making people stop sippin. cuz the first time swim tasted it I thought the same thing. all in all I think it is a good idea that they try to put an end to syrup sippin as many have been lost to it.

    I was recently prescribed cherratussin (10 mg codeine per 5 mil, and unknown gaulfetessin) and absolutely <3's it! no anti-hystamine/anti-cholinergic brain fog for an amazing, unexpected high.

    Might have been a simple mistake homie, but gotta correct you.
    MGP(Morton Grove) prometh/codeine is purple, Hi-Tech's version is red.
    Also, I was unaware Actavis started making a promethazine vc codeine syrup(red) again because they had discontinued it during the recall.

    Some qualitest promethazine VC -codeine syrups have phenylephrine in them, even though they are not listed as an ingredient. (Very irresponsible of the drug companies)

    Yes. VC has always contained phenylephrine. The VC, standing for vaso-constrictor, is the PE.
