    So my friend has a bottle of liquid codeine. on the bottle it says Acetaminophen/codeine 120mg/12mg sol. He was wondering if he can use this for recreational use to make sizzurp? Is this possible or will it do nothing. thank you for your time !

    Is it 120mg of acetaminophen and 12mg of codeine per mL or per bottle?

    If it's per bottle than no, 12mg will not @ all be recreational.

    A mild recreational dose starts @ 90mg for some1 with a low opiate tolerance

    This product is unsuitable for recreational use due to its acetaminophen content.

    It's 120mg acetaminophen & 12mg codeine per mL or 5 mL is what I'm assuming. There is too much tylenol & too little codeine per mL or 5mL or whatever the bottle says to be safe.

    Tylenol aka acetaminophen destroys your liver.

    Yes.
    It would produce a moderate codeine high and cause a drawn out and agonising death by liver failure.

    Probobly not for swiy's level of chemistry(no dig intended just assuming swiy has about as much chemistry experiance as the average). Swim knows what medicine swiy is referring to. It is tylenol with codeine oral solution, 120mg ace/12mg codeine phos, per 5ml. This medicine is available in 4 fluid ounce(118ml) and a pint(473ml). The liquid is like a orange/red colour. It is manufactured by actavis. It contains a solution that is just about equal to tylenol #3, in the normal adult dosage(15ml) 0r one table spoon full, it contains some alcohol, 5-7%. This medicine serves no recreational purpose. It may give a little buzz if swiy were to take a couple or even three tablespoons full. Calculate the dosage though, make sure swiy doesn't exceed 1000mg of acetaminophen per every 4 hours. To directly answer swiys question, no, there is no easy way to extract codeine. This medicine swiy is referring to is actually one of the main medicines(prescription) that cause apap overdose, as many people are inclined to just gulp it back, being a liquid. Swim hopes he gave you enough info and that it helps, as swiy can tell, swim knows this medicine well. Take care, stay safe

    Just to add, abrad is right as well as I, that whole bottle has a good chance if consumed all at once of killing you. It would definatly be an acute apap overdose for sure. So be very careful.

    i remember having a bottle of pure liquid codeine (i made a post moments earlier without being aware of this post) it was amazing the way i had it... but i have never heard a way of extracting codeine from a liquid. so drinking it otherwise seems pretty dangerous to me. :s

    Ok. Swim has a problem upon getting his hands on some syrup whose composition is codeine phosphate,pseudoephedrine and triprolidine. The goal is to separate the opioid from the formulation. He thought of distillation and researched on bp for all three chems trip-186c pseudo-190c codeine-unavailable. There would obviously be challenges from the syrup base but dissolving in a non-polar solvent would do. Please advice swim as he has searched extensively and only come across literature proposing distillation with no work up to back it up.

    If my maths is right (may not be) SWIY could take 40ml of this and still be ok (less that 1000mg paracetamol) and get a dose of about 100mg codeine safely. SWIY could take this every 4 hours up to 4 times a day.

    If its just one gram or less of paracetamol to get the 100mg of codeine, that's perhaps one of the highest OTC codeine/paracetamol combos out there.

    Generally speaking the highest OTC dose is 16mg of codeine per 1 gram para/apap. There are some 12.something mg OTC's also but not sure if that's just the famous Nurofen Plus, shiniest box on the shelves. No way it could kill you. (joking)

    Using this liquid recreationally is a bad idea though. Too much temptation because 100mg of codeine might well be enough to guarantee addiction. It could give you a taste for it and best to bear in mind that this is an opiate and as such ought to be treated with great caution. If you can discipline yourself on codeine your likely in a small percentage.

    As a pain killer, perhaps something to make the difference between turning up for work, or getting out of bed due to a bad headache, backache or even a cold, this might be handy for a 'one off'.

    More for the medicine cabinet than your stash box.

    (waits for someone to ask about freezing the solution)
