    I found some old promethazine/codeine syrup that was prescribed
    2/26/03. Would codeine degrade in a syrup or would I have to
    worry about either of them having degraded into a toxic
    substance? The bottle says to discard by 6/04 though i think that
    could just be there to help keep it from people like SWIM after its not
    needed anymore.



    It says:

    TAKE ONE TEASPOONFUL BY MOUTH EVERY FOUR HOURS IF NEEDED FOR COUGH



    120 - PROMETHAZINE/CODEINE SYR

    Generic For: PHENERGAN W/CODEINE SYR



    -------------------------------------------------



    If anyone has any idea about the concentration please tell me. I'm guessing it to be 10mg/5mL.

    Naw, Its still fine to drink. The only real risk your running is that the codeine might be a bit weaker than it was before the experation date. They wont turn into anything toxic or anything like that.

    Peace,
