    You might want to read the rules before posting again otherwise I get the feeling your stay here will be quite short.

    Anyway, assuming you aren't planning on doing anything illegal I am compelled to ask why? You do realise that stuff is just codeine (sweet codeine) with promethazine, an antihistamine available OTC in most countries with, AFAIK, no recreational value?

    It has some recreational value to the opiate naive patient. The whole think about it is more of a culture thing. In Houston where unfortunately some of the rap artist have made it big its almost completely impossible to get it.

    swim grew up in Houston. The prices for this purple drank(codeine with promethazine) have tripled since the explosion of rap artist. No they were not the ones who discovered it but they were the ones who ruined it. At least in Houston.

    If sally remembers correctly the last time she tried to get promethazine in Europe it was in belgium and they no longer had it avaliable a chemist had to make it from scratch for him. She has very interesting pictures of that process. Not sure on the whole uk thing though.


    and no dxm is not drank. And any combination of codeine promethazine and dxm is considered shit.

    It is the whole vibe in houston. Cheap housing and relatively high paying jobs has created the 4th largest city in the states. This causes people to want to just chill out and block out the fast pace of the city.

    Promethazine works as a sedative. Purple drank or syzzurp is like above promethazine and codiene couch mix. Technically swiy could do a CWE on tylenol containing codeine and mix it with jolly ranchers and drink it and it would give similiar effects to purple drank, but the promethazine does add to it. Also as a potentiator.

    Yellow tus or tussin is actually tussionex and not robotussin. Tussionex contains hydrocodone and a antihistamine chlorpheniramine, most cough medicines do contain antihistamines.

    You can't. You'll need prescription cough medicine containing codiene and promethazine. I've been trying to make some sizzurp for a while it obviously isn't a big thing over here in the UK so it's basically impossible to buy prescription cough medicine on the street.

    Dont even bother, all it is is codeine with promethazine to prevent nausea. It's way over priced, and way over rated. Rappers think its the shit cuz it's easily mixed with a drink & therfore easily concealed, but it's not the shit; it's a rip off. All it is, is a cultural thing associated with rap music. Its going to give SWIyou the same effects as codeine pills which are way cheaper. SWIMs advice: dont buy into this syzzurp bull shit.

    Promethazine is not really strong, SWIM was once prescribed for a cough and an allergic reaction SWIM had from something SWIM ate, SWIM listens to Lil Wayne and hears about the promethazine so SWIM decided to make a drink, With a little Vodka added, Juice, and Jolly ranchers... It was not much of a great feeling... SWIM does not advise anyone to do anything like this... its just not worth it. its illigal if you don't have a script that's all..

    promethazine is over the counter in the uk, last i heard. mildly sedating antihistamine--but strong enough to be prescription-only in the US, not only that, but it's a CIV controlled substance, like valium, xanax, & other benzos. a very effective anti-emetic (anti-vomiting drug).

    codeine is just plain old codeine.

    i think the normal ratio of codeine to promethazine is roughly 30mg codeine to 12.5 to 25mg promethazine.

    obviously when abused, the doses are typically higher...codeine is taken on a scale of more like 120mg with phenergan (promethazine) somewhere around 50mg.

    making sizzirup is useless when the pills can just be mixed together. the only reason for this 'purple drank' mixture in the US is because of the highly available codeine/prometh cough syrup, and the fact that doctors prefer giving this out to say hydrocodone syrups (hycodan, tussinex, etc).

    in some countries (esp. African nations, as reported by media in last decade), this combo of codeine with prometh has been taken by heroin addicts when they have no access to heroin.

    understand that this combo can be extremely sedating. although small doses of prometh is considered only mildly sedating (specifically only mildly euphoric or enjoyable), kicking up the doses will almost definitely result in deep sleep.

    here's a quote from wikepedia regarding the combo's availability in the UK:
    be very careful and do NOT take codeine with paracetamol for recreational purposes. this is toxic to the liver and kidneys and causes kidney FAILURE (death) over time. very dangerous. very VERY dangerous.

    Codeine is roughly 10% the potency of Morphine/Oxy so I would recommend a starting dose of 100 mg for a completely opioid naive individual. The best solution by far would be to get Codeine Linctus- which contains no extra ingredients and therefore far less risky- but many pharmacies refuse to sell this product due to abuse considerations. Ask a pharmacist in a small independent shop, you have no chance in the big chemists e.g. Boots. Do NOT use effervescent Co-codamol ,etc. without a CWE. This is potentially FATAL. All codeine pills OTC in the UK except for Nurofen Plus, Solpadeine Migraine and Cuprofen Plus (Ibuprofen/codeine) and Codis 500 (Aspirin/codeine) contain Paracetamol and therefore must NOT be used in higher than recommended dose without a CWE. I know of no preparation which would dissolve in a drink except for Paracetamol containing ones.
    As for Promethazine, once again a small chemist is your best bet... ask for PHENERGAN elixir if you really want to make a Houston style sizzurp. You could buy this and codeine linctus together, as Syrup has a low profile in the UK and chemists are unlikely to be suspicious. If you just want the same effects, you can get Sominex tablets and pop 2-3 of these with the codeine linctus/soft drink mixture. This is more expensive per dose of Promethazine but far more widely available (packs of 8 are on open sale in all chemists.)

    Don't use effervescent tablets at all, as they contain insane amounts of sodium per tablet, which in recreational doses, will fuck you're kidneys royally, CWE or no CWE

    drank price here in saytown to houston is now up way higher for just a fluid ounce . activis is the commercial company that wuz makin tha pints of syrupp but as other swimmers said prices have quadrupled its liquid gold. boys fiend for it. plus if u aint a real drank sippa you could have a sample (what us tx boyz call a skee taste) and be misled into buyin k-ro. k-ro is corn starch that used to be colored purple. either way sum ppl try to "cut" the drank with that k-ro to make more money. now that its commercialized its harder to find because doc's are gettin in trouble for handin out scripts to ppl without the proper diagnosis. theres no way to make your own drank unless you got liquid codiene and phenegrin or promith (same thing) either way moderation is the key rest in peace to all tha falllen soldiers from tx due to that drankski

    ^^ It's a good idea to read the leaflet that comes with any OTC medication. You can also have a look at the packet these pills came in. Some brand name medications have different ingredients in different countries. Sominex in the UK market one product with Promethazine Hydrochloride, and there is also a herbal product with the same brand name. Which are you referring to? DF is an international forum, my own preference is to use generic names for drugs rather than brand names.This helps to avoid confusion.

    What sort of dose are you contemplating? If you are a new or recent user of codeine, and if you have little or no tolerance, a dose as low as 30mg might suffice. Promethazine seems to be a favoured method for potentiating the effects of codeine, and I have found it to be effective in doses of 10-25mg. Be aware that it exaggerates the sedating effect of this drug, which can be hazardous. It would also be advisable to avoid alcohol.

    I have the sominex with Promethazine Hydrochloride. Im a new user to Codeine but have been using herion on and off for over 8 months now and seem to have a pretty high tolerance to that. I was thinking to take 2 sominex and 3 codeine.

    All I can say is that I never take more than 60mg of codeine, with about 25mg of promethazine. Having said that, my use of opiates/opioids is occasional with zero tolerance.
