Prometazine with codeine is a combination of an antihistamine medication that relieves the allergy related symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, cough and itchy of the nasal/oral mucosa. Codeine is a narcotic drug with moderate antitussive (cough suppressant) properties that should be avoided in childrens (<6 years) due to a high risk of develop respiratory depression as with other narcotics. Never drink alcohol while taking Codeine. Its not recommended to take it for a longer period or in a higher dose than prescribed by your doctor. You should not use this medication if you have active asthma, COPD. Take codeine with food or milk if it upsets your stomach. Do not stop using codeine suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Get emergency medical help if you have twitching, or uncontrollable movements of your eyes, lips, tongue, face, arms, or legs; tremor (uncontrolled shaking), drooling, trouble swallowing, or problems with balance or walking.

What is the difference between Promethazine VC w/ Codeine and Promethazine w/ Codeine?
I get pneumonia frequently and they usually give me Promethazine w/ Codeine 10-6.25 for my cough. This time they prescribed Promethazine VC w/ Codeine 10-5-6.25 instead. What is the difference and what does the "VC" mean?

  VC stands for the addition of a decongestant- so you have promethazine which is an antihistamine and codeine an opiod all in one. Sounds like it may work for you. Be careful with driving until you get used to their effect. It may also affect your sleep patterns.

Does Promethazine or Codeine have any traces of cocaine in it?
Some dumbass white dude at my skool keeps trying to say Purple Drank/Purple Lean has cocaine in it. I'm tellin him that all Purple Drank is Sprite, and Promethazine/Codeine Cough Syrup. So basically the question is: does Promethazine or Codeine have any cocaine? I know Codeine is a narcotic, made from opium, so I dont think it has any cocaine in it.

  No. Cocaine is stimulant, and a completely different compound extracted from coca leaves. Codeine is an opiate, synthesized from morphine which in turn is synthesized from opium. Cocaine would definitely not be in a codeine mixture.

  Why do you want this? Is it because you have a terrible cough or because you want the codein? Tell him/her the problem and the doctor will decide what you need. I'm guessing the doctor will NOT give you promethazine because that is for NAUSEA.

  Anywhere outside the US Either Mexico or Canada. Have friends?? Take a trip or call someone and have them send it. I agree with you -- it is the BEST cough syrup there is. It is the only one I use. When I go to the Dr. Office I ask him to write it for 16oz so I don't need refills so often. The co-pay is the same as a normally prescribed 4oz bottle. Good luck, and stay healthy.

Does all Phenergan (Promethazine) w/ Codeine cough syrup taste the same?
I have a respiratory infection and the Dr. prescribed Phenergan w/ Codeine for my cough. I usually get this prescribed and it has a sweet fruity taste but I went to a pharmacy closer to home this time and this one tastes very bitter. Why would it taste so different?

My Phenergan w/ Codeine cough syrup tastes like crap. Did they give me the wrong medicine?
I have a respiratory infection and the Dr prescribed Phenergan (Promethazine) w/ codeine for my cough. It's the same thing he always prescribes for me only this time it tastes very bitter. Usually it tastes very pleasant (fruity and sweet). However, the color is the same as it usually is; purple.

I went to a different pharmacy this time, one closer to home. I'm wondering if they screwed up the prescription and gave me something else instead...

What do you think?

  Is this medicine mixed by the pharmacy? If it is, the original pharmacy probably adds that flavoring to cover the bad taste. The new pharmacy may not add this flavoring, so it ends up tasting pretty terrible.

Promethazine?
Have you ever heard of someone abusing the drug Promethazine? I was wondering if it has side effects, as I think someone might have jacked my prescription. I got it for a surgery to help with nausea, and I was wondering why anybody would have a reason for stealing PROMETHAZINE?

  One reason would be for the anti nausea it gives so if you were hungover. Promethazine is sometimes used as a recreational drug in conjunction with codeine in prescription cough syrup. The syrup by itself contains 7% alcohol. The mixture of Sprite and cough syrup with codeine, which is known as "purple drank" or "Sizzurp", is popularized in the rap world, especially in the Houston area.

In The United States Phenergan with Codeine (promethazine/codeine) is a prescription medication and a Federally controlled schedule V substance due to its potential for abuse.

Buying it online is a crime although many web sites will say it is legal. You must get a prescription to obtain the medication.

  Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that is found in many over-the-counter cough medicines. Codine is a narcotic that is used as cough suppressant, pain reliever, and a hypnotic.

Promethazine is used mostly to prevent nausea. It is also used as part of preoperative sedation to prevent nausea from the other types of sedation used.

If you have both, I don't recommend using them BOTH at the same time. You may overdose.

What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
I have chronic cough and muscle stiffness and pain often. I have been prescribed everything from Tylenol 3 (30mg Codeine and Tylenol) to Hydrocodone 10mg/1000mg.

I've noticed that codeine seems quite weaker than Hydrocodone. If I take 2 hydrocodones, the same feeling takes 3-4 codeine tablets to acheive the desired feeling.

Recently, someone told me I should try Codeine Sulfate (60MG), they are small white tablets and contain no Tylenol, Asprin, or Ibuprofen. If I take 2 of these, will they be more similar to Hydrocodone or the Tylenol 3's?


What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
Repkying to first answer someone left.

Tylenol 3's and 4's are the combination of codeine with acetemetophin.

Hydrocodones (Vicodin, Lortab...etc) is the combination of Hydrocodone with acetemetophin.

Vicodin 5/500 is 5mg hydrocodone/500mg acetemetohin.

Tylenol 3's are 30mg Codeine / 300mg Acetemetophin.

Hydrocodone must be a different form of codeine that is stronger. MY main question is....What is the difference between Hydrocodone and Codeine? And where does codeine sulfate fit in the mix.

I do like your answer, it just lacks the main information I need.

  I'm not familiar with codeine sulfate vs. codeine.

I know that hydrocodone is a combination of codeine plus an NSAID. I think it's acetaminophen.

Hydrocodone will be more powerful than codeine alone, because the 2 drugs combined provide a stronger effect than either would separately. You can get the same thing from taking codeine and tylenol pills separately, 10 mg and 1000mg respectively. It's the same thing.

  yes you can safely take the two together, just be sure not to repeat the dose any sooner than four hours. You must not take more than 4000 mg of tylenol in 24 hours, and the doses must be divided or you risk liver damage.

  You can get it over the counter in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and many other countries (brand names Phenergan, Promethegan, Romergan, Fargan, Farganesse, Prothiazine, Avomine, Atosil, RhinathioL) So I would try to order it from one of the companies over there in bulk.

It's also used as an antihistamine (like Bennedryl). It blocks the effects of histamine in your body.

Promethazine treats allergy symptoms such as itching, runny nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, hives, and itchy skin rashes. It also prevents motion sickness, and treats nausea and vomiting or pain after surgery and is used as a sedative or sleep aid. (Taken off the pamphlet that comes with a prescription)

So I would go with really bad allergies that keep you awake all night.

PS they wont give you a prescription if you have high blood pressure.

Vicodin or Tylenol w/Codeine?
Well, yesterday I was trying to experiment with some painkillers, i had 4 T3's every tylenol with codeine has 30 mg of codeine in it, i had theese for a back injury i had a while back. My friend is prescribed vicodin for a dental issue, he gave me 2 vicodin, and i gave him 2 T3's. Later on I started to not feel the numbing effect so he gave me 2 more vicodin. So i had 4 vicodin and 2 T3's. After my friend gave me the other 2 vicodin i felt the high come back a little, but not very much. I did feel like my brain was scattering alot. My question is which one is more effective, the vicodin or the tylenol with codeine? I've done some reaserch and apparently vicodin has 5-10 mg of codeine in it, is this all? or is there another substance in the drug that hits hard? or is it that because i started off with taking pills with 30 mg of codeine that vicodin doesnt effect me? So this is just a curious question.


yes, it's wrong to abuse drugs, i know there are no excuses, so i guess you can tell me how bad it is if you want. I'd prefer an answer though.

  Vicodin is brand name hydrocodone/acetaminophen (tylenol). Tylenol #3 has codeine/acetaminophen. Hydrocodone and Codeine are both derivatives of opium. Vicodin contains 5-10mg of hydrocodone and Tylenol #3 has 30mg of codeine. Hydrocodone is on a mg per mg basis more potent than codeine. So it would take less hydrocodone than codeine to get the intended analgesic effect. These medications contain acetaminophen, which when used at higher dosages can be toxic to your liver. For adults, it is not recommended to use more than 4 grams (4000mg) per day.
--edit to Cindy's answer: Yes Cindy, the activity the quetioneer has posed does present some legal implications, however since codeine and hydrocodone are related in chemical structure, if the person can safely take hydrocodone, there is very little risk that codeine would cause an allergic reaction unless they were allergic to the inactive fillers or dyes in the other medication.

Two questions on medications?
The first question is for myself. Here is a list of old and new anti-psychotics. Can anyone tell me which one is the most sedating? Or, if you can't answer that, which is the most powerful?

Clozapine
Risperidone
Zyprexa
Seroquel
Solian
Abilify
Chlorpromazine
Trifluoperazine
Fluphenazine
Thioridazine
Pericyazine
Thiothixene
Fluphenthixol
Zuclophenthixol
Haloperidol
Droperidol
Pimozide

The second question is for my brother. He is chronically addicted to Codeine. He has been for a long time. He was getting high from taking Panadeine Forte, but then he got banned from getting scripts for it. Now, all he does is take more and more over the counter products that contain Codeine. The family is very, very worried. He literally takes about 40 painkillers a day. 20 Panadine 15's (contains 15mg of codeine), and 20 Nurofen Plus (Contains 12.8mg of Codeine.) He is even drinking cough mixtures that contain Codeine. We are all scared to death that either his kidneys are going to blow or his mind is going to blow. If this keeps on going, how long does he have to live?

  That sounds like a poor man's "Purple Drank". Using a sleeping pill instead of codeine in the drug you're trying to emulate will drastically increase the risk of respiratory failure. The original is dangerous enough. What you just mentioned is even worse. If you go too far over the recommended medicinal dose you run a very high risk of passing out and your lungs shutting down.

The increased risk comes from the fact that both Promethazine and Ambien can stop your breathing at high doses. You'd be taking two drugs that, individually, could kill at a high dose.

All these drugs show up on a standard toxicology screen.

When I was a child, I had a bad reaction to codeine. But I can take Tylox now. Why is this?
I didn't know until recently that Tylox had codeine in it. Tylox is what they gave me after I had my kids by c-section and is the only painkiller that has ever helped me with pain. But now I am worried about taking it when I do need pain medication because of the reaction I had to codeine as a child.

What is the difference between codeine and morphine addiction?
If someone is addicted to codeine(hydrocodone etc) and quits cold turkey,
is his/her symptoms the same as someone addicted to roughly the same amount of morphine sulfate?

And,do morphine pills contain codeine as their addictive ingredient,or are hydrocodone and oxycodone very different from morphine sulfate?

Thanks,research purposes.
thank you for your answer

  Codeine is a mild opiate, that breaks down to morphine in the liver. The withdrawals are not as bad as other opiates. Hydrocodone and oxycodone are semi synthetic opiates derived from codeine. They are fairly strong and the addiction potential is much higher than codeine. He withdrawals can be pretty bad. Morphine is the gold standard of hospitals. It's abuse potential is very high, and the addiction potential is also very high. The withdrawals can be very bad. Morphine pills contain morphine sulfate, not codeine or any other opiate. Vicodin contain hydrocodone and acetaminophen, oxycontin contains oxycodone, and a Tylenol series, Tylenol 1, 2, 3, and 4 contain differing amounts of codeine and acetaminophen.

Why can't I find effervescent tylenol w/codeine in the US?
My French MIL passed away 10 yrs ago and left a stash of Efferalgan (tylenol/codeine). I found that these effervescent tablets work so much faster on my middle of the night migraine type headaches than ordinary OTC pain relievers and regular tylenol w/codeine tabs. Why can Europeans have access to this fast acting pain relief and not us Americans. We are always deprived of the good stuff over here! What is wrong with our pharmaceutical companies over here. (many of which are European based)?

How many kinds and variations of pills do we need? I am sure there are hundreds of manufacturers out there making some form of this medication. Why not try a liquid suspension. If you have a prescription many pharmacies will make this for you.pp

  i take Tramadol daily and I have taken Promethazine with it. It may increase the effects of tramadol and the drug interactions site does say it may cause seizures but i think that is very rare. You usually have to have a history of seizures for this to happen usually. It is also associated with large doses of Tramadol, 300mg and up. The Flexeril should be fine too. 9 times out of 10 the pharmacy wont tell you to do anything dangerous but sometimes the drug interaction checker will scare you. It's always good to be cautious though, you don't want to be another Heath Ledger.

  To be perfectly blunt, it's however much your doctor prescribes to you. Any prescription will be given based on your need which can involve factors more than just weight, age, and gender and some drugs require blood work to find the appropriate dosage. Online, we would have no access to the basic information that would be required to say what dosage you would need... but moreso, only your doctor can prescribe your needed dose so whatever dose anyone here might say is moot if your doctor won't prescribe that dose for you.

http://www.drugs.com/promethazine.html points out that it's simply an antihistamine (which also can help with motion sickness)... it's not really a drug you can abuse so the highest "safe" dose would also be a moot point. The answer would be to ask your doctor how much you should be taking. Good luck and I hope I helped!

Your question is which is stronger- well the Darvocet is.

But the real question should be- what is more effective for pain.

That answer is- It depends on the type of pain and severity.

Darvocet is stronger.

switching from tylenol w/ codeine to normal tylenol?
i had my tonsils out 3 days ago and im in excruciating pain. but since it hurts so much to swallow, ive barely been able to get any food in me. i am srsly scared of getting really sick due to no food.

i was prescribed tylenol with codeine but everytime i took it (even when i tried eating with it ) i got HORRIBLE nausea after it tht dosent go away for hours...

so i stop taking the codeine and bought normal extra strength tylenol...should this be easier on my stomach or shuld i just deal with the pain til it goes away?

i would choose pain over nausea...i jus wanna kno if normal tylenol will be better on my stomach? and shuld i take it with milk?

  The regular tylenol should not upset the stomach like the tylenol with codeine does - However it will not control the pain as well as the tylenol

Second, its been three days since you have had the tonsils out and should not be experiencing that much pain - If you are I suggest contacting the Md who took them out

Are you still bleeding from the sutures any more? If you are you may be swallowing blood and that maybe what you are sick to your stomach from (another reason to call the Md)

No, I would not take it with milk, Milk will produce phlem in the back of the throat and irritate it. try tea.

  In general, medical studies of IBS during pregnancy recommend conservative treatment, including dietary changes, soluble fiber suplements, exercise, and biofeedback. Pregnancy seems just as likely to affect IBS for the better and not automatically for the worse. Your OB/GYN should be able to address all of your concerns.


Codeine is a category C drug. It can cause harm to the fetus. Research has suggested that there is a correlation between congenital defects and codeine use during pregnancy. i.e. ear, eye, cardiac, hypospadias, etc. Also, the infant becomes "addicted" and goes through "withdrawal" after birth. It is safe to breastfeed while on codeine.

In regards to Imodium sulfate; Imodium A-D has been proven safe for use during pregnancy. Check withyour Dr. on the daily dosing guide.

  The most frequent adverse reactions include lightheadedness, dizziness, sedation, nausea, and vomiting. These effects seem to be more prominent in ambulatory than in non ambulatory patients, and some of these adverse reactions may be alleviated if the patient lies down.

Other adverse reactions include euphoria, dysphoria, constipation, and pruritus.

Drug Abuse and Dependence

Controlled Substance: Codeine phosphate is a Schedule II narcotic.

Dependence

Although much less potent in this regard than morphine, codeine can produce drug dependence a.d. therefore, has the potential for being abused. Patients given 60 mg codeine every 6 hours for 2 months usually show some tolerance and mild withdrawal symptoms. Development of the dependent state is recognized by an increased tolerance to the analgesic effect and the appearance of purposive phenomena (complaints, pleas, demands, or manipulative actions) shortly before the time of the next scheduled dose. A patient in withdrawal should be treated in a hospital environment. Usually, it is necessary only to provide supportive care with administration of a tranquilizer to suppress anxiety. Severe symptoms of withdrawal may require administration of a replacement narcotic.

i'm positive i'm supposed to be on these, i wouldn't have them without a prescription from my doctor, duh, which means i'm supposed too. one of them is anti inflammatory and pain, the other is just anti inflammatory, the other is just pain, and the last is to not make me nauseous with the pain.

  Nausea is normal after any surgery because of the pain medications and the anesthesia that you go under. Take it easy for a few days, and if it doesn't get better call the dentist. The promethazine helps with the nausea, but it might not help 100%. You might also feel this way because you're not eating like you normally do. Drink lots of water and juice and eat whatever you can.

As for the salt water, use as much as it takes for the water to taste salty. It's not an exact science.

What OTC tablet is this?
I recently had my wisdom teeth pulled out. Well we were out of tylenol and advil and i dont like narcotics and i hadnt filled my script of non narc pain meds. Anyhow my good friend who is in her 50s, so not some young druggie teen,gave me some tablets that she said had codeine in them so be careful. Heres the thing she gave them to me in a baggie since they came from a big bottle. so i dont have that to look at. The tablet is rather thick and is convex with a flat ridge all the way around. It is all white, but has no other visible markings. (i did enquire with my friend what they were but she was going outa town and wasnt home to look at and wont be for 5 days!)
I know she didnt lie to me but for my own comfort id really like to find out what they are so i dont ruin my liver or god knows what.
I know its nearly impossible to identify an unmarked pill, and all drugs regulated by the FDA must be printed but that doesnt apply to OTC. I know their are otc codeine containing meds, im thinking its an acetaminophen/codeine phosphate type tablet. Can anyone think of what it may be from personal experience?

  If it's just a screening test (most likely if the doctor does it in his office), then it should just show up as an opiate. However, if it's positive he may send the sample for what's referred to as confirmatory testing. This may determine which specific opiate was detected and at what concentration.

  I dont think you should take either while pregnant. They both have a bit of narcotics in them.

I would suggest hot tea, warm saline mouth wash (gurggle, and swallow if you want), hard peppermint candies, and a saline nose spray.

Also, being that you are preg, you may want to contact your doc about your 'common' cough and cold. While it very well could be nothing more than weather change issues, if you are sick, you probably need to know.


Here are a couple links for you to look at
http://www.drugs.com/mtm/robitussin-dm.html
http://www.drugdigest.org/DD/DVH/Uses/0,3915,550389%7CPromethazine+DM,00.html



The robitussin is dextromethorphan and guaifenesin

The promethazine is phenegran and dextromethorphan


The only thing that are the same is the dm......

Bupe/Subutex Help: How long do I gotta wait? Been on codeine nonstop for months, 210 mg per day?
Let's say my last big dose of Codeine Sulfate was 90mg at high noon (pun intended). 3 tablets via oral ingestion - that's 30mg per pill. My prescriber was circumspect ("wait 24 hours" he'd say; then it's "go to suboxone[subutex].com" for all the safety info." My other doc says "U gotta be in mild withdrawal". So how long must I *really* wait before using that 1st sub-lingual 8mg buprenorphine tablet? I am "Bupe naive" -- a Bupe virgin! And I'm extremely sensitive to depression when in W/D. Any advice will be appreciated.

  Whats this now? Is there a good reason you're asking how to kill someone, you better have one.
You better not be planning something cause I will personally track you down and find out what dose is needed!
You will respect the law and others in this great nation or you will taste your own poison in a maximum security penitentiary, and believe you me, syrup won't be your biggest problem!

What does it mean when my entire left side (arms and legs, too) tingle when I cough?
Background: I am 25 years old, a non-smoker, 5'5", healthy BMI. I was diagnosed with acute bronchitis two weeks ago, given an antitussive syrup with codeine, and I thought I'd got over it aside from the occasional dry cough.

I stopped using the cough medicine with codeine last week, but now I'm coughing up mucus again. And since two nights ago, my entire left side from my neck down to my fingers and toes experiences a strange radiating pins-and-needles tingle whenever I cough. It only lasts a moment, but I'm kind of concerned about it.

Should I make another appointment to see my doctor?

  See a doctor. Sounds like a pinched nerve, which could be serious of itself. It could also be a list of other things. Be on the safe side. Call.
