Green Promethazine Syrup....is codeine in it?

swim friend has some green colored promethazine but doesn't have the bottle right now b/c of parental issues lol...swim knows if it has codeine in it, it will say on the bottle...but swim has 3 questions swim would like to know in advance to finding out:

1. What is promethazine? like what does it do swim knows codeine is the drug that is desired, swim heard prometh was put in for nausea?

2. Does a prescription of prometh always have codeine in it? Is prometh prescribed alone without codeine in it sometimes?

3. If codeine is always in combined with promethazine when swiy gets a prometh prescription, whats the difference between the green and, the most familiar, purple prometh w/ codeine?

Re: Green Promethazine....is codeine in it?

Promethazine is an antihistamine and is often prescribed as such. It is sometimes taken with opiates (including codeine) to potentiate their effect, as well as reduce nausea and itching. If the label doesn't say "with codeine" there will be no codeine in it.

Post Quality Evaluations:
Exactly precise and correct answer to the OP's questions.

Re: Green Promethazine....is codeine in it?

swim isn't asking for identification swiy isn't reading it right........swim is trying to figure out the difference between green and purple prometh with codeine now and how much codeine is in each....simple question about the drugs not trying to identify anything

Could simply be related to the substances in question have being manufactured by different companies...or it could be the same company that makes different concentrations and colors them differently. One won't know which unless they're labeled.

One should never rely upon the color of a substance to determine it's strength or composition(in liquids especially). Unless they see the label themselves and know for a fact that the liquid contained within is actually what it states(it's pretty darn easy for someone to exchange with other syrups).

Re: Green Promethazine....is codeine in it?

its been my experience that the green syrup contains solely promethazine while the purple syrup contains 6.25mg of promethazine and between 5-10 mg of codeine in 5mLs.


i've seen the stuff from different manufacturers, and it doesnt change... purple is the only one that contains codeine.

Re: Green Promethazine....is codeine in it?

[Mod edit by Helene - promethazine is not an opiate/ opioid. No amount of pure promethazine (i.e. without codeine) will result in an opioid effect (such as one would experience from codeine etc). Promethazine overdoses can cause comas, and so it really is not worth the risk, especially considering its low recreational value.]

The green is promethazine only. It contains no codeine lilke the red or purple colors. It will take swim more of the green to get the desired effects of prometh/codeine. Swim would suggest 90mL to access tolerance.

This would be a false statement. Red colored syrup contains codeine as well.

SmaLLtown added 1290 Minutes and 15 Seconds later...

Who the hell gave me negative rep for providing advice. Promethazine potentiates codeine. That is a fact. If swim has prometh w/codeine swim would natrually take less of a dose than only promethazine to achieve the desired effects. Vice versa. He would need more promethazine than promethazine/codeine to achieve the desired effects. It makes damn sense. Ya'll marks throwin' neg rep 4 some 'ol bullshyt.

SmaLLtown added 1000 Minutes and 28 Seconds later...

Um. SWIM absolutely knows promethazine isn't an opiate. That is understood. Now the point is swim has drank BOTH promethazine hcl syrup and promethazine/codeine. Swim is not comparing promethazine vs codeine. If swim would SIP promethazine hcl syrup the EFFECTS would be the SAME as sipping PROMETHAZINE/CODEINE but with a greater dose. BOTH types of syrup do the same damn thing , that was the point. The one containing BOTH codeine/promethazine would be taken in a smaller dose than that of the promethazine ITSELF. Again, both type of different syrup DO the same thing. That is fact.

That was addressed to this comment.
Promethazine is not being compared to codeine at all. When "desired effects" was used it was meant as a descriptive term. Both syrups contain promethazine making that a common factor. One has added codeine which is potentiated by the promethazine thus making it stronger. That IS the only comparison being made. Strength of dose on two types of syrup THAT have the SAME effect. My point was VERY misunderstood in the post. Swim's not trying to be an ass, but he wants his point to be clarified. THANKS.


SmaLLtown added 556 Minutes and 7 Seconds later...

I did think about it, and it made perfect sense. SWIM would also like to know how the hell his advice is "partially" right?

Post Quality Evaluations:
You state that the peoduct contains no codeine and go on to advise that he take a higher dose to get the effects of the nonexistant codeine?
Coorect. Take a lower dose of both substances when combining as one potentiates effects of the other.
promethazine is not an opiate - taking any amount of it WILL NOT give "desired" codeine-type effects.
Think before you post! Confusing and partially inaccurate nonsense.

Re: Green Promethazine....is codeine in it?

Green always contains promethazine only. Read the label ffs, it will have codeine listed as an ingredient if it's present.

Re: Green Promethazine....is codeine in it?

yes that sounds right swim believes you got it exactly right b/c swim seen prometh only green bottles and knows purple is the best b/c of only the prometh/codeine main ingredients...had a couple of those bottles before too

wildcat_fan08 added 1 Minutes and 57 Seconds later...

yes thank both of you.....won't let swim add to your reputation
