Mixing Promethazine/Codeine syrup w/ Vicodin safe?

SWIM has encountered promethazine/Codeine syrup numerous times before. But SWIM was wondering if the combination of 2 Watson 349 vicodin pills (hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5mg/500mg) is safe to be consumed with 3/4 oz of prometh/codine? 1oz contains 60mg/codeine, 37.5mg/promethazine. SWIM sips on syrup usually w/ 1oz in the Sprite mixed drink. Its the combination safe?

Those are very safe amounts. You'll be fine.

Re: Mixing Promethazine/Codeine syrup w/ Vicodin safe?

I am sorry to disagree with the poster above. While the information they are giving is not completely and horribly wrong, different people have different reactions to different substances. I guess as a rule with the average person, it's not fatal. However there are things to take into account. A person's tolerance, the chemical balances in the brain and individual has, the weight, age, and the person's reaction to the medications not just together but also combined.

All are CNS depressants, all are downers, and that promethazine is some nasty stuff if the person has a low tolerance, lower weight, and when combined with opiates and other downers.

The amount used for the "syrup" even though sipped COULD be dangerous. I am NOT saying the person will die, I am saying it does not sound safe to me.

This is no offense to the poster above me. It is possible this amount of substances can be safe for different people. Also, the poster does know what they are talking about when they say they are safe amounts, it's just the individual factors that makes me disagree.

*NOTE: If someone can let me know how I am wrong, I would appreciate it as I am just trying to be on the safe side, not trying to use scare tactics or disagree because it's fun.

For sure, I would not personally even with medium tolerance add any kind of downers to an already heavy "syrup". Please do not do that.

Re: Mixing Promethazine/Codeine syrup w/ Vicodin safe?

Swim would like to know how this is considered a "heavy" syrup?

Let swim see, it was read as 3/4 oz of promethazine/codeine which is less than 60mg codeine/37mg promethazine + 10mg hydrocodone. How in the world is that not a safe/small dose? Considering that amount, your being overly cautious. Swim wonders how you feel about the strong narcotics?
Now that the OP has clarified the amount, I think better debate can ensue.

Re: Mixing Promethazine/Codeine syrup w/ Vicodin safe?

No, no debate needed, I actually read it wrong. I was reading it as what I know the "regular dose" to be, and did not even see the 3/4 oz.

Also, as I said, it's not that you are wrong as much as because of the many different factors regarding mixing downers and CNS depressants, even in small doses, I would want to be overly cautious. When people take small amounts and it seems to not do the trick, or barley make it what they want, usually there is added doses.

I can say you win this debate if there were one, I just wanted to point out the factors and why I personally would error on the side of caution. It was not meant to challenge your knowledge.

Levelheaded you are. Swim can understand your position.

Re: Mixing Promethazine/Codeine syrup w/ Vicodin safe?

From my cats personal experience she has started with little to no tolerance and had both prometh/codeine syrup. She could have 3-4 oz syrup first then 1/2 hour later take the 10 mg hydrocodone and she personally has been fine. She is 5'9" and 130lb. Does your syrup contain acetaminophen (APAP)? Just be careful because high (over 4000mg) per 24 hour period can cause toxicity and is very dangerous for your liver. Also speaking from her experiences she get really dehydrated, sometimes with out thirst. Keep your fluids up as the combo is extremely dehydrating and has caused severe headaches or a hangover for her before.

DriftAway added 5 Minutes and 29 Seconds later...

Oh i usually drink ginger-ale (all natural Hansen's ginger-ale is the best or Reeds Ginger Beer...no alcohol) because the ginger helps keeps stomach aches away and the drinking helps keeps you hydrated.

Thanks for sharing your experience.
