Lil Wayne - Addicted to Codeine?

Sizzurp

Sippin on syrup, lean, purple drank – whatever you call it, drinking codeine and promethazine containing cough syrup will get you high, but it's also dangerous and since codeine is a narcotic, it's pretty addictive. Addictive enough, in fact, that if you sip enough of that syrup, you could end up going through a heroin withdrawal like period of detox.

Made famous through southern screwed and chopped hip hop music, and centralized out of Houston, syrup killed rap artist Pimp C last year, and Lil Wayne has admitted to a serious addiction to the drug.

Getting High?

Sippin syrup will get you feeling pretty good. Codeine is an opiate, similar to other notable opiates like heroin, morphine, oxycontin or vicodin. Codeine happens to work well as a cough suppressant, but like all other opiates, it also works to control pain, and notably, to make you feel very good.

Codeine, when taken in larger than recommended doses will create feelings of contentment, euphoria, relaxation, sleepiness and well being.

Promethazine is an antihistamine, and also a CNS depressant. Promethazine works to increase the potency of the codeine. Promethazine mixed with codeine gets you higher.

Users generally mix a small amount of the cough syrup together with sprite, soda or fruit juice, and often a hard candy like a jolly rancher as well. The drink is slowly sipped leading to a sense of contentment, and well being. In larger doses, euphoria and un-coordination can result. The drink is sometimes called lean because of the way people on syrup tend to walk.

Medications That Don't Mix With Sizzurp

  • Other narcotic pain medications, such as hydrocodone, tramadol, morphine, fentanyl, methadone, heroin and many others.
  • Alcohol
  • Antihistamine (chlorpheniramine – azatadine – brompheniramine and others)
  • Sedatives (seconal, Solfoton, Luminal, Amytal etc.)
  • Phenothiazines
  • Anti depressants
  • Any medications that warn of drowsiness or sleepiness.
  • Many others

What is it?

Certain brands of prescription cough suppressant work through two active medicinal ingredients – codeine and promethazine.

Codeine is a derivative of morphine, and an opiate, and promethazine is an antihistamine. When the two drugs are taken in large quantities, both medicinal ingredients interact with one another to increase the potency of the high. As both are CNS depressants, taking the drug in large enough quantities can lead to respiratory depression, a slowing of breathing, and in severe cases, a stoppage of breathing and an overdose death. (The cough syrup is not dangerous when taken as directed, although because of its CNS depressant qualities, it should not be taken with alcohol or other CNS depressing medications.)

Addictive?

Codeine, like all opiates, is very addictive, both psychologically, and physically. If you use codeine and promethazine cough syrup for a couple of weeks, every day, you will become physically dependent on the drug. If you become physically dependent on the drug, you will need to take it every day, or more than once a day, just to keep the sickness of codeine withdrawal and detox at bay.

Although codeine is not as potent or addictive as heroin, the addiction and withdrawal symptoms share many similarities to a heroin addiction and withdrawal.

If you abuse codeine and promethazine cough syrup too regularly, you will get addicted, and getting addicted to opiates is no fun at all.

Overdose?

In large doses, you can die.

If you take it recreationally with certain other medications, you also risk an overdose.

If you use it recreationally, and you suffer from certain medical conditions, you could suffer a fatal overdose.

Opiates are central nervous system depressants. Promethazine is also a central nervous system depressant. They both slow you down, which is part of why people enjoy taking the drugs, but also why they can be quite dangerous.

These medications will slow down your breathing. If you take them in high enough doses, your breathing can slow down so much that you die from it.

If you take these medications with other CNS depressant medications (like other prescription pain killers, alcohol, certain anti depressants etc.) the addictive and cumulative effects of the medications can result in an overdose. And an overdose can result in death. Abusing codeine and promethazine recreationally is dangerous, but abusing it recreationally while taking other medications is very risky.

Pimp C died in his sleep after taking codeine and promethazine. He had sleep apnea which interfered with his breathing, and when combined with the respiratory depressive effects of the medication, killed him.

Regular users of the drug will develop a tolerance and need to take ever greater doses to get high. As you take greater doses of the CNS depressing medication, your risk of overdose increases.

Overdose Deaths

  • DJ Screw
  • Pimp C
  • Big Moe

Withdrawal?

If you play for too long with codeine and promethazine, you will pay the price of a very uncomfortable detox and withdrawal period when you try to stop.

Withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Restless legs
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Anxiousness
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle aches
  • Others

Withdrawal pains will last from a few days to a week, and can be very tough to overcome without some help.

Cough syrup doesn’t seem as scary or serious as heroin or even oxycontin but the withdrawal period is rough, and you will probably need some help to get off.

Withdrawal Options

To get off, you can

  1. Go cold turkey
  2. Wean yourself off
  3. Get into an opiate substitution program – like methadone or Suboxone.

A cold turkey detox is fastest, but toughest.

Weaning yourself off the medication can work, and if you have the discipline, and are in no real rush, can be a reasonably effective way to get off the drug. The key to weaning down off of codeine and promethazine is not to hurry. Try going down by 10-20%. Reduce your daily dosage by 10-20% and wait until that feels ok before attempting to again reduce the dosage.

A good tip is to have a trusted friend or family member control your access to the medication, to ensure that you actually stay on course with your daily dosage reductions. Have a friend (preferably a sober friend) mix the drinks for a while.

The last option is to participate in an opiate substitution program, like methadone or suboxone (buprenorphine). These are medications that you take instead of the cough syrup. They will keep you from feeling sick, but will not get you high. You will gradually need to reduce your dosage off of these medications.

Be careful

Opiates are fun. They feel good and they are seductive, and it's so easy to get sucked into an addiction.

It doesn't take long at all, and before you know it – you're a junky, and once you are, getting off is tough.

If you're not yet addicted, make sure you stay that way. If you plan on continuing to use codeine and promethazine recreationally, make sure you don’t get high every day. The more often you get high, the greater your risk of addiction.

If you’re thinking about experimenting with a little purple drank – wondering what all the fuss is about – make sure you understand the risks, and think hard about whether or not it's worth it.

how much would you suggest for somone's first time?"


leanboifrmseattl 6 years ago

noname- First time: just start out w/ 2-4 oz.'s; throw in styro cup (or whtever kind u want) & fill up w/ any drink you want- dose'nt matter- but i & most every one choose sprite & most important: SLOWLY sip. Its not lean tho UNLESS PROMETHAZINE aka PHENEGRAN comes w/ it mixed together in the same bottle (names: pro- em?; prodeine,i just made that last 1 up but it may be what it goes under in some states). Since im a 4 pint a day sipper- believe me, i know. I hate hearin' 'bout dudes (but mostly females) sip to quick and that's that. Usually only for baller types (dealers) and those who sell it. Pretty rare, that's how we wanna keep it tho, & $$$expensive$$$. Hope my tips help at all! deezyweygint@yahoo.com for n e more questions, just please always TRY & be careful.

The good thing is that Lil Wayne already went through an intensive rehabilitation. This is not a good part of his life but he still has a following because he has the ability to give what his fans want to see and hear.

Warning: Being on this "syrup" for 20 years due to Pneumonia then tolerance e.g:( before this was so popular). I agree it always tasted yummy and would often just have it for dinner, but never mixed it with soda. I would have it straight and have a glass of perrier or pelligrino. My tolerance was so high I was using 2 pints in a week, or less. I used for sleep as that is the primary side effect: sedation. I got off by titrating and am so thankful as it is very addictive, even if used innocently like in my case for a double Dx. of pneumonia/valley fever. I advise any of you to NOT take this as a recreation drug, as it turns into a lifelong habit. I had a GP Doctor who gave me a pint with 5 refills (the max) as I was using for a medical condition, albeit turned into an addiction I stopped over 7 years ago and do not miss it. My decision to get off as was a slave to it.

Ironically was in ER as had back surgery and they gave me Dilaudid/promethazine via I.V. (unknown to me) but was so drowsy I asked what else did they give me with the dilaudid? It was promethazine, OMG it took the pain away but instantly felt the euphoric high even in that much pain. I said to tell me next time what else they are putting into I.V.

It's a great drug when used for medicinal purposes, otherwise steer clear away from it as is very dangerous. I am an RN now and realize how dangerous these meds can be.

BE CAREFUL....Life is so valuable and precious.

Thankyou for this page. I am a recovering alcoholic and been sober for 8 years when I had to undergo 4 surgeries in a short time. I became low tolerance to the physical pain and the codeine was the answeres to the pain but gradually and very suttle it was the answere to emotional pain aswell. Phernergen and painkillers have been a battle to get off, harder than alcohol. With alcohol there was instant evidence of its wrath. Painkillers just slowly took away my life bit by bit. This is nothing to glorify. Addiction comes in many forms, pissing up, shooting up. No addiction is more hard core than the next. Its not a competion. its a personal thing of deep lonliness and terrible isolation. The great remover of everything good in my life. My spirit was gone and I hope no one has to end up the way I did. Thankyou for this site.

Say folks, it's not the promethazine that jacks you up, it's the codein in it, the promethazine does help relax you a little and it's also prescribed for nausea, which is a side affect of taking to much of an opiate, therefor your able to drink more codeine that would normally make you sick, codeine is a weak opiate, I have used drank before but was so amazed on how many people were uneducated on it, they charge rediculus amounts of money for it and I could buy 100 mg morphine for 5 a pill, that's like a whole pints worth, it's more like your paying for the " brand name" . I knew this one cat who wouldn't take a pill but would sip on that drank and pay so much for it, opiates are very addictive and I have been hooked for about 10 years, my homeboy died from it and were loosing all the great rappers from it and people need to understand that it can take anybody, doesn't matter how smart you are! So please be safe with it, if you try it, you will more than likely want more, just pace you usage to where your not doing it everyday, you could do it on the weekends and be good. Withdraws from it are soo bad, it's like the flu * 100 with depression and restless legs, the squirts every 15 min, it's not worth all that, I am trapped to my addiction and I try so hard to manage but i have to live my life around the drug. Educate yourself!

Say dlkdogfromdanortheast, first of all, you need to lean how to spell, second, how you gonna dis folks for informing people about the dangers of this drug? Thus white trash motherf***** is trying to educate people so maybe someone that reads this will be educated enough to know that it's very addictive and to be careful trying the shit! I hate racist people like you talking bout, you ain't addicted but your all about that shit, you shouldn't have dropped out in 3rd grade homeboy!

I really wanna try Sizzurp. But I don't know if it's with it. Im taking Xanex right now and want to know if that would be a deadly combo with the drank... I've also been taking 30mg oxycodone aka Roxys for about 8 years now i started off taking vicodin and then moved on to 10mg percocets and then to the Roxys I started with 1 or 2 every other day till I got to my high or point or should I say low point and was up to 25 - 35 Roxys a day. Might sound crazy believe me or not but it's true kicking that was that hardest craziest thing I've ever had to do in my life but with the support of my girl and most importantly the MIRACLE DRUG SOBOXIN I'm 5 months clean. I haven't touched an opiet since and everyday in the paper some kid overdoses on the roxys especially where i live Staten Island NY right now that is the OD capital of thr world! So I kno I sound like a moron asking about the Sizzurp but I just would love to try it 1 time. Is it really that good? Is it worth it? Someone hit me up with a response please I'm open to all opinions. Thanks

Been sippin hard for a year now.. About 4oz a day over a few hours.. Mixed it with sprite the traditional way. Never had any trouble while drinking it heavy but recently began to slow down. To one or two cups a day. Basically a liter with 2 ounces. Instantly developed this pain in my stomach that hurts so bad, I cant sleep..cant eat, cant shit & feel like yacking (vomitting). Got me feeling like a dopefiend. Was hurting 3days straight usually around bedtime when i slowed the drinking syrup down, now im going cold turkey.. Never thought I would say this but syrup is really addictive, withdrawals are painful & drag for hours.. Lots of my friends who have drank for years told me that it would be a problem to get off.. Im now suffering the consequences. The good thing is that I know my body & know I will be making a change.. R.I.P. Boe/gerber/lean.. another good thing is that its scarce so its not readily available unless your me. The Bad is making drinking syrup a habit. My opinion on it is try it if your curious but be very aware of what your doing & do not keep it up.. Once, twice even a few weekends in a row is fine but once you start sippin everyday just know that it will be a painful detox, if you don't die from it first. Rite now just the Cali Weed for me while I shake this. didn't ever think I'd be reading/commenting on a syrup article, but its good knowledge. The general public is really not too informed or concerned with urban epidemics but it's real. It's easy to get the shit too if you really want it. It's after your hooked, fighting the feeling & physical pain when you finally realize its so easy to pollute your own body/mind. Now either live with it or go thru the bullshit & hope that's its not too late to do the right thing...

Believe it or not,i've been zippin prometh since the early 90's. It was just unknown ordinary cough syrup.

PLEASE TAKE TO HEART: i was sippin for my third time, 16 once of sprite, 5 jolly ranchers, 2 onces of the Promethazine and Codeine(which was the same amount the first two times). i was just about finished drinking, when i took two pulls of the blunt, and as i stood up i started to get dizzy, my ears started ringing, i could hear nothing but the ringing, my vision was in and out, i couldn't stand straight i started wobbleing and some how found my way to the bathroom...i was numb all over and i had to remind myself to breath....I told myself this is it and there was nobody around to help me and i could not even move anymore.....I BEGAN TO PRAY, CALLING OUT GODS NAME, and thinking about my son, my mother and how hurt they would be...Then i asked for another chance in Jesus name.....AMEN..and i lived to warn you......PLEASE LEAVE IT ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks this was good info. i've always played recreationaly with perscript and other drugs but always stayed away from opiates cause i never really liked the high. but recently had a bad tooth ache and got my hand on some codine and lets say the tooth ache was really bad so i went a bit to much on codine tablets mixed with some xanax to sleep and had a bad bad rough overdose. to much drugs can be fun but will lead to some serious side effects . this codine overdose was no joke

I realised during my withdrawl that its you and your own decision what makes life hard or easy. If you want to make it hard it will be hard and you will never get over . But if you want it easy and you think for better and you choose to be better and go ahead for it, life suddenly becomes super easy and super better. It is very nice and good to live a beautiful life and your past will never haunt you. I live a beautiful life now,Thanks to Narconon.
