    Cough Medicine High?

    A good friend of mine told me the other day she has been having "some fun" with cough medicine..

    To be honest, I'm a bit worried about her doing this..

    Anyone know what kinda harm can come out of something like this?
    I collect electronics! If you have any that do not work, I might be able to help you.. OR not.. lol

    Looking to video chat if anyone is interested.

    i'd be worried. that can cause serious issues. i know it was a huge thing in the 90s to do robodosing (robitussin overdosing) to get high. :/

    Its becoming a popular recreational drug. "Purple drank"--mixing cough syrup, 7up & jolly rancher.

    Robo-tripping, so called due to the propensity of users to go for Robotussin, can be deadly. If not lethal, it can cause irreparable harm to organs. Just because something is OTC does not mean it is safe and will not kill.

    I'd be concerned about such a friend, too. Let her know your concerns for her re: Robo-tripping. She may not seem as though she is listening to you, but your words may get her attention. What you say may direct her to make a change.

    Let us know what happens after you two talk.

    wow! that sounds like a great mixed drink. some grape vodka instead of the cough syrup...

    P.S. You asked about specific harm. Robo-tripping can cause brain damage, sezures and death.

    The cough syrup in the purple drank is prescription strength cough syrup and has codeine in it, and not Robitussin. One of my cousins is into doing all those crazy things & I had asked him about that before. He said its easier for females to fake the cough & get the prescription.

    I've never tried..don't plan on it!!

    Many years ago I was riding my bike to a rally bbq and I seen this older dude drinking cough medicine by the bottles in his camping area

    He came over to my site and asked if we had any cough syrup I said no and offered him a cold beer and a hotdog and he took the beer drank it quickly then offered me a bag of pills I said no thanks he said he loves that cough syrup

    He was poping pills with alcohol to me that sound's crazy but back then cough medicine was very different
    Oddly he did this for 3 days enough to give me a ulcer lol
    He probably liked the high or euphoric feeling he got from the ingredients in that cough medicine , back then cough medicine was easy to buy .

    I was just there enjoying our weekend / monday it was fun with just hotdogs and beans / beer rofl
    Those were the day's

    Good memories of old rallies
