Hi Tech Guaifesesin Cough Syrup
“Sizzurp” — an intoxicating concoction of codeine cough syrup, soda and candy — is mostly associated with rappers who sing about it, offer recipes on social media and have sometimes suffered its negative medical consequences.

Codeine is an opiate used to treat pain, as a cough medicine, and for diarrhea . It is typically used to treat mild to moderate degrees of pain. Greater benefit may occur when combined with paracetamol (acetaminophen) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aspirin or ibuprofen.
