quote:

Lil Wayne is in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, and we're told it doesn't look good ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.

Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.

We're told Wayne is currently "unstable," and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.

We're told several people are at Wayne's bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.

Sources say there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.

We're told Wanye's stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.

His entourage started tweeting that TMZ's report was fake:



But then TMZ followed up saying that his mom was being flown in to decide whether or not to continue life support.

This reminds me of Anna Nicole Smith's 8-hour drawn out media death.

I didn't read the thread BUT...

What is sizzurp you ask?

Sizzurp is an addictive concoction that gets the user high, made by combining prescription-strength cough syrup with sugary sodas like Mountain Dew or Coca-Cola, to which hard candies like Jolly Ranchers are added for more flavor. It's typically sipped out of Styrofoam cups.

Apparently Lil Wayne is still 4 years old.

Normally opiates don't cause seizures at all. They just depress your system until you stop breathing or your heart stops. However codeine is weird. It's not very strong, but I want to say I heard it behaves weirdly in your system once you reach the ceiling dose and your body can only metabolize so much so quickly. Also, codeine syrup usually has large amounts of promethazine, a first generation anti-histamine, but I wouldn't think it would cause seizures either. Either way, bad stuff happens when you abuse drugs too much. I'm just curious what happened.

He's a brilliant musician but he's lived a hard life and probably uses the cough syrup for its disassociation properties. It's not really about money.

Well surely there's an opiate or similar depressive that doesn't have the nasty side effects or could be metered out in measured doses? What are his options?

BlazinLow305 posted:

Just for the record, you are thinking of robotussin, the OTC syrup which causes disassociation. The "purple drink" references the codeine/promethazine mixture, which is just a really weak opiate mixed with a strong anti-histamine. So most of the effects you get from it are benadryl-like. I never understood the allure.

Probably for the street cred is my guess. No matter how lovely the high, if it's new and he heard people talking about it then he's almost obligated to give it a whirl.

The high is actually pretty strong if you sip on it for long enough. I am not a fan of it, but junkies are everywhere. The high comes on in waves, unlike heroin or morphine, which comes on all at once.

The problem I have with this story is that codeine does not cause seizures. Tramadol does, which is why ODB is dead. I am willing to bet he has been taking a benzo. A lot of drugs cause seizures. Opiates don't.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, if he's epileptic, wouldn't the stress of pumping his stomach several times be really bad? It's a thoroughly unpleasant experience.

To further clarify Robitussin by itself refers to a product containing the expectorant Guaifenesin. This will not get anyone high. However, certain forms of Robitussin such as "Robitussin DM" also contain the chemical Dextromethorphan which at very high doses can cause dissociative effects.

I'm pretty sceptical that codeine would cause seizures. It's likely some other drug mixed in with the codeine that caused them. High doses of stimulants can occasionally cause seizures. More commonly rapid withdrawl from long-term abuse of CNS depressants such as benzodiazepines or ethanol can cause seizures.

Most likely I'd guess there was some form of anticholinergic in the cough mix that he severely OD'd on. Such as promethazine or diphenhydramine.

I'm not trying to start an argument or say you're wrong, because for the normal person you'd be right. But anyone who takes any opiate on any kind of regular basis isn't going to feel poo poo from codeine and I'd assume Lil Wayne has some tolerance. Also it's an issue with dose ratio. There's more promethazine than codeine per dose, so by the time you start doing enough to feel the codeine(assuming you can) the promethazine is already loving you all up.

My bad, I didn't know there was multiple types of cough syrup you can get hosed up on. I took the varying ingredients as indication there was just one type of high that varied based on the particular drug ratios. I still think he is using this and other things seeking oblivion, though. He's a messed up guy, hope he gets it together.
