  • Dirty Sprite? Purple Drank? Easter Pink? 20 ways Promethazine with Codeine impacts your health.

    Back in 2001, I was introduced to drank. I remember being in the nightspot leaning up against the wall nearly sleep. Everything was moving in slow motion.

Above the diagnosis, deeper than the patient-clinician relationship, beyond the medication cost, the patient’s belief in the medication determines the quality of the outcome. Below I dispel ten(10) conspiracy theories circulating on the internet fueling negative beliefs and perceptions about medications and poor medication adherence. Take a look…
