The Dangers of Pharmaceutical Lean

What are the Hazards of Consuming "Lean"?

Being that lean involves the consumption of promethazine (which depresses the central nervous system) and codeine (Which suppresses the respiratory functions), the risks involved are correlated to the expected overdose effects of these drugs. The current recreational user can use up to 25 times of the recommended dosage for proper use. We outline below the hazards associated with the abuse of pharmaceuticals with lean.


Cardiac Arrest (Heart Failure)

Just like the imposed drug combination depresses breathing, it can also depresses normal heart rhythms causing the user to suffer from slowed to irregular heart beats and on extreme occasions, heart failure or cardiac arrest.


Respiratory Hazard (Trouble Breathing)

Codeine & Promethazine are the two ingredients depress the central nervous system; this means that they slow the user’s breathing and impedes the ability to transfer oxygen to the organs. This puts strain on all of the organs necessary to keep the body functioning properly.


Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

In some users, lean can cause an adverse affect called NMS. This is a neurological disorder that consists of Delirium, abnormal thinking, stiff muscles, fever, irregular heart beat, and sweathing. The mortality rates of NMS ranges from approx. 10%-20%


Addiction and Withdrawal

One of the main ingredients in lean is Codeine (Which is an opiate). An addiction to lean has similar consequences as an addiction to Morphine, Heroin, Vicodin, Oxytocin. Abuse of the opiates in lean can result in the same withdraw symptoms as with the drugs listed above.
