Items: OTC medications
Rating: 4.7 of 5 stars
As I like to do, I was scouring eBay for low-dose codeine pills & came upon one called Rokacet Plus that looked slightly decent, albeit not as good as the Empacod. Rokacet Plus contains 15mg codeine phosphate, 500mg acetaminophen & 50mg caffeine. Not super stoked about the caffeine content but I take small doses of it daily as a migraine prevention med anyway so whatever. Rokacet Plus is marketed as an over-the-counter remedy for cough, pain & fever in the Middle East. They also have plain Rokacet, which contains 10mg codeine & only 30mg caffeine & comes in boxes of 20 caplets. Thinking I might've gotten a better deal by getting those but the caffeine content may shake out the same in the end when taking more to make up for the lower codeine dose. There doesn't appear to be a simple way to extract the caffeine from the good stuff so I'll only be taking 1-2 at a time.

I paid $28.90 plus tax (international shipping included) for a box of 24 caplets. The seller got it in the mail quickly & sent a tracking number that works. It was shipped the 14th & received on the 26th of the same month, which is extremely fast for anything international. I start with half a pill because I've already taken caffeine today & it irritates my bladder something fierce. I definitely feel a bit of the codeine despite drinking kratom tea all morning, but it's mild for sure. I can see these being great for migraines & other minor pain. Certainly preferable to taking a benzo or barbiturate to deal with migraines, as that leaves me depressed af the next day. Packaging was super discreet though the inner bag says "Pharmacy" on it. Apparently had no problem getting through customs so no complaints.
Overall I give this order a 4.7 of 5 stars for shipping time, price & quality. Although I'd love if it had less (or preferably NO) caffeine, that's not the seller's fault. It still beats the big bag of nothing we get in the U.S.
