snorting them? - July 16th 2010, 02:34 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of substance use, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

It's a bad idea to tamper with drugs, you could get seriously hurt. I don't actually know with these particular drugs, but I do know some horrific things that have happened before when people don't use them as instructed..

Sidonie is absolutely right. It is really dangerous to mess with presription drugs. If you are really worried about the effectiveness or the speed your drugs will work you should talk to your doctor.

I don't know about this particular drug but I know that it is dangerous to snort anything. Our noses aren't made to take in any type of drug etc, that is why they get damaged. You can do serious harm to yourself and even disfigure your face by snorting things. Medicines are prescribed to take a certain way for a reason; to keep you healthy and safe. I wouldn't take them in any other way than you were instructed by a doctor. I don't know 100% but I doubt snorting them would make them more effective or faster.

In answer to your question, I'm not sure. But even if it is quicker, the damage to your mucus membrane would not be worth it. Nosebleeds, losing sense of smell, losing sense of taste... All things that can (and usually do) happen to Cocaine users, and things that could happen to someone snorting pills as well.

Plus, the idea of snorting can become addictive, causing you to cause further damage by moving on to drugs, or taking too much of your medications.

So overall, it'd be a very bad idea.

Cocaine users snort the cocaine because the drugs travel through different pathways so less of it will be absorbed by the liver (i.e. stronger effect, may last longer too). You wouldn't want to do this though because although they may have a stronger affect, it's not the affect that was intended. You will also get some nasal damage from snorting the medications as a side-effect in addition to other possible side-effects from the actual medications.

The route of administration is important because the same medications can be taken several different ways and each way, the person will experience different effects.

Hey there,

I've just marked this as triggering due to the topic of substances (:

I reallly don't think it is a good idea to intake your medication using this method. Drugs are designed to be taken by the way they are prescribed. Taking them any other way or through any other method can have really bad effects on your body. You should ALWAYS discuss with a doctor before you think about taking medication differently
