I was prescribed lomotil for after having diharrhea for about a week. I found out that it contains diphenoxylate which is related to some narcotics such as morphine. To prevent abuse they add atropine to cause unpleasant effects. So I was just wondering if anybody has ever used this drug to get high and if so, is it possible to do a cold water extraction to get the atropine out?
Diphenoxylate is potentially a recreational opiate and can be used as such, however when combined with Atropine as is the case in Lomotil when taken in high doses the following adverse effects occur. Diphenoxylate is chemically similar to Pethidine (AKA Demerol)
ventricular fibrillation, supraventricular or ventricular tachycardia, giddiness, nausea, blurred vision, loss of balance, dilated pupils, photophobia, and possibly, confusion, hallucinations and excitation. These latter effects are due to the fact that atropine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Because of the hallucinogenic properties, some have used the drug recreationally, though this is very dangerous.
The recreational effects of Atropine are similar to using large amount of any of the other anti-chlolegenic drugs that act as deliriants. It should be warned that using these drug for recreational purposes can possibly induce Terrifying realistic Nightmarelike hallucinations.
As to a CWE im not sure and someone else may be able to answer this. FOrtunatly for SWIF he has very easy access to hospital opiates therefore very rarely uses CWE for anything as he can obtain the pure form. If you want to try the CWE and see if it has worked start with a clinical dose and work your way up, the effects of the Atropine should become very obvious even at slightly above clinical dosages without providing too much discomfort or danger.
These effect most prodominantly observed will be blurred vision.
also do a search for the "loperamide: sudafed of opiates" thread...if lotamil doesnt readily cross the blood brain barrier there's a few ideas in that thread which might help things work after swiy has done an extraction. great first post.
Very slightly soluble in water, so if a monkey had access to extremely fine filter paper, a Buchner funnel, and a vacuum source - it could work. Other wise the monkey should figure that anything over 2mg (milligrams) of atropine will show toxic effects.

SWIM found pills and identified them as diphenoxylate, and atropine, can swim takw a few and get same effects as talking a few percocets? Smoke it? chew? snort? swim would like to know if this drug is at all any good.
well do any swims out there know how SWim could remove the atropine? and if there is a way to sepwerate the 2 substanced, how much would I want to take and what drugs does it resemble most i.e. codein hydro oxy etc....
EDIT2: 1 tab contains -> 2.5 mg of Diphenoxylate) and 0.025mg of Atropin.
I think you mean atropine, which is a very nasty substance to be dealing with, think high heart rate and nausea. Not sure what doses would produce the nasty side effects, but I'm sure some one can answer that. Diphenoxylate seems to be similar to pethidine so it should have abuse potential, however as atropine can be fatal, wait untill someone else gives you safe dosage levels
Yep it is similiar to pethidine, and yes SWIM meant Atropine, sorry.
SWIM has done a little research meanwhile and has found out that 50mg of Diphenoxylate can get "extremely pleasurable opiate-like buzz", however, it also includes 0.5mg of Atropine, but it certainly isn't a fatal dose. Though, the lab rat has been already given the dose (47.5mg D / 0.475mg A).
SWIM is thankful for your reply.

The ability of Atropine crossing the blood-brain barrier causes the side effects.

I said how big the dose was not how it causeed the effects
A trip report would certianly be very useful in this instance
Ah SWIM is sorry again, misread the thing. The lab rat has been administred the substance at cca 22:00, the effects are said to kick in about T + 02 hours.
The rat will post the feedback for sure (if he survies).
pinokio added 187 Minutes and 50 Seconds later...
The lab rat has taken 19 pills of REASEC (Diphenoxylate). (cca50mg) and 0.5mg Atropin
0 Tolerance to opoids.
Two hours after ingestion, the rat felt something, but only a very mild opiate feeling. So the rat was given 2 pints of bear, and it went from mild to a lil. more mild, however nothing what would worth the Atropine danger. The ammount of Atropine was 0.5g -> rat didn't feel any effect of it.
Comclusion SWIM can say, diphenoxylate is just not usable for recreational purposes.

If each tablet contained .5mg atropine, and SWIM took 19 tablets, SWIM has taken 9.5mg of atropine. This is a toxic level! Cease & desist at once! 10mg of atropine is enough to cause profound toxic effects in the common SWIM. even 4.75mg is enough to cause toxic effects such as blurred vision, flushed skin, cotton-mouth to beat all, and other nasties. 10mg may cause hallucinations of the deleriant variety - seeing things that aren't there which SWIM believes truly are.
Diphenoxylate can/will cause a narcotic high in large amounts. But with that level of atropine it is plainly not worth it. Save 'em for their intended use - a nasty case of the runs.

Apparently there already is a thread about this: https://drugs-forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=21280SWIM has access to scientific filters which he uses to extract codeine... Maybe he could try to do a CWE with Diphenoxylate and collect the powder the remains in the filter. Another use would be taking the pills normally and keeping the dosage of atropine low, and combining it with codeine and they should potentiate each other.

I love lomotil. I get a prescription every 30 days for it, that I completely abuse. I used take twenty pills and then two hours later take another ten. It usually takes about 2 hours to kick in, and I get a very speedy, warm opiate feeling. And the best part is that it last forever- like 5 or six hours. I have never felt any of the ill effects from the atropine. And usually I'll still have a bowel movement the very next day, so bad side effects there, either. good stuff.

I have this readily. I do a reverse cd water extraction. Look up cwe and keep the white stuff in the
Filter put it in a Pyrex and wait till it dries. I chisel it out of the dish the pestle and mortar it into a powder. Then add it to a pill capsul. Please note that the liquid strained should be clear. This is the atropine. I throw it out. Also drink a lot of water. It will constipated and bloat you. I take 25 mg each hour up until 100 mg achieved over 4 hrs. Enjoy. This i use mainly for withdrawals. It has a great half life and keeps from the symptoms from effecting me. Said a one eyed snake
Someone took about 50 Lomotil. He felt good for a bit then ended up delusional and walking around for what may have been hours. The next day he didn't know what had been real, what hadn't, nor how/when he made it to bed undetected. It was scary not fun. He said he won't screw with Atropine again.
A friend of a friend's cousin wrote this, and I thought I'd post it in a couple of the Lomotil threads
I have been going through withdrawals for the last 8 days from Subutex... I've been having severe runs because of the w/d's and my dad gave me one of these pills. After finding out what they were, I took 32 of them, not because I am in pain, but because I haven't slept in two days because of the Restless Legs (My arms are actually worse than my legs).
When I stopped taking subutex, I was only taking 64th of an 8mg generic bupe per day. I can honestly say that after taking 80mg of Dihyphenoxylate I feel great. I looked up the equivalent in Oxycodone and Hydrocodone and the two websites I checked gave me an estimate of between 2.6mg and 7.9mg of oxycodone or hydrocodone. I have to say that from the way I feel it seems more like 20-25mg of either. Warm body buzz, definite opiate high. Like I say, the best way I can describe it is a very speedy version of two or three hydrocodone or oxycodone. Very talkative and not sleepy at all, even though I've only gotten 5 hours of sleep in the last two days because of the restless legs.
I ate them without doing a reverse CWE, and the atropine didn't cause any adverse effects. I have drank Hydromet syrup and the hematrope (sp?) gave me a lot of tachycardia and heart palpitations, but I got nothing from the Lomotil. It does take a long time for the onset, for me it took between two and two and a half hours to really feel it, but since the peak, it hasn't diminished at all... it even seems to be gradually increasing still. I know it's very long acting so I won't be feeling bad until the day after tomorrow. It's just nice to take a break from feeling so shitty... after this I won't be taking anything unless I really feel bad 10 days from today.
Anyway, I think you would have to take a whole hell of a lot if you have any sort of a tolerance, but as a few have said before me, it is excellent for treating w/d's. If I would have known it was as strong as it is, I would have only taken half this much.
I think it has great recreation potential, as I mentioned, the atropine didn't effect me at all, even taking 32 pills, and I know the symptoms from taking the Hydromet Cough Syrup. Not the best opioid, but definitely could be used for people in withdrawal or for people with very low tolerance. Could even be used to maintain if you can't find your opiate of choice for a few days. You probably won't feel super high, but you won't be super sick either.
Please keep in mind the delayed onset. If your dog or cat wants to try this, make sure they give the initial dose at least two hours before redosing. You could end up wasting meds, making yourself sick, or worse.
