has your friend ever snorted an extended release pill before? not one like the new OP oxycontins, but something like the old oc oxycontins or something similar? the reason injecting them is hard is because they gel up really bad, but that doesn't mean snorting
them will not work. to my knowledge those pills are not designed like the op oxycontins, so snorting them should be the same as snorting any other extended release pill. for example the old oc oxycontins everyone snorted all the time and it worked fine, but when shooting them they would gel up and it made them harder to work with. i would think it would be a mater if removing the coating, either by wetting it and rubbing it off, or by scraping it off, then crushing into powder and snorting. like you would with any other normal extended release tablet.
im not sure about the poster who said that morphine
has a lower bioavailability intranasal
than oral, doesn't seem like it makes much sense, usually snorting anything gives you a higher bio than oral. scientific sources also said oxycodone
/oxycontin had a lower bioavailability when snorted than swallowed, but around the drug
community this is pretty much considered either wrong or a lie to try and stop people from snorting pills. i can say ive taken oxy oral, nasal, and iv, and the strength from oral to nasal was not noticable, and iv is just a different high all around. all the people who snort oxycodone would swallow it if it had such a higher oral bioavailability. so perhaps snorting morphine may not have a lesser bio than oral, it may be a similar situation to the bioavailabilities of oxycodone which is pretty much considered that the scientists were wrong about the nasal bio. i really cant say, just something to consider. i have snorted morphine quite a bit, mostly when i was younger, and would get high from it. the last time i snorted it was about a year and a half ago, and i did get a buzz from it, though my tolerance was pretty high at the time so that could be why.
