found something on another forum about intravenous use of zolpidem
) and found that he was immediately fascinated by the idea. Due to the rules
here he can't post a link to the thread on the other forum. However, here's a small portion of several posts on the thread:
"Stilnox (Zolpidem) is seen on the black market. The nurse from RuptureS (an association) says that it is commonly abused, sometimes intravenously. When the user shoots it, the Zolpidem gives effects similar to Cocaine. When it is taken intravenously, the Zolpidem seems to give a rush like Coke when the user injects it. When they run out of Cocaine, the Cokeheads who inject many times a day inject Zolpidem instead... [...] etc..."
I Iv'ed zolpidem the other night, after reading about problems with the microcrystalline cellulose in the tablets. I'm kind of retarded, and decided to stop dopesickness in defiance to all logic. ALthough I triple cotton filtered, I still won't hold any knowledge as to the effetivness of cotton to filter microcrystalline cellulose
Yes, I know it's stupid, I won't reccomend it for that reason.
However, The rush was impressive at 10mgs. I would compare to 10 mg's of midazolam, with, as jason reported, diminshed hypnotic affect. Duration seemed equal to oral ingestion, with the bypass of having to have an empty stomach for bioavailability to be high.
Overall it felt almost exactly like iv'ed midazolam, with less memory loss, although my experience with such has been limited to a few dormicum 15's.
SWIM thought this topic interesting and worthy of discussion, particularly given the fact that Zolpidem is *very short acting* and nearly all psychoactive
drugs in that category have abuse potential.
Note that IV'ing pills is very dangerous
unless one knows a certain
technique to remove all pill binders, fillers, etc. and end up with only the pure drug
remaining. Unless you have the proper lab gear and know how, don't do it. Don't even think about doing it.
That said -- if anyone's tried it, please pipe up with (A) how you isolated the zolpidem from Ambien tablets, and (B) what you found in terms of effects.
