i dont know if i would want to if it really is very bad for you. but i really enjoy snorting things, the more the better, i love the whole proces of making lines, snorting, the drip, its all good in my book.
I don't think snorting is any better than taking orally. If you try
this though, please be careful. If it is your first time, don't take
30-40 mg just because someone with a high tolerance says it's what you will
need. 10 mg will be plenty for your first experience.
Another possibility (if you can take the bitters) is dissolving under the tongue... keep the saliva in your mouth as long as possible. Faster than swallowing, slower than snorting. I tend to chew certain pills (i.e. legal scripts of mine like Klonopin) and hold them in my mouth a few because they kick in faster -- mucus membranes in the mouth absorb it, just like nasal membranes would if snorted. Then again, Klonopin tastes like sweet chalk & it's no problem.Edited by: Nicaine
No it doesnt help with anything except pain killing.
Not exactly true. There are some people such as myself that actually feel a high off of excedrine. If I did not take tylenol for say six months, then take three, I would feel a "high" from it. When you take the hydrocodone and the tylenol together, some people do get more "high" from it.
Swim has sniffed hydrocodone before, he thought it was stronger orally dispite the delayed onset. Im swims opinion eating them is the way to go. But if snorting is your thing then by all means get ta' crushin'
Personally I don't think paracetamol increases the high at all. Once you start pushing 3 grams a day of that crap it's kinda gross feeling to me anyway. After I had doc switch my script to 10/325 from 10/650 (hydrocodone/paracetamol), multiple pills feel better. I don't get as much of an upset stomach
Everyone is different of course. For OP 6 years later if you still haven't taken that 10mg yet I don't think sniffing hydrocodone has better bio availability as oral route. Converting to freebase and vaporizing sounds like an interesting though.
Pharmacokinetics of Hydrocodone indicate a bioavailability when taken orally of arond 80%, which would indicate that hydrocodone will work best when swallowed - many other opioids/opiates (if ot all?) are way more effcient when swallowed than when snorted.
Someone i know told me that its aspirin that makes the effects of any medications quicker due to the thinning of the blood that aspirin has, makes the medicines travel time to the brain alot faster once its absorbed into the bloodstream. As far as the increasing of the hydros from the apap...I believe that consensus here any amongst friends that pinky has spoken too, its Only use is to aid in pain relief! Hence why medicines like roxy has none...if it increased its effectiveness wouldnt they put it will all pain meds? Please, feel free to correct me if i am misinformed! ill pass it on to pinky at our next meeting
Supposedly the main reason is for added pain relief. Also it acts as a denaturant(sp*?). It was added to make hydrocodone less abusable. This really never stopped any dope sick person from doing more than recommended though. Usually they just ignore the advise on acetaminophen intake or do a cold water extraction.
Also the main ingrediant in "Roxycontin" is also available with acetaminophen as Percocet. It is also schedule 2 in the U.S.
So in a short it was added "for pain relief", but also to to try to make less abusable(LOL at that by the way
The thing that sucks if you get past the point of hydrocodone doing it for you, you are just one step closer to heroin. If you ever get to the point where it takes 50-100mg of hydrocodone, then it would be wiser to quit than take the "cheaper" route of heroin. While cheaper in the short run, cost much more in the long run.
Sorry to ramble on but I happen to be drunk for the first time in a while.
Not 'Roxycontin' (is there even such a thing?) but 'Roxicet' contains oxycodone & APAP. Roxycodone is usually just oxycodone.
Snorting Vicodin/Norco/Lortab is unhealthy & counter-productive. Unless maybe you did a Cold Water Extraction on them, then evaporated the water so that the residual powder is mostly pure hydrocodone. Sniffing pills containing aceteminophen (APAP/Tylenol/paracetamol) isn't productive - they are HUGE pills compared to the amount of opiate in them, the fillers & binders & APAP coat/clog your nasal mucous membranes, not allowing much of the opiate to be absorbed that way and most of the high is due to the powder hitting the back of your throat & going into your stomach (the "drip") anyway.
Since the high is coming from them dissolving/absorbing in your stomach, why go through this painful, roundabout way that could possibly cause damage to your nose, when you can just swallow them? If you want a faster 'hit', you could crush the pills & mix in a drink or parachute them, then your stomach doesn't have to go through the process of breaking the pill down before it starts absorbing it.
