    I found some benzocaine lozenges in his cupboard, but he is not sure if these are the benzos that he has heard about. Can someone clue him in if he will get a buzz from these things?

    I am very sorry for not putting this in the benzo subforum, if a mod could move it for him it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hahaha !

    Benzocaine is a local anesthetic for toothaches.
    Benzodiazapines are the ones I think you are mistaking it for.

    What you've got isn't really good for anything but relieving a sore throat, or maybe anaesthatizing your fish if you need to perform any minor surgical procedures on them. It wont get you high. Sorry.

    Plain old carbonated water works well as a fish anesthetic too !

    boy, that'd be nice if it was a benzo. I would be eatting those throat drops all the live long day!
    They are pretty good for soar throats, though.

    You should be able to buy benzocaine in the UK. It is in most over the counter tooth ache medications.

    Just because something ends in -caine, doesn't mean it'll get you high.. benzocaine is the stuff that you can buy in pharmacies to numb childrens gums after their baby teeth fall out. Back when I was stupid I filled an albuterol inhaler with benzocaine and had a seizure.

    But, yes, it's legal to buy online in the UK.
