    Why would one want to do this? It will not get one high like oxycodone.

    Just from what smim has read about it, it doesnt sound like a good idea at all. Sounds like the only injection that this substance is even fathomable with is an epidural.

    yea swim thinks that has bad news written all over it. shooting up oxycodone it hard on the veins, let alone some weird ass blood pressure medicine which some how helps withdrawals from opiates. just because somethings work to shoot up doesn't mean everything is.

    AW: can you inject clonodine?

    Hmmm, if swinyis doing it please reduce the dosage,
    the Pills are designed for the oral use,
    if swiny doing now IV. a much smaller dosage is needed!

    Please use the Search Engine for a look of how much Clonidin is advised for a IV-Administration!

    AW: Re: can you inject clonodine?

    A Needle fixation, very common in IV.-Abuser.
    The People will be surprised when they know what kind of stuff the addicted People do :s

    Injecting Pills is always dangerous but a few points make it a little bit safer:

    1. the Dosage change, People can do 2 nanogram a Kg. without Problems
    in a oral application but IV. it will be different
    2. proper Filtering
    3. Time to see if something change (viscosity, blurring, etc.)
    4. again Filtering
    5. right Technique

    Stay safe and don't do it. :cool:

    Oh Red Rock knows all about needle fixation. He used to shoot up plain old water though in attempts to fix that, not shoot up clonidine. This would be the much safer option.

    Re: can you inject clonodine?

    ^ OP is probably hoping for some effect while IVing something. Water may satisfy the needle fixation, but not the effect one wants. Swim knows all about it as well. Stupidly shot up all sorts of things that are ill advised.

    Clonodine fits in the ill advised list, pretty high on top.

    Re: can you inject clonodine?

    yea swim thinks any opiate/IV user can relate to the needle fixation issue. swim thinks water should suffice, but read somewhere that too much water in the bloodstream is not good for people, thats why the hospitals use saline (swim believes if hes mistaken please correct!) to rehydrate people intravenously.

    but just because the needle fixation can be a hard thing to overcome doesn't mean people should go on shooting up any old thing they can get their hands on. that could lead to some serious side effects, and or, possible bodily harm.

    Re: can you inject clonodine?

    Swim would advise against injection
    Apart from being a drug that was design to reduce blood pressure, and has no recreational value whatsoever .

    The tablets that swim has, are 150 micrograms, and they are the size of paracetamol which leaves swim to believe that the tablet contains a lot of binders – deeming the tablet as dangerous to inject

    SWIM believes Clonidine helps opioids intrathecally, that is all. Be safe. Be smart, please.

    Ive actually done it before and yes it does make you sleepy, i used to shoot methadone and clonidine together, not saying its 1000000% safe but it can be done.

    acetnt added 3 Minutes and 18 Seconds later...


    Yes too much water will give you a bad head ache its not good. I prefer using filter water too because regular water has a lot of metals and bacteria.

    You CAN and SWIM found it not only "no big deal", but it kind of potentiated the opiate..
    NOT in a usual way.. It definitely felt like I had an increased level of excitement.. reminiscent of an upper.
    To the point where SWIM would start shooting BOTH hydromorphone AND the clonidine at one time..Albeit with 2 different syringes. when the clonidine was prescribed to alleviate cravings and help SWIM abstain from doing more meds than required.
    SWIM I.M.'d the clonidine after dissolving and filtering.. it becomes a cloudy liquid.
    ALSO a reason for injecting it..(not only because of needle fixation) is the fact that it just acts much much faster than the oral route of administration.
    Care must be taken not to take too much... 2-3 x0.1mg at the most if not accustomed to it...after a slightly elevated dose... SWIM was laying on the couch watching a movie and got up to answer the door..
    After no more than 7-8 steps SWIM lost motor control and collapsed to the floor as if they had taken a too big toke... DEFINITELY because the low blood pressure in combination with getting up quickly most likely left SWIM brain with too little O2... Recovery was within seconds and SWIM got up and was thereafter "normal"

    ^Please don't use SWIM, you can speak freely about drug use.

    What is the point of shooting clonodine with opiates? Because it makes you kinda tired? It would be safer to shoot some Benadryl with your opiater than clonodine. Antihistamines make you more sedated and don't lower your blood pressure like clonodine does. Mixing it with opiates seems exceedingly dangerous to me because you're combining two drugs that both seriously lower you BP. Seems like in an overdose situation, like if you shot too much opiates, you'd really increase your chances of dying.

    This just has bad idea written all over it. Get some diphenhydramine or promethazine, not blood pressure pills.
