    SWIM has run into a ton of butalbital but is wondering if its worth it for him to perform to CWE and try it.

    In SWIM's experience butalbital (via Fioricet) isn't anything special... and while SWIM is aware that this is a general BIG no-no, he combines it with clonazepam, which for him results in a magical combination.

    However SWIM highly discourages anyone from mixing barbiturates and benzodiazepines without having tried butalbital, or having a heavy tolerance for GABAergic agonists (like SWIM does).

    Try it by itself first, then if SWIY is certain he can handle more, add in a (very) low-dose benzo.... like 0.25-0.5mgs. alprazolam/clonazepam or 10mgs diazepam.
