    Hello,
    Swim was wondering about injecting the get inside the packet. Swim's been a junkie for 25+ years but have never done this. Does anybody know anything about it and how to do it? Any advise would be appreciated..

    I would have to advise completely against it. I know someone who has died from attempting this and they were an opiate addict for many years. It is not safe at all, that is why the patches are made. The patches release the right amount that is needed. Injecting the concentrated substance inside the patches is a very bad idea.

    a friend & swim spk about this topic earlier today as he came by 2 x 2mg patches. He says there were 3 or so sesshions derived from it and on his first try almost dies.

    Luckily the swimmer he was with brought him back just as his face turned grey and he was going under. The conclusion here is to just not do it , he says.

    This is from an Olympic swimmer that has much tolerance - experience with these waters.

    Oxyman11:11 added 0 Minutes and 57 Seconds later...

    Correction; 2 x 25mg

    Like SWIgodztear, SWIM also advises against doing what SWIcreature described above.

    Fentanyl is a very potent synthetic opioid analgesic. Its potency is approximately 100 times that of morphine's, meaning 100 mcg (MICROgrams) of fentanyl is (approximately) equal in analgesic value to 10 mg of morphine. With a substance this potent, experimental use by an inexperienced and unknowledgeable recreational user is dangerous, and said user attempting to INJECT such a substance is EXTREMELY dangerous (SWIM cannot stress this enough).

    It should be noted that the patch SWIcreature has is not a 50 mg patch and does not contain 50 mg of fentanyl. SWIM is almost positive that the patch in question is actually a 50 mcg/hour patch, and thus contains a total of 5 mg of fentanyl. However, the 5 mg is intended to be distributed at a rate of 50 micrograms per hour for ~72 hours.

    The solution/gel contained within the patch (either in a reservoir or 'matrix' system) consists of fentanyl citrate and alcohol. The gel is not meant to be injected. There are other ways of using the fentanyl contained within the patch. To learn more about using the patch, SWIM suggests UTFSE. Please do not attempt injecting any part of any fentanyl patch.

    Be safe.

    50 mcg/h contains 8.4 mg fentanyl, swim saw that 5mg was posted so checked one of his and above is from package.

    Yeah please do not shoot this, people. There are members on this forum who have had friends die from taking Fentanyl(not even from injecting), and these folks were experienced opiate addicts. If the dosage is in the microgram range, and SWIY has one patch of 5mg(?), please don't fuck with it. Especially if one doesn't even know how much they have(50 mg?! come on...)

    Agree - SWIM here takes all his normal scripts which is 1500mg Hydrocodone 84mg of Fentanyl a month - give or take 80mg Kadian(morphine) throughout the month with 20mg Oxcycodone which is not daily but indulge and my normal scripts are taken correctly meaning SWIM uses them correctly to maintain 1 month and says this to give you a idea of what swims tolerance is, not crazy high but just trying to help with my past and current experiences.

    When SWIM removes the old Fentanyl patch after 3 days, SWIM will be high all day with a strong high witch includes itching, extreme pin pupils and the rush feeling which never happens with the other pills that were included. SWIM can't even begin to speculate, assume what would happen if swim were to chew on a new not used patch. Just chew it, never thought it would work and tried all kinds of methods in the past and never had much luck. Just a cut a small piece and start chewing and within 20 minutes, you are going to be so high, don't even mess around with injecting, just start out small, will come on quickly and you can always do more if needed, better that then doing all and can't go back.

    A friend of mine personally died from this (but he was revived) in my presence a month or two ago. It isn't heroin. I don't suggest it. He was very experienced with injecting and using Opiates.

    What about using a 50 mg fentanyl patch on the skin while I'm on Subutex. I'm down to 1 mg. subutex daily?

    SWIM has had fentanyl injected into him in the hospital for various procedures. In SWIM's opinion it really doesn't have as much recreational value as other opioids. It does have the sedating effects but there is little to no euphoria and SWIM was injected with 500mcg(he has a pretty high tolerance) and this was with 10mg of midazalom. There's just no way to measure out the dosage accurately enough for these things to be injected safely. If SWIY really wants the take them in a way other than wearing them then just cut them up into whatever dose SWIY desires and suck on them.
