    Friend of SWIM's has some dilaudid 4's. He's thinking of IM or
    IV. Friend says to shoot the whole 4, but SWIM only took 1/2 an 8
    when he ate them (twice in the past.) So, thoughts on how much
    I should start out w/ IM and/or IV appreciated.



    Also, why is it OK to IM dilaudid when I hear that many other things it's only OK to IV?



    Thanks-

    Need clarification. First, SWIM's oral dose was 1/2 of a dilaudid
    8. The same guy, a knowledgeable and close friend, told SWIM to
    IV the whole 4. Tho he started SWIM IV on 1/4 gm of good coke, so
    maybe I will start w/ 1/2 a 4.



    BUT, I have been told from very, very reliable sources that dilaudid
    is one of the few things one CAN IM and not get an abscess. SWIM
    trusts that info, tho wonders why that is and would be doing it IV
    anyway.



    Also, I didn't like oral dilaudid that much, seemed pretty out of it
    like sleepy. Almost like he slept through the good part.
    Maybe took too much? IV is probably much different. He'll
    probably start w/ 1/2 a 4.



    Thanks-

    If you IV 1/2 a four you'll still get a rush, and it should be reasonably safe. You can always bump again if your not at your desired high, but you can't take back what you've already put in . So go with half first .
