    This is only stuff my pet has and he doesn't get anything from snorting or oral use, he just wants IV. So please someone help him to get this stuff soluble and somehow inside a syringe, he told that he has sterifilts but when he adds saline solution and cooks it will produce really gooey and thick bubbles and when it all settles down, none of it will go thru the sterifilt.

    you can't inject clonazepam pills. They don't disolve in water. You can only injection clonazepam solution. The pills just cannot be shot because clonazepam won't disolve in water/saline.

    Try rectal administration, that's the only other option you have.

    MP is correct.

    Clonazepam is NOT water-soluble. Therefore, it will not dissolve into the water & thus clonazepam tablets are not injectable. One shouldn't be injecting tablets anyway, but benzodiazepine tablets are particularly non-injectable & frighteningly unsafe.

    Clonazepam (as with most benzos) has a very high oral bioavailability; they should be taken orally, or one could let them dissolve under the tongue (sublingual). Clonzazepam is a longer-acting benzo, meaning it has a slower come-up (and a corresponding slower comedown/crash) than something like, say, oxycodone (an opioid). They are also very sneaky little substances, leading the people who are taking them to think they "aren't working", while if they could look outside themselves somehow, they'd see that they are in fact engaging in risky behaviour, possibly even slurring their words & driving like a fuckwit. ;)

    The only benzo I know of that has a tendency to "hit" you (like, so you notice the change of conciousness) is Xanax (alprazolam), the others are just too subtle, and to be honest, even injecting them wouldn't really change that.

    There is one benzo that is slightly water-soluble, and that is midazolam (Versed, iirc), but that doesn't mean it's "injectable".

    You can sometimes come across diazepam (Valium) or midazolam (Versed) ampules, which are specially formulated specifically for injection purposes; these are the ONLY benzos that should EVER be injected, and I don't care WHAT you think your tolerance is, if one were to do so, they need to make sure to have a trusted friend with them, and give their car keys (and maybe their money & cell phone) to said friend to hold on to as well.

    k-e said it all - when i read the topic title i literally got chills rolling down my spine. Benzos are only injected in controlled environments (as in hospitals for example) and only by professionals and under strict supervision for obvious safety reasons. Using these injectable ampoules suggested above alone at home is one of the most dangerous things one can do, as IV valium for example, is a true knock behind the head and virtually disables the patient (which is the most common goal in the use of IV Valium anyway...)

    No surprise either that snorting doesn't work - as it's been said above bioavailability of clonazepam is highest when ingested.

    If clonazepam has no effect when ingested (and i imagine that the doses used by the op are already very high), one should refrain from using it (as tolearnce is likely to be already too high) and search for an alternative if there is indeed a therapeutic need for it. If there is no therapeutic need for it, one should leave it altogether knowing that oral administration is the only really effective way and that anything else done to enhance the effects is sheer nonsense.

    seriously, for the love all good and relaxing things that let us get by.... let these benzos dissolve under your tongue.

    >>> lay down in a dark , semi lit quiet place, comfy temps, music optional. slow.... no jungle techno or hard RAP (DMX) and chill for 20minutes.....

    IV with these non soluble things is a no no, swim knows a fellow who made this almost fatally error when the process went sour.

    Safety. first, trust an ass that made the mistakes.

    This has been covered many times before. Please search the Benzodiazepine forum, using the prefix "Injecting"
