    Allright I have a few questions. Why the hell does Vicks call it levmetamfetamine instead of l-methamphetamine? Can they actually change a name of a chemical on their drug facts list and do you guys think they did this so most people wouldn't think it was methamphetamine? And how did the DEA let them get away with making this I mean I know the l isomer is weaker but I thought that isomers of controlled substances were illegal too *confused*

    Hey I'm bumping this topic up because I want to know how they can get away with selling L-methamphetamine as levmetamfetamine

    Nothing weird about it. Just as Freak says, the d stands for dextro and the l for levo. Just the same as dextro-amphetamine also being named as dexamphetamine or dexedrine.

    Yeah but why do they call it metamfetamine instead of methamphetamine? And still I thought the isomers were illegal.

    they used to call it l-desoxyephedrine, IIRC. but now "ephedrine" is a word of danger, a killer chemical unscrupulously pushed on the public by evil pharma companies, until the Truth was exposed by the media. i would guess that they want to do as much as they can to prevent another hysterical news feature such as "10 year olds buying meth at Walgreens".

    i heard people break apart the inhalers and get the cotton thing inside to extract the l-meth to inject, and people claim to get a good speed, but it wont do anything unless you inject it, so i hear, anyone have any ideas or info on this

    I have had a great time with these. Swim just pops the bottoms out, cuts the cotton into swallowable pieces, and eats them. It gives him a great body buzz, much like oral ingestion of street methamphetamine.

    Does You eat all the cotton pieces at once, or just one piece per dose?

    Benzedrex = propylhexedrine
    Vicks = l-methamphetamine

    From everything i've heard l-meth is almost completely inactive in the CNS, but i've never eaten a vicks inhaler so I don't know for sure.

    They do have different chemicals. Benzedrex is propylhexedrine and Vicks is levmetamfetamine. They're both stimulants, so I gotta believe both can be abused.

    Hey, I purchased some generic walgreens "vapor inhaler" about an hour ago.

    I came home, took like twenty sniffs in each nostril. It contains "levmetamfetamine 50mg" per inhaler.

    It wasnt working. I busted the plastic with a hemmer. It was a little tube like thing you find in some markers or highlighters. I sniffed on it. Then I ripped it in half. I tried smoking one half, and I chewed on the other half than swallowed it.

    I feel a little intoxicated, plus it tasted like shit. But no rush or anything.

    I have a home blood pressure kit thing. I just took my blood pressure. It is 117/71 and the pulse is 100! wthat is pretty high pulse considering itm typing on the computer. Usually pulse is like 65.

    In any way, DONT SPREAD THE WORD. It will go from OTC at walgreens to something like prescription.

    I think I am euphoric right now, but not stimulated. Just like euphoric.

    Go and try it, but don't tell your friends. Enjoy it while you can.

    Thanks,
    Max

    The thing is you cant take sniffs, you got to get it to your system.

    Once again, please dont spread the word.

    Thanks, Max

    Ok, so hear I am. It is about 30 minutes since I ingested the little tube you find inside. I am not sure about the vicks, I thing it has some deiiferent mschanism. Well, perhg maps you have read my last two replies.

    I am very confused. I am still very euphoric. I was just riding my bike. Now I am like falling asleep. My blood pressure is 121/77, pulse is 85 (pulse about 20 more than usual.)

    But I am like falling asleep. It would be very pleasant for me to take a nap right now, although I am trying not to. Its like morphine or something.

    Now upon reading the box I see it says "in case of overdose or ingestion of contents, get medical help or contact poison control center.

    Anyways, I just wanted to share with you a detailed account of what happehns. I just joined this forum not because I take lots of drugs or do research, but because it was like the 5th Google result for levmetamfetamine.

    So I guess there is no point in this. Considering I dont have ADHD, I dont think that the drug provides much stimulatry effects to anyone at all. After taking it, then I felt kind of euphoric and numbness, then now I feel like sedated and somewhat euphoric. My pulse is very fast, but it doesn't make what I do any faster. I tried riding my bike and running and doing pullups, but no better than usual. Sure i felt effects, but It wasnt stimulatry.

    I do have to say I am very dissapointed. Except for the fact that this generic Walgreens inhaler only cost me 3.80

    I have abused Vicks inhalers containing levmetamfetamine on several occasions, by either removing the filter inside, cutting it into pieces, and swallowing it, or by simply swallowing the fliter whole - and I usually eat 2-3 filters at a time. It does produce a short-lived euphoric speed-like high, but I've found that the side effects are too nasty. I tend to sweat this greasy, Vicks-ish sweat and my whole head and taste buds are saturated in the taste. It's also given me terrible heart palpitations and an irregular beat. Also, on several occasions, I've mixed the inhalers with Robitussin cough gels (for the dextromethorphan) for a combined amphetamine/dissasociative high. This, too, is fun but short-lived and revs up my heart to a dangerous place. A UA I recently dropped after using Vicks inhalers showed positive for meth at a level upwards of 35,000ng/ml, which is ridiculously high! Use caution!

    Why do you all assume levmetamfetamine is even related to methamphetamine, other than a similar spelling? Chemist will inform you the two do not even share a similar, let alone the same molecular structure. The differences between the two is about the same as Phenylephrine as it could relate to Pseudoephedrine, of which neither have the same molecuar structure either. Both are totallly different drugs as Levemetamfetamine is to methamphetamine, so is Phenlyephrine is to pseudoephedrine. Perhaps for a lack of a better name during the patent of Levitmef, a poor choice os a name was given to the product or chemical substance, which shares NO molecular similarity at all, not even close enough to even say they are related. Yet persons will think what they will without any research or going to a source of information to find out the truths about such OTC drugs vs. illegal drugs. Altho' pseudoephedrine is legal, but only in a controlled environment.
    As for the comments on getting a buzz or high like speed, from eating the cotton or smoking it, all I can say is geezus, would you same persons digest anything lethal, that is not for smoking or ingesting? This whole subject & having to inform certain persons reminds me to much of having to inform kids why they cannot buy plastic model glue. Even tho' a non-lethal version is made for kids, & adults can still buy the old origiinal glue. But what dummy in their own right mind is going to sniff glue, will also be the same person to use a Vicks Inhaler to try to get a buzz or high. This is as ludicrous as just opening a gas tank & whiffing its fumes, until your disorineted.
    Again there are no chemical attributes of the two, to consider them even in the same family. Yet true Vicks should of came up with a totaly different name for Levmetafine. So quit abusing simple OTC meds. Or this too will no longer be over the counter, not because it has meth in it. As if the authorities or FDA new persons were overdosing on consumption of nail polish, by sniffing it, they would have to sell that over Pharmacists counter, not on the shelves.

    I'm not sure what happened to the rep/comment about the post above mine, I was having connection issues and it doesn't seem like it went through.


    Anyway DogenGenjo please do not make a post until you're sure what you are talking about.
    Levmetafetamine is Levo-methamphetamine.
    Both names refer to the same levorotary isomer of methamphetamine.
    L-meth does not cause any psychological effects, as such it is not addictive the way the dextrorotatory isomer or the racemic substance is.



    The exact opposite is true, the name was chosen as it IS L-meth, the modified spelling was simply a way to list the chemical while simultaneously trying to somewhat conceal that fact.


    You have obviously never heard of Benzedrine inhalers, the original decongestant inhaler that contained racemic amphetamine while that was still legal or the currently available Benzedrex inhalers which contain propylhexedrine (hexahydromethamphetamine).


    As I already said, that is what they did.


    Methamphetamine is actually two stereo-isomers, Dextro and Levo. D-meth is what readily crosses the BBB (Blood Brain Barrier) into the CNS (Central Nervous System) where is acts as a dopamine and serotonin reuptake inhibiting/releasing agent. L-meth on the other hand does not cross the BBB in any significant way, instead it remains in the SNS (Sympathic Nervous System) causing effects such as, vasoconstriction, heightened blood pressure and heart, rate just to name a few.


    Not sure where this statement came from?


    TL;DR: Levmetamfetamine IS simply another name for the levorotary isomer of methamphetamine, nothing else.

    Swim kind of likes the chemical. It's better, at least for him, than OTC pseudoephedrine. I wonder what the differences are? Much less of a body-high, and more clear-headedness. Typing is extremely fluent.

    okay.. You should never eat baby carrots on amphs... i'm just about puking carrot scuz.
