    Number one, this post doesn't state what RoA (route of administration) is planned, so it's impossible to state how much is needed to OD.

    #2, if we don't know the animal-in-question's previous tolerance or potential cross-tolerance, we can't know how much it would need to "get high".

    #3, even if #2 were known, we wouldn't give out a specific "good dose to get high on", because what if we're wrong & it dies?

    #4 (and most importantly), you can't get high on lidocaine. Oh, but you can certainly overdose & kill yourself with it by stopping the heart (I believe via a systemic numbing effect).

    All the best,

    Canmedaa assumes its a vial. 2% lido/xylocaine etc is what us for local anesthesia and nerve blockades, often found in suture kits.

    We also use Lidocaine IV to treat cardiac PVC's and ventricular tachycardia. However, if that vial is as small as Canmedaa thinks it is, and at that dilution....probably just enough in there to induce a cardiac event, an arrythmia to be precise. And there is nothing fun or euphoric when that happens.

    Don't use it. It wont do anything for you. Except maybe land you ass on a table in an ER trauma bay taking 200kJ shocks to the chest. There is no recreational use for that drug. It might be best to turn it in to a local pharmacy for proper disposal.

    Take Care,
