    Has anyone have any experience with levomethamphetamine (or levmetafetamine they called it to reduce amphetamine related social stigma).

    Vicks vapour inhaler: Ingredients - 50mg levomethamphetamine.

    SWIM was concidering breaking it open and consuming the cotton.

    Despite the rumors that this will get one high, that is not quite the case. Levomethamphetamine is only very mildly centrally active unlike Dextroamphetamine and the d-isomer of Methamphetamine. One would only notice extremely mild effects similar to Ephedrine or Pseudoephedrine if any at all. Also may I note that the cotton is soaked in Menthol (which can leave a very unpleasant taste for hours) and Camphor (which can be toxic and even potentially fatal in high doses).

    However, Benzedrex inhalers contain an active ingredient called Propylhexedrine which does act as a fairly strong stimulant comparable to Dextroamphetamine.

    Quick searches for "Benzedrex" and/or "Propyhexedrine" on this forum should turn up many results filled with useful information on the substance.

    The extraction seems quite nice, and SWIM will try anything once. Can the acetone be replaced with isopropyl alcohol? Will SWIM still end up with the levomethamphetamine product?

    yes the end product will stay the same,and i believe iso can be used in place of acetone but i would use 99% or the closest you can get the excess water can be removed by adding epsome salts and shaking for a whiole before use.

    Would espom salt + isopropanol (91%) be adequate for dehydrated alcohol?

    I cant say for sure because my monkey has only dried ISO once with epsom salts,but it worked for monkey ~no water left after evaporation, just add enough epsom so theres a nice layer on the bottom,dont worry you cant add too much AFAIK. after this shake it for a few minuttes let it sit for another few then dump it threew a coffee filter,posibly 2-3 coffeee filters if ittl work with your brand together. ffor further purity. Lab grade filter paper works soooo much better but most people dont have that sitting around the kitchen!

    ^IPA will evaporate completely if it is 90% or 100%, AFAIK, the solvent carries the water away. But if salts turned to jelly then they adsorbed water.

    SWIM's dog is having trouble with acid/base extractions... He always seems to fuck it up somehow.

    He has tried with both Vicks and Benzedrex. He dissolves the cottons in the IPA, then extracts the base with naphtha, then tries to salt out the l-meth or propylhexedrine with HCl, and gets no precipitate. He has tried adding hydrochloric acid, then tried another extraction with HCl gas.

    Does anyone have any pointers?

    He also had a failed acid/base extraction using Pseudoephedrine Hcl pills he planned to use for a meth cook. He washed the pills 3 times with mineral turps, then 3 times with acetone, then 3 times with naphtha, then dissolved the mass in distilled water and followed by basing and pulling out with non-polar and salting out, and ended up with an oily mess...

    SWIM got zero effects from Vicks inhalers in terms of euphoria. Really not recreational in any way.

    Try benzedrex, SWIV is a former crystal meth smoker and benzedrex gets swim nearly as high as meth, its the closest thing to meth in SWIM opinion, it even beats adderal.
