    snorting vicodin?

    Good idea or bad idea?


    Are the effects at all different or better than taking it orally?

    OK idea. You will feel the effects a little sooner than if taking orally, and maybe a bit stronger. The effects may not last as long, but should be similar in nature to taking the drug orally. However, generally you would have to snort down large amounts of the drug, and that isn't always easy if you have not done it before.

    One time i snorted 3 fat lines of vik. And ive seen a few of my friends snort one small line of vik one time and get a high. Anyways, this was my first time doing it. And after i snorted the 3 lines, i didn't feel anything at all. And this was a 500mg pill.


    Then i had a chance to get a cheap vik pill about a month later after that. I took the chance and decided to try and take it orally and see if that would do anything. By the way, this was a generic vik. And i took it, didn't feel a thing.


    And another thing...i heard that some people dont get a "high" off vik, and some do. So is this true? if so, i must be one that doesn't get a high.

    I think that's very true, blah102


    There's no question that different drugs affect people in different ways.


    Great example: pot makes me feel HORRIBLE. Tried ita number of times, and everytime I felt sick, it was totally unpleasant. (I have yet to meet someone else who doesn't like pot, though).


    I know a lot of people whosay vicodin doesn't do a thing for them, or said that itmade them nauseous. So it could be it just doesn't work well for you.


    But as for me, it makes me feel fiiiiine. <img border="0" src= "smileys/smiley1.gif">


    Thanks for the replies, y'all. I'm off to try a l'il snort right now.

    Ouch! Verdict: I would NOT recommend snorting vic. Ouch. Ouch. ouch. My nose is burning and my head kinda hurts. I crushed one 500mg pill, which ended up being ALOT to get up the nose.


    As for the effects, nothing intense. Felt kinda funny for a minute or two, but not in a good way. Yuck.


    If anyone reads this who is thinking about trying it, don't. It's waste of a perfectly good pill. Dang. Now my nose is all runny.

    Thats just plain sick. Just take it, you will feel alot better not having to snort down a mound of sick tasting material. The drip would probably be nasty and it would cause nose bleeds since I'm sure it would be hard to grind up completely.

    the best way to get high of vike is to crush it up and just swallow the powder. this is the same as snorting it because most medicines are time released and by crushing it up you get the full high all at once although the high is shorter.

    Mostpills are NOT time release. Oxycontin is an exception.

    The method of ingestion is what's written on the pill bottle.That is the best way to go. I find they do not affect me too much unless I drink with them and take 4 or 5.

    would you snort 5 pills of acetominophin? (generic asperin)? that's what you're doing when you snort a vicodin. 500 mg of acetominophin and only 5mg of hydrocodone. stick to norco's if you must do vicodins.

    Ive seen kids at partys crush up vicoden and pass around a straw. Sure it looks like a lot of powder and theres about ten lines but guesss what its only one pill and there is no way 1 pill between 4 people is going to do anything. These fools dont know their snorting aspirin.

    i know its bad to snort pills, because they have the acetaminophen in them.


    SWIM has snorted a lot regardless, and is wondering if that could cause damage to lungs?


    Also how bad is it for your nose to snort pills with 600Mg of acetaminophen in them (3 or 4 pills at a time)?


    SWIM also has smoked pills, and i knowthat’s notgood for your lungs, but how much damage do you think could of been done only smoke maybe 1 or 2 pills in SWIM's life

    This has been discussed quite extensively on this forum. Most people agree that snorting pills causes some form of damage to the nasal membranes, and the nose in general. Snorting vicoden is one of the worst, because there is such a small amount of hydrocodone and such a large amount of acetaminophen.

    Snorting really has no advantage over taking the vicoden when you think about it. You might get a quick onset, but the effects don't last as long. To get a decent buzz, you would probably have to snort more than one, and that is a huge amount of anything to snort. Save yourself the nose bleeds and the pain...Just pop them and relax. There are better, more appropriate things to snort.

    thanks for the reply


    im not saying SWIM wants/is going to snort/smoke, SWIM has already snorted/smoked them, and wants to know if there could be any lung or nose damageEdited by: Red_Baran

    Couldn't you just do a simple cold water extraction on the pills, evaporate
    the water, and snort the resulting, fairly pure hydrocodone?

    You ought to be fine if SWIM has only done this once or twice. Your body is pretty resilient.
