    Well Today was quite a depressing situation for SWIM. SWIM thought he was going to pick up a good amount of Vicodin pills, but then things went down the drain.

    First off SWIM's friend got played by aquiring 7 Darvocets instead of 7 Vic 7.5s.

    Anyways beyond the bullshit, SWIM ended up eating 3 Darvocet 100/650s and can honestly say that he is surprised with the euphoria and opiate like feelings being experienced. I searched all over the forum and found that everyone said they were garbage. :confused:

    Confused but pleased. Has anyone else had a good experience with low doses of Darvocet?

    Re: Darvocet Experience

    SWIM used to resort to propoxyphene when nothing else was around... he found the 100mg pills to be ok, but the smaller dosage pills (can't remember if they were 65 or 50mg) were hard to get much euphoria from without exceeding the recommended limit of 4k mg of APAP. If SWIM was dopesick they were a last resort. SWIM imagines that darv would be quite recreational to the occasional opiate user, but "garbage" to the daily opiate user.

    Hmm... Interesting. SWIM is a daily opiate user. Well was up until he ran out of money for a few days. SWIM topped off this little Darvocet experience with 40mg OC. Feeling Great Now.

    Re: Darvocet Experience

    Davocet is pretty good in my friends books except they don't last whatsoever. Also that much apap is not too great, but swiy should be ok. The 65mg pills are hcl not naphsalate(sp) salt. They are equipotent pretty much. In swims experience though, 200mg of darvocet naph when I'm pretty naive is great. One of the metabolites has an local anasthesia quality to it I believe, and swim feels more numb all over than usual opiates so this might explain it. To him it feels more warm and cozy, but less euphoric than others. Swim is probably alone is this crowd, but he much prefers darvocet than vicodin also. Vicodin is very bottom of the line for opiates for him. Even tramadol beats it with it's other qualities.

    Re: Darvocet Experience

    Darvocets were the first painkillers swim ate to get high. He had to take four of the 100's to get anything, and usually took two more after that. He only did it a few times and decided they were trash and went back to robotrippin'

    The Darvocet(Propoxyphene) swim would always get had this pink coating on it.These were said to cause major stomach pain if too much was swallowed and indeed they did.From then on swim would remove the coating with a wet paper towel.

    Pretty much a useless substance to a hardcore opiate addict.If they were all that was around swim would take them but he didn't get that much from them.

    Re: Darvocet Experience

    SWIM remembers them being pink most of the time as well... Swim also remembers fearing that he'd poisoned himself with propoxyphene while attempting to attain some euphoria with them. It's been so long, but Swim remembers stomach pain and numbness in some part of the body... his mouth maybe?

    Re: Darvocet Experience

    Keep in mind there is a difference between Darvocet and Darvocet-Ns. I know the 100mg Propoxyphene - 650mg APAP pink pills are Darvocet-N, so they have Propoxyphene Napsylate as opposed to Propoxphene hydrochloride, which means that a 100mg pill is actually 65mg if you think of it in conventional terms (Propoxy hcl). Not accounting for the difference between the forms of propoxyphene may be part of the reason why some people get very little (they think they are taking a higher dose than they are), not to mention the conflicting dose levels I have seen listed in experience reports on the internet, though most of those don't account for opiate tolerance or lack thereof so I can't say for sure.

    Please be sure to list which drug you are specifically referring to in a post, propoxyphene napsylate or propoxyphene hydrochloride, as 300mg of Darvocet-N does not equal 300mg of regular Darvocet, and a person who fails to make the distinction when choosing a dose could make a dangerous mistake.


    Also, I think it may be possible to do a cold-water extraction to help get rid of that pesty APAP if you have propoxyphene hydrochloride, as it has greater water solubility, though I am not sure to what extent it is more soluble. This may be a potential experiment for someone who has time and drugs to kill...

    Re: Darvocet Experience

    Mary's little lamb took 200mg of Darvocet-N recently, which equates to 130mg of regular Darvocet.

    The lamb said onset was fairly fast, and that he didn't really notice any unpleasant effects. The Darvocet was actually fairly energizing, and the lamb was surprised to find he was very awake and energetic after onset of effects, as he had been a bit sleepy when he ingested the pills.

    There was very little in the way of euphoria, though the lamb did notice some decent analgesic effects. Overall the lamb felt like it was a similar experience to Tramadol, but less impressive on the whole, not to mention he had to ingest a gram of APAP to obtain such a state, which he would prefer not to.

    Given the amount of APAP it would be necessary for the lamb to ingest in order to go for a higher dose, I don't think he will experiment any further with this substance for recreational purposes unless he can find a way to get around taking excessive amounts of acetaminophen.

    Swim loves darvocet. Swim likes it much more than codiene and almost as much as hydrocodone. Swim pops 4 darvs and just zones out. Everything is so peaceful and intresting, swim likes to go up to the mountains with a few darvs and just sit and relax alone under a tree for hours and just think about things. And when swim closes his eyes he can see cool things almost like hes dreaming but still half awake.

    SWIM has open access to these and has almost no interest. Once in a rare while to compliment a nice hydrocodone buzz, but alone it takes FAR too many to feel anything- and that's with no tolerance. Just gets an awful stomach ache.

    However, SWIM had a friend who could take them from the same bottle and would be in a pure euphoria with no ill effects, with a high tolerance from other opiods. Go figure.
