    This seems like a really crazy idea so I'll ask for opinions first. After the intiguing stuff about the intra nasal delivery of loperamide. I had the idea of using a nasal spray bottle to help since he hated snorting it the first time. Since the loperamide is not very soluble in water but extremely soluble in alcohol he was wondering if he put a bit of vodka in with the water and sprayed it would it destroy anything?
