    SWIM's been seein' fioricet around the house, most of the time they're all scraped up and whatnot.. SWIM's dad being the only other drug user in the house, SWIM knows it's his shit and I didn't think you could snort these things, or if could even be effective.

    Your thoughts, please.

    It is part barbiturate(50mg) but is mosly paracetamol(325mg) so pacman wouldn't recommend taking large doses. It also has caffeine(40mg) in it.

    Here is a list of side effects

    Side effects

    Side effects for any drug are difficult to predict, but commonly reported side effects for Fioricet include:

    * Dizziness
    * Drowsiness
    * Intoxicated feeling
    * Light-headedness
    * Nausea
    * Vomiting
    * Sedation
    * Addiction
    * Shortness of breath
    * Abdominal pain

    SWIM knew all of this already.. I guess SWIM's question was more directed towards the 'can you snort it' part.

    u wouldnt want to snort it because its not pure & has fillers, caffeine, and tylenol..SWIM would imagine it wouldnt be a pleasant sensation either.

    Fiorcets are not that great anyways, the amount of butalbital versus the other ingredients makes it hard to get high on enjoyably and safely.

    SWIM would say if SWIY has no alcohol, benzo, barbiturate tolerance (since theyre alll cross tolerant) to just pop 2 or 3 and get a feel for the high which is subtle and like alcohol in some respects.

    Well everything is possible to snort BUT those would NOT go up SWIY's nose very easily, probly will burn like hell. Also those are huge pills huh? Thats like snorting a vic.

    Depending on the dosage SWIY should just pop 2, wait 30min and if SWIY wants the feeling to be stronger than pop another 1 or 2. If SWIY has no tolorance SWIM recomends not to exceed 4, more could be fatal. Barbs are kinda oldschool, and unlike benzos (there is something in one's brain in the benzo receptor that makes it ALOT harder to overdose SWIM is pretty sure) overdising on barbs is something SWIY has to be ALOT more careful with, thats why barbs arent seen NEARLY as much as benzos now a days.

    If SWIY wants he could even write an experience report and post it on the forum, would be fun to see how it works out for him.

    Good luck.

    SWIM is prescribed a from of Fioricet that contains 30mg of codeine phosphate per tablet and comes in the form of a separable capsule that contains all the goodies already in a fine powder. So SWIM couldn't resist giving it a shot.

    The burn is no worse than would be the case with any medicine with acetaminophen in it. It's basically a mildly unpleasant burn that subsides within 15 seconds. That being said the taste of the drip is AWFUL. Like chewing up a tylenol 3 and letting it run down your throat. Although the high is more intense and has definitely saved SWIM a great deal of his supply in the long run.

    So honestly you really just have to judge for yourself. The first time SWIM did it he almost threw up for about half an hour. But after a few times he began to adjust to the taste and now as long as SWIM keeps a drink handy it really doesn't bother him.

    Lastly I know it's been said a million times before but it can't be stressed enough, abusing any medication containing acetometaphin is just asking for trouble. SWIM's personel recommendation would be to 1. do a cold water extraction, 2. Keep a pottent drink near by I.E. Orange juice, lemonade, cranberry juice 3. and try it for yourself. To some it might be worth it, others not so much.

    But the fact is it does kick in faster and stronger and I believe it is really the better route. Although your nasal passages may ultimately disagree. ;D

    I recently got ahold of Zebutal 50-325-40 MG and seen on the label it was for pain, so I opened the capsule and took it all to the dome. Big big mistake!!! It burnt my sinus so bad for a good 20 minutes. My suggestion to SWIM is do NOT snort!!! These are terrible pain killers because initially the pain is relieved with no high I might add, but once the caffeine wears off you tend to crash real hard. Bad bad stuff.

    DeekenFrost added 0 Minutes and 54 Seconds later...
