    So I have snorted a lot thing like coke, Ritalin, adderall, Gabapentin, even benadryl(I know it was stupid, etc.
    But tonight insteading of eating it I snorted mg of Prozac.
    It was about a hour or 2 ago. I can't remember cause I'm a little drunk but all I know
    Is my throat still hurts when I swallow and my nose it sooooo stopped up.
    Whyyyy and how do I fix this?

    You snorted an antidepressant that is meant to be swallowed. The powder probably inflamed all the membranes if your nose, try and wash your nose out with some warm water mixed with salt.
    And check before you snort random chems. Will save you a shitload of discomfort and probably some money, not to mention preserve your dignity

    Ssri's have no recreational effects. This has been stated in pretty much every single thread in the anti-depressant forum.

    SSRI's don't work like this at all. Please do some research before putting new drugs up your nose

    ssri's hurt extremely bad to snort, worse than a 2c-x why would you do this. I've snorted some stupid shit too when I was younger that's how I know that shit like that is not to be fucked with. It doesn't even fuck you up.

    The effects of prozac can take several weeks to help a depressed person. Why would you want to take them recreationally? You don't get any "buzz" from SSRI's.

    Um, prozac has absolutely no recreational value? Nor do any anti-depressants. Why on earth would you snort prozac?

    Wow lol, dumbest idea I've heard in awhile. Prozac takes a few weeks to start working anyways, not to mention Prozac sucks as an anxiety medicine (for me at least)

    Snorting Prozac is like snorting battery acid, it burns and does nothing to achieve a high. I've been on it for years now and have had friends who have tried snorting them. Horrible idea!!!!

    All SSRI's, including fluoxetine (Prozac) do not have recreational value.!!!!!
    Sorry my DF friend, if you're searching ways to get 'high', try some real drugs next time.
    Bad idea.
    Thank you ;)

    Drinking water and washing your nose with salty water may help. Don't snort this kind of medication. They don't give you any kind of buzz.

    With all due respect to whomever is negative rating these post, this is listed under Antidepressants - Effects. ;) -- and it is true the effect will not be euphoric or a pleasant sought after high

    Short answer: Phaze hates insulating (snorting) anything and has learned you can wash your nose out by holding water in the back of your mouth and forcing it out through your nose. This will be painful as is anything else spat out your nose, IE: soda or even water. But, will serve the purpose of cleansing your nostrils out. Think of it like pulling a thorn from a puppy, it hurts at the time, then he is off to roam about happy as before.

    ________

    As a teenager Phaze also snorted Prozac, which made him sweat profusely among having severe nausea and diarrhea. He was agitated and displayed what can be called no less than fits of rage. Read up on serotonin syndrome.

    Reading the overdose symptoms he obviously didn't realize how serious it could've been.
