    (SWIM used the search engine before posting)
    So SWIM was wondering if Zoloft can be used for recreational effects?
    And also if it can be used by insufflating.

    Sorry, an SSRI has no recreational value. Please do not try this

    Blink has SWIY covered. Drug's that take a long period of time to build up a baseline blood serum level (several weeks) are completely useless of immediate use. The most SWIY might accomplish with a truckoad of Sertraline in your body is case of Serotonin storm, which could, kill you...without even giving you a decent trip to go out on.

    Best of Luck,

    Speaking from personal experience of "heroic" quantities of SNRI's and Tetracyclic Antidepressants; if SWIY's (un)lucky enough to survive the experience, the result is what's known as "serotonin-toxicity". In it's most mild effects it results in substantial stimulation and, visually, the strange "silver flecks" that one sees immediately prior to the tunnel-vision that precedes fainting. There's a tingling sensation on the skin (especially of the face) and significant nausea without any emesis. That means no relief, either.

    All told, the best one could hope for is discomfort. Please don't try it.

    Let me save you a lot of pain, SWIM snorted sertraline ONCE as a teen and it was the worse pain he felt from snorting a drug, it is not even worth it even if it did make you high which it doesn't. It hurts for hours and it's a stupid thing to do, I have never done it since that first time. Also if you're going to snort drugs, be picky and do it seldom, snorting all sorts of things and a lot over time will damage your nasal cavities.
