My Worst Combination-drug-Abuse OD Ever Last week a friend of Swim put this to paper: Ephedrine, Caffeine, Aspirin & Codeine by Swimf (someone who is my friend) Swim finally have decided to submit a report from a massive drug overdose, Swim almost died from. It happened 2 years ago. First a little background information about Swim: I was at the time a senior in high school (male-18y). Great shape, excercising about five times a week at the time. I had/have great grades and consider Myelf intelligent. I have always (since junior grade) used stimulants (ephedrine, caffeine and at times meth), later I have tried MDMA, shrooms etc, but never on the 'druggie-head-level'. I was at the time on a field trip to Geneva (physics class to CERN, etc.). The night before I was at a bar and was drinking quite heavily. The morning after I had a hung over. I had a few TREO (a total of 1000mg aspirin + 100 mg caffeine). Swim also had a few kodimagnyl (additional 1000mg aspirin + 32mg codeine), because of the very heavy headache, from the day before. Before breakfast I wanted a little 'pick Swim up', so I did about 10 ephedrine pills (herbal ephedra, not very potent). I have done this dose of ephedra many times before (7), and is quite suitable for Swim. At breakfast I was feeling a little better, but quite lightheaded. Swim still don't know why I did this, but never the less, I did a additional 500mg pure caffeine at breakfast. At this point I was looking quite normal, but I was very lightheaded. Swim guesses I had forgotton the kodymagnyl I had done before, so I did another two (=1000mg aspirin + 32mg codeine). My were on our way to CERN (the particle accelerator). On the way there, I could not stop laughing. It was so imberrasing, because My physics teacher (which Swim respect very much), was with Swim in the bus, along with My classmates and some researchers. Swim guesses Swim thought 'what the hell', this is fun and did a couple of more ephedrine (4 or 5) and a couple of caffeine pills. A little later Swimmas went down in the CERN (100 meters underground) for a tour. There where researchers, which gave a very interesting presentation, but I could not sit still (I REALLY COULDNT). Swim kept falling off My chair and laughing. Swimmas went for a small tour, and suddenly I went VERY dizzy. Swim sat down at a table and passed out. I was behind a crowd, so no one noticed. Swim awoke about 3 minutes later, and I feltlike something was soooo wrong with Swim (physically). My heart pounded about 220 bpm, very very irregulary and Swim sweated like a pig. I could not see or stand. I was sure I would have a heart attack. I wanted to shout for a doctor, but I was not able to talk (I am glad now, it would have been very imberrasing). Swim dragged Myelf outside the room and induced vomiting (which probably more or less saved Swim). Swim calmed down a little bit and had a good friend held Swim up to the surface. Swim sat down in the sunny weather and had an ice cream. My head felt so wrong (the hangover was a blessing compared to this). It was aching, pounding and My vision was very blurred. Swim thought I had permanently hurt Myelf. The day finally dragged itself to an end and I got home to the hotel. I could not sleep before 5 in the morning and felt bad for the three last days. Swim swore I would never touch ephedra again, but now I have a controlled use (eg two pills, before a party) maybe once a month, and Swim never combines it with any other drugs. The morale of the story is: THINK! I was unforgivably stupid that day. I had no idea what I was thinking. Swim knew the dangers of ephedra, etc. Swim just hope My post, can prevent others from redoing My mistake! Good luck regards, Swimf.
