Q: I have 10mg valium (generic). I want to convert them into an injectable solution. How do I do that? I did not know if boiling them into a liquid using water is safe to inject with all of the coloring, and glues.

A: You should not use any pill to make an injectable solution. For one thing, your intended drug is likely insoluble in water in the pill. Second, the binding agents, dyes, and so forth can be very harmful. Some people who inject pills intra-muscularaly (I.M.) report painful hard lumps in the area near the injection point for days or weeks afterwards. Injecting pill contents directly into your blood stream (I.V.) is extremely hazardous and life-threatening. Pills are meant to be injested orally. Please do not try and inject them.
