310 mg oral Diphenidine (powder / crystals)


Diphenidine WARNING (orally vs. internasal)
I tried Diphenidine as a substitute for Ketamine. After hammering mountains of K over the years my tolerance had grown so much that it was costing me a bomb and I wasn't really getting much from it. I thought I'd try Diphenidine and methoxetamine as they seemed to be the two substitutes on the research chemical market.

I'd always insufflated/sniffed ketamine, so I tried the same with these two. I found the methoxetamine fairly easy on the nose but didn't really do much, the Diphenidine on the other hand was horrible to sniff and blocked my nose up almost straight away. I persevered with it, but found it didn't really do much. The next night, when I had about 1/3 of the bag left (310mg to be precise, I weighed it out of curiosity), I decided to take it orally... all at once BIG MISTAKE!

At first I was happy that it was actually giving me a hit - and was a nice feeling (similar to ketamine), but the feeling got stronger, and stronger and stronger...until I was completely fucked. ! I started to shit myself as I knew I could do nothing about the stuff already in my stomach, and ended up staggering upstairs and telling my wife I thought I was going to die. (not properly conscious at this point, obviously)

The next part I can't remember myself but was told my by wife and the paramedics/doctors....

I asked her to ring my an ambulance but couldn't talk properly enough to explain what I'd taken/done. Ended up being taken to A&E in an ambulance and woke up three hours later attached to loads of monitoring equipment in a hospital bed! In the meantime I'd apparently tried to stand up in this bed (attached to all the equipment) and had to be restrain by the security people. I can't remember any of this!

Anyway the reason I've bothered to write this post (I usually just read other people's posts) is to warn everyone that:

1) Diphenidine taken orally is completely different to sniffing it.
(The latter does nothing apart from block my nose, the former can to what I've described above!)

2) An oral dose of 310mg of diphenidine is far too high.
I'd even already read on other posts that 50-100mg was recommended , and 125mg was a very high oral dose, but thought I could handle more due to my ketamine history/tolerance, and the fact that sniffing ~600mg the previous nights had done nothing to me. Silly boy!

So that's my story. If you do plan to try diphenidine, DO take it orally, but DON'T take more than a very small quantity at first.

Apologies if you've read this post before, I just wanted to spread the warning around as much as possible to prevent anyone else ending up in A&E and wasting the resources of the already overstretched paramedics and nurses (who were fantastically nice to me considering how stupid I'd been!).
