It's been a while since I had been without oxy. I had been using Kratom for a while, I was taking about 5-6 grams a day
I had been using Kratom for a while, I was taking about 5-6 grams a day
in capsule form. However, I had been missing that oxy feeling and I found a bunch of generic Imodium AD in my closet and remembered that someone said online it could "give you an opiate like high". I already had like super bad diarrhea so I thought, why not? Perfect time to try it.
Now, before I try anything new I have to seriously research it to make sure I'm not going to friggin kill myself. So I looked up the dosage that I had (18 pills which makes for 36mg) and made sure that it wasn't going to mess with me too much (besides making me not being able to poop for a week). Loperamide doesn't cross the blood brain barrier very easily, and I knew that going in I might not get a high like I wanted, the recommeded dosage to get "high" is like 100mg and I wasn't about to do that, so my expectations were extremely low.
Before I go into my experience, I want to say for the sake of harm reduction that I really DO NOT recommend doing this drug. There are way too many things that could go wrong and if a person has an addictive personality (like me), it might take them down a bad road if they have too good of an experience with it. Fortunately for me, it was "nice" but it wasn't mind-blowing amazing like oxy was for me.
0 hrs: took half of the pills (9, 18mg) and waited.
1 hr: took the other half of the pills and waited a bit more.
3 hrs: Started to feel a little light-headed, pleasant feeling of relaxation setting in.
4 hrs: Began watching a series with my wife, had a little wine (I had a VERY SMALL amount of wine mixed with juice and I probably shouldn't have done that but I was stupid. ) and I felt the effects of the wine super quickly. I was not drinking a lot at all-- maybe a half glass of wine mixed with juice and seltzer.
6-8 hrs: Feeling relaxed, laid down, made myself comfortable. Ended up going to sleep.
Next morning: Woke up with a weird after-glow feeling. I was still very drowsy, my head was really heavy and I had horrible gas (obviously lol). I don't feel high right now (It has been about 24 hrs since I took the stuff) but I feel nice.
Overall I did not a huge amount of this drug so I was not expecting to get high. However, I felt like I did get a sort of "buzz" which was an enjoyable experience. Would I do it again? Probably not.
Would I do it again? Probably not.
There are way too many horror stories about people going to the hospital when they fuck with this drug. Also, it can back you up really badly. Yeah, it's cheap, but for the experience it really isn't worth it. I miss oxy but not enough to ruin my body for a cheap/dirty high.
