So i know theres a thread and i read most of it. So i saw a divide between eating and snorting them. So Lorazepam has a high nasal avail...


What do you guys prefer if you ahve tried to snort a few MGs

I have a few here, and I am considering trying them for the "psychadelic" effects people are speaking of. About snorting them I don't know, but I will follow this post cause if they do have a high BA by snorting I will give it a shot!

snorting will do nothing but make your nose cold as hell. just place them under your tongue

Psychedelic effects? That's BS. Kind of like the few that claim to get high from eating lots of lope. The BA of snorting is extemely low, honestly it's a waste of meds. For someone with no or low benzo tolerance, Ativan is a pretty strong benzo.

Not true psychedelic effects, sid3. But many people report having some strange effects from lorazepam. Even I recently made a post about this. It felt so much different than other benzos. Not true hallucinations, but something was there. A small red dot kept shooting across the room. I was very confused.

i've heard of people getting strange hallucinogen-like effects from ativan. never expierenced them myself though. just feels like a straight benzo, and a good one IMO. sublingual for the win, oral if you are unwilling to keep your mouth closed for a bit.

most people on bluelight have no idea what the intranasal bioavailablity of lorazepam is, but they are correct in saying it is best not snorted.

doing excessive amounts of lorazepam can lead to extreme times one may not have control over nor remember. said with experience

I know a girl who gets the weird affects off of ativan, to me it's just another generic benzo. And for the six trillionth time snorting benzos is pointless.

theres a lot of better benzos out there, ativan sucks for rec use

ativan works for anxiety etc. its great for alcohol withdrawals as well.

with that said, when I first started taking ativan for anxiety at 1mg, doubling the dose made me see floaters in the corners of my eyes. its hard to explain but there is a "trippiness" to it and ataxia is more pronounced than with other benzos such as xanax

so i ate 7 1mg pills and just feel great. Like no visuals or anything but i mean if you take enough you can get a nice effect



There is one thing i can say about people that have psychedelic experiences on ativan. At around 8MG dosages and weed and other fun stuff i def heard auditory noices like songs that weren't being playing from anyway..... anyone know or hve experience with this?

Im scripted Ativan (2mg a day) and this shit is awsome. IMO xanax is the most powerful benzo, but this shit is still good. my highest dose was 14mg and i think it was awsome lol

Your barking up the wrong tree if your looking for psychedelic effects from this particular drug. You could possible take a large enough dose to become completely detached from reality, but that can be done with ANYTHING. I'll add also, seconding what others have said, benzos are best enjoyed sublingually. I don't have science to back this up, but I don't believe that lorazepam is water soluble, and for this reason won't be readily absorbed by the mucous membranes in your sinuses.

Swallow it, or put it under your tongue man.

Actually, recently i have found snorting it gives me a "rush", but ends quickly, but im going back to sublingual becuase its to much of a hassle to snort

That's cool man, if it works for you. It's possible that it's just placebo though, the rush you're experiencing. In all honesty I'd say that benzos don't really have a rush period, and I've had them in a drip.

Could be, but i still got buzzed, but probably not as much as if i had taken them under the tongue

xanax is not the strongest benzo. Ever try triazolam? It is about 4x as potent as alprazolam mg per mg.

shit is addicting shit. withers you down, has negating effects on the body. it basically depletes/drains it. mom took 1mg and even up to 2 for many months on a daily basis for sleep, got an addiction and lost allot of weight. wouldnt feel ok nor would be able to sleep without the drug.

its alright, itll fuck you up if exceed 2mg and could even get a powerful effect from just 2 by itself. or if you combine it with weed which works wonders.

you will be benzo'd as fuck and in full blown depressant euphoria, combining these 2 could induce a tr1p.

I am going back on Diazepam tomorrow. This drug IS Sedating, relieves anxiety better than most but for me it does what klonopin did, and that was make me feel very VERY depressed. I lost my balance last night and I only took 4mgs and a .5 klonopin mind you I was on 4mgs of xanax before this. I hate ativan. it makes you turn into JELLO! I think it makes food taste a LITTLE funky too. Diazepam for me will always be a win as it lasts forever and never makes me see shit wobble as if I were on a psychedelic drug but a really boring lame one.

^Just because lorazepam doesn't work for somebody else doesn't mean it won't work for you.

This question has been discussed many, many times...

WHAT!? I am saying ativan fucks me up to much. I do not like the effects and have been on it for over a week now. I almost hurt myself falling down a flight of concrete stairs last night and I dont drink or excessivly pop them. I took 4mgs of Ativan. I take 4mgs to get me by. It gives me a really unsettling feeling any higher or lower.

I still say no, no trip. I'm prescribed lorazepam and think it works wonders for anxiety, but by no means should you be snorting it first of all (to address previous posts) and second of all, any benzo + weed is always a nice combo, nothing about lorazepam in particular.

Ativan seems to have the same effects as the other benzo's I use/have used but I guess YMMV.

Yeah, I feel like I just jumped in here to defend lorazepam, haha, since I know both NT and myself are big fans of it for anxiety. Different things work for different people, but it's still a benzo, so don't snort it/no its not psychedelic (you can actually use it if a psych trip gets too outta hand, that's the only extent benzos are even mentioned in discussion of psychedelics).

Yes, this question has come up many times, but now I think it's been sufficiently answered, particularly because it's a bumped older thread. Closed.

EDIT: guess we know what I was thinking about with the thread close note...see last poSt, not pot <3
