A few weeks ago I heard here on Bluelight about the benzedrex inhalers, so of course, I had to try it for myself. I've consumed several of those inhalers during that interim, and thought it was time for a trip report... actually, this is more of a description of what I found is the best way to use them.
First off, it is best to do these is on a full stomach. If you have an empty stomach, you will absorb all of the 'good stuff' very quickly, you'll come on very quickly, your buzz will leave you very quickly, and your come down will be worse. On top of a lot of food, it takes a lot longer to absorb, so coming up takes a lot more time, but the buzz lasts a lot longer... although it isn't as intense.
I've never soaked the cotton... I always just eat them after cutting it into three pieces. I haven't had any problems yet, and I've done quite a few of these lately, sometimes a few hours apart. I've heard some people say they've had 'blockage' problems, but so far I've experienced none. The taste is quite nasty, but I find that if I put the cotton on my tongue (not near the back of the throat) and swallow it quickly with something that has a strong flavor like orange juice, I hardly taste it at all and I don't gag.
Usually (on a full stomach) it takes about an hour to start coming up. From there, it comes on slowly for about another hour, until it feels like I've taken about 3 or 4 adderalls. This feeling continues at full power for another two hours normally, and during this time I am very chatty and euphoric. For some reason however, I don't feel the craving to smoke as much, which is really wierd, because usually on speed I smoke like a chimney. Don't ask me, thats just how it works (for me anyway).
After a good three hours, I start to come down somewhat. The comedown lasts for about another two or three hours until I am almost completely back to baseline. I can usually sleep just fine if I don't take it too late in the day... 3:00 in the afternoon is usually the latest I'll take it unless I want to be up until 2:00 in the morning. I can always get to sleep though, no problem, and even eat on the same day too, which is never the case with adderall. If I take enough adderall in one day to actually catch a good buzz, I can forget about food and sleep for at least 24 hours. Thats one thing I like about the benzedrex, I can sleep and eat on the same day.
This report assumes that you take it on a full stomach. If taken on an empty stomach, take the description I just told you and cut it by half time wise, with a higher buzz by about 1/2. The problem with taking them like this for me is that when I do come down, I have extreme anxiety and my stomach feels very yucky and empty. My mood also goes way down and I just feel like shit overall. I've done it both ways many times, and invariably I always feel a lot better coming down if I've taken it on a full stomach.
Another thing about the benzedrex when compared to adderall. With adderall, I can never dose again the next day. Even after I've come down and slept a good eight hours, I still have to wait through that day too (basically two sleeps) before I can dose again, or else I will just get extremely jittery and anxious. With the benzedrex, I can dose again right after my first buzz is coming down and kick it back in full speed (however, the comedown really sucks if I do this). After I sleep it off, I can dose again the next day and get the same effects. Only once have I had a negative experience, and that was when I tried to dose three days in a row. The third day, I felt the great euphoria, but it only lasted for about 30 minutes and then the rest of the day I just had that horrible empty stomach anxiety and dread feeling.
So, based on my personal experience with these benzedrex inhalers, take them on an empty stomach and don't dose twice in one day unless you're willing to pay with the come down.
