This thread is specificly about Benzos but you can respond with Opiates too.
This has been a debated topic among doctors and nurses ive seen. Ive always felt that eating food with or having just ate/about to eat after taking the pills will cut down significantly on the potency of benzos or opiates.
I remember one time way back when, when 2 5mg percocets got me rocked(now id need about 50). I ate a huge ziti dinner lots of carbs and then i took two percs and felt hardly anything and i obviously deducted it was from the food.
I also noticed on my old percocet scripts/vicodin scripts/ and now my xanax scripts from CVS and other pharms say "taking this medicine with food may decrease its effectiveness"
So Yay or Nay?
And if yay then how much do you think it reduces the effectives of benzos and or opiates or what exactly does it do?
And whats your experience with eating and taking these types of drugs?
*Just as a precaution i dont take any pills until 3 hours or more after ive ate or 1 hour or more until i eat (because by then the pill has dissolved, in my bloodstream and kicked in)
