Everyone on here seems to be in agreement that benzo are the best potentiate of opiates. Now I agree fully that they increase the sedation depressant effects of an opiate. I also know itís a very significant and dangerous potentiating. Personally I once ODíed from the combo. I usually shot 2 bags at one time and I forgot that I took a "Tic Tac" (1mg, most people prefer to call them 'Footballs') of Xanax about 6 hours prior, since the effects wore off. Now I cooked up the 2 bag of dope as I usually do from a batch whose strength I was familiar with and tried recently.
While IV'ing it - for some reason which I can't explain to this day out of about 90 units in the rig I stopped at 50 units. I never did that before yet a little voice in the back of my head told me to stop. Well I did, I took the rig out was able to walk out of the bathroom to my couch where my friend was and remember saying that Iím really fucked up. The next thing I remember was waking up several hours later.
According to my friend I fell out right there. He did everything possible to wake me up throwing water on me, slapping me, etc... Finally by luck he found my vial of narcan and muscled a CC of that and I woke up a few minutes later. So yes definitely it makes the sedation and depressant properties MUCH stronger. If I shot the whole rig as was normal I would have most definitely died as my friend didn't know where my narcan was hidden and took him a while to find out (a BIG mistake on my part, from now on itís a rule of my mine that everyone thatís there when I use knows where my Narcan is and I usually already have a shot prepared).
As a side note I always have the shot prepared and hitting in my lap because when I OD I always have a good 3 minutes before I go unconscious and I feel the OD coming unless I take Way to much dope to where itís almost instantaneous and anyways I have Narcan myself before in that 3 minutes window and definitely saved my life cause I still got a killer (no pun intended) rush and got way the fuck up regardless of the Narcan).. The scary thing is when I snapped out of it I was still severely fucked up. I thought I might have given myself brain damage because everything sounded muted, basically I had a ďbell ringer" even though there was no coke in the shot ( I sure wished there was for about half an hour after I woke up.
Now my question is that while it might make the nod stronger once you have a good habit going the nod really becomes a thing of the past and all that you really look forward to when you IV dope is for the rush so I don't care about the nod. My question is do benzos actually have any effect of the "euphoric" qualities of the opioid. Personally in my limited experience I gotta say that NO it will only make you nod harder and possibly fall out. Any thoughts or opinions on this debate, It seems to me that he only things that potentiate the actual euphoria and most importantly to me the rush you get are : cocaine, antihistamines such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) which also happens to be the cut of choice in Chicago dope) and perhaps a few beers beforehand or some Ketamine which Iíve read lowers your opiate tolerance temporarily at least while your sill fucked up from the Ketamine then you'll feel the dope better, so I guess the same might go for both DXM, and maybe PCP. two other disaccociative drugs that affect the NMDA system. Thanks.
