I didn't go into this with any intentions of getting high. I have been drinking more than my fair share of kratom lately, and having stopped I'm starting to feel some withdrawal symptoms. Cold sweats, fatigue, restlessness, anxiety, etc.. I decided I wanted to give the whole poor-mans-methadone a try, so I picked up some generic loperamide.
Some time ago, I remember trying to catch a buzz off lope when I was opiate naive (and rather naive in general). I read all sorts of stuff here on BL and also other places on how you could eat upwards of 100mg and get loaded, tried it, didn't get much but didn't die either.
0:00 - I got home and immediately ate 24mg. Within a half hour, not only did my withdrawal symptoms completely subside but I started to feel 'altered'. I remember last time I took lope for legitimate d+, I thought I felt something that time too, which made me look into it, which made me discover that people were eating them by the bottles to get high. This time, once again, I started feeling drug like effects, so I sat down at the computer and started searching again.
+0:30 - I found that adding some cimetidine and omeprazole to the mix could potentially assist the lope in crossing the BBB. I was still pretty skeptical having tried getting high on lope before, however I still could not ignore these borderline-placebo effects. I had both Tagamet and Prilosec on hand, so I popped 400mg and 20mg respectively.
+1:00 - I'm starting to notice visual changes. I'm going to officially say were past placebo at this point. Something is going on, I feel body warmth, actually quite reminiscent of an opiate high but different. This body high continues to build and build to where it can't be ignored. I'm noticing vertigo and lightheadedness while sitting at my desk. If I get up and walk around, the body high absolutely cannot be ignored. I feel impaired and would not want to have to drive right now!!
+1:15 - I decide to smoke a bowl of cannabis. I smoke all day, every day, so my tolerance is extremely high. I had also smoked earlier today, but again, my tolerance and usage is so high and frequent that I don't even bother to factor it in to trip reports unless I specifically abstain. Having said that, after that bowl, I was WAYYYYYYY more stoned than I should have gotten from one simple bowl. At this point, I was incapable of driving.
+2:00 - I crush up another 24mg and put it into water. I shook it up real good then strained it out through a coffee filter and drank it. I read about how the inactive ingredient magnesium stearate found in Immodium pills could be an attribute to it not passing the BBB, how it is water insoluable, and how if it is removed the lope could have a better chance at my noggin.
+3:00 - At this point, I'm pretty messed up. The cannabis from earlier is wearing off leaving behind the far more apparent lope 'alterations'. I can feel the differences in my breathing, it feels heavier. My vision is all sorts of weird, I swear colors look sharper and also the nightlight in my bathroom was leaving vivid trails. I stared at myself in the mirror and everything looked the way it looks when mushrooms are just starting to kick in. I never experienced this with any opiate before. This vision weirdness sticks with me pretty much for the rest of the day. The body high is also very intense at this point especially when I move around. I also noted that I was quite sedated. Upon looking at myself in the mirror, I looked LOADED.
It's about +12 hours since I first ingested the lope and I'm starting to feel leveled out, but still definitely under the influence of.....something. It doesn't feel like an opiate though. I have had sensations and visions very reminiscent of the very beginnings of a mushroom trip. I was laying in bed literally watching my walls and floor breathe and float around. Colors seemed enhanced and focusing on things was difficult.
Weird stuff. I probably won't do that again. It wasn't necessarily bad, but not exactly enjoyable either. It felt taxing on the body and that's not worth it without some good ol' euphoria.
