Good ole ludesI'm glad you remembered the Sopors...God the insanity ludes brought on...So much incredibly nasty sex. The only true orgies I ever attended were parties where there was a fairly large container of 714's at the front door and an empty one next to it in which everyone placed their car keys. They were the only drug that caused attractive women to actually just grab you and startgoing at it. The inhibitions just disappeared. I did lose a couple of friends to quaalude related car wrecks.
They were so much more tactile and just plain happy than any barbituate ( which were also available in excess back then- seconal; tuinal nembutal etc) that they really had to be outlawed. Anyone who ever took one knew immediately what a waste it was to go to sleep on them just HAD to abuse them. I never even wanted to go to sleep on them. I COULD sleep; no problem; but I was having so much fun I wouldnt even consider it....I'm so glad that I was young then. No way I could have that much sex now. On a side note long term use destroyed your night vision or color vision. Thanks for the memories.
ISTR some folks on an RC board getting hold of a batch of etaqualone and discovering that the dosage which gets you high is uncomfortably close to the dosage which causes seizures. There was some controversy as to whether this was due to the etaqualone or to a tainted batch.Anyone here familiar with etaqualone? I would appriciate hearing personal experiences before i decide if it's worth aquiring some.
A sedative antihistamine will add to the drowsiness and, I'm not sure, I'm too lazy to go check, maybe has metabolic potentiation.Trick question: why is diphenhydramine (benadryl) put into mandrax pills along with methaqualone instead of marketing the pills with just methaqualone like Qualudes (Rorer 714s) and Parest methaqualone. What is the rationale of the drug manufacture or in this case toquiolone, the only place I know ludes are still Rx in Switzerland. They add benadryl too. What do you think the rationale is?
[Just watched the documentary on the mandrax users in south africa. Why would they smoke the stuff when it would be perfectly fine not to mention much easier on the lungs just to eat the pills? Id eat my mandrax and smoke my weed./QUOTE] For the rush/ quick euphoric effect they get. Aparently some pass out or go down to the ground right away. Whats bizarre is that the doses come as tabs (buttons)- even though they are mostly crushed. The rationale is the bigger the pill the better the stuff and in pills there is less of a chance of them being adulturated.
Anwer to the question- diphenhydramine is used less for its sedative effect but because it interfers with the metabolism of methaqualone thus increasing plasma levels/ duration as the previous poster postulated.
Another trick question: what is the only country lrft were one can still legally get an Rx for methaqualone. ? I believe its the last place on earth (SA isnt the answer- its illicit there). What is the name of the formulation. Bonus question, in what country are these drugs synthesized for said drugs formulary.
That country is South Africa!Coke and madrax are a classic combination. With Tik (meth to the rest of the world, barbs like seconal and nembutal or amytal were the perfect match) but these drugs aren't made much anymore. They just released seconal again in the US recently but it is not in midespread use. Mandrax and maybe a glass of wine or a tinny bit of xanax would probably be great for the comedown because of the similarities in mechanism of action between barbs and mandax, though not perfect. Nothing says you can't take the buttons orally. Moreover, with mandax's prosexual effects, mught be a way to reinvigorate a tik fueled sex session when the jitteryness is creeping in. Who knows, the aphrodisiac effect might be synergistic.
Quiz question stands, were is the only country were you can get methaqualone Rxed legally and what is the formulation's name ( and what is the country the pharmaceutical lab that produces it- I leave this question in because it is Ironic, a country with some of the most druconian drug laws.
Thanks for the info! But sorry, thats not the correct answer to the question. I was asking about were methaqualone is still in medical use (legally Rxed). The trade in South Africa, is to my knowledge all illicit. It is focus near Cape Town, in particular the Cape Flats. The drug is popular among certain ethnic groups, I believe the coulered and the blacks. Possibly the Indian community as well. If I'm not mistaken, the Indian mafia controls the mandrax trade but take that with a grain of salt. That would make sense because alot of precursors are produced there by the thriving chem industry. There were a few bust near Mumbai and other parts of the country in recent years.Commonly known as Mandrax, M-pills buttons, or smarties, it is not taken orally but is crushed and mixed in a pipe with marijuana. Methaqualone is one of the most commonly used hard drugs in South Africa. The low price (South African Rand 30 R average, which is about USD $3.98 (as of May 22, 2010) or EUR 3.24 € (as of June 2010)) of methaqualone together with the ready availability of cheap, low-grade marijuana make it (in addition to methamphetamine and temazepam) the preferred hard drug of the low-income section of South African society.
The drug is also big in Nambia apparently by the blacks and whites in roughly equal numbers who are German speaking if I'm not mistaken (along with a multitude of other languages).Labs producing methaqualone have been found in several African countries, including Kenya, Mozambique, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, and South Africa.
Having said that- the drug itself is apparently so reiforcing, that its weird its hasn't caught on among the more well to do clubbers. In New York, FYI, there was a big drug bust of a lude making ring based in Lond Island or Broklyn, and Los Angeles. Apparently, there was a huge market for it on the upper east side, if posts are to be believed. But lots of pills were confiscated. This was back in april, I think.The white pipe experience is an intense one. The initial rush is so powerful that many users 'ert' or 'earth' immediately after use. They lose conciousness of their surroundings and fall to the ground drooling. The total loss of control means that mandrax (Mx) can only be smoked among trusted companions, which reinforces the social nature of the drug." Aparently once this stage is over, users slip into a euphoric peaceful state that that has been likened to heroin intoxication but with more incoordination.
