I’ve dumped a total of 45 x 5 mg dexamphetamine tablets over the
course of the night. I mean, fucking hell! That justifies a bit of
profanity…45 tablets is nearly half of my script! Gone, either digested
or absorbed through my sinuses. That’s unacceptable! 225 mgs over a 10
hour period…half of my script consumed in a night. 🙁 Jesus wept.
Forgive the blasphemy (on the day of the Lord somemore) but I’m not due
to refill my script until 23 more days and half of it is already gone!
I did feel a very good rush during my initial dose of 80 mgs orally and
20 mg insufflated, but after that it was just maintenance doses to keep
me awake. I’m planning to stay up until late tonight.
I would weep for the amount of dexamphetamine that was wasted, but
there’s no use crying over spilt milk (or consumed dexies for that
matter). It’s just an issue of tolerance and that’s unavoidable, but I
was wondering if there’s any way to maximize the efficiency of the
dexamphetamine tablets. I still need more to be able to stay up until
late tonight. I did a bit of research for amphetamine potentiators
(things that causes a synergetic effect and makes the drug stronger or
last longer), but didn’t find anything noteworthy until I chanced upon
this tidbit of information on [rxlist.com]:
Gastrointestinal alkalinizing agents (sodium bicarbonate, etc.)
increase absorption of amphetamines. Urinary alkalinizing agents
(acetazolamide, some thiazides) increase the concentration of the
non-ionized species of the amphetamine molecule, thereby decreasing
urinary excretion. Both groups by agents increase blood levels and
therefore potentiate the action of amphetamines.
Increase absorption of amphetamines! Potentiate the action of
amphetamines! Those are magic words…music to my ears! =D Praise the
Lord! Sodium bicarbonate…that’s baking powder! I did some more reading
and found out that taking dexamphetamine an hour or so after
alkalinizing your GI tract will increase the effects. Why wasn’t I
aware of this earlier?!?! Curse you (I mean me), for not doing your
Today is a Sunday and I couldn’t be bothered going far to buy some
baking soda so I went to the local café instead. This was how the
Me: Hello, this is going to sound like a strange request, but can I buy some baking powder off you? I have really bad gastric…
Girl at the counter: Baking powder? Okay, let me get some.
(takes a plastic cup and goes into a kitchen)
1 minute later…
(the cook comes out holding the cup with the girl at the counter)
Cook: Hello, are you the one with the stomach problem?
Me: Yeah, I need some baking powder for my gastric. Can I buy some off you?
Cook: I can give you some, but it’s not going to help your stomach.
Me: It has always worked before, it neutralizes the acids in my stomach.
Cook: Okay, give me a second
(goes back into the kitchen)
30 seconds later…
Cook: Here you go. No charge.
(hands me the cup full of baking powder)
Me: No, let me pay you for it.
Cook: Don’t worry about it, I’ll give it to you.
Me: Okay, thanks!
I felt bad about getting the baking soda for free, so I bought a
pear (which I read was also an alkaline food) for 70 cents. Yes, I’ve
done a lot of reading and contrary to popular belief, fruits are
alkaline while milk is acidic! Apparently, there’s a difference between
the chemical properties (we all learnt in chemistry that fruits are
acidic using the PH testing strips) while nutrition wise, it’s
alkaline! Milk, which one would assume is an alkaline is in fact acidic
in nutrition (after your body processes it). Well, you learn something
My stomach has been very acidic the whole night, I could feel it and
I was about to puke my stomach acids out, so I wasn’t really being
untruthful about my gastric. No wonder the pills didn’t work so well.
Here’s another related tidbit from the wonderful rxlist.com entry on
Gastrointestinal acidifying agents (guanethidine, reserpine,
glutamic acid HCl, ascorbic acid, fruit juices, etc.) lower absorption
of amphetamines, Urinary acidifying agents (ammonium chloride, sodium
acid phosphate, etc.) increase the concentration of the ionized species
of the amphetamine molecule, thereby increasing urinary excretion. Both
groups of agents lower blood levels and efficacy of amphetamines.
No wonder! I wasn’t getting the full potential of the precious
little pills due to my acidic stomach. Lower absorption of
amphetamines! Lower blood levels and efficacy of amphetamines! Heresy!
Such dirty, disgusting, filthy, revolting, repulsive, sickening,
horribly blasphemous words! Get thee behind me Satan! No acidic foods
for me today! *makes a sign to ward off evil*
Anyway, the cook gave me a lot of baking soda even though I only
asked for two teaspoons. I dissolved 4 heaped teaspoons of baking soda
(or sodium bicarbonate if you want to be technical about it) into a mug
of water and drank it. 1 hour later, I dropped 6 pills and by God, I
was peaking again! That was 30 minutes ago, and I’m still feeling great
now! It wasn’t as good as the first dose, naturally, but I did feel
rushes this time. I don’t know how much is placebo and how much is
actual pharmacology but if rxlist.com says it’s true, that’s good
enough for me. 🙂
Just passing the information on…amphetamines can not only be potentiated, but the effects prolonged
by a simple kitchen item! Good old baking soda! Amazing…you really do
learn something new everyday. How I wish I knew about this sooner. I’m
going to change the PH levels of my GI tract to lean towards the
alkaline side every time I take dexamphetamines! More value, more
effects, more more more! I love you rxlist.com! Praise the Lord!
Hallelujah! He works in mysterious ways indeed! 🙂
