For those of the people who aren't you that take or have taken an antipsychotic, has SWIY ever crushed and insufflated SWIY's medicine to have a quicker onset of symptomatic relief?
Insufflating antipsychotics generally does not yield a higher bioavailability, but it is important to look the oral BA up before trying this.
Just a warning.
, this method of administration can essentially eliminate the need to ever go to a psychiatric hospital. In the hospital, they would give SWIY an IM injection for quick relief, which SWIY can't do at home. However, one can do this at home to have symptoms relieved in 2 minutes or so (from SWIM's experience). That is a big deal considering many antipsychotics take 45 minutes to work orally.
SWIM discovered this about 6 months ago. He was in a horrible agitated depression and desperately snorted a crushed up 20mg Zyprexa (olanzapine). He felt completely better in 2 minutes and fell asleep in 10 minutes.
Any one else besides SWIM try this?
SWIM would only recommend this for extreme
agitation or delusions associated with schizophrenia or bipolar mixed states.
