Possible recreational value in combination with other downers
or to take the edge off stimulants
. I could see it used for come-downs off coke
binges and the like, remember never take beta-blockers with coke, it can make the hypertension
Then again, you're talking about dangerous territory, downers + downers is usually a successful combo for recreational purposes, some times TOO successful, leaving you in a pine box.
I would say it's somewhat similar to xanax
, not at all like a sedating anti-histamine, it's much more of a comfortable drowsiness... Taking it makes you think as if there is euphoria
but it's just not quite
there. Maybe like if you are in the right state of mind or in combination with opiates
it's euphoric. It does instill a sense of "peace" and "calm" but just of the common every day variety, and does not seem to make one "tired" as much as "relaxed."
Definitely acceptable for taking the edge off stimulants, but benzos
are superior in this regard. It is not a heavy sedation, it feels light and comfortable, a subtle medication in swim
is excellent for opiate
W/D as well, one of the better meds out there, Swim finds that taking benzos alone during opiate W/D makes him feel a bit irritated and the effects are somewhat paradoxical. Benzo
's can have this effect, clonidine seems to remove a lot of the physical W/D symptoms including nausea & lessens diarrhea.
