Better Pill Injection
In the Heroin Helper article Internet Pill Injection, five procedures were presented for getting pills into an injectable solution. Some people undoubtedly have managed to make them work. Most people, however, have found that they end up with a pile of thick gunk, which is still thick even after filtering through a cotton. Injecting such a "solution" can pose serious health risks.
An Easier, Safer Way
I agree with the original article: injecting pills is not the best of ideas. However, given that people are going to do this anyway, I am presenting a method that yields a solution that has fewer health risks. This process also has the advantage that it is quite simple.
- Scrape off the outside coating from the pill. This can be done with a knife or even your finger-nail. (note 1)
- Place the pill on a sheet of aluminum foil.
- Bake the pill on the foil in an over at 350 F for 4 - 8 hours.
- Remove the foil and let it cool.
- Transfer the pill to a mixing vessel such as a spoon. You will find that the pill crumbles easily, so be careful transferring it. (note 2)
- Combine a small amount of water with the pill. (note 3)
- Heat the solution. The binders will separate out.
- Draw the resulting solution through a cotton filter. It will have more or less the consistency of water.
- If you want, you can leave the coating on. This will make transferring the pill in step 5 easier.
- If you've left the coating on, try not to let it get in the water. Just roll the pill between your fingers and it'll split open and the contents will sprinkle out.
- I'd recommend using saline solution rather than water--tap water is pretty gross when you look at it. Saline solution is sold very cheaply for cleaning contact lenses. If you've ever been to the doctor and had an IV, you will have noticed that they use saline not only to clean the lines, but also as a medium for any other stuff that has to be diluted; regular water is really bad for blood; it destroys red blood cells on contact. Saline is the same weight as your tears and mixes freely with blood. This'll cut down on the soreness etc. if using injection sites repeatedly, and you'll lessen the chance of injecting something that you'd rather avoid.
