Snorting Wellbutrin, Seroqual, Paxil???

  1. 0 I was surprised to read in a correctional nursing thread that people are snorting seroquel, wellbutrin and paxil. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this happening. What are the benefits for the abuser? Negatives? I cannot fathom any and am wondering what is up with this stuff. Thanks.

    We see Ritalin snorters among teens in our area - they say they get a rush from it.

    Can't see a benefit to that at all....Druggies in jail will stick anything up their nose!

    People also snort Zoloft, Klonopin, and Oxycontin. Nothing new - In the 60s they use to crush-up several LSD tablets and snort that too.

    There is a higher risk of Hep C transmission from snorting due to the sharing of straws, etc. Frequent users can destroy their mucous membranes, sinus passages, and nose cartilage.
