I will start this report by saying that I have no experience with painkillers/opiods for recreational purposes. I occasionally take 5mg of Vicodin for menstrual cramps but only to alleviate the pain. I did a bit of searching to try to figure out what dosage of Butorphanol I should take. I have it because my cat just had surgery and was prescribed it by the vet, and there are some extras leftover. My other recreational drug experiences have all been with cannabis, LSD and ketamine.

I was instructed by the vet to give my cat 2.5 mg, and I read someone else's report about taking 15 mg and it being too much, so I ended up deciding to take 7.5 mg. In retrospect it was too much perhaps for my bodyweight and tolerance.

I swallowed a 5mg pill at approximately 6 pm. I put on a nature documentary on Netflix. By 6:55 pm I began to feel a slight disconnect- not quite dissociation but 'a haze between myself and what I [was] trying to say' (from my notes). I got up to walk and I felt both floaty and like my legs were heavy simultaneously.

I was feeling good so, at around 7:15 pm, insufflated another 2.5 mg. In about 3-4 minutes I began to feel very nervous (I have general anxiety disorder), but reasoned with myself that, had I taken too much, my heart probably would be slowing, not pounding like crazy.

I decided to lay down. I proceeded to “rest” for 45 minutes or so- during this resting period I would have strange and random scenarios created in my head that I felt engaged in, but then would open my eyes a little wider and would “wake up” and snap out of it and realize I had drifted off half asleep. It was weird but kind of pleasant and trippy.

This continued on and off during this 45 minute period, until my partner came home. I knew this would stress me out because I couldn’t tell him I had taken the cat’s medicine to get high, he would be upset with me. I tried my best to act normal but I felt very “out of it” as I told him. I tried to help him cook dinner but at one point the smell of the food got to me and I had to run and sit down in the bathroom. I didn’t get sick but I felt like I was going to. I was fine in a few minutes and was able to go back out and sit down and sip some water while he cooked.

I continued to feel sleepy and out of it until I ate dinner, after which I felt much more sober. I felt sobered up by bed time, at which time I smoked a bowl of weed (around 12 am). However I woke up at approximately 3 am to vomit once and then I was ok.

I am writing this the following afternoon. I don’t feel any further effects.
