[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]
I am writing this trip report in order to raise awareness and prevent others from taking heroic doses of RC's.

Mindset: Quite depressed, going through withdrawal from benzo abuse.
Psychical state: Quite good.

Trip Duration: 9pm- 7am (10 hours)
Trip Aftermath: ~72 hours. Tracers, headaches, dizziness, losing psychical balance and experiencing general motor incoordination, ataxia, delayed reflexes, suppressed appetite and libido, twitching, insomnia, worsened emotional state, psychosis, 4kg of weight lost.

Into the trip:

250 mg of bk-2C-B, ROA- Orally ingested, through 2 capsules.
The time in the trip is estimated.

T+1:30: Uneasiness felt, questioning if it's just placebo.

T+2:00: Trip starts with visible tracers and other visual distortions along with increasingly deranging feelings of nausea and mental discomfort.

T+2:30 Throwing up twice. The intensity of visuals is already similar to that of a trip on 500ug of acid.

T+3:00 Heart palpitations and thoughts of worry can no longer be ignored.
T+3:00 Heart palpitations and thoughts of worry can no longer be ignored.

T+3:30 Throwing up again.

Sweating up very badly, delayed thought flow and paranoia, inability to walk properly, intense visual hallucinations resembling mostly hundreds of eyes and other patterns including satanic symbols replacing my visual field along with thoughts about death.

T+4:00 5 mg of lorazepam taken in order to SURVIVE.
At this time I'm barely able to move and laid still in the bath tub waiting to die, not being able to speak, scream or use my phone in order to call the ambulance.

T+4:30 Severe twitching, muscle stiffness, vasoconstriction, fever, tachycardia. Not feeling the benzos yet, waiting to die any moment, unable to stand up or move my arms nor legs. Barely maintaining myself conscious.

T+5:00 Benzos start hitting, hallucinations are slightly less intense and I start being able to move, realized I haven't died yet, took another 4 mg of lorazepam.

T+6:00 Still in the bath tub, realized I was steps away from death. Finally being able to stand up on my feet.
Got out of the bath tub and went into my bedroom, still hallucinating and twitching.

T+6:30 Trying to sleep, took 30 mg of zolpidem.

T+7:00 Can't fall asleep, spending my time hallucinating and imagining myself being a monk for the rest of my life and promising to myself that I won't ever take drugs again for the sake of living and not going through this hell again.

T+10:00 (7am) Hallucinations are finally less intense.

Conclusion: Taking high doses of acid is not the same as taking high doses of RC's. Think 10 times before deciding to take a high dose of any RC.

Thank you for reading and stay safe. I am thankful for still being alive.
