DOSE:
150 mg oral Methylmethaqualone
BODY WEIGHT: 290 lb
I've always wanted to try methaqualone. In Canada its only Schedule 3, so can still be RXed under the brand name, Sopor, but is often overlooked in the name of the allegedly less dangerous benzodiazepines. Finding actual methaqualone is impossible, but being at Schedule 3 in Canada, its analogues are freely available from chemical vendors. My curiosity has led me to try a few of them, in spite of the fact info on methaqualone analogues is scant at best since its parent compound is largely obsolete.

Still, I had to try these extremely dangerous drugs. I've tried--with great trepidation--Ephinazone, Mebroqualone, and the chemical in question Methyl-Methaqualone, an analogue that is anecdotally pretty close both in effect and dosage to the original parent compound, but with no safety profile at all on an analogue known for its seizure risk.

I started small when I got the package from my chosen vendor. A speck on the tongue for an allergic/mis-label test, then a 50mg capsule when all seemed a-go. There was some sedation, but far weaker than that of X-diazepines.

I next tried 100mgs and was feeling a bit of euphoria and sedation. There was no twitchiness or other signs of impending seizure, so I went for the same recreational dose as regular Methaqualone, 150mgs, with definite smiley feelings and some pleasant loss of coordination.

Thing is, it just wasn't that much fun. The same has been said of Quaaludes by old schoolers who've taken the real thing, they're glorified sleeping pills and their recreational value is minimal. Methyl-methaqualone is much the same, there's some novelty to it and its a different kind of Downer, but the lack of information regarding MMQ's safety margin make it not such a good time; its kinda hard to relax when you think you might flop around like a fish out of water at any moment. This never happened to me, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have and I hear the therapeutic dose of MMQ and the overdose level are pretty close. Really, all the risks that come with methaqualone analogues make them a shit choice for a downer. I didn't find this chemical more recreational than a benzo, and it's risky as hell. Downers aren't really recreational to begin with, they just bring me down when my fury is up, MMQ isn't any different. I think my quaalude analogue days are over...they all kinda suck.
