So this wasn't supposed to happen just yet, I went on a little vacation to visit my family and decided to take two weeks sober from drugs, completely, with the expectation of doing shrooms and Memantine (to reset my body). At this point in my life I no longer experimented with Opioids and Benzos, but I was interested in trying every drug once, assuming it was not an Opioid or Benzo. I searched the entire house and found a couple cool finds, I found Darvocet an old FDA banned Opioid with little recreational abuse, not worth doing, but worth collecting, I found various Triptons/Tryptamines a rare migraine med for my mother but absolutely no abuse potential, and lastly the golden find I found Fioricet a Barbiturate that contained Caffeine, Butalbital, and Acetaminophen. In the ratio of 325mg Acetaminophen, 50mg Butalbital, and 40mg Caffeine also 500mg Acetaminophen, 50mg Butalbital, and 40mg of Caffeine. I wanted to take these pills home and try this experiment there but after struggling to fall asleep because my body was detoxing from caffeine, nicotine, weed, and a bender withdrawal I decided to go on with the experiment.

0:00 I grabbed the 5 pills with the lowest amount of Acetaminophen and collected them, it was only 1625mg. I swallowed all 5 pills while talking to my friend, I was not nervous at all just a little pissed I had to use caffeine as I wanted to take a break from all stimulants.

0:07 Within the first few mins I became super happy, I knew the Caffeine had kicked in, and it's what I needed to make me feel better. I didn't expect much from this and didn't realize how hard I was about to be hit by the barbiturate. During this time I was researching the pharmacology of this substance.

0:15 Wow! I did not expect to be hit this hard. I suddenly felt super relaxed, no anxiety at all. Almost like an Ativan. It didn't make me extremely tired yet, but I got a super big rush of euphoria. My heart rate was dropping and it reached 55, which is completely normal.

0:20 I have pretty bad drug anxiety, I have overdosed twice, as well as had many many bad trips, and blacked out for multiple days at a time on benzos. Even though I felt the anxiolytic effects of the drug I still had some anxiety, I grabbed an Albuterol inhaler, a substance that would increase my heart rate ( I don't own this, just another find around the house), and I went downstairs to grab two tea bags. I hit the inhaler 6 times, but felt not much of an effect besides easier breathing and faster heart rate. Wow, I was feeling extremely sedated, happy and not a care in the world, but if my parents came to talk to me I would have no problem speaking to them. I grabbed three tea bags, some hot water and made tea. This caffeine gave me a little more energy.

0:30 Time starts to get a little messy but I got back upstairs and around this time I put some music on and Facetimed my friend and was extremely tired, as if I could fall asleep at any second. I said fuck it and grabbed one more pill, this one contained 500mg of acetaminophen, still an okay amount. I swallowed the pill and again hid them.

0:40 At this point the substance started to feel like nothing, I was having delusions of sobriety, even though clearly I was messed up. I tried to masturbate as I try on most substances and to my surprise was amazing. My libido was up for sure and when I finished it was pretty good feeling, not the stimulant jerking off feeling or the DPH jerking off feeling but was nicer then any downer. I would compare it to jerking off on a Gabapentinoid, particularly phenibut. During this time I kept drinking tea and hitting the inhaler. The next hour and 20 mins were extremely confusing and my short term memory was shot and nothing much happened. I drank around 250mg of caffeine in total, and had about 30 hits of albuterol.

1:50 Fuck it! (the last words of anyone before shit gets intense) lets take shrooms, will shrooms even work? I searched my favorite sites and couldn't find anything about mixing barbiturates and Psychedelics. I had put shrooms into capsules, .6g in each. These were enigma shrooms, more like a fungus and looked like a truffle. I was told these were stronger than albino penis envy shrooms (which they turned out to be). I swallowed 1 capsule, and within 5 mins swallowed another 3 which was a low dose for me. I've done 10+ grams quite a few times having 2 ego deaths on shrooms. My come up anxiety is usually extremely bad but this time I wasn't thinking and had no anxiety. The gelatin capsules take 10 mins to dissolve and I start feeling shrooms within 30 min on an empty stomach.

2:20 I messed up. I wasted shrooms for sure barbiturates act as a complete trip killer with no effects at all, literally nothing. Maybe I was ripped off and these were fake shrooms. I was also struggling to keep my eyes open tho.

2:30 Oooooooohh boy was I fucking wrong they hit me like a bus and I was in, but wait this doesn't feel like shrooms at all. I was seeing slight geometry but no flowing movements or any other visuals, I also couldn't feel my pulse and started freaking out. I was convinced my heart stopped beating. The visuals were as if I took 1 gram or even less of shrooms but holy shit the headspace was as if I ate 10g. The barbiturates potentiated the shrooms. The synergy was just insane. I tried to lay in my bed, closing my eyes, but the sensations flowing through my body were too much to handle something I've never felt before. It felt amazing and horrible and scary at the same time. The tactile hallucinations, and enhancements were insane.

I also turned all my lights off and couldn't tell if my eyes were open or not. I didn't see much, some patterns but not much. I went back and forth into consciousness, at least I thought, and the most vivid hallucination was me killing myself with a knife I found under my bed. I then grabbed the knife under my bed and put it on a high shelf so I wouldn't do so. I thought this was a hallucination as I never had a knife under my bed, but turns out I actually did. I also could feel how it would feel like to take any drug, in my imagination I hit a puff bar and I felt extremely doomed, I also drank a bunch of caffeine and felt super stimulated, I didn't try this with any other substances and interestingly these were the two I wanted to quit. I was able to look at my phone and saw it was already 3:43 on my timer and this was only getting stronger. I don't remember going to sleep, maybe I blacked out, but when I woke up I knew I had insane vivid dreams, but couldn't remember any of them, I also was convinced I texted at least 10 people including my parents what happened, after looking at my phone I clearly didn't.

11:53 I'm a little tired, not too bad but feel extremely good, no depression, clear minded and a bunch of motivation. Although downers are drugs I rarely do, I found this experience extremely beneficial. I feel rejuvenated, excited to start some homework and go on with my day.
