I took 4 0.125mg Halcion tablets outside the pharmacy and started to drive home. The pills were taken on an empty stomach and around 10 minutes into the drive I started feeling a very different benzo feeling. It felt very euphoric. I am a very experienced daily benzo user (Alprazolam, Clonazepam, Diazepam, Nitrazepam, Oxazepam, Temazepam). This is my first time using Triazolam and have never felt a euphoric feeling this benzo produces. I was surprised, I didnít really expect to get much from what I thought would be a low benzo dose considering my tolerance level. The feeling is the usual carefree feeling but with a difference too, I can only think of the word euphoria to describe it.

Back at home I was still a lot composed enough to have a quick chat with dad before going online. Suddenly I decided some codeine would be nice. I took another Halcion and hit the road. This was about 35 Ė 40 minutes after original dose.

I was at an intersection and a car had itís indicator on to turn into the road I was on so I pulled out. Just as I did the car never turned up the road but kept coming, so in effect, I pulled out in front of it. I was absolutely enraged! I gave the finger screaming abuse, glared through the rear vision mirror screaming yet more abuse! I slammed the brake on in rage hoping the car would get a fright and almost crash! I was FUMING! The car had about 3 or 4 young guys about my age in it. They shyly pulled into a side street to get away. I was alone but must have acted bad coz in this neighborhood doing what I did would get your head kicked in. I must of scared them, heck I even scared myself! Iím always a very calm and mild person! When I got back to the pharmacy I was a very peasant, calm person, very anxiety free.

Summary

This drug is a very fun drug for a benzodiazepine. Itís also short lasting at around 2 hours. But be careful it can unleash a monster! Ė At least with me it did! - Because of this I would be cautious about using it in a social setting. It could land me in trouble. Iíve never been a violent abusive type but this Jekyll and Hyde pill sent me from euphoria to monster back to euphoria.
Be careful.
