0.6 mg oral Pharms - Clonidine
  0.3 mg oral Pharms - Clonidine


This was a very dumb mistake on my part, as I should have looked these pills up on the internet before taking them to make sure of what they were. I received 15 pills from a guy telling me they were Klonopin. At first glance, they look somewhat like a klonopin, I figured it was an off brand of the same drug and took two of them.

The first effects were nice, sort of calming/relaxing/ felt like it would be a good day. My mood was generally good. I did notice that it didn't kill my anxiety much though, which was odd as klonopin usually kills it all. I took an extra one into work with me in case I got bored which was a bad idea.

About 30 minutes into my shift I took the 3rd one. And about 30 minutes after that I was a wreck. I was sitting on my bench fighting to keep my eyes open. Several times I awoke just in time to catch myself from falling off of the bench. My face and hands had a strange numb/tingling feeling. All I wanted to do was lay down and sleep. I remember thinking 'Hmm maybe this is happening because I haven't done klonopin in a while' still having no idea that they were not klonopin.

My work rate was dropped tremendously. I was doing around 50 parts per hour as opposed to the normal 200 parts per hour. My boss even asked me if I was okay since my rate was so low, I told him I didn't feel good. I ate food on my first break and hoped it got better, which it didn't.

About 4 hours into the shift, I couldn't take it anymore. I was nodding off every minute or so. I went down to the front gate and signed myself out and went home. As soon as I got home, I layed down and passed out for 6 hours.

My moral of the story is, check your pills online before you take them. Make sure what you think you're taking is really what you're taking. Their are some shady people out there that will lie to you to get your money. Never happened to me with this guy before, he always gave me what I asked for up until this point. You just never know.
