Tranquility Concentrated Bath Salts in purple container

10:00 Took 10 mg loratadine for allergy symptoms. Has me wondering if dry nasal passages will be a problem.

3:00 Took one 500mg erythromycin on empty stomach. Might enhance any stomach upset problem, but I need for non-infection reason.

3:07 10mg insufflated left nostril. No burn, slight sensation.

3:15 Very little nasal drip, maybe a little speedy feeling. Preparing something to eat.

3:22 Very little effect yet. Eating a chicken breast because stomach was empty and had low blood sugar. Don't want to be too up on an empty stomach.

3:30 Patiently waiting. Maybe slightly elevated senses. not enough to discount placebo effect.

3:35 Tempted to redose another 10 mg. Would like to see how it goes over next couple hours. I could lay down and sleep right now.

3:40 Feel something but it's very unpronounced. Going to eat some more.

3:45 10 mg insufflated right nostril - redose. Let's make it happen. Going to pharma to get Ocean saline spray to try to ensure absorption

3:56 Insufflated saline solution up each nostril. Starting to feel something but it's not what I'd call euphoric. More like half a Ritalin.

4:19 Definitely feeling a little amphetamine type feeling. Unpronounced. Feel like I could get work done at this dose. Still think I could lay down and sleep.

4:25 Based on other reports should definitely be feeling something by now. Bad batch? My mg scales aren't the greatest but it should be fairly close. Is my body chemistry so different I require 30 mg for that big first feeling.

4:35 Smoked 10 mg trying to get that big pop. Poor smoking method: put powder on top of some 'Spice' ash and put a lighter to it. Next time I'll try putting it on foil.

4:45 There it is. Not euphoric but slightly pronounced amphetamine feel. Will definitely not redose any more as I have an event at 7:00 where I need to be composed.

4:55 Slight teeth clenching. Pleasant feeling upper. This is disappointing based on other reported experiences and their doses. I'm thinking a good 30 mg to start to try to get the first big rush. Not interested in a lot of redosing and chasing. Going to iron some shirts, even though I want to keep updating this log.

5:10 Already peak and coming down. I'm guessing, based on early reports, that this will last for an hour or so. This use has been a let down, but I'm going to try again in 2 days.
