Currently on two pills a day at 20mg each. I have this crazy idea about crushing one of the pills into 'dust' and snorting it thorugh the nose. Dangerous? No effect? Work just as well as in pill form with water? Any answers/advice appreciated.

No effect. People that snort anti depressents need a serious looking into. It has zero, no effect. Why the hell do you think they say it takes a while to start working, it takes a while to wear off. They are not instant. Why the hell anybody would even think of snorting it, besides the fact they think they want to look cool by shoving stuff up their nose is just beyond me. Its not a crazy idea, its a stupid moronic pointless idea.

Citalopram are an SSRI so take at least a few weeks to work. I can't imagine snorting them would do anything much.

Also the pills are coated in a film of some type which would make it a lot more difficult.

What effects are you hoping to achieve from them?

A high maybe? Anything to stop me cutting. OK so there are street drugs etc. I want to misuse medication which will bring benefit to me. My councellor reminded me it I could be using them for 3 - 6 months. I don't have that time. Sorry. I've asked my social worker to meet his health team to discuss using something stronger. I'm on the edge right now and just wanted to be sure of this. Any other questions?

Taking it properly is what makes it work.

Snorting it would give you a sore nose and possibly a nosebleed. Misusing ADs is not generally a good idea. I understand the timescale is hard. Really I do. My uni doctor here who I've met once told me I'll probably be on prozac for the next year and I nearly screamed. They may help if you take them properly?

I am taking them properly. Brief history. Back in October I started, there was an immediate lift from just one a day. I felt on top of the world. I cannot describe this in words. I felt amazing. My doctor said this was quick but my body will 'come down' but at a higher level than being depressed all the time. Suddenly, after 7 days it stopped. I hadn't self - harmed in this time and when I did I felt relief so stopped taking the citopram. Now up to 2 a day and yes it will take time. What? I want to feel like I did initally. Buzzing. The delays in my post are due to my Dad having yet another go at me for not working. He is a dictator. Anyway, now everyone says not to do this, I suppose the blade is still my hope. Hell, maybe I will crush all the remaining 30-40 pills I have left and swallow them, sniff them etc. I tried OD before on something else but it just made me ill for a while and hence all the medication and seeing people.

If this is genuine, you need to go back to the doctor who prescribed the Citalopram in the first place and discuss it.

just to save you the bother 30-40 citalopram wont kill you.
SSRI's wont kill you.
Also- 3-6months is a short time on ad's.

Crushing pills up and snorting them will do nothing but damage your nose.

If you want a high from sniffing get some speed or coke. Not advising just saying like.

I was actually thinking of sniffing insolvants instead as I have zero confidence to get any other drugs at all and I have no idea where to anyway.

How about heating up the citalopram?

No, won't work.

And take it from someone who's been there, done that, solvents are far more dangerous than 99% of street drugs.

Solvents have done nothing. Maybe I just can't use them properly. I hate who I am and how I feel. My uni councellor will have her work cut out on Monday to get me to speak.
