Rens Polman tells you the do’s and don’ts to reduce the risks of using poppers (Amyl Nitrite). A yellow, stinking and most of all, flammable liquid that brings you in a daze of 2 minutes.
Are you about to use Poppers? Keep the following things in mind:
- Don’t use poppers when you have low blood pressure, if you are prone to fainting or if you have heart problems.
- Make sure you can sit or lie down when using poppers. And don’t hold anything in your hands. A cigarette is especially dangerous, because poppers are highly flammable.
- Be careful when you inhale it. Avoid contact met your skin, nasal mucosa or eyes.
- Don’t combine it with other drugs and especially not with Viagra.
It’s hard to name a precise dose, because it is a volatile substance.
One good inhalation from the bottle or handkerchief will make you feel the effect already. It starts working after 10 seconds and lasts 1 or 2 minutes.
- Headache or dizziness
- Loss of consciousness, possible fainting
- Irritation of the skin (when the liquid comes in contact with skin)
- Poppers are highly flammable
- Brain damage
- (psychological) dependence.
