    the truth about kava. Kava causes numbness. it numbs your muscles and nothing more. You would have to drink gallons of the stuff to make you start loosing feeling. Kava does not cause hallucinations, or euphoria. So a heads up to all you recreational drug abusers: Don’t waste your money (its Farley cheap). It does cause a sense of relaxation, again do to numbness. like all things problems arise from excess consumption. In Tonga a kava circle is called a Faikava. At the Faikava people drink lots of kava and never get inebriated.

      Speak for yourself. While I agree it is not a great drug, CERTAINLY not as enjoyable or intoxicating as even rather weak marijuana (as is true for almost everything on this list), it can cause mild euphoria, relaxation, and music enhancement. Especially when combined with alcohol or marijuana. But, it’s not amazing. It can actually make you unpleasantly nauseous for a good 3rd to half of a day (depending on dose). Marijuana cures this, mostly. And no, it isnt a placebo. Look it up for yourself on erowid.com

    Diphenhydramine is absolutely awful. Took 24 Benadryl more than once in my younger days and it’s like a waking nightmare, I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy.

        Took the same dose, would definitely not call it a walking nightmare. But yeah it was not worth it at all, just got too tired and sick.

    the last comment regarding Kratom is not accurate. It was not banned because of abuse of the plant. it was banned cause it competed with opium. The Government didn’t want that.

    while nasal spray could be addictive..i’ve been a Vick’s nasal spray user for all of my adult life..i use it only when i get nasal congestion and only for sleeping at night..i’ve taken it as long as needed until my nose cleared up and then i stopped..i never had a problem with feeling like i needed it unless i had a sinus infection or something similar..i’m not doubting that it could be..but i’ve never had a problem using it as intended, even for longer than a few days as directed not to, and being able to stop with no problems at all.

    Dimenhydrinate is just a combination of diphenhydramine and 8-Chlorotheophylline, which is in the same chemical-family as caffeine. On that note, doxylamine is very similar to diphenhydramine as well, as they both share similar effects due to their similar structure (with doxylamine being the stronger of the two). Also, Oxymetazoline is not addictive, and is has stimulant-like properties, not hallucinogenic properties. Lastly, I don’t know why pseudoephedrine and levomethamphetamine (found in Vick’s Inhalers), as they are significantly easier to get than diethyl ether.

    why does almost everyone ive seen on any forum bash every drug no matter what it is? ive seen people bash oxygen!! sometimes in life some people need these things cause “they” think it will help. the only thing that sets aside a prescription drug from an over the counter drug is mostly a good feeling or high. hemp is 100% legal where ever i go, however marijuana isnt because of the buzz. if marijuana had never become illegal who knows what we would have for meds. or if wed even have pharma at all. thanks britain.

    Your information on Kratom is wrong. It is only addictive if you use it in large daily quantities for years at a time. And if you do become addicted, the effects for kicking it are mild and short. And it was NOT banned for abuse. It was banned because it caused a HUGE cut in the tax revenue from opium distribution. The Thailand board of Narcotics actually WANT it legal as they say it is not a problem, doesn’t cause abuse and adverse effects and was only made illegal for economic reasons. That’s the country’s own drug board saying that. Quit making stuff up, please.

    Look, I hate to nitpick, but I have medicinal marijuana for pain management and severe PTSD. When I briefly lived in a state that does not recognize my medicine as medicine, I was talked into buying very strong, very expensive Kratom. “Higher than marijuana”? You’ve got to be KIDDING ME; it does NOTHING for pain management, and it’s a STIMULANT! Come on, guys! Wikipedia isn’t THAT hard to use! D:

    *hinx* – needs to turn off his/her caps lock, then use a dictionary to learn how to spell, before commenting on any thread.

    Tramadol is totally safe and effective, in the correct dosage, if used for pain (I am prescribed 8 x 50mg, Tramadol a day along with 2 x 75mg, Pregabalin, for damaged nerves in my stomach and bowel).

    *hinx* is just being melodramatic. If medication does not agree with you – stop taking it, and ask your dentist/doctor for an alternative. Trust me, if you think you are going to die, you will KNOW about it – and it is not pleasant!

    Tramadol is only available on prescription in the UK – not over the counter.

    I got in a motorcycle wreck about 10 years ago. It almost crippled me. I was prescribed percoset for years to deal with the pain. I got hooked. I decided to quit taking it but couldn’t deal with the pain. Someone recommended Kratom to me as a substitute. It worked wonders. Its absolutely not addictive by any means and it isn’t that expensive. It is a stimulant but that depends on the strain that you buy. If you had researched it before you bought it, which any normal person should do, you would have realized it’s benefits. I only take it when necessary and when I don’t I don’t crave it. The reason many things are illegal is misinformation, which you happen to be spreading. Most governments spread misinformation and make things illegal because of lobbyist for pharmaceutical companies that make billions of dollars. If we used natural methods to cure our ills then they wouldn’t get paid. It is due to everyone’s ignorance that this goes on and you get charged outrageous medical bills. High blood pressure can be fixed with cinnamon and allergies can be relieved with local honey. Instead you go to your doctor which is also getting kickbacks from these drug companies. Next you make a list or bash a remedy you have never tried, remember that maurijauna was made illegal because it “Made white women want to sleep with black men”.

    For sure recently one American woman who stay in Japan as business was arrested because of received tramadol(?) from her parents in US.
    Smoking weed has been heavy crime in Japan since GHQ commanding it being banned.
    What a stupid country ever.
    Weed had been medication here at old era.
    If it is legal now,Suicide rate would be decrease exactly.

      Meds work differently for different people. It just has to do with your bodies chemistry. All meds have side effects, you just may or may not experience them.
      For those of you that are just looking for your next fix because you can’t get any weed, I’m so sorry that this is your life. Be blessed. Find peace and seek help.

    Kava causes fatal liver failure, Tramadol is now scheduled alongside Amphetamine and Heroin in many countries,,most of the others are poisonous in moderate quantities and few if any produce a recreational “high”
    Im surprised the author didnt include sniffing glue, given the dubious and dangerous nature of this list.

    Kratom is not addictive. It was banned in its native country because it is not addictive like heroin and it was affecting the sales of heroin because people were using kratom so they wouldn’t be addicted to opiates.

      Actually it’s addictive. I started using it after I broke my arm snowboarding last winter, and flushed my pain meds because I didn’t want to get addicted to those…. I also have really bad anxiety, and panic attacks and kratom helped me immensely with that as well… Withdrawals from it wasn’t bad, however I was addicted to the way it made me feel, and the headshop I bought it from was on my route home from school, and I kept telling myself eh, why not… Problem is it’s not covered under health insurance, and it’s expensive as shit, like 10 bucks a pill… Wtf…. So basically it’s the same as smoking cigarettes, but 10x more expensive, and less harmful??? Hmm who knows, it’s sold in a headshop, and gas stations…. Just like cigarettes… Sooooo….. Idk….

    The amount of sheer & reckless ignorance in this article is, frankly, alarming.
    First, and least importantly, not but maybe 3 of these drugs have any effect on DOPAMINE….no dopamine mechanism = No “high”.
    Second, you included Benadryl twice….why??
    Thirdly, if someone tried hard enough they could MAYBE get “high” on about 1/2 of these substances you listed; Ether, DXM, Tramadol, Benzedrex, & Kratom.
    The other 5 drugs you so recklessly included are much more likely to end someone up in the fucking hospital than a rehab, dipshit!
    Just because something is sold OTC doesn’t make it safe, in fact, many OTC drugs, if abused, are even more dangerous than many Rx & even Illegal Narcotics!!
    Even more ridiculously asinine is that you’d have the gall to compare ANY of these substances to Pot…LOL!
    I’m not for legalization because of how many stupid morons already exist on this planet….but saying that ANYTHING on this page will get you anywhere near as “high” as Marijuana is absolutely absurd.

    Lastly if you’re looking to get “high” OTC, either grow a pair & drink booze like normal people, find a nice drug-dealer, or take some time to reflect & Straighten out your priorities.
    The only people who should be taking drugs are people who actually NEED them to be productive citizens. Narcotics or not.

    P.S.: Afrin; My mom & Brother are both addicted to this, hopelessly….my brother kicked it when he joined the USMC, but i’m afraid Mom is stuck for the long haul. I ASSURE you, Afrin has absolutely ZERO action on the central nervous system, besides constricting blood vessels in the respritory & cardiovascular system.
    If you think that is a “high” you clearly are amazingly susceptible to the placebo effect, or maybe just had a mini-stroke!

    P.S.S: You got addicted to drugs & lost everything??
    BooHoooHoo!! Help yourselves people …Sorry I’m just so tired…every channel on T.V. people crying like babies because they don’t know when enough is enough.
    Get over yourselves people…drug addiction has literally been around for eons, nobody cares about your perceived “struggles”, so don’t blame dope & doctors, blame yourselves for being morons.
    Carry on!

    TO- Lazlo Morphine
    Given the fact your title is Lazlo Morphine says enough, add to that you googled enough to land on this post ..how ironic Lazlo morphine……

    First – you insult anyone who had the unfortune experience to become addicted and loose everything, kinda like if your doped up mother well..family lost everything …Boohoo comment applies to them as well and most likely you Lazlo Morphine…..

    Secondly -crying like babies not knowing when enough is enough?? It was because some accident be folded them and the doctors of this great states…insert sarcasm… Gave them the drug after don’t unfortunate injury or illness, it wasn’t until then for 80% that there body craved the drug….not them…if you read up…(books) you will see an addiction is not of ones desire, goal, it is your body wanting something so bad you loose your chemical balance, then you fear the systems of withdraw….its not a choice..

    Thirdly- ms Morphine…

    Blame on everyone else blame yourself comment….start at the top…

    Before you go saying a bunch of sh*t you know nothing about …. MS MORPHINE WHO FELL ON THIS SITE….
    go search some other sites to offend with your limited knowledge such as …..

    How to help my mother and family overcome addiction ….or how to apply my time to things that can make a difference instead of being bitter because your an addicted and have no pills…

    Find a purpose instead of being a I’ll informed, bitter, “lady” insert sarcasm…

    Best of luck to your family I certainly hope they have others to turn to or reach out to for help.

    God bless

    just a warning if you plan on taking Tramadol your body builds a resistance to it. I used to only need one or two to feel good but now it takes 7+ still works though.

    I know theyre not actually medicine, but a slightly reworked title couldve allowed them in. Nutmeg and morning glory seeds absolutely NEED to be on this list, particularly since the list is full of blown out of proportion nonesense saying you’ll get more high than on pot. Has the author actually DONE any of these “drugs”, let alone marijuana? If so, even worse, because then Its just (mostly) intentional, bold faced lies.

    I take Tramadol for my back pain and its pretty good painkiller. But I have never even gotten a slight buzz from it–maybe in a large dose i.e. 25 of the 50mg pills? one would get a buzz. I noted that someone had taken 24 tablets and “walking nightmare”. That has happened to me on even low dose–I took 500 mg of Tylenol and another drug back a few weeks ago (gabapeniten — back spasms) at 10p and I couldn’t go to sleep until about 5am..just made me a zombie…
    I used to take 7.5 mg of Vicoden in combo with 200mg of ibuprofen–I only got loopy about the first 3 times I took these (3 per day for back pain)….then nothing–just like taking a plain ibuprofen. But one side effect of Vicoden even in my small dose tabs was CONSTIPATION BIG TIME…it was awful. I now see on TV a product which will keep that from happening but I am not going back to Vicoden unless I have to — the Tramadol is fine.
