Does anyone know what the symptoms of the new bath salts drug overdoses are or how much the peaple were using that have overdosed
<Message from the moderator. This thread is locked due to the fact there are people joining and advising readers how to use bath salts. This can not be tolerated as using bath salts as a drug is illegal in most countries on this planet.>
this is not bath salts like epsom salts and what not that you would really bath in. these are sold as 'bath salts' in convienence stores, but they look like cocaine or meth. they are sold in small amounts for a lot of money and are a 'legal' alternative to an upper high. also, these same stores are selling a synthetic marijuana, but it is labeled as potporrie. (sp?)
anyway, on these products, it says 'not for human consumption' but this is bull shit. these products are clearLY being marketed as a legal high.
i have heard people being up for 4 to 5 days off of these 'bath salts'.
the funny thing is that as far as true physical damage, these products are far worse for you than their illegal counterparts that they are imitating. especially in the case of the synthetic marijuana, in which case the real thing is almost completely harmless and in some cases is being found to have positive effects.
cheers. and please, don't sniff any bath salts today....

This is a serious drug! Don't take it unless you've consulted with a physician.
Well - nothing is yet know about the long term effects of the drugs.
As for immediate side effects:
The ECMDDA reported that bath salt drug can cause various unintended side effects including: poor concentration, teeth grinding, problems focusing visually, poor short-term memory, hallucinations, delusions, erratic behaviour and dilated pupils.
They noted that the most severe effects appear anecdotally to be linked with high doses or prolonged usage and that the effects may be due to users taking other intoxicants at the same time. Other effects that users in internet forums have noted include changes in body temperature, increased heart rate, breathing difficulties, loss of appetite, increased sweating, discolouration of extremeties, anxiety, paranoia and depression.
When snorted it can also cause nose bleeds, and nose burns.
A survey conducted by the National Addiction Centre, UK found that 67% of mephedrone users experienced sweating, 51% suffered from headaches, 43% from heart palpitations, 27% from nausea and 15% from cold or blue fingers, indicative of vasoconstriction occurring.
Doctors at Guy's Hospital, London reported that of 15 patients they treated after taking mephedrone in 2009, 53% were agitated, 40% had increased heart rates, 20% had systolic hypertension and 20% had seizures; three required treatment with benzodiazepines, predominantly to control their agitation. They reported that none of their patients suffered from cold or blue peripheries, contrary to other reports. Nine out of the 15 of patients had a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) of 15 indicating that they were in a normal mental state, 4 had a GCS below 8, but these patients all reported using a central nervous system depressant, most commonly GHB, with mephedrone. The patients also reported polydrug use of a variety of compounds

Mephadrone or "bath salts" is relatively new and it is one of the latest "not yet illegalized" recreational drugs. It is sometimes called "Molly" cuz its effects are similar and NO it is not like epsom or other bath salts you have bought in the past and soaking in it will not get u high. You would not mistakenly buy this for real "bath salt" use because it is expensive and comes in small quantities. It has also been referred to as "plant food" and packaging always says "not for human consumption". If u arent interested in getting high off this, do not be concerned that u may mistakenly access it.....won't happen. If caught with large quantities, it will be confiscated but for the time being, authorities aren;t yet able to prosecute because it is not illegal. It is however dangerous and absolutely causes drug induced paranoid schizophrenia. It does cause you to be up for days and just the lack of sleep alone can make a person psychotic not to mention the physical damage to the body. You are definitely taking a risk fooling with this stuff but there are many out there doing it....it will be illegal soon and then the next new drug will appear.........

These "salts" are MDMA, or an analog of the chemicals that comprises MDMA. These do act as a vasoconstrictor, which can induce a "rush" or speeding sensation. Even small doses over a long period of use, will cause a period of nervousness and to some extent paranoia. Has been known to cause sweating, loss of appetite, slower thinking w/ short term memory loss.
It's effects seem to slowly terminate with decreasing use. MDMA has also been seen as a legal alternative for addicts who abuse crystal meth and are in substance withdrawal. Xanax is the standard advisable prolific for MDMA over-use and over-dosing. No clinical work performed on the over use of these "salts", only personal experience of users, not in trial, as of this date 4-11.
