Talk:Routes of administration
I don't know the name for this route (or if it's already been covered) but some years ago there was a trend in my area (Seattle) of cutting open a small flap of skin and sticking a pill into the wound before shutting it. Would someone want to research it and add it on? (I can totally do it as well)
Hey there, we don't want to advocate this ROA and can't find any formal literature on the topic. All I can find is a Drugs-forum post discussing it, but feel free to do research yourself and let me know if you find anything.
Thanks for the interesting comment. :)
Rewording the rectal administration summary
So both examples in the rectal admin section are problematic.
Methamphetamine HCl is NOT a caustic substance (I spend too much time at certain fora trying to explain to tweakers that it is not battery acid) and is perfectly fine for rectal use; in fact it's a great substitute for IV administration.
No reference is given for why phenibut would "burn" your rectum, chemically it's no different from phenylalanine really, and I haven't found any evidence of problems with that ROA.
If I wasn't so shy, I'd delete them myself, but it does leave a problem of substituting good examples.
- Methamphetamine HCl not being 'battery acid' is not fair evidence for a lack of causticity; however, if you have evidence in support of this claim then sharing it would be greatly appreciated. In regard to your phenibut statement, there is a difference between phenibut and phenylalanine 'chemically', they are different chemicals.--BronzeManul (talk) 11:17, 16 July 2017 (CEST)
