Warning: At the time I tried this shit, I did NOT know it was the infamous "flakka" from the (Florida) news. The drug that had people eating faces and shit. Oh no. It was just another random research chemical in the second wave that came after the good ones like mephedrone, methylone and MDPV were banned. The chemical name is a-PVP (alpha-pyrrolidinovalerophenone); say that 3 times fast. And honestly this was before it had a street name, so there. 😋
Anyway, I'd had an absolutely nightmarish response to MDPV so I don't know what possessed me to try another pyrovalerone. I'm generally a stimulant-friendly person who loves them all, but for some reason this class of stims does NOT agree with me. They make me breathless & paranoid at tiny doses and MDPV had made me so sick I ended up flushing it down the toilet or trashing it... I forget. First and only drug I ever just threw away. But a-PVP was basically a weaker, softer version of that. Stimulating for about 30 minutes with a side of shortness of breath, paranoia and the desire to take apart my keyboard or pick all the dirt particles out of it obsessively. Not my cup of tea.
|The media doing its thing :\|
I can definitely see how people who took a reckless dose or had underlying mental issues could end up in a state of "excited delirium" as the media called it. Unfortunately they've taken that name and run with it, applying it to people not under the influence of drugs but simply scared of police as they're getting the life choked out of them (see: Elijah McClain).
I would not recommend trying "flakka/a-PVP" unless you're all out of other options for stimulants & your life is so dead boring you want to be a guinea pig for no good reason. If you do, research the appropriate dose carefully and don't combine it with other uppers including caffeine. It honestly feels like a panic attack in powder form which is not cool. Take it orally; do not insufflate or inject. And don't eat faces.
