There has been a floating question if Snorting Vyvanse, which is termed as “railing”, can get someone high. It comes with the premise that since this is a stimulant, there is a possibility that it can cause the energy of a person to spike in order to perform more physical activities.
In this write-up, we will attempt answer this question by looking closely at the facts one by one like its basis and how it works:
This prescription psychostimulant drug is called lisdexamfetamine dimesylate. It offers stimulation to the central nervous system of a person. This prescription drug comes in a capsule or tablet form. In its capsule form, the shell can be pulled or cut in half in order to extract its powdered contents. On the other hand, the tablet can be powderized by grinding it. Therefore, in its powder form, it can be inhaled. Basically, this is the basis of this idea.
2. How It Takes Effect
Lisdexamfetamine is intended to be taken orally that is why it is only present in tablet and capsule form. This can either be directly taken by mouth or its powder can be mixed with liquid for people who have difficulty swallowing it whole. This product is actually a prodrug, which means that it lies in a stable state until it is mixed with another substance. In the case of lisdexamfetamine, this remains inert until the stomach juices of the body serve as a catalyst. This drug simply copies the way that the body ingests and processes vitamins.
Can railing or snorting Vyvanse get you high? Well, since its powdery substance can be extracted and its tablet can be crushed, it can actually be inhaled.
However, there is no way that you are getting high from it. If you take a look at how it takes effect, it only works by getting it in your digestive system. You start by orally taking it and letting your stomach process it. It actually needs the substances in your stomach in order to release it from its inert state.
It will then be introduced into the bloodstream wherein it will travel to your central nervous system. If you inhale it, it actually goes to the respiratory system wherein the needed catalysts are not present. Therefore, if it doesn’t change from its inert state, it will never take effect.
Railing will only irritate your nose or damage your lungs if taken in huge amounts. It can also cause bleeding in your nose if you force yourself to inhale it in huge amounts, which can lead to an infection. So it is highly recommended that you should not attempt to inhale this substance in any way.
