Delayed Release Caffeine Pill

Is a delayed release caffeine pill, one with a coating to prevent it from being digested for 8+ hours, feasible? Would the pill be too far along in the digestive tract to have an effect at that point? How could I make one?

Article search - again

I'm looking for an article I read online within the past two years about a group of friends in their late 20s/early 30s who spend the weekend smoking/snorting some drug at a friend's house. I mostly remember the bizarre activities they got involved in and an impromptu trip to Las Vegas in the middle of the weekend. [more inside]

The logistics of placebos

Are there U.S. laws or professional guidelines regarding physicians prescribing placebos to patients, or is there really nothing stopping a doctor from misleading a patient about the efficacy of a drug? Furthermore, is it technically possible that popular medications many of us know by name could themselves be nothing more than placebo pills? [more inside]

Should I drop Zyrtec?

Allergy Filter: are all antihistamines basically the same? I used to take Zyrtec / cetirizine, but it's more expensive and less commonly available than other allergy medicines. Is there any reason (e.g. side effects) why I shouldn't just switch to which ever one is the cheapest? [more inside]

what will they think of next?

I know someone who enjoys sniffing isopropyl alcohol straight from the bottle, not huffing but sniffing like perfume. They say they love the smell, that they don't get a high but it's like smelling a favorite perfume. Is this bad for them? I've never heard of this, have any of you? I'm interested in any information anyone may have on this.

Where can i find an efficacy comparison of old drugs vs new drugs?

The fact that drugs aren't marketed as being x% more effective than another drug makes me more than suspicious. Where can I find comparison information of old vs new drugs? new vs generics? I'll give you an example. I have allergy problems. Doctors try to tell me about the latest xyz antihistamine. These doctors are paid by the drug companies to sell me this stuff, and can't seem to give me any apples to apples comparisons. Is allegra more affective than diphenhydramine? Is x more affective than y? Were the best drugs already found, and the newer drugs crappier, or is it the other way around, or neither? Why isn't this openly published and available? What the hell happened to the scientific method?

The woman who re-discovered MDMA

Alexander "Sasha" Shulgin is primarily credited with the popularization of MDMA, also known as Ecstacy. But he was actually introduced to it by a woman named Merrie Kleinman, who was reportedly a graduate student in the medicinal chemistry group Shulgin advised at San Francisco State University. Whatever happened to Merrie (Meredith?) Kleinman? The Interwebs have little information about her.

How do these dealers not get busted?

Several times while out in busy nightlife areas in New York, I've passed random dudes on the street who offer to sell me (and every other passer-by) a whole smorgasbord of drugs, totally unprompted. I've never been remotely tempted to buy, but I'm curious how this works from a legal standpoint. How do these guys not get busted? [more inside]

I want to stop coughing, damnit!

A few years back I was diagnosed with pneumonia after being sick on and off for about three weeks. When I was finally diagnosed I seem to recall that they gave me antibiotics and a codeine based cough syrup. This combo worked like a wonder. The codeine knocked out my cough and let me sleep, and the antibiotics killed the pneumonia. At least that's how I remember it. [more inside]

"He took too much LSD in the '60s".

"He took too much LSD in the '60s". No, really. Any number of Americans approaching old age are doing so with long-term illegal drug habits. If you've seen the Osbournes on TV, Ozzy seems the picture of the sort of cognitive impairment you can expect someone to have after years of illegal drug use. Is this typical of such a person? Can someone be rendered mentally incompetent by means of a history of long-term illegal drug use? Would someone with obvious cognative impairment like Ozzy still be considered legally competant?
