- Can I get high from snorting Ondansetron?
No, Ondanestron does not make you feel high, it is a drug that can stop you feeling sick and is often given to people who abuse substances.
Ondansetron is a drug that was developed in 1984 by GlaxoSmithKline in London. The drug is usually used to treat vomiting and nausea, particularly chemotherapy induced nausea. The drug will have little effect on the type of nausea that is brought on by motion sickness. It is also used by pregnant women to treat morning sickness although there are no clinical studies to suggest that it is either effective or safe to use during pregnancy.
Ondansetron has also been found to have positive effects when given to patients with schizophrenia, particularly when taken in conjunction with haloperidol. It has been used as an anti-psychotic drug, to treat obsessive compulsive disorders and also for psychosis that has developed as a result of Parkinson's disease.
Ondansetron is also given to people who suffer from substance abuse, particularly alcohol in the early stages of alcoholism. People with opioid addictions have also been given Ondansetron and it was found to be an effective treatment for withdrawal symptoms. It is also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome as it blocks the receptors and reduces colonic contractions.
It is never recommended that anyone should snort any drugs. Not only can it lead to infections in the sinuses which can be very painful but it is also extremely bad for you. There has been an increase in hepatitis C recently as people share straws or rolled up notes to snort substances. These devices get passed from person to person and greatly increase your risk of developing hepatitis C.
