I was wondering if there are any side effects when you use poppers? My girlfriend says she wants to try some, but I was just wondering if there is anything to look out for? I read headaches can happen, anything worse than that?

Never had an issue with any side effect! Oh, if you over do it then you might get a bit of a dizzy spell and a spot of confusion as you land back on terra firma from the poppers. Some guys say the newer formulas burn a bit

Open a window and take a few deep breaths, side effect is zero. As Papa says some of the newer formula poppers that have shown up in recent times can cause burning sensation (that is cus they evaporate quicker, lower evap point than the traditional ones)

Is that true about the evaporation point, David?

David Bishop said on Tue, 23 Oct 2012 at 10:02...

To the best of my knowledge, yes. That is why you get that sharp burning thing going on, the older poppers are mellower. Of course they are different formulas, but that is the reason for the burning....I guess (I am no chemist)

Slightly dizzy once, sometimes feel a touch of anxiety....nothing much to report there. Some poppers last longer and are real dreamy, but the other sort are like a sudden blast (?) both suit different moods ;-)

I have been using and making poppers for 3 years. At first, I didn't notice side effects, but with increased use, I began to develop fatigue caused by short-term anemia following each session. Bronchial irritation and shortness of breath is present the day after each session and lasts for a few days. Red blood cells are negatively impacted by the nitrite and the lung tissue can experience irritation and inflammation from the pure nitrite or from any acid or nitrogen oxide impurities present. Occasional use will probably not give noticeable side effects. But beware, the new nitrites are being made from rubbing alcohol which hastens the side effects.

If you are involved in the manufacture of poppers then obviously you are going to have a totally different reaction to a normal guy, right? Also "each session" speaks volumes, you are likely over doing it!

Which popper is the strong one?

BadBoyBill said on Wed, 6 Feb 2013 at 20:08...

Never had any side effects, but like the poster above says "session" implies heavy duty use! If you eat or drink too much you'll also get a reaction. Moderation is the key, guys. I've also heard that over indulging can also make you loose that lovely warm poppers effect...not good.

Toxic Tina said on Wed, 27 Feb 2013 at 10:49...

You build up resistance if you use too often, that is a side effect for sure. As one guy said on another thread it is good to mix brands with poppers.

GYMKING said on Mon, 13 May 2013 at 10:19...

Can give me a cough and make me a bit dizzy...otherwise the side effects are not much actually. The new formulas seem to make a lot of folks unhappy, but I have never been sure which was which..they all have similar names anyway. You need a microscope to read the label!!

Bilbo said on Wed, 29 May 2013 at 20:56...

Nitrites like this lower the blood pressure and cause a head rush, so yes that is the effect. People depending on age and a huge number of other refactors will experience different effects. Poppers are not for everyone + anyone that goes crazy with them - a popper head - needs to be sectioned. Occasional use is not going to be any big deal, caffeine and nicotine also effect blood pressure. NEVER combine poppers with stuff (any stuff including "herbal" crap) that makes your pecker stiff. Common sense advice from a common guy....burp.

I have noticed heavy use can result in a small green haze when you look at anything. This soon fades away but nobody else has mentioned this. Made me wonder if it could damage eyes so I laid off.

uga said on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 at 08:51...

Yeah Buffer, it damages your eyes.

Scott said on Sun, 18 May 2014 at 11:55...

Don't do too much in one session! Especially if popper has HCl. I am a chemist and a user. I developed bronchial irritations and shortness of breath for 3 days. Thought I was dying. Also burned back of throat and tounge. Be careful and use sparingly and lightly !

GooeyGooner said on Tue, 26 Aug 2014 at 23:52...

I have allergies that can cause mild breathing issues. I found out the hard way (Quick care for shortness of breath) that poppers can REALLY irritate your bronchial tubes when you are reacting, even just a little, to allergies. Be careful.

Tuber said on Fri, 10 Oct 2014 at 17:34...

I've experienced unexplained anemia along with shortness of breath. I found this on another website.

Poppers can cause poisoning which can even occasionally be fatal if you get enough into the body. This can happen easily through accidental swallowing, but inhaling poppers in very large quantities can cause overdoses too. The reason is that the chemical converts the red haemoglobin in the blood into methemoglobin, turning the blood chocolate brown. Haemoglobin is needed to deliver oxygen round the body, so the result of severe ‘methemoglobinemia’ is oxygen starvation, potentially leading to organ failure, blindness, brain damage, or in the worse cases, death.
There is no advice available on the quantities likely to cause these serious problems. However, overdoses of alkyl nitrite are rare, suggesting that ordinary use should not put someone into the danger zone. If someone is continuously taking a lot of any alkyl nitrite and they experience shortness of breath, a lack of energy, tiredness and bluish colouring of the skin, they may be developing methemoglobinemia

Isopropyl Poppers - Poppers Maculopathy

I have tried to create a new post before without success, so I am posting here. Please also refer to another thread on here which covers this subject further down and provides some background: http://poppersguide.com/forum/10266

Well after an evening using isopropyl poppers (probably 12 inhales or so) I have damaged eyesight. I suspect almost everyone who inhales isopropyl based poppers will suffer vision issues but may not make the connection.

I had noticed a week after exposure that something was not quite right with my vision. One way to tell is to look at a large white surface like a wall and blink rapidly. If you see an altered visual spot in the centre of your vision you have damaged eyesight thanks to isopropyl poppers. Other symptoms are described in the above mentioned thread, and for me a heightened awareness / sensitivity of illuminated objects (traffic lights, light bulbs, car brake lights etc) immediately / hours / days after.

Well done to whoever decided to ban butyl & amyl which did not cause this damage and give the other nasty side effects that the legal isopropyl does! I remember the days of amyl & butyl, and neither caused these symptoms or damage. This is a VERY DANGEROUS situation we have here, and one which is not receiving anywhere near enough publicity. Please see the above mentioned thread to read stories from people who have been similarly affected, and google Poppers Maculopathy. Please also spread this information on FB / forums / anywhere you can to help save people from potentially and unknowingly damaging their eyesight.

Please remember poppers cause severe anxiety and panic attacks with depression after 24 hours and this can go on for weeks..........

A straight dude into poppers said on Thu, 24 Sep 2015 at 00:04...

Yes guys... Popepers can fuck your eyesight vision! I love poppers and did enjoyed it while watching porn to enhance my jerkinf session... And exactly like JDC said ABOVE : I had noticed that night when I did too damn much of it that my eyesight went wrong.. A little spot was inside my eyes and i couldn't read from far away anymore. Only from close range.. After a day or two of telling myself that it wasnt from Poppers I HAD TO ADMIT THAT I FUCKED UP my eyesight because of it... And guess what it took 2 months and a half too almost get back to normal. And one night i was drunk... And I bought a bottle of poppers again... And boom... My eyesight is back to where it was again... Which means fucked up with that little spot that doesn't go away.. Its a little white spot that you have in the middle of the eye when you look at something after you saw something flashy. Thanks to the two guys who mentioned that shit because after all these posts from ppl that said basically "never had anything" blablabla.... I really thought that I was the only in my case.

To JDC... Thanks for mentioning the name of the substance that cause this... I will write it down in case of one day I feel the envy to sniff some poppers again.. (im obviously addicted) but ill try to inhale one that wont fuck my eyesight permanently..
Peace

An Idiot Who Did Too Many Poppers said on Tue, 16 Feb 2016 at 23:24...

I was a regular popper user (every few days) for about a year. Last weekend I went on a particularly insane binge lasting hours, and now I've had anxiety and dizziness for the past week. More than a little scared that I've caused permanent damage. Kicking myself for ever using this stuff in the first place.

Straighttranny&faggotluvr said on Thu, 14 Apr 2016 at 00:30...

Only side effect I ever get is a rock hard cock and a desire to watch tranny and faggot hypno popper training vids while I shove a vibrating dildo up my asshole.

Can anyone attest to poppers giving you anxiety. I am dealing with the same issue and have severe anxiety. How long will it last??

obscure2015 said on Thu, 5 Jan 2017 at 10:43...

If you are having anxiety issues from the use of a vasodilater then I would imagine there are other factors in your life causing said anxiety that you are unaware of and hence are focusing on the only "apparent" thing you can notice about your daily routine. If you are that worryed about it talk to your doctor. But I would be extremely surprised that such a chemical which lasts mere seconds In the bloodstream could have such a deliterious effect on your long term mental health.

Charles said on Thu, 29 Jun 2017 at 15:43...

I have used poppers, mostly in moderation for years. I am noticing depression and anxiety two to three days later. It was pretty sever this time. I have been having issues in my life that would cause both of these symptoms without popper use, but this last incident really elevated everything. I would appreciate other comments on this.
