Has anyone else experienced this before?

It's always hurting me to take deep breaths, the morning after I do poppers. I thought it was just that I had overdone it one time, but I gave it a good two months without any poppers to heal, tried again last night, and I can't breathe properly today.

I've experimented with 3 different brands, and they all do this. It started when I bought the three. the first two bottles I ever did (before I bought these three) didn't seem to have this effect. I need to try the first two again, but I thought i would post here to see if anyone knows about why this happens. Are some people more sensitive to a certain kind of popper (active ingredient)?

Hi

When you say "the morning after I do poppers" do you mean that it is a major event? I was wondering if perhaps you might be a bit excessive. No offence please that's up to you but in my opinion, given that in the historic form they should really only be used once at a time, I wonder if this poppers effect might be down to that. Really if you have such a reaction you should ask yourself are poppers that important?

BellyInflator said on Thu, 25 Jul 2013 at 09:34...

Thanks for the response.

Yeah, when i do poppers, i generally do them at night. I wake up in the morning with difficulty taking deep breaths, and it lasts all day. usually back to 100% the day after that or the third day.

I usually only use 1 popper bottle (not the whole bottle, I mean to say one kind) per night. Idk if this is excessive: About 4-5 deep sniffs with nostril against the rim of the bottle. I might do that 2 or maybe 3 times in one night, separated 10-15 min apart. What do you think? Too excessive? One night, for testing, I only took 3 sniffs the whole night, and had the problem the following morning, but it was very very mild.

Are poppers important? I'd give them up if I can't figure out this problem, but they are a lot of fun.

I'm just wondering if maybe these three new bottles I got use a different active ingredient, and my body doesn't like it. Probably gonna order some more of the stuff i bought the first time.

Let's see here... first two bottles I had were Rush (Isobutyl), and Taiwan Blue (Isobutyl). Had no problems with those.
The other 3 give me problems: Jungle Juice Black Label Extreme Formula (Alykl), Classic English NPR (Isobutyl), and Volt Electric Blue Formula (says mix of Isobutyl and other nitrites)

Damn, I was hoping the 3 bad ones had different ingredients from the first two i tried without a problem... but no. Still thinking about ordering Rush again right about now..

PJ said on Fri, 26 Jul 2013 at 20:36...

IMHO 1 bottle is excessive, yes. You may of course you may even have an underlying health problem and they are exacerbating it. I have no idea, sorry. I can tell you though I once had an iron deficiency and that caused exactly the same thing you mention.

To be honest I was never a fan of isobutyl nitrite. It is the aroma of 1980s clubs....I remember the rooms being pungent with it. I have never heard of Classic English NPR (what does NPR mean?) or Volt Electric. When you say mix...does it say it contains cycohexyl?

BellyInflator said on Sat, 27 Jul 2013 at 06:30...

Sorry, no... I don't do a whole bottle in a night, lol. I do only one type of popper per night.

Iron deficiency, huh.. Hmmm. Seems most of the stuff I've got is isobutyl nitrite. Which do you like best then?

NPR = Nail Polish Remover. Volt doesn't say what other nitrites it has in it, but what's the problem with cycohexyl?

Guyz4fun said on Sat, 27 Jul 2013 at 16:26...

what's the problem with cycohexyl?

newbie nasty...like isopropyl nitrite. old skool like harding street Quicksilver + Bolt now that is pops!!

PJ said on Sun, 28 Jul 2013 at 15:21...

Nail Polish ah! They are all IBN IMHO (abbreviations are cool) All of the stuff is isobutyl...alkyl nitrite is just a word that covers the class of nitrites. Trust me iron deficiency is a real pig of a condition....breathless, very tired etc.

As for you Mr Popperhead ;-)...Harding St is a ref to the old PWD of years gone by? Is it true that one of the Rush USA offshoots is a mix of isob & cycohex now? Someone here was saying so and was not overly pleased. It always seems to me that there are formulas some people like and some people hate. There aint no standard, i.e thats good, that's bad...except if the bottle is off, or just badly made. Some people say that Chinese poppers are wonderful and some say they are a lot of...well...you know :-)

Marshall said on Sun, 28 Jul 2013 at 18:47...

Wow! an ordinary conversation...

BellyInflator said on Sun, 28 Jul 2013 at 23:03...

Haha, ordinary? Is that sarcastic, or are most conversations on this forum weird or not ordinary?

Anyway, I did poppers last night and can breath. It was the English NPR. I sniffed really lightly from about 2 inches away. Maybe I have been overdoing it. Do you guys put nostril against the rim of the bottle?

Marshall said on Tue, 30 Jul 2013 at 20:03...

Everything in moderation :-) Yep I meant weird...there are some personal fights which spill over here and get real weird

There will be side effects it stands to reason, right? I can see Pac West is reaching legendary status, nostalgia??

Wheezer said on Wed, 4 Sep 2013 at 08:17...

Please stop abusing your lungs.

From personal experience, I have reduced breathing capacity after using poppers due to my lungs and air passages swelling as they do during an asthma attack.

The worst time, after visiting an adult book store and sniffing a lot of Rush, I had to rush to a local CVS pharmacy and plead for an asthma inhaler. Luckily I had a prescription on file, otherwise I would of ended up in the emergency room.

...enjoy. Or better yet, don't.

Punkah Wallah said on Sat, 7 Sep 2013 at 15:57...

Thanks. Just goes to show if you have asthma, or any other serious illness, it is not a good idea to start using "a lot of Rush" in a "book store" Who would have known! The other day I went walking on a cliff edge after drinking two bottles of bourbon. It amazes me that there are no warnings put up in public spaces like "Don't go walking here if you are shitfaced" or "If you go into the backroom and bomb yourself up with recreational inhalants you might not feel so good afterwards"

Solomon said on Mon, 9 Sep 2013 at 17:55...

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Wheezer was only sharing his concerns in a polite manner. Now you just crawl back under whichever rock you came from, thanks.

zhabit said on Mon, 14 Oct 2013 at 20:10...

I'm a regular user of popper's. and when i say this, i mean been using a couple of bottles every other month. about 5-6 years ago, me and a former partner would be clapping our hands with excitement after we obtained a bottle, and have one of our most amazing sexual connections with each other and have no problems at all afterwords. But nower days, after sniffing popper's, i too have trouble breathing for a couple of days. I put it down to them changing the ingredient to 'isopropyl'. It hardens any mucase in my lungs, and for the next 2 days i'm coughing up a lung. This also leave's a not too pleasant aroma within my synesis (My spelling is atrocious). I'v just thrown my latest purchase away because i cant put up with it any longer. Does anyone know how to obtain the old skool ingredient, like Amyl?

zhabit said on Mon, 14 Oct 2013 at 20:19...

secondly, Which nitrite were they using about 5-6 years ago?

Miss Mint Julep said on Fri, 18 Oct 2013 at 20:36...

Where do you hail from, zhabit?

NoButReally said on Mon, 21 Oct 2013 at 17:03...

I'm having the same problem as the OP. For a few months (when I started) poppers caused me no problem, but now even with light use (3 light hits in a night) the next day or two are hell.

I suspect that this is an additive, and not the chemical itself. Has anyone found a brand that is good, or a way to purify the liquid?

Popper Expert said on Sun, 9 Feb 2014 at 20:16...

I have been making and using poppers for over 3 years....and I have developed the delayed breathing difficulties as well. I am a medical lab tech and as such, have periodically tested my blood since I starting using poppers. My red blood count has dropped significantly, from 4.5 to 3. Normal is 4.5 to 6.5. A low count causes anemia, fatigue and shortness of breath. Nitrites act as free radicals and damage RBCs. The spleen can cause further damage to RBCs when it tries to recycle the damages ones. Other popper ingredients, such as acid and nitrogen dioxide, can cause respiratory tissue inflammation and distress. So when you combine all the side effects, you will be feeling quite tired and breathless after a session, usually the following day. Minimize duration and frequency.

Monique said on Mon, 10 Feb 2014 at 18:21...

Thank you all for the information. I am new as a Popper Girl and absolutely love the effects. I gave myself a serious asthma attack and have been struggling for 4 weeks to get my lungs back to normal. Damn it!

Junglejuicer said on Wed, 19 Mar 2014 at 23:43...

Hey everybody, yea this sucks. I've used poppers with my ex in the past with no problems but after having night were I've used it excessively I had serious issues breathing the next day and felt like I was going to pass out. This has happened on one other occasion before.

I loved poppers but after I did some light research I didn't think there were any major side effects. I've learned 1st hand that there are and now I'm hesitant to use them lightly since ultimately they're doing no good. It's like having one cigarette a month, it's still not good for you when you do it, and the short euphoria of the poppers is not worth it in my book. I also have this productive cough afterwords for the next two days where I can taste what the poppers smell like, which is telling me it's getting trapped in the mucus somewhere.... no good.

Thanks everybody for posting, I'm glad that I've been able to confirm my suspicions.

Disher said on Fri, 21 Mar 2014 at 01:48...

I'm having pains in my chest and coughing a lot even after 2 weeks of not using it. It started a couple of hours after using it. Wheezing at first then finding it very difficult to breathe. Thought it would have cleared up by now. I read on the NHS website that inhaling toxins etc can cause emphysema. Obviously everyone's body's are different. Gonna have to go to the docs if it doesn't clear up. Becarefull with it people. :-)

Pops said on Wed, 7 May 2014 at 16:48...

I agree poppers are causing more damage than good. I have experienced bad wheezing and breathing problems which lasted a few days following use. The thrill which only lasts a minute or two is not worth all the discomfort and agony you have to face afterwards and talking about sleepless nights. Difficult to breathe as it is let alone when lying down in bed. I'm done with it since the consequences are bad enough.

Popperfan said on Tue, 13 May 2014 at 18:04...

I used poppers frequently between 1991 - 1996 and never had any problems (apart from when I was taking them laid down and spilled half the bottle up my nose - I kid you not, was disgusting and gave me lockjaw for a few mins whilst my ear popped). I would consider myself a heavy user getting through a bottle a weekend no probs maybe 20-30-40 nose to (bottle) rim both nostrils a night.

A few years ago they changed the formula and were much weaker which meant I was having much harder more frequent blasts. Eventually I started getting really wheezy and chesty caughs and loads of mucus for next few days. I also smoke a lot and am not the strongest physical chap in the world and eventually I naturally lost interest in them and quit. Chest killing me. Ended up pouring all my Ottawa away to avoid temptation and never went back.

Last week got myself a bottle and was all excited with my partner. Had a few blasts and they were really good. I mean WOW!!! Reminded me of the old days but without any headaches. The next night I had maybe 20 heavy blasts. The following morning my chest was in agony. Coughing, wheezing, short of breath, ticklish caugh, mucus. My sleep was constantly interrupted for a couple of nights, coughing every few minutes. I held off of them for a couple of days but felt a little better and the next night had three small blasts and boom, back again.

It's definitely something in the poppers that I don't think used to be there. As I say I did them frequently (almost every night and long weekends) for many years with the only effect being a headache (same as you would get if you had too much booze) but now I literally can't touch them without my chest feeling like it's collapsing on me the following day. The problem for me is I love them. I will defo check the iron deficiency aspect , thanks for that info! It's typical though.. They change the formula to protect us from ourselves and end up making them worse.

Swim said on Sun, 1 Jun 2014 at 16:46...

I think ur spot on popperfan that they fucked up the formula..... Used to sniff poppers before 2010 which I think is when they banned the isobutyl and others in the US, and never had a single problem. Stopped using for a year or two, and it was only recently when I tried it again that I've started having respiratory problems with the new ones.

paininmychest said on Mon, 2 Jun 2014 at 13:45...

Just coming in here to chip in that I recently ordered some Amsterdam Special poppers and started to experience some chest pains this morning.

I made my order a few months ago and used it without any issues. Some nights even inhaling more than usual. I normally don't jerk off with poppers but have been doing so more often for the past few weeks, but I have never experienced this chest pain.

That is, until I started to put my poppers in the freezer. I noticed that the Amsterdam was losing it potency and I read up that putting it in the freezer would make it last longer.

last night was the first time I took my poppers out of the freezer. Waited for it to reach room temperature before I went to town and then noticed the tightening chest pains and shortness of breath this morning.

Has anyone who experienced chest pains froze their poppers?

Something's going on said on Thu, 19 Jun 2014 at 21:19...

I've tried 10 different types of poppers, I've experienced the same breathing issue as mentioned above. I take Mucinex for two days after to break up the mucus.

The formula is definitely different and it SUCKS! Anyone know of alternatives. All are bad! PWD companies are the worst.

This never happend with old formulas.

chest hurty said on Mon, 7 Jul 2014 at 20:11...

Im glad I found this site, I used to use poppers in the clubs end, late 80's to end of th 90's, always good ,cheap ,instant high... But not nowadays!... Had a blast the other night, felt good at the time, untill I looked in the mirror, I looked dead, blue lips nails, and face!!!... Felt fine though... Untill the next morning... Can't breathe out, withought almost coughing a lung up, constant wheezing, and fuck me, sod even trying to ride a bike, withought coughing so much, I fell off my bike, in a coughing pile, I actually thought I was going to die ant one point.... What the fuck have they put in it, what was wrong with the old one?.... Anything that does this, is a serious concern..... Think its time to forget poppers now, its got to be a health risk..... Never before have I been so ill....was it with it?....it would of been ok ,had it been the old type.....

chest hurty said on Mon, 7 Jul 2014 at 20:16...

People should be made aware, that this is not the proper poppers, just some new chemical that is making people very ill!.... P.s. Tried again to make sure... Not worth it, cant breathe out again, with blue lips and nails!...

chest hurty said on Tue, 8 Jul 2014 at 23:13...

Went to see GP.... 2 days after session, bronchitis, and severe lung infection.... Fuck this isopropyl crap......

midsy said on Sun, 13 Jul 2014 at 10:05...

Very interesting read.

I only discovered poppers about twelve months ago and have had some amazing masterbation sessions edgig using poppers. Some of the orgasms i have had have been earth shattering.

Some poppers agreed with me and some not but Quicksilver was incredible. I could sniff this for hours and not have any problems. The last month or so my supplier has stopped supplying Quicksilver so i ordered a bottle from a German company.
First thing i noticed was that the label was a darker blue, hmmm i thought maybe fakes and the other difference was that the top had PWD inscribed on it. Then when i opened the bottle it hissed for a second which had never happened before. When i sniffed it it made my eyes water and i could feel the inside of my nostril burning. I had a couple more goes before i gave up and the next morning i had a tickly cough that lasted nearly a week.

What's the deal with poppers today? I may try another brand but caution is the word.

KWT said on Thu, 24 Jul 2014 at 17:02...

So the summary of this thread seems to be that something in poppers has changed that causes more breathing problems than they used to. But some people using some poppers don't have a problem. I wondering if it is clear that it is specific base ingredient that is common (isopropyl) or just some brands. (bad mixtures) Europe banned IBN as a carcinogenic, but they did not mean to promote a substitute. It is irrational to restrict common substances in society so that more harm is occurring than less, but until we all get big brother to pursue a rational policy toward all recreational substances we will have to figure out how to protect ourselves

marcus said on Fri, 22 Aug 2014 at 00:26...

In America they had to change the formula a decade back and I have the same lung reaction with this new concoction. If you buy them from overseas (UK/Netherlands) they are the original formula (or close enough) and I have no problems.

Bearilyyours said on Tue, 26 Aug 2014 at 20:04...

"Old" poppers were amyl nitrate. They'd been prescribed for many years as an emergency vasodilator - in the form of a small glass bullet in a tight fabric sheath that one snapped with their fingers in order to release the vapors - not unlike the "smelling salts" of old.

In the early days of the AIDS epidemic (early 80's) they were (mistakenly) thought to cause the 'gay cancer' - (Kaposi's sarcoma) associated with AIDS. They were found in some research to be carcinogenic and were made illegal in the U.S.

This is when isobutyl products were developed and marketed as room deodorizers, liquid incense, etc. to get around the new law which made selling poppers as an inhalant illegal.

I am not a chemist or scientist but I suspect that all forms of poppers are highly toxic to lung tissue. I have developed COPD (Emphysema) - I was a heavy smoker for many years and also smoked a lot of pot. I used poppers with my sex partners heavily throughout the 80's and early 90's. I'm versatile but always used poppers when bottoming.

One string I noticed through many of the posts is the simple aspect of cumulative use - everyone seemed fine at first, regardless of the poppers' ingredients...but all have reported breathing difficulties after some point of time. This is why I think that they harm lung tissue off the bat, you can tolerate it at first (like smoking), even though damage is being done. Also like smoking's cumulative effects, once you experience the symptoms the damage has already been done.

Plumage said on Thu, 4 Sep 2014 at 01:16...

I stopped using poppers because I had difficulty breathing the next day which usually lasted about 3 days. Along with this was a lot of congestion and coughing up phlegm.

Kimberley said on Thu, 2 Oct 2014 at 10:51...

I think that this new version of poppers is really dangerous. The old stuff (amyl) wasn't as bad the day after( you can still get this it is retailed as leather cleaner from Amsterdam). Today is three days after me and my boyfriend brought two bottles of 'KING' poppers. We did go a bit hard on it, I am still coughing and finding breathing difficult. Noticed someone said Blue fingernails and lips in comments-glad im not the only one. I think after reading and contributing to this post im still gonna do poppers. Just now a hell of a lot less and a hell of a lot les
s often. Please be careful xxxx

Tuber said on Fri, 10 Oct 2014 at 18:13...

Like to post several coincidences that I think are the result of poppers. I've used poppers for 20 years, but started heavier about a year ago (large bottle every 3 weeks). Started experiencing shortness of breath, getting "winded" doing normal things like cutting the grass, dancing.

Go in for my yearly physical and have my blood drawn. Later notice the dried blood on the gauze is black, not the usual red.

Call from doctor that I am verging in anemia.

Google search "poppers and shortness of breath" and find this site in addition to another and see this disturbing information.

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

Damn!! Exactly my symptoms. I'm laying off poppers now.

Dave said on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 at 15:29...

My fist partner has suffered all of the effects that everyone is mentioning and we recently ditched the pops in favour of mixing clove oil in the lube.
It was fantastic at first and we were o re the moon to have found a natural alternative. However, he seems to have developed some sort of resistance to the effect of the clove oil and we are now searching for any other natural products.
Can anyone recommend a natural substitute please??

Mike said on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 at 06:09...

Wow... Thought I was going crazy. Thanks for talking about this. Won't admit to how long I have been using poppers, but the last year or two has definitely been difficult. Always have a persistent cough. Dark circles too. Wondering if anyone has found any websites that give access to amyl or any of the old popper formulas?

J.T. said on Tue, 11 Nov 2014 at 00:10...

Yeah, I'm here because I wanted to see if it was just me. I was a heavy user for years and now I can't touch them due to the after effects, not being able to breathe is no fun. I'm sure there is something in the bottles that never used to be as I never had issues until the last few months or so. No more poppers for me.

Mike said on Tue, 11 Nov 2014 at 05:03...

I used to call the guy who sold me poppers at a local shop here in NYC ... My Popperologist... The place recently closed... I'm sure there are experts out there who can guide us to better products. There has to be a website that sells the real stuff. For years we were able to get decent poppers and now they are all just crap. Anyone got some info?

popperbob said on Sat, 15 Nov 2014 at 21:00...

I agree with all the above I started using poppers for the first time a year ago they were fantastic and my boyfriend and i had great sex and climax ... however since April I have had chest infections and every time I chance using them again I can't breathe properly for a day or two . my bf has no ill affects .... I had a break for a botu and month but last week in a moment of sexual pleasure I tried them and boy the next day headaches and chest problems please please please someone please give us all an alternative

Mike said on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 at 06:24...

I am trying a trusted source as we speak... English online... Dick in hand and hope I can report a good source ... Cheers... lol

popperbob said on Sun, 16 Nov 2014 at 10:20...

Do you get breathing problems after using them?

heard the Jungle Juice or Real Amsterdam? have also heard that poppers containingAmyl Nitrate and better

I'm not going to use what I have in stock for fear of not been able to breathe the next day. which was the case on thursday after my man and i made love

No luck... The English was strong when first opened, but lost potency fast.

Ruprect said on Tue, 18 Nov 2014 at 04:30...

After reading all the posts it seems that there may be something in the theory that the ingredients have changed or that prolonged use causes harm to the respiratory system. Has anyone had respiratory problems then found an alternative that doesn't? If so please tell us what it is! Also, are there any alternatives to poppers that give the same effect - lube and clove oil worth a try but what lube? Mrs R and I used to love poppers (at first) but now we cough so bad that it's not worth it.

iLOVEmeSOME said on Sat, 29 Nov 2014 at 14:31...

i am a heavy poppers user and after 12 years i am devastated that i should stop now due to breathing problems. I have had some TERRIBLE nights after using it so short of breath that anybody would have thought i was suffocating. I KNOW that it is a combination of smoking heavily and poppers which has done this to my lungs, i cant believe i was so foolish to think that poppers weren't dangerous!
I will still use it for pulling because i can and because i feel like i need it for pulling to be fun, but no more taking it when drinking and smoking.
Its scary, i know they are going to f*ck me up but i think im still going to use them for sex fantasies! :-( :-)

Popsornotto said on Fri, 19 Dec 2014 at 22:08...

I have had many problems with poppers. I used to live using them. Now I have to be so careful as my lungs have suffered. If anyone knows of a good alternative share the knowledge

Steve P said on Sat, 20 Dec 2014 at 15:55...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and poppers are a big NO NO. If you have COPD what's left of the air sacks in your lungs are further damaged by nitrates.
Love poppers, love sex on poppers, but now I've gotta stop.

Nyc athlete said on Wed, 31 Dec 2014 at 10:33...

I have the same thing only I also cough up tons of mucous!! I RARELY use poppers but when I do the following day my chest feels restricted, I wheeze and I cough up tons of mucous!! It's awful!! I've spoken to my doc about it (specializes in gay men's health) and he never heard of anyone with my reaction. This is all brands across the board as well. No respiratory issues and a very fit guy. They are fun but I HATE them.

katiegloscd said on Fri, 2 Jan 2015 at 21:20...

Am a tranny and used to use poppers not a lot but started to buy the pack of three and progresssively found breathing got worst after using. not instantly but usually use before i go to bed and terriible problems breathing and more recently lots of coughing and thick mucus from lungs...fro about a week after ..Normally pretty healthly and started about 1-2 years ago - I think it must be a must be a change of formula usually use reds pack of 3 or rush..

JJMelbs said on Wed, 7 Jan 2015 at 09:23...

Have to say, had a few weeks of taking Jungle and a few others and chronically out of breath as well. Stopped to help clear it up (had a cold as well so bit confusing to pin point the root cause). Its a pity as its sooo much fun and made me very randy but its not worth it.

SammiNaqqi said on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 at 01:52...

I hate my ex-boyfriend. Who gave me poppers for the first time ever two and a half years ago and ruined my life for ever. I can't even live without it and can't even breathe after taking it. I face breathing attacks every night when I take poppers. None of the brands suit me. I feel like killing myself for taking them. I wish I could breathe the same way I used to breathe two and a half years ago. Please ban poppers and please ban petophylism. I beg. So that boys of my age can atleast breathe properly.

TryBiGuy said on Sun, 11 Jan 2015 at 14:17...

I recently started casually using poppers; I'm still on my first bottle of rush. No headaches or breathing problems, just the wonderful warm euphoria of desperately wanting cock for a few moments.
I've tried to read what I can online to hopefully make informed decisions, and while forums like this are very helpful there seems to be little or no scientific research available.
Is anyone aware of any research? How about facts regarding the products themselves? It's annoying to look over the selection available and see absolutely nothing listed as ingredients. I'd love to see some ingredient info if anyone has it. (But of course there's the problem of fakes out there.)
Can I suggest that when discussing any problems you've had that you include specific brand info? At least we can watch for trends that way.

kingping said on Sat, 24 Jan 2015 at 07:32...

have the same problem, thanks for info!

Chrony Bronky said on Sat, 14 Feb 2015 at 21:17...

I recently tried this stuff from USPOPSHOP where they disintegrate the pill into the entire liquid making it cloudy. Usually the pill is a solid pill and is put in the bottle to maintain its freshness. Inhaling the liquid also had me inhaling the particles into my lungs and it cause me to have short breaths. I didn't realize it at first, but it also cause me to get chronic bronchitis. :-(

Poprsick said on Sun, 15 Feb 2015 at 00:59...

I am 58 started using poppers around 1977 when I was about 20 practically every night for a year or so during a big cocaine period really enjoyed it with coke and booze. Quit coke and booze in 1980. But still did poppers over the years on a weekly bi weekly basis. Often would be just tired a few days after. In my late 40s I noticed that I would sometimes catch colds or flu more easily if I used them to more heavily. heavy would be 10-15 big long hits over half hour period.
Now within the last year or so I tried a new method where I put poppers in a plastic squeezable bottle with a paper towel to soak it up. I really liked not spilling the stuff or burning my nose trying to get close to a good hit. Now I have a constant cough and whenever I use poppers heavily 20 hits within 1/2hr I catch cold and get thrush or candida. ( it's a bacterial type yeast infection in the mouth.)
I am convinced from lots of trial and error over the years that the newer stuff is really bad for you. Especially as you get older. When I was in my 20s I could bounce back from anything. Anyhow I am totally convinced that the new rush out there will really screw your lungs up if over used. As much as I like rush/poppers I hardly ever use it any more. To enjoy sex I just learned to go real slow be and gentle and relax. Basically that's what poppers did. With practice and self discipline you can enjoy sex without that shit messing up your lungs. I am also a former smoker so that may have had some effect also.
I wish I knew where to get the old formula. Think about it, if you spill that new stuff on your skin it can cause burns, so basically your putting something that burns your skin into your delicate tender lungs.

I accidentally got it in my eyes and possibly in my mouth. I woke up this morning with server stomach cramps and nausea and feel so shit should I be worried

These new enlarged bottles of Rush and Man-scent which is even more expensive is really not worth-it!! Once the bottle is opened, it doesnt last for long. We through away more than half a bottle at a time. We only use it like 3-4 times a month, but after every session I seem to breath difficult, now I have also developed chronic bronchitis. Why are we in SA not getting the old makes of Rush made by PPP? Why was this banned in SA? What else can we use that has the same effects?

For a very short buzz the after effects are just not worth it.Ive also suffered from wheezy chest constant cough and loads of brown mucus that has gone on for a week or so after sniffing GOLD.No more for me.

Lee said on Fri, 27 Mar 2015 at 00:07...

I have concluded from self experimentation that the new formula Isopropyl Nitrate poppers cause delayed serious breathing difficulties, (for me, about 4-6 hours after use) and I have had to go to hospital twice when I could hardly breathe. These also caused me retinal problems and I was subject to investigation from Moorfields eye hospital. Ceasing use reversed these symptoms after months. The older Isobutyl Nitrate formula never gave me any problems. The Isohexyl's are much better, if you know where to get them. I would never use Isopropyl formulas again.

Samehere said on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 at 18:00...

Relieved to know I'm not the only one that's having this problem.

Like many of the other posters here, I used poppers for years and never had an issue but with the changes in formula that came about in recent years I have the following problems next day after either a) moderate usage for more than 2 consecutive nights b) heavy usage in one night

- blurred vision
- deep mucous cough

Both symptoms will generally take 3 days to a week to go away.

However, I do not get these symptoms if I use moderately, and never on consecutive nights.

Look after your health, guys.

I'm in my mid 40's and have been using poppers since sarly 20's. I still enjoy them, but I gies with older age more worries arise.y main concern is has anyone out there Haard of anyone getting lung cancer from using poppers???

love.thee.rush said on Sun, 12 Apr 2015 at 03:04...

True poppers may have a bad side effect,but then again, what drug doesn't have a side affect. They all do, so if we wish to continue doing it, then we just need to learn to deal with the side effects. Just like alcohols give you a hangover. Poppers also have their bad side.
They have come a long way, and many ingredients have changed. Mostly in order to keep it legal in the shops in which they are sold. No drug is worth doing, for nothing good comes of it. In the end we just have learn to enjoy the rush it gives and the pleasure it provides us with, and understand and be willing to accept that there is a bad side to it as well. Just like alcohol give hangovers, cigarettes cancer, poppers too have a bad side.

poppers can be very dangerous in the long term said on Mon, 27 Apr 2015 at 11:11...

Like many others, I have used poppers recreationaly to heighten the senses during sex. I also smoke cigarettes and suffer with asthma. The asthma diagnosis was arrived at around 3 years ago. It is widely believed that the poppers, as well as the smoking, probably together with a predisposition to this disease are all contributing factors. I Have tried poppers 3 times now since my asthma diagnosis, which is stupid I know, I don't require a lecture. However, each use has resulted in a chest infection, twice requiring hospital admission for treatment with IV steroids and antibiotics. On the last occasion I was treated at home with amoxicillin and prednisolone as well as my inhalers. I suppose some people are more prone to problems than others, and many millions will use poppers with no resulting respiratory distress. I will never use them again. But I will always remember how good they felt. Although with that in mind, I am a 40 year old man and they have at the very least contributed to a lifelong respiratory illness.

Zeca said on Fri, 8 May 2015 at 13:02...

Depois de mais de 5 anos a cheirar Poppers estou tendo muita dificuldade em respirar e tenho de usar óculos para ler ao perto porque o Poppers danifica a retina... Mas parece que esses danos podem reverter (pelo menos em parte) se deixarmos de usar poppers. Mas é tão dificil faze-lo e basta usar 1 única vez mesmo depois de não o fazermos durante meses para que tudo volte ao inicio. E infelizmente ainda não consegui ficar longe do Poppers durante o tempo suficiente para poder reverter alguns danos. Porque depois que a gente se acostuma com Poppers nunca mais consegue evitar usar porque é muito, muito melhor e sem poppers é muito frustrante! Mas quando penso no tempo em que não usava Poppers e nas minhas melhores fodas eu concluo que era muito melhor antes de começar a usar. Só que o Poppers cria habituação e perdemos a sensibilidade (sobretudo a anal) e passamos a acreditar que uma foda só pode ser realmente boa com Poppers! Mas valerá a pena pagar tão caro por isso ? Eu acho que não porque os efeitos colaterais não duram só uns minutos (como uma boa foda) e vão-nos destruindo para sempre!

I'm having the same problem as everyone else. I've been using super rush lately and have noticed respiratory problems ever since. Right now it's 330 in the morning and I can't sleep because I'm coughing my lungs up. This has happened twice in a week. Granted, I'm also a smoker, and I do tend to use poppers and smoke, but I've NEVER had a problem like this until I used the super rush. My advice? Stay away from this "new formula." I seriously think it may be deadly. I've poured my supply down the toilet!

benadryl said on Sun, 31 May 2015 at 16:05...

I have the same coughing problems after use. Hard to breath, and really had to sit up at night to try get some sleep. So I started looking for something to open up my breathing passages. I started taking benadryl (diphenhydramine) directly after using poppers. It greatly eases the bad effects, and allows you to sleep. I usually pop 2 pills after or during using poppers and in the morning after. Benadryl will make you drowsy though. If I'm using poppers heavily, I will pop a benadryl every 3-4 hours. It does counteract the breathing difficulties, but watch out - it will make you to sleep.

I had been taking poppers for about 2 years but off and on never had any side affects but in the last 6 month I have had trouble breathing and a pain in my chest so i have put this down to the new poppers ingredient
Can someone tell me is there some sort medicine that can ease the affects from the poppers

canadaguy said on Thu, 25 Jun 2015 at 11:07...

hey everyone. i've been ordering poppers from all over and they all seem to be giving me the same congestion + breathing problems, especially at night.

maybe it would be a good idea to share WHERE we are getting them? i'm getting mine from amsterdam-poppers and they all seem to be giving me the same issue regardless of what brand i use.

Regretful said on Sat, 27 Jun 2015 at 23:27...

I never did poppers until a couple weeks ago. Bought a bottle of Jungle Juice. Used it pretty steadily for about a week, several times a day, with anywhere from 15 min. to several hours in between sniffs (one or two in each nostril).

4 nights ago, an hour or two afterwards, as I was going to bed, realized I was havning great difficulty breathing. Just like no air getting into my lungs no matter how hard I tried. It was terrifying and I almost called 911. Took a Xanax to calm down, finally fell asleep, but I've been going through it ever since. 4 days now. I do think it has gotten better, but very scary. I feel is I had to really exert myself, I'd be in serious, serious trouble. Went to my GP yesterday, he knows little about this. He prescribed a Ventolin inhaler. Not sure it's helping, or if I'm just slowly recovering anyway.

I'll NEVER do poppers again, under any circumstances.

My question for anyone: Is this nightmare going to end? I read where people have this for a day or two, or three, but it's gone by then. I'm into day 4 and it's still totally screwed me up. Does it get better on it's own???! Has anyone heard of this being permanent? If you go to the hospital, is there an antidote/treatment? I'm very worried and scared, could use any helpful information or advice. (I'm thinking of picking up some iron pills, I just read about that in a post ^^^^). Hope to hear from someone asap, thanks.

DelNaga said on Sun, 28 Jun 2015 at 20:49...

I had the same experience. For quite a while I was a big fan of poppers. Until one night, it all changed. I took a few big whiffs of poppers, and later that morning, at about 01h30 the morning, I woke up, feeling like I had a ton of bricks on my chest, coughing and coughing like mad, spitting up phlegm by the mouths full, then my breathing was okay for a bit, until the phlegm built up and my breathing got heavy. At first I went to my GP, he prescribed antibiotics thinking I had bronchitis. A week later I felt better, tried the poppers again, and wham! Same result! Couldnt sleep, coughed up phlegm, and next day back to the docter. He said the bronchitis was back. A week later, I felt better again. And that night, same story. So the next day I reckoned maybe I should stay away from the poppers for a while. I did for six months, and all was fine, although every now and then my chest would get tight, but not like it was with the poppers.

So one night I tried it again, and eveything was fine. It was about a week, using every night, and about after 10 days, it was back, worse than ever before. I made an emergency appointment with a pulmonologist, and the tests came back, I had asthma. 24 years of living healthy, no chronic diseases, and now I had asthma?! I swallowed my pride and told him about the poppers, and he said I was not the first with this problem. The amyl nitrite had a tendency to irritate the walls of your lungs, and with continued irriration, could lead to a type of asthma where the lungs produce phlegm to stop the intake of harmful chemicals.

So in a nutshell, go have yourself tested to make sure you havent developed any respiratory issues.

Regretful said on Sun, 28 Jun 2015 at 21:17...

Thank you for writing. I did the stuff for a week, about 2/3 of the bottle. That's all. I'm hoping I haven't done enough to cause the condition you describe. I'm not coughing up phlegm, it's the constricted breathing that is the problem. I think it's getting better on it's own, but I'm worried about permanent damage. I'm getting chest x-ray tomorrow, not sure if that would reveal any type of asthma. Maybe I need to see a pulmonologist.

I've been a longtime marijuana smoker, that hasn't been doing my lungs any good to start with. (don't smoke cigs) The marijuana suppresses migraine headaches for me, but now I wonder if I'll be able to use that again if I have lung issues.

Really hoping 2/3 bottle over a week isn't going to result in long-term problems. I'll certainly never use the stuff ever again, that breathing problem is terrifying.

I'll check in here again for any more info and to post an update on my situation. Thank you.

Regretful said on Sun, 28 Jun 2015 at 21:20...

Anyone know the ingredient in USA-sold Jungle Juice? Much confusion on this. I don't think it's amyl, but rather is butyl or one of the others. The bottle had a grey label. Any help? Thank you.

Regretful said on Fri, 3 Jul 2015 at 22:43...

I wish some more people who've had breathing problems (dyspnea) would write in. I'm 11 days after using it (I believe it was isopropyl nitrite), and STILL having breathing problems. Screwed up my whole life so far. Went to the ER four days ago, one week into the problem. They said my chest x-ray looked normal, all blood was normal (and no clot), and the EKG was normal. ER doc said she thought I'd return to normal. But I haven't. It's gotten a bit better, and certainly better than the days immediately following ( see above ^^^), but I'm not over it. Most people here seem to have gotten over the breathing problem within a few days.

Anybody else here have longer recovery experiences? Please write and tell you story, if you can. I don't seem to have mucus, phlegm, no coughing, etc. Just the problem taking a deep breath, and chronic shortness of breath. Getting better, but not nearly as quickly as most seem to recover.

Would truly appreciate more input, thanks so much.

dboykinky said on Sat, 11 Jul 2015 at 15:37...

I'm glad I found this forum. I only recently discovered poppers. Last week I used them for two extended masturbation sessions within a twelve hour period. And - when I say I used them - I inhaled them continuously to give myself a strong high - and some unbelievable orgasms!
Unfortunately - the next morning - I woke up with asthma like symptoms. I am familiar with them - because I have asthma - although have not had an episode in a about a year.
It's been a week - and I have had to use my inhalers regularly. Seems to be lessening - but still a problem 8 days later.
Hoping to feel better within the week.
Not using poppers again. Too bad - because the experience is awesome.

regretful said on Sun, 12 Jul 2015 at 00:48...

Thanks for posting. I'm 3 weeks into this, and still can't breathe right. Youre breathing problems went away? For sure? Which brand were you using? I was using Jungle Juice, which I think was isopropyl nitrite. I THINK mine is getting better, but it's VERY slow. And very scary, and causes tremendous anxiety. I went to a pulmonologist a couple days ago...he couldn't find anything wrong with me, did some elaborate breathing tests, checked out my ER xrays, blood work, EKG, everything, and couldn't find a problem. Seems to think it will go away. But reading this forum the past few weeks, it seems it goes away much faster for most people. Wondering how long this can go on. Pulmonologist said I might have some scarring in the airway, but it should heal.
Any of this sound familiar?
Dboykinky, please keep me posted on your recovery, I'll be very interested to know how it goes.

I'll NEVER do them again, or anything like it.

Never again said on Wed, 15 Jul 2015 at 20:10...

I have used poppers for a few years now but not excessive use. At most a couple of times a month and always chuck the bottle away after a few sniffs. The past few months I have had horrific side effects. Starting off with really bad coughing, chest pains, runny nose, constant sneezing, vomiting, headaches. It takes me about 1 week to fully recover and even at that I sometimes still have a lingering cough.

Basically the poppers attacked my whole immune system and in some cases I got severe bloating and many trips to the toilet. Don't even get me started on the sleepless nights and all night wheezing and bringing up loads of mucus.

Even if I so much as think about putting my head on a pillow, yes the coughs start. Even if I try to eat something, Yes I vomit it right back up.
One I vomit most of the severe symptoms die down and feel better but no I will not be taking them again and hope they ban the fu#king things.

One last thing...I promise you everything I have posted is true and when posting this it was more than 24 hours after taking poppers and I feel like death warmed up and can hardly move. It's like having the flu.

Never again said on Wed, 15 Jul 2015 at 20:15...

I should add the brands I have used are Rush and Liquid gold. I also found if I hadn't eaten anything hours before taking poppers and hours after taking them then the side effects are not as bad but trust me, no matter what the brand is it pack my whole immune system in and basically wrecks your life for a few days.

Sorry for not jumping back into the conversation sooner.
I am feeling better now. ON Sunday, I went to the urgent care and got a breathing treatment and a steroid injection - along with an RX for 5 days of steroids. Breathing is better. Went from asthma like conditions to more of a bronchial cold - with congestion and phlegm.
I used Super Rush the first time - but it was Jungle Juice that did me in. Still - I'm done - not using any brands anymore.

KEEPING ON - WITH CAUTION said on Sat, 12 Sep 2015 at 19:36...

I'm 59 and have used poppers for about 2 years. Every two months I might go through a week of using them to masturbate with or realtime play with a partner. I would have a next day headache and usually get an increase in chest congestion and cough for a couple days until it cleared. And then things would be fine again. As of this date, no breathing issues noted.

I normally order online from Poppers-R-Us, usually PWD product. Small bottles. Brands I've used, and my personal, purely objective take on them, are:

- Rush (smooth, effect fades quickly, potency would drop substantially after 3 or 4 days from being opened, headache the next day, chest congestion which cleared in a couple of days)

- Super Rush (no real discernible difference than regular Rush for me, but a higher pricepoint)

- Amsterdam (smooth, on the same level as Rush for me, light headache the next day, chest congestion which cleared in a couple of days, slight nausea when used, potency drop after about 4 days)

- Jungle Juice Black Label (more intense than Rush, a bit more chemical aroma, not as sweet smelling, potency dropped after 3-4 days, headache the next day)

- QuickSilver (intense, very strong, potency dropped after 3-4 days, headache the next day, nausea when used, chest congestion which cleared in a couple of days)

- English Royale (intense, sweet smelling, potency was longer--maybe a week or so with on/off use, slight burning sensation when inhaled deeply, nausea when used, chest congestion which cleared in a couple of days)

- Locker Room (was my favorite because it didn't smell as sweet, but had a burning sensation when inhaled, headache the next day)

- Hardware (very intense, knocked me on my ass with several deep inhales, burning sensation when inhaled, sweet chemical smell, nausea when used, chest congestion which cleared in a couple of days)

Net from all this:
I love poppers and the sensation of randiness it provides, if ever so fleetingly. Definitely puts me in the mood for being in a man's arms. I prefer poppers having a less-sweet smell as I associate the more sweet-smelling ones with increased sense of nausea during the effect. That nausea obviously tempers the romance for a several seconds off and on. The key seems to be inhaling just the right amount to get you randy, but not enough to cross over into nausea. Unfortunately, the line is very narrow and I wind up on the other side more often than not.

I know from the burning chemical sensation of certain poppers that they cannot be doing my lungs any good. Likely the same effect is happening with the smoother ones as well, just not as noticeably.

The CHANGE in formulas has from what I gather, made something potentially bad to worse. Will I still use poppers? Yes. But now rarely...maybe three times a year. Special occasion sex, if you will. The risks, for me, are too great to use more regularly unless something changes in the chemical male-up or natural alternatives are realized.

runnergirl said on Sat, 12 Sep 2015 at 23:42...

I have used liquid gold several times with my partner and sniffed from the bottle quite a few times. The effects at the time are amazing but i am also always left with the most awful tight wheezy chest, hacking cough and cannot breathe properly. It is taking weeks for me to get better. I am definitely not going to use poppers again.

hey there said on Mon, 21 Sep 2015 at 00:15...

Just a general note, I find that the only way I will use them is to pour the bottle into an empty jar (jam, salsa, whatever) screw the jar lid on and then remove to sniff... the distance to the nose makes all the diff, great inhalation I think they evaporate faster ha but worth avoiding nose burns, also I think headaches are bypassed, have some phlegm but incidental... hope that helps

Jungle juice platinum said on Thu, 1 Oct 2015 at 20:21...

I used poppers for the first time one week ago and had a great experience with no side effects afterward. I think they were some kind of jungle juice. My man said they were older and the potency was weaker.

I bought a bottle of jungle juice platinum 2 days ago and had a solo session with them. I inhaled proabaly 15 times. It burned a lot more then my previous experience. The last two days my chest has been extremely tight and I've had troubles breathing. I love the effects. I don't think I will be using them again unless this clears up quickly.

Grandpa said on Sun, 18 Oct 2015 at 05:12...

Good posts!

As the name says, I am a grandpa, 68 and have used poppers on and off for 20 years. My use was quite intermittant, maybe a bottle every 3 or 4 months, meaning I would use it for 3 weeks, then not for 3 or 4 months. I started using it more frequently over the past 3 years to where I sniffed two or three times per day, every day. About a month ago, I noticed breathing problems and coughing. I stopped for a month and it cleared up. I started again a week ago and all hell broke loose! I cough almost constantly, I have difficulty in breathing and am short of breath even walking up the stairs. One of my mentors, Dr. Al Sears, says, the longevity of your life is dependant upon your ability to breath. I believe that. This stuff is deadly! Stop it! A short high is not worth it.

Hope to be reading this blog for the next 20 years or more. God bless you all.

DelNaga said on Mon, 19 Oct 2015 at 23:07...

Hi Regretful,

My apologies for only replying a few months later after my initial post.

To be honest with you, if I could share my deepest wishes with anyone so they do not walk into the same trap as I did, I would say, stay away from poppers. The poppers has quite literally f***ed up my lungs. I am now on chronic asthma medication, including Ventolin (for use during the day when my chest gets tight), duolin (which tastes like a donkeys arse and makes me quite nauseous) and alvesco (which has so far given me the most painful oral thrush I have ever experienced).

I have stayed away from the poppers, but it has been hard. Look, we are all adults (or semi adults) so let me be honest...sex and masturbation just isn't the same without it. Orgasms are mediocre...but my question is why are they mediocre? Because I have forgotten what its like to enjoy an orgasm without poppers. And thats why I am recommending you stay away from it, before you start yearning for it, whether it be when pleasing yourself or a partner or jumping around on a dancefloor.

Getting back to my lungs. Right, my asthma is under control, however as I am lying in my bed typing this I have a constant crackling sound emanating from my lungs when I breathe. Now this crackling noise, as far as I could research is called the death rattle...not too comforting. I have kicked cigarettes for vaping, and I cannot stand the propylene glycol the add to the vaping juice as it causes even worse havoc.

So my jogging in the mornings and gymming in the evenings have come to a halt, as I cannot handle the pain in my chest when I am physical, and sex has even taken a bigger tumble, because I cannot even bring my gf to climax before I keel over and have a coughing fit.

What started out as symptoms that happened after huffing poppers are now a regular stumbling block in my life. Whether it was the poppers thats caused it, I dont know, but one thing is for sure, it played a helluva role in destroying my lungs the way they are now.

So, I'm not telling you what to do, but just be smarter than me, and heed the warnings your body is showing you. The human body is very clever, if it doesn't like something, it'll tell you. If only my brain was smart enough to listen to my body...

Dave said on Tue, 20 Oct 2015 at 07:42...

I have had the same breathing problems, remember having them briefly WAY back in the 1980's, and after some VERY intermittent use.
Honestly, I think it's from doing too much at a given sitting. It can cause some pretty severe acute bronchitis, which in my case took, without medical treatment, took about a month to resolve. The stuff is an irritant and can irritate lung tissue, precipitating bronchitis or asthma . In my experience the secret to avoiding these unpleasentries is to use an inhaler to administer the fumes, and watch how much you do at a sitting. It took two large bottles of BluBoy, taken about a week apart, to precipitate that most uncomfortable bout of bronchitis.Don't hit it so hard and/or so often, and you can keep the discomfort to a minimum. And remember, some will be MUCH more succeptable to bad affects than others, especially those with pre-existing respiratory conditions...

I have tried poppers 4 times now over a period of say 3 weeks
1st - a few hits at home - amazing. Bit of a headache, went out for a run after no reaction.
2nd - away for 2 days dressed, coupl e of dates, using off an on started getting chesty on 2nd evening. Didnt effect my sleep but next day bad cough lots of mucus, temperature and doctor said chest infection so antibiotics. Assumed it was down to illness. Cleared up in 2/3 days
3rd - At home again bought 5 bottles to sample various types. Started using cotton wool in plastic bag - effect amazing. Believe it or not went out for a run afterwards and no reaction.
4th - An evening away dressed in a hotel room 3 bottles to play with , plastic bag with cotton wool, lots of hits, amazing effects , some smoking then tight chest at around 11pm. Result worst night sleep i have ever had ( not sure i slept at all). Out of it completly next day, went to docs - temperature, chest infection, now 2 days later starting to calm down just a nasty cough.
Conclusions - Whilst i love the effects its the poppers that caused the infections / reaction, they really do screw your lungs. Interesting that a lot of fresh air after a session seems to mitigate the breathing probs but wouldnt want to relay on this after every session. In short im not using ever again - ever. Shame but not worth the health damage.

Kriskid said on Mon, 16 Nov 2015 at 23:28...

Started using poppers regularly a few months ago. Have to say now never again! These things are bad! It was ok for the first few months and I really enjoyed their effects of total randiness and being caught up in the moment. However a few weeks ago I developed this horrible hacking cough and wheezing which often kept me awake at night. Sometimes my chest felt tight and constricted and it was difficult to breathe. I don't smoke and am otherwise fit and healthy. At first I thought it was a chest infection and didn't make the link with poppers so carried on using. The symptoms lasted for at least a month before I finally twigged. I stopped using right away and symptoms cleared up in a couple of days. After a break I tried using again and also changing the brands. I tried 3, sometimes only taking a couple of hits. All had the same horrible after-effects which come on a couple of hours after using. Gees, what is this stuff doing to your insides?! It's inflaming your breathing tubes and filling you with toxins. Sometimes I had a bit of phlegm too which tasted disgusting. So in conclusion, for a few moments of pleasure it's just not worth it. These chemicals are poison, make no mistake.

Hi Kriskid
Interesting that even a couple of hits after a break the symptons returned. I havnt used for a few weeks but have a hot date with my BF next week who wants me use with him and was considering a few hits to spice things up. Will tell him to leave them at home.
These things are nasty

I came to Google poppers and breathing problems and found this page ... had cough for nearly 7 weeks after doing poppers more frequently with trainers etc and huffing rather than just snorting. In the end the doctor diagnosed asthma and prescribed me an inhaler. I like doing poppers but the occurrence of these symptoms among others makes you think twice.

I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking

#Goodbyepoppers said on Sun, 3 Jan 2016 at 12:17...

have been doing some of the newer poppers....have been taking hits a couple to three times a week. I developed a hacky cough, chest tightness and pain, more in the upper lobes of my lungs when breathing in, bending over or sudden position change and could not walk my normal pace due to the pain it would cause in my chest, and have had no energy. This has been going on since Thanksgiving night I visited the Emergency Department where I work. I wasn't able to stand up straight due to the pain I was having across my chest, which inhibited me from breathing properly-thought I was going to die and still question it to this day. Didn't tell the ER staff or Doctor about the poppers. EKG, chest XRAY and cardiac enzymes where ok, my red blood count was down to 3.3 and my leukocytes were also low at 6 and my WBC was 13.6....diagnosis-Bronchitis. I took antibiotics and a prednisone dose pack. I did get a little better. Was a little confused and not sure if the poppers really caused this, so I took about 3 or 4 hits of poppers last week and the pain in my upper chest is worse, which makes very hard to breath and at times I feel as if I'm breathing inside a plastic bag, and can't find a comfortable position to ease the chest pain and when I get out in the cold air and breathe in, It causes me to have a bronchospasm (my chest gets real tight, pain increases and I can't get any air). I ordered these poppers on-line and can't read the label on the brand that I have been using, but does have "PWD" on the bottom of the bottle....the only thing I can say is "Goodbye poppers" and I hope that I get better!!!....Will provide an update when I'm over this crap. I have thrown all poppers out!!!

(MUST READ: HOW I WAS TOTALLY CURED OF EMPHYSEMA THROUGH HERBAL MEDICINE)
I was diagnosed of Emphysema, i was told the toxins in cigarette smokes caused the damage and it has no permanent cure but i was given medication to ease it, it affected me badly, my doctor suggested LVRS as i was constantly out of breath, this continued till i saw a post in a health forum about a herbal doctor from South Africa.

Hmmmm this interesting.
I now know what's causing my issues.
I'm 39 and reasonably fit.
Don't drink or smoke, no other drugs...except poppers.
Been doing themfor many years with a few other guys....and girlfriend.
Been amazing.
Bought a new batch of poppers lastweek......Bloody hell.
My chest feels like I'm being stamped on. Coughing up mucus and hard to breath.
Thought it was a chest infection....due to working out doors in cold weather.

But I rarely get I'll or suffer colds and infections.
These new poppers are obviously the issue.
Poured them away and disposed of the bottles.
Never again. To risky.
Shame though
As sex work poppers is amazing.
But not at a risk to one's health !

Take care of yourselves xxx

I have been using poppers for 52 years. And yes they have changed the chemical make up and they are dangerous. However I have done a little research about how to monitor your oxygen levels while doing poppers. Buy a 02 monitor from your local drug store. On an average a person's 02 level will be around 98 to 99 to 100 % saturation before use. On using the new chemical makes up on any brands, after just a few sniffs, my 02 levels dropped significantly down to as low as 85% which is dangerous and it takes about a week for the 0s levels to return to normal readings. The new chemical makeup inhibits your lungs from performing an intake of oxygen by coating the intake receptors with a form of gel (for lack of a medical term) and result in a bacterial mucus. This is what causes chest pains, weakness and coughing. So can poppers cause COPD....the answer is yes. The best thing to do is go cold turkey and get off of them.....depending upon whether any damage is done, there is a possibility that the body will heal itself when you stop, but it may take up to 4 or 5 months. You be the judge. With age, it gets worse. The best treatment to speed up the healing process without ingesting more medicine is to force cough, and perform long deep breathing techniques, one of which involves inhaling as much air as you can slowly.....then hold it in a few seconds, and then very very slowly let it out to where you feel there is no more air in your lungs, and at the last moment when you think you have no more air, force a cough.....it's uncomfortable, but it works....to prove my point, wear the 02 meter I previously mentioned and experiment with it in this manner and watch how your body responds......regardless either way, get off of them and get healthy.

used some poppers the other night and woke up with a hacking cough.

does anyone get weird specks of phlegm?

Bigirl said on Thu, 4 Feb 2016 at 21:34...

Absolutely gutted at these posts but have confirmed my fears. I love poppers for self play and at swingers parties, have had some amazing times. usually use gold as didnt get the same hit from anything else. I tended to use them every month for 2-3 nights, 1 bottle then throw it away. The last year i have noticed that after every session get a really bad cold within a couple of days which lasts about a week. I also get the blue lips and nails and this can sometimes last into the next day. I dont get too bad a chest more streaming eyes, itchy sore throat and runny nose but feel tired, weak and bloody awful. The last few months i was starting to make the connection but couldnt find any information until tonight. Am so disapointed about giving them up but its not worth the pain. I have had a cold all week since last friday and look terrible. Imwondering about the anaemia /oxygen as my face looks blotchy/pale and bloated. Not quite the sex kitten i felt i was last friday night thats for sure. Will have to stop 😞

servgwfon said on Thu, 3 Mar 2016 at 19:30...

sadly, yes, having consistent experiences with above; i think it's the contemporary formulae for poppers at least in the US

most recently i think the stuff is better than back in 2014, so it's probably evolving to be not as bad, but still congestion issues; i think it can be alleviated by quite spare use, but then of course just not as fun/worth it

(a few times i've been over in Amsterdam have not had the same issue, though much more limited usage those times as only brief stopovers)

AB RSA said on Mon, 7 Mar 2016 at 18:23...

Jep you have a prejudiced site, so just like my previous comm which was not published, this one will not also make it. Nothing positive and all negative so where do you come from? I been using it for years and none of this shit besides the only really negative aspect of "dont remember" how good it was or even anything else the morning after. It has enhanced my marriage and stopped me going elsewhere for sexual highs besides with my wife. Every time I use it when making love to her makes it feel like the very first time we had sex together. This after 36 years together since we met, with poppers happening from more than years ago
Viva la Poppa!

AB RSA said on Tue, 8 Mar 2016 at 19:00...

Ok, so I apologize about it being a negative site and maybe I pushed the wrong key, but seriously, I am cautious and that is why I found my way to this site, appreciate all the feedback and look for all the warning signals from others experiences.
Besides "not being able to remember how good it was the following morning" I have no other side effects that I am aware of. We been married a long time together and she has become a bit cool, and once again, poppers to the rescue even if I got to do it myself in between. Much better than pulling on a condom and being unfaithful with something else and no intimate satisfaction.
I still say:-
Viva la Poppa

Rtpbbcub said on Sun, 3 Apr 2016 at 13:57...

What I have found on the breathing issues and the worse upset stomach can't breath panic attack /asthma attack issue.

Before the problems start:

After using and thirty minutes before going to bed. Take two Excedrin. This tends to, in addition to preventing the headache, avert respiratory issues. Basically you're getting in front of the irritation and reducing the swelling and pain before it gets too far ahead. Most of the breathing issues tend to be related to excess phlegm and swelling, and once those two get going, yeah, hard to go backwards.

If things go bad (upset stomach, spastic coughing fits, or both) :

Two Benadryl, wait 30 minutes, chew three Tums, wait another thirty minutes. Typically this is the wake you up kind. Like you thought you were good, or you were too tired to care, so you went to bed. Couple hours later, wide awake, can't breathe, coughing, feel like you are about to hurl.

At least that's my experience.

The next day is usually a couple strong rounds of coughing, and a sort of tired feeling. Nothing too extreme. As the day goes on I will have some phlegm to clear, and maybe some hiccups. But all in all, nowhere near as bad as if I skip the Excedrin.

Hope this helps!

JT said on Fri, 20 May 2016 at 22:20...

I've used poppers in the past, like 5+ years ago, and sometimes if I used them a lot my nose and throat would feel irritated but it would get better after a day or so. But the past three times I've bought poppers — different brands each time, in the last few months — my lungs have felt like crap for several days after using them. After this third time it's obviously not just a coincidence, so I'm going to swear off using them any more. Apparently isobutyl nitrate (or nitrite? whatever it was that used to be in Jungle Juice Platinum) isn't a problem for me but the new formulas are terrible.

I haven't had problems with mucus, but get a dull pain in my chest when I breathe deeply, and I feel like I'm not getting as much oxygen when I breathe. Walking up a relatively gentle slope gets me winded pretty quickly and I'm getting generally fatigued more easily. It's been almost a week since the last time I used them, but today I'm still feeling bad. I just coughed up a bit of blood which freaked me out and a google search led me to this page.

No more poppers for me. This sucks, I'll have to toss in the trash a multipack that I just bought from uspopshop.com, thinking that they sold "the good stuff". Apparently there is no good stuff anymore.

Dacapt said on Wed, 1 Jun 2016 at 00:16...

Yup.....same here. Woke up in middle of night and couldn't breath (sounded like asthma attack) had to go to ER.......and also persistent cough and weeziness.......which comes back with popper use.

Sorry poppers......we can't be friends anymore......it's not me it's you.......

Thanks for great advice gang. Captain.

Andy said on Sun, 3 Jul 2016 at 08:45...

Same problem, Tickly cough and a thick foamy yellow phlegm after poppers, tight lungs and problems breathing that last a couple of days, never used to get it years ago. I have had this from all of the french brand poppers I have tried. I think less of, and less often is wise. I have gone quite hard at it on prior sessions and some have a very good effect but all now seem to produce these unpleasant side effects. Moderation, moderation, moderation.

Stop using them immediately if you want to remain in good health.

Fuckpoppers said on Tue, 2 Aug 2016 at 23:48...

So I'm a bit of a sexual deviant, tried all sorts over the years, I'm partial to anal play so I thought I'd try poppers for the first time so I bought some and received it yesterday, went at it last night and again this morning and now my left lung feels tight, I'm struggling to breathe properly and there's a stabbing pain whenever I breathe/cough/sneeze, after reading this there seems to be a lot of people blaming "new" poppers, Isopropyl namely, which is what I have and as I said this is FIRST TIME use (wasn't heavy use either) so you can cross prolonged exposure off the suspect list, this stuff is just straight up bad for you, steer clear of Isopropyl.

Steve said on Wed, 3 Aug 2016 at 13:18...

I read through all these posts and have seen enough people posting the same symptoms as me. I've been trying them for about 3 weeks 2-5 sniffs every other day and have uncontrollable coughing, mucus and have had enough of it....ive tried them and can now say I don't like them and don't know why anyone would. Everything I had was dumped in the toilet and flushed. I felt better about it as soon as they were flushed.

Anyways, used poppers on 2/3 occasions now, spent the next 24-48 hours coughing a lung up, with a heavy metallic tang in the back of my throat too. Also have a lot more mucus than usual. Been using Pure Gold XXL. Just discarded remainder of the bottle as I'll no longer be using them. Glad I came here to see I'm not the only one with a fucked chest from taking poppers.

Let's get this stream back on track. Quit the crap Charlotte, Derek Taylor, Mrs Mandy, and Jane C. Puh-leeeeeese. There are people posting in this thread that are genuinely looking for relief from this real issue. Don't kill this!!!

Okay then.

I'm a 54 y/o male, former NCAA d3 athlete and marathon runner, was still playing soccer until @ 2012 2x per week. Discovered poppers in 2010 thanks to a hot tranny friend and was lost to them ever since. Used them nightly - countless times in an evening while masturbating and with all sessions with my friend. In fact, wanking and poppers were melded together into the same thing - never one without the other.

My weapons of choice were (in order) Jungle Juice Platinum, Fist, and Super Rush.

I bought them from sex shops and online and found the online vendors provided - in general - a superior and stronger product than I'd get from sex shops. Probably freshness, but who knows. In case you're wondering, I don't work for consumer reports... NYC sex shops vary, but I have to say have never trusted the product I was getting at these shops...

At first I started buying them one bottle at a time at sex shops, but once I discovered the online option, 5 or 6 at a time so as to avoid the inconvenience of running low on stock. Hell, sometimes the online vendors would even throw in a bottle or two for free... Once or twice a month, 4 or 5 bottles at a time... I'd generally go through about a large bottle a week in total. I'd enjoy them immensely when first opened, then compensate for their increasing weakness by pouring them onto rags and holding them up to my nose constantly for minutes at a time to extract whatever buzz I could as they degraded to useless over time.

The sad state of affairs is that it would not be unusual for me to end up in front of a porn computer screen at night with 3 or 4 of the trusty popper bottles in front of me (for variety and strength), a triple whiskey, and a pack of cigs, plus an ecig as well... Nightly. No kidding. 4 to 5 hours at a go. Think about it - 365 days a year, from 2010 - 2015: no issues at all. Life was good. Life was a haze...

I did notice shortness of breath playing soccer after a particularly heavy binge, but I didn't lay down any scientific controls to test it all to validate what may be causing it. Reading from above, I can't say I readily identify with the "chest stiffness" a number of the posters mention. Certainly I was tired the next day, but I attributed most of the tiredness to staying up until 2am regularly and wanking while drinking copious amounts of whiskey while doing so. I never really blamed the poppers.

From 2010 to 2014 my ability to play soccer competitively for 90 minutes was dropping like a rock...

Then in 2014 I moved across the country and had to quit playing soccer for lack of having a team to play on. So, the soccer ended but the poppers/masturbating sessions did not, nor did the smoking or drinking while enjoying the poppers. If anything, things on that front picked up.

Late 2015 things started degrading more noticeably... I developed a cough which I then attributed to smoking (cigs and ecigs). So - on a regular basis when I'd develop a cough - I'd quite the ecigs, reduce the classic cigs, and in a few days or so I'd be back to a tip-top state and revert to the poppers+cigs+ecigs+whiskey routine...

Over the past 5 months I've finally admitted to the likelihood that the cough is not from the ecigs/cigs, but rather from the poppers. In fact, I deduced the direct connection between the cough and the poppers when the cough became really REALLY bad about 6 months back.

I'd notice that after a fresh batch I'd develop a phlegmy cough which got worse if I carried on with the poppers - especially when I doubled up when they got weak...

Lately I've noticed that the cough would take longer and longer to go away. Normally, if I stopped for about a week, I'd be good to go again after that. The last two times, though, it has taken much longer for the cough to cease. In fact, right now I'm still coughing after almost 8 days with no hits at all...

I know what the answer is: QUIT POPPERS. I'm loathe to see a doctor about the symptoms I'm having... Generally if I quit the poppers for a while the symptoms recede.

Admittedly this understanding about the need to QUIT POPPERS will be 100x easier than quitting smoking, but how will I manage the temptation when the poppers shop I use is on my way home from work...???!!!

As for now, I've had a chronic cough for about 3 months now. So I need to quit and stay quit from poppers for, say, 6 months and then determine if I've quit forever, once and for all.

I tried playing indoor soccer about 6 months ago and could hardly last 5 minutes on the short field. Not good. I blame the poppers and the lack of exercise...

I'll report back in 2 or three weeks with a progress report.

Wish me luck!

Popperexpert said on Thu, 17 Nov 2016 at 04:34...

Been making poppers since 2010....right after Joe Miller(PWD) died. Prior to that, I bought OTC poppers at least 20 times in 2009. Never once did I experience any noticeable side effects with those 20 poppers. It wasn't until I started making my own and then buying POST PWD poppers OTC that I started having lung/breathing issues. This is my BEST GUESS as to what the problem is: poor quality poppers loaded with IMPURITIES!!!!

The sodium nitrite, a raw ingredient needed to make poppers, is VERY oxygen sensitive and if not stored properly ALL the time will degrade to sodium nitrATE, and if used to make poppers, will introduce all types of impurities. I have made hundreds and hundreds of small brews and there is MUCH variety in odor and effects possible...using the SAME ingredients. Mostly, I attribute the variability to sodium nitrite that is not pure enough. Other factors causing impurities can be poor mixing technique when making poppers.

Popper-stim said on Mon, 21 Nov 2016 at 09:26...

DAMN..

I have been a popper user for over 20 years, (I am now in my late 60’s) and gradually became a dependent user over this time where I could not really enjoy or reach a DIY climax without a few snorts. I then found I needed more for the same effect and ended up burning my nose where the top of the bottle touched me when sniffing. So being a ‘clever’ guy I modified dust masks with a tube so that I could get a good hit by placing the tube in the top of the bottle (not in the fluid!) and sniffing. The hit was amazing – but I don’t recommend this, see below. I have been getting my kicks from intense e-Stim which when used with Poppers sends me in to orbit.

But like many things in life there is a price to pay and I have been suffering various symptoms in the last year or so. A chronic cough, breathlessness, chest ache, exposed veins in my nose, heart palpitations, greatly reduced blood pressure making me nearly pass out and headaches.

The sad thing about poppers is that although being a great stimulant and sex aid, they are very addictive. I have vowed to give up many times through negative effects, then when feeling better again slipped back to using them again. I think one can also get hardened to their use and thus take a bigger dose over time for the same hit. I HAVE TO STOP!

If only someone can investigate just how poppers do what they do but to create the same effect with a harmless chemical that can be used regularly over long periods without harming the user. Come on you chemists who make your own! Maybe readers of this may have the answer.

Now I am worrying that I may have COPD which I why I read this blog. Does this herbal remedy really work, there are some many hoaxes these days..

Rock said on Thu, 24 Nov 2016 at 19:48...

@ Popper-stim - do not take any notice of these testimonials that appear sometimes regarding COPD.

You need to STOP using poppers NOW, Bro. Recreational occasional use :OK, but not for you. The underlying issue is the connection you are making between the scent / effect and pleasure. Replace that with something else is my advice and not some other stimulant. It is up to you but poor health is not a good return on a few moments of pleasure, so stop, OK? Not preaching, just sayin...

machunarium said on Thu, 24 Nov 2016 at 22:29...

I ve just discovered poppers for myself a month ago, really liked the effects and first bottle went away just after two nights but....I m a heavy smoker and after three or four days I statred coughing as hell during the nights and literally thought that I m gonna die as those chemicals inside which were inhaled were coming out of me, I used Liquid Gold one, first I thought that it is just because of the cigs, but after I used two more bottles in the next three weeks I realised the real cause which was poppers. The effects are great but the sideeffects outweigh them, I wish there were other ingredients in that liquid, which wouldnt be so harmful)

Popper-stim said on Fri, 2 Dec 2016 at 09:07...

Hi Rock and other readers

It is amazing, I have been off poppers for two weeks and I feel SO much better; heart, BP, Palpitations gone, breathing easily, more energy and general well being. I have been a long term user as I said earlier but maybe once or twice a week, of late it has been several times a DAY! I was slowly poisoning myself. I have also found that a fresh bottle (with no odour) is much better than a half used bottle where the air has got to the liquid. This seems to confirm what was said earlier about the chemical composition changing to a more damaging agent. Sadly it meant throwing half used bottles away. So if you have to use Poppers then only use fresh bottles is my recommendation.

But for me using STIM getting to a climax without them is different but more intense. I will admit though that I miss the heady buzz that they give, but at what price. Hopefully I will not have done too much long term damage. I used to be a proud smoker and eventually gave up and now
can't imagine why I smoked and coughed in the first place. But maybe some genius wil invent e-poppers, that are just as satisfying but TOTALLY harmless.....in the meantime STOP is you can as I have.

P-S

Reporting back in, as promised. Following my October '16 post above, I decided to give it one last try to confirm the connection between poppers and coughing. A purely scientific exercise he says, smiling coyly...

3 strikes and you're out. Connection confirmed. A cough developed on day-2 after purchase, full recovery from the chronic cough took about a month. I still hack every now and then - usually after first laying down at night when I'm going to sleep.

TIME TO QUIT POPPERS TOTALLY AND FOREVER.

Good luck all! I'm sure you will all draw your own conclusions. As for me the answer is as clear as anything ever is for me.

in agreeance said on Sun, 8 Jan 2017 at 16:24...

I have had similar sensations recently. Poppers are getting flushed right now. I've always know they were not healthy, but they were fun and great for a good cock sucking frenzy....

I found this site as I was looking for natural alternatives to poppers. Some essential oils are meant to be europhic. So I'm going to blend up some nice oils and see how I go. First ones to mind are Ylang Ylang and Clary Sage, though they are likely to be similar to weed rather than poppers...

I have been using poppers for like 5 years now.I remember when I first tried it with my ex years ago the feeling was so awesome ,the ultimate orgasm but few years ago I noticed the original rush was out of the market,We couldn't get supplies for months on end . then suddenly this big bottles of manscent & rush was in the market.Sad to say that after a week or so when opened it gets so stale & pointless to use.I use to just throw I it away, now theres other brands ,and sizes but they all the same. There is something bad mixed in poppers now days.Because I have picked up asthma suddenly

I just came to chime in that there's definitely something harmful even in isobutyl formulas. My lungs/chest/cardiovascular system was in ruins after using isobutyl rush and super rush bought from a local sex shop in southern California. I quit them for an entire month, then broke down and bought a 30 ml bottle this weekend. I had a few amazing sessions on Saturday. First session I only took 2 hits and came immediately. Second session I lasted longer and took around 10 hits. By the 3rd session, now late in the evening, my chest was already getting tight. I took another 10 hits and was done. Took some aspirin and a Claritin and some benadryl and went to bed. I woke up barely able to breathe. Sunday was hell. Now it's Monday morning and I feel a little better. But my lungs and chest are so heavy, I can barely go up stairs. I'm just sitting at work now drinking hot tea and trying to focus on steady breathing. I feel like I need to dump that bottle and never touch this stuff again. It's the most amazing stuff in the world when I'm in the middle of a session and that's why I keep coming back to it, but all of the chest congestion just isn't worth it.

Its addictive said on Sun, 2 Apr 2017 at 23:15...

Hands up for suffering from the use of Poppers! I haven't been breathing well for a few years now and it's only getting worse for me. My breathing gets better the longer I stay away from poppers then I think I can get away with using and like everyone above relates after one night of use I can't breath well for days. I have tested the different name brands and formulas and one sniff or two sniffs of poppers and wham I'm fucked in the lungs. I knew right away that the breathing issues I was experiencing was due to the use of poppers (new formula or old formula long term use could be the problem)? As much as I love the use of poppers without the old formula available I can not and should not ever use again. It is too painful and scary to thing how much worse it will get. The first time I ever used Amyl Nitrate back in 1986 I thought what the holy hell was that... loved it but wouldn't use frequently because just the reaction it had on my brain and body I knew it couldn't be a healthy choice. At last I have used poppers in my relationship to have sex once or twice a week for over 15 years. Not all the time but more frequent than we should have. My partner doesn't have the same degree of breathing issue I have but his is getting worse he reports. I'm writing this as a declaration of my story that whatever the formula is now it is killing me as I can feel that I have permanent damage to my lungs. Someone said to me that "since you quite smoking 10 years ago and all of the studies on quitting show that you may not see any health problems due to smoking 10 years after quitting" So I can't blame my current lung difficulties on being an ex-smoker for over 10 years. I hope that my addiction to poppers since it's only a weekly - bi-weekly or quarterly problem that crops up I can just quite for good. Breathing naturally again is my dream. breath in breath out don't use poppers. I want to breath in and out and not have to be embarrassed that I can't finish a sentence without losing my breath and coughing up a lung. FUCK ME!!! Life is to short to live with this problem. I'm now an ex popper user!

sam C said on Tue, 4 Apr 2017 at 08:24...

I am so glad I found this site and can relate to everyone's experiences with poppers. I love the effect and it makes sex SO hot, especially when alone to be honest when you're in complete control of the timing etc. One post above is just the same for me.....enjoy the porn vid, with cigs and poppers for hours! But I have had an off and on wheezy throat, cough, mucus especially after many inhalations. Once I had too much and had a white-out in one eye....which remained continuously blurred - that took 6 months exactly to clear which it did by itself. The times when I really over do the poppers is when I get home from the pub or having had a drinking session and then want to play music - on with the headphones and out with favourite CD's...and a little bottle....and that's the start of a session which can go on for hours - replaying the same track over and over sometimes with another flush of poppers every time....a real high buzz but it slows down the bod next day.
I'm in Scotland and there's a new brand called Potent Blue..fuck me it's industrial in strength and can blow you away...need to control it.

Having read all of the above I'm gonna cut right down - like another guy here I thought it was the fags but as has been said the body is very good at telling us it's not happy.

Thanks everyone this is so helpful.

Deathdeal said on Mon, 24 Apr 2017 at 22:17...

Looks to me that I don't need to try poppers and the new formula is trying to cut some of the population down I was really going to go buy some until I read all this thank you

Bi_Guy said on Tue, 16 May 2017 at 18:16...

I thought it was just me that suffered these problems.

I am 49, and started using poppers earlier this year. I am reasonably fit, slightly overweight and haven't smoked for 10 years. At first it was AMAZING! Such a rush, edging was the best experience I have ever had.

Using them a couple of times a week at first, everything was fine. After about a month of using them (English) I started getting a tight chest about six hours afterwards, with symptoms reminiscent of asthma. After a couple of episodes I dug out an old Ventolin and that made me breathe a lot better.

I used them for the last time a few nights ago. I had quite a big asthma attack, and ended up pouring my remaining bottles onto the garden. I cannot keep using them. I so, so want to but am sure this is going to end up killing me.

The latest formula for English is definitely suspect. I would recommend to anybody wanting to try them not to. They are psychologically addictive and likely to make you ill.

After having a persistent cough for over a year, I was diagnosed with COPD in March 2015. In 2016 my COPD got worse to the point where not only do I have trouble sleeping at night, I also struggle to get air into my lungs. I read in a health forum of a herbal centre (Traditional Herbal Healing Centre) who have successful treatment to COPD/Emphysema, i immediately contacted the herbal centre via their website and purchased the COPD herbal remedy, I used the remedy for 2 weeks, all my symptoms were reversed, i did another test for confirmation, i was declared COPD free.

Guys if your inhaling toxins then of course it's going to damage your lungs. Problem is there's no evidence into the long term effects. Much like smoke was back in the day.

Gas mask poppers said on Sun, 28 May 2017 at 02:29...

Please stop this advertisment bullshit!

Back to topic: I'd classify myself as pretty heavy poppers user. I'm in my 30s right now and have been inhaling this stuff for 9 years already, often 3 to 4 times a week for 2 to 3 hours. Due to some incidents (see below) I sometimes paused for a few weeks/months before continuing again. I don't count the hits, because I usually don't hit the bottle directly, but inhale through a gas mask putting a soaked cotton ball in the filter. This gives a nice and steady stream of poppers fumes and keeps me in the 'zone' for hours. Plus, you don't burn your nostrils. Unfortunately, the bottles empty pretty quickly, sometimes I go through two (small) bottles in one session. For me, masturbation and poppers are deeply linked. Every time I try to do without poppers, it just feels awfully bland, barely scratching the surface of the kind of amazing orgasms that can be possible when using the vapor. Even when having sex with other guys I have the feeling 90% is missing when not taking any poppers.

I've experienced all kind of bad side effects, including heavy coughing, shortness of breath, blue lips and fingers, degradation of central vision, and headaches of course.

I started my 'career' with Isopropyl mainly. Great feeling, but even from the very beginning I had vision problems that usually went away after a few hours (yellow spots, degraded visual acuity, walking 'ants' when focusing on straight solid lines on screen or paper, light sensitivity at night). One day after an exceptionally long and deep poppers binge the vision problems persisted, never going back to normal. I had a hard time accepting that, and stopped taking poppers for a while before returning back to them, promising to myself to be more careful. Well, yeah. This was seven years ago.

Sometimes I experienced heavy coughing and mucus approx. three days after heavy use, that would stay with me for a week up to ten days. I'd say this happened once every two months and was a clear signal to me to temporarily stop taking poppers. So I stopped until the symptoms were gone, then started again. One day five years ago coughing wouldn't go away, making it difficult for me to sleep, breath and even speak because every breath ended with a severe cough. A chest x-ray didn't reveal anything suspicious. Coughing got better after three months and was completely gone after six. Back to normal (except for my eyes), and I also ramped up poppers usage again, now promising to myself to be extra-extra careful.

Bad as it is, I mainly sticked to Isopropyl. I didn't like Isobutyl because it seemed not as strong and just thinking of inhaling a known carcinogenic through a gas mask gave me the shivers. I tried Isopentyl a few times, but had to cough immediately when inhaling this stuff. So given my previous experience with coughing I was not eager to use Isopentyl at all. However, with time Isopropyl had more and more side effects on me: For the last few years I turned blue (blue lips, blue nails, blue everything) every single time I inhaled it. Often I had congestion even after a single hit, so I continued to inhale through my mouth. I virtually always ended up with strong headaches, usually a few hours after end of session and lasting for 8 hours or so. Usually I would have my session before going to bed, have my color restored over night and sleeping over the majority of my headaches. Coughing was under control but usually I was short on breath and kind of weak the day after a session (so actually a majority of days...). I'm a pretty fit guy, but poppers threw me out of my gym routine, so I adjusted poppers use and gym use so that they don't interfere too much.

Due to another poppers binge with subsequent vision degradation I tried to switch to Isopentyl more often although it gave me a bad cough. Probably I was thinking I'd rather cope with a cough than being blind. I learned to suppress the immediate cough reflex and actually enjoyed pentyl a lot. But roughly a year ago I started to get chest pain that would not go away (interestingly no coughing though). I began to develop a chronic inflammation of my voice chords, which also resulted in episodes of strong breathing difficulties and wheezing. Sometimes I feared not being able to suck in enough air and almost panicked. To this day I still have these symptoms, often finding it difficult to speak for prolonged periods of time or in a loud crowd. I stopped taking poppers half a year ago and seem to recover very, very slowly. Vision seems to get better (or maybe I have learnt to live with it) and even the chest pain seems to get weaker every month.

So now that I feel a bit better again, I think of getting me a new batch of poppers, promising myself to be really really super extra careful. Do you see a pattern there? I know this stuff is doing harm to me and it already has done some irreparable damage. Yet I still think about getting a few bottles just to feel the amazing orgasms again. Half a year without poppers and I still miss it. Sex and masturbation was dull and boring the last six months and now I fear the day I'm horny enough to click the 'order' button in my favorite online poppers shop...

So my advice: Stay away if you haven't started yet. Try to get away if you already started. If you can't, then at least try to moderate yourself, listen to your body and pause for a week or two. If you already have symptoms: Most of them are temporary but you may not notice the day when they become permanent, even if you think you have yourself under control. Don't take it for granted that you have good eyesight, don't take it for granted that you can breathe freely. Both can be over sooner than you think.

PQ said on Sun, 11 Jun 2017 at 08:45...

I've been an on and off user of poppers since about '88. I've tried many of the changing formulas over the years, and never had a problem until sometime in 2015, when I started having a near-constant sore throat, and experienced episodes of shortness-of-breath. The breathing-problems weren't all the time... it would just show up unexplained. I'm a walker, and can easily go for 5-6 miles. One time, I went for a walk and, after only 20 minutes, had to sit down on a street-corner to catch my breath- very scary! Finding the cause was driving me nuts... was it a food-allergy? Was it the new FSC papers used for cigarettes? I started eliminating things... and discovered it was the latest popper formula. I don't think it's the active chemical common in the US right now (isobutyl-), as I've been using this for years... but rather the inactive carrier used to dilute it that seems to be the problem. The latest bottles I've got are noticeably weaker, and have a slightly-different odor... I can't stand these symptoms, so I'm going to lay off for awhile. Yesterday, I took only 2-3 whiffs total, and today my throat feels swollen, sinuses are plugged, and my lungs are tight. This is NOT fun. I'm starting to entertain bad conspiracy theories and it gives me anxiety to go there.

Sam said on Wed, 14 Jun 2017 at 21:10...

I'm worried. I just started trying poppers without doing much research and I did it two days in a row in three separate sessions. I already smoke cigarettes and weed moderately. I never plan to do poppers again after hearing what it can do to your lungs. If I throw the stuff out and take it easy on my lungs for a while, will I be fine? Or am I permanently damaged?

PopperButt said on Sun, 18 Jun 2017 at 08:33...

Sam, you're fine. Generally what happens is that there are no symptoms at first, then, weeks later, after heavy usage you'll feel the effects on your lungs within a few hours to a day. It can be real bad for about 12 hours then begins to clear up. the problem is that when it gets bad, it's nightmare bad. You can just read all the descriptions above for more info on that. For you though, having only done it a couple times with no symptoms means you'll be fine.

Even so, GOOD CALL on not doing it anymore. I ignored some of the early warning signs and tried to tough it through and ended up getting addicted. I'm trying to wean off but I'm, constantly dealing with coughing, not getting enough oxygen when I sleep, being out of breath all the time, and having a heavy feeling on my chest, like I'm being sat on, every time I get the addiction craving and over do it. I wish I had stopped after the first weekend.

mystory said on Sun, 18 Jun 2017 at 19:19...

Well I've used poppers too. Read every one of the posts before this. I started using them in the '70's. Saw people have blue lips and finger nails even back then. The one's that sniffed and sniffed and ,,,, etc. I also smoked cigs. 'Til '99. Had pneumonia then and went on the patch for about 3 months to get free of my nicotine addiction. Got sober in '90 and quit pot for over 20 years. But did poppers the whole time. The last thing I had left. Well sex too. But it was PCP pneumonia in '99 (AIDS marker). Yep I was dying. Wouldn't go to the hospital til I was dying. Thought that was what I should do. I was thrilled to find out that lack of oxygen makes you crazy. (oh is that it?) lol ok So why do we turn blue? Lack of oxygen. That is what poppers do to us. Don't know exactly how but the evidence speaks for itself. Loved poppers. Started staying "off" for longer after the last snort. Had to lay on the bed or when recovered a little sit in a chair. It was causing a rapid heart beat making me feel out of it. Near the end of my use I too would turn blue in the lips and nails. Didn't like it much but was not shocked by it at all. Then June 7th and 8th 2015 in the morning I woke up gasping for air. I had shortness of breath for years before that. I would have gone to the ER but I had Dr. appointment that day. They sent me to urgent care. They did an xray and blood tests, gave me a breathing treatment and put me on oxygen. Prescribed some meds that I picked up at the in-house pharmacy and off I went. They came that night to set up the oxygen machine and tanks in my apartment but I wasn't ready for it so they gave me a fresh tank of oxygen and came back the next day. Been on oxygen 24/7 since then. They said I had asthma and emphysema. Hadn't smoked for 15 years but was doing poppers the whole time. Found out I had skin cancer in Oct. of 2015 too. Like tanning beds? I loved them. I'm not claiming cause and effect for any of this but with that countless strings of posts here it seems obvious something is up. Don't want anyone getting the wrong idea about my post so I'll end with this. Every day I wake up in the morning I feel that I'm the luckiest man on earth. God loves everyone of us and I'm alive to say so.

Sissypops said on Mon, 26 Jun 2017 at 17:14...

I've never in my life been so addicted to a substance as I have been to these stupid poppers. I successfully spent the last couple of weeks clean, but then got an idea to try again. I got a bottle of super rush black label from a local shop and went hard all weekend and here i am at work on Monday, once again, barely able to breathe. I cant think, every breath is painful, I'm starting to wonder if I'm not getting enough oxygen to my brain. Even my legs and arms hurt. I hate this stuff so much. I wish i never ever tried it. Im so addicted, and it's obviously killing me. I don't even know where to get help. I've ruined myself.

The isopropyl formula in uk poppers gave me long term vision problems.

Footluv777 said on Wed, 5 Jul 2017 at 01:13...

I will never do poppers again !!!!!!
I went a little too heavy the last time and took about 20 hits from the bottle.
Later that night I woke up and could barely take a breath. It took me several worry filled hours and trying to relax to start getting even a half a breath.
The next day was a little better but still had a really hard time breathing. My chest was very tight and my airway felt very restricted.
It took two weeks to finally start feeling better.
I was beginning to think I did permenant damage, but it seems ok now.
I recommend we all just stop using them, even though it feels out of this world its just not worth it. I don't want to end up like some old person dragging an oxygen tank around everywhere.
The brand I use was fist to cuffs from sanfrancisco poppers. I think it is made with isobutile nitrate.
Again just stop using these things !!!!!!!
Iam sure they can cause irreversible damage if abused for too long. Just stop !!!!!

justsayno said on Mon, 7 Aug 2017 at 18:58...

Guys, just flush the stuff. I never used to have problem with the old formulas, but this new shit is really bad for you. I don't smoke and I still get a deep mucous cough for 2 - 4 days the next day even after moderate usage. Heavy usage gave me blurred vision which took weeks to go away... nasty, horrible stuff. Avoid!!

Sissypops said on Mon, 14 Aug 2017 at 20:34...

After a month and a half of recovery i finally have been feeling like i can breathe again and am back to my old self for the last week. So... That's about 5 weeks of total recovery time. The first week was the worst, and then the next two were ok with a persistent cough and tightness in the chest. The next two weeks after that I felt ok but it was still hard to exercise and take very deep breathes. Then for the past week or been fine. Now today i am back to normal, the craving to do poppers has returned with a ferocity. It would be so easy and i really really want to do them again. I guess the question i have to ask myself is: do i want monster orgasms, or do i want to feel good amd breathe easily? Apparently it can't be both. Egads, what a frustrating addiction.

GG said on Tue, 15 Aug 2017 at 04:53...

Thanks Sissypops have been following your story and am glad you are recovering.

I acquired a bottle of Rush on the weekend, and I have only done poppers a few times in the past, very intermittently, with no side effects. All I did was two or three hits, and about an hour after I felt short of breath, dizzy, which caused a bit of panic which probably made things worse. I went to ED as I was having all symptoms of an asthma attack. They calmed me down and all my tests, blood ecg, chest X-ray etc were fine, but I was still short of breath. I followed up with my doctor the following day after still struggling to breath, he prescribed me some xanax to calm me down, which did work, and I thought I was getting better until I became breathless again and went into another panic attack and hyperventilating. My shortness of breath is yet to clear up, albeit it has only been two days since the inhalation. In my case my doctor thinks my anxiety is driving my symptoms up and making them worse, so really trying to relax and restore my breathing to normal.

Will not be trying poppers again after this, I'm sure the initial
Symptoms were caused by the rush, but they have opened up anxiety and panic issues for me too.

It was a brand new unopened bottle of Rush, which I have used in the past, this one felt different during use and brought on all of the above so would assume there have been changes in formula.

brutus said on Fri, 8 Sep 2017 at 20:01...

the uk isobutyle was the best, but no more, to make it legal was adjusted to what you buy now from UK, shite...it was put through the legality system by a gay mp, i'm straight but the intense orgasm is addictive!!! I had breathing problems after 10 sniffs a night whilst knocking one out, and had breathing problems throughout the day. You need to do one night and leave it for 4 nights to get the same high and let your lung or lungs to recover depending on what nostril your sniffing from, recover on the non UK stuff.
Ive bought the UK stuff from uk sex shops and don't get the same breathing problems but the hit is gone the second time you sniff it, so Europe imports are more potent but not as regulated as much as the uk I'm confirming..the EURO seen is more potent as sold as leather cleaner but it will fuck your breathing up..
Bring back 1997 extasy blue doves! same hit as the first hit but chilled all night dancing and no one fucking died!

Sissy hypno popper addict said on Wed, 13 Sep 2017 at 07:25...

Guys im 2 weeks in and im struggling out if air mixing with the fluid is the problem ? New bottles dont give me any breathing probs but the half full ones seem to wreck my breathing for 2 days . These hyno popper vids are so fuckin brainwashing if done on poppers .

Sissypops said on Thu, 28 Sep 2017 at 16:18...

I think air mixing with it might be PART of the problem, it seems like it's s not that bad with fresh new bottles, but I've had the breathing problem happen even with a fresh bottle. Admittedly, i always go hard, even on a fresh bottle, but what fun is limiting yourself to just one sniff? Anyway, i think the main problem is with the new formulas themselves. After struggling with this addiction and the breathing issues for a full year I've decided that i just can't do it unless they fix the formula. It sucks, and i have to fight the urge to go buy a bottle EVERY DAY. I'm able to abstain by taking big breaths and feeling how nice it is to breathe painlessly, and i also look at this thread a couple times a week to remind myself how bad it gets. I loved how fun the hypno vids are with poppers and i miss it so much, but it was literally a choice between breathing or not breathing. Such a crazy situation.

Dr. Todd, I can’t thank you enough for the laughs we have had at my ex’s expense. She was NOT a good girlfriend by any means and did a lot to hurt me. By the time we were separated there was so much pent up frustration that I had to do something. I sought you out to curse her for her wrong doings. The weeks that followed I would get the occasional report of bad things happening to her. Nothing harmful but amusing (at least to me). The most memorable one was that she was showering and the side of her house fell off, literally fell off, strong gust of wind. This included the inside of the shower wall as well. Upon further investigation they found a serious leak that had rotted clear through the walls and the glue that was holding on the shower surround just wasn’t enough to hold the whole wall anymore. I would have paid to see that! Who does that happen to??? I still can’t stop laughing about that one. E-mail:manifestspellcast@gmail. com or manifestspellcast@yahoo. com

Thanks! ~Anthony, United States, Los Angeles, CA

Saintmarks said on Fri, 6 Oct 2017 at 06:47...

Read the whole thread. Just started back with gay sex a year ago. Messed around with guys in college but left it totally at grad.

Didn't take too long to come across guys using poppers. Took a light sniff a couple of times and didn't like the smell so no interest. Finally had one guy show me how to close off a nostril at a time and take a big whiff. Oh my, the pleasure for those 2 to 3 minutes while he gave oral was better than any orgasm.

Still used them sparingly, usually when a partner had them and while being orally stimulated. Then i tried them while giving oral stimulation and oh my! I became one with the member! Ecstasy!

Well maybe 6 months into using every coupler of weeks, i developed a really wet cough that lasted a couple of days. Got some cough syrup at the local CVS and thought little of it. Next time i used maybe a couple le of weeks later, same thing
In the space of two months, i have had coughs for a couple of days afterward. Last night tried a different brand.... my friend's favorite, Jungle juice black platinum i believe. I had hoped the change of brand would help (used Rush before). It was worse. Today experienced a much tighter chest with a persistent but less productive cough and have felt general lethargy.

Decided to Google and found this forum. Enough warnings and similarities to go pour the bottle of rush from my fridge down the drain. No more.

One observation, i noticed a similarity in the posts here but have many friends who use these without these symptoms. I wonder if certain ones of us are more susceptible but it sounds more common because all of us are finding this site by googling our symptoms while those that can use without these side effects have no reason to find this site and leave their comments.

I have used no other recreational drugs and rarely drink. Pretty straight laced otherwise. I suck dick and do poppers. Did. This site is too eye opening to continue. And a damn shame cause that 2 minute rush with a dick in your mouth or a mouth on your dick is something else.

Sissypops said on Mon, 9 Oct 2017 at 21:43...

Good for you, Saintmarks. Best decision you could make. I agree that it seems like only a portion of us get the breathing problems, and it's quite a shame, but as you've read the quality of life decrease for those of us affected is pretty huge. I'm constantly fighting the urge to use again but I know from experience that if i do the after-effects are going to be terrible. At this point, it takes me about a month before I'm breathing normally again. One weekend of fun = one month of misery.

Matt said on Thu, 12 Oct 2017 at 06:07...

DAMNIT!!! I tried these in May 2017 and had an incredible experience with my girlfriend. Brought the same batch home from vacation and experienced solo popper use with porn. Wow! I've never felt so good. I experienced no negative side effects. The product was rush. So a few weeks later I bought some more rush locally. A very small amount destroyed my lungs. Also wasn't as strong. I could tell it was different than the first batch. I tried again several months later. Destroyed my lungs again and poured it down the drain. I WANT TO FEEL THAT AGAIN but I like to breathe. Someone please advise where to get old school poppers.

Popped said on Sat, 28 Oct 2017 at 23:16...

The rather fetching deathly palour and blue lips effect from Poppers that some posters have mentioned is called ‘methaemoglobinaemia’. The LGBT Foundation Webpage about poppers says this:

Extremely high doses can cause the potentially fatal ‘methaemoglobinaemia’ whereby the blood is unable to carry oxygen to cells in the body (similar to what happens during Carbon Monoxide Poisoning).

I used to get this if I'd had a proper porn and poppers edging binge, I would be exhausted and lethargic and my bones would ache that night and the next day. I would write the day off and pour the bottle of poppers away...fall into shame feelings...and vow never to buy them again...until...

More recently I've had what I thought was a month long chest infection, but it is now looking more like asthma like symptoms. After binging 4 evenings in a row I ended up in A&E at 4AM with severe breathing difficulties - tightening of chest, wheezing, etc.

This never used to happen before 2012 but has regularly since so I do think the change in the formula as other posters have mentioned is a big aspect. Recently I've used Amsterdam Gold, O-Juice, English and Xtreme. Whenever I've used in the past 2 years I've been chasing the old style hit - though with the new formula in these brands - sometimes the immediate rush is intense but then wears off really fast.

Also with these new formulas, sometimes I've held my thumb over the top of the open bottle whilst edging - and been alarmed to see that my thumb has developed a nicotine like dark brown stain - I used to think...if it is doing that to my thumb, what is it doing to my lungs? I would leave off for a bit, and then find myself buying a bottle for a 'lost day' of edging or a sauna visit with edging to follow. Old habits!

I've used poppers on and off for 10 years, and stopped using altogether 2 weeks ago. This thread has helped immensely with that decision. My chest is much better, my breathing feels normal. My self esteem is higher - I'm not cheating myself for a quick buzz, even though I do miss that buzz.

Feelings of shame are also why I haven't sought advice before, but this information and these symptoms need to be more widely understood. The labels say 'room odoriser' but everyone knows how they're really used.

I've given up for good and the new formula should be banned IMO. I'm hoping I've had a lucky escape.

It's addictive said on Sun, 5 Nov 2017 at 18:50...

Returning to post update (last posted April 2, 2017).

I haven't used poppers since March-2017. I found this webpage and all of the stories here because I was experiencing the same scary shit all of you are reporting experience with from abuse of poppers. It was really hard when the breathing issues first started and worrisome to say the least. I must say I believe that it was the change in formula sometime in 2015-16 that caused the problem (whatever it was they did to change the ingredients at this point really fucked a lot of us and more will experience this before they are through). We as a couple started experiencing breathing poorly - real lung problems, poor vision, lethargy and overall coughing with little to no production of mucus in 2016 and took awhile for us to get off the poppers as we were addicted to using them. Couldn't breath right afterward and then the wheezing started. Just couldn't breath well at all...

It's been 7 months now since we stopped the popper use and we both still have breathing issues... Shortness of breath and wheezing at times. My breathing has not cleared up to my satisfaction at all. I can say it is better than if I hadn't stopped popper use. I'm certain of that.

When I started experiencing breathing issues I went to the doctor I couldn't tell them that i had been using poppers - just couldn't bring myself to do that. So i just talked about having breathing issues and they thought possibly allergies were the culprit. I had a pulmonary lung capacity test done and found that I could pass that within the range of an average 50 year old. So I had some hope... I also started to snore... so was given a sleep apnea test and found that I had moderate to severe sleep apnea this cropped up or got considerably worse in the last two years. I have been with the same partner for two decades and never had a problem with snoring for either one of us. So now I use the CPAP machine and am sleeping 20% better than I had been and so is he. I know this because i have monitored my sleep on a smart phone app for almost 4 years now and the percent of better sleep has increased in the last 4 months. It took time to get through all of the doctors visits and analysis.

We did try smoking pot before sex and that was an eyeopener - (wow) who knew... But the smoke is harsh on fragile or damaged lungs so we have taken to eating pot brownies and that way the smoke doesn't harm the lungs and the effect is good.

I wish that I could report that the lungs were totally back to normal after 7 months but they are not. We are both hiv negative, rarely drink or smoke pot and get some moderate exercise. The smoke from wildfires was also a huge problem this year for me...

To your good health I hope that you find a way to stay off poppers, get a lot of oxygen from the forest and excise and with any hope in six more months I can report the breathing is much much better than it is now.

The weirdest thing for me is that we used poppers from 2001 - 2015/16 without any issues or serious problems to report. The FDA outlaws ingredients in poppers in 2015/16 forcing the manufactures to change the formula of ingredients. SO Now 1000's if not tens of thousands of popper users are experiencing the harsh reality of damage to the lungs do to the new formula forced on us by the FDA restrictions of what was working for enhanced sexual pleasure for many years (moderate use for sure).

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis said on Wed, 8 Nov 2017 at 00:41...

Could it be your lungs are now permanently scarred from the use of poppers? Could you end up losing a lung and then being diagnosed
with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis?

The doctors don't know what causes it. Only that it is environmental. Makes me wonder if Poppers could be one form of the environmental culprit for some sufferers. It would seem that the my lungs most definitely feel scarred. Best to not sniff. People diagnosed with IPF die within 3-5 years. Dang shame!

Hello everyone out there, I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX 2 VIRUS, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i opened up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mailed him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after 3 weeks of taking the medication, i started filling some changes in my body. I went to the hospital for medical check up and to my greatest surprise, my doctor confirmed me Herpes Simplex 2 Virus negative. so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him at moonlightherbalcure@gmail.com
