I have found that some poppers make me cough all night after using them. Sometimes, the cough will carry on through the next night.

Is there a certain ingredient I need to avoid? Are there some that do not have that side effect? If so, any recommendations?

Never had that myself mate. Tried using Isobutyl rather than isopropyl?

hershie said on Tue, 20 May 2014 at 20:47...

I feel the same way!
Just take less (sniff only 2 times or so)
with pentyl nitrite, I have not the problems (Nitro is really good)

Try sniffing 'Olbas Oil' immediately after a session, it clears the tubes and reduces mucous.

I always get this with isopropyl. And, eventually, scabby nostrils.

Isobutyl is a bit better. But you do still get the cough to a lesser extent.

You didn't get it with Amyl, but you can't get Amyl these days :o(

hershie said on Thu, 29 May 2014 at 16:14...

what is the difference between amyl nitrite and pentyl nitrite?
OK you can't buy amyl nitrite, but I think Pentyl Nitrit is really good!

Hi James,

I belong to one of those who get coughing problems after.

I get it every time and it starts for about 4-5 hours after and I have the cough up to three days. Always gets more worse when I'm trying to sleep. I can't take deep breaths, it feels like there is some resistance to breath. I also cough up some really sticky jelly or something, it comes from the lounges.

But my latest buy from powerpoppers.com was good. I got very mild symptoms after. I bought the JungleJuice plus.
I can recommend that for you to try and see. It might have been some poppers my body couldn't handle.

Makes you think one more time about the safety right :-)?

I have the exact same problem... Never used to be like that. It's amazing at first, and then 2-3 hrs later I have congestion, can't breathe easily, and major coughing fits at night (this is from just 2 puffs). I'm on her because I'm looking for an over-the-counter remedy, however if you have an inhaler (the "reliever" NOT the "actuator";-) it works wonders on that end.

Popsukle said on Tue, 2 Sep 2014 at 13:14...

It's the isopropyl ones that cause coughing generally. These are the only ones you can buy legit in UK stores. Don't waste your money. Far better to get some 'proper' poppers off the net. Pentyl and isobutyl ones don't cause coughing for me.

Tuffy said on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 at 22:15...

yes I had also the same problem of breathing ... for September ... ( just after sniff Brown bottle !!!

I don't know excatly from witch poppers it come !

I've experienced the same thing with a lingering cough after a prolonged popper session. This past weekend I had some really long popper induced edging sessions. A few monthsww ago when I had a bought with the flu I bought a thing called MyPureMist to help keep my lungs clear. I had the idea to use it this past weekend after each popper session. It worked pretty good. Almost no cough to speak of after a 3 day popper binge. Check it out

Shane said on Sun, 28 Jan 2018 at 14:26...

Hello
I am facing the same problem too.
Terrible cough and stays for few days!
I am a bit worried and am even considering Gp
Consultation.
And I am actually using jungle juice platinum.
Let me know if you guys got any solution, else I reckon I should give up poppers!

Steviemac said on Fri, 22 Jun 2018 at 16:02...

Just responding to you guys with the coughing. I've used poppers since the late 80s and they used to be so Good! Unfortunately what you get in the UK now ain't good at all. After an evening of use I'm coughing really
Badly for days bringing up nasty mucus.
I think the only way forward is to buy the real stuff online

Bob said on Fri, 24 Aug 2018 at 16:38...

Stevie
What is the Ďrealí stuff?

Mexicanbottom said on Sun, 16 Sep 2018 at 14:46...

Any brands you recommend that would not cause coughing afterwards. I have used them for a few years & first time I get to cough afterwards. Its supposed to be the same but since my country is rather corrupted they miht change the liquid from the original bottle. I use black by rush and amsterdam.

Sniffer 63 said on Fri, 21 Dec 2018 at 01:56...

Hi having coughing and breathing problems after use which brand is strong but does not have you coughing as much thanks

CK Brussels said on Fri, 19 Apr 2019 at 10:58...

I grew up in the 80's when we had amyl nitrate which was incredible. I have tried many different brands, however, frustratingly, I always end up with a cough which can last for days and can be nasty. I am frustrated and annoyed.

BuffBeachDad said on Sun, 21 Jul 2019 at 07:41...

Jungle Juice does the same for me.... so annoying! But also glad Iím not the only one.

Buck Angus said on Tue, 30 Jul 2019 at 03:22...

Ive tried Rush, Super Rush, Jungle Juice, Jungle Juice Platinum, and several others,, Iíll start coughing a few hours after a session of taking 4-6 hits. My chest hurts, coughing up flem. It usually goes away after a few hours later..... ruins a nights sleep and I feel bad the next day.

Love the poppers but they donít love me back, lol. I truly wished there was a better alternative.

Polo said on Wed, 7 Aug 2019 at 03:49...

Yes this happened to me i was nervous that maybe i caught std in throat lol so will it go away did i jus went to hard usin it? I have thick mucous in my throat.

Polo said on Wed, 7 Aug 2019 at 03:51...

Yes what is the real stuff?

Stevie Colo said on Sun, 25 Aug 2019 at 00:57...

Get some Vickís VapoRub , put a lil on a Qtip and inhale in nostrils. I get a congested cough and headache after a poppers session. It really helps

Me too...been there said on Wed, 16 Oct 2019 at 07:35...

Omg. Yeah Iíve been wondering. I thought I had bronchitis. And my mother has been so worried. I have not been able to tell her Iíve been inhaling poppers! Then with the vapping our breaks. It took me a
Month or two to figure out it was the poppers and not bronchitis. I am glad to know that this is an issue, and that I am not having a unique reaction. Iíve started taking GUAIFENESIN and taking cough drops.

Eventually , you will need to get the fluid out! Once I understood the issue I understood how to cough it all out!

But......

What are the brands which have not made you cough? I get a feeling that some are different than others.

Sam said on Wed, 27 Nov 2019 at 12:09...

I've been having the same problem, if I take poppers only 1 or twice I get only mild cough and if more then 2 times then it gets really bad, I mean so bad I can't even breath some times, so i de stopped using them for now, and looking for some recommendations which 1s are good.
Also 1 tip, have a shawer after session ASAP as it helps and reduces the coughing. Otherwise it will be awufull and won't be able to sleep all night.

Headhunter469 said on Thu, 19 Dec 2019 at 02:52...

Has anyone tried Primetime mist/ofc asthma inhaler after using poppets?

Itkithrd2 said on Mon, 13 Jan 2020 at 19:49...

Been having the same issues if I go on a poppers binge I get coughing within hours. I love them but they kill my night and day usually afterwards.will try the Vic vapor rub and see if that cuts anything. My lungs feel like I have the flu but have found a decongestant does help but by no means a fix for it.

Bernard said on Sat, 8 Feb 2020 at 08:08...

It's happened to me too I batteling to breath and coughing a day later even if I breath air I'm coughing

Bernard said on Sat, 8 Feb 2020 at 08:12...

God at least I can chill now knowing iv not got a emphysema..I just want it to stop its pritty bad

Mistakes were made said on Tue, 7 Apr 2020 at 07:15...

I knew the danger but I took them thinking, "just a little, to help figure out how to get a super O." 5 times and I got off it. Lungs still hurt a week later. It was bliss but now I'm scared I won't ever recover. It feels a little bit better every day. Here's to hoping I can breathe fully again in time...

Thigh said on Mon, 13 Apr 2020 at 22:28...

My
Cough got a Tiny little better every day but The cough took weeks to go completely .Given up poppers now !

CV said on Sun, 3 May 2020 at 00:10...

Same for me. Haven't used poppers in a while, used it last night, old bottle, within 2 hours i had a terrible cough thatg went on for hours. Woke up this morning and thought it was gone - but nope, it's back, and it's gross. And of course it makes me worry it's coronavirus but I actually think it was the poppers because i have hardly been outside at all and when i do go out its with gloves and a mask.

K-Can said on Thu, 9 Jul 2020 at 05:36...

I've been using poppers for a little over 1.5 years now and within the last 3-4 months, I've developed terrible congestion that follows after each session. Distributors had mentioned that product was waiting at the customs borders for months on end, so I was suspicious that maybe several batches were compromised.
It's a constant wet cough, mucus comes up but it never fully clears. Vics Vapor Rub does great and I find drinking Soda after a session to be the worst. Lots and lots of water.

West said on Tue, 4 Aug 2020 at 16:00...

Hey all, I got the same problem horrible cough with mucus horrid any guys know how to get rid of that and which poppers are the best? I will never buy from off licence they are the worst. Would be great if someone can suggest remedy and advice re poppers. Thank you and stay safe

popper boy said on Wed, 19 Aug 2020 at 22:40...

I find that jungle juice triple refined from poppersrus don't give me any cough.

Firm said on Sun, 6 Sep 2020 at 19:11...

I get the same problem, ten years of poppers use Iíve noticed the past few years Iím coughing a lot more. I think the quality has gone.

Pantyman said on Wed, 9 Sep 2020 at 08:21...

The cough and the shortness of breath really feels like it's something more serious. Last night I huffed for about 2 hours off and on of course. I was up all night coughing. Also the shortness of breath. At times it felt like I was panting . This morning when I got up I poured out all my poppers.having multiple days of side effects is not worth a couple hours of extreme pleasure.

Joey L said on Mon, 21 Sep 2020 at 20:51...

Omg! Exactly the same thing happens to me. After every popper session I am up all night coughing and canít breathe. Itís awful! I was hoping that someone would post some brands or kinds that donít cause this. Anyone have any experience with Double Dragon poppers? Curious if they are different in any way. Iíve dumped so many bottles as I gasped for air in the middle of the night. I wonít do them again unless I know for sure that wonít happen again!

Sir coffalot said on Fri, 25 Sep 2020 at 15:31...

Fellas, Iíve been doin poppers for 30 years, the cough is something that you learn to put up with, if you canít get off without a sniff of the stuff , youíll have to go easy and lay off it for a while and only use a fresh bottle when you do, this becomes very expensive, but very worth it , cos you and I know the feeling canít be better. You can have too much of a good thing!! and changing from pentyl to iso to alkyl and the real amyl only tricks the body and you donít cough at first but then your lungs get over sensitised and starts all over again with each chemical ,sorry thatís just how it is, either give it up completely for healths sake, or do as I do, once a fortnight with fresh bottle and learn to know when another sniff might get ya . Vics
is a great help , but that tight chest takes a week to ease , pack up the cigs too that helps. Itís a vicious circle Iíve learned, Iíve been coughing for 12 years!!, the wife hates it.

Same coughing and mucus problems after 25/yrs of use. Iíve been having a cough headache (goes away after a few minutes) for several weeks now. I threw away all my poppers a week ago.

Anonymous said on Sat, 9 Jan 2021 at 16:58...

Same coughing issue here. Mid 30s and have been using poppers for about 2 years now, nights are hell after a session. I've run through the list of options at pop Canada and literally everything causes it still. An immediate "after" shower helps a little bit but not really after an hour+ session of hits. Wake up with a sudden cough to a gross amount of phlegm, deep coughing to clear mucus, half breaths. Hot showers help clear it more than not, but the congestion typically persists across multiple days. Here's some brands I know for certain cause it. Amsterdam(normal and platinum), hot rush(normal and platinum) , bluesilver, blue boy.

If you're dealing with congestion and this bad cough, don't worry too much. It does pass before you know it, just focus on clearing mucus (maybe get an anti-congestant to help). Hot showers and deep coughs will make it better and prepare you for another session in no time.

Glad I found this thread , I was scared aŪ had covid . Same story here .
Just a doubt ... is there a way to still find amyl nitrate anywhere? Serious answers please . Cheers

BBF said on Fri, 29 Jan 2021 at 16:14...

Damn this sucks, guess I'll haft to lay off the poppers for a while then.... thanks for the info, hopefully someone can point us to better brands/sites to order off...

Gg said on Sun, 31 Jan 2021 at 02:12...

So had same issue, tried a new blue boy, always fine in the past, but after the first heavy night in a while had a cough for a week and a half, new bottle doesnít even say isobutyl, just 5% other... researched and tried something different when I found this thread, saw double scorpio was on a top poppers list 4/5, tried the honey, worked great, no cough! A little more expensive but so worth the extra 10. Also got amsterdam platinum but yet to try. Thought id share (though im in states, easier access) gl!

BenX said on Fri, 5 Mar 2021 at 18:57...

Hey,
Iím quite relieved to read that I am not alone with this problem. I use pps regularly since many years. When I was very young in the 2000īs I never had developed any coughing at all. My nostrils get red easily but this I can manage by being very careful. But Iíd say that for the last 7 or 8 years whatever brand I buy gives me that terrible cough that occurs like 3 hours after hitting. It will stay for several hours and is absolutely disgusting. Now I have to admit that I never paid attention to which nitrite is in the bottle. After checking my bottles now I realize that I only have Isopropyl bottles. I will definitely try to buy some others now to see if it changes anything.
One more thing which I find is extremely important is to use only fresh bottles. That means normally I use a small bottle only twice and donít keep it longer than 10 days in the freezer once itís opened. Obviously this becomes pricey

Poppers SK said on Tue, 30 Mar 2021 at 14:54...

Guys I been having this issues since I bought my poppers online. checked all are isopropyl nitrite made in Leeds. I get tickly cough 3 hours after sniffing. What I found helps me is Strepsils Honey Lemon Lozenges. Weird I know. I will definitely search and try isobutyl poppers and hope for difference.

Anonymous said on Wed, 7 Apr 2021 at 14:54...

Quick followup to my January 9th post outlining the coughing I've been experiencing more and more. I am also a heavy weed smoker (daily user for about 7-8 years), this may very well be a heavy contributor to the coughing fits following a poppers session. The day(s) after I seriously can't take a full hit from my valorizer without going into a violent coughing fit. Humidifiers and lozenges are definitely the way to go. Buy a cheap little desk humidifier and some halls off amazon and you'll be sitting pretty.

Greg said on Thu, 8 Apr 2021 at 12:58...

Been UK poppers user since 1995 (Yeah I'm getting on a bit now lol) Was alway great and never had any problems until some point in 2007 when the EU tried to ban them completely. The chemical make up of them was changed around that time (mostly to isopropyl here) Poppers since then have been nasty stuff that gives little actual nice effects but a whole load of chest problems and eye damage. People using only after 2007 have no idea how nice they used to be! All this has been caused by direct interference from misguided governments that have caused a dangerous problem where one didn't really exist before. A result of dogooders not liking others enjoying themselves without their control..
