Just received my bottle of 0.1% 200 mcg Semax nasal spray.

Looking around online before I bought Semax I THOUGHT I knew what I was doing. Looked at how it works for the most part, peoples (awesome, one negative) experiences, and what the recommended dose to take is. 

Well I must have either misread some information as being the recommended dose or I'm just an idiot for taking the highest recommended dose (at approx 1mg, 2 sprays in each nostril) (lowest effective dose at .25 mg) KNOWING damn well that I'm highly sensitive to anything I put into my body. 

So the story goes: Yay I got my Semax in the mail! *hastily opens package and removes all wrapping* Alrighty I hope this stuff works *proceeds to squirt the liquid in nose and snorts it up* *puts package back in original package, and in the fridge* I guess I'll go sit on the chair over there.

I kid you not, 10 minutes later while I'm sitting there I get this INSANE rush of energy like my body and mind were both sped up x10. I then began to panic and lose my ability to sit still AT ALL. I was freaking the hell out with all this energy inside me and I was also getting very nauseous. So I said to myself In such crystal clarity: Fuck this! I'm going for a jog! Threw my jacket on and some shoes and I was out the door within less than a minute. As soon I stepped out the door I immediately went into a mad dash down the side walk, sprinting so fast almost losing my shoes and at the same time I was saying to myself *Holy shit man what the hell IS this stuff, I thought I did my research! but why do i also feel so great? woah, my thoughts are clear, I don't think I'll be able to stop running, I could just run forever right? I hope this calms me down*

When I got back from my super quick run around the block I got back inside and proceeded to pace around the house very quickly taking super deep breaths and doing pushups. I was STILL freaking out, so the more I thought about me freaking out the more I freaked. I took L-theanine, L-tyrosine, made some scrambled eggs because i was hungry and nauseous, and even also made a cup of chamomile tea (with 2 bags). While waiting for everything to finish I was looking on my phone for all kinds of ways to calm down. My heart was POUNDING. (I would like to equate this feeling to what it's like to play in front of an audience or publicly speak in front of an audience and start feeling sick and your heart rate increases. This feeling though was magnified, as if I had no time to prepare for playing or speaking in front of an audience and was just thrown on stage.) The feeling was constant from ~3:10 to 4 o clock when my girlfriend was going into work. 

I spent a good amount of time in the bath room next to the toilet because i couldn't calm down and just wanted to puke my brains out to relieve myself. My girlfriend talked me out of that and handed me a cold cloth to put on my head and that's what made me calm down. Thanks to her I made it through without puking and eventually calmed myself down. It is now 4:37 and I feel in perfect harmony with my self. Crystal clear thinking, no panic, no nervousness, no ill feeling, just Pure harmony. 

 

So what I get from this experience is that:

1. I'm and idiot for NOT taking a really small dose and see how I reacted to it. a.k.a. precaution.

2. I gave my girlfriend a scare because she thought I was going tp pass out and I never want her to be worried about me. (again I thought I knew what I was doing and it really made me sad to see her worried about my stupid mistake)

3.I'm reallllllly enjoying the effects of Semax.

4. scary but kind of silly to look back at a dumb mistake

5. I got my cardio in for the day, and had lunch.

6. Mistakes do happen to everyone, LEARN from them. 

 

If you've made it this far, thank you for reading and I hope you take precaution and don't be an idiot like me when taking Semax so that you don't end up having a panic attack in the middle of the day right before you have to go into work.

 

Your idiot -Ace

Update: It's now 8:40 PM and I just got back from work. 

Work was pretty intense starting out (at 5 P.M.) and I was still a little bit on edge(after i started getting dressed for work after writing my original post I felt a bit of what I felt earlier but, a lot less of an effect). My friends' noticed that I was little more hyper than normal. I couldn't stand still, I always had to be doing something. Every time I stood still my mind was already on the next mission and if it didn't have a mission it would make my body have to just move. So I walked around A LOT, and my mind was straight to the point with everything being asked of me by others. I was coming to conclusions faster when asked a question. (I stutter quite often but, nothing extreme) Which was wonderful for a change. I'll mention that my emotions weren't there at all and I felt really out of touch with my emotions.

One thing I must say, one of my friends (who's done quite a lot of psychedelics) noticed that my eyes were super dilated and said to me that *I must be taking in a lot right now* Which was absolutely right.

My appetite was still completely shattered and every time i thought about eating I'd feel sick to my stomach. It wasn't until about 8:20 P.M. that I noticed that whatever "zone" that i was in had come down significantly and I actually started to feel hungry and I had a nice meal! :laugh:  My mind was completely at ease and I was laughing, smiling, and cracking jokes with everyone by the nights' end.

I feel a whole lot better now, though I've lost that complete harmony feeling(no emotions but, no emotions to hinder my thinking) that I had earlier, I feel great to be alive today.

Very interesting. Thanks for the report, I'm now looking into Semax - not because of your huge dose, I just hadn't heard of it prior to this post.

 

Any other users care to report?

So just to clarify, you only took ~ 1 mg, right? Two squirts per nostril? 

 

I just received my .1% Semax, will be posting on it soon, but so far haven't gone above ~400 mcg, i.e. 1 squirt per nostril. 

 

How has Semax been treating you at lower doses?

Yes I only took about 1mg of Semax. 2 squirts per nostril. It's the bottle from ceretropics(think that's what it is called). I honestly haven't had the chance to try it in lower dosages. Been meaning to try here on Monday to see how I react. My girlfriend came down with the flu and I ended up getting a really bad case of sinusitis and then contracted pink eye for like 2 weeks. So I'm finally feeling my self again and am ready to update on lower dosages and how I feel on Monday.

How has 1 spray per nostril been making you feel at 0.1% Semax? Any adverse effects noticed? Would love to hear feedback and get a conversation started on this. (Since there are hardly any out there on longecity)

It's been treating me well. Honestly not noticing too much - I've gone up to two squirts per nostril at once, roughly .8-1 mg. Increase in focus, clear-headedness, maybe an uptick in energy, possible synergy with stimulants (just caffeine from coffee or tea), slight increase in visuals, colors a bit brighter, more contrasted, visual scenes striking me as more pleasant. 

 

I'm going to have to give it more time before I'm able to really nail down it's subjective effects. Also trying out hydrafinil and tianeptine - I've done some combining of them but am very wary trying new substances, I'm taking it slow.

 

I'll continue to update on this thread, glad you're feeling better, looking forward to hearing more about your experience.

Correct me if I'm wrong---but aren't you supposed to just spray the Semax into your nostrils and let it absorb there... not snort it into your lungs?

Indeed you are supposed to, but with a full spray some can leak out. there seems to be a thin line between breathing in just enough to prevent leakage and breathing in too much, having some go down the back of the throat. Don't think any would make it to the lungs however.
