| | Nicotine patch & 'poppers'?
We all know what the nicotine patch is so I don't feel I need to go into detail regarding that.
"Poppers", are an inhalent (amyl nitrate/nitrite) that has been used for decades (at least since the 60's) that are used as a sexual stimulant (to increase pleasure, etc) during sexual encounters (they are more popular with gay/bi men). They do raise the blood pressure temporarily (maybe a few minutes max with the big 'rush' being the first 30-60 seconds) and then decreases back to normal.
My question is is it safe to use poppers while on the nicotine patch? Poppers and viagra (and drugs alike) are a BIG no no as you can have a heart attack with the combination of both 'drugs', however I have yet to find any information online regarding popper use and the nicotine patch.
I have asked my doctor, heck he didn't even know what poppers were until I explained to him what they were. He said he didn't know.
Anyways if anyone could answer who knows what they are talking about I would appreciate it. As I have exhausted my search and don't know where else to turn too.
