While it is unfortunately true that some people intentionally inhale the fumes of poppers (solvent cleaners), this is not a recommended practice and we here at Poppers4U only sell poppers for the legitimate and legal use as cleaners. Sometimes, when using solvent cleaners in a poorly ventilated space, accidental exposure can occur and you may experience side effects.
There are risks associated with the inhalation of poppers but these risks are quite minor when compared to the risks associated with using other common “party” or “street” drugs. For example, there is no evidence of long-term psychological or physical damage resulting from popper inhalation.
The most common side effect, and it doesn’t happen to everyone, is a roaring headache. In our experience, this is a consequence of using old poppers or poppers that have been counterfeited and are fake. The cheaper the popper the more likely it is to be fake
If you are going to use poppers against our recommended use, then keep in mind these safety considerations:
- If the liquid contacts the skin wash it off immediately. Poppers will irritate the skin if left in contact.
- Poppers are highly flammable so use extreme caution around cigarettes, lighters, or other sources of ignition. The best practice is to keep cigarettes and such separate completely from your poppers
- NEVER drink or swallow poppers for any reason. If accidentally ingested contact your local poison control center.
- It is very dangerous to mix poppers and drugs for erectile dysfunction such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra.
- When using poppers it is possible that you will experience sweating, a rapid pulse, hand tremors, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, and, in rare cases, seizures. While potentially troubling, these effects are temporary and will stop once you remove the poppers.
- In extremely rare cases, all occurring in Europe, poppers have been associated with visual impairments, all of which were temporary. This is a danger of using poppers not manufactured in the United States as the approved formulas in other countries can vary greatly and so do the risks associated with use.
