What Is Quaaludes
Methaqualone or Quaaludes (methaqualone) are synthetic, barbiturate-like, drugs that depress the central nervous system. They are also known by the slang term “ludes”. Quaaludes are fast acting and can take full effect in as little as 30 minutes. An average person can feel sedated from Quaaludes for up to 8 hours.
When quaaludes were first introduced in the 1950’s, it was thought that they were a safe alternative to more dangerous habit forming barbiturates. By 1972, Quaaludes were among the most prescribed sedatives in United States. Later, it was determined that people could become addicted to Quaaludes the same way they could to barbiturate drugs.
People take Quaaludes to experience deep relaxation and a feeling of euphoria, but quaaludes can also cause serious problems. A sudden drop in blood pressure, seizures, vomiting and confusion are some of the many side effects of this deadly drug.
Uses of quaaludes
In 1972, Quaaludes were one of the most frequently prescribed sedatives in United States.
In prescribed doses, Quaaludes promotes relaxation, sleepiness and sometimes a feeling of euphoria. It causes a drop in blood pressure and slows the pulse rate. These properties are the reason why it was initially thought to be a useful sedative and anxiolytic.
It became a recreational drug due to its euphoric effect. Quaaludes were a popular drug of abuse during much of the 1970s, even though both the United States and Britain tightened control around their use and dispensing.
Quaalude side effects
Common side effects of Quaaludes include:
tingling sensation in arms and legs
reduced heart rate
slowed breathing (respiration).
