“A Sweet Victory”; xref: Why do heroin (opiate) users crave sugar?

03-11-2002 23:09
what i found…
Heroin addicts have shown flat glucose tolerance curves, with an exaggerated and delayed insulin response following oral glucose loading. Heroin addicts have a markedly reduced acute insulin response to glucose administered intravenously and have low potassium values.

apparently, opiates can induce an almost hypoglycemic state, and thus a craving for sugars and food in general.

I am not sure either, but they definately do. I remember reading instructions for fentanyl use in animals, and it said that due to the “euphoria”, the dogs may start eating excessively (and to limit food accordingly). The reason why sweet food in particular, im am not sure….

Good question. I haven’t really noticed this that much, sometimes when my opiates hit I get hungry for any food but after they take full effect I loose my appetite immediatley.

Once opiates wear off i notice i am repulsed by 2 things.
1.Loud noises, opiates make my ears sensitive.
2. Anything sweet, it just tastes godawful for some reason.
Maybe im different?

how long have you been on them silver? i was a heavy user for more than 1 year. everyday i was doing a good amount of oc’s.
maybe its just me. i have met other people that do a bag of heroin and light a cig and go straight for the ice cream. i dont know how people drink alcohol and do opiates. i never crave alcohol while doing them.

I notice I crave sugar while on opiates. It is similar to getting a food craving while having the munchies but more intense.

i suffer from the same side effect u mentioned in NUMBER 1 in your post SILVERFUCKED..its is quite annoying as well…NUMBER 2, i dont get that effect..
i NEVER craved sugar while taking OXY either, i had an appetite for any type of foods, but with HEROIN, all i really have a taste to eat is pure JUNK FOOD, like cookies, ice cream, candy bars etc etc…i would say it would be rough keeping a good diet going while hitting a heavy smack habit..

I usually crave sugar after coming down from a good oc high. The one thing i crave bad when railing a big line is coffee in the morning and a cold beer at night. They just go together so well. Maybe its just me… Other people i know dont want anything to do with alchohol or eating.

FUCK,

========NH:
PLEASE READ ‘CRUCIFY’ FOR ‘FUCK’ THROUGHOUT.
========NULL HYPOTHESIS//

there is no way i would drink ALCOHOL after taking OXY or any OPIATE..OPIATES totally satisfy my druggy urges to where i dont even think or need to take anything else, especially ALCOHOL..i would think ALCOHOL would ruin a good OPIATE high..
ALCOHOL is fucking nasty and should only be consumed if you take regular drug tests, or if you have absolutely NOTHING else to take!!

I eat starburst all day.

I love candy like that. Mambas, starburst, tootsie roll frooties. Even a nice hit from the squeeze pop bottle. Love it.

Sugar is a huge part of my high. I crave it intensely.

I personally don’t crave sugar especially, more just food in general. I can wake up and be completely not hungry, do a shot and immediately need something to eat.
