Take 3 x 10mg metoclopramide tablets and wait 40 minutes before drinking the dissolved amitriptyline. Follow this with 10 or more benzodiazepine sleeping tablets, then finish by tak- ing alcohol to potentiate the action of the drug, and take away the bitter drug after-taste.
Note: Although amitriptyline is a strong sedative and sleep will quickly result, it is common to include a benzodiazepine sleep- ing drug after taking the amitriptyline and before the whisky. Serapax (oxazepam) is useful. A full card (20 x 30mg tablets) can be crushed, mixed with water and taken as a drink after the amitriptyline.
Once the drink has been consumed, settle back and take the alcohol. The drug cocktail will work quickly inducing sleep in about 15 minutes. Sleep will then deepen as consciousness is lost and the cardiotoxic properties of the drug bring about death. This period can vary and it is a good idea to have pre- pared a situation where there is no likelihood of disturbance for a period of up to 24 hours. (Fig 12.2 & Video)
The penalty for importing Amitriptyline into Australia ranges from 12 months to five years imprisonment and a fine of up to $720,000 depending on whether there is a risk of harm if used.
In the UK, Amitriptyline is not listed as a controlled drug and can be legally imported in no more than a 3 month’s supply, as long as it is for personal use only.
