Benzodiazepines (‘benzos’) are the most reliable pre- medicating drugs. First marketed in the 1960s, diazepam (valium) was so effective as a hypnotic and anti-anxiety drug that it led to a reduction in the use, and eventual removal, of the lethal ‘sleeping tablet’ barbiturate known as Nembutal.
There are now hundreds of benzos, marketed as ‘minor tranquillisers’ and sleeping pills. Many are prescription- controlled. The development of more and more variations of benzos has led to the marketing of more and more off-licence products: these can be readily sourced on the internet.
Many of the lethal drugs described in the eHandbook end life by interfering with cardiac function. These ‘cardiac-switch’ drugs cause ischaemic hypoxia. However, ischaemic hypoxia can be far from peaceful. To make the process peaceful, sleep- promoting benzodiazepine drugs are often needed.
The medium to short-acting benzo, oxazepam (serapax) is effective way of addressing this problem. 10 x 30mg tablets of serapax, broken up in water and then drunk at the same time as a lethal cardiac drug like chloroquine or propoxyphine, provides a peaceful death. Fast-acting, midazolam or the slower-acting diazepam can also be used. All of these benzos are prescription- controlled and can, therefore, be difficult to source. If this is the case, the off-licence benzo of diclazepam (chlorodiazepam) is an effective alternative.
Process: Dissolving 1gm of diclazepam in 20ml of propylene glycol and them drink with a measure of gin. DO NOT then delay or forget to follow-up with the cardiotoxic drug.
