    So I remember my instructor mentioning something that he referred to as a "B52 cocktail" awhile back, it's supposedly used as a chemical restraint. I can't quite remember what the mixture of meds was though, I think it was 5 mg Haldol, 2 mg of Ativan and 50 mg of diphenhydramine, but I'm not sure. I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of it or used it and if they remembered the "recipe"? Thanks

    Haven't heard of that before. Hopefully someone's got a good answer.

    50 mg Benadryl, 5 mg Haldol, 2 mg Lorazepam

    I prefer Turkocet when I go to the hospital. Turkey Sammich + Percocet.

    I feel like rye would compliment the percocet a little bit better

    I'm hungry now. I want some Jimmy Johns, asap.
  9. Hoping that's P.O.

    P.S. I'll take a #9 from Jimmy Johns, no lettuce and add peppers please.
