Compulsive redosing

Compulsive redosing can be described as the experience of a powerful urge to continuously redose a psychoactive substance in an effort to increase or maintain the subjective effects which it induces.

This effect is considerably more likely to manifest itself when the user has a large supply of the given substance within their possession. It can be avoided by pre-weighing dosages, not keeping the remaining material within sight, exerting self control, and giving the compound to a trusted individual to keep until they deem it safe to return.

Compulsive redosing is most commonly associated with compounds which induce pleasurable effects such as cognitive euphoria, physical euphoria or anxiety suppression alongside of other effects which inhibit the clarity of one's decision-making processes such as disinhibition, motivation enhancement or ego inflation. These substances most commonly include opioids, entactogens, stimulants, and GABAergics. However, the effect can also be induced in a less consistent fashion under the influence of certain hallucinogenic compounds such as dissociatives, and cannabinoids.
