Summary

The document presents a collection of articles about inhalant abuse. Article 1 presents findings on the psychophysiological effects related to the use of amyl or butyl nitrate as a "recreational drug." Article 2 suggests a strong association between chronic sniffing of the solvent toulene and irreversible brain damage. Article 3 warns about the possible effects of inhaling typewriter correction fluid. Article 4 further discusses the abuse of butyl nitrate and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and mentions possible psychophysiological effects, number and age of users, frequency of use, variations in nitrous oxide formats, long-term effects, and government attempts to control inhalant abuse. Article 5 looks at research done on inhalant abuse, occurrences of volatile substances in common products, user motivation, administration and experience, pharmacology and toxicology, tolerance and dependence, and recommendations regarding the helping of abusers. The document concludes with an annotated bibliography of 30 books and articles about general inhalant abuse, and the abuse of nitrous oxide, amyl and butyl nitrate, and solvents. (LH)
