Consult dr. 1st!: Most experience has shown a tendancy for abuse of amonia inhalants . It's the treatment of choice for fainting prevention & treatment. It produces near-instantaneous relief for lightheadedness. This is the only pproved use for these inhalants, ammonia inhalants merely treat the symptom - do nothing for the underlying cause of the fainting. I don't recommend use without advice of ur dr!
