Volatile alkyl nitrites have been used during the past decades for “recreational purposes,” and for intensifying sexual experience. Their use has been associated with methemoglobinemia and hemolysis. We report three patients who presented over the past year with acute hemolysis after inhalation of butyl nitrite, two of them had glucose‐6‐phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. 
A case of hemolysis and methemoglobinemia following amyl nitrite use in an individual with G6PD deficiency
TLDR
A 34-year-old man presented feeling generally unwell with dark urine 3 days after inhaling amyl nitrite and was subsequently confirmed as having glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, which had originally been diagnosed in childhood. Expand
Drug-Induced Respiratory Disease in Cardiac Patients
TLDR
It is difficult to cover this topic without mentioning the features of respiratory reactions occasioned by abused substances, herbals, radiation therapy, overdoses of drugs, and procedures when these overlap with the features or are in the differentials list for drug-induced respiratory disease.

Prevalence of G6PD deficiency versus oxidizing drugs: a survey in the tertiary care hospital -
TLDR
While applying oxidizing drugs in a person of Harijan community (prevalence 7 out of total 26, i.e. 27%), extra caution is required, esp. if a person otherwise vulnerable (e.g. alcoholic). Expand

TLDR
A further theme of interest for mental health service workers is the intentional practice of sex under the influence of psychoactive substances, known as “chemsex,” and acted mainly among homosexual males. Expand
Nitrite Inhalant Abuse in Antisocial Youth: Prevalence, Patterns, and Predictors
TLDR
Antisocial adolescent nitrite users are at substantially elevated risk for serious functional impairments given their high rates of lifetime head injury, comparatively more varied and intensive levels of involvement with psychoactive drugs, and symptom reports suggestive of psychiatric and cognitive dysfunction.
