When you snort something, more of the drug gets into your blood stream at a higher rate. A caffeine pill is 200 mg of caffeine when swallowed, meaning you get 200 mg of caffeine in your blood stream

when consuming over 3-4 hours (as it says on the box). When you snort the pill, you'll get the 200 right away instead of gradually. Although this probably won't hurt you, consuming more than 500-600

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Any drug which is not meant to be for the nasal route will lead to local irritation and injuries to nasal mucosa and lead to discomfort and complications.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
