MYTH 1: You'll Be Laughing Like a Hyena.

Although nitrous oxide is also called “laughing gas,” it won't make you laugh uncontrollably… Nitrous oxide works to reduce your anxiety and put you at ease, but it won't make you lose control of yourself.

Of course you can. It doesn't take over, it just makes you giggle. Sometimes uncontrollably… I had this when I broke my collar bone and the paramedic who took me to A&E (I crashed my mountain bike into a tree in the local bike park) gave me laughing gas (aka nitrous oxide, N2O).

Upon waking up (in my experience) you don't feel completely out of control of yourself. It's more like you just took a ton of Benadryl and less like you're drunk with no inhibitions. I think the wildest thing I did on the ride home was send my brother a Snapchat with the caption "I lived bitch" and that's not really out of character for me anyway.

The euphoric effects of laughing gas and any disorientation you may feel will wear off within a few minutes after you stop breathing nitrous oxide and start breathing regular air (or oxygen only). You may experience deficits in motor skills and attention for about 15 minutes after you stop inhaling laughing gas, which can interfere with your driving ability if you leave immediately following your appointment.[ 5 ]

You can easily make nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, in the lab or at home.However, there are reasons why you might want to forgo the preparation unless you have chem lab experience.

People may experience periodic bouts of inappropriate, uncontrollable laughter due to conditions like pseudobulbar affect (PBA), bipolar disorder, dementia, stroke, or other neurological conditions. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can help some people find relief from recurring bouts of laughter.
