Common Questions and Answers about Illegal drugs you inject

drug

I am about to start my Rebif for the first time ever next week. I wanted to know if you liked the auto inject or the normal syringe, and why you like either one better than the other. And how does it make you feel after u take the injection? And for how long you feel ill afterwords, if u do at all. Thanks!!
So your doctor is only at risk if he takes that dirty needle, sticks it in his arm and draws his blood back into the syringe and then he must inject that blood back into his body, which is then at that point 'mixed,'as you say, with the infected blood,,,,,ONLY THEN he is at risk? Its hard to believe you're serious.But I know you are. btw I don't like if a health care worker doesn't wash their hands before they touch me. I don't allow it.
I am sorry...I put that you have lost 22 pounds now I see it is 24!!!!! You are doing GREAT!! I saw your other posting and I will leave you some feedback.
These include razors, toothbrushes, earrings and nail clippers • Make sure that clean needles are used for tattoos and body piercings • Avoid illegal drugs. If you do continue to inject illegal drugs, never share needles or syringes • If you are a medical professional, follow good practices for using and disposing of needles If you think that you have been exposed to the hepatitis B virus, it is important to visit your medical professional and get a hepatitis B blood test.

I realise buying her tablets when she does ask me isn't the best idea but until we get her into treatment that is going to work it is going to keep her away from the illegal drugs, ones she can inject. This is working on the idea of harm minimisation but only for the short term, if it continued long term it wouldn't be harm minimisation.
Good Evening Lovely Tramadol Warriors! So glad you are here. So glad you are choosing to join us. This is the place to be if you want off Tramadol. Lots of love, information and empathy here!
The ones I know that have it told me an in incident of having used a needle, to inject illegal drugs. Hemophiliacs used to catch it, before we cleaned the blood supply, in 1992. Also people who have to have Kidney Dialysis, more in the past, but it is an invasive procedure which happens frequently, so it is important for the hospital staff to very carefully sterilize that equipment as well. I worry like you do, especially after going to the dentist.
37 Levels of HIV infection seem to be low (less than 1%) amongst sex workers who do not inject drugs. However, for those who do inject drugs the risk is often significantly higher. According to a study carried out in three cities in the Netherlands, the HIV prevalence among female sex workers who injected drugs was 13.8%, while it was 1.5% amongst other female sex workers.38 In many areas, it also seems that male and transgender sex workers are more vulnerable to HIV than female sex workers.
I am happy that you found some relief, good for you. I hope you get a more flexible medical team soon. I heard that vaporizers(there are some digital ones) are better than the smoking and more effective than ingesting thc, but if it is working so well for you already, carry on!
That's why sharing IV drug paraphernalia puts you at high risk of hepatitis B. Your risk increases if you inject drugs frequently or also engage in high-risk sexual behavior. Although avoiding the use of injected drugs is the most reliable way to prevent infection, you may not choose to do this. If so, one way to reduce your risk is to participate in a needle exchange program in your community. These programs allow you to exchange used needles and syringes for sterile equipment.
Good lord how much did you drink? You are lucky to be alive. Next time you may not be so lucky. How often do you participate in this behavior?

You bet. crush and dissolve ocycontin pills and inject those? you bet. But that isn't the drugs fault or the drug manufacturers fault. People also die from taking percs, but not because of the narcotic, but because they overdose on acetaminophen and kill their livers. This is a tricky one to figure out, because the number of narcotic prescriptions given out has increased dramatically- it has gone up over 39% from 1999 to 2009. But have deaths from overdoses gone up the same?
html Healthcare giant GlaxoSmithKline has agreed to an unprecedented $3 billion settlement with the U.S. government over allegations that the company advertised drugs for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration and then used lavish gifts to convince doctors to prescribe the drugs. The multi-billion dollar settlement is the largest in U.S. history for alleged healthcare fraud, government officials said.
I think it is that people feel safe getting high off a technically legal drug. I always hated illegal drugs. I've tried them all, and always felt anxious becuase they were illegal. But popping a few vicodin I could rationalize because it was a prescription drug...even if it wasn't prescribed to me. Well that lead me to an oxy addiction...irony. Anyhow, I also think the pharamcutical industry has become somewhat corrupt and the over-prescription of drugs in general has become a problem.
I just had a regular blood test and my liver enzymes are all in perfect range am still waiting on my hep c results.If i had hep c by now would my liver enzymes be off since i would be in the acute phase????
thats my motto for now (no alcohol, illegal drugs of course). I get extremely thirsty on tx, so I have adapted well to drinking a gallon or two of water each day. Dont be afraid of everything, think of all the KoolAid and pop we have drunk over the years, they are loaded with artificial colors and flavors. We are still alive and kickin. Remember when they said coffee caused cancer etc? and there are always gonna be people "poo poo-ing" what we eat and drink.
While I do agree that too many people abuse prescription drugs, the fact is too many people abuse illegal drugs as well and look how successful the country has been trying to stop that. I have three chronic conditions, two of which I take narcotic pain meds for. Without them I would be unable to continue my 40+ hour a week job. I would be unable to raise my daughter and take an active role in her life.
I read your post. I can't help you with anything but to offer some hope and "less pain thoughts". Wherever you are, I'm sending a big gentle hug to ease your pain. God Bless you and Keep you.
Adding more drugs to your body will only in fact compound the problem to the point that you will either land yourself in the hospital fighting for your life, doing serious damage to your liver, heart, kidneys and other organs or losing all the weight you want, but regaining it after you stop taking the drugs, and begin to eat normally once again.
this time for 5 yrs.. and they only know of needles for illegal drugs.. like their father uses) Thank you again for your support.. sorry for just spewing some stuff out, I just really have no-one else to talk to about my illness (s) because my family is close minded and believes I can deal with my pain with some tylenol or motrin... anyone who takes pain medicine on a daily basis is an addict in their eyes.
we are the real deal...one wasn't enough of a challenge for us, was it? ;) My BEST to you. You know I am rooting for you and will be firmly planted in your corner. If you need me, you know where to find me.
I'm pretty sure I got my Hep C from blood transfusions that I had n 1988, not from IV drug use. At least I have that going for me, I don't use illegal drugs. It seems the most likely way to have gotten the virus, but I never learned about it until 2002 after a surgery that seemed to cause me to be really sick. After many blood tests, I learned I had hepc. I tried to blame it on that surgery because I was given cadaver bone but I was told the incubation period is longer than that.
Scott Holmberg said the link may not be quite as strong as the findings suggest, because some people who had used illegal drugs probably would not admit it, even on an anonymous questionnaire. And the researchers didn't rule out people who contracted hepatitis before getting their tattoo. WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A TATTOO PARLOR Holmberg, of the CDC's viral hepatitis division, recommends people only have tattoos or piercings done by trained professionals. "In the U.S.
Lot of confusion because the American approach, as far as I know, is more oriented to full sedation - IV drugs to put you down for several days - that sort of thing. Not much oral therapy involved I dont believe. And from this approach they had renal problems primarily. Along with some cardiac issues and incontinence after the procedure. I have seen some other articles by the doc that you mention - O'Neil, isnt it? - but to compare the US method to what you are describing is pretty hard.
600 test - ice if you have very little liver damage then perhaps you might want to wait and see what comes down the pike with the new drugs... The REGULAR dosage already gave me an autoimmune disease (Hashimoto Disease) and it killed my thyroid = so doubling it up could REALLY cause SEVERE problems.
The people I know personal who have tested positive for Hepatitis C have never injected themselves with drugs. You might say, "how would you know". Because these are people that never did any kind drugs. One past away at 83 years old after contracting hepatitis C years ago from kidney removal requiring numerous blood transfusions. Just like hundreds of thousands of people during the 40s, 50s, 60s,70s and 80s.
Where do you get the sh*t you're smokin'? 2 puffs and fallin' down, spinnin, blackin' out...no wonder you worry about chemicals...tht sounds like you were dusted! As to legal for life, that means I can grow and keep on hand a small amt for medicinal use. I have a whole lotta stress in my life and prefer a hit to a pill-AD, AR med, etc. A pill stays in the body and causes all sorts of problems and most pill popppers never think olf themselves as high.
No way to know for sure. I never did inject drugs or have a transfusion, so I know with certainty it came from another source. I can't say I got HCV from the dentist or not. It may have been from any number of sources, school-wide vaccination programs, gamma globulin shots, the dental surgeon who removed my wisdom teeth in a barebones practice where cleaning his equipment was the last thing on his mind.
