Avatar n tn Well just 2 months later I find out I am pregnant again, put on progesterone pills and told not to do house work or anything like that (also quit smoking the day I found out I was pregnant). Well I am no 30 weeks along, found out I have gull stones and gestational diabetes and have put on 55 pounds. I hate myself everytime I look in a mirror and feel so sad all the time. I guess in my head something is going to happen where I dont have my baby.
Avatar f tn My heart started beating really fast and this is normal for someonw who suffers anxiety. 3. Tingling sensation of my legs 4. Depression. Nicotine has an anti anxiety and depression effect but since you stopped your body is now reacting. Depression was probably the toughest one i encountered. The feeling of emptiness, numbness inside, no emotions, no happiness just all sadness. I cried so many times and got mad at god for making me go through what I was going through.
Avatar m tn Just stop smoking weed......period. Whether it causes issues or not none of finding out.
Avatar f tn i have suffered depression when i have quit smoking. i started smoking again. i am now on meds for depression so i can quit smoking again. i do think smoking masks emotions. there is a good site to get on about smoking cessation. it is on about .com. there is really good support there.
228936 tn?1249097848 Yes, smoking most definitly causes more anxiety if you are prone to that disorder which usually goes hand in hand with depression. I stopped smoking 7wks ago and began with the losenge, but couldn't tolerate the side effects so stopped after 5 days and just went cold turkey. Your still ingesting nicotine so eventually would have to go through w/d from the losenge too so I figured just get it over with.

Avatar f tn 6098-101. Heavy smoking and liver. Smoking causes a variety of adverse effects on organs that have no direct contact with the smoke itself such as the liver. It induces three major adverse effects on the liver: direct or indirect toxic effects, immunological effects and oncogenic effects. Smoking yields chemical substances with cytotoxic potential which increase necro-inflammation and fibrosis.

Avatar n tn I also know someone who only smoked 'black' but when his girlfriend stopped him seeing his son he was duped into smoking heroin by being told it was a new stronger black he believed this because he knew about and had tried 'skunk' so had no reason to doubt what he was being told. He ended up with a massive heroin habit for over 8 years, lost his job, home and all his belongings. Often people seem to use hard drugs to escape their troubles and stress.
Avatar f tn First of all, smoking anything during pregnancy deprives the fetus of oxygen. Just as smoking tobacco is discouraged in pregnant women, so is smoking marijuana. Smoking any type of substance interferes with the fetus's blood supply. This can mean the fetus doesn't get enough oxygen, and s/he may be born smaller in both weight and length.
Avatar n tn those 3 years of a constant high may have did it though i forgot to mention i have pleurisy (inflammation of the chest wall) started back in November, and about a month before that i developed walking pneumonia. figures the pain in my ribs returns the day after i quit smoking. its hard for me to get out of bed, let alone do housework. i need to exercise but i just can't right now. i'd take the drugs, but i have a low tolerance to them and i don't need anything else screwing with my appetite.

618210 tn?1223930565 What you took most certainly would not have been 100% ecstasy. Dealers mix and match that sh!t up with cocaine and pcp and other subtances. Ecstasy causes serotonin levels to drop below normal, which impairs the brain's ability to learn, retain information and regulate mood. It appears that Ecstasy causes serotonin receptors, which allow the serotonin to fire in the brain, to shrink from overuse.

Avatar n tn Fischer and colleagues suggested that medical cannabis may be especially beneficial for patients on methadone maintenance, since methadone can cause some of the same side effects as interferon (e.g., fatigue, bone aches, depression). They added that, while further research is underway, they “advocate that in the interim existing barriers to cannabis use are removed for drug users undergoing HCV treatment.

Avatar m tn Other causes are diabetes, autonomic nervous system problem, excessive alcohol ingestion or tobacco smoking etc. You may need to consult your doctor to see which amongst these causes are responsible for your problem. The commonly prescribed drug by the doctors is sildenafil, which causes erections to be stronger and long lasting. It is not safe to take this drug without doctor’s advice. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn The way I see it is yes marijuana can cause a few (very few from what I've read) issues when the child is older. But the lack of food consumption causes premature birth and other issues and the depression can cause depression in young children (I've seen it in my own family, it happens). Just think about all the other medications we allow into our bodies that can cause birth defects or neurological challenges for the baby vs. smoking pot which has very very few side effects for the baby.
Avatar f tn I smoked through both my other pregnancies of 40 fags a day, my little boy is fine, however my 12 year old daughter is a severe asthmatic, i no my smoking is so much to do with that. I am currently smoking between 10 to 15 rolls ups a day. I s there anyone out there who can give me some advice or share their experiences with me if similar.
309783 tn?1271961829 I wonder to what extent the occurance of depression after taking roaccutane is related to relapse, that is that the acne causes the depression. Or does it occur to the same extent in those who's treatment resulted in remission? I would be interested to hear from those who's treatment cured their acne but still developed depression, what did your negative thoughts center around? i feel depressed because the acne is back.
