722833 tn?1230728731 I do not agree with any kind of drug use during pregnancy. I can tell you that my husbands mother smoked pot with both of her kids and there was never anything wrong. Being 27 and 30 you would think by now if the pot use had caused issues they would have arrisen by now. The only thing I can say is that pot now and pot 30 yrs ago could be completly different.
Avatar m tn If my wife had given me free room and board, let me be as mean to her as I wanted, and there were no consequences to my drug abuse, I would be dead today. You can ask around here, I am not a bad person or of low moral character, I am an addict. When people say you are enabling your man, it means you are part of his problem. He may blame you, and he may be partially right, because he wouldn't be able to afford as many drugs or have good enough health to get as high as he does without you.
Avatar m tn in fact, even during this unfortunate period of drug use, I was running 50 miles/week, going to the gym, and eating very healthy. I also have severe anxiety issues, and now that I've quit, I am very worried about all sorts of things. Is there any link between snorting this sort of drug and cancerous tumors? Any other long-term health issues I should be concerned about?
Avatar f tn Suboxone being a drug indicated for drug abuse acts in the opposite way against he drug you abused counteracting with it causing lot more mild and severe sideffects.Though patient compliance is very little but still it seems to have remarkable side effects when used during pregnancy. General side effects that are of higher risks to emerge may complicate pregnancy.

Avatar n tn Labor and Delivery ULTRAM ER should not be used in pregnant women prior to or during labor unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Safe use in pregnancy has not been established. Chronic use during pregnancy may lead to physical dependence and post-partum withdrawal symptoms in the newborn (see DRUG ABUSE AND ADDICTION). Tramadol has been shown to cross the placenta. The mean ratio of serum tramadol in the umbilical veins compared to maternal veins was 0.
Avatar f tn I want to know how to help drug abusers through a website? for example SO has addicted morphine after asurgery and is ashamed to go to a dr what to do ?
Avatar m tn phenobarbital has been around for a long long time is often considered the safest barbiturate as far as abuse...althought people still DO abuse it. if i remember right (i might be slightly off on this) peak concentration is 12 hours after the initial dose. this means it does no good to try to get high with it...the ride up and back down is so slow that you don't get a very good high at all.
Avatar n tn She most likely will have to have a cesarean to prevent the baby from contracting the STD. The one caring for her during her pregnancy should be able to evaluate the safety of these drugs in conjunction with her pregnancy and if they are unsafe they should offer alternatives. Unfortunately there are not a lot of studies done on many drugs in relation to pregnancy as pregnant women are not allowed to be "studied" in the event it could harm their baby.
Avatar f tn Also, if you test positive for any kind of drug during pregnancy guess what?? Your dr can and will report you to child services and your dr will continue to test you throughout your pregnancy. And when your baby is born even if you are negative babys meconium and the placenta will most likely still test positive. So you could possibly have your baby taken from you at the hospital. I don't think that's something anyone wants.

Avatar f tn I was friends with a woman who had a serious soboxone addiction and abused it along with subutex during her pregnancy and if you take it daily during your pregnancy your baby will be born with withdrawal and come out shaking for the first few weeks as hers did. PLEASE do not take during pregnancy if at all... :( It was so hard and sad to witness that on top of it she smoked ciggs and they do drug test when the babys born and will take the baby if any drug abuse is found. Good luck.
