Avatar n tn I recently (and regretfully) had begun experimenting with using different over-the-counter medications recreationally, first abusing DXM in the form of cold medicines, and then DPH in the form of generic allergy medicine. Last week I had hit a particularly dangerous spell of abuse, consuming DPH four nights in a row in the dosages of 300mg, 500mg, 700mg, and 600mg.
Avatar n tn He lives with his mom and dad, but he has nothing, no friends, his kids didn't even call him on his birthday. I was the only thing he had left from all the drug abuse. He didn't want me either. I can't figure out why he came over, he left so angry in March. He told me when he left, he would come by again. I dont' understand? He doesn't want help or this relationship. What does he want with me?
1626629 tn?1329425929 Any addiction specialist worth their salt will first try something called a BI ( brief intervention) which is basically a doctor telling thier addicted patient about the medical ramifications of sustained/prolonged drug abuse. For many addicts this is enough. Some doctors/therapists/councellors may also try a technique called MI ( motivational interviewing) which is when the addict is asked to list thier goals/dreams/aspirations and identify how drug abuse has prevented thier realisation.
Avatar n tn There are 3 terms that often get erroneously used interchangably, when, in reality, while there are similarities, they are vastly different. "Tolerance" is defined by a person's body becoming used to a med, needing a higher dose to maintain the same effect. "Physical Dependence" is where a person has developed a physical "need" for the med, and without it will experience physical, and often emotional withdrawal.
Avatar f tn So today was my third day going down to the "substance abuse treatment center" to try to get help. Today was supposed to be my "doctor appointment." (There will be a lot of quotes here because what they're called "doctors" and "treatment" is actually just a bunch of BS.) The doctor asked me first thing if I thought I needed psychiatric meds...
Avatar m tn self-mutilation, suicide threats, death threats, physical altercations, destruction of personal/ public property, drug abuse - marijuana (daily), cocaine (monthly), spending sprees (very excessive), et cetera. All of his previous therapists have told him that his case of the disease is very extreme and have since refused him treatment.
Avatar f tn sorry i was wrong, it was not a plane crash, but he is died, here is the story DJ AM was found dead in his New York City apartment on Friday (August 28), his rep confirmed to MTV News. He was 36. "Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein was found deceased this afternoon in his New York City apartment," reads a statement from AM's rep. "The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. Out of respect for his family and loved ones, please respect their privacy at this time.
Avatar n tn I got to a point where I just couldn't live that way anymore. For me, drug abuse was always tied in to my eating disorder; when I stopped using drugs I realized my eating disorder was worse and the two were connected. I hated my life. How bad was it? I think I was worse than some and not as bad as others. It doesn't really matter; it's how you feel inside and how your life is affected by the eating disorder and mine was trashed.
237500 tn?1189759431 I would agree that 5-10 would be if you are only using it for w/d''s but the program itself (which I would consider being used correctly) can last much longer. In reading on suboxone.com the induction itself takes 2-7 days, then there's still the stabilization and maintenance phases.
Avatar n tn Found these quotes at opioids.com - looks like they have about the same potency. I hope this helps: "Oxycodone (14-hydroxy-7,8-dihydrocodeinone) is a strong opioid agonist that is available alone or in combination with mild analgesics. It is suitable for oral administration due to high bioavailability (60%), and may also be given intramuscularly, intravenously, subcutaneously, and rectally; it is not recommended for spinal administration.
Avatar f tn It's a new effort that some say could save lives; in the past year, 2,500 people died in Florida from prescription pill abuse. The law will impact all pain specialists and their patients. Anyone who walks into a pain management clinic will notice some changes starting Friday, even if your clinic is legitimate. But the law is really aimed at getting rid of the ones that aren't. Just getting out of the car can be excruciating for J.J. Uhlenhake.
329950 tn?1194801117 Ritalin is a therapy drug and it works for those who need it, the problem is it works for those who dont - it is after all a stimulant and abuse of the drug will lead to restriction on it for people who do need it in the same way valium, oxycodone and LSD are all restricted or banned from us now due to abuse.
Avatar n tn >My FEAR is that without the ESCAPE FROM REALITY, that >once real reality sets in, I wont be able to deal with >it. I had exactly the same fear. I don't know about yours, but my fear was very well founded. Time after time I'd get clean only to find that I was simply unable to deal with life w/o my hydrocodone. So, time after time I relapsed, even after clean runs of 30-60 days. None of those relapses was a willing or intentional return to the insanity of active addiction.
4522800 tn?1470329434 Oh no!! Any way she gave up the Booze about 5 years ago after many DUI and having to go to Drug Court and lots of meeting and Jail. She thinks she has this addiction licked and is in denial about the Drug use.. Well what I want to share is that she called me and wanted to come up and get some tree bark and go to the river. I just told her I am not up to it. She wanted my Hub to meet her Boyfriend..Well as far as my Hub goes he wants me to have nothing to do with her at all and I do stay away..
Avatar n tn taking more than directed; feeling like you need the drug to function; finding yourself thinking about the drug; taking the drug because you like the way it feels. The easiest way to find out if you are addicted is to stop for a few days. If you feel sick (flu-like symptoms) then your body is dependent on the drug. If so, taper down by taking a bit less each day until you take no more. With your small amount (1 per day) you probably won't experience much in the way of withdrawal.
Avatar f tn After the jail situation this summer i am having a hard time trusting her to make the right desicion. I BELIEVE STRONGLY THAT ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE OR ADDICTION CAUSES PEOPLE TO MAKE IRRATIONAL DESICIONS. I believe that people can change for the good after they get out of these situations. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe you are all right and it is me that has the issues. I was in a relationship before witha man that had 5 children.
Avatar f tn the body will adapt to almost anything and building extra receptors is the way it adapts to drug abuse..those receptors crave long after detox/hence the mental part of addiction/faigue, depression and lack of motivation/..eventually they "go to sleep/like a cancer in remission/" after detox but they never go "away" when they "sleep" we do not crave or feel so yucky/doomy/but this is why when u use again ur tolernece in quickly right back to where it was pre-detox.
Avatar f tn I want to hear from people who went through the hell of detox, and are getting better. What does it FEEL like for you, and what do people mean when they say they feel like relapsing. It is hard for me to understand what a person who was "just" addicted to pills feels, while going through the same thing as me. I put the word "just" in quotes, because I don't mean that being addicted to pills is an easy thing if that's your only problem.
544292 tn?1268886268 The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose). Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain.
Avatar n tn The exceptions are mental illness and drug abuse. Now, prescription meds are a whole other matter. Pain killers and meds taken that have sedating effects whould not have sway on the court unless there is documentation that you have ben neglectful in his care. Parents do not lose custody because they have painful conditions! They also DO NOT lose custody or partial custody becasue they are disabled or a chronically ill. Do not stop taking meds that give you relief or help you function!!!!!
Avatar n tn I understand your concern for your sister. The best thing to do in a situation of suspected drug abuse is to let the proper authorities know, in your case, her physician. Proper testing can eliminate any question of abuse. You mentioned that your sister has MVP (Mitral valve prolapse). I am assuming that this is a proven prolapse and not MVPS (mitral valve prolapse syndrome). If that is the case then, the MVP can cause the characteristic darkening of the hands, feet, and lips.
Avatar m tn Not wanting to take medications as prescribed can occur partially because of their side effects (increased appetite as mentioned is common as are cognitive side effects which can cause confusion as well as sedation but each person responds differently to each medication) as well as not understanding their need. Substance abuse or alcohol abuse as a form of self medication can occur with some people and a dual recovery group is what is needed.
1998071 tn?1327524983 how long did your addiction to the other narcotic pain pills last? members here have experience with this drug, whereas i do not. hopefully some of them will be around shortly to help you with this.
Avatar n tn Do you yourself have problems with drug abuse? Or do you have the perfect life which allows you to come here and vent at people that dont come from the voice of reason like yourself.

The way you judge everybody. Just why ARE you here?

1453183 tn?1287852619 ) and by National Institute of Drug Abuse Grant DA-R2911315 (T.W.). But actually I just noticed that you are now referring to a study done by Dr. B in 2008 and not his 1999 study. Gets confusing doesn't it? Here is the link to his 1999 study. http://neoreviews.aappublications.org/content/pediatrics/104/2/e20.full. And the conclusions are pretty easy to follow in the 1999 study simply because the numbers involved are so small that it doesn't take much math to figure them out.
Avatar n tn Are you Challenging my 23 years of work in this field,if so be prepeared for a battle neither of us will win.
