1801781 tn?1461629469 NM leads in drug overdose deaths and not substance abuse. They (the CDC) estimated 4 per100K people die every year from prescription drug overdose and I'm sure that's accurate...it would be about 80 people a year and that doesn't include alcohol and illegal drugs, of course.
Avatar f tn m still trying to figure out. That will tell us something one way or another. I already know that illegal drug use per capita has declined from the 70's and 80's but I don't know if it has remained static percentage wise per capita from 1999 to 2009 or gone up or down. Generally the percentage of illicit drug users per capita remains within a couple percentage points up or down from year to year. And these kinds of statisics are hardly very accurate.
Avatar n tn No- it is illegal. Doctors in most states are required by law to check the drug database to ensure a patient is not obtaining prescriptions for controlled substances from multiple providers. Pharmacists must also check the database for last fill date, quantity, dosing instructions, and notify any prescribers that you attempted to fill another prescription from another physician. They may also be required to report to law enforcement.

547368 tn?1440541785 Hello Members. I'm sure you are all aware of the opiate phobic climate that exists in America. Different states vary a bit as do different PMPs. However it's clear that the government and it's agencies have waged war against Practitioners prescribing opiates for Chronic or Acute pain. That certainly feels like war against Chronic Pain Patients also. More and more Chronic Pain Patients are being prescribed less and less opiates.
Avatar m tn hi welcome to the forum although I have no first had experience with your doc I know its called the bath salts drug...its similar to mdma but the high dont lat as long as for withdrawals there should be no physical withdrawal from this drug ...
Avatar n tn If you had that type or WPW it is likely it would have presented before the overdose. More likely the drug overdose damaged the heart possibly causing some scar tissue that caused a bit of an AVnode block and the reason for your PACs and/or damage to a small section of your heart wall creating Afib and the more likely reason for your fast heart rate though your doctor should be the one to give you the definitive diagnosis of what you exactly have.
518031 tn?1295575374 I do not tolerate any use of any drug that is illegal as it adds to our already growing problems of obtaining pain management help.
Avatar n tn About 2.5 years ago, I had an encounter with a female masseuse in Pittsburgh. During a moment of incredible stupidity and irresponsibility I slowly and briefly entered her anus about 1-2 inches or so. It was a very slow unforced entry, minimal lubrication other than baby oil she had been using on me a few minutes earlier, and I was in her about 1 minute with almost no back and forth, just slowly entering.

Avatar n tn Take the dog to the vet before the drug gets into his/her system. They will probably induce vomiting and use charcoal to absorb the "poison" the dog has consumed. But you should take him asap; the sooner he/she gets this out of his/her system, the better.
Avatar f tn I have read about many deaths from someone swalling large amounts, but usually it was a drug dealer that swallowed a few grams so they won't get busted. Hope your safe.
Avatar f tn Hello- From June of this year til October of this year, I was in a monogamous relationship. The first 2 months we used condoms when we had sex, the last 2 months we did not as I was on birth control and I thought I could trust him. With our work schedules and just general life we only saw one another once a week, which is when we had sex. In October he told me he had been cheating on me almost the whole time we were together and we broke up. Scared of having something exhibit #1.
Avatar n tn That's a wide range of MG's. I was on Wellbutrin for about 2 years, 150mg and went off about a month ago. The doc said that it was an easy drug to stop.....somewhat, so I guess it's the first time he's been right. I was going back and forth between 75 and 150, and like you, even at that low dose I couldn't tell much appreciable difference. Being it's not a drug to get a high on, obviously it wasn't intentional on your part since there is no benefits that way....
5204799 tn?1365456784 i really have not considered that i might be taking enough to hurt myself in an overdose situation. if this is a stupid question i apologize, im just trying to be smart and more careful.
Avatar n tn t take any more. Kept the bottle from the drug store though (big mistake). I take several prescriptions and on Wed. didn't have my glasses on and reached for what I thought was prednisone. So I took 1 1/2 pills. I looked closer and realized I took 75 mg of flecainide. So I had to think fast cause I know this is a dangerous drug. Called the parmacy and they put me thru to poison control.
