Avatar f tn Stroke, seizures, fever, infection, kidney failure, liver hepatitis, pneumonia, thrombosis (clotting of the veins), and HIV are other potential complications of cocaine use and cocaine overdose.

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.
199177 tn?1490502134 A tramadol overdose can be fatal. Overdose symptoms of a tramadol overdose may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, cold or clammy skin, feeling light-headed, fainting, or coma. Tramadol may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Tramadol should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I have found myself taking one just to relieve those symptoms I am concerned that I am dependent on the tramadol and it doesn’t look like I am going to get rid of the pain, and the need, any time soon." "I have been taking 10-15 Tramadol 50MG for about 5 years now and I am trying to get off of them. I have tried tapering down and that is not working...

Avatar m tn Most frightening to me is that someone dies in the United States every 19 minutes from a prescription drug overdose, mostly accidental. Every 19 minutes. It is a horrifying statistic. As much as I searched, I could not find a documented case of death from marijuana overdose. It is perhaps no surprise then that 76% of physicians recently surveyed said they would approve the use of marijuana to help ease a woman's pain from breast cancer.
1386425 tn?1280122758 I then decided to compared the side effects between my legal drugs and Marijuana. The Legal drugs have more symptoms then the Illegal Drug. such as Damage to liver, Manic Stages, Heart Attack, Depression EX. Also with an overall addiction at the end. While Marijuana also known as (weed) is not Addictive. People might want the drug but do not need it, The with draw can cause Emotional problems yes.
Avatar n tn To minimize this complication and decrease the illegal diversion of the drug, the FDA suggested the drug be used primarily as a combination product. The interesting property of the sublingual combination tablet is that naloxone is poorly absorbed sublingually but is fully active when injected. Thus, if an addict tries to boost a high by injecting Suboxone, the naloxone effect would precipitate an immediate, full-blown withdrawal syndrome.
Avatar f tn Marijuana, overdose means you just fell asleep, but yet is made illegal and stayed illegal because people because fearful of what it could do. Alcohol kills every day and is proven to cause inside damage such as a liver problem, but yet you can get a glass of strong drink down the street for $6. Remember alcohol was illegal and people were going under the law to get it. At the same time marijuana was legal.

Avatar n tn He had an undetermined bagwith a few pills beside him (was not known to be a drug user), but it was assumes this was an overdose or drug reaction. The examiner said he had very wet lungs and airways, which is common in drug related deaths because of the fluid build up from the reaction, and she thought that was it. However, the drugs in the bag turned out to be an antibiotic he was taking for an infection. So it was not illegal drugs.
Avatar f tn Last year, 750,000 methadone prescriptions were written for pain relief, but only 250,000 people were treated with the drug for addiction to heroin and other opioids, Reuter tells WebMD. Methadone can suppress drug withdrawal symptoms as an addiction treatment for 24 hours; the drug's ability to suppress pain lasts just four to eight hours. But methadone stays in the system as long as 59 hours.

Avatar n tn My question is how much pain goes along with it? Enough to need a prescription of methadone? The reason I ask is b/c my mother has a history of drug addiction & while her liver specialist isn't prescribing the methadone to her, another physician is.
