Illegal drug use symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Illegal drug use symptoms


Avatar n tn To complicate things further,I personally do not see any moral ,ethical or health issues in the paradigm of Recreational drug use,done with education and clean known safe chemicals. Only problem they are all illegal that is why I told Chad from Philly to have a few beers,what do you think the DEA agents do after a hard days work taking your favorite drug from you.
Avatar f tn I believe that illegal drug use can brin out dormant GAD. I know this from experience. I used cocaine once and that brought out my first panic attack and week of derealization. THen i was back to normal for couple months. THen one night after having couple shots of tequilla, boom anxiety symptoms appeared. It began with pressure in the head then lead to more common symptoms like being nervous, anxious, fear of dying and beeing doomed, etc.
Avatar f tn I did smoke a little pot here and there because it was the ONLY eay I could eat or keep food and helped with my other symptoms to. I am 28weeks along now and I havent smoked in a few weeks and am passing my drug tests. I am due march 30th and was just wondering if anyone knew if I am passing my drug tests then my baby is alo right? Or could it still be in my babies system also?
Avatar m tn Could be Kratom. It is bought online, and they put "not for human consumption" on it to please the FDA and DEA. Otherwise, it would be illegal. On the sites, it sells itself by saying, "it's incense for burning" or some crap. The thing is that he's YOUR child, underage, living in your home??? I'd toss it and send him to rehab before it's too late. That may sound harsh, but you may be saving his life. This is what you actually found.
Avatar f tn We thought at fist that maybe she was overdosing on somas or mixing it with alcohol, but this last time she went into a subway bathroom and came out a couple minutes later this way. We’re beginning to become suspicious that another drug is involved (and its def not any of her other prescription medicines). Any thoughts on what it could be? Do the symptoms sound familiar to anyone. We desperately want to help her but need to know what we are dealing with first.
Avatar n tn After 6 months of using, there should not be significant damage yet, but there is a possibility that a small hole is being made and if so, that is why you can feel it in the other nostril, that happened to me. If you have been clean for 2 weeks, your nose has not had time to heal and it will be swollen and sore i imagine. i don't think you need to worry about your nose, it will heal after you stop unless you create that hole.
Avatar m tn There is a possibility he is still having symptoms from spice, but drug use is a symptom of other issues. If he quit and nothing more, he will continue to have personality and behavior problems. Do you know anybody who is close to them that you could talk to?
Avatar n tn I had a HUGE craving to use today but didn't....Just thought I would share that...When you think about it, drug use is a real simple issue.....just don't use! That's it! Now why can't I come to that point every other time I wanted to get high???
Avatar n tn have no withdrawl symptoms, I would think that she'd be O.K. Keep in mind that I'm not familiar with this drug therefore I could be VERY wrong. If this is a long acting or time-released drug then it may have stayed with her for those few days that she had stopped. I'm also unfamiliar with the chemical make-up of Ativan so I don't advise her stopping without a second opinion from another doctor. As we know, some drugs such as alcohol & benzos can be VERY dangerous if stopped suddenly.
722833 tn?1230732331 I disagree with Kiki, I do believe it is a serious matter and like it or not, marijuana is illegal and partaking in the use of illegal drugs during pregnancy is a CPS issue. It is more of an issue as this is not a matter of being addicted to a drug and being unable to quit without treatment, but rather willfully using it despite known consequences. A drug, is a drug, is a drug. The laws in this country speak clearly on this issue.
Avatar m tn i did a little bit of research and came to the conclusion that it is drug-induced akathisia,plus i feel sleepy all the time (might be from the jetlag),but i think it has something to do with the drug,even though i sleep fine now,and this feeling comes in waves now,sometimes with extreme feelings of terror which are obiously not in my head (its been about three weeks),feeling like im gonna throw up sometimes.
Avatar n tn Secondly i am not on any high horse, you see i have ridden them many times and fallen and learned. You hve not answered the fundimental question of wether the use of the drug you promote has any adverse reactions for people with hcv. there appear to be many warnings about its potential for dependence yet that for you seems of little concern. As for thhe theory that its use will increase the possibility of people compleating tx.Where is your evidence.
Avatar m tn I would ask you to step back for a moment and question all of the generalities you prescribe to drug use. Drug use is not an all or nothing proposition. Consider your eating of cholesterol. Cholesterol can do serious damage to your arteries and cause severe and often fatal heart disease. I presume you don't have the same reaction to people who eat cholesterol.
Avatar m tn For 3 years I have had many MS symptoms, pain in legs and arms, cognitive issues, numbness, and memory loss. I have and do use cannabis and find it helps with the symptoms. I find it difficult to inform my primary care or neuro of this use. I have been a recreational user for 15 years, however only in the last 3 years have I seen a change in my mental and physical condition. I find that lite use helps with the pain and anxiety.
Avatar f tn In January i did a random urine drug screen I was hoorified at the results there were drugs in there I have never taken even an illict drug. My name wasnt on the cup it was placed by me in a room where there were several other cups no one checked the temperature. no chain of command. In february they filled my ms contin and in march now they cut me off and said i could get narcotics from another docter but still use them for epidurals and such.
614508 tn?1265285322 I shall do a little research to find the post you are referring to. All the research I have ever read concerning this drug warns about its effect on mental health and not in a good way. Paranoia is the one that springs immediately to mind.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to remain a lifetime user or will lung cancer get me. Marijuana is my drug of choice, no cigaretts and only an occasional beer.
540310 tn?1343627720 I have the impression that quite a few people would like to find some sustainable level of drug use, either recreational, for pain management, or just to feel more comfortable and functional in their lives. There's a lot of experimentation going on, and we hear more about the failures than the successes, if there are any. Perhaps there are people out there who have enhanced their lives by taking exactly 10 mg.
206807 tn?1331939784 To me, that kind of drug dependence is different to addiction arising from recreational drug use, although drug testing would not differentiate between the two.
Avatar m tn While I was in the hospital this time, a good friend of mine who was into all kinds of prescription and illegal drugs committed suicide. I was released from the hospital in time for his funeral. That whole situation made up my mind that I needed to make a change. So I did, I stopped taking all of my medication cold turkey. Withdrawals were ridiculous, I couldn't stand it. I went to a doctor and he put me on subutex. This was in September of 2011. I have been on 8-16mg per day since.
Avatar n tn I'm very small, I weigh 88 pounds (Not due to drug use, cocaine is also the only drug I use, and i use it occasionally. I stopped growing in grade 6 or 7) and supposedly it stays in my system longer than it does my boyfriend's, he's about 190 lbs. It takes a lot less for me since I'm so small. Sorry to only talk about myself, i hope you can compare your situation to mine and maybe find out why this is lasting so long.
Avatar n tn I am 33 years and my mom took this and another (now illegal) drug when pregnant with me. I have lived my life with all sorts of problems like a deformed heart, deformed kidney, scoliosis, deformed intestines, migraines, fainting, digestive disorders, and the list goes on... All of the life challenges this has caused me has been more of a blessing than a curse, supporting my spiritual growth and emotional maturity development. Now I would love to have children and certainly hope I can.
Avatar n tn even his doctor said he won a lotto. He is a nice person told me that symptoms means nothing except the final blood test. he said, he was very sick during ARS, his ARS occur on 3 weeks after sex. he went to hosipital for an intensive care , the duration of sick was 2 weeks, he got high fever something like 40. and rash on his body, but without any sore throat. now his blood test shows CD4+ is 500, and no med required. i am so happy that he got a nice result and still being very healthy.
Avatar n tn Folks when you ask are you allergic to cocaine....? Hard to say, because it is unique in every form. In other words, how was it manufactured, what additives were used? It is not like there is a patent on cutting/producing cocaine and it is the same no matter where you buy it! This is not to say I am an expert on cocaine, this is only to say that cocaine is an illegal underground drug & when you use it, you don't know what you are sticking up your nose or body for that matter.
Avatar m tn Once that step is taken, the VA will determine who is a good candidate for the treatment. Will marijuana use influence their decision to prescribe it for a patient? Patient is genotype 1, early stages, no liver damage. No alcohol consumption.
Avatar n tn NO ILLEGAL DRUG COULD HAVE THE WITHDRAWLS OF EFFEXOR! HOW CAN THEY LEGALIZE DRUGS YOU CAN GET HOOKED ON???? I HAVE NO MONEY FOR THE PILLS (300-400 a month) as I lost my job and health insurance' HERE COMES THE DEPRESSION, CRYING, SUICIDAL THOUGHTS! I am so scared what will happen next! I have been on Effexor for maybe 8 years. They put me on it when I was taking care of my mother whom had cancer. At that time I started having terrible panic attacks. The doc put me on Effexor xr.
Avatar m tn I did Extacy when I was 18 years old about 3 times. I never experienced any side effects from it. I am now 26 years old. For some stupid reason which I greatly regret. I took an Extacy pill September 28th. I had a great time on it. The next day I felt fine but about 2 weeks later I was feeling very high anxiety & I am suffering from depression. I also was having mood swings.
1934087 tn?1360478607 Thank you SO MUCH for your advice. I value your input very much since you have experienced this and know what it is like to be stuck in the situation I am in. I used to be on the Mylan patches - they were so ineffective for me - they peel off so easily. They were OK at first, but then it was as if my skin "rejected" them and they simply would not stay put. On 2 separate occasions, my husband found them stuck to him - one on the bottom of his foot, and one on his leg.
