Some countries temporarily withdrew triazolam from the market because of concerns about adverse reactions, mostly psychological, associated with higher dose ranges. Its use at lower doses with appropriate care and labeling has been reaffirmed by the FDA and most other countries.Alprazolam: A triazolobenzodiazepine compound with antianxiety and sedative-hypnotic actions, that is efficacious in the treatment of PANIC DISORDERS, with or without AGORAPHOBIA, and in generalized ANXIETY DISORDERS. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p238)Anti-Anxiety Agents: Agents that alleviate ANXIETY, tension, and ANXIETY DISORDERS, promote sedation, and have a calming effect without affecting clarity of consciousness or neurologic conditions. ADRENERGIC BETA-ANTAGONISTS are commonly used in the symptomatic treatment of anxiety but are not included here.Temazepam: A benzodiazepine that acts as a GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID modulator and anti-anxiety agent.Chlordiazepoxide: An anxiolytic benzodiazepine derivative with anticonvulsant, sedative, and amnesic properties. It has also been used in the symptomatic treatment of alcohol withdrawal.Substance Withdrawal Syndrome: Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation. The concept includes withdrawal from smoking or drinking, as well as withdrawal from an administered drug.Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium: An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures: A condition where seizures occur in association with ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) without other identifiable causes. Seizures usually occur within the first 6-48 hours after the cessation of alcohol intake, but may occur during periods of alcohol intoxication. Single generalized tonic-clonic motor seizures are the most common subtype, however, STATUS EPILEPTICUS may occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1174)Morphine Dependence: Strong dependence, both physiological and emotional, upon morphine.Research Support as Topic: Financial support of research activities.Chlormethiazole: A sedative and anticonvulsant often used in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal. Chlormethiazole has also been proposed as a neuroprotective agent. The mechanism of its therapeutic activity is not entirely clear, but it does potentiate GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID receptors response and it may also affect glycine receptors.Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome: Fetal and neonatal addiction and withdrawal as a result of the mother's dependence on drugs during pregnancy. Withdrawal or abstinence symptoms develop shortly after birth. Symptoms exhibited are loud, high-pitched crying, sweating, yawning and gastrointestinal disturbances.Panic Disorder: A type of anxiety disorder characterized by unexpected panic attacks that last minutes or, rarely, hours. Panic attacks begin with intense apprehension, fear or terror and, often, a feeling of impending doom.

The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.Pharmaceutical Services, Online: Pharmacy services accessed via electronic means.Prescription Drugs: Drugs that cannot be sold legally without a prescription.Counterfeit Drugs: Drugs manufactured and sold with the intent to misrepresent its origin, authenticity, chemical composition, and or efficacy.

It should also be differentiated from MAXIMUM TOLERATED DOSE and NO-OBSERVED-ADVERSE-EFFECT LEVEL.Neuronal Plasticity: The capacity of the NERVOUS SYSTEM to change its reactivity as the result of successive activations.Central Nervous System Depressants: A very loosely defined group of drugs that tend to reduce the activity of the central nervous system. The major groups included here are ethyl alcohol, anesthetics, hypnotics and sedatives, narcotics, and tranquilizing agents (antipsychotics and antianxiety agents).Meprobamate: A carbamate with hypnotic, sedative, and some muscle relaxant properties, although in therapeutic doses reduction of anxiety rather than a direct effect may be responsible for muscle relaxation. Meprobamate has been reported to have anticonvulsant actions against petit mal seizures, but not against grand mal seizures (which may be exacerbated). It is used in the treatment of ANXIETY DISORDERS, and also for the short-term management of INSOMNIA but has largely been superseded by the BENZODIAZEPINES. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p603)Receptors, GABA-A: Cell surface proteins which bind GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID and contain an integral membrane chloride channel. Each receptor is assembled as a pentamer from a pool of at least 19 different possible subunits. The receptors belong to a superfamily that share a common CYSTEINE loop.

Theres a caveat here. Coroners and others who fill out death certificates have not always listed a specific drug as a cause of death. They are being encouraged to do so, and more death certificates now mention specific drugs than in years past. So its not entirely clear if the numbers have changed because specific drugs are being listed more often. Related: Drug Overdoses Killed 50,000 People Margaret Warner of the NCHS and colleagues used new methods to dig down into death certificates from 2010 to 2014 to find the top killers. "During this five-year period, the age-adjusted rate of drug overdose deaths involving heroin more than tripled, and the rate of drug overdose deaths involving methamphetamine more than doubled," they wrote in their report. "The rate of drug overdose deaths involving fentanyl more than doubled in a single year (from 2013 to 2014)." ...
OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between non-fatal overdose and risk of subsequent fatal overdose. METHODS: We assessed risk factors for overdose death among two prospective cohorts of persons who inject drugs (PWID) in Vancouver, Canada. Extended Cox regression was used to examine if reports of non-fatal overdose were associated with the time to fatal overdose while adjusting for other behavioral, social and structural confounders.
BACKGROUND Non-fatal drug overdose is a major cause of morbidity among people who use drugs, although few studies have examined this risk among street-involved youth. We sought to determine the risk factors associated with non-fatal overdose among Canadian street-involved youth who reported illicit drug use. METHODS Using data from a prospective cohort of street-involved youth in Vancouver, Canada, we identified youth without a history of overdose and employed Cox regression analyses to determine factors associated with time to non-fatal overdose between September 2005 and May 2012. RESULTS Among 615 participants, 98 (15.9%) reported a non-fatal overdose event during follow-up, resulting in an incidence density of 7.67 cases per 100 person-years. In multivariate Cox regression analyses, binge drug use (adjusted hazard ratio [AHR]=1.85; 95% confidence interval [CI]=1.20-2.84), non-injection crystal methamphetamine use ...

Antidotes are available for some drug overdoses. An antidote is another drugthat counteracts or blocks the overdose drug. For example, an acetaminophen overdose can be treated with an oral medication, N-acetylcysteine (Mucomyst),if the level of acetaminophen found in the blood is extremely high. Naloxoneis an antinarcotic drug that is given to counteract narcotic poisoning. Nalmefen or methadone may also be used. Psychiatric evaluation may be recommendedif the drug overdose was deliberate.. While many victims of drug overdose recover without long-term effects, therecan be serious consequences. Some drug overdoses cause the failure of major organs like the kidneys or liver, or failure of whole systems like the respiratory or circulatory systems. Patients who survive drug overdose may need kidney dialysis, kidney or liver transplant, or ongoing care as a result of heart ...
Drug overdose death rates have increased steadily in the United States since 1979. In 2008, a total of 36,450 drug overdose deaths (i.e., unintentional, intentional [suicide or homicide], or undetermined intent) were reported, with prescription opioid analgesics (e.g., oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone), cocaine, and heroin the drugs most commonly involved (1). Since the mid-1990s, community-based programs have offered opioid overdose prevention services to persons who use drugs, their families and friends, and service providers. Since 1996, an increasing number of these programs have provided the opioid antagonist naloxone hydrochloride, the treatment of choice to reverse the potentially fatal respiratory depression caused by overdose of heroin and other opioids (2). Naloxone has no effect on non-opioid overdoses (e.g., cocaine, benzodiazepines, or alcohol) (3). In October 2010, the ...
Fatal drug overdoses, due to both illicit and prescription drug use, have become epidemic in the United States (US). The rate exceeds that of deaths from motor vehicle accidents, largely due to the increase in prescription opioid overdoses.1 In 2013, about 16,000 deaths occurred from prescription opioid overdoses, accounting for more than half of all prescription drug overdose deaths.2 Multiple substances (eg, alcohol, benzodiazepines, and other sedating drugs) often contribute to these overdose deaths. Many opioid overdoses occur in patients with legitimate opioid prescriptions who have identifiable risk factors (see Table 1). This issue provides historical background about the opioid overdose epidemic, followed by information about naloxone - a mu opioid receptor antagonist that is indicated for the treatment of respiratory and/or central nervous system (CNS) depression due to opioid overdose.

Are We Really Monogamous?. Most of what Ive written so far about human sexuality has been rather erudite, and certainly doesnt answer many questions of what makes us go on dates and cheat on our spouse, or why we want so badly to get married when were twenty-five. I promise things will be looking up very soon. In this very essay, well even talk about orgasms and the size of mens testicles. Theres still a bit of science we need to deal with, but were done with all the biology terminology. From here on out, its all about when we have sex, why we have sex, and with whom.. Im going to tackle human sexuality from both sides, male and female. This may seem the obvious choice, but just to be sure, lets remember that sex is competition. Males and females have their own interests, evolutionarily speaking, and we have hopefully dispelled the myth that human intelligence puts us above other animals. Like chimps and dolphins and killer whales, we are very intelligent social animals, and examining ...
The mechanics of human sexuality or mechanics of sex, or more formally the biomechanics of human sexuality, is the study of the mechanics related to human sexual activity. Examples of topics include the biomechanical study of the strength of vaginal tissues and the biomechanics of male erectile function. The mechanics of sex under limit circumstances, such as sexual activity at zero-gravity in outer space, are also being studied. Pioneering researchers studied the male and female genitals during coitus (penile-vaginal penetration) with ultrasound technology in 1992 and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 1999, mapping the anatomy of the activity and taking images illustrating the fit of male and female genitals. In the research using MRI, researchers imaged couples performing coitus inside an MRI machine. The magnetic resonance images also showed that the penis has the shape of a boomerang, that one third of its length consists of the root of the penis, and that the vaginal walls wrap snugly ...
Focusing on wholeness: Gods plan for human sexuality , LifeSiteNews.com: Christians have not done a good enough job in describing - and, sadly, living out - a positive vision for human sexuality. It is true that in our overly sexualized culture, theres plenty to protest: pornography, sleazy advertising, explicit song lyrics, TV shows that glamorize infidelity of every kind. We would be less than Christian if we remained silent. So, we speak out against sexual sin. Got it. But what alternative do we offer? What are we for ...

An apparent heroin overdose has Wyoming County Emergency Medical Services using intranasal naloxone for the first time. According to the Attic Police Department, the Attica Fire Department was dispatched to 17 Exchange St., Apt. #2, Attica, for a reported heroin overdose Thursday evening. Attica Police officer Stephanie Previty responded and found a 24-year-old Attica resident, unresponsive and in cardiac arrest. Officer Previty administered CPR until the Attica Fire Department EMS personnel arrived on scene. Department personnel verified the overdose and administered a new protocol of intranasal naloxone. Intranasal naloxone is a new medical option in the community overdose prevention program. It is used as a proactive response to heroin and other opiate drug overdoses that typically result in lethal outcomes. This is the first use of the drug in Wyoming County since the inception of the program. The victim was revived and conscious while being transported to Wyoming County ...

Yesterday the Office of National Drug Control Policy urged that first responders be equipped with naloxone, a medication used to counteract opiate overdoses. Some states already have laws on the books to do just that.. In a CSG research brief posted yesterday, CSG examined laws passed by states to increase access to naloxone, sometimes known by its brand name Narcan. Twenty-one states and D.C. have passed laws that increase access to naloxone and provide civil immunity to persons administering the antidote or reduce the fear of criminal repercussions for overdose victims and bystanders when they report an overdose.. CSG also surveyed legislation introduced so far in states 2014 sessions and found seven new states moving to adopt these "harm reduction" laws and another seven looking to amend their current laws.. A CSG infographic provides a quick overview of facts about overdose deaths along with an interactive map of state harm reduction laws and pending legislation. CSG Resources:. ...
Opioid-related deaths rates in the United States continue to rise. A decades-long US prescription drug epidemic persists, driven by high rates of per capita opioid analgesic dispensing, and is now paired with a growing availability of illicit heroin, fentanyl, and fentanyl derivatives. Rates of opioid use disorders, opioid treatment admissions, opioid-related emergency department (ED) and hospital admissions, and overdose mortality have all steadily increased since 1990.8 In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that for every unintentional overdose death related to an opioid analgesic, 9 people were admitted for substance abuse treatment, 35 visited EDs, 161 reported drug abuse or dependence, and 461 reported nonmedical uses of opioid analgesics.10 Recent federal and state reform efforts seek to bolster a public health response to opioid use disorders and overdose deaths.14,50 The availability and dissemination of core evidence-based ...
Ohio is in the middle of a drug overdose epidemic, not an opioid epidemic or an opioid crisis. Fentanyl and powerful variants, such as carfentanil, are killing large numbers of users of cocaine, meth and other drugs.. The states narrow emphasis on heroin users and opioid addiction has missed a major reshaping of drug overdose death in the last three years. Ohio has a drug overdose epidemic - not an opioid use epidemic - and the problem is a broadly contaminated supply of prohibited drugs.. Harm Reduction Ohio has tied Ohios large increase in overdose death since 2015 to the spread of fentanyl and its analogs into Ohios cocaine and meth supply. A focus on reducing the contamination and adulteration of Ohios illegal drug supply is the key to the immediate reduction of overdose death, not a focus on opioid addiction, an important - but secondary issue - in an epidemic of ...
Easy-to-use technology provides alternative to injectable form of lifesaving medication.. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health, is pleased to announce that intranasal naloxone -a nasal spray formulation of the medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose - has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The new technology has an easy-to-use, needle-free design, providing family members, caregivers and first responders with an alternative to injectable naloxone for use during a suspected opioid overdose.. The new technology will be marketed by Adapt Pharma Limited, a partner of Lightlake Therapeutics Inc. NIDA and Lightlake, a biopharmaceutical company developing novel treatments for addiction, entered into a partnership in 2013 to apply new technology towards developing a lifesaving intervention for opioid overdose. The product will be marketed under the brand name NARCAN® Nasal Spray.. In 2013, ...
According to NIDA (the National Institute on Drug Abuse) more than 50 percent of people who use heroin have an addiction to the drug. Heroin usually comes in a powder form that ranges from bright white to dark brown that users either mix with water to inject, smoke, or snort. Heroin can also come in the form of black tar heroin which is a type of heroin that resembles tar. Those who use black tar heroin typically inject it. Unfortunately, due to the high addiction potential of heroin and its potency it is very to easy to overdose on it. This is especially true if heroin is mixed with other substance.. What is a heroin overdose? A heroin overdose happens when someone take a large amount of heroin. Some people think that a heroin overdose can only happen to someone who is new to using the drug or to those who use heroin all the time. While it is true that these people are more prone to a heroin overdose, it can happen to anyone taking heroin at any time.. New ...

The post-incarceration overdose death rates of heroin-dependent people in the U.K. are truly appalling. "Everybody knows" that drugs are readily available in prison, but this is an urban myth that has been conclusively disproved by careful research. In reality, most addicts cant get drugs in prison and as a result their tolerance wanes. When released, they take drugs at their former dose levels, putting themselves at high risk of overdose.. The Guardian reports that widespread naloxone provision upon prison release is being considered in the U.K. Naloxone is an inexpensive opiate antagonist that will reverse the acute effects of opiate overdose (e.g., suppressed respiration). The benefits are temporary and the underlying addiction remains intact, but the extra 30-60 minutes of time (and oxygen) the drug provides to an overdosed opiate user can prove life saving. President Obamas national ...
AIMS: To describe alprazolam poisoning and the relative toxicity of alprazolam compared with other benzodiazepines. METHODS: A database of consecutive poisoning admissions to a regional toxicology service was searched to identify consecutive benzodiazepine deliberate self poisonings, which were coded as alprazolam, diazepam or other benzodiazepine. Major outcomes used were length of stay (LOS), intensive care (ICU) admission, coma (GCS > 9), flumazenil administration and requirement for mechanical ventilation. Prescription data were obtained for benzodiazepines for the study period. RESULTS: There were 2063 single benzodiazepine overdose admissions: 131 alprazolam overdoses, 823 diazepam overdoses and 1109 other benzodiazepine overdoses. The median LOS for alprazolam overdoses was 19 h which was 1.27 (95% CI 1.04, 1.54) times longer compared with other benzodiazepines by multiple linear ...

MUST ADDRESS HEROIN DEATHS Once largely relegated to Baltimore City, heroin use and its related adverse consequences are spreading to every part of the state, and an increasing number of Marylands citizens are dying of heroin overdoses. This shift reflects national trends showing a 74 percent increase in heroin use from 2009 to 2012 and a doubling of heroin overdose rates in 28 states sampled by the Centers for Disease Control. After a sharp reduction in heroin overdose deaths from 2007 to 2010, Maryland heroin deaths have risen to mirror these increases, reaching 464 deaths in 2013. In Baltimore City, conversely, the number of heroin overdose ...

December 5, 2005. Acetaminophen is a widely used non-aspirin analgesic in the United States. It is, in general, a very safe drug with very few side effects. This very effectiveness and safety have led to acetaminophen being an added ingredient in many cold, headache, migraine, allergy, and pain drugs. Unfortunately, although safe in normal doses, acetaminophen can cause a very deadly side effect if taken in doses that are too high. It can cause acute liver failure which can have virtually no symptoms until significant damage to the liver is done. There is a very effective treatment for acetaminophen overdose but it must be started early for it to work.. Most cases of liver damage associated with acetaminophen in adults are due to intentional overdose. For instance, the Arizona Poison Drug Information Center received notification of 2740 cases of acetaminophen overdoses in adults in the last 4 years; of these, 65% were in women (McNally, J, ...
Acetaminophen (USAN) or Paracetamol (INN) is a popular analgesic and antipyretic drug that is used for the relief of fever, headaches, and other minor aches and pains. It is a major ingredient in numerous cold and flu medications and many prescription analgesics. It is extremely safe in standard doses, but because of its wide availability, deliberate or accidental overdoses are not uncommon. Acetaminophen, unlike other common analgesics such as aspirin and ibuprofen, has no anti-inflammatory properties or effects on platelet function, and so it is not a member of the class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. In normal doses acetaminophen does not irritate the lining of the stomach nor affect blood coagulation, the kidneys, or the fetal ductus arteriosus (as NSAIDs can). Like NSAIDs and unlike opioid analgesics, acetaminophen does not cause euphoria or alter mood in any way. Acetaminophen and ...

Prescription Opioid Misuse, Heroin, and Fentanyl. The United States is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic to include overdoses involving prescription opioid medications, heroin, and illicit fentanyl (a powerful synthetic opioid medication that is increasingly being produced illicitly). In 2015, more than 33,000 people died from overdoses involving opioids, which is up from more than 28,000 deaths in 2014. As in 2014, overdose deaths in 2015 involving prescription opioids (excluding the category of synthetic opioids that includes fentanyl) rose only slightly, suggesting that efforts in recent years to reduce the misuse of these drugs may be having an impact. Despite this, in 2015, 17,536 deaths involved an opioid medication and approximately 3.8 million people reported misusing such medications in the month prior to their interview. In 2015, the overall increase in overdose deaths was driven in large part by continued sharp increases in deaths involving heroin and ...
Evaluating the impact of methadone maintenance programmes on mortality due to overdose and aids in a cohort of heroin users in Spain. (2005) DESIGN: Prospective cohort study of all heroin-addicted patients who started methadone maintenance treatment between 1992 and 1997. Follow-up assessments were carried out every 9 months until 2000. SUBJECTS: 5049 patients followed for an average of 4.6 years. FINDINGS: Fifty per cent were in methadone maintenance treatment (MT) during the study period; of the total cohort 1005 (19.9%) patients died. Of the deaths: 38.4% were due to AIDS, 34.7% to overdose and 27% to other causes. Overall mortality decreased from 5.9 deaths per 100 person-years in 1992 to 1.6 in 1999. Globally, life expectancy at birth was 39 years, 38 years lower than that of the general population. The main factor for overdose mortality was not being in MT at the time of death [relative ratio (RR) = 7.1]; other factors were being a current injector at baseline and being HIV positive. For ...

Barbiturate overdose is poisoning due to excessive doses of barbiturates. Symptoms typically include difficulty thinking, poor coordination, decreased level of consciousness, and a decreased effort to breathe (respiratory depression). Complications of overdose can include noncardiogenic pulmonary edema. If death occurs this is typically due to a lack of breathing. Barbiturate overdose may occur by accident or purposefully in an attempt to cause death. The toxic effects are additive to those of alcohol and benzodiazepines. The lethal dose varies with a persons tolerance and how the drug is taken. The effects of barbiturates occur via the GABA neurotransmitter. Exposure may be verified by testing the urine or blood. Treatment involves supporting a persons breathing and blood pressure. While there is no antidote, activated charcoal may be useful. Multiple doses of charcoal may be required. Hemodialysis may occasionally be considered. Urine alkalinisation has not been found to ...
Attorney General Eric Holder announced a new Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) regulation that represents new take-back efforts to dispose of unused and unnecessary prescription drugs so that the growing problems of prescription drug misuse and addiction can be mitigated. The Attorney General announced the new regulation through a video message posted on the Justice Departments website. According to the Attorney Generals message, "prescription drug misuse is an urgent and growing threat.". Statistics. The video message highlights the fact that the scope of the problem is expansive. For example, according to the video, "in 2011 alone, more than half of the 41,300 unintentional drug overdose deaths in the United States involved prescription drugs, and hazardous opioid pain relievers led to about 17,000 of those deaths." According to a DOJ press release, the danger is ...
In acute attacks of acute intermittent porphyria, the mainstay of treatment is glucose and heme arginate administration. We present the case of a 58-year-old patient with acute liver failure requiring urgent liver transplantation after erroneous 6-fold overdose of heme arginate during an acute attack. As recommended in the product information, albumin and charcoal were administered and hemodiafiltration was started, which could not prevent acute liver failure, requiring super-urgent liver transplantation after 6 days. The explanted liver showed no preexisting liver cirrhosis, but signs of subacute liver injury and starting regeneration. The patient recovered within a short time. A literature review revealed four poorly documented cases of potential hepatic and/or renal toxicity of hematin or heme arginate. This is the first published case report of acute liver failure requiring super-urgent liver transplantation after accidental heme arginate overdose. The literature and recommendations in case ...

A benzamide derivative, it is well tolerated, with relatively few side effects and minimal behavioural toxicity in doses with antipsychotic effect.2 Amisulpride overdoses were first reported to Australian poisons information centres in early 2004, and about 60 telephone calls about amisulpride overdose were made from hospitals to the New South Wales and Western Australian Poisons Information Centres between July 2004 and June 2005, including the four cases reported here.. A review of clinical trials of amisulpride reported that it had no effect on the ECG in therapeutic doses and did not produce arrhythmias.3 There are no published data on animal toxicity. It was therefore surprising that such severe effects were seen in overdose. There were a few published reports of overdose in the literature before its introduction in Australia,4,5 and a reference to QT ...
Background. Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein polymerase that is essential for cell immortality. Recent studies have demonstrated that a high percentage of gastric cancer tissue expressed telomerase. This study describes the presence of telomerase activity in gastric lavage fluid in patients with gastric cancer. Methods. Gastric lavage fluid was collected during esophageogastroduodenoscopy in 70 patients: 25 with gastric cancer, 25 with peptic ulcer disease, and 20 with normal stomach. The fluid and biopsy samples were analyzed for telomerase activity by a polymerase chain reaction-based telomerase repeat amplification protocol. The findings were related to the histological results. Results. Telomerase activity was present in 24 of the 25 (96%) gastric cancer tissue and in 7 of the 25 tissue specimens from peptic ulcer or gastritis. In the gastric lavage fluid, telomerase was detected in 20 patients (80%) with gastric cancer, 7 patients (28%) with peptic ulcer, and none in normal subjects (P , ...
The Kansas City Star reported on a guilty plea in U.S. District Court in Kansas City from a man who sold a counterfeit oxycodone pill made with carfentanil that caused a non-fatal overdose in a 17-year-old boy. Although initially facing four charges against him, Gage S. Lankas pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute carfentanil, a drug that is 10,000 more potent than morphine. Special Agent in Charge William J. Callahan III of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administrations St. Louis said that carfentanil, "…has no legitimate medical purpose for human beings.". According to the plea agreement, on August 2, 2017, Lankas sold 14 of the counterfeit oxycodone pills and hundreds of Xanax pills to the 17-year-old. Once back at his home in Grain Valley, the teenager took a few of the Xanax pills and one-half of one of the oxycodone pills and then blacked out. The teenager was transported to Childrens Mercy Hospital and Kansas City, Missouri where doctors were able to save ...
Some locales that have historically been hardest hit - such as West Virginia, Ohio and Washington, D.C. - saw their numbers plummet by more than 50%, the researchers found.. Seven other states - Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Wisconsin - had significant declines in hospital-treated heroin overdoses.. So, what explains the encouraging news?. "First, some of the states now seeing decreases were those that witnessed increases earlier in the epidemic," Vivolo-Kantor said. "It is possible that early intervention and localized responses are starting to pay off.". Its also possible that shifts in the supply chain may be a factor, she said, "since we know heroin drug submissions to the DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] are decreasing.". Another likely explanation: Wider access to the drug naloxone (Narcan), which can reverse an opioid overdose if administered quickly. It allows bystanders and first responders to ...
But money alone wont fix the problem-we also need legislative and policy changes. Instead of criminalizing the drug based solely on its chemical composition, legality should be defined by toxicity, the accreditation of manufacturing labs, and distribution method. Our federal agencies need to target online distributors. Medical examiners and coroners need to document medications found at overdose death scenes, check those lists against state databases, and report cases of prescription drug diversion. We also need to alert prescribing physicians in these cases so they can re-evaluate their prescription guidelines. Coroners must certify overdose deaths properly-listing all the medications by name instead of just writing "mixed drug intoxication" on the death certificate, for instance. Medical examiners should work with the Drug Enforcement Administration to apply comprehensive testing techniques to pills collected from death scenes, looking for ...
Acetaminophen (APAP) overdose induces massive hepatocyte necrosis. Necrotic tissue releases high mobility group B1 (HMGB1), and HMGB1 contributes to liver injury. Even though blockade of HMGB1 does not protect against APAP-induced acute liver injury (ALI) at 9 h time point, the later time points are not studied and the role of HMGB1 in APAP overdose is unknown, it is possible that neutralization of HMGB1 might improve hepatocyte regeneration. This study aims to test whether blockade of HMGB1 improves hepatocyte regeneration after APAP overdose. Male C57BL/6 mice were treated with a single dose of APAP (350 mg/kg). 2 hrs after APAP administration, the APAP challenged mice were randomized to receive treatment with either anti-HMGB1 antibody (400 μg per dose) or non-immune (sham) IgG every 24 hours for a total of 2 doses. 24 hrs after APAP injection, anti-HMGB1 therapy instead of sham IgG therapy significantly improved hepatocyte regeneration microscopically; 48 hrs after APAP challenge, the sham IgG
Among those states that already have regulations for the medical use of cannabis, there is a growing trend of decreasing incidence of prescription opioid overdose deaths. Recent evidence suggest that medical marijuana, when taken together with prescription opioid analgesics, can significantly control severe chronic pain at significantly lower doses of prescription opiates because of the synergistic effect of cannabis on opioids. This results in fewer incidence of prescription opioid analgesic overdose. Unfortunately, for the remaining 27 states in the country, such benefits are not yet seen. That is why West Virginia marijuana addiction treatment centers and the other 26 states continue to see increasing numbers of marijuana addictions.. Nevertheless, with or without medical marijuana legislations, the states many marijuana addiction treatment centers still have to provide the same kind of quality service that they are known for.. Generally, marijuana addiction treatment centers are similar in ...
Rhododendron tomentosum (syn. Ledum palustre), commonly known as marsh Labrador tea, northern Labrador tea or wild rosemary, is a flowering plant in the subsection Ledum of the large genus Rhododendron in the family Ericaceae. It is a low shrub growing to 50 cm (rarely up to 120 cm) tall with evergreen leaves 12-50 mm long and 2-12 mm broad. The flowers are small, with a five-lobed white corolla, and produced several together in a corymb 3-5 cm diameter. They emit strong smell to attract bees and other pollinating insects. In North America it grows in northern latitudes in Greenland, Canada, and Alaska, in Europe in the northern and central parts, and in Asia south to northern China, Korea and Japan. It grows in peaty soils, shrubby areas, moss and lichen tundra. All parts of the plant contain poisonous terpenes that affect the central nervous system. First symptoms of overdose are dizziness and disturbances in movement, followed by spasms, nausea, and unconsciousness.[citation needed] The mere ...

With a renewed emphasis on treating pain directed by the US Department of Health and Human Services in 19921 and institutionalized by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals in 2001,2 combined with the development of potent oral opioid pain medications, exponential increases in the annual number of opioid prescriptions written by US physicians have occurred over the past 2 decades.3 Between 1991 and 2012, the rate of "nonmedical use" (ie, use without a prescription or more than prescribed) of opioid medication by adolescents (12-17 years of age) and young adults (18-25 years of age) more than doubled,4,5 and the rate of opioid use disorders, including heroin addiction, increased in parallel.6 The rate of fatal opioid overdose more than doubled between 2000 and 2013.7 In 2008, more than 16 000 people died of opioid pain reliever overdose.7 Other serious adverse health outcomes result from intravenous drug use and include endocarditis,8 abscesses,9 and infection with hepatitis ...
Prescription of opioid medications for the treatment of chronic noncancer pain has become common. Chronic opioid therapy (COT) is complicated by balancing pain relief with the risk of misuse. Prescription opioids are the fastest growing form of drug abuse and the most common cause of unintentional overdose.1,2 Misuse of prescribed opioids may be an important link between rising rates of opioid-related abuse and overdoses.3,4. The National Institute for Drug Abuse defines prescription opioid misuse as "taking a medication in a manner other than that prescribed or for a different condition than that for which the medication is prescribed."5 Other definitions of opioid misuse exist. The addiction literature often focuses on such aberrant behavior as giving opioid medications to or getting them from others.6,7 In primary care settings, misuse is often defined as nonadherence, generally meaning taking more medication than prescribed and asking for early refills.8 ...

Recent evidence suggests that regular use of high-dose vitamin E may increase the risk of death (from "all causes") by a small amount. These conclusions have been criticized by some experts because they are based on re-calculations (meta-analyses) of the results of prior smaller studies, which were of mixed quality, with variable results, and often in patients with chronic illnesses. Nonetheless, this is the best available scientific evidence currently, and therefore chronic use of vitamin E should be used cautiously and high-dose vitamin E should be avoided. Acute overdose of vitamin E is very uncommon.. For short periods of time, vitamin E supplementation is generally considered safe at doses up to the recommended tolerable upper intake level (UL). However, vitamin E is possibly unsafe when used orally at doses exceeding the tolerable upper intake level. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) obtained through food consumption is considered to be safe and beneficial.. Skin reactions, such as ...

Persons dependent on opioids like heroin, morphine, or codeine have a high risk of relapse, overdose and overdose death. This risk is elevated even further following discharge from treatment or correctional institutions where patients have been detoxified. At the moment, state-of-the-art treatment is based on maintaining the dependence on opioids by daily intake of opioid medications like methadone or buprenorphine. Recently, a medication containing the blocking agent naltrexone was approved in the US; this does not maintain dependence but instead blocks heroin and other opioids for 28 days after intramuscular administration. This study will conduct a 12-week randomized comparison of naltrexone intramuscular suspension (XL-NTX) with daily buprenorphine-naloxone in OMT. Medication will start preceding discharge from a treatment or correctional facility to participating catchment regions in Norway. The main hypotheses are that XL-NTX will do equally well as - or better than - OMT on the proportion ...
The article/opinion has the nature of the drug epidemic all wrong.. Supplying dope to drug users is not treatment. Methadone and Suboxone are both highly addictive drugs, drugs that permit heroin users to modify their criminal drug behavior momentarily when they hit rock bottom, by supplanting Methadone or Suboxone for the heroin they love so much. When a heroin user can no longer steal enough to pay for the heroin they LOVE so much, they turn to FREE Methadone and FREE Suboxone.. Both Methadone and Suboxone are narcotic drugs, just like heroin. But heroin users love heroin much more. And the moment a heroin user can again manage to steal enough to buy more heroin, they will go right back to using heroin, because they LOVE heroin much more than they love Methadone or Suboxone.. The chemical love of heroin is common to all narcotic ...

And more on Lauren.... ............................ WASHINGTON, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Judie Brown, president of American Life League, released the following statement concerning an order by Delaware Court of Chancery Master Sam Glasscockon to give guardianship of Lauren Richardson to her mother, who wants to remove Laurens feeding tube.. Lauren is 23 years of age and, due to a heroin overdose, is now in a persistent vegetative state. At the time of the overdose, Lauren was expecting the birth of her baby and reports indicate that she was kept alive to allow her to give birth, which she did in February of last year. Her daughter is now about to celebrate her first birthday, but Lauren may never have another birthday.. Of interest is the fact that, during the pregnancy, Lauren relied on feeding tubes and a breathing machine to keep her alive. Today Lauren has a feeding tube only. But there is a struggle going on regarding whether or not Lauren will live or die.. Laurens case ...

A new law trying to stem the growing tide of opioid overdoses went into effect on Tuesday. Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced that trafficking the drug fentanyl is now a felony. Under the new law anyone found trafficking in fentanyl in amounts greater than 10 grams can face up to 20 years in state prison.. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, is estimated to be 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and 30 to 50 times more powerful than heroin, a release from the Attorney Generals office states. "Fentanyl is claiming the lives of people across our state. This new law gives law enforcement the tools they need to prosecute those who traffic this dangerous drug," Healey said. "More and more, law enforcement is finding heroin laced with this powerful synthetic opioid or being sold in its pure form. This new law will help us combat trafficking and help keep communities safe.". According to the release, predatory drug traffickers frequently mix ...
Opioid-related hospital stays involving misuse of prescription pain relievers or use of illicit opioids such as heroin increased nationwide by 64 percent between 2005 and 2014, according to an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) report that provides new insights into the nations costly opioid epidemic.. Although data indicate a significant increase in opioid-related hospital stays nationwide, the analysis shows that trends vary widely among states. Focusing on the most recent years of data available, Georgia, North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota and Washington State reported that opioid-related stay rates increased by at least 60 percent between 2009 and 2014. Meanwhile, rates decreased in Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, and Maryland and during the same period.. "These new data provide vital insights into the trends that are shaping one of the nations most pressing health challenges," said AHRQ Director Andy Bindman, M.D. "With updated information about state and regional variations ...
Yesterday, an article I wrote about Naloxone expansion on college campuses was published by HECAOD at Ohio State University. Naloxone is the name of the drug that is sold as Narcan by Amphastar Pharmaceuticals. Over the last three years, many states have pushed for its widespread use among emergency medical technicians and police officers. Thousands of lives have been saved by giving Narcan to people that are in the middle of an opiate overdose. Many officials, families and policy wonks have been advocating on behalf of Narcan for several years.. Last fall, Amphastar doubled the price of Narcan. It appeared to be a blatant money grab just at the moment that it was being used more. I appeared on NJTV in November of 2014, along with a police officer, to talk about the consequences from the price increase. The officer complained about how the price increase would put a strain on the towns budget and how it might limit its use. Other advocates throughout the country concurred. While I agreed ...
Nalorphine (INN) (brand names Lethidrone, Nalline), also known as N-allylnormorphine, is a mixed opioid agonist-antagonist with opioid antagonist and analgesic properties. It was introduced in 1954 and was used as an antidote to reverse opioid overdose and in a challenge test to determine opioid dependence. It acts at two opioid receptors - the μ-opioid receptor (MOR) where it has antagonistic effects, and at the κ-opioid receptor (KOR) (Ki = 1.6 nM; EC50 = 483 nM; Emax = 95%) where it exerts high-efficacy partial agonist/near-full agonist characteristics ...
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is taking aim at concurrent use of opioid medications and benzodiazepines. The federal agency announced Aug. 31 that it is requiring new boxed label warnings and patient-focused Medication Guides for nearly 400 prescription opioids, opioid-containing cough medicines and benzodiazepines.. The FDA added in its announcement that because of the unique medical needs of patients who receive medication-assisted treatment for opioid dependence, it will continue to review evidence on the effects of concurrent use of opioids for addiction with benzodiazepines.. An agency data review, coinciding with a petition signed by many state and local public health officials last February, found that the number of patients who were prescribed an opioid and a benzodiazepine jumped 41% from 2002-2014. In addition, overdose deaths involving both medication classes nearly tripled from 2004-2011.. "It is nothing ...
Tourette syndrome is a childhood-onset neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by multiple motor and vocal tics that last for at least a year in duration. Currently, there exist several effective pharmacological treatments for childhood tics including alpha-2 agonist medications (guanfacine and clonidine) and neuroleptics (antipsychotic) medications. These medications, however, have significant side-effects and are only partially efficacy in treating tics.. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a natural supplement that acts as an antioxidant and glutamate modulating agent. NAC has been used safely for decades in doses 20-40 times higher than in this trial as an antidote for acetaminophen overdose. The only side-effect commonly seen with NAC is nausea and this side-effect is seldom seen in the doses used in this trial.. NAC has recently been demonstrated to be effective in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in adults with trichotillomania (chronic hair pulling). Hairpulling is hypothesized to be ...
