Harm reduction: Australia as a case study. (1/995)

This paper explicates the term, "harm reduction"; demonstrates that harm reduction has a long tradition; and uses one country, Australia, as a case study. Harm reduction can be understood as "policies and programs which are designed to reduce the adverse consequences of mood altering substances without necessarily reducing their consumption"; it is consistent with the best traditions of both medicine and public health. Although it is difficult to interpret trends in mortality from alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs to determine whether harm reduction in Australia "worked", the effectiveness of harm-reduction policies and programs in controlling HIV among injecting drug users (IDUs) seems extremely strong and suggests that benefits of harm-reduction programs for other drugs will become apparent in time.  (+info)

Accuracy of five on-site immunoassay drugs-of-abuse testing devices. (2/995)

Many current "on-site" urine drug-testing products claim performance equivalent to laboratory testing. Five commercially available products (PharmScreen, Roche TestCup, Accusign DOA 2, Status DS, and American Bio Medica-Rapid Drug Screen) were challenged with quality-control specimens of known drug metabolite concentrations, 25% above and 25% below the SAMHSA cutoffs, and with known positive and negative donor specimens previously analyzed by immunoassay and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The results indicate discrepancies between claims and performance for all products, particularly with amphetamines. The implications for employer-based drug testing are discussed.  (+info)

Self-intoxication with morphine obtained from an infusion pump. (3/995)

A 36-year-old Caucasian male was found unresponsive by his wife. He had white foam around his mouth and was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. He had a history of back pain and was treated with intrathecal morphine because of his previous addiction to oral opiate medications. Because of crimping of the pump catheter, it was replaced 4 days before his death. Toxicological findings included urine screen positive for amitriptyline, nortriptyline, opiates, hydrocodone metabolites, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, caffeine, nicotine, and metabolite. Drug concentrations were as follows: blood, 0.260 mg/L amitriptyline, 0.160 mg/L nortriptyline, 0.460 mg/L unconjugated morphine, and 0.624 mg/L total morphine; vitreous humor, 0.034 mg/L unconjugated morphine and 0.080 mg/L total morphine; and cerebrospinal fluid, 0.099 mg/L unconjugated morphine and 0.095 mg/L total morphine. Shortly after death, the volume of the residual pump reservoir was only 8 mL instead of the expected 17 mL. Testing by the FDA showed that the pump was functional. The residual content of the pump accounted for only 230 mg instead of the expected 488 mg. The high blood-morphine concentrations did not correlate with the intrathecal infusion dose. The symptoms were consistent with opiate overdose, possibly by injection of morphine withdrawn from the pump reservoir. The cause of death was determined to be fatal morphine self-intoxication, and the manner of death was accidental. This case is intended to alert regulatory agencies, pain management health professionals, pathologists, and toxicologists to the abuse potential of one of the newer analgesic-delivery systems.  (+info)

Methadone dosing, heroin affordability, and the severity of addiction. (4/995)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to track changes in US heroin prices from 1988 to 1995 and to determine whether changes in the affordability of heroin were associated with changes in the use of heroin by users seeking methadone treatment, as indexed by methadone dose levels. METHODS: Data on the price of heroin were from the Drug Enforcement Administration; data on methadone doses were from surveys conducted in 1988, 1990, and 1995 of 100 methadone maintenance centers. Multivariable models that controlled for time and city effects were used to ascertain whether clinics in cities where heroin was less expensive had patients receiving higher doses of methadone, which would suggest that these patients had relatively higher physiological levels of opiate addiction owing to increased heroin use. RESULTS: The amount of pure heroin contained in a $100 (US) purchase has increased on average 3-fold between 1988 and 1995. The average dose of methadone in clinics was positively associated with the affordability of local heroin (P < .01). CONCLUSIONS: When heroin prices fall, heroin addicts require more methadone (a heroin substitute) to stabilize their addiction--evidence that they are consuming more heroin.  (+info)

The measurement of nitrite in adulterated urine samples by high-performance ion chromatography. (5/995)

With the increased availability of nitrite-containing commercial products that are used for the adulteration of urine samples in the workplace, it is necessary for laboratories to be able to detect and confirm the presence of nitrite in these samples. We have developed a method to confirm the presence of nitrite in urine samples. The method uses the IonPac AS 14 analytical column with the Dionex series 45001 Bio LC system equipped with an anion self-generating suppressor and conductivity detector. Using a single-point calibration, the method is linear and accurately quantitates nitrite to 12,000 microg/mL. The limit of detection is 30 microg/mL, and the day-to-day precision of the assay has a coefficient of variation (CV) of 4.3% at 1200 microg/mL and 3.8% at 2700 microg/mL of nitrite.  (+info)

Prevalence of drugs used in cases of alleged sexual assault. (6/995)

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of reports in the U.S. of the use of drugs, often in conjunction with alcohol, to commit sexual assault. A study was undertaken to assess the prevalence of drug use in sexual assault cases in which substances are suspected of being involved. Law enforcement agencies, emergency rooms, and rape crisis centers across the U.S. were offered the opportunity to submit urine samples collected from victims of alleged sexual assault, where drug use was suspected, for analysis of alcohol and drugs which may be associated with sexual assault. Each sample was tested by immunoassay for amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine metabolite (benzoylecgonine), cannabinoids, methaqualone, opiates, phencyclidine and propoxyphene. The positive screen results were confirmed by gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). In addition, each sample was tested for flunitrazepam metabolites and gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) by GC-MS and for ethanol by gas chromatography-flame ionization detection (GC-FID). Over a 26-month period, 1179 samples were collected and analyzed from 49 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. The states sending the most samples were California (183), Texas (119), Florida (61), Pennsylvania (61), New York (61), Minnesota (50), Illinois (47), Indiana (44), Michigan (40), Maryland (37), Virginia (32), and Massachusetts (31). Four-hundred sixty eight of the samples were found negative for all the substances tested; 451 were positive for ethanol, 218 for cannabinoids, 97 for benzoylecgonine, 97 for benzodiazepines, 51 for amphetamines, 48 for GHB, 25 for opiates, 17 for propoxyphene, and 12 for barbiturates. There were no samples identified as positive for phencyclidine or methaqualone. In addition, 35% of the drug-positive samples contained multiple drugs. This study indicates that, with respect to alleged sexual assault cases, the prevalence of ethanol is very high, followed by cannabinoids, cocaine, benzodiazepines, amphetamines, and GHB. Although only a couple of substances have been implicated with sexual assault, this study has shown that almost 20 different substances have been associated with this crime. This study also raises the concern of illicit and licit drug use in sexual assault cases and suggests the need to test for a range of drugs in these cases. It also highlights the need to test for GHB, which is not generally tested for in a normal toxicology screen.  (+info)

Nail analysis for drugs of abuse: extraction and determination of cannabis in fingernails by RIA and GC-MS. (7/995)

Fingernail clippings were evaluated as analytical specimens for the detection and quantitation of cannabinoids. Specimens were obtained from consenting adults attending a drug clinic, along with information concerning the drugs which they had used over the previous six months. Methods for the surface decontamination and extraction of the specimens were evaluated. Detergent, water, and methanol washes followed by alkaline hydrolysis and liquid-liquid extraction were selected for use in the study. Extracts were analyzed by radioimmunoassay (RIA) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to detect and quantitate cannabinoids present in fingernail clippings. Positive RIA results were obtained from specimens from six known cannabis users. The mean cannabinoid concentration in fingernail clippings determined by RIA was 1.03 ng/mg. Using GC-MS, the mean delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration in fingernail clippings from a further 14 known cannabis users was 1.44 ng/mg. Using GC-MS, the average 11-nor-delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol-9-carboxylic acid concentration in fingernail clippings from three known cannabis users extracted in acidic pH was 19.85 ng/mg. Based on these results, fingernails are potentially useful biological specimens for the detection of past cannabis use in cases of medicolegal interest.  (+info)

Procainamide inhibition of human hepatic degradation of cocaine and cocaethylene in vitro. (8/995)

Procainamide (PA), a cardioactive drug, inhibited the degradation of both cocaine (COC) and cocaethylene (CE) when either was incubated in human liver homogenates for 3 h at 37 degrees C. PA appeared to enhance the formation of CE when COC and ethanol (ETOH) were incubated together in liver homogenate. These observations are clinically significant because cardiotoxicity is common after COC abuse and because PA may be administered to individuals who use COC alone and with ETOH.  (+info)

The majority of street drugs, in some cases more than ninety-five percent, now have multiple toxic adulterants.

Objective Maternal recreational drug use may be associated with the development of fetal malformations such as gastroschisis, brain and limb defects, the aetiology due to vascular disruption during organogenesis. Using forensic hair analysis we reported evidence of recreational drug use in 18% of women with a fetal gastroschisis. Here we investigate this association in a variety of fetal malformations using the same method. Methods In a multi-centre study, women with normal pregnancies (controls) and those with fetal abnormalities (cases) gave informed consent for hair analysis for recreational drug metabolites using mass spectrometry. Hair samples cut at the root were tested in sections corresponding to 3 month time periods (pre and periconceptual period). Results Women whose fetus had gastroschisis, compared to women with a normal control fetus, were younger (mean age 23.78±SD4.79 years, 18-37 vs 29.79±SD6 years, 18-42, p = 0.00001), were more likely to have evidence of recreational drug use (15,
Certain street drugs such as poppers also can cause serious problems if taken with PDE5i medications. These poppers are often types of nitrates and can cause severe drops in blood pressure. Ecstasy is another street drug that may increase sexual desire but interferes with performance. This has prompted some men to combine ecstasy with PDE5i medications. This mixture (a combination sometimes called sextasy) can improve erection ability but also causes severe headache and priapism.

Downloadable! This paper provides an empirical test of the rational addiction model, used in economics to model individuals consumption of addictive substances, versus the utility misprediction model, used in psychology to explain the discrepancy between peoples decision and their subsequent experiences. By exploiting a unique data set of disadvantaged Australians, we provide longitudinal evidence that a drop in life satisfaction tends to precede the use of illegal/street drugs. We also find that the abuse of alcohol, the daily use of cannabis and the weekly use of illegal/street drugs in the past 6 months relate to lower current levels of life satisfaction. This provides empirical support for the utility misprediction model. Further, we find that the decrease in life satisfaction following the consumption of illegal/street drugs persists 6 months to a year after use. In contrast, the consumption of cigarettes is unrelated to life satisfaction in the close past or the near future. Our results, though
Experts dont know exactly why this type of drug abuse is increasing. The availability of drugs is probably one reason. Doctors are prescribing more drugs for more health problems than ever before. Online pharmacies make it easy to get prescription drugs without a prescription, even for youngsters. Some people experiment with prescription drugs because they think they will help them have more fun, lose weight, fit in, and even study more effectively. Prescription drugs can be easier to get than street drugs: Family members or friends could have a prescription. But prescription drugs are also sometimes sold on the street like other illegal drugs. A 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health showed that among all youths aged 12 to 17, 6% had tried prescription drugs for recreational use in the last month.. Why? Some people think that prescription drugs are safer and less addictive than street drugs. After all, these are drugs that moms, dads, and even kid brothers and sisters use. To Angie, ...
Whether theyre using street drugs or medications, drug abusers often have trouble at school, at home, with friends, or with the law. The likelihood that someone will commit a crime, be a victim of a crime, or have an accident is higher when that person is abusing drugs - no matter whether those drugs are medications or street drugs.. Like all drug abuse, using prescription drugs for the wrong reasons has serious risks for a persons health. Opioid abuse can lead to vomiting, mood changes, decrease in ability to think (cognitive function), and even decreased respiratory function, coma, or death. This risk is higher when prescription drugs like opioids are taken with other substances like alcohol, antihistamines, and CNS depressants.. CNS depressants have risks, too. Abruptly stopping or reducing them too quickly can lead to seizures. Taking CNS depressants with other medications, such as prescription painkillers, some over-the-counter cold and allergy medications, or alcohol can slow a persons ...

For starters, most users already know theyre getting fentanyl, and more and more have developed a taste for the strong rush it provides-as shown by feedback from my sources and research assistants, as well as the increasing prevalence of fentanyl-only results. Two people have told me that they use fentanyl strips to confirm the presence of the drug, rather than avoid it. One might ask, whats the point of testing heroin that will almost universally produce a positive result for fentanyl, when people are going to use the drugs regardless?. There is also some suspicion that the strips may be too sensitive. One month, every time I tested a particular brand of powder cocaine, it came out positive. But no one seemed to notice. I saw numerous people with established opioid tolerance inject the powder, mainly as a component of speedballing, without overdose.. All the same, for people who use heroin or other drugs, test strips still represent a chance to make an informed choice. Test-strip provision, ...

Treatment Challenges in People with HIV Who Use Illicit Drugs. Injection drug use is the second most common mode of HIV transmission in the United States. In addition, noninjection illicit drug use may facilitate sexual transmission of HIV. Injection and noninjection illicit drugs include the following: heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and club drugs (i.e., methamphetamine, ketamine, gamma-hydroxybutyrate [GHB], and amyl nitrate [i.e., poppers]). The most commonly used illicit drugs associated with HIV infection are heroin and stimulants (e.g., cocaine and amphetamines); however, the use of club drugs has increased substantially in the past several years and is common among individuals who have HIV infection or who are at risk of HIV infection. The association between club drugs and high-risk sexual behavior in men who have sex with men (MSM) is strongest for methamphetamine and amyl nitrate; this association is less consistent with the other club drugs.1. Illicit drug use has been associated with ...
Injection and other illicit drug use plays a major role in the transmission of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), including cases among infants, children, and adolescents.1,2 Transmission to adolescents and adults occurs either directly from contaminated drug paraphernalia, including needles and syringes, or through sexual contact with an infected partner. Transmission to infants occurs transplacentally or perinatally from mothers who are most often either drug users themselves, or who have become infected from sexual partners who are injection drug users. It is therefore clear that a reduction in the transmission of HIV infection secondary to illicit drug use and the use of contaminated injection equipment is a pediatric concern and should be part of any prevention program.. The adverse consequences of illicit drug use are multiple and certainly not limited to the potential acquisition and transmission of HIV infection. Ideally, treatment and prevention programs should seek to ...

A mother taking illegal drugs during pregnancy increases her risk for anemia, blood and heart infections, skin infections, hepatitis, and other infectious diseases. She also is at greater risk for sexually transmitted diseases. Almost every drug passes from the mothers bloodstream through the placenta to the fetus. Illicit substances that cause drug dependence and addiction in the mother also cause the fetus to become addicted.. A laboratory test, called a chromatography, performed on a womans urine can detect many illegal drugs, including marijuana and cocaine. Both marijuana and cocaine, as well as other illegal drugs, can cross the placenta. Marijuana use during pregnancy may be linked to behavioral problems in the baby. Cocaine use can lead to miscarriage, preterm delivery of the fetus, premature detachment of the placenta, ...

Drugs promoted by major manufacturers often wind up on the street, bought and sold like any other illicit substance. The pattern isnt new: Heroin, notorious for the hundreds of thousands it has enslaved, was for years widely promoted by Eli Lilly and Company for medicinal purposes-a treatment for coughs. Today, along with the other deadly substances it resembles, Ritalin is one of the most widely abused street drugs, taken by tablet or injected.

Delaware County Medical Examiner Dr. Fredric Hellman said toxicology results returned on March 19 indicated that the recent death of a 30-year-old Marcus Hook woman was the result of the intravenous administration of pure Fentanyl. The name on the packet is Black Dahlia, and the substance was packaged in a blue glassine packet with red lettering. According to Dr. Hellman, this is the first case in 2014 involving a death from pure Fentanyl. Fentanyl can come in the form of powder, pill or patch and has been known to be snorted or injected into the bloodstream. Authorities are warning the community that the use of this lethal drug will result in death ...

Cold weather has meant more B.C. illicit drug users overdose alone at home, in public washroom stalls or on deserted streets, pushing B.C.s highest-ever drug death total to new heights.. The isolation of drug users, and the likely introduction of even more lethal synthetic opioids into the street drug supply, contributed to 128 B.C. overdose deaths in November, provincial health officials said Monday. That brings the total deaths in B.C. to 755 for the year, up 70 per cent from last year, with little relief in sight for December.. We are seeing people die with a naloxone kit open beside then, and they havent had time to use it, said Lisa Lapointe, B.C.s Chief Coroner, referring to the overdose treatment that has been made widely available.. By the end of December, the B.C. government expects to have 18 overdose prevention sites open in high-risk areas, including Surrey, Victoria, Prince George, Kelowna, Kamloops, Maple Ridge, Langley, Abbotsford and Vancouver..

TUESDAY, Sept. 17 (HealthDay News) -- Street drugs called bath salts were linked to nearly 23,000 emergency department visits in the United States in 2011, a new report says.. Bath salts are amphetamine-like stimulants that have become increasingly popular among recreational drug users in recent years. Despite the name, these synthetic drugs have nothing to do with the crystals you might sprinkle in a bathtub.. The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) report, released Tuesday, is the first national study to look at bath salts-related emergency department visits since the drugs appeared a few years ago.. Although bath salts drugs are sometimes claimed to be legal highs or are promoted with labels to mask their real purpose, they can be extremely dangerous when used, Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, SAMHSAs chief medical officer, said in an agency news release. Bath salts drugs can cause heart problems, high blood pressure, seizures, addiction, suicidal ...
[...] offstage, coughs from the common cold or bronchitis are no laughing matter (though they arent usually life-threatening), and neither is the codeine and other ingredients found in cough meds. Cough meds are, unfortunately, a major source of recreational drug abuse for teens. Chronic abuse of codeine-laced prescription cough meds can damage your brains white matter, where nerve fibers live. [...] there are around 125 over-the-counter products containing dextromethorphan, which when super-dosed produces hallucinations and dissociative episodes like the street drugs PCP or special K (ketamine). Try 2 teaspoons 30 minutes before bedtime, as well as steaming, drinking hot tea and using a purified water and saline nasal spray - a neti pot is one of our favorite choices, but it must be kept clean and sterile.
Madam Speaker, I am pleased to speak in support of Bill C-224, the good Samaritan drug overdose act. I thank the member for Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam for presenting this important piece of legislation. He has certainly worked very hard.. When I first read through the bill, I have to admit that I was a bit concerned. We are currently facing one of the worst drug epidemics that our nation has ever seen, and that is with regard to the opioid crisis. The combination of diverted pharmaceuticals, veterinary tranquillizers, and illicit drugs has created a very deadly mix of street drugs.. This past week in my riding of Lethbridge, 777 fentanyl pills were seized by the police in two separate drug raids. This is impacting every single nook and cranny within my community.. Having said that, many Canadians would agree that we need to tackle the root factors that are causing this epidemic. I agree with that. This is why we definitely need tougher laws to get drug dealers off the streets, and certainly not ...
Roxys, slang for Roxicodone - a brand name for the generic oxycodone, is basically heroin in a pill form. It is an opioid, narcotic painkiller that is highly addictive. Roxys can be swallowed, smoked, crushed and snorted, or mixed with water and injected - all just like heroin.. Roxys Worse than Heroin: Social Acceptance. What makes roxys worse than heroin, in a way, is their social acceptance. Roxicodone and Roxicet are legal by prescription whereas heroin is a known illicit street drug. People who are prescribed roxys by their doctors are more likely to follow doctors orders without asking questions about the drug they are being given. Roxicodone is a powerfully potent narcotic that has the same incidence of addictiveness as heroin.. Roxys Worse than Heroin: Accessibility. Roxy is arguably worse than heroin because it is a lot more accessible than heroin. Whereas heroin is only available on the street, roxys can be found in many home medicine cabinets. More and more high school students and ...

Fentanyl overdose fatalities in America continue to increase, leaving a path of heartbreak with no sign of stopping in the immediate future. Our region has been touched too frequently with nearly 40 deaths in North Dakota from drug overdoses since the start of 2014, nine of which were in Grand Forks County.. Fentanyl is the most powerful opioid available to doctors and is intended to treat extreme pain and late-stage severe illness. Fentanyl in an illicit form is finding its way into street drugs, most commonly heroin. This illicit drug is being manufactured in covert labs and sold on the street in extremely potent forms - 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine, and an amount the size of three grains of salt can kill you.. ...

Drug overdose cases continue at high levels as an emergency order to report them immediately takes effect for hospitals, paramedics, police and firefighters across B.C.. Health Minister Terry Lake said Thursday there were 56 overdose cases reported in April, and the province has seen an average of 60 a month since January. Half of those cases are related to fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid increasingly showing up in street drugs.. People dont know theyre taking it, and its 100 times more powerful than other opioids, Lake said.

tained from batteries. According to the World Drug Report 2017, 255million people took some form of drug in just 2015, 190 000 of which died mostly from overdoses.. Just like natural rewards-food, chronic drug use activates the brains reward system, causing intense feelings of well-being, and sets it in a mode where it is always craving for more, leading to addiction. Simultaneously, drug addicts also experience tolerance, a phenomenon in which they need increasing doses to achieve their initial high. The person soon develops physical and psychological dependence, whereby abrupt discontinuation of the drugs causes unpleasant physical symptoms and emotional withdrawal responses like uneasiness, dissatisfaction, anxiety, depression, insomnia among others. Street drugs users will experience ecstatic peaks of euphoria then drop straight to the depths of despair and craving- ultimately they may be left to carry brain damage for the rest of their lives.. Among the legal drugs available, alcohol and ...
Prescription drug and misuse and abuse and alcoholism are much more of an issue for seniors than abuse of hard street drugs like heroin or cocaine. Being aware of the primary classes of medicines that lead to dependence or addiction can be helpful:. Opioids: Opioids are used to treat pain. Common opioids include oxycodone (the active ingredient in Percocet and Oxycontin), hydrocodone (the active ingredient in Vicodin and Norco) and numerous other related medicines such as morphine, codeine, hydromorphone and fentanyl. Opioids are a vital tool for pain management, but carry clear risks of dependence and addiction. The number of fatal opioid over doses has risen dramatically over the last decade.. Benzodiazepines: Benzodiazepines are a class of medicines primarily used to treat anxiety, panic disorders, insomnia - and can also be used to treat bipolar disorder and even epilepsy. Common benzodiazepines include diazepam (Valium), alprazolam (Xanax), lorazepam (Ativan) and clonazepam (Klonopin). This ...
A nationwide push to relax drug laws took a significant step forward Tuesday as voters made Oregon the first state to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of street drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Meanwhile, five more states legalized marijuana for adults.. The drug measures were among 120 proposed state laws and constitutional amendments that were on the ballot in 32 states. They touched on an array of issues that have roiled politics in recent years - voting rights, racial inequalities, abortion, taxes and education, to name a few.. But none directly dealt with the dominant theme of 2020 - the coronavirus pandemic. Thats because the process to put measures on the ballot began, in most cases, before the virus surged to the forefront.. The Oregon drug initiative will allow people arrested with small amounts of hard drugs to avoid going to trial, and possible jail time, by paying a $100 fine and attending an addiction recovery program. The treatment centers will be ...
Heroin addiction has been sweeping the United States. This guide covers the withdrawal symptoms and facts surrounding the street drug heroin.
One day, we will finally get tired of worrying about if people get high. Most Americans think we are losing the war on drugs. I submit the reason is that we focus on the wrong objective. It is not the prerogative of government to govern your body. You and your doctor know if you are in pain and how best to treat it. The Attorney General and Police do not. I believe the best way to end the violence, funding of terrorism and narco-gangs and poisoning of our children is to attack the hard core street drugs while allowing people safer alternatives. The attack on Delaware doctors who are dealing with those in chronic pain for the fear that people might be getting safe and cheap alternatives to unsafe drugs cut with various substances on the streets, is hurting those who suffer from chronic pain. Read this story from the USA Today. I have seen this with my own eyes. The drug policy of Read more ...
Skin popping is any of several routes of administration whereby street drugs are injected or deposited under the skin. It is usually a depot injection, either subcutaneous or intradermal, although the term is rarely (and inaccurately) applied to intramuscular injection. After deposition, the drug then diffuses slowly from the depot into the capillary networks, where it enters circulation. Skin popping is distinct from intravenous injection in that the latter deposits the drug directly into the bloodstream via a vein. Higher-potency prescription opioids, such as morphine, fentanyl, or meperidine can be injected subcutaneously, as can cocaine. Skin popping increases the duration of the high one gets from drugs such as cocaine. The sites where skin popping with cocaine has been performed have an area of central pallor surrounded by bruising (ecchymosis). This pattern is due to the vasoconstrictive properties of cocaine acting locally at the injection site with hemorrhage occurring in the ...
Explorer86. You are repeating some of the worst lies promoted by Big Pharma and the Pain Industry. The 75% figure is referring to newly addicted people introduced to heroin after first developing an opioid dependency via prescribed pain drugs. The prescribed pain drugs will inevitably become more difficult to obtain from doctors and no longer provide enough of a drug effect. As an alternative, heroin and other related street drugs became more easily accessible and are cheaper to purchase. And when heroin becomes not enough to get the right effect or too expensive given the amounts needed, thats when people add benzos which creates the perfect storm of addiction that more often than not leads to death from overdose.. The 1% figure (you repeat above) developing a problem with pain drugs, is pure fiction and pharmaceutical propaganda. Long term use of opioid drugs will almost always lead to dependency and/or addiction issues and will often lead to people actually becoming MORE sensitive to pain ...
Yes, this is extremely dangerous and down the road you may end up with very serious consequences due to your choice of self-medication. When youre diagnosed with ADD by a doctor, medications are prescribed in specific doses that are safe and effective. You can also rest assured that the chemicals in the prescribed medication to treat ADD are safe unlike meth thats bought on the street.. Follow-ups with the doctor to make sure there are no negative effects from the medication and that youre receiving the proper dose are equally important. Street drugs such as meth are very dangerous because you dont know whats actually in it. There are so many dangerous, toxic, and lethal chemicals that are used when producing meth you may not see the signs but Ill bet others can.. Even though you may disagree, you are probably dependent on meth now and it has positively taken a toll on your body even if you dont see it. Please seek the help of a professional for the treatment of your ADD, I promise you ...

According to the survey, about 23 million Americans need help with alcohol or drug addiction or abuse. The drugs include street drugs and abused medical drugs that require a prescription.

Wine, beer, distilled spirits and other alcoholic drinks contain ethyl alcohol and alcohol consumption has short-term psychological and physiological effects on the user. Different concentrations of alcohol in the human body have different effects on a person. The effects of alcohol depend on the amount an individual has drunk, the percentage of alcohol in the wine, beer or spirits and the timespan that the consumption took place, the amount of food eaten and whether an individual has taken other prescription, over-the-counter or street drugs, among other factors. Alcohol in carbonated drinks is absorbed faster than alcohol in non-carbonated drinks.[15]. Drinking enough to cause a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.03-0.12% typically causes an overall improvement in mood and possible euphoria, increased self-confidence and sociability, decreased anxiety, a flushed, red appearance in the face and impaired judgment and fine muscle coordination.

Persons with depression and HIV must overcome stigma associated with both illnesses. Despite the enormous advances in brain research in the past 20 years, the stigma of mental illness remains. Even people who have access to good health care often fail or refuse to recognize their depression and seek treatment.. Depression is a disease that affects how a person relates to people around them, and if left untreated, can cause relationships to deteriorate. Some people respond to depression by becoming angry and abusive to people who care about them, or children who depend on them. Many choose to treat their depression themselves with alcohol or street drugs, which can quicken HIVs progression to AIDS. Others turn to herbal remedies. Recently scientists have discovered that St. Johns wort, an herbal remedy sold over-the-counter to treat mild depression, reduces blood levels of the protease inhibitor indinavir (Crixivan®) and probably the other protease inhibitors as well.

By deleting the REDD1 gene in mice, researchers from Yale University were able to block the synaptic and behavioral deficits caused by stress.. Ketamine, an anesthetic sometimes abused as a street drug, increases the synaptic connections between brain cells and in low doses acts as a powerful antidepressant, Yale researchers have found. However, stress has the opposite effect, shrinking the number of synaptic spines, triggering depression.. In the April 13 online issue of the journal Nature Medicine, Yale researchers found that expression of single gene called REDD1 enables stress to damage brain cells and cause depressive behavior.. We found if we delete REDD1, we can block the effects of stress in mice, said Ron Duman, the Elizabeth Mears and House Jameson Professor of Psychiatry and professor of neurobiology.. In recent studies, the Yale team showed that ketamine activates the mTORC1 pathway, which in turn spurs synthesis of synaptic proteins and connections. In the new study, they show ...
