I used flurazepam for 4 days . But now I have new job and one of the conditions is a urine drug  test. For how long can flurazepam be detected ?

Usually gone soon: The benzodiazepines are usually gone from the blood after light use in a few days. If this actually is detected, consider simply fessing up and say you took a friend's sleeping pill -- Flurazepam isn't one of the much-abused meds, though of course it's not wise to take it unprescribed. Good luck with your job. ...Read more

I have blurry vision take belladonna alkaloids for ab pain, celiac.But vidion worse.Am 50.Take armour thyroid, dalmane (flurazepam).Whats cause?

Vision after 50: Loss of reading vision occurs in most people between 40 and 50 and is due to presbyopia. Reading glasses are in order. Belladonna used commonly for stomach problems exaggerates this phemenon. If your vision is blurry in the daistance as well you are probably far sighted and need distance glasses as well.

A small word: with a universe of meanings. "In love" is an obsessive infatuation. It feels great but it's overrated as being 'true love.' Mature love is different.

The great teachers agree: Love yourself and love the other just as much. ...Read more
