I need my co codamol on drink free nights to relax as can't deprive myself totally so is this ok?

Troubling: Your question suggests many red flags for dependency. You categorize your evenings as "drink free" or, I suppose, "drink ok" nights! And then you say you must have a narcotic (co-codamol is paracetamol and codeine, a narcotic) on the other nights. It's not ok ... confront the fact that this is a dependency problem and investigate ways to get help. We care..write back and let us know how it goes ...Read more

Girlfriend becoming isolated takes 3-4 500vicodin permanently  chronic pain daily 6 beers cigarettes not communicating with friends nor me, what to do?

Tough problem: If someone is becoming chemically dependent and depressed, and does not see there is a problem nor want to do anything about it, the only thing you can do is to help yourself. Try alanon, where you will find others struggling with the same issues. If there are supportive family members, you can discuss the possibilities of a family/friend intervention. Anger, guilt, shame are all normal. ...Read more

If u r on methadon 90mg an u get high off of heroine? I'm not asking because i'm an addict i'm concerned about someone else

If u r on methadon 90mg an u get high off of heroine? I'm not asking because i'm an addict i'm concerned about someone else

Not a good idea: Methadone and heroin can be lethal if combined. Dying from a big opiate dose can do the following: cardiopulmonary edema is a condition that causes fluid to pool around the lungs and heart, so the person can drown in their own fluids because oxygen can't get to the body. Also, aspiration and bacterial pneumonia could be another cause of death. Take your friend to the er. ...Read more

Could someone get addicted to apo lorazepam?

Could someone get addicted to apo lorazepam?

Yes and no: BTW the 'apo' is just a brand name and has nothing to do with the drug effects. Lorazepam (ativan) is a benzodiazepine, and all of these drugs cause physical dependency. Anybody taking these drugs regularly in enough of a dose long enough develops such dependency and drug must be tapered. Addiction is another matter entirely, and involves using drug for wrong reasons & inability to control it. ...Read more

I am on a roxicodine (4x 15mg daily) Opana (15mg 1xdaily) withdrawal because someone stole them.! is there any chance i could die from withdrawals?

Unlikely: You may take over the counter medications for pain relief. Make sure to not exceed the recommended doses. If you can manage without the medications that were stolen, you may look at it as a blessing. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Hi, i'm 36 years old , i'm prescribed aderall XR 120, wellbutrin (bupropion) 225 mg and ketamine. I take creatine, would creatine and ketamine be tough on kidneys?

New Ins. Refused prior auth on Ambien (zolpidem) 20mg prescription I have taken for years. I'm Suffering withdrawal, what can I do home remedies? Sweating, flushing, shaky

Touch base with doc: Ideally you should have some plan of action/management that you've come up with your doctor, like a slow taper off of Ambien (zolpidem). It's no surprise your insurance won't cover that dosing range as it's an off-label dose at this point. Nonprescription wise, you can utilize cold packs for the sweats, exercise, magnesium supplements and relaxing teas like chamomile but this will likely only help a bit. ...Read more

Please tell me, could i take co-codamol if i've had alchohol last night?

Probably: Co codamol is equivalent to tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is cleared through the liver. If you do not have liver problems it should be ok to use. You do not mention if your alcohol use is heavy or light. Heavy alcohol can cause liver issues, and should be evaluated and discussed with your MD to ensure safe use of medications including over the counter drugs. ...Read more
