I used cocaine 8 hours ago is it safe for me to take my suboxone. please don't lecture about the cocaine one time usage?

I used cocaine 8 hours ago is it safe for me to take my suboxone. please don't lecture about the cocaine one time usage?

Short half life: Cocaine has a short half-life in the body of about 1 hour, which means that by 8 hours the body has probably metabolised most of it. However if cocaine is used often, the metabolism can slow and it can remain in the system for longer. It is never a wise idea to mix opiate drugs like suboxone with recreational drugs, as this can cause death (see: numerous dead celebrities). Wait longer to be safe. ...Read more

You should be clear after 4-7 days with one time use. Keep in mind that there have been deaths associated with cocaine use ie heart attack and stroke. ...Read more

I used cocaine one time only, a very small amount. Will it affect my sperm and how long should I wait before trying to become pregnant?

I had over 70 puffs of crack cocaine one time in one night when i was 12 weeks pregnant and i never and wont have it again. Is my unborn baby affected?

Hard to know: Doing Cocaine in any form while pregnant can harm your baby, but it's hard to know how your baby is without watching its development or seeing how it is when born. Sometimes there might be no physical changes, but there can be behavioral problems that show themselves later. I hope you're successful in staying away from cocaine. Asking your doctor for help with this might be a good idea. ...Read more

At least 36-48 hrs: To clear from breast milk, 2 days. But for drug testing, most recommend 3 - 5 days to be absolutely sure. I'm so glad you say it's a one time thing.

For your own emotional stability and the benefits of breastfeeding you are correct to avoid it. ...Read more

Can one time moderate use of cocaine lead to permanent brain damage, memory problems or cognitive impairment?

Death = permanent: In some, the first use of Cocaine causes death, which would be permanent brain damage or impairment. Not to mention heart attacks, respiratory failure, strokes, or seizures. In the brain alone, Cocaine is a very strong CNS stimulant that stops Dopamine from being recycled -- making it build up and disrupt normal neuronal communication. If you're dead, the long-term brain changes don't matter. ...Read more

In : In the state of florida, the marchman act addresses getting help for individuals with serious problems with substance abuse, who are not open to treatment. This law can help families through the courts to get loved ones into court ordered and court monitored "intervention assessment stabilization, or detoxification, and long-term treatment". A family member can petition the court . Under the baker act, which is specific for psychiatric conditions, even if he has known psychiatric diagnoses, his doctor can only detain him against his will for a brief period unless there is court intervention and he is deemed to be at imminent risk to self or others. I suggest you obtain legal advice. Additionally, do not remain in the home iwith your spouse if you are afraid that you or your son are in danger. You can ask the police who intervened for local contact information regarding domestic violence advocacy. If is important that a safety plan be developed. "knights of kindness" lists a number of florida resources that may be beneficial. ...Read more
