I have anterior mitral valve prolapse and a kind of arrythmia will aloe crystals be bad for my health as I do drink a lot of medication.

Aloe and mitral v.: There are no indications for the use of aloe in your condition.

Which drug is worst for your health: crystal meth or heroin?

Which drug is worst for your health: crystal meth or heroin?

Meth: By far. It would be politically correct for me to tell you that both of these drugs are equally dangerous, but this is not true. Heroin will bind you to a lifelong addiction and all that is involved, but if you administer it hygienically and the dose is always correct, many users experience no problems except severe constipation and impotence. Meth is far more dangerous. Still better to do neither ...Read more

I was prescribed celexa&metoprolol to help my depression&anxiety. I've been trying to stay off crystal meth&what would happen if I mixed these drugs?

Safe: Its fine to take the two, just take them as prescribed. If you haven't already started the citalopram then you could have some side effects the first week or so but they shouldn't be bad, maybe a little headache, upset stomach or just feeling off for a few days. You need to watch the opiate use, are you taking all those at the same time? ...Read more

What pain medication can be taken for r.S.D.?

RSD, or: Complex regional pain syndrome can be difficult to treat and each patient needs to be treated differently. Opioid medications are definitely not the first option.

Consider topical ketamine creams as well. ...Read more
