Does Suboxone cause permanent brain damage?

Does Suboxone cause permanent brain damage?

Not permanent: Brain damage is not the word i would use. Opiate addiction in general can cause long lasting changes to the brain. Suboxone is a type of opiate and completely stopping it can be difficult without other forms of support. It takes time, "months" for the brain to recover. Things such as stress or "triggers" even months to years down the road could cause cravings, possible relapse, meetings help! ...Read more

Can minimal exposure to cigarette smoke cause permanent brain damage?

Probably not measure: Cigarette smoke affects the lungs, bladder, heart and blood vessels.

The toxic effects of smoking are so obvious that quitting is the only rational pathway. ...Read more

How much alcohol must an adolescent have to consume to cause permanent brain damage or developmental problems?

Individual Levels: There is no one answer to this, since each individual is different. However, teenagers should not drink alcohol for a very good reason: their brains are still developing. If you add toxins (e.g., alcohol, nicotine from cigarettes, etc.) to a growing brain, you're only doing it harm. ...Read more

Will one isolated incidence of acute intoxication (10+ standard drinks) cause permanent brain damage in a youth with no previous binge drinking habits

Will one isolated incidence of acute intoxication (10+ standard drinks) cause permanent brain damage in a youth with no previous binge drinking habits

Growing brain: Brain is still growing in teenagers and young brain provided given the correct nutrition can heal the damage. Do a cleanse to heal liver and gall bladder. Acute intoxication is a transient phenomenon. Intensity of intoxication lessens with time, and effects eventually disappear in the absence of further use of the substance. Recovery is therefore complete except where tissue damage exists. ...Read more

Can iron anemia cause permanent brain damage? Iron:15, rbc#-7.54. Memory bad, not subconsiously making associations, but have to do it actively

Can iron anemia cause permanent brain damage? Iron:15, rbc#-7.54. Memory bad, not subconsiously making associations, but have to do it actively

Unlikely: The numbers you provided not meaningful. It is unlikely that your RBC was 7.54, may be it was hemoglobin. Even if you hemoglobin was down to 7.5, it would not cause any permanent damage to the brain or any other organ. I trust you are seeing doctor. If not start taking oral iron and multivitamins while waiting for an appointment. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Can oxygen deprivation from wearing a very tight neck tie cause permanent brain damage? I recently wore a very tight tie for 24 hours straight because I fell  asleep on a couch. Also, can holding your breath cause permanent brain damage?

Very unlikely: Although you were wearing a tight tie, I seriously doubt you were at risk of strangulation. Holding your breath might cause you to faint, but I doubt you could cause brain damage that way either. However, I wonder about the source of your concerns. Could you benefit from some counseling? Let us know. ...Read more
