Why does meth make you paranoid after taking your first hit?

Why does meth make you paranoid after taking your first hit?

Brain damage: Meth is a psychoactive drug and there is not reason for anyone to take it. If you are not brain-damaged before you take it, you will have brain damage after you take it.
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.

Hi, do you think I can drink wine while taking ciprofloxacin?

Hi, do you think I can drink wine while taking ciprofloxacin?

I discourage it: Alcohol is not a good drug when you are treating an infection. Also, I believe that when people ask questions about "can I drink beer" or "can I have wine" I don't think they are talking about 1-2 social drinks. Alcohol interferes with white blood cells working, slows healing and has many drug interactions. The doctor who prescribed it or pharmacist who filled it is who you should talk to. ...Read more

I have asked several times but never get a straight answer, please let me know if taking antibotics, will it slow meth leaving one's system?

I have asked several times but never get a straight answer, please let me know if taking antibotics, will it slow meth leaving one's system?

Probably not: The metabolic pathways for meth and other amphetamine derivatives is not fully understood but I find no antibiotics that effect their metabolism or excretion. However, medications or other substances that change the acid base balance in you r urine will definitely affect the thedetection rate and the rate of elimination of meth and its cousins from your body. ...Read more

No, no smoking!: Actually, Ciprofloxacin is a drug that can cause excitation of the nervous system. Nicotine, caffeine, and other stimulants can compound this side effect, so smoking is ill-advised, as well as any other forms of nicotine, such as patches or gum.... ...Read more

How long does cipro (ciprofloxacin) stay in your system after you've stopped taking it? I have a UTI and only one pill left but I'm not better.

Maybe resistent germ: If you are on your last pill of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and symptoms haven't improved, your infection may be resistant to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and related antibiotics. The doc who rx'ed the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may have sent a culture test to the lab, which can tell what other antibiotics would work best. Call that dr's office and they should be able to prescribe something else if necessary. ...Read more

Yes: Although yogurt should not be taken at the time you take ciprofloxacin, you can eat yogurt 2 hours before or 2 ours after taking it. Although probitoics may be killed by the medication, it is not harmful to take while on the medication. Taking probiotics after finishing the antibiotic is particularly helpful. ...Read more

My second day on 500 mg of flagyl and ciprofloxacin and I just vomited after taking the medication this morning. Is it too high of a dose for me?

Adverse reaction: Both ciprofloxacin and Flagyl(metronidazole) can cause nausea and vomiting, but it's more often a side effect of Flagyl. Try to contact the Dr who prescribed it to see if there is an alternative medication. Sometimes taking medication after a meal can reduce this side effect. Consult your physician for specific advice. ...Read more

I'm taking Ciprofloxacin 500 mg, is it okay to smoke weed? I took one yesterday and smoked but I read that these pills are bad for the nervous system

Wrong Question: Weed is bad for the nervous system, the brain, etc. As you can tell I'm not a proponent of its supposed medical uses. Take your medication, lay of the weed, once you are off your Cipro (ciprofloxacin) then do what you want. Dr. Google is not ever a good source of medical information. ...Read more

I'm taking cipro (ciprofloxacin) and im having fast heartbeat and anxiety I took my last pill today how long before the medicine wears off cus I'm very anxious.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin): I'm not a physician, but odd side effects can sometimes occur even with antibiotics and it is good to tell your doctor. Adverse events are supposed to be reported to the FDA, and you can file an event report. I had the sensation of smelling cigarette smoke 24 hours a day during 2 separate Cipro (ciprofloxacin) treatments. Wasn't listed in the PDR, but it was absolutely real, like an ABAB science design-it went aw ...Read more

Can taking psuedephedrine show up as meth in a drug test?

Yes, but only in: Screening tests, not in confirmatory tests. It does not show up as methamphetamine but rather as amphetamine itself.
