I know a female who's taken meth, coke, opium, acid, and other drugs. How will that affect her kids if she has kids one day? She's in treatment now.

Parenting & Presence: The most important thing is that if you take drugs, you can't be present to the needs of your kids when you're stoned. If she gets into recovery she will have a good chance to be a more present parent and a role model for future children. Hope this answer helps. ...Read more

What are the treatment of methamphetamine withdrawal syndrome?

What are the treatment of methamphetamine withdrawal syndrome?

There aren't any: In part because there is no true withdrawal syndrome. If people have been using methamphetamine, particularly in high dose binges, there is a "crash" that occurs after several days of use associated with fatigue, excessive sleep and overeating. It is self-limited and goes away after a couple days, followed by increasing craving for meth. Topirimate, a seizure drug, has helped to reduce craving. ...Read more

Can smoking meth cause rashes can it come out pores?

Can smoking meth cause rashes can it come out pores?

Yes and no: Yes, meth can cause skin rash. No, it doesn't come out your pores. The skin has LOTS of capillaries which carry the meth all through your skin. That can cause an immune reaction in the skin or change its structure leading to chronic skin inflammation or infection that can be lifelong. Experienced doctors, police etc know what meth rash looks like. It's like tattooing "meth head" on your forehead. ...Read more

Being a IV heroin addict I used methamphetimine to cure withdrawal symptoms. It worked but I don't get high off the meth. Able to eat and sleep. Why?

No clue: But I wish you were more concerned with dealing with your addictions than blocking withdrawal symptoms. I have treated MANY people who used both heroin and methamphetamine, and none of them said that amphetamine did anything beneficial for their withdrawal, so it may be just your particular biology. Most use speed to stay awake for the heroin high, or use heroin to take the edge off the speed. ...Read more
