I only smoked one pot, how can I get it outta my system?

I only smoked one pot, how can I get it outta my system?

A few days: Since you don't have heavy exposure, if you do test positive, it won't be high for long and they might perhaps believe it's from passive smoking. Heavier use will accumulate in your body fat and it will take much longer to lose your positivity. If cannabis is still proscribed where you live / work, it's best avoided. Why use something that makes people silly? ...Read more

I smoked a gram of weed lastnight for the first time in 3 months. Can I get it outta my system in 19 days?

I smoked a gram of weed lastnight for the first time in 3 months. Can I get it outta my system in 19 days?

Maybe, maybe not: Studies find that marijuana can be detected in the blood up to 3 weeks, and in the urine up to 3 months, depending on the person, the amount used, and his frequency of smoking mj. In frequent users, mj is detectable for a long time. With infrequent, occasional users, mj may be out of the body after a few days in some instances. Mj brownies are probably detectable for similar durations as smoking. ...Read more

Klonopin: Klonopin is a long acting tranquilizer and after taking it regularly for 7 years I would expect withdrawal symptoms if it was abruptly discontinued. These could be seizures, shakes, irritability, anxiety or other personality changes. Check with the social workers at the local hospital to see if you can be seen in a volunteer or free clinic. If you have any of the abovementioned symptoms go to ER ...Read more

So I'm outta kholnopin and I was, taking 0.5 for 3 years 1 at night I'm scared I'm going to have a sezurie or something is that possible?

So I'm outta kholnopin and I was, taking 0.5 for 3 years 1 at night I'm scared I'm going to have a sezurie or something is that possible?

"or something...": Taken alone, discontinuing 0.5 mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) is unlikely to provoke a seizure. However, if there is an underlying seizure tendency or other changes also then maybe. If you have been taking a sedative/anticonvulsant for 3 years and then stop it you might certainly have "or something" as a result. Why did you stop it? What has changed? Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I have been really down lately and I have to fake be happy. I can't seem to get outta this funk I'm in. All I do is sleep. What can I do to feel bette?

See your PCP: You are obviously depressed, what you describe as being in a funk. There may be situational reasons or no specific reason but due to some chemical imbalance in the brain. There are many effective medications to improve your mood, and counseling may also help. Your family physician can evaluate you and start treatment if you wish. A medication called bupropion may help energize you. ...Read more

It depends: There are a number of ways to remove an ovarian cyst. Today, the cyst is usually removed using a laparoscope. If this is the method used, you could probably return to work on monday, but I wouldnot lift anything over 10 lbs for a couple of weeks. If a slightly larger incision is made, recovery can take 2 to 6 weeks, but at your age, I would guess the lesser time. ...Read more
