Dear doctors, please tell me if I had cocaine 1 week before the drug tests and weed daily until 2 weeks before the tests, what can I do to pass? It is a preemployment test, is that a urin test or can be saliva etc? Many thanks
Although I'm sure i'd be wasting my breath telling you to quit these habits as they are not healthy, self destructive and...Expensive.
With that being said...You need to stop using or even inhaling (pot smoke) for at least4 weeks. It is not only blood, urine & saliva test you need to worry about. Many employers are now also demanding hair samples. And the stuff you use, remains for a long time. ...Read more
Doctors and Drug use:
They may be very suspicious but would have other explanations. A good physician would feel free to ask if this is suspected. It is so much better not to lie about this. Especially to your physician.
Medicine is not perfect, but addiction is a disease and your drug use, if it comes up, should be dealt with in a non-judgemental and respectful manner. ...Read more

16 year old cousin has been using cocaine. Her mother is taking her to their family doc today to get help for her. How do family docs respond to this?
Rehab referral: Probably by helping her to find some rehab/therapy options; most often starting as an outpatient.

Why would a doctor prescribe my friend Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) when he has heavily abused Adderall ritalin and illegal amphetamines like cocaine and meth?
UNINFORMED: I would wonder if your "friend" has been honest about the medications that have been abused. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a prodrug and is not active if snorted ot injected. Still it is an amphetamine. Your friend will eventually be caught as there are more and more externally systems that monitor for doctor shopping and drug abuse. ...Read more

I want to go to my therapist once a month. Can I tell her that I am a kleptomaniac and that I tried cocaine?
Once a month is: Pretty ineffective for any kind of therapy. Generally, if there are significant psychological/emotional problems, the MINIMUM would be once weekly, and even more may be warranted. Unless you are feeling cravings for using Cocaine again, am not sure that the fact you "tried" Cocaine is all that relevant, but kleptomania certainly is. A therapist can't help if you don't tell them the truth. ...Read more

SIGH: I wonder if people are truly living in a giant bubble with no access to any information from the outside world! Other than heart attack, sudden death, strokes, chronic heart damage, brain damage, permanent psychosis, severe depression, infections from injection (including aids, hep c and many others) and horrible toxic effects from a cutting agent (levamisole), it's perfectly fine. Lots more too. ...Read more

First, if you have never tried cocaine... Don't.
This is one of the most powerful "feel good" drug known. If you are addicted to it get professional help right away. There is no well accepted, safe "positive alternative" available. Addiction is treatable but relapse with Cocaine is all too common. Avoid having a miserable lifetime for seeking a few minutes of drug induced false happiness. ...Read more
Can you tell me if a small line of cocaine was snorted early sunday morning, will it show up positive on a urine test thursday morning?
Probably not: But I would be more concerned that you are snorting cocaine, and worrying more about the consequences of getting caught than you are about the consequences of using cocaine, particularly at your age. Cocaine is a dangerous drug at ANY age, but with age over 40, the cardiovascular effects (heart attacks, heart arrhythmias, sudden death) and cerebral effects (stroke) become far more common. ...Read more
