Can meth make your breath smell?

Can meth make your breath smell?

Bad breath and meth: Teeth and gums need blood to stay healthy. Methamphetamines cause the vessels that supply blood to oral tissues to shrink in size. The reduction in blood flow will cause the tissues to break down. Over time the blood flow can not recover and the tissue will become necrotic (dead) and induce bad breath. Also the lack of oral hygiene can contribute to periodontal disease and bad smell. ...Read more

Every time I smoke meth I get nose sores can I do anything to help it?

Every time I smoke meth I get nose sores can I do anything to help it?

Yes: Sure. Never touch the stuff again. Meth is not necessary for life. Meth is not required for anything. Be strong enough to never associate with people who use it or sell it (means staying away from certain people, permanently). The nose will heal up the best it can. If there are residual nasal problems, one's primary care doctor or ENT specialist can evaluate. ...Read more

Meth sores in nose after smoking meth is there anything I can do to help it besides stopping meth?

I smoke meth on Thursday and I will have plastic surgery for my nose on Tuesday morning! Is it ok to go under anaesthesia? Better if local or general

Let your Dr know: If there is a relationship that you have to absolutely trust it is your physician and personal relationship. Be very honest about your use of illicit drugs and timing of your surgery. Make sure you let the anesthesiologist know that as well, if you do not, your use of the illicit drugs could interact in a negative way w/anesthesia and could cause harm or death. Let them know ASAP. ...Read more

See doctor: I appears that you have a infection (likely staph) which needs to be treated by a doctor. If you don't have one, go to the ER before this spreads further. Perhaps you can get some help on your meth addiction as well even though I don't believe these two events are related (unless you have been injecting the material). ...Read more

Can adderall or Afrin nasal spray or a generic form of claritin d cause a positive methamphetamine result on a drug test?

Can adderall or Afrin nasal spray or a generic form of claritin d cause a positive methamphetamine result on a drug test?

Pseudoephedrine: Since the D in Claritin had been used to manufacture methamphetamine, I would suspect that it will produce a positive drug test. As for Afrin nasal spray, it is difficult to tell since any absorption would be minor and thus likely detectable only with extremely sensitive method. I hope other members in this panel will jump in on this topic. ...Read more
