Just curious. If people are smoking marijuana around you at a concert, can you fail a drug test? Or worse, can you get the effects of it?

Unlikely: Screening drug tests, such as those used for pre-employment physicals, typically have a threshold that is set at a high enough value to eliminate the risk of "passive" exposure causing a positive result. ...Read more

No: There is no immediate risk, though prolonged exposure to loud sounds will damage hearing. Do not use tissue paper, nor Q tips, to clean your ears. You may use small pieces of paper towel rolled into a wick. 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. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Please tell me, could i drink alcohol at a concert if im taking zyprexa (olanzapine) and Depakote at the same time?

Please tell me, could i drink alcohol at a concert if im taking zyprexa (olanzapine) and Depakote at the same time?

No: If you are being treated for either of the things these are used for - seizure disorders or bipolar disorder (and probably the latter) - alcohol is not your friend. It interferes with the levels of other drugs, reduces their effectiveness, and intoxication with alcohol is followed by increased depression, and even mania. If you are drinking, talk to your doctor about it, and keep "dose" low-one! ...Read more

Pregnancy: One does not need to get permission to live their lives when pregnant. You do not want physicians sharing their opinions about your personal choices. There is nothing about the activity you ask about that would be any different than a million other activities you are doing pregnant. ...Read more

How long after a splenectomy would it be safe to go to a concert?

How long after a splenectomy would it be safe to go to a concert?

It's not the music..: ..It's the crowd that I am more concerned about. I would consider attending a concert about equivalent to driving--when your surgeon has given you clearance to drive, you are probably "good to go"--of course, you could ask him/her about concerts, as well, at that time. If the operation was done laparoscopically, a week may be adequate; if "open", two weeks may be more realistic. ...Read more

I went to a concert, and as soon as i came out i was having trouble hearing and up till now i'm still having trouble hearing, what should I do?

I went to a concert, and as soon as i came out i was having trouble hearing and up till now i'm still having trouble hearing, what should I do?

Get ear plugs: Live music can be dangerously loud. I never go to concerts without ear plugs. Your ear has a way to dampen the sound to protect itself from some sound damage. Hopefully your hearing will return to normal in a few hours. You could have permanent noise induced hearing loss. Unfortunately there isn't anything you can do to fix that damage if it is present. You can see an audiologist for an eval. ...Read more
