Why do I still crave heroin so much even when im on subutex?

Why do I still crave heroin so much even when im on subutex?

Not magic: Subutex is a great tool but not always enough. Some people with high heroin tolerance dont get complete relief. Because subutex only partially stimulates the opiate receptor there is a limit to what it can do. Above 24 mg no good evidence of increase benefit and not recommended. Talk to your doctor. If relapse is concern Methadone maybe more effective. But counseling and meetings help as well. ...Read more

I am very addicted to sex but I do not get much girls so i masturbat alot is it fine to do so?

I am very addicted to sex but I do not get much girls so i masturbat alot is it fine to do so?

Sounds fine: Masturbation should be harmless to the body as long as he or she does not use too much force or friction on his or her genitals. One should realize that the body has essentially the same response to masturbation as to sex for the purpose of reproduction. That means the body reacts just as it does during sexual intercourse, which, of course, has no harmful side effects on the body. ...Read more

Feel so much nauseas only when im on a car,if im driving im good but other than this is so much nauseas what can i do is anoying i am not pregnant?

Carsick: sounds like some motion sickness. When you are driving you are/should be constantly moving your eyes around - looking at traffic, mirrors, speedometer etc - as a passenger you may not be doing this - your eyes tell your brain one thing and the ears (semi circular canals) tell your brain something else causing you to be sick. Try closing your eyes. it may help if not see your doctor. ...Read more

So im frustrated because I can give the best advice.to people when they need it. Like I saved my friends life tonight yet my brain shuts off when I get upset? And I say stuff I regret.

Calm discussion best: Sounds like you are human like the rest of us. That's wonderful that you listen and have the wisdom to give good advice when needed. It is true that rational thinking can be difficult while upset. It is difficult though, to engage the logical portion of your brain with Sudoku, math, or other scholarly problem-solving pursuits and remain in emotional upheaval. The converse is also true. ...Read more

Disinhibition ; more: One of alcohol's many effects is its ability to disinhibit behavior. This is why you might do things when drunk that you might ordinarily not do. Your cerebral cortex normally keeps you tapped into social decorum -- but when you drink, you go back to lizard brain behavior -- you want what you want when you want it, and get mad when anything interrupts this. Alcoholics anonymous can help. ...Read more

Why do I feel pissed off whenever i exercise? Its supposed to make relaxed like it did in the past before i took and stopped any psychiatric drug.

Interesting : This might depend on what type of exercise you're doing, or whether you might be using any performance-enhancing substances. Another question might be whether the issue for which your doctor prescribed medications is coming back? It could be helpful to talk with your psychiatrist about this and get to the bottom of it. Good luck to you. ...Read more
