Using drugs like Mepivacaine over a long period of time can cause the individual to become dependent on it in order to sustain a normal, happy life and this is the first sign of addiction. Someone who "needs" the drug to get out of bed and live every day of their life is a warning sign of addiction.
Aside from that, you may notice the person using this drug is becoming more isolated and withdrawn from society, ignoring social situations, wearing clothing to cover their arms and legs even in hot weather (to hide marks from the injection sites) and becoming obsessed with receiving more of this medication. The more severe addicts will often seek out medical help in order to provide them a reason to obtain this drug if they are unable to find it through illegal means. Another common...
Oxycodone works by stimulating certain opoid receptors that are located throughout the central nervous system, in the brain and along the spinal cord. When the oxycodone binds to the opoid receptors, a variety of physiologic responses can occur ranging from pain relief, to slowed breathing to euphoria. Withdrawal reactions include anxiety, irritability, sweating, trouble sleeping and diarrhea.
I was wondering if you've had your baby yet and if he/she's okay? Please help! My situation is identical to yours and I'm scared they're going to take my son when he comes. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
These young girls being pregnant and on drugs when is it going to stop? I watched Dr. Phil today and seeing these babies shacking and birth defects is very sad.
Bring them to the emergency room immediately!! You seriously even had to ask that question?
Horribly addictive as opposed to what? Can something be pleasantly addictive? First off it's the individual that gets addicted to the feelings the drug gives not the drug addicting people. Whether a drug is horribly addictive or not depends entirely on an individual's affinity for it. I understand that a person can become physically dependent on methadone (I am) but if we are seeking help via mmt then the done is not what got us dependent in the first place. Methadone did not kill you brother,...
I am currently going through what you went through. I do not have regular cycles. I felt something move in my stomach and freaked me out so I went to the ER and they say I'm 5 months. Oh my gosh I've been shooting meth on and off the whole time. I'm so scared I've hurt my baby. I'm also terrified they are going to test my baby when he's born. I have quit cold turkey with no problem. But I'm scared the damage is done and what if I tell a doctor and they take him. Should I just not tell and pray...
While I am not pregnant (nor do I have any children, but would like to start soon), I am addicted to medications legitimately prescribed to me for my chronic back pain. I've had spinal surgery to fuse one of my two herniated discs, but the surgery did not help me, it only made the pain worse and made the pain spread all over my body. Before I was on any of my current meds, I was stealing and abusing my dad's Soma (muscle relaxer) for about a year maybe a little longer. I was obviously found...
Hello Nikki, I see that this post is a few years old but I wanted to ask you how this turned out for you. I too like your boyfriend went through benzo withdrawal (Xanax) 8mg/day for 9 years. What stood out in your comment was that you said he locked himself in his room and that kind of brought flashbacks to me from my own experience. I lost a lot due to the withdrawal, my girlfriend, job, etc. because nobody understood what I was going through, as if I had the flu or something. It sounded...
Hi I'm 29 male and I know I'm addicted to codeine I've been on them about a year now it's taking over my life and I have a little 5yr old boy who lives with me full time and I'm scared to tell the doctor because I don't want to lose my son! I need help but I can't go into rehabilitation because I have to look after my boy he is my world n I couldn't be away from him.
I have to admit when I'm not on the stuff I do feel better then off it and I was just wondering if it causes heart problems?
Hey hope this will help, suboxone sucks too but it's better than the harder kind of dope.....I recently signed up for the Obamacare Coventry Health Insurance, regardless of your political feelings on this, it lowered my suboxone costs from 450$ down to 65$ for 90 a month. I don't take 90 a month, but as far as my doctor is concerned I do, which alleviates the anxiety of worrying what to do if I can't afford the cash payment for my doctor one month (the insurance doesn't cover the doctor...
LISTEN TO ME, GET OFF OF OXYCONTIN NOW, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE IN FOR. I had a serious car accident broke my neck and back in 6 places, and they put me on Oxycontin to deal with the pain. I have to say the pills WORKED GREAT, and I have been on them for 7 years, just with in the past 3 months, my skin started feeling weird, my face is going numb and tingling, I have a hard time hearing, and I am very dizzy, and my entire body feels cold and dead. IT IS SPREADING WORSE ACROSS MY BODY, NOW...
I am 29 yrs. old and my whole family has very strong addictive personalities. I have never done drugs or abused prescription medication. About 1yr ago I was in a car accident that resulted in me needing a neck fusion. I do not have medical insurance so I have to wait for the settlement in order to get the neck surgery some. I have been on oxycontin 20mg twice a day with oxycodone 10mg for breakthrough. When the insurance company stopped paying medical I had to stop the oxycontin and just use...
