Methamphetamine Overview

Methamphetamine[note 1] (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that is mainly used as a recreational drug and less commonly as a second-line treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity.[15] Methamphetamine was discovered in 1893 and exists as two enantiomers: levo-methamphetamine and dextro-methamphetamine.[note 2] Methamphetamine properly refers to a specific chemical subs...

Can methamphetamine cause degenerative nerve disease and sciatica

Can taking methamphetamine cause a sudden acute attack of painful sciatica and degenerative disc disease? I was fine when I went to bed but woke up with it and could not walk and was crippled with unbearable pain that's continued for a month and is still going on. Dr. prescribed neurontin which doesn't help at all. Help with medication suggestions please! ## I'm very sorry to hear about your debilitating side effects. From what I've been reading online, many of the symptoms associated with Methamphetamine use are often considered to be sudden and in some cases severe. This drug literally destroys from the inside out (lowering your body's immunity/resistance to illness in general); so I wouldn't say it's not possible to become crippled on methamphetamine, even...

White cross stimulant pill

I took many in the late 60's and early 70's. They were effective, very clean, and probably methamphetamine hydrochloric salts. They were very small tablets. Later on, around 1976 or so they started using caffeine, so that ended that drugs realm and into the methaqualone era that took many, many good people from this Earth. ## I'm surprised that they don't manufacture this medication illegally instead of methampetamine. I would never consider taking amptetamines, but I did take white cross pills to help me get through late night studying. ## I suppose if methamphetamine is the primary ingredient in white cross energy pills, then these drug manufacturers probably assume that they don't need to manufacture anything but methamphetamine and just be straightforward with th...

having asthma from birth to adult

I have suffered with asthma since birth...i had to watch kids playing and if i wanted to play, i knew i would have to go to dr and get a shot.....as i grew up, treatments varied, inhalers, breathing treatments from clinic or hospital....and to having breathing machine at home.....emergency inhalers, the list cont......there is nothing like praying to get the next breath......if you have not had that experience, then you cannot understand!!.....still as time went on, drs found that inhalers were really bad for the lungs....that is where bronkaid, primatene etc.... came into the picture....once again, as time went on, people figured that mixing those pills with whatever......they could make methamphetamine.....of course i cant stop it....so that meant that people like me who suffer from a...

small white round pill with 115 on one side and nothing on the other side ## This tablet contains 5mgs of Methamphetamine, the active ingredient in Desoxyn, used to treat ADHD and Exogenous Obesity. Common side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, headache and insomnia. Read more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Would taking this pill show on a drug panel as methamphetamine? ## Yes this would test as meth because this is meth. This is prescription meth made by a pharmaceutical company. You need a prescription from a doctor to get this it's very similar to Adderall and prescribed for the same reasons. The dosage and route of administration used for medical reasons are very different to whats done to abuse it, 1 the dosage is a lot lower then when you abuse it and 2 ...

yellow and black capsule pill with no markings

Found black and yellow capsules in my kids room they have no marking and no imprint. ## @Sumdub, Unfortunately all FDA approved prescriptions are required to have some sort of marking or imprint for identification, so my thinking is that it could literally be anything from a dietary supplement to a foreign, OTC or illicit drug. Have you tried talking with your kid to see if they can provide any information on what it's allegedly supposed to be? Since you found it in their bedroom I'd imagine they'd probably know something; and being the head of the household you should have every right to know what substances are brought into your home (if not but for his/her own safety). Another option would be to have the pill's contents analyzed by a lab in order to ensure an accurate...

Remedy for Methamphetamine sores

Is there an over the counter remedy for methamphetamine sores? I have been sober going on two weeks after using for 5 months. I want the sores on my legs gone. I would pick where they couldn't be seen. Now I wanna wear dresses and shorts. Advice please. ## Hello! Kaykay! How are you doing? Kudos for becoming sober, that's very hard to do. As to the sores, are they scars, scabs, or still open sores? The proper solution depends on the state they are in. For instance, according to the NIH, scars might require microdermabrasion by a dermatologist, or a special scar treatment ointment, which can help them to fade and be less visible. Some people have very good luck with them and get rid of their scars entirely. Open sores, or scabs, are just going to take time to heal, so they should...

HOW LONG TAKE THE EFFECT FROM METHAMPHETAMINE TO WARE OFF SO I CAN TAKE MY PAIN MEDS NOW..PAINFUL

I STUPIDLY HAD A BOWL OF METHAMPHETAMINE AFTER 8 YRS CLEAN FROM THAT HORRIBLE STUFF. LOL. IT'S BEEN ALMOST 10HRS SINCE.. BUT I'M IN SO MUCH PAIN N AIN'T SLEPT N 48 HOURS.. GETTING PSYCHOSIS LOL.. CAN I TAKE MY REGULAR DOSE MEDS FOR PAIN NOW TO TRY N REST? ..PLZ ANY THOUGHTS... #ASHAMEDOFMAKINGTHATDECISION ## Was there a specific medication in particular that you were planning on taking after the methamphetamine wore off? I only ask because you would actually need to check and see if methamphetamine poses any serious risks with whatever it is that you might be considering. Some things like Oxycodone, could actually be very dangerous when mixed, but without any name to go off of I really can't help you past that point, since drug interaction checkers also require you to be...

Prescribed Methamphetamine Treatment For ADHD

Hi, I'm Alex, I live in Spain and I have tdah. It turns out that I have tried all the treatments that exist here in Spain for ADHD and the one that has come closest to treating my symptoms has been lisdexanphetamine in a dose of 70mg + 70mg that is twice the maximum dose. I have researched that in the United States and Canada they use pharmaceutical methamphetamine as a medicine and it is very effective, but here in Spain they do not sell it. My question is this: If I go to Canada or the United States as a tourist, could I be prescribed this by a doctor? The other question is if I can be prescribed it, could I bring the medicine on the plane without having problems with customs? Thank you. ## It could be prescribed to you, though it would be much easier to see a doctor in the U.S., ...

clear capsule with white and red beads

Got a quick glimpse of some clear capsules with red beads inside. The man who had them is an alleged sober ex methamphetamine addict who claimed they were supplements and hid them. ## Did you ever find out what this was? I recently found some in an unmarked pill container in my mother's things. She has been on opioids and other narcotics over the years, she claims she no longer is, so I am curious as to what it is. I've looked all over the internet and have found nothing. Thanks! ## Hello Chance, Do you have any additional information on the pills other than the color of the capsule and beads? It would be extremely helpful if you could tell me if the pills had any imprints on them. If the pill does not have any imprints it is unlikely that it is any sort of medication. In fact w...
