Hey, I ate two cheese sticks that expired last September. I bought them yesterday, so what the hell, Kroger? They didn't taste quite right, but nothing alarming like mold. I was about to eat a third, but that stick did reek of mold.

I tried inducing emesis with the back end of an ice cream scoop, it took ten minutes to heave up two tiny blobs of cheese/spit. I have a strong stomach, not much of a gag reflex, and almost never puke unless I am very ill. How do I safely get this stuff out of my body?

What happened? You would 'probably' be feeling sick by now if something was wrong. I ate a big bite of pizza that as like 1 week old or longer. Kept a hidden pizza to eat at a pizza place I worked for, to munch on with a few choice people.

Reached under the pizza landing place and grabbed a slice of the old pizza.
Instantly knew what was up. Could of just said to manager take over and barfed outside instantly. Should have. Was sick for a week until I barfed a lot, very bad stuff. Not to pizza people, pizza is know to go bad pretty quick. If it is left out overnight, let it be known it could make you very sick. (I should have just barfed right away.)

Serotonin syndrome or just hypomania...? by Graham Cacklestone - Fri, 16 Feb 2018 00:14:31 EST ID:cFx6/hea No.55289 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Howdy. I've been on a regimen for a hot minute by an "alternative medicine" doc cause I'm one of those people with a fuckload of weird health issues that showed up after getting really sick (probably EBV) and it's the only thing that seems to help (it helps a lot). It's just licorice tea, panax ginseng, and siberian ginseng, basically, and kavinace at night. Now, he just recently also put me on 100mg 5htp at night, and the first week or so seemed to be going great, but today something veeeery interesting happened.

I woke up feeling kind of groggy (not unusual), and throughout the day as I woke up more and more my mood began to slowly escalate, then suddenly midday I was full blown hypomanic and fucking nuts. I experience mood disorder symptoms (various diagnoses throughout my life) so it wasn't like I had no comparable experience, but it was so intense I could psychically feel my future self's crash, and was kinda concerned that my brain seemed to have pushed this nitro button so suddenly. I felt really warm and godlike and also wanted to get in a fistfight, and I wanted to run around (and did), and maybe it was from that but I also was flushed. I was like this for the next few hours until I indeed crashed later, not catastrophically but definitely a kind of low where I felt bitter and depressed.

Now I'm kind of scared to take 5htp anymore. I have a history of serotonergic drug use, prescribed and illicit (never at the same time), and my brain has that funny way of handling its moods, so I'm not sure if I'm somehow just really sensitive to 5htp. My brain might also be in shock because it's been so low on 5htp for so long? Anyway, I don't have a degree so I'll stop speculating.

Meant to add that the last serotonergic substance I took other than 5htp was years ago and that there can't possibly be any more in me. The only thing I can think of is the 5htp somehow synergizing with the stimulant effects of the panax ginseng.

Hi /med/ , I almost posted this in /drank/ as it's a busier board but I reckon here is more appropriate.

My father is an alcoholic, has been for at least 30 years if not longer, he's in his mid 50's now. He drinks first thing in the day to stop the shakes, and his physical symptoms have become worse since his retirement 6 months ago. Presumably, because he couldn't drink that much on the job and now he has more time on his hands. He's commonly anxious, irritable and forgetful, his eyes are often red and his eyesight is failing him. He doesn't eat as much as he should and is often sick afterward. His stomach is severely swollen and has been for many years. Perhaps not all of these things are due to his alcoholism but it has obviously been a massive strain on the family over the years.

My mother had given up on making him change, and my sister is apathetic. However since he has gotten worse we've collectively put more pressure on him, talked about his problem more openly, and although it didn't seem to be getting through to him at first he has now told my mother that he will finally go to the doctor and be truthful with him/her.

We live in the UK so the cost of treatment is not an issue. My question here guy's is what will the doctor recommend? Total abstinence and benzos? Treatment in the hospital so they can supervise his detox?

I realise that he must want to stop and I truly hope him going to the doctor is a sign that he does. I've basically told him I refuse to watch him kill himself and will cease contact with him if he doesn't take steps. Pretty much bluffing as all I really want is as many days with my father as possible but hopefully he is serious about this doctor visit. Sorry I know this isn't /qq/ guys.

Thanks for your help

tl;dr - what treatment will a severe alcoholic receive if he visits a doc

Yeah, I went to the doctor with him the first time, told her all symptoms. She put him down for some blood tests and sent a referral letter to the psychiatric hospital, which also has a drug rehab centre in it. He returned for a second visit after the bloodtests however this time he wouldn't let me go with him. He told me he's surprisingly healthy however that appears to be a lie.

My mother says the doctor diagnosed him with dry beriberi, and he's now taking thiamine and b vitamin supplements. He has an appointment on the 7th of February that I'll be insisting on coming along to at the rehab centre.

Here's hoping this is the start of his recovery, I'll give you guys a shout with how the 7th goes.

vitamin B-1 is thiamine just fyi. honestly it sounds like you have a competent doc, that diagnosis is spot on and i was actually thinking of beriberi when i asked for an update. this is an entirely reversible condition providing he doesnt relapse or whatever. i am sure your father feels embarrassed about this, and while you should respect his modesty regarding his health and problems, it sounds like your continued presence is a very positive factor in his willingness to try to detox and make a recovery. although im a random stranger on the internet, based on what you have said thus far, i would encourage you to try to accompany him with the doc for future visits with this issue. try to be completely nonjudgmental and calmly focus on the facts, not calling any of his actions "good" or "bad" but just refer to blood levels etc. maybe do some random social shit with him after like grab dinner or watch a movie to make it less awkward and possibly embarrassing for him.

good on you anon for pushing a family member to address a problem. this will be one thing you wont regret later in life. lots of people torture themselves saying "what if i reached out to them??" well you are doing your part.

Well, at home treatment is OK. The main issue is intake to begin with. Say I drank a pint a day, same through the night. Sleeping in between. Wake up kinda sick, moments later you really just need a drink, fast. a few drinks changes everything and start to feel like normal in just merely 5, 10 minutes. Wide awake, clearer thinking and minutes after waking up.

Problem is people don't stop there because they suddenly just feel good, maybe start feeling sick again pretty quickly, so they drink more. Which usually is enough to keep a steady feeling. But then after take a shot every so often, and it's drink again time after a few hours of this. So it's back to drinking all day, sleep, wake up and drink all night.

Not sure how bad off he it but it' all not good at all.

SO by the time this cycle waking and drinking to feek Ok starts going though, one is closer to being as drunk as the night before. Felling good, but then just drink again in a couple few hours. It's a strange cycle.

Overall simply limiting the intake can make a difference in a day and even better two days later. 3 days.
Benzos, can basically detox in 3, days, still feel crappy, day 4 is almost normal. Can detox at home as easily unless one is really about to actually need to get to an emergency room very quickly. Benzos work welll I understand but if they aren't helping one must get them to an ER.

Tranxene (Clorazepate) is a good drug for detoxing and minimizing detox symptoms in a short time. librium, valium.

I bought some molly the other day that is definitely not mdma. certainly a stimulant, though. I dosed at home appx 4 hrs & again 30 minutes ago, other substances consumed in the past 12 hours are some coffee this morning, a few bowls, and my nicotine patch.
so i'm pretty near-sighted, but i can see fine with glasses and my prescription hasnt changed notably in probably four years. After my second dose, I'm having trouble focusing on objects near my face-- even while wearing glasses.

I'm not especially concerned about this development, but rolling--stims in general-- hasn't ever caused me to experience vision changes. Does anybody know what's causing this?

just because your vision is 20/20 now doesn't mean it wasn't better previously. doctors consider being able to bend your knee 135 degrees "healthy and functional" yet any half-healthy human can flex 180 lol. just because you meet the general standard of "no problems detected" does not equate to "perfect"

About three month ago I took MDMA and 1st plateau DXM (yeah, I know a very stupid combination) - after some hours I got really strong breathing problems. I was at the hospital after some days and they couldn't find any physical reason at all - they made a blood test, lung radiography, an electrocardiogram and something else I can't remember yet.
But I still suffer from difficulty in breathing - it mostly occurs when I am calm and relaxing; when I am distracted I dont even register it. So can this all be just psychosomatic? Or is there the possibility that they have overseen something at the check-up? I am in desperation. Any idea what I can do against it? would it be advisable to see a lung specialist as well?

L5-S1 disc inflammation/minor herniation is one of the most common spinal problems. it can heal. lead a more spine-healthy lifestyle and a lot of it could be reversible, especially the facet arthritis. look into the various lumbar decompression therapies, also inversion tables, PT, chiro, massage

Keep the area clean and apply aloe vera. Since your disability is both somatoform and addictive in nature, try channeling the addiction and attention seeking parts into a skill, that way, you can still get the desired attention need through showing off your healthier behavior. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has shown to be effective. I was a cutter for years until I completed it. They give you free snacks for doing it and it helps you gather skills to use instead of the trigger behavior. Try snapping with a rubber band instead, since sometimes these issues are sensory.

So I've been seeing a doctor and testing out different medications to "fix" my depression/anxiety for the 2nd time now in a few years.

The first time I was given an ssri, then had the dosage upped later after noticing nothing, and then had an additional drug prescribed to me which wasn't covered by my insurance leading to an argument with a family member. The argument combined with my frustration due to a lack of results after months of taking these pills lead me to stop cold turkey(with no ill effect that I can recall).

Now prior to my 2nd foray into solutions to my lingering depression/anxiety problems I dealt with some serious medical problems and had to get surgery etc. During this time I was ofc prescribed a fair amount of opiates. I'd been prescribed opiates before a few times and had left each experience seriously not understanding why people liked opiates. This latest experience left me feeling similarly after having what seemed to be an "oxy hangover" one morning I stopped taking the pills for what I thought would be forever(leaving me with lots of extra pills). Well, one morning I had crutched my way outside to smoke some weed and listen to the snow plow show as usual but after smoking and returning inside I decided to take one of my leftover pain pills to see how it effected the weed high. It ended up being an incredibly good experience and I finally "got" it.
This continued on for a few weeks where I binged on my pills until I ran out. During this time I was completely "cured" of my depression/anxiety(I think it's likely I'm somewhat autisitc/have aspergers as well), and was completely functional/wanted to do things(I wasn't sedated or anything like that). I found myself craving to talk to other people and actually being happy/carefree(a complete 180 for me). It was a truly amazing experience. As I said eventually I ran out, had a little cry knowing it would be over when I had the last of my pills but even then because of the effects of the drug I just put it to the side and continued on as if nothing was wrong. I experienced no withdrawals(interestingly) besides just being sad that it was all over.

So here I am again dealing …

Hello /med/. I've been dealing with a nasty case of "plugging shitloads of drugs". Tonight, RIGHT after emptying a syringe into my ass, I felt the urge to pee. But I couldn't relieve myself, or else the drug solution would have leaked out of my rear as soon as I let loose a stream of pee. I'm sure many of us have had the same problem during bouts of diarrhea.
