Hey there guys, I'm hoping someone with some dermatology experience might exist here. I have always had eczema, but the last month or two, my fingertips started to get really, really bad, worth than ever. They started existing in a permanent state of peeling, itchiness and awfulness. I've been to the doctor three times now. He gave me Elocom cream and Prednisone (which helped for a bit while I was on it, then it came back.) I've been using the steroid cream for a long time and still do but nothing seems to work.

Now what I can only describe as ...speckles appeared on most of my fingertips, my thumbs, parts of my palm, accompanied with a sickly orangish/yellowish undead hue around them. It feels odd and rough to the touch, and I have less feeling in my fingertips and it's itchy but it hurts to scratch. The doctor is referring me to a dermatologist, but in my town, it could be a long time before I see one. It's just worrying me that the steroids didn't fix it. I can't find any images online that look enough like it to satisfy me. All the eczema and psoriasis "bumps" are white, or bigger, these are like..tiny speckles accompanied with redness and peeling. You can actually see the line where my normal skin starts underneath. I've been using a lot of moisturizer too on the doc's suggestion along with the elocom cream. They don't hurt when I touch it, feels scaly and the ones near my finger joints make it feel tough to curl my fingers, stiff like.

Anyone have any idea what this is? I'll post a few pics.
Thanks guys,
  • a worried stoner.

my first thought on seeing these images is bone or joint, not skin. there's no joint at the tip of the finger, so... bone? does it hurt to moderately tap the tip of your finger against a hard surface? squished the finger recently? also possible gout

Hello /med/

About a month and a half ago, I had to have my appendix taken out. Since recovering from the surgery, I have noticed that the head of my penis is a lot less sensitive than it was previously. Is this normal, will the sensation return, and is there anything a urologist could do anything about?

Thanks for reading.

Why don't you take a look at some atypical antipsychotics that may be even activating?
>Amisulpride function primarily as a D2 and D3 receptor antagonist. It has high affinity for these receptors with dissociation constants of 2.2 nM and 2.4 nM, respectively. Although standard doses used to treat psychosis inhibit dopaminergic neurotransmission, low doses preferentially block inhibitory pre-synaptic autoreceptors. This results in a facilitation of dopamine activity, and for this reason, low dose amisulpride has also been used to treat dysthymia.
50 mg per day may be a good augmentation.

Cut these and eat a tin of sardines every day (or most days) if possible. Fish oil doesn't really work that well compared to real fish.

>Multivitamin
Worthless, cut it. Literally nobody ever benefits from a multivitamin. If you're deficient in something supplement that specific thing.

>Magnesium Oxide
Go for Magnesium Glycinate instead. Lots of people recommend Doctor's Best brand.

>B-12 and a B-complex
Why are you taking these? Does the b-complex include b-12? 2 milligrams of b-12 is a thousand times more than you need anyway, so I'd cut the b-12 or possibly only take it once a week at the most.

And try finding ways to improve your diet. Fermented/pickled vegetables like in sauerkraut and kimchi are delicious (to me, at least) and don't take any time to prepare. (They can be expensive, but so is buying a shitload of supplements all the time.)

Do you even know what most of these supplements are for? And you don't get significant amounts of many of them from even the best diet (for example, drinking even large amounts of green tea does NOT have the same effect as taking green tea extract and l-theanine).

Hello. I've been on a few anti-depressants over the past years. The ones that have given the best effect so far have been Venlafaxine and currently Duloxetine, both SNRIs.

Now I'm going to a festival in the UK next year and I'm looking for information regarding which drugs I need to stay away from. So far I've gathered MDMA, Cocaine and LSD to not be such a good idea, mainly concerned about serotonin syndrome. But according to this chart even MDMA is "low risk" which I find hard to believe tbh. I know mephedrone is very common where I'm going so any relevant information you have regarding that one would be great.

Not sure how much I can trust the list. I've had quite a bit of alcohol a few times and I have noticed I get a lot more drunk than usual, around the 5th beer or so. Once or twice have been a bit unpleasant. I might just stay away from everything and just smoke some weed, I do love me some rave and amphetamines though..

My grandma suffers from chronic pain which she strangely enough can't get through with high opioid dosages.

I know of people who experienced greater relief from weed than morphine.

She's old school and anti-drug, so I can't come towards her asking her to try that. I would have to lie.

Some concentrated oil would have seemed fine to conceal it as some other natural medicine to try. Yet it still remains an ethical problem, lying about it, plus I don't want her tripping balls and have a bad trip.

What am I supposed to do here? Morphine doesn't help her. Maybe cannabis won't either but at this point it could be worth a shot. I have no agenda, I don't even smoke anymore. I just want to help if I can.

Thanks for reading me and telling me your opinion.

Hello /med/

I'm now on a daily dose of 15 mg aripiprazole (Abilify), an atypical anti-psychotic.

My question is what drugs can I safely consume without it causing serious interactions?

Fanny Blytheworth - Sun, 11 Dec 2016 23:31:03 EST 4bqi4YbH No.54625 Reply
I would avoid stimulants entirely, aside from maybe limited caffeine. Most antipsychotics suppress dopamine hard enough to render [dopaminergic] stimulants effectively inert. Abilify is wonky in that there are a few dopamine receptor subtypes where it is actually a partial agonist. So it would be quite easy to overload these particular receptors chasing a high that is being actively blocked everywhere else. Could also mess with BP due to adrenergic issues.

Psychedelics will be quite diluted due to a variety of serotonin receptors being antagonized by a competing molecule (which may also physically block by crowding out space at the receptor site itself). LSD and shrooms probably wouldn't be dangerous, per se, but significantly less enjoyable/downright unpleasant are both likely outcomes. Combining with weed may improve results somewhat. Avoid 2C-X, NBOME, DOX, and the like (reasons similar to the first paragraph).

-Abilify is potentiated by grapefruit juice; anything else that is potentiated by grapefruit juice shares a liver enzyme in its metabolism and thus may also cross-potentiate with aripiprazole through this mechanism.

-Nitrous might be something to consider, though I would not really recommend most other dissociatives (if you're gonna do it, stick with ketamine, lowball it, and DON"T take it so the active effects coincide with when your Abilify dose is taken/"kicks in"). Salvia would probably not be dangerous but may be rather unpleasant.

-MDMA [and similar] as well as DXM should be avoided as they interact with Abilify in too many ways to list.

-Taking deliriants in combination with Abilify, speaking from personal experience, asymptotically approaches literal hell on earth.

So that basically leaves weed, tobacco, GABAergics [such as alcohol, benzos, and the like]*, opiods*, possible low-dose LSD/psilocybin, and nitrous as your general options. Do note the downers may cross-potentiate with Abilify resulting in higher blood levels of both than expected.

Disclaimer: I based these recommendations mainly on the pharmacology of Abilify, not really considering whatever condition you're dealing with to have been prescribed it in the first place, so be careful. Hope you see better times - hang in there.

Hope it stops. I have had this for very brief periods of time in a span of maybe acouple of weeks, minor moreso for longer. If it ends great, some people deal with this for basically their entire life. Many have found drugs that actually work, if this persists. I assume it would go away in a short while on it's own.

Antidepressants, soo many stories. I like remeron, seems kind, establishes its-self in ones routine quickly, like days. Many antidepressants take weeks
to even know if is is actuallly doing anything beneficial, by then one has been taking it soo long that discontinuance can be a real issue.

Anyway good luck.

hi, very occasionally (usually when sleep deprived) i get what I called 'brain zaps'. I want to know if I'm going to die.
They usually feel like a wave across my brain, and they're accompanied by the sound of a roar with doppler effect and it feels like i lose muscle/mind control, then come back - its very quick.
epilepsy runs in my family, I had a couple seizures as a child but wasn't diagnosed, could this be related? ill be fine ignoring it, right? its happened occasionally (5-6 times a year)

Not a great feeling for sure. I liken it to what it wouldfeel like before a seizure. People who use benzos heavilly and suddenly withdrawal some get these zaps. Some people experience this with no apparent cause. Some alongside medication and or other health sissies.

Usually medication, Some medication is known for brain zaps, antidepressants usually, sudden or rapid discontinuance for some will experience these and known documentation of adverse reactions to these can happen even if taken as directed.


I kinda likeb these to night terrors. Where temporary conscious ability of movement and thought is disturbed momentarily. Could be a medical condition. if using drugs like speed, would be a good idea to take that out of the program permanently. If on prescribed medication maybe let a doctor know about these, as said some medications adverse side effects may cause as laymans terms call these brain zaps, there is a medical term, but any doctor would know and by your description what it may feel like. Brain zaps may feel like connections are being crossed, misdirected. I would say to do with the nervous system.

Maybe discuss with a doctor, and what options there are if these become frequent enough in the future that it interferes with sleep quality. Don't really ignore it, just keep it in mind.

There are many ongoing sleep studies, maybe google around and surely some focus on these issues.

Scraping your knee would be pretty much irrelevant. I have taken ibuprofen for many cuts while on SSRIs and while yes, you will bleed noticeably longer, it isn't drastic. It's a relative contraindication at most, a couple doctors who have treated me were completely unaware of it.

Depends on the level of vitamins/omega fatty acids vs PCBs, heavy metals, and other toxins which may have bioaccumulated in the fish. These are subject to the type of fish, individual variation between specimens, as well as the manufacturing process used to extract and purify the oil.

One could theoretically acquire hypervitaminosis A from too much cod liver oil or other similarly rich sources (alongside a presumably rather nasty case of indigestion). And of course, if one has an allergy to fish/shellfish then use of the respective oil would be highly contraindicated.

That being said, it's still probably better for you than it is for the fish.

So every morning I wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning, dehydrated and covered in sweat, and have to take a piss. Every hour or so after that I have to get up again and take another piss. I'm probably only getting 4 hours of sleep per night. Also likely related, my sex drive is also completely gone and my social avoidance has also gotten worse.

This problem developed while I was using weed every day very heavily, but I've been off the weed for a few days now and it hasn't gotten any better. I've read that weed can affect the hypothalamus and affect endocrine function which seems like it could be the issue I'm having since one of the causes of nocturia is a decrease in arginine vasopressin at night and AVP is produced by the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus also releases LH and FSH which affect testosterone production. Chronic weed use has been shown to alter testicular function and reduce testosterone levels. The HPTA axis has also been linked to social behavior including attachment, so if my HPTA axis is being suppressed it would make sense that my social avoidance is getting worse.

My questions are does this sound like a reasonable explanation for my symptoms, and other than stopping the weed, is there anything I can do to restore my brain and body to the way it's supposed to be? I've been considering using clomid which is a selective estrogen receptor modifier which acts on estrogen receptors in the hypothalamus leading to the upregulation of the HPTA axis. Any input would be useful.

You're not in any rush, from what I can gather, despite being uncomfortable about your situation. Try quitting cannabis, and waiting at least a month to see if there is any alleviation of your problems, before potentially compounding it by meddling with your endocrine balance.

Since you seem to have done your research, I assume you're aware that nocturia, diaphoresis and dehydration are all symptoms of diabetes? It seems to me this is a more likely an explanation than a rare endocrine complication from cannabis use.
