What is drug hypersensitivity?

highly sensitive to drugs (your body reacts very strongly - usually negatively to drugs).

having a slow metabolism can be a cause of this because the drug does not get processed quick enough to have its effect and it stays in your blood system. If you take your next dosage the effects are compounded.  (+ info)

How can hypersensitivity due to multiple sclerosis be reduced?

I was diagnosed with MS with Transverse Myelitis in September. Since then every spot on my body has bee stings and every spot is overly sensitive to anything that I touch, be it something cold that feels hot or something that should hurt but does, such as these computer keys. I take Copaxone and Avonex through a trial, but I've had another attack since Sept. I have taken 22 different seizure drugs and anti-depressants, which are supposed to work on this type of problem, and IV lidocaine. Nothing has aleviated or even lessened the pain. Any suggestions?

All those medications might actually have aggravated the situation.

Warm water. I know it will hurt a bit at first, but stand in a warm shower, lukewarm at first if you prefer, and just let the water run on you for about fifteen minutes (or shower as usual.) I have personal experience with pains and sensitivities and that helps me most days. Soy milk also helps on really bad days. It's like it has some natural reliever in it or something. Sip on plain water all day...and you'll hate it coz it aggravates some things maybe, but a nice drink of sweetened coffee. Let it sit a bit if you must. Exercise a little bit more every day and you will be so tired at night you have to sleep no matter what (without dealling with the pain.) Good diet of fruits, veggies, lean meat, water....

Your doctors should be helping with this some more. Try getting an impartial doctor's opinion of what needs to happen maybe?  (+ info)

Is it cent percent sure that after circumcision the hypersensitivity of my glans will go for ever?

I am suffering from phimosis. Circumcision is the only way. But if my hypersensitivity of glans will not go, I cant wear any dress.

Please answer to the question only.It is urgent. Don't advise me to avoid circumcision.

After circumcision, some guys, especially those who had it done because of phimosis and therefore never really had the head exposed before, will find the glans become extremely sensitive to touch,
However, overtime it will become used to it, from rubbing against things like clothing, and you will no longer feel so sensitive. Just one of those things you might have to put up with while it heals, if you have circumcision.  (+ info)

What is the difference between drug abuse and drug addiction?

I am witing something freelance and just wondering if anyone can give me an addequite difference between drug abuse and drug addiction.

The definition of an addict is: 1. To cause to become physiologically or psychologically dependent on a habit-forming substance
2. To occupy (oneself) with or involve (oneself) in something habitually or compulsively

Definition of drug abuse: he use of illegal drugs or the inappropriate use of legal drugs. The repeated use of drugs to produce pleasure, to alleviate stress, or to alter or avoid reality (or all three).

The use of a drug for a purpose other than that for which it is normally prescribed or recommended.

the habitual misuse of a chemical substance

They are very similar definitions. Almost the same.

Why are people either classified as a drug abuser or a drug addict? Drug abusers don't usually get the intese care an addict does. Remember, the definition for addic includes psychological addiction... not just physical.

when you are addicted, you are abusing them..so, not much difference  (+ info)

How long does it take for a drug to leave the body?

I have been taking a drug called kava kava which is an herbal drug I don't know if anyone is familiar with it or not but a couple days after taking this drug I started having serious heart palpitations. I researched online and I see that this drug is known to cause heart palpitations. Do you think this drug is actually causing the palpitations that I am having and also how long does it take for this drug to leave the system so that I can stop having these side effects? I have been drinking lots of water to see if that helps.

The time that a drug takes to leave your system is usually measured by its "half life", meaning the time it takes for half of the drug's metabolic by-products to leave your system.

I just looked up kava kava,and read that it has a half life of 9 hours. This means though that what remains in your system can hang around for much longer than this - up to a couple of days.

Drinking water is about the best thing you can do.  (+ info)

What drug causes mind disorder or unable to be himself again?

Some people say that there are a drug that makes someone disabled and unable to be himself again. Because of that drug one of my friend is now unable to think and talking to him is useless now.

i think it's a tie between x or meth.

x because if you take the wrong pill...it can completely change someone around. It's so dangerous.

meth i think though is like...the worst f'in drug. it completely morphs a person into something you don't even know anymore.

without seeking help...it'll always stay that way.  (+ info)

What type of drug makes your eyes red besides marijuana?

My sister is on something, but denies being high from marijuana. I am wondering if she is just lying about the marijuana and it is really some other drug, so technically she wouldn't be lying about smoking marijuana because she is doing some other type of drug. What other drugs make your eyes red?

bloodshot eyes can be a symptom of vitamin C deficiency....... smoking anything will deplete you of your precious water soluble vitamin C supplies ........ as will antibiotics, otc cold and flu meds and painkillers, alcohol, sodas, pop and soft drinks, excessive caffeine, antidepressants, laxatives, diuretics, eating too much processed sugar and processed salt, sleeping tablets, the oral contraceptive and eostrogen supplementation ... other symptoms of vitamin C deficiency are easy susceptibility to cold and flu, easy bruising, bleeding gums, fatigue and exhaustion....... vitamin C deficiency can also contribute to digestive problems and joint pain.....;0)

peace baby
