Any toxicology lab will be able to detect the "broken down" metabolites of any substance they want to find: If cough syrup is all your worried about then tell "them" exactly what you took and they can tell if it's the same compounds or not using GC/MS (gas chromotography/mass spec) Drug Profile, Urine (Nine Drugs), Immunoassay With GC/MS Confirmation Synonyms: IA-9 Test Includes: Amphetamines; barbiturates; benzodiazepines; cannabinoids (marijuana); cocaine; methadone (Dolophine®); opiates (codeine, morphine only); phencyclidine (PCP); propoxyphene Specimen: Urine (random) Volume: 45 mL (about 4 tablespoons) Container: Use plastic urine drug bottle and evidence tape or tamper-evident container for forensic specimen.

Listed drugs reported if positive. Urine testing shows drug use over the last 2 or 3 days for amphetamines, cocaine, and opiates. Marijuana and its metabolites, cannabinoids, may be detectable for several weeks. Hair samples, which test the root end of the hair, reflect drug use within the last 2 to 3 months but not the most recent 2-3 weeks - the amount of time it takes for the hair to grow. Saliva detects which drugs have been used in the last 24 hours. Samples of sweat may be collected on an absorbent patch worn for several days to weeks and therefore can indicate drug use at any point during that extended period of time. These other types of samples are often used for specific purposes. For instance, hair samples may be used as an alternative to urine testing for employment or accident drug testing. Sweat testing may be used as a court-ordered monitoring tool in those who have been convicted of drug use, while saliva is often used by the insurance industry to test insurance applicants for drug use.

It is possible he will fail the lab test. The home tests are not the same and aren't as good as the lab tests. There is a bit of misinformation out there and that is cocaine is out of your system in 2-3 days. Well while that might be true LABS DON'T TEST FOR THE DRUG ITSELF. Yes, that is true, they look for the metabolite. A metabolite is something that the body produces when it ingests something, in the case of cocaine it is "benzoylecgonine" that will stay around long after the drug is gone, up to 30 days for a frequent user. THE DRUG ITSELF can stay in your bloodstream up to 72 hours. It can stay in your urine for about 1 or up to 3 days after single use. Habitual or chronic use can be detected in urine for up to 12 weeks depending on quantity, duration, and frequency of use. Answered by Numbers Nardino 6 months ago.

Who is "they"? Are you on probation or parole and court-ordered to submit to drug testing? Is this a pre-employment or random employment drug testing in accordance with your company's policies? If not, then no one can drug test you without your consent. Whatever you do, don't use synthetic urine. I used it once and it came back positive for THC. Answered by Tanika Kolkmann 6 months ago.

Zopiclone is a good modern one, it keeps you asleep. A really really great one is Doriden, but it's not prescribed too much. That stuff puts you to sleep really well. Answered by Alyson Pitsenbarger 6 months ago.

If she had her hip operated on then the pain medications should be more than enough to keep her from waking up if she is taking them correctly. Have her see a doctor about maybe getting a higher dosage. If not, then have her try taking melatonin and drinking chamomile before bed, and failing that, see a doctor about the possibility of getting her on some sleep meds. Do NOT under any circumstances borrow sleeping pills from a friend or relative to give to her, as they are very serious medications and NOT something to play around with. Best of luck!

Non-narcotics - Melatonin. Can be found just about everywhere from CVS, Health stores, to local Grocers. Melatonin is what is created in our brain to cause us to sleep.

Clinical classification is more commonly used and more difficult to understand- examples include antidepressants, pain killers, sleeping pills, narcotics, anti-anxiety medications, uppers, downers, stimulants, and depressants. This terminology is over simplified and does not take into account the fact that all drugs have multiple uses. Also using clinical classifications is typically ambiguous since people may define things differently- for example many people consider downers/depressants to include opioids and many believe that depressants cause depression (which is rarely true). I have listed a mix of drugs, some classified chemically (amphetamines, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, opioids) and some classified clinically to make it a bit less complicated.

How do drug highs differ from drug to drug?
doin a presentation for school and basically need to know this how do 'highs' differ from drug to drug? i know marijuana highs are basically a feeling of being calm but party drugs used in raves and so on have a totaly different effect right? anyone care to explain? Asked by Marina Vogtman 6 months ago.

Drugs of abuse acts differently on the brain, different parts of the brain (to some extent), and most importunely on different neurotransmitters. So here are some examples of drugs abuse Cocaine- a central nervous system stimulant that blocks re-uptake of of certain neurotransmitters, most notably serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are all stimulating and cocaine causes them to bind more often to receptors, greatly increasing their levels. Dopamine it typically increased to about 200 units, the human brain can only naturally produce 100 units for a very short period. Dopamine is the "pleasure molecule" and "master molecule of addiction" with significant reinforcing effects. All drugs of abuse increase dopamine however stimulants do it to a much larger extent. Amphetamine/methamphetamine- amphetamines are the most powerful stimulants there are, with dextromethamphetamine being the most powerful. Amphetamines can produce 1,200 units of dopamine (six time more than cocaine). Amphetamines, like cocaine, block the re-uptake of serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine they also inhibit MAO, the substance that breaks down the neurotransmitters, and amphetamine causes the cell to "dump" the neurotransmitters out, greatly increasing the levels. As a result people can become more talkative, more energetic, less depressed, less inhibited, more willing to take risks, and in some cases, paranoid, psychotic, manic, or they may have delusions of grandeur. Cocaine also has the same effects. Opioids (heroin, morphine, oxycodone)- these drugs bind to opioid receptors in the brain, the same receptors as endorphins. This modulates pain, causes sedation, euphoria, and anxiolysis. Unlike cocaine or amphetamines opioids cause physical dependency. Alone physical dependency is not addiction and it is routine and not a problem in people using opioids for legitimate pain. Sedative/hypnotic/tranquilizers/downer... this primarily consists of three types of drugs, barbiturates and benzodiazepines which have replaced most barbiturate use, and alcohol. Although these three types of drugs are separate they have almost identical actions. They act on the GABAa receptor, GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter that reduces neuronal firing, thus leading to less brain activity and less anxiety and/or hypnosis (sleep). These drugs cause feeling of sedation, less anxiety, loss of inhibitions, amnesia, and tranquility. In some cases paradoxical reactions can occur (and are most common and well known with alcohol), these include anger, rage, violence, self-harm, suicidal and/or homicidal thoughts amount others. Alcohol also acts on several other neurotransmitters and produces addiction effects. These drugs cause extreme physical dependency, more so than any others. As a result people can become dependent, like with opioids it is not a problem if the drugs are for legitimate medical use. Withdrawal symptoms from heavy abuse are worse than heroin and potentially lethal. Other drugs with similar actions include chloral hydrate, Miltown, Soma, Quaaludes, Doriden, and Ambien. MDMA (ecstasy)- technically an amphetamine but with significantly different effects. It primarily acts by increasing serotonin (and to a small extent many other things) by inhibiting re-uptake and increasing serotonin directly. It causes people to have energy, have feelings of love, empathy, and compassion towards others, a general euphoria, increased awareness and increased senses, and loss of anxiety and inhibitions. Contrary to what one person wrote, MDMA will not cause neurotoxic effects or make a person will depression a lot worse. Some research indicates that there can be a small reduction (about 4%) in serotonin levels after chronic abuse. But most evidence indicates it is even safer than THC (marijuana), alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drug abuse. There are many other drugs but these are some of the most common. Answered by Alida Maestos 6 months ago.

Because they are uneducated and ignorant to the facts. As you say, it's a totally different hit from chemicals. Alcohol is VERY similar to some chemical drugs, yet you don't hear much about booze being a gateway. The whole concept of a gateway to me is madness anyways. Just because you like one thing doesn't mean that by default you are going to like a bunch of others. It's like saying that eating a cheese sandwhich at home every so often is a gateway to going out and having a McDonalds every half hour. Total ignorance. Basically some people just want to stop other people from doing what they want - they're always going to be there and we should carry on ignoring them, and making fun of them behind their backs like we always have done!

Cocaine and crack cocaine give you a feeling of energy. I once met a man who was a coke addict. He hands were moving very quickly and he couldn't stop moving. Meth gives you a feeling of paranoia. Heroin gives you a relaxed feeling. Magic mushrooms will cause some people to see colors, though reports of hallucinations are rare. LSD is much more likely to cause hallucinations. They will either calm you down or stress you out. There are good trips and bad trips, as many users of these drugs have reported. Ecstasy gives you a ton of energy. PCP can make you very angry. You will stop feeling pain. Someone on PCP is very dangerous because of this. An angry person who can punch his hand into a wall and not feel his fingers break. It is said that a man on PCP tore off his own testicles in front of police officers, though this may just be a rumor. Answered by Danyel Machi 6 months ago.

Coke/ crack is kind of like amphetamines. They give you a speedy energized high where you feel like you are smarter and better than avert thing else. Amphetamines make you stay up for days on end and you are empathetic, interested and excited about nothing.(extacy or MDMA is an amphetamine) Opiates make you relaxed, warm and itchy. It is the best thing on the planet. Benzodiapines which are usually date rape drugs or anti anxiety make you spaced out And doped out of your mind. A very forgetful high if you take to much. Hallucinogens (LSD, DMT, 25i, psilocybin, ect;) are just like dreaming while you're awake. Patterns, you will see things melt random lights and sounds and things like that.

Are narcotics physically addictive or psychologically addictive?
^self explanatory. PLEASE HELPPP. Asked by Jacob Kwek 6 months ago.

A few things- there is no such thing as "physical addiction," that is a term that is a result of the fact that most people do not know what addiction is. Many people incorrectly believe that physical dependence is addiction however addiction is psychological dependence. Addiction (technically known as substance dependence) is defined, as a primary, chronic, neurobiologic disease, with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. It is characterized by behaviors that include one or more of the following: impaired control over drug use, compulsive use, continued use despite harm, and craving. The official prescribing information for opioids also say "abuse and addiction are separate and distinct from physical dependence and tolerance. Physicians should be aware that addiction may not be accompanied by concurrent tolerance and symptoms of physical dependence in all addicts. In addition, abuse of opioids can occur in the absence of true addiction and is characterized by misuse for non-medical purposes, often in combination with other psychoactive substances. Since (opioids) may be diverted for non-medical use, careful record-keeping of prescribing information, including quantity, frequency, and renewal requests is strongly advised." Tolerance is a state of adaptation in which exposure to a drug induces changes that result in a diminution of one or more of the drug’s effects over time. Tolerance could occur to both the desired and undesired effects of drugs, and may develop at different rates for different effects. Physical dependence is a state of adaptation that is manifested by an opioid specific withdrawal syndrome that can be produced by abrupt cessation, rapid dose reduction, decreasing blood level of the drug, and/or administration of an antagonist. The opioid abstinence or withdrawal syndrome is characterized by some or all of the following: restlessness, lacrimation, rhinorrhea, yawning, perspiration, chills, piloerection, myalgia, mydriasis, irritability, anxiety, backache, joint pain, weakness, abdominal cramps, insomnia, nausea, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, increased blood pressure, respiratory rate, or heart rate. If a person uses opioid narcotics long term (for medical or illicit reasons) they will almost certainly become physically dependent on the drug however physical dependence is normal. An addict will likely be physically dependent but they also crave the drug and continue abusing the drug despite consequence. A person taking morphine for pain may be physically dependent but his use of the drug is not likely causing him problems. Other drugs that can cause physical and/or psychological dependence include barbiturates (Seconal, Nembutal, Luminal), benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax, Ativan), certain other sedative/hypnotics (Miltown, Soma, Doriden, methaqualone), and alcohol. When these drugs are used for medical uses they, like opioids commonly cause physical dependence but rarely cause addiction. There are also some drugs that can cause physical dependence but not psychological dependence and thus are not addictive. Corticosteroids and beta-blockers are common examples. Lastly the term "narcotic" is from the Greek "narke" and means to make numb or to stupor. Medically a narcotic only refers to opioids (Heroin, morphine, oxycodone, hydromorphone, methadone). Under US law a narcotic refers only to opioids or cocaine. Under Canadian law, for example, a narcotic is defined by a drugs legal classification. The general public often uses the term "narcotic" to refer to any drug however that is not correct. Answered by Nicole Dulaney 6 months ago.

Depending on which narcotic you are talking about. Some narcotics like opioids (relating to heroin, morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, hydromorphone,) are physically addicting when used on a continual basis. As in you will have withdrawal effects when you stop taking. Narcotics like cocaine and free base cocaine (crack) will also cause withdrawal effects when you stop using after prolonged ingestion. Alcohol (not necessarily a narcotic) can also cause withdrawal effects after prolonged use. Some reports of marijuana discontinuation may cause some VERY temporary (maybe not even noticable) withdrawal such as irritability. But any substance that gives the user pleasure has the potential to be psychologically addicting. Answered by Beverley Frenz 6 months ago.

Only certain drugs are physically addictive but pretty much all are psychologically addictive. Drugs like painkillers (vicodin, oxycontin, morphine), heroin, some anti anxiety medications (xanax, klonopin), and alcohol are all physically addictive. Once you become physically dependent on them you will experience withdrawal that is VERY horrible. It's something you never want to go through. It takes a good while of continuous, basically everyday use to become dependent on the drugs. You will KNOW if you are. I've heard that you can also go through some sort of physically withdrawal with drugs like cocaine, crack, cigarettes & meth. But it's nothing like the others. You may have headaches and anxiety but that's really it. You'd be able to live your everyday life, while if you were withdrawing from the others, you wouldn't be able to get out of bed.

Answered by Ozella Ellen 6 months ago.

"Downers" is not a medical term. And Prozac is certainly not a "downer" by any definition, it is an SSRI class antidepressant. However it can make some people tired. Basically you are talking about anxiolytics, sedatives, and hypnotics. Benzodiazepines are by far the most prescribed. Barbiturates are rarely used anymore because benzodiazepines are just as effective in most things and they are far safer. In fact benzodiazepines are among the safest drugs and are only lethal in doses thousands, even hundreds of thousands of times normal. The most prescribed benzodiazepines include: Xanax (alprazolam) Ativan (lorazepam) Valium (diazepam) Rivotril/Klonopin (clonazepam) Restoril (temazepam) Serax (oxazepam) Valium is typically the best known drug of the group and it was the most prescribed drug for over a decade. The "Z" drugs are commonly used hypnotics and include zolpidem, zaleplon, zopiclone, and eszopiclone. Like I said barbiturates are rarely used but a few examples (which may or may not be available in certain countries): Veronal (barbital) Luminal (phenobarbital)- still used commonly used an anticonvulsant, especially in developing countries. It is still arguably the best anticonvulsant. Nembutal (pentobarbital)- this drug along with chloral hydrate, also a "downer" killed Marilyn Monroe. Mebaral (mephobarbital) Amytal (amobarbital) Seconal (secobarbital) Tuinal (amobarbital/secobarbital) Others include the hypnotic chloral hydrate, as mentioned, Miltown (meprobamate), and Doriden (glutethimide). The point of using any of these drugs is not to "make you lay in bed all day." Using hypnotics (sleeping pills) in the day can cause a person to sleep all day. And EXCESSIVE use of these drugs can cause a person to be to tired to do much but people who take or have taken these types of drugs don't just stay in bed unless they abuse the drugs (all the drugs I listed have a potential for abuse, dependence, and addiction). The reason these drugs are taken are to treat insomnia, epilepsy, anxiety disorders, acute states of anxiety and or agitation, muscle spasms, anesthesia, to treat intoxication from cocaine, amphetamines, and hallucinogens, and there are many other uses.

Theres strong stuff from a vet, and I have seen products in the pet stores to help calm a dog. They even prescribe prozac for dogs now, it's crazy. Edit: I'm not sure why you're looking for some, but before trying to chemically sedate your dog, try to exercise it more. They say a tired dog is a happy dog. Some also like to have some kind of work (especially if it's a high energy working breed.) If this is the case, look into agility. I have seen kits in the stores for about $40 to get started. If even with exercise you are still having issues, consult your vet. Answered by Billy Goldsby 6 months ago.

What are the effects or Depressants on your eyes? Do they dilate or constrict, or both (depending)?
For a project I need to know the effects depressants have on the eyes. Dilate or constrict. Or do certain types have different effects? Please help :\ Asked by Joelle Dotzler 6 months ago.

"Depressants" is not a specific group of medications and it is often subject to misinterpretation because individual people define depressants differently. In reality a depressant slows down the CNS by methods like reducing the activity of neurons and reducing the number of firings. Miosis (constricted eyes, pin point pupils) is very prevalent with opioid analgesics (narcotic pain killers). Examples include Codeine, Morphine, Heroin, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Oxymorphone, Hydromorphone, Methadone, Demerol, and Fentanyl. Doriden, a sedative/hypnotic also causes miosis. Opioids don't really reduce activity (depress) the CNS but they do cause some of the effects true depressants cause like anxiolysis, sedation, and somnolence. Opioids are often considered depressants but they really are not. Central nervous system (CNS) depressants are benzodiazepines (Valium, Ativan, Xanax), barbiturates (Secobarbital, phenobarbital), "Z" drugs (Ambien, Lunesta, Imovane), chloral hydrate, Miltown (meprobamate), alcohol, and a few other highly uncommon drugs like Quaaludes (methaqualone) and Doriden (Glutethimide). Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) is also a CNS depressant. Barbiturates and GHB can cause nystagmus (involuntary eye movement "jerky eyes"). Drugs that cause mydriasis (dilated pupils) are primarily stimulants and also hallucinogens. Amphetamines, cocaine, LSD, MDMA (ecstasy) are good examples. Answered by Alisha Coman 6 months ago.
