Adequate age for using cannabis

Posted on Ene 10, 2017 in Doctor X files, Pattern of use

  What would you tell someone 15-22 who came to see you and said they were thinking about using cannabis? “Everyone says it’s great fun and safer than drinking. Enlightened governments are legalizing it around the world.  Some of my friends do it and they are still getting good grades.”  What would you tell this fictional, curious, would be cannabis consumer?   My understanding of your opinion of psychedelics is to take them infrequently and integrate the experience into your life before dropping again.  Do you think the same applies to mota? For over fifty years we...

Liver protector efficacy

Posted on Ene 2, 2017 in Doctor X files, Other drug question

  As a MD, have you ever heard of anything like this? Lets say you drink a lot, and quit, and want to cleanse your liver and detox it and help it regrow. Is this even legit? As far as something Dr. Group has on his site (clearnet site guys). ?     Liver structure and function can be affected by alcohol and some drugs (both prescription and recreational-illegal). If you take too much alcohol and drugs your liver may experiment toxic effects. Liver has a quick (and also limited) ability to regenerate its cells.

Alcohol and GHB differences

Posted on Dic 15, 2016 in Doctor X files, Other drug question

  Can I replace ghb instead of alcohol ?     GHB and alcohol are relatively similar in effects and risks. Both can lead to dependence with daily use and both can be very toxic in overdose. Alcohol is easier to handle for most people and accidents on overdose are less common. On the other hand, GHB is probably less toxic for liver and brain than alcohol. You can replace GHB instead of alcohol, but it is always important to take precautions...

Alcohol withdrawal

Posted on Dic 6, 2016 in Doctor X files, Drug dependence

  Is it possible to get physical withdrawals from having a 2 glasses of wine (11-12%) every nite for over 18 months?     In a technique, strict way, daily intake of 2 glasses of wine is equivalent to 2-3 units of alcohol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_of_alcohol) Daily intake below 4 units of alcohol in men, and below 2 units in women is considered “low risk”. But these are theoretical considerations. Most people will not develop physical withdrawals from this pattern of use but there are also  psychological, behavioural, social and motivational aspects. It is...
