First EC International Report: Heroin adulterated with fentanyl derivatives in cryptomarkets

This is the first of a series of periodic reports that will analyse and discuss the results of our Energy Control-International Drug Checking Service. This report is focused on the problem of heroin adulterated with fentanyl and fentanyl derivatives. Drug checking services are useful tools for reducing drug-related incidents, monitoring new substances or patterns of use, and providing information and assessment to drug users. Energy Control (ABD) has offered a drug checking service since 1999 in Spain, as part of an integrated harm reduction service for recreational drug users, and since...

Benzodiacepine overdose

Posted by in Adverse effects, Doctor X files

  Can an overdose on xanax slow down the breathing to 6 breaths per minute? (I thought that was a symptom of opiate overdose?) and if xanax does slow down breathing this much, is this considered dangerous?   Although bradypnea (decreased respiratory rate) is more typical of opiate overdose, it is a possible symptom of benzos overdose. Opiate overdose can kill a person by respiratory depression, this is very unlikely overdosing benzos.

Buspirone interacion whith some drugs

Posted by in Doctor X files, Mental health

In theory, effects of marijuana should not...

  Instead of tobacco, what should I put into my weed, which is less destructive, but doesn’t smell/taste like shit? I know I know, ppl should be smoking pure green, but I don’t have the wallet for that.   Combustion of all vegetals leads to toxic substances that can alter respiratory airway. There is discussion about if tobacco is more or less toxic than cannabis but, in any case, smoking plants is always unhealthy. The healthiest alternative is vaporizing. There are certified vaporizers for cannabis therapeutic use but the problem is that they are expensive. But there are also...

Drugs in supraventricular tachycardia

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  I have a friend who has/suffers from Supra ventricular tachycardia. He’s had a few attacks in his life and is in the process of seeing experts about his heart. The recent scans he has had have actually shown that his heart is fine and healthy apart from some ‘faulty wiring’ (which I don’t quite understand) and an ablation could be done to fix that. It’s worth noting he suffers from quite bad anxiety at times and I personally believe this could be the possible cause but doctors don’t seem to accept or address that. Anyway to the question, for someone who...
