Cannabis, oxycodone and mental health

Posted by in Doctor X files, Mental health

  I’m concerned about how certain drugs could have a long term effect on my psychological state. I’ve been a heavy pot user for about a year now, just quiting two weeks ago. I’ve tried LSD twice, and I’ve been on and off vicodin for about two months. For some time now, I’ve been struggling with really strange mental problems, which are difficult to describe but I’ll put it like this: they feels like anxiety attacks, but I have no idea what I’m anxious about. I can tell myself over and over that everything is fine and nothing is wrong, but I still...

Oxycodone problems…

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drug dependence

  I took about 300 milligrams of oxycodone a day for about 5 years (by the way, it was the best 5 years of my life, work, family etc.), but then of course the big crack down began (pill mills etc) making it extremely difficult to obtain easily, so I had to stop as I did not feel like driving around to 300 pharmacies a day trying to fill my legally obtained prescription. Anyways it has now been about 3 years since I stopped taking them regularly, but to this day I feel as if it is my first day off of them, absolute no energy, tired constantly, no interest in anything, my gut is all screwed...
