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...

DMT use in mental health problems

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  A friend is interested in trying DMT after I recently introduced her boyfriend to it. There is a history of schizophrenia in her family while she herself has been diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum. She is also currently diagnosed with depression and an anxiety disorder. Do you think DMT might be particularly hazardous for her and, if reasonably safe, are there any special precautions that should be taken?     Yes, in this case, the use of DMT or other psychedelics is formally contraindicated. Use of these substances is not recommended  and /or familiar history of schizophrenia....

Drug use in diverticulitis

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  I had stomach issues lately and after a CT Scan, doctor confirmed I have a Diverticulitis. Now I’m taking antibiotics (Amoxicillin) and painkillers and waiting to get better. My question is, taking drugs like amphetamines or mdma (not during antibiotics treatment) is still safe for me? I’m not talking of daily (ab)use, but 2-3 times in a month.     If medical treatment works correctly,you are free from symptoms and you can have a normal life, it is unlikely that common recreational dosages of MDMA or amphetamines will have a negative impact in your disease. Theoretically, it is...

Cocaine and chest pain

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  I’ve been having chest pain for a few days now (left side/pectoral and in the back too, under my shoulder blade) I’ve perhaps pulled something while working but I also noticed it the most when coming down from cocaine use. I also heard that GHB withdrawal causes chest pains and muscle tightness I’ve tried a few things to fix it including benzos but alas it continues to bother me heavily. What is your advice I would rather avoid seeing my doctor unless needed but if it continues to bother me I wil have no choice…     If your chest pain is related to cocaine it should...

Surgery after psychedelic use

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  Is it good to stay off of psychdelics if one is going under anesthesia for a surgery?     Interactions between classical psychedelics and anaesthetic medications is unlikely. Anyway, as a general rule, it is recommendable to stay off of any psychoactive drug (and any other non-necessary drug or treatment) a few days (2-3) before undergoing anaesthesia.

Blood pressure and amphetamines

Posted by in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  I posted on here around the beginning of the year about a bad time I had with some pure amphetamine and unknowingly potentiating it with baking soda, which I take regularly for heartburn.I’m not having breathing issues anymore, but I’ve noticed my pulse is remaining consistantly high during the day. According to my cheap BP meter, it’s around 100-120bpm. My blood pressure is pretty much normal, avg. 135 over 85. I’ve stopped using all amphetamines and stimulants, no more decongestant in the morning or caffeinated soda or coffee (i have a tea once in awhile). I do...
