Sorry SOMA is NOT ADDICTIVE! By itself. I’ve been on it for 10 yrs. each month I’d get 90 and be out 15 days later and NEVER EVER had any of the usual addicting side effects. I may lose a little sleep here and there but 4 to 5 days after I’m off it I don’t miss it at all.
A lot of this was wrong and kind of dangerous to put out there on a popular channel on a popular site some of your information or research was wrong I get what you are doing but it's fact for fact and you got a lot of facts wrong; Valium is no longer a widely abused drug being replaced by one you did get right xanax or it's counterparts ativan or klon.
Horrible view on pharmacology, better drug education is what we need.
More people like Dr Hamilton Morris are needed in this world.
Also, this guide is gonna change depending on what country.
Silly mainstream drug education.
Drugs are useful if taking correct.

donot even go there!!! people saying that soboxone is a helper to vet off of other drugs !!!! it is a habit forming drug it is a drug think about this if it isn't why do u think all these different stories about being on this stuff for 8 yrs come on !!! something isn't right and it has to be very strong to take u down from arcotics it is very strong its stronger
Never heard of ANYONE snorting Valium ??? I used to get 80mg a day though I'd rarely take it all as they sent me off my nut and I'd remember NOTHING the next day. So I'd just sell it I'd get £20 for the 8 tabs not a problem since they where out the chemist as there where a lot if fakes/pressed tablets going about some not even containing Valium! I'd have people nearly fighting with each other so the winner could buy it or they'd make little deals with each other to see who would get it that day FFS it's my script ! I think I'll decide who I sell it too !! My little brother used to get Ritalin/adderal when it was first getting prescribed the school forced my mum to put him on it! He was 5 years old FFS !! He'd only get half a tab though and not every day. How giving kids speed is a good idea I don't know !!
After surgery my nurse gave me dilaudid and she was like “I’m gonna give you your medicine now in your IV you should feel within 5-10 mins.” I felt it instantly! It was like I was floating in the clouds I told her “Umm I’ve never done drugs before but this is what heroin must feel like!” She was like “yep this is basically his little brother!” At that point I knew to work hard and be honest with myself about taking prescription drugs! Don’t get sucked in it guys! That sh¡ts good enough to fück up everything in your life!
Really? No methadone? No car-fentanyl? No bupernorphine? I've done every drug on this and been prescribed half unfortunately. But you can't mention those three? Have someone who's fucked with all the dumb shit on this list and while it's accurate heed my warning. The 3 I just mentioned will break you mentally than any drug they listed. Buphernorphine won't kill you, I suppose untapered withdrawal could, not sure though, but from experience, buphernorphine is a double edged sword it's kept me away from shit that will kill me but I'm stuck on it at the moment. Side note alcohol is more dangerous than all the substances on this list combined you can literally die from withdrawal. I'm on klonipins currently for alcohol withdrawal and klonipins can kill you too on from withdrawal. At a long underrated rate alcohol is the sleeper that kills more than these hard mentioned drugs.
If someone told me this when I was in 20's. I would say whatever or try talking to me. I do wish now that I should of listen. So, please People. When someone talks about drugs. At least TAKE and LISTEN to what they have to say. They been THERE. People and LOVE ONES do CARE.
Be safe and if you or someone need help. Call for HELP. ✌🌎
for me I got on methadone maintenance to get off opiates & Heroin once I couldn't feel opiates anymore I started to mix my methadone dose with benzos ( Xanax kolonopin Valium ativan) and then I could get that beautiful feeling again I know it sounds sick but im 34-year-old I started at 14yrs old its so hard nothing compares to that feeling I feel hopeless im clean at the moment but I know one day I wish I never met it I wonder what I could have been
It's all about views and dollars these days. Nobody cares how anything affects people anymore, that's why Your wife is on Ashley Madison, ur gf is still on Tinder and ur kid is on Porn hub - "That's your problem" $$$$
I have been prescribed some of these meds. I didn't mix anything that I wasn't supposed to. Ambien & I aren't friends. I don't have the mentioned side effects for my patches. If I did, I wouldn't feel my pain. Pain meds don't stop you from feeling pain - even headaches!! I'm under a pain drs care. Yes, the opiods are narcotics & are addictive. But people get the wrong idea because of ignorance. As long as you take your meds as prescribed, it should be fine. You're kept on a manageable dose so you can wean if it's needed. There's a HUGE difference between pain control & being addicted. 😉

The young guy you see eating Valium like smarties (candy) is taken from a BBC documentary about which drugs are popular in different area's in the UK. The young guy IS an addict of Valium or whatever he is being sold on the street that the drug's claims to be Valium.He comes from a deprived area in Dundee in Scotland. He isn't an actor he was in this drugged state while he was being filmed. This is such a tragic waste of a young life. Too many young people end up being addicted because they feel there is no future or hope for them. Until WE the populace get behind these young kids; society is going to fall into further disrepair. Eventually it will not be able to turn back time to save this generation and our future on this planet.
As for Fentanyl it's mainly used in operating theatres for surgery.
Thank you for providing an organized list of presrciption drugs easily accessible, and listing down their symptoms. Teenagers will TOTALLy not use this vid to find prescription drugs for recreational purposes
Notice how all these meds are usually deadly when you combine shit they tell you not to. Then when you end up dead your family wants to sue and get the med banned so real people with real pain can not get relief they deserve all because someone decided to not listen and add shit to the meds just so they can get high or get a higher effect from the meds. And further more I know some drug companies did downplay how easy it would be to become addicted to the med ( if taken wrong or for longer period then recommended) I still do not see how it is anyone else fault but the person taking the med when they are the ones taking the med wrong or not using it the way it was intended to be used. Everyone wants to blame either the drug itself or the doctor for giving it. but then when the doctor wont give it then you will complain to the medical board or their boss for not treating your pain properly so these doctors are in a double edged sward with this. Either they are damned if they do and damned if they don't. People need to start taking personal responsblity for their own doings. Terminal cancer patients needs these meds that you guys are abuseing then when something bad happens you want them all banned then we who are dying end up dying in a lot of pain due to your mistakes now everyone makes mistakes yes but do not make everyone else pay for them. I am so tired of the poor me deal with these druggies saying they didn't know if they drank beer and ate some ambien bad thigs would happen when it clearly says on the bottle of the meds and the dr even tells you not to the same with ALL the other meds, I have 0 sympathy for any of these druggies who are careless then trys to have the much needed meds banned just to save them from them selfs because they have no self control. us with terminal cancer and other horrible painful illnesses needs these meds and I will fight for our human rights to have proper pain control rather or not we are dying or are just have a very bad painful illnesses.
it's stupid documentaries and news headlines like this as well as people using pain medication as a recreational drug that hurts legitimate people who need pain medication to Simply function due to medical illness or injury that there is no fix for the injury or a birth defect. people really need to open their eyes as well as all these stupid lawmakers and media who sync that everybody taking pain medication is simply out to get high. in 2005 I fell and broke my back and was paralyzed I can walk again and mentally I feel like I should be able to do everything I used to do yet my back does not agree. you cannot turn off your brain and come to terms that you cannot physically do what you used to do nor can you just lay on the couch till the day you die especially when you're single parent with two kids like myself. if anybody can please tell me away that they know of where they can fix my back and take the pain away please let me know. they done surgery and fused my back to try to save my life I'm very fortunate to be back where I am physically but at the end of the day my back hurts everyday some days are better some days are worse this is the only answer that I have to try to survive and not blow my brains out due to the pain.
If you rupture a Fentanyl patch you can OD. I had a stupid doctor that told me to cut a patch in half.
I found out later that your are not suppose to cut them. Was flipping through the channels and saw a show about fentanyl. (This was in 2007). That idiot doctor could have killed me.
A week after I had my daughter last year, I unexpectedly developed a serious complication and was rushed back to the hospital, where I required an operation & had to stay for 8 days. While there I was given a medication through my IV that’s called Stadol???(not sure if I spelled that correctly)
In all honesty though, I can see exactly why people get hooked on those types of medication. I can still vividly remember the very first dose I was given & the immediate pain relief along with an overwhelming sense of intense euphoria that it gave me.
Any person here who thinks weed is bad for you fuck off. You physically cannot OD you would have to smoke 1500 pounds in 15 minutes. And only 1 in 10 people actually get a addiction. It has been prescribed to help fight ADHD. Legalizing weed might generate billions of dollars in tax revenue
Marijuana helps treat Parkinson's disease. actually CUTS lung cancer tumor growth in half. It helps treat throat cancer. Helps treat liver cancer
Jesus, the US are a nation of druggies! Not surprising as I've read that even the kids line up in school to take their meds. Something has gone awry with the American Dream. I thought they were all happy there with their big houses and lots of money!
@10:20 how tf do you abuse Zoloft? When it makes your body slowly adjust to it, and it works on your noninhibitory neurons meaning it isn’t addictive. I remember I took 10 Zoloft in a day, felt a little bit more social but that’s it!
SpiritualLight 4 same my doctor never told me I’d have severe side effects of mixing my SSRI (Zoloft) with adderall. Of course you had severe withdrawals bro because it has the same chemical reaction of your brain as MDA does. Taking any prescription drug for everyday for the rest of your life will turn you into an emotionless zombie who is a psychopath.
Doctors are hippocrates. I told my doctor I occasionally smoke weed. Then she said the only concern is the affects on the “developing brain.” But yet her ass is prescribing me adderall and an SSRI which has “unknown affects” on the developing brain.
Only a 'kid' would use nancy reagans bullshit 'just say no' narrative.Its serious & its deep and its no place for toe dippers.Holier than though never comes over well.We listen to experience as humans,well some do,and i can tell from your opening line you have none.Literally.What, you sat next to someone who smoked a joint once and it smelled funny is probably the extent of your 'knowledge'.This is about views and money-how refreshing.
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
