Ohridjin And FrsT Med Eewsez Uhv Herroin

Heroin was first synthesized from morphine in 1874 and then made commercially available in 1898 by the Bayer Pharmaceutical Company. Considered a miracle drug, it was used to treat headaches, colds and other common ailments. Heroin, ironically, was given to active morphine and codeine addicts as an alternative to—and as a solution for—their addiction.

The unrestricted distribution of heroin led to [a reported large] number of [possible too frequent users] and a resulting rising crime rate. As legal and mental health concerns began to grow throughout the United States, authorities took note and ultimately banned its manufacture and distribution in 1924, just three decades after its introduction.

Why do we keep prescribing Heroin to patients?

So how do we begin to address these opioid prescribing issues?

Non-opioid medications and alternative therapies should be used first, with opioids saved as a last resort.

Educating patients that pain is a normal result of injury or recovery from surgery and that the expectation of being treated with opioids to achieve a painless state is not only unrealistic, but can be [dangerous and even potentially] life threatening.

Heroin…What is it?

An opiate…drug processed from morphine and extracted from certain poppy plants. Heroin comes in a white or brownish powder, or a black sticky substance known as “black tar heroin.” Often “cut” with other drugs or substances such as sugar or powdered milk. User is unaware how much actual heroin is being used, creating likelihood of overdose.

Street Names

Big H, Black Tar, Chiva, Hell Dust, Negra, Smack, Thunder


**How is it used?*

Injected, smoked, or sniffed/snorted. High purity heroin is usually snorted or smoked.

Paraphernalia:

Needle, Pipe, Small spoon, Straw or tube Straw or tube

The Various Ways Heroin Is Taken

Heroin is [an oft reused] drug that is used in various ways. In addition to the classic injection method, it can be snorted, sniffed and smoked, depending mainly on the purity of the drug and the preference of the user.

Heroin can be injected into a vein or a muscle. It can be smoked in a pipe or mixed with a marijuana joint or a regular cigarette. Its smoke can be inhaled through a straw, a process known as "chasing the dragon." As a powder, it can be snorted.

Users who inject heroin feel is effects the quickest. When heroin is mainlined, users can usually begin to experience a feeling of euphoria within seven to eight seconds. When it is smoked, the user will typically feel its peak effects in 10 to 15 minutes.

What are the effects of Heroin?

Heroin reduces physical pain, and can produce feelings of wellbeing, euphoria, and contentment.
Heroin is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant, and can slow down breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.
Side effects can include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, slurred speech, constipation, and itchiness.
An average dose of heroin can vary widely, based on purity, tolerance and route of ingestion.
When injected, the effects are felt within a few seconds. When smoked, within a few minutes, and when snorted, within 10-15 minutes.
The effects of heroin typically last 3-5 hours.

How does it affect the body?

Initial surge of euphoria or “rush,” followed by a twilight state of sleep and wakefulness
Physical symptoms of use include: drowsiness, respiratory depression, constricted pupils, nausea, a warm flushing of the skin, dry mouth, and heavy extremities.
Overdose symptoms: slow and shallow breathing, blue lips and fingernails, clammy skin, convulsions, coma, and possible death.

How heroin kills people

Injecting heroin creates euphoric effects sooner and more intensely than snorting, eating or smoking it. The user feels instantly relaxed and free from pain and anxiety.
Here’s what happens: The body converts heroin to morphine, which is very similar to the body’s natural endorphins – the chemicals your brain makes to reduce pain and stress. The morphine then binds to the brain’s “opioid receptors” just as endorphins would, reducing pain, relaxing muscles and creating euphoria. Also, breathing becomes much slower and shallower.

However, too much of the drug at one time can cause so much relaxation that the body literally “forgets to breathe”. Even when you’re asleep, your body keeps breathing. But opioid overdose drives the breathing instinct so far down that it can shut off. The result is oxygen starvation, organ damage, brain death and finally, complete body death.

Heroin overdose can also cause sudden low blood pressure which reduces blood flow to the brain and body. It can also cause irregular heart rhythm, which can also reduce blood supply. And it can cause excess fluid in the lungs – called pulmonary edema – which makes it difficult or impossible to breathe.

Studies show that former heroin users – like Philip Seymour Hoffman – are far more likely to overdose when they go back on heroin than new users. This may be because they don’t realize that they can’t tolerate the high doses they used to take when they were heavy users.

Unintentional heroin poisoning, also known as “accidental overdose”, includes heroin overdoses resulting from the drug misuse, drug abuse, and taking too much of a drug while taking other drugs (for medical or recreational reasons). This can be brought about through nasal administration of heroin, injecting heroin, or mixing alcohol and heroin. For example, when you snort heroin, you deliver high doses of the narcotic opiate almost instantly to the bloodstream, and it crosses the blood-brain barrier. Breathing and heart rate can slow, leading to coma or death as a result.

  • Heroin overdose – How much is too much?

Because significant tolerance to respiratory depression develops quickly with continued use and is lost just as quickly during withdrawal, it is often difficult to determine whether a heroin lethal overdose was unintentional, suicide or homicide. Some sources quote the lethal dose, for an average 170lbs opiate-naive individual is between 75 and 375 mg, again depending on the route of administration. Depending on drug interactions and numerous other factors, death from overdose can take anywhere from several minutes to several hours.

However, illicit heroin, sold on the street under the names “junk”, “smack” or “skag” is of widely varying and unpredictable purity. The average purity of street heroin varies between 11% and 72% depending on the demographic region. On the other hand, heroin that has been seized at the border has purity levels many higher. This variation has led to users suffering from overdoses as a result of the heroin missing a stage on its journey from port to end user, where are added further adulterants and the strength of the drug reduces. This means that the user may prepare what they consider to be a moderate dose while actually taking far more than intended.

Additionally, tolerance typically decreases after a period of abstinence. If this occurs and the user takes a dose comparable to their previous use, the user may experience drug effects that are much greater than expected, potentially resulting in a dangerous overdose.

  • Heroin overdose complications

A heroin overdose has serious prompt and severe manifestations throughout the body and the vital organs. Here are the most common heroin overdose complications
Airways and lungs: slow, shallow and difficult breathing, or no breathing at all
Cardiovascular: heart and blood low blood pressure, weak pulse
Eyes, ears, nose and throat: dry mouth, pinpoint pupils, tongue discoloration
Nervous system: coma, delirium, disorientation, drowsiness, muscle spasticity
Skin: nails and lips turning blue
Stomach and intestines: constipation, spasms

Heroin is commonly injected into a vein and both of the ways to inject heroin come with different health risks related to sharing contaminated needles. Skin-popping more often results in abscesses, and direct injection more often leads to fatal overdose and also to hepatitis C and HIV infection.

Still, a heroin overdose is immediately reversible with an opoid antagonist injection and recovery normally occurs within 24 to 48 hours. Heroin is often mixed with other substances, which can cause additional symptoms and organ damage. In that case, hospitalization may be necessary.

A heroin overdose took the life of 21-year-old Walmart employee, Alysa Ivy. And a heroin overdose took the life of 46-year-old Hollywood star, Philip Seymour Hoffman. Do an Internet search of “heroin overdose deaths,” and you see reports of 31 suspected deaths in just four days in Dayton, Ohio; 70 in just one month in Philadelphia; and 571 deaths in Palm Beach in 2016. No matter who you are, how much money you make, or where you live, you are likely to be impacted–directly or indirectly–by the crisis our country is facing with regards to heroin use and overdose.

The number of deaths due to heroin overdose quintupled between the years 2010 and 2016. According to CDC reports, in 2016, more than 15,000 individuals died from heroin overdose. And, while these statistics are staggering, they may not capture the entire story. In 2017, researchers found that death certificates from six states failed to indicate the specific drug involved in overdose deaths. Because of this, the number of deaths due to heroin overdose have been “considerably understated.” Heroin overdoses have reached such epidemic proportions that the U.S. Surgeon General recently issued an advisory encouraging the friends and family of individuals at high risk for overdosing on heroin to carry the antidote: naloxone. Here’s what you need to know about heroin overdose.

  • The Science of a Heroin Overdose

With the steady increase of heroin-induced deaths, many are wondering how does heroin kill you? The following is a detailed explanation of the science of a heroin overdose.

When heroin enters the body, it travels via the bloodstream to the brain, where it is quickly converted to morphine. Morphine is then available for binding at what are called mu-opioid receptors in the brain.

Mu-opioid receptors are located throughout the brain and in the brainstem. Those located in the brainstem inhibit the workings of the respiratory centers found there, leading to a condition known as respiratory depression.

During a heroin overdose, a relatively large amount of morphine becomes available to the brain. When this large amount of morphine binds to mu-opioid receptors in the brainstem, profound respiratory depression results and the victim of a heroin overdose eventually stops breathing. When this occurs, oxygen supply to the brain and heart plunges, and the victim dies from cardiac arrest secondary to respiratory arrest.

  • Picturing Heroin Overdose

Heroin overdose is commonly pictured as something that happens to individuals who, because of inexperience, use too much of the drug. Time and again, research has shown that this picture of a heroin overdose is inaccurate.

First, heroin overdose usually affects longtime users of the drug. Research performed since the seventies has shown that the majority of heroin overdose deaths affect experienced users. Second, heroin is often not the sole cause of heroin overdose deaths. Again, studies performed over the past five decades have shown that most individuals who died of a heroin overdose were abusing other drugs at the time, including cocaine, benzodiazepines, and alcohol. Third, heroin overdose is infrequently caused by using too much of the drug. In fact, research has shown that most heroin overdose deaths occurred in people having low levels of morphine in their system.

  • What You Can do to Prevent Heroin Overdose Deaths

As rates of heroin use and heroin overdose continue to climb, it’s easy to feel helpless. But, there are actions that you can take to prevent heroin overdose deaths:
Get educated: Learn about the risks associated with heroin use, and learn about the symptoms of a heroin overdose.
Get Naloxone: Naloxone can reverse a heroin overdose and save a life. If you or someone you know is at risk of overdosing on heroin, get naloxone and learn how to use it properly.

Heroin…combined with Alcohol…[Wuhn] Drug Cocktail [ThaT Can In 5 MinnuTs Koz DeTh

A vast majority of drug related deaths begin with a mixture. In a 2003 report the Drug Abuse Warning Network cautioned us that an average of 2.7 drugs were used in fatal overdose cases.

The body reacts to different drugs in different ways. As an effect, when one drug affects breathing, and the other disturbs brain activity the body can’t keep up and eventually shuts down. The effect is synergistic, and through teamwork and toxic tendencies, the drugs can kill.

Heroin…combined with Alcohol shows us the lethal capability of a dangerous cocktail. When used together, the drugs can easily stop a person’s natural breathing pattern.

Glutamate is generally acknowledged as the most important transmitter for normal brain function. Alcoholic drinks can decrease the effects of glutamate, impairing the judgment of an individual. Combine this effect with the euphoric “high” of heroin, and the user can actually lose the drive to breathe.

Within five minutes, death through self-inflicted suffocation can shortly follow the use of the heroin alcohol cocktail.

Heroin and Cocaine…often leads to accidental overdose.

A lot of people mistakenly think this is a somewhat “safe” combination because the two drugs “cancel each other out” (think mixing alcohol with cocaine). But the truth is the effects produced by this drug combo just make it feel like they cancel one another out. You can easily become unaware of your true opiate or cocaine levels, which often leads to accidental overdose.

Unsafe And Safe PrescripTion Drug Therapies,

Methadone by itself is an opiate which causes depression of central nervous system. Methadone is a pharmacological that reduces the opiate craving as well as lessens withdrawal symptoms and if it coupled with counseling, enables to reach tolerance threshold although prevents from drowsiness and euphoria. Appropriate and safe daily dosage ranges from 20 to 30 mg in initial stages and average 60 to 100 mg at latter stages. Because of its long half-life of 24 to 36 hours, between 4 to 10 days is required to achieve a stable maintenance dosage (52–53). Several studies on methadone maintenance therapy have demonstrated conditions in which mortalities happened. Based on a cross sectional study most of the 238 patients who died in between 1990-1995 were drug users and suffered from medical illnesses. Almost 21% of the mortalities occurred in the first week of methadone treatment and 88% of these patients were polysubstance abusers. Only around 10% of deaths were related to the first week of MMT tested positive for methadone alone. In another study was reported 62 (71%) patients were involved illicit drug consumption from all 87 MMT patients ‘death. According to these studies, overdose during methadone maintenance therapy is related to polydrug use (54–56).

Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic opioid derivative and is a sectional μ-opioid agonist and κ-opioid antagonist which has less abuse potential than other opioids. Buprenorphine was initially proposed in 1978 for opioid [users] as an oral alternative opioid replacement therapy, because the intensity of the rewarding effect is milder at higher doses (57–59). Its use is promoted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services (60). Buprenorphine acts on the same receptors as heroin and morphine, alleviating drug cravings without producing the same severe “high” or hazardous side effects. Due to wide metabolism in intestinal and liver tissues, buprenorphine has a very low oral bioavailability.

In 2011, Alves et al. assessed nutritional and socio demographic characteristics of heroin addicts during detoxification program, and it was found that heroin addicts consume less than the minimum amount of vegetable, fruit and grains recommended by the food pyramid and are more eager to have sweets. Several other studies have also demonstrated that the consumption of vegetables and fruit in drug addicts are less than general population and they are more prone to consume food with low vitamin content… Increasing the dietary intake of protein and reducing simple carbohydrates in the form of vegetables and whole grains can manage the carbohydrate-metabolism health problems. Therefore, to recover from opiates addiction, patients need to consume even more amino acids and protein during the treatment process. Methadone maintenance treatment, itself, is not a favorable approach until is coupled with proper diet due to negative role of vitamins and minerals deficiencies in withdrawal process. Despite proteins and key vitamins, as well as minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, chromium, magnesium, potassium and other essential nutrients should be prescribed in detoxification programs to recovering addicts. Zinc can help to improve immune system and proper brain function (82). Many opiate and alcohol addicts have shown calcium and magnesium deficiencies due to poor diet and inadequate intake of calcium. Calcium and magnesium deficiencies are the major factors of pain and nervous/muscular disorders among addicts and alcohol consumers during detoxification programs.

Nutritional treatments for opioid WiThdrawal

In one study, 30 opioid addicts withdrawing from heroin or methadone were treated with high-dose vitamin C along with supplemental protein and a daily high-potency multivitamin-multimineral supplement (providing 500 mg per day of magnesium). The dosage of vitamin C during the first 12-24 hours was usually slightly larger than the bowel-tolerance level, and ranged from 25 to 85 g per day (in divided doses, as sodium ascorbate). After the first 12-24 hours, the dosage was reduced to some extent according to the clinical response, although it was not clear from the report how much it was reduced. After a total of 4-6 days, the dosage was reduced further to a maintenance level of 10-30 g per day. If withdrawal symptoms occurred during the first 4-6 days, the dosage of vitamin C was increased. The patients also received 9 tablespoons per day of predigested liquid protein until they were eating well. With this regimen, withdrawal symptoms typically did not occur, and the patients experienced a rapid and striking improvement in well-being…Nearly half of the patients receiving the nutritional regimen reported having used heroin, methadone, or some other drug while continuing the vitamin C-based therapy. Of those, 60% stated that the nutritional treatment blocked the effect of the drug.

An accurate and efficient nutritional intervention among drug addicts during detoxification could decrease their nutritional deficiencies and subsequently, boost up their productivity.
