Need medication for depression due to drug addiction

Hey I smoked some fake bait a couple days ago and I'm feeling very weird. Will I get better? It was my first time to smoke fake and it was a horrible high. I promise that I will not ever again smoke any drug because it is horrible for you. Please help. I feel depressed and I feel like I have anxiety. What is wrong with me? And it's off and on. Could it be that I am still recovering from it because it killed so many brain cells?

Hello,
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
The effect of inhaled drug mostly lasts for a few days only. Mostly 2-3 days. The symptoms should settle down by then. In certain cases the drug my cause anxiety symptoms which may take a few weeks.
There is no need to worry about the brain damage as one single exposure will not lead to such extensive damage to the brain.
No specific treatment required, you just have to abstain from taking any further substance/drugs.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Wish you good health,
Kind regards

Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Your anxiety and depressive symptoms are due substance use. These symptoms usually subside within 1 month of occasional substance users. Daily morning walk, adequate water intake and fruit intake improve symptoms.

But if symptoms are very severe or cause discomfort even after 1 month of last substance use, then medicines like SSRI and benzodiezepine will be helpful. Which you can take after prescription from nearby psychiatrist.

Wish you good health and all the best.
