I am suffering from drug abuse and trying to stop im going through withdrawls and thinking about injecting snorting or orally taking over my doesage perscribed to me, i have infront of me venlafaxine xr 75mg/ citalopram 40mg and trazodone 50mg will it kill me? will it even get me high? I know this is not a question to be asked but im having a really hard time right now and cant go to a methadone clinic right now i dont want to kill myself but its more then likely i may end up trying any of these pills and injection is my prefered method i know a doctor should not be giving advise as such but if i am stupid enough and hurting enough to go through with it, what should i do and how should i do it?

I was wondering about something regarding drug relapse and subsequent withdrawals. If a drug abuser (we ll say heroin) has gone through the withdrawal symptoms for about a week and is past the difficult hump of the physical withdrawal but then they take another large amount of H only once, will this very brief relapse cause a second set of withdrawals? Will it start all over?

Hi I m not quite sure when i noticed them but I have these raised, large red sores on my arms. When opened, the sores secrete a clear, sticky liquid that dries quickly. There is minimal to no bleeding when sores are opened. I m not sure what they are, I have been cleaning them with hydrogen peroxide and neosporin daily and covering them with bandaids but they do not appear to be getting better. Please help!!
