Stupid question but i dont want to kill myself, if i can help it. 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?

I have been Injecting Crystal meth for almost 2 years heavily. My arms are constantly bruised and my veins are all hard, like cords under my skin. Its been about 16-18 hours since my last shot, and while i dont feel like im experiencing withdrawal, last night i started to get extremely dizzy, and the frequency and severity is increasing. I m concerned about blood blockage to or from my brain due to a clot or something. Should i go to the ER now or try to treat at home with a shot to see if i am in fact just detoxing or some baby aspirin?
