        • Addiction vs. Dependence


          from Karbonshark Added

          Is there a difference between Physical Dependence and Addiction? Everyday over 100 people in the United States die as a result of prescription drug overdose. And among all of the prescriptions doctors frequently write, narcotics for pain often top the list! Narcotics are drugs that are designed to reduce pain, but very often, over use tends to lead to physical dependence and drug addiction. While drug dependence and addiction often go hand in hand, many people are surprised to hear that they are actually very different. Drug Dependence Lets start by defining dependence. Dependence occurs when the body develops tolerance to a drug, which then results in the body needing higher doses of that same drug to achieve the same effect. For example, a patient taking 500 mg of Vicodin every month may find that the drug might not have the same effect years later. This would cause someone to need a higher dose for the same effect, and as this continues, your body develops a physical dependence on the drug. What many people don't understand is that this process is completely involuntary. If someone has a chronic illness or chronic pain, they will depend on pain medication every day. If the pain persists, the medication use persists, and ultimately dependence forms. As the body becomes dependent on a chemical, discontinuing that chemical produces a drug withdrawal symptom. Withdrawal symptoms can be extremely painful, and sometimes even harmful to the body (withdrawal symptoms often cause severe pain, increased heart rate and anxiety). For this reason people continue taking the medication, and this physical dependence leads to drug addiction. Drug Addiction Drug addiction, on the other hand, occurs when people use medication to seek a feeling of mental wellbeing, instead of pain relief. Interestingly enough, it is widely assumed that the path to addiction is voluntary, but often times it is not. Physical dependence to a drug can lead to mental addiction, and at some point, the cycle and the ability to stop using becomes compromised. Drug addiction is a brain disease. It affects numerous brain circuits involved in pathways that control reward, motivation, and inhibition, all of which take over common behavior patterns. People will experience uncontrollable drug cravings that persist despite destructive consequences. Drug dependence and addiction are quite complicated, and effective treatment often takes a multi-faceted approach. One overlooked treatment component approach tends to be daily life after rehabilitation. It is not always easy to transition back into day-to-day life after rehab. Recovery communities like Transcend Recovery Community caters to this demographic, assisting in this transition and preventing relapse.

            • Antibiotics: Part 2


              from Karbonshark Added

              Counselling points Almost everyone has taken an antibiotic at some point, but a high percentage of patients do not take them correctly. Antibiotics are a class of medicine that are used to treat bacterial infections. These types of infections occur when a patient is exposed to certain types of bacteria that then multiply inside the body. What many find surprising is that our bodies already contain many of types of bacteria, some that are beneficial and some that are harmful. The goal for all patients is to try to maintain a healthy balance between the two. Since antibiotics are designed to kill bacteria, patients don’t realize that the medication they’re taking is actually disrupting the natural bacteria balance in the body. The goal of antibiotics is to get rid of only the harmful bacteria, but unfortunately, antibiotics are not always smart enough to tell the difference between good and bad bacteria. Very often, antibiotics remove all of the bacteria in your body (stomach and GI tract, specifically). The end result is generally side effects including: upset stomach, diarrhea, yeast infections, etc. So how do we solve the problem of needing antibiotics to fight off infection, but also wanting to avoid pesky side effects? The answer is probiotics. Probiotics A great counseling tip is to always take probiotics along with antibiotics. The word probiotic originates from the Greek words for “promoting (pro) life (biotic).” Probiotics are live, healthy bacteria that help restore the balance in your GI tract. If you find yourself on antibiotics, remember that a probiotic (found over the counter) is an extremely useful supplement to add to your diet, especially if your therapy is 7 days or longer. The longer your body is exposed to antibiotics and flushing out healthy bacteria, the higher risk of associated upset stomach and side effects. The antibiotic is in your system killing any and all bacteria it sees. That process isn’t easy on your body, especially if it is dragging out longer than 7 days. . Being proactive and taking a probiotic will help alleviate the side effects your body is experiencing – think of it as replenishing some of the vital bacteria you need. And for those of you who prefer to incorporate natural sources of probiotics into your diets, you can find naturally occurring probiotics in certain foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and miso.

                    • Children's vs. Adult Medication


                      from Karbonshark Added

                      When it comes to medication, children and adult medications are drastically different and may be more harmful to your child than you would think. Children’s vs. Adult medications differ and doses are often based on weight. Many parents assume that when they don’t have the children’s dose on hand, they can give their child adult medications by cutting the dose in half. In some cases this would be ok (i.e. Benadryl). The children’s brand has the exact same ingredient as the adult (ingredient = diphenhydramine). The only difference is that the children’s dose is lowered: Adult Benadryl = 25 mg, and Children’s Benadryl = 12.5 mg. Thus making it acceptable to give a child half the dose of the adult version. However, this is not a safe habit to acquire! One major misconception that many adults/parents have is that Pepto-Bismol and Children’s Pepto are the same. This mistake could be very harmful to a child. Even though these both have the word “Pepto” and seem like similar brands, the ingredients are completely different. The ingredients in each include: Pepto-Bismol: Active ingredient = bismuth subsalicylate Children’s Pepto: Active ingredient = calcium carbonate Bismuth subsalicylate (found in Pepto-Bismol) is very similar to Aspirin, and should never be given to a child. When giving an aspirin-containing medication to a child it could lead to something called Reye’s Syndrome. Reye’s Syndrome is a very serious condition that often affects children recovering from a virus, and is very commonly triggered by Aspirin use. It causes sudden brain and liver damage and can be life threatening. It used to be more common, but because Aspirin is no longer recommended for use in children the risk has lowered. In any case, you should never give Pepto-Bismol to a child. Calcium carbonate (found in Children’s Pepto) is an antacid that is very safe for children. It is actually the exact same ingredient found in Tums! As you can see, assuming these two medications are the same simply based on brand name is extremely dangerous. It is most important to look at the active ingredients, not just the brand name. As a general rule, when the active ingredients and dosages are the same, then the medications are interchangeable.
