Answer: The words "harmful" and "dangerous" should explain the bodily threat posed by many drugs, especially those that are controlled, experimental, or illegal.
Experimenting with drugs exposes you to types of damage (heart, brain, nervous system, kidneys) that your body cannot easily repair. And because each person has a slightly different body structure and metabolism, a dosage that is harmless to one person could kill or injure another person.
This is in addition to the fact that some drugs (like alcohol) impair judgment and motor skills, so you could be killed or critically injured while under their influence.
Answer: Yes, generic drugs are the same chemical as a brand name medication. An example is Clonazepam, the generic name of Klonopin. Both are the same things. Generic medications are cheaper than brand names because you are not paying for the advertising that the name has contributed to.
Answer: Im sure there are several. In all my collecting of partially useless information I have found that dubya dubya dubya dot EROWID dot org is an amazing drug resource that spans pharmaseuticals to all naturally occurring intoxicants. Specifically I would think any amphetamine, of which there are many, would show up. Dexedrine is the first to come to mind, or adderall....There are many drugs prescribed for ADD, ADHD, AADD, and other impulse controll behaviors and possibly for things like epilepsy. Its not concrete, but I hope it helped.
Answer: Bioavailability is used to describe the fraction of an administered dose of unchanged drug that reaches the systemic circulation, so we need chemically stable drug in order to increase the chance of drug absorbance and thus increased bioavailability.
Answer: The drugs with toxicity or side-effects that outweigh their therapeutic usefulness, so that public health and welfare are protected by prohibiting their production, manufacture, export, import, trade, distribution, supply, possession or use, except in amounts required for medical and cure.
Answer: All drugs are dangerous when abused - even the ones your doctor prescribes. Alcohol is legal, but it is arguably the most dangerous because your odds of being addicted to it are approximately one in 10.
In long, Yes the LD50 (the lethal dose for 50% of the tested population) is the measure of how toxic a drug is... for instance THC (the active compound in cannabis) has an LD50 (oral) of 1270 milligrams per kilo of body weight, whereas the LD50 (oral) of Diamorphine (aka heroin) is as low as 2.6mg/kilo, making it 489 times more toxic than THC.
Componding this is that the pharmokinetics of each drug differ significantly depending on the method of administration, meaning that a safe dose for ingestion (where only maybe 30% at most of the drug will reach your bloodstream) is a lot higher than for rectal/vaginal routes (suppositories or enema) and intramuscular injections which themselves would need a higher dose than an intraveinous injection.
Answer: Illegal drugs are dangerous because the purity and correct dosage are unregulated. These unknowns can lead to accidental overdose and in some cases poisoning from added chemicals. All drugs both legal and illegal can be dangerous when not used carefully.
Answer: Firstly the word dangerous is associated with something that is potentially harmful to someone.
Thus it would be a very bad idea to experiment with any of these narcotics; either on yourself or on any other individual. The one underlining problem is that these drugs are very addictive. another reason is that they may cause a drug overdose and you may die.
