Thought you would get a kick out of this school assignment
    #26622617 - 04/23/20 05:08 PM (9 months, 28 days ago)

So We had to go over like five different types of drugs basically answering all the same questions... one of which being psycho stimulants. I tried not to give myself away too much with it

Addiction Worksheet
Psychostimulants

Drug Name: Psychostimulants
DMT (dimethyltryptamine), Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), Peyote (mescaline), Psilocybin (4-phosphoryloxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine
1. What are the street names?
DMT, Acid, blotters, cubes, dots, window panes, cactus, buttons, mesc, shrooms, magic mushies, mushies, cubes, purple passion

2. How is the drug taken?
generally eaten or sublingual, some can be smoked.

3. What is the sought after desirable effect by user?
Hallucinations, spiritual experiences, detachment from sense of self and body, management of depression and anxiety.

4. How is the desired effect produced in the body?
It is not entirely understood, but serotonin receptors are believed to be the cause. In the case of LSD, it is believed that it binds to serotonin receptors and effectively “gets stuck” for the duration of the trip causing its psychedelic effects.

5. What other physiological or psychological effects are produced?
Cognition- intense sensory experience, inaccurate sense of time, insomnia
Nutrition- anorexia (as in "lack of appetite" this is nursing school folks)
Mood and affect- paranoia and anxiety

6. Is there a potential for tolerance?
While they are not physically addictive, tolerance does accumulate after just one dose, and cross tolerance between all of them is present.

7. How does the user appear when under the influence?
Anxious or paranoid, or on the flip side, blissful and connected. May talk about unusual things or mention what they’re hearing and seeing.

8. Are there any screening tools or laboratory tests available for healthcare providers to determine if a patient is under the influence? If so, describe:
There are not any useful screenings as the drugs leave the body so quickly, however it is easy to visually tell and with an interview to know if someone is under the influence

9. What are the presenting symptoms when the user is immediately coming off the ‘high’? (Not withdrawal)
Anxiety and paranoia, groggy and tired, sometimes sad or depressed, difficulty expressing thoughts

10. What is the substance abuse rehabilitation process for this drug? (Medication and psychotherapy)
Abuse is not much of an issue with these types of drugs, but if one is psychologically addicted, personal therapy with emphasis on behavioral therapy may be beneficial.

11. Any other information that you would like to share?
These types of hallucinogens are not naturally addictive and while they are not all good, many studies have recently show their potential to not only help those with severe depression but help cancer patients or those with chronic illnesses through the difficult ends of their illnesses. There is a large movement to not only decriminalize these substances, specifically psilocybin, but to legalize them. Mushrooms have already become decriminalized in Denver.

I believe central nervous system “stimulants”are their own class of psychoactive drug,

ex:  cocaine, MDMA (psych-empathogen-methamphetmine stimulant) , amphetamines (adderall, Dexedrine etc) , methylphenidate (Ritalin), methamphetamines , cathinines etc,

And,

That most the classical  (but not all) psychedelics are actually classified in their own CNS/psychoactive drug category: “Hallucinogens”.

Ex.  DMT, psilocybin, psilocin, 4-aco-Dmt, etc,

Still, cool beans man, :thumbup:

On #7 you could include dilated pupils being common.

On #9 you didn’t mention anything about positive effects. Afterglow is a fairly common symptom of withdrawal. :sun:

Anyway, good job, I bet you will get a solid B. :tongue2:

Yeah you failed the assignment, but it a fun read.

They wanted to hear about stimulants - coke, amphs, maybe mdma

Withdrawal syndrome has a strict medical definition and most psychedelics don’t fit it, least not in most cases.

After glow isn’t a symptom of withdrawal.  It’s symptoms of either great revitalization , emotional or psychological catharsis, and chemically is likely related to increased concentrations of various neurotransmitters.

In a sentence , a lasting sense of well being, that occurs after the drug itself has worn off.

Ahhhhhhhhhh!

I assumed the list of specific drug names were given to him and his answers started on question #1

:whathesaid:

Edit: The Blind Ass, yes, you are right, but, I knew what I meant. :tongue:

I would have flunked this test, and should probably take remedial reading classes too. Although, the questions themselves do make more sense when thinking stimulants.

they did give me the list of drugs and I started on #1, so no they weren't looking for stimulants, that's was under the "stimulants" section. I could have added more positives, but I dont want my instructors to get suspicious haha

I should mention, I'm still working on this, and so far it is 19 pages long, this was just one section. A friend of mine is on page 29

Oh, ok, maybe they worded it weirdly?

You should double-check before submitting though.

I certainly intend on editing and finishing up, but they filled in the drugs, I just did the questions. But yeah, you can kind of tell the questions are too broad to really be super relevant to psychedelics, we had alcohol, Benzodiazepines, barbitrates, dissociatives, opiates, two sections on stimulants, one for cocaine and the other for meth, and psyhcostimulants of course. Each section with the same set of questions and examples of those types of drugs. I imagine they had to throw this together really fast since the whole term was turned upsidedown with corona virus stuff going on.
