    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Help for a friend

    Ten days ago a friend of mine was administered a smoking cessation injection and was prescribed three capsuls three times a day. His reaction was severe. He slept for several days, did not eat, could not stop crying, could hardly walk and talk. The bottle of meds did not have any information on it, and my friend said that his doctor gave it to him in the office - not the pharmacist. We do not even know what the contents are. He stoped taking all meds one week ago but still only feels that he is functioning at 50%. What happened and what should he do? Help! Thank you.

    Hiya,

    I'm so sorry about your friend! Take him to the docs for sure. A different doctor. Get a second opinion. Next time consider the ER if his symptoms get this serious! Best of luck to him, let us know how he is doing!
