list of drugs - what does that mean?

An_242085 posted:
I'm new to drugs because I don't do them but my teenager has experimented with it. In my travels I came across a note that contained a list of drugs. Is this the breakdown of 1 drug, a recipe to create something extremely potent? Or is it just a list of potential drugs that kids try out?

Amoxicillin 875 mg - Doxepin 25 mg - Oxycodone/APAP 10-325 mg - Crestor 10 mg - Tramadol/APAP 37.5-325 mg - Naproxen Sodium 550 mg - Diazepam 5 mg - Iboprofen 600 mg - Hydrocod/APAP 10-325 mg - Cetirizine 10 mg

Any answers are appreciated. Thank you all.

James Golden, MD responded:
The list you found is neither the breakdown of one drug nor a recipe to create something potent. It does, however, include three opiates and a benzodiazepine; taking a combination such as this could be very dangerous.

I would recommend you let your child know you've seen this list and ask what the purpose of it is. Hopefully this will lead to an honest conversation that allows you to share your concern.
