Being tired at the wheel is an under rated cause of vehicular accidents. Studies conducted by sleep research teams shows that a person who has stayed awake an entire day performs the same behind the wheel as a drunk driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .1g. This makes them many more times likely to be involved in an accident then an alert person. In the United States the NTSB, the National Transportation Safety Board has done several studies showing the correlation between sleepiness and accidents especially where heavy trucks are involved. Of long haul truck drivers involved in road accidents, just about 50% are related to fatigue. Other studies have shown that 17% of all accidents each year (around a million) are related to fatigue and 50% of accidents on busy roads were caused by drowsy drivers.
I am an alcoholic, I drink everyday, at most I drink an entire fifth. I’ve been on Xanax for ten years, up to 3mg per day. Recently my father passed away and I went to the ER for uncontrollable panic attacks. I am not prescribed up to 3 mg of Ativan a day. I’ve read all the posts on this site, and I know everyone says don’t drink while on Ativan… But I can’t just not drink.. I can’t just stop drinking because I’m an addict. Is there a ‘safe’ amount I can drink without putting myself in harm? Also going to testament for alcoholism.. Thinking about starting up anabuse again to quit drinking. But for now, I just want people to know I need both of these to survive at this moment.. I’m not in it to see how messed up I can get, must wondering if there is a safe amount I can drink while on this med….
Androgenic anabolic steroids may adversely affect serum lipids, including lowering HDL and elevating LDL levels. These changes can be marked, particularly with the 17-alpha-alkyl derivatives (., fluoxymesterone, methyltestosterone, oxandrolone, oxymetholone, and stanozolol), and may significantly impact the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Patients with preexisting hyperlipoproteinemia may require closer monitoring during therapy with androgenic agents, and adjustments made accordingly in their lipid-lowering regimen. Androgen therapy should be administered cautiously in patients with coronary artery disease or a history of ischemic heart disease.
