i found about fifteen of these lil pills in my daughters bible... she cut out a spot in her bible to hide these... everywhere i go, i cannot find anything about them... im a bigger name in the community therefore i didnt call the pharmacy. they are pink... not dull pink... and they are small... like nitro glycerin pills and they are scored once and have "diskets" imprinted on them. everywhere i go i get the same picture for a 5mg methadune or something like that. PLEASE help!!! i need to save my daughter in the name of Christ
I cant find this particular pill like you have described but if it is truly methadone then this is a serious drug. Methadone is a very strong opioid pain medicine. A lot of folks know it from its popularity as a drug for getting off heroin but this drug is a strong pain killer in its own right. It is a very difficult drug to withdraw from once the body is used to it. Some kids have heard these work to wean them off other pain killers like OxyContin, morphine, hydrocodone and other opioids and they do but it is something best done by a Dr not a kid buying them off the street! These drugs are particularly dangerous to opiate abusers because they can repress respirations long after the effects (or high) of the drug has worn off so often times an abuser will pop another to get that euphoric feeling back and will build up enough drug to where they just stop breathing. You need to let your daughter know you found her stash and have a serious talk with her about what she is doing. If she keeps going like this, you will find her dead one morning-I hate to be harsh but this is a fact!! Perhaps she will admit to you she has a problem. If it were one of my kids I would tell them that I love them and I'm scared for them that they are going to die and let them know how much it would crush me if they died but it is your child and you deal with it as you see fit-just be careful not to shut her down to where she wont talk at all. She may try to belittle it as nothing but that is not the case. Methadone is serious business! It can be a very good drug but it can also be a killer just like most opioids. Best that you read up on the subject before you talk to her. You are probably not the only parent in your church family who has dealt with this. As a "bigger name" in the community, you have an opportunity to come out to others in the community and help all the kids-I am sure your daughter is not the only one. Shut down the suppliers if you can-that is the first step of keeping this stuff out of reach of the kids. Somebody out there is giving or selling this kind of crap or it could be a few kids stealing from their parents/grandparents cabinets. As a community leader you can educate parents/grandparents what to watch for and to keep their meds locked up and out of the reach of children. You would think that after the age of 10 or so you wouldnt have to watch meds so closely, that older kids would know better, but they get to a certain age where they experiment and you have to keep those meds out of their reach again! Dont try to sweep this under the rug. Get your child some help and use this opportunity given to you to help and educate others too! Just remember that it is not the fault of the drug. Blaming the drug is like blaming a pencil for misspelled words. Take this opportunity to help your daughter and the other sons and daughters in the community. Educate the parents to keep these meds under lock and key and to keep an eye out to be sure they are not being pilfered by their kids. This is truly the only way to stop this. Vigilance and education! Good Luck to you!
ChristPuncher46545, if you're SO big in your community that you fear taking these pills to a pharmacist (who is, by the way bound by the same ethics as a doctor), then for Heaven's sake, take them to a pharmacy 40 miles away!
God forbid that the next time you go to church, it's for your daughter's WAKE! Speaking of wake, you need to WAKE UP and smell the coffee! If you must, take that drive! If these pills are methadone, you may be saving your daughter's life!!!
