Missed Past Two Days of Treatment
Aug 7, 2005

Hi, Im a 26 yr old male on treatment twice since last sept.. I was at my friends birthday miles away and ended up takin alot of Alcohol which I ended up taking alot of Coke at a party!! I new i had take my drugs but i was so off my head i couldnt face takin them..the party lasted 2days now i am facing the consequences as i have been violently ill and cant keep anything down what will i do plese help.. Many thanks Roars N.Ireland.

Response from Dr. Young

Roars- Yours is an example of the affect of overdoing it at parties and the impact on even well-intended adherence.

If you're still violently ill, I wouldn't yet resume treatment. Wait until you're done puking, reconsider your party friends and then resume your medications.

I'd be sure to mention this episode to your doctor, perhaps to provide strategies to assist with your adherence.

Good luck, BY
