Want to play a game?

" M&M drug bust"

Ok, here's the deal. Finals are FAST approaching and I'm almost through two semesters of pharmacology which basically means that I don't know everything about drugs but I better know something! So the game? If you don't care to post drugs that either you are on or your parents or whoever really are on, I'll need the generic name and the brand if you have it, then I will guess what they are used for and how they work. I promise to not look them up unless I have to and I'll tell you/ confess to you that I had to if I do. This will benefit me and my studying and well...I'll give anyone who stumps me 5 virtual M&M's! I mean if that isn't a motivator i don't know what is. So let the games begin!

P. S. I'll post the drugs and their results if enough people participate. :)
Disclaimer: No illegal drugs please, not the idea here;)

Hi Table! What about natural, over-the-counter stuff? I was going to email you this week and ask you about Alpha Lipoic Acid... it was recommended to me for morning sickness, but that is not what it is primarily used for.

Hey Kelly,
I'm still looking at your question but from what I found I haven't seen anything saying its safe to use that for morning sickness. Everything I have seen says that it is an antioxidant beneficial in diabetes, HIV, and glaucoma. Seeing that you are pregnant and all I wouldn't really recommend taking meds that aren't recommended for that purpose and haven't been tested at some point. Have you tried Ginger? It is natural and been tested in nausea and vomiting in pregnancy with some pretty good results. Maybe ask your pharmacists more about that and see what she says.

Well good luck and don't spend too much time on these

I was thinking the same thing as you. I did a little research and found that it is used to lower blood sugar levels (which I am hypoglycemic- and need no help with lowering blood sugar) LOL

Thanks for the insight!

(hint: Gary was mostly pulling these off of chemicals in his warehouse. If you can't find one that's probably why. I think one or two of them are real though.)

Yea, I don't know any of those by heart gary so I'm gonna have to wait till after finals on those. But I will look them up.
