    Have you tried asking your DOCTOR??

    After you seek medical advice, start going to N.A.

    Jh--oh, I get it.You're thinkin' he messed up his nose septum by snorting coke ?

    I think he has a definite drug problem. Snorting is a definite abuse signal. Be it prescribed or street.....

    Go to rehab Baby... first step Medi center.  Second step follow the advice.  Good Luck.

    seek help from medical dr.or go to ER.

    E.R.will undoubtedly be pissed that you`ve come to them if it`s not an emergency!!:-(...Your GP is the one to refer you for help/rehab..or call one of the many drugslines...I don`t know where you live but in the uk we have drug support call centres for advice..Such as FRANK...Or Drugsline..etc...google the nearest in your area...and I wish you luck..you can do it!!:-)

    small area,not always to have such conviences.I don`t care if er doc pissed. a judgement call, in medicine.

    Millie, around here, the E R doesn't care if you come in for a non-emergency. They're used to it. All the low income people who don't have health insurance do it.

    thanks.

    Pain meds can be hard to withdraw from!  You need to go to a rehab or Dr. to get professional help getting off of them.  Some things, like your headaches can probably be helped during detox.  Your nose is going to take some time to heal.

    You mean you are addicted to drugs and want to stop using, but the withdrawal symptoms are too difficult for you to handle without help. 
    Now, that being said, you've heard it from, let's see now, six people, including me.  
    GO TO A DOCTOR.
    GO TO A REHAB.
    GO TO N.A. (narcotics anonymous)
    You'll be lucky if the cartilage between your nostrils hasn't dissolved.

    very true answer Bob.

    put an ice pack on your nose and / or forehead.

    mycatsmom

    but,your nose is prob so far gone from snorting meds or coke.

    What would possess you to snort instead of swallowing? You didn't think this might ruin your nose? I never heard of any pain medication that is snorted.

    No..nor me..(Only Coke)..i THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME not getting it!!:-¬thanks Ed

    Wanted to Powder his nose!!!

    You got 2 choices, 1) Follow the advice of those above and LIVE or 2) Keep doin your thing and DIE!!  Just follow your NOSE to FREEDOM!

    SMOKE THEM, PUT THEM UP YOUR ASS, FEED THEM TO A CAT AND EAT THE CAT.

    That`s REALLY HELPFUL!!!(NOT)!!!...SICK..refer to psychs!!YOU! Sorry but big TD from ME!!!:-(
    mycatsmom
