Drugs Past Tense
posted by November 2 at 10:45 AMon
Having “the talk” about drugs with your teenager can be pretty darn stressful—particularly for parents who used to do drugs themselves. So take a Xanax a half an hour or so before the talk. But check with your doctor first to make sure that Xanax doesn’t have any negative interactions with the Zoloft you’re taking for your depression. And wait until after lunch, so that you’re head is clear of the lingering aftereffects of the Ambien you took to get to sleep last night. And if you still have an erection—one that’s lasted four hours or more—from the Viagra you took this morning before the kids got up, postpone the talk for now and go to an emergency room right away. You can have that talk with your kids about how you used to drugs some other time.
But make sure your kids take their Ritalin before you leave for the ER.
