A security guard at work gave me this from his recent trip to the Dominican. I almost hate to ask, but what do you think? Keep in mind I'm going to smoke it either way. I don't mind if it's toenails are spider webs. Those smoke could too. But is it fake?
Aggression remains a major cause of morbidity in patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Current pharmacotherapy for aggression is not always effective and is often associated with morbidity. Nicotinic acetylcholinergic neurotransmission may play a prominent role in ASD pathophysiology based on human and animal studies, and preclinical studies show nicotine administration can reduce aggression-related behaviors. Transdermal nicotine has been used to treat agitation in neuropsychiatric conditions with cholinergic dysfunction. Here we report the use of transdermal nicotine as an adjunctive medication to treat aggression in a hospitalized adolescent with ASD. Nicotine patch was recurrently well tolerated, and reduced the need for emergency medication and restraint. These findings suggest further study of transdermal nicotine for aggression comorbid with ASD is warranted.
I am only offended by your use of capital G gurkha... Let's take a break from the BS and quickly look at something that really matters...was at the b&m today. Sat in a chair and the springs were AFU. got up and what do I see? Yes, this is really the chair...you can't make this stuff up...
