Can you phone NHS 24?

Did he eat his tea? If so it is probably not drug related.

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 20:55:28

Is he saying anything at all? I would call NHS Direct.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 20:55:56

It's not kind of thing. He's been outr and to be fair, could be very tired. Is tiny pupils a sign of drug misuse? That's what I need to know. Checking on NHS lines on line now to be fair, can you imagine me waking him up and telling him we need NHS direct?

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 20:56:26

Can you wake him up see how responsive he is?

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 20:56:32

Yes tea eaten. Typical teen thing but pupils are worrying me.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 20:57:27

Uh, wake him up??? Taking my life in my hands? He's well grumpy and seriously mouthy.

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 20:57:27

Drug abuse can lead to tiny pupils and agressiveness but im sure it's not the only thing that can.

MascaraOHara Sun 12-Aug-07 20:57:56

he just sounds tired?!?

not sure what the issue is? I wouldn't worry about his pupils being small.. hpw old is he?

Carmenere Sun 12-Aug-07 20:58:19

If he had taken drugs that make his pupils go small he would most likely not have eaten.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 20:58:27

What drugs in particular? Dope or coke,important to me to know now which is which..

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 20:58:37

I wouldn't think he is in any danger even if it were drungs i would just keep a close eye on him and then you can call for help is his breathing gets bad or something.

Carmenere Sun 12-Aug-07 20:58:49

Yes wake him.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 20:59:19

Long story told elsewher on MN, just checking tonight because I haven't checked his eyes before.

Carmenere Sun 12-Aug-07 21:00:05

Amphetamines and coke and heroin can make your pupils go small not dope. However it may not be any of them.

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 21:00:35


Most chemicals can dilate the pupils.

Jollymum, you know him best. If your instincts are telling you all is not right, you maybe should trust them. NHS direct will be able to give you advice on whether you should be concerned or not.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 21:01:15

Have you tried waking a tired 17 yr old,, Light blue touch paper and retire!!

Carmenere Sun 12-Aug-07 21:03:09

I'm sorry if you are scared of waking him that is ridiculous. I have a 18 yr old dss and he would NEVER shout and be agressive with me if I woke him. This is not normal.

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 21:03:15

look here it's called FRANK its great for parents concerned about drugs.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 21:05:00

FFS DH is now arguing about drugs/alcohol and saying that DS was OK earlier. Says the biggest pisshead I know

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 21:07:05

Is your other thread in Teenages under a different name? if so i just read it. I wouls try calling a helpline they deal with parents everyday who are not sure if there children are using drugs or not. My DFB is a heavy drug user and my mums a drug and alcahol councelor so if you need anyone to talk to i can try my best.

CharleeWeasley Sun 12-Aug-07 21:10:48

bollox kids crying so have to be off now if you want a chat email me.

jollymum Sun 12-Aug-07 21:11:34

yes it is, while ago but things kind of run along until the next episode. Have just woekn him up and expressed concern, talking about maybe getting a doctor 'cos he's clammy and ratty.
