    the other day swim was smoking a pill on foil, and he blacked out, fell on the ground, and hit his head on the kitchen cabinet. well, he thought he'd just stop smoking pills. but today the same thing happened while smoking pot. and he's not gonna quit that. so the question is, could it be lack of oxygen from taking too big of a hit? or could it be some other type of breathing/heart problem. swim doesn't want to go the doctor again. has this happened to anyone else?

    Nobody *wants* to go to the doctor. But if SWIY really wants to know what's up, SWIY will get to the doctor and be very honest regarding what's going on. The rainbow trout does not recommend playing around with one's health. Nobody on this forum will be able to tell you for sure what's going on, only speculate.

    If SWIY will not see a doctor, then SWIY should be mindful of the conditions when smoking. Keep track of things like whether black outs tend to happen if SWIY is smoking on an empty stomach, if SWIY's had a little or a lot of sugar, if SWIY's been sleeping properly, etc. Discovering trends could help to diagnose when SWIY does go to a doctor, or avoid the situation in the future if SWIY won't see a doctor.

    Regardless, until this settles out, SWIY should make sure the smoking's taking place in safe surroundings where SWIY is less likely to be injured if a blackout occurs. On a couch or something, perhaps. There should also be somebody with SWIY, to "put out any fires", literal or otherwise.

    The same thing happened to SWIM while smoking OxyContin off of foil. SWIM nodded out with the smoke in his lungs and was fortunate enough to have a friend that woke SWIM up. Now, at that moment SWIM had taken Cyclobenzaprine, Klonopin, & was smoking weed. Plus SWIM already chewed up an 80 mg OC before that. In fact, numerous times SWIM has nodded out due to opiates & benzos combined. Now, was SWIY ONLY smoking weed when SWIY passed out the second time? This could merely be respiratory depression due to over-sedation.

    Yes. SWIM isn't sure what the exact cause was for this but it has happened to him. He fell out smoking a blunt with his friends once and freaked them out but never went to the hospital. It happened again a couple months later this time while smoking a cigarette on lunch break at class. This time SWIM went to the hospital for a couple days for monitoring. The only explination that they could explain was that in the ambulance SWIMs heart beat was irregular. SWIM was then released and hasn't had an episode in over 2 years.

    Take into consideration that during this time SWIM wasn't sleeping very often due to an overloaded schedule, so sheer exhaustion probably factored in as well.

    Clover has seen someone pass out while smoking weed. He was standing up and just dropped like a brick. Freaked Clover the hell out. Clover reached down to check for a pulse, his hands were cold, and when he touched his friends neck his friend jumped and woke up. No other drugs were in use at the time and this was a pretty drug naive individual except for marijuana.
