Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

May last for 48 hours --the effect of cocaine as it is getting released from the packet in the stomach.

You can drink plenty of fluids or even try a laxative to expel the pack.

However, given your symptoms a ER visit is better to rule out any heart attack from cocaine.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
