Abstract

A patient presenting with dependence an opium poppy tea infusion is reported. Poppy tea drinking, although previously described in certain parts of the UK, rarely presents in the farm of a dependence syndrome. Issues relating to the management of poppy tea dependence are discussed, including the results of existing labaratory urinalysis for drugs of abuse, the calculation of opiate dose equivalence, and the likelihood of transition (or not) from use of poppy tea to use of other opiates.
