Tom_Slick: I guess I must be one of the fortunate few when it comes to pain meds, yes they work on me but the side effects make me want to not take them unless the pain is so unbearable I can't breath./Plus they knock me out like a light one Oxycodone and I am out for 9 hours.
Kibbler: Step 1. Manufacture several times more prescription narcotics than you know are needed for legitimate medical use.Step 2. PROFIT. Give doctors free vaca- er, medical conferences and load their offices with free advert - er, office supplies with your brand on it
Russ1642: Jokes on them. I only abuse OTC drugs.
MythDragon: Enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate each American adult every four hours for one month.Stupid bullet point.What do they consider medicated? Half a tramadol could techincally 'medicate' someone. And for one month? So 1 out of 12 will get enough medication for a year. And considering that 1 out of 12 people injured/having problems that cause enough pain to warrent the use of pain killers sometime in a year, it makes sense. If someone had wisdom teeth taken out, why not ease the pain? If you rupture a disk, or break a bone, should you just sit there and suffer? DEA has gotten to the point to where some doctors refuse to give *any* pain medication for fear of investigation./I go through 180 5mg vicodin a month for back/shoulder pain//tolerance is a motherfarker.
A Terrible Human: I'm pretty sure my tooth is abscessed so I'm getting a kick out of this thread..../Pharmacy wants $18 for 20 tramadol.//fark that.
mediablitz: My friend who has been on Oxy for years will look you right in the eye and tell you people using medicinal marijuana for pain are just making excuses to get high.He'll be high as a kite on oxy while telling you this.
tricycleracer: Just say no to opioids. The constipation isn't worth it.
TrainingWheelsNeeded: dump the pillgrow a plant
Bill_Wick's_Friend: Me too. They killed the pain but they made me feel just awful and disconnected and zombied.
argylez: sooo much this! I am willing to bet that if we legalize weed, people using pills will drop big time. Plus, those opids make you feel like crap./smoke em if ya got em
Fuggin Bizzy: I don't even take Benadryl for seasonal allergies anymore because I hate that drugged feeling when I wake up./I didn't mind waking up hung over for years on end, though. Don't ask me why.//Recovering...
gja: I never abuse my prescription drugs./i am as nice as can be to them as I take them
Der Poopflinger: It'd drop but probably not big time, I've got injuries that grass doesn't help. That being said though I don't take anything for those injuries until they become unbearable though
argylez: I meant for recreational use. Weed does help with some pain, but not all. Sorry about your injuries.
Jubeebee: tricycleracer: Just say no to opioids. The constipation isn't worth it.I've gotten a Vicoden scrip twice (wisdom teeth, bassackwards back pain diagnosis), and took maybe 10 pills total. Both times they made me nauseous and fall of the world dizzy. Yeah, they helped with the pain, but after a day or two the side effects were worse.
Der Poopflinger: if I knew you and you live in the same town I'd give you the ones i have./A pill junky would have a field day if they got their hands on my medicine cabinet
NeuralSpike: tricycleracer: Just say no to opioids. The constipation isn't worth it.No shiat, that's the truth!
