(KRMG Tulsa)   The good news is that the next generation of painkiller is more powerful than morphine and is non-addictive. The bad news is that it may have the side effect of "heebie jeebies", to use a medical term   (krmg.com ) divider line

I felt something pop in my back when I yawned this morning. Gimme this stuff now!

I take Nucynta, which is a double-acting opioid without acetaminophen. I love it. Works great! If you live in chronic pain, ask your doc. It is also possible to get a reduction on the copay through J&J.

That being said, I want this new one for the bad flare days. Oh man, do I want it!

Studies done with the mice show that the venom has no side effects and it's not believed humans could become addicted to it.

We're humans, for farks sake. We can get addicted to watching flashing lights.

That is one creepy centipede.

If I ever see a centipede like that, I'm moving. Immediately. And setting fire to the house on my way out the door.

So... if the venom is such a great pain killer...  why all the pain when you get involved in an argument with one of these sods?

Go home, science. You're drunk.

"We set some mice of fire. Others were sprayed with acid. Then we injected them with centipede venom. Imagine out disappointment when they stopped screaming their little mousey screams. Then Roy said, 'Hey, we can make money with this shiat!'"


Science!

Find new non-addictive pain killers. Sell new drug. People get addicted. Rinse. Repeat.

I recently saw a commercial for some kind of laser surgery for that.

You gotta admit, us Hebes are pretty jeebie.

Heroin was also marketed at first as a non-addictive alternative to morphine.

/humans get addicted to lots of things

Both true, but not because of a particular dug or distraction- addiction is a symptom of another underlying issue, either physical or psychological. If this drug works the way they want it to work, all it would do would be block your brain's ability to receive pain signals- thereby making it a painkiller you couldn't get high on. Lidocaine abuse isn't really a thing, since all it does is make you numb- but I'm sure that someone, somewhere is "addicted to it" and the same thing could happen with this.

Personally, I am addicted to breathing, eating and the occasional handy-J.

Centipede venom as medicine? What won't Interzone come up with next?

I dont think anyone can replace Judas Priest, subby.
