beefoe: bborchar: somedude210: This is the one that should've never gotten through the FDA and is very very very easy to overdose on, right?

I have no problem with Patrick doing this, if that's the case. New England is facing a massive opiate problem

My problem is where does governor have the power to do such a thing?  And if he's allowed to do it, what's stopping other conservative governors from banning drugs like birth control?

He overstepped his bounds and needs to leave this up to the correct authorities.

Don't be silly. Democrats only do good things and evil Repukelicans only do bad things.


Help help I'm having the oppression of this!

scut207: OscarTamerz: The reason there is an epidemic of addiction to pharmaceuticals in this country is because the left wing pushed for reeducation of physicians to make sure they were available to the patients more easily. Of course all that was needed was a prescription but the left wingers went so far as to require Continuing Medical Education courses about why you should give your patients pain relievers. In California the requirement was for 12 hours of CME time and many states followed suit. Now in the OC more people die of pharmaceutical overdose than die in motor vehicle accidents. The left wing never anticipates the consequences of their actions like why it's a bad idea to pay teenagers to have babies.

I'm pregnant


Ha Fark just changed "0 / 10" to "I'm pregnant"... wife would be thrilled IVF is expensive.

YOU don't be silly.  All democrats do wrong is get caught committing voter fraud over and over.  Besides that they are totally honest and immune to corruption and also are very smart and attractive.

Target Builder: Galer said Zohydro is safer than competitor Vicodin because it doesn't include acetaminophen, which can cause liver damage.

Thats the point of putting the acetaminophen in there - so you can't take enough of the drug to get really high without killing yourself.


Exactly: acetaminophen is safer because it's poison.

It's really obvious to me that most of you have never worked in health care. Here's a few insider tips:

1. It actually IS the physician's responsibility to make sure the patient is not going to abuse the drug. It's also the pharmacist's responsibility.

2. There is no need for this drug. There are many better pain medications already available (that are less easy to snort or inject) and this drug will not - I repeat, WILL NOT - bring pain relief to patients who have failed Oxycontin, MS Contin, Opana, and transdermal fentanyl. Those (very few) patients will be on intrathecal therapy.

3. This drug was approved despite the panel voting against it. That's shady and I foresee a good chance that this drug is recalled by the FDA. It does not meet an unmet need, which is required for new drugs on the market.

4. This drug will not prevent Tylenol overdoses. For one thing, it's long acting; patients will still have breakthrough pain meds (possibly with acetaminophen) available. For another, it's for chronic pain ONLY. Patients who are taking 12+ Norcos a day and are therefore at risk of liver toxicity have bigger problems. They need to tell their doctor what they're taking (and stop pestering me for early refills; the answer is no, bub) and have a new stronger drug prescribed. Norco is not meant to be taken at the max dose for long periods of time. To have liver damage, one would have to either take a LOT more than prescribed (at least double the max daily dose, and probably triple) or take more than the max dose every day for a long period of time. There is NO reason for either of those things to EVER happen. None. If your pain is bad enough that you need to take 5 Norcos every 4 hours, then you need to go to the ER, because no way in hell was it that bad in the doctor's office or you would have been admitted to the floor. If you're taking more for months and months, then you need to get on a different drug. And trust me, we'll know you're taking more because you'll be lying to us about why you always run out 10 days early on your script.


This drug is bad news. Not sure that MA should ban it because of what others have stated about other states banning birth control, etc, but it needs to go away and go away fast.

States rights. It is how the US was supposed to operate.

I propose we ban Naloxone and see how much of the problem sorts itself out.

Arkanaut: I believe the science shows opiates are more addictive and far more potentially deadly than pot.

1) Make all illegal drugs legal.
2) Do a crime on said drugs, we harvest your organs untainted by said drugs, and turn the carcass into Soylent Drugs.
3) Nobody supports my initiatives!

Yes, because banning other drugs has worked thus far.
