This area is just a joke. It is a cesspool of prescription drug abuse, and the damn doctors are the cause of it all. You can talk all the crap you want about "pill heads" but let me see what would happen to you if YOUR doctor prescribed you oxycontins on a daily basis, only to increase your dose as time goes on due to the fact that the tolerance level to these drugs move up insanely fast. Then, the next thing you know, you become PHYSICALLY dependent on these drugs just to function. Well some say just don't take them. Ok. Well if you just "stop", you will have diarrhea so bad you will literally shit down your leg before you can make it to the bathroom, you throw up violently, you sweat and shake and have hot and cold chills, you ache like the flu times 100. Withdrawal is NOT a pretty site. And regardless of how the problem started, these people need help because it is a genuine medical problem. So before you judge someone else, you should take a while to walk a mile in their shoes. For the ones seeking help, congratulations, because you are going through one of the hardest battles you will ever face in your lifetime.

First, just cause a Doc prescribes you pills, does not mean you take them like candy. and Abuse them.

I have took pills for the last 14+ years due to illness and guess what i am no Dope head and pill popper ....or whining because I am hooked on pills....I am not hooked on anything...in fact 8 of the pills I no longer take because i weaned myself off of them, the Doctor said i would be on them the rest of my life...

he was wrong...and I take those I need for my related issues all the other ones I no longer do....and if I can anyone can.

Yes Doctors over prescribe, but you know , YOU are the one who swallow them....and YOU are the One who can STOP doing so....and abusing them is NOT a Doctors fault it's the individuals

they need to be taught to get a Life.....and stop getting high to start with.

Why not get mad at yourself and do something YOU can do to change it...and stop blaming everyone else...the INDIVIDUAL is the one who has the Power to say Yes or No...or to swallow or spit it out !!!!

stop whining about what you assume is everyone else...look in the mirror...that reflection is Y-O-U.

Too little control over pharmaceutical companies MAKING all of these meds to begin with, and too many Docs prescribing them for too many things.

Billions of pills being manufactured is the root cause of course...Everything is about the Benjamin's period.

I hope you wake up and realize that Pharm companies and bad doctors are still just symptoms of what the problem is.This problem will only get worse until we get over this contradiction of demanding to keep the medical field as a "for profit" industry. It is a conflict of the Hippocratic oath.

I would have thought you were describing yourself except no one in their right mind would touch you in order to pat you on the back.

First of all, this comment mentioned nothing about "taking pills like candy" and nobody is whining or talking about trying to get high. You seem to be coming across a little nasty and judgemental. You don't have to take your pills like candy as you called it. Simply taking them as prescribed is all it takes to become addicted to these opioid pain killers. Also, it IS the doctors fault for prescribing these pills left and right. Do they bother telling their patients that they will become physically addicted to these drugs and will more than likely never be able to stop taking them. Good for you for weaning yourself off but you are taking this whole comment out of text. You have no right to call people who take their meds as prescribed "dope heads" or anything else. The point is that this epidemic is usually caused by a doctor writing a prescription. Nobody would take these pills with the intentions of becoming an addict, that's just how horrible these pills are and that's unfortunately what they end up doing to people. I hope you feel better that you got to get on here and be a judgemental asshole and that you got to let everyone know how strong and wonderful you are because you were able to quit. Because sweetheart, you are one of many few who have been able to do that. You should be proud of yourself but you don't need to be rude and judgemental to those who are struggling to fight this addiction that they only have because of their doctor.
its all on you

How about a little personal responsibility?

Why not read the warning label on the bottle, or the information sheet that is handed to you when the prescription is filled.

You could even use Google to research whatever prescription you have been written.

Better yet why not ask the doctor that prescribes them, what side effects or adverse reactions can occur

Even better would be to seek out a doctor to correct whatever ailment it is that has you seeking pain medication, instead of a doctor that writes prescriptions like the government writes checks.

Remember nobody can take better care of you, than you.

Doctors lie...same as anyone else. If they tell the truth about what they're prescribing, they can't get you addicted and they're out money.

Why would you go to a doctor that you suspect would lie to you?

Hey Dirty YOUNG Man, who tries to act like an adult, or more accurately, thinks he is acting like one is here again......Great to hear from Topix's resident dumbass:)... Always a pleasure:)

Didn't you already "identify" me on another thread recently, and as usual, made an ass out of yourself once again, as USUAL?

You do realize you post more than I do don't you?..Nah, your too stupid to count:)

Most of you are tards. It is the doctors who are causing the pill problem. A person in chronic pain isn't gonna turn down a cure. And the doctors do not tell the whole truth. Not really lying but they hold back a lot of info.
