Ask the FEDS for them. They are stockpiling painkillers and antibiotics. Just goes to show the govt is looking after our best interests. When the pills and antibiotics run dry, the govt will be glad to hand them out, at 20x the price, though. remember, there is no inflation!

It's a typical law enforcement response to a problem. Slam a door shut, in a room with no windows and then walk away.

I have a great doctor. But, I wouldn't dare ask for a script for Roxicodone. Even though they work the best for pain. I have the option of getting Morphine products, but my experience with them is that I sleep, non stop on the stuff.

I can understand the addiction aspect of it. I can't take any rapid acting opiate correctly, have an addictive personality. But, I also won't doctor shop when I run out either. I've had frank discussions with my doctor about it, he's given me the option to take it incorrectly, run out and suffer because he knows I won't doctor shop behind his back. But, it's too miserable to live that way. So, I stay on what I can take correctly and occasionally do what it is I do. I'm not proud of it, but I'm honest.

I don't know what the solution to this problem is. But, those poor pain patients who have never done anything wrong in their lives, shouldn't even have to factor into the shortage.

I guess they must restrict the amount they send, in case the pharmacy get's robbed? Or, is it just that they are attempting to limit what MIGHT hit the street?

Um Earl ... If you would take a moment ti observe the name of this particular forum you might achieve a better understanding of why people posting here use names based on different pain medications and center their discussions around same. If the subject matter upsets you honey, might I suggest you visit a different forum? Perhaps one in which people discuss a subject that is not so upsetting to you. Maybe you could find a discussion centered around petty whining. I'm thinking you would fit in very well. And Earl? Might I suggest you familiarize yourself with the intended subject matter of a discussion forum prior to posting in the future? It will save you all that energy you just wasted by upsetting yourself over another persons s/n. You have yourself a good day now, ok?

We.. are.. all...broken...up ...inside. You must hate yourself if this is what you consider an opinion. You need to forgive yourself for that dark secret you hide in the closet. SEEK TREATMENT. otherwise, please take the courageous step in bashing complete strangers just to make yourself feel better, and realize, I know you are not bashing others, it is a reflection upon yourself and the way you feel inside. Hate comes from within.

You two are just so cute together!!!! Ahhh ... true love. Spring is on its way!

nobody has more fun berating these worthless pill junkies than me.
these people are the scum of the earth.
there needs to be a clandestine team to round them all up, pack them tightly into railroad box cars, haul them out onto some desolate set of tracks out in the desert southwest, and let them slowly rot away.

Indeed you have little man. indeed you have. WAY too long. Perhaps you could incorporate Earl into your act? How adorable would THAT be??

OMG this is way too easy. I'm off to greener pastures and maybe find something that offers more of a challenge.

Yes, we know you are broken dipshit. You are NOT a complete stranger. You damn junkies are all exactly alike. Try to score drugs under the guise of being legit. Bullshit, you're just another junkie.

You mean a challenge like walking a straight line? Go find another junkie to tell how bad your withdrawals are.

like i've said before, IF, and that's giving these pill addicts the benefit of the doubt for just a split second, there's anyone who legitimately needs these insidious drugs,(drugs that were originally created for terminal cancer patients)they damn sure wouldn't be begging for them on this shythole site.
these people are junkies, plain and simple.
So what brings you here to troll this shythole site?

When they start criticizing the posting alias, it means they are too stupid to come up with anything else. What a loser junkie you are. Low IQ to boot.

Sadness, sadness. I love living life. The country of hate, and demagoguery. How shamed is your life that you cannot have an intelligent conversation without labeling someone you never met or took time to learn about. People like yourself attack with words, But the Words are always teenage rage, in need of a finger to point to try without avail to make yourself feel better. God Bless You and I hope You Receive the Willpower to Stop the Self Loathing And Self Destruction. Peace

I think Earl ran out of his meds early and is just a bit touchy as a result. He isn't making a whole lot of sense. Or perhaps he and YTD have had their first little tiff. Don't worry earl honey, things will get better. I'm sure your new sweetie will close out his Christian Mingle account.

Wow...2 pair again!!! 5353!!!
