Walgreens is one of the strictest pharmacies when it comes to filling prescriptions for opiates. They are being harassed by dea thugs for no reason at all and have created a shortage of medicine for legitimate patients. For some strange reason they seem to want people to suffer unnecessarily. dea thugs serve nio useful purpose at all!

With the DEA it's an all or nothing situation. Everyone that is prescribed an opioid medication is a drug addict.It's a situation that is all too painful for me. I have been on this medicine for many years due to many reasons,being ill with a terminal illness. I have jumped through all of Walgreen's hoops only to be refused after almost 5 years at this one Walgreen's but yet over a 20 year history with Walgreen's.

What the worst part is that if you try using walgreens you have to show proof of injury....which is unconstitutional to begin with. And if you try saying no...that's private!
You'll have NO chance of filling a legitimate prescription from a Dr.... Soon were gonna need to take a urine analysts before filling.

Even worse....yes it gets worse!

Most privately owned pharmacies fill prescriptions for extreme amounts while price gouging at a price of over $3-4 a pill.
Because they don't even ask for identification because there selling drugs just like the drug dealer there filing that script for to begin with... And the DEA does after Walgreens? Haha!

The Marketing of Madness is the definitive documentary on the psychiatric drugging industry. Here is the real story of the high income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit centre.

But appearances are deceiving. How valid are psychiatrists’ diagnoses – and how safe are their drugs? Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this three-part documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal dangerous and often deadly sales campaigns.

In this film you’ll discover that… Many of the drugs side effects may actually make your ‘mental illness’ worse. Psychiatric drugs can induce aggression or depression. Some psychotropic drugs prescribed to children are more addictive than cocaine. Psychiatric diagnoses appears to be based on dubious

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.
