poplar bluff has more people on Hydrocodone. I had to go to a pharmacy yesterday in PB. I don't want to mention the name of the pharmacy because it is not their fault. I had to stand in line with a couple dirty people who where comparing their mg of pain killer with each other. This very large girl large was standing there telling the pharmacist that her purse had been stollen with all here prescriptions in it and she had to get all new scripts. Why in the hell would you have a purse full of prescription pain killer and tranquilizers in out in public. What like you can't wait until you get home to pop a pill? Plus not to mention the fact if you have an accident it is your automatically your fault if you are on pain killers. When the pharmacist pointed this out to the girl. she said I don't take them if I'm going to drive or go out of the house. The pharmacist then asked then why did you have them in your purse.
We have too many doctors in Poplar Bluff that will write out script for pain killers. They are not helping you or your problems.
I know you say you have to have them because you are in pain but is it really pain or just the pain you are feeling from the withdraws of not having the drug in your system? When did it become normal to stay home pop pills and not bath? I ashamed to have to be around people like that.

A lot of the ones saying they where stolen was sold or used and they just wanted more.They do have to have to have a police report before the drug store can fill them.I believe the doctor has to write new scripts also.

they are probably just robbing each other and making out police report so they can get more perception for their habits

I broke my foot a few years ago and I had a lot of pain. My doctor gave me hydrocodone-I couldn't think straight. The next night my foot was throbbing, I took half of one, still felt terrible. I used Aleve and got relief from the pain. People have pain that restricts their lives, but I have no idea how they can pop many of these hydros and think straight!

I've never been addicted to drugs, but I can understand that if someone has a lot of pain, they might be. I got a tooth pulled, it was hard to remove so I was given a form of hydrocodone. It made me feel funny so I only took one. A few weeks later, my hip went out (???) and I took tylenol because I didn't want to take the hydrocodone. It helped but didn't completely do it.

A lot of people don't know that a lot of meds cause different levels of weight gain. I claim certain scriptures to help me with my pain. Some people do other things, but we all need to get off the meds as much as possible. I didn't know what was causing my weight gain until I was put on Naproxin and gained seven pounds in one week. My doctor began to experiment and told me to just take tylenol, but even that has side effects and is dangerous. Prayer does work wonders sometimes. Doesn't hurt. Try it. I like the 23rd Psalm.

I have also seen the same and agree on most of what has been said here. But, I do have severe osteoarthritis, work a full time job making very good money AND I take pain meds stronger than hydros. It is nothing to brag about for sure and I have researched every alternative and nothing works. So, I will continue the pain management regimen my doctor prescribes to help alleviate my pain levels and when/if someone remarks about my prescriptions, I will ask if they accomplish in life what I have and are they in constant pain in doing so. Trust me, if I knew of an alternative, I'd use it. And btw, when taken properly and long term, these pain pills DO NOT get the person high. I simply could not do my job if I was high at all. The doses I take would knock out most people but over the years taking graduated levels, there is no high to it. There is simply a bit of relief. I know this is a book but I want others to understand that not everyone takes pain pills for a buzz or sells them. Some of us have a valid need.

Nobody's knocking a person that truly needs them. Its the ones that don't. I have seen a couple of people get theirs pay with medicaid and go out the drug store and sell them.Don't know how much they got but the was given a lot more then they were paid.

we are on the same page. I'd never sell mine. They make my day manageable and to where I can function. I agree that doctors do prescribe them when unneeded too. And people do sell them and shouldn't. I have a son that's a druggie and would love to choke the life out of the people that sell him their pills !

I agree prescription meds are handed like candy and this is why 2/3 of puxico is addicted. My mom took fentynol and percocet, whoch both are truly highly addictive and stronv opiates, I finally took her off and trickrd her through yhe withdrawels and she to this day is pain free. But dpcs love that money.

I am sure someone somewhere besides the pharmaceutical companies realizes how chronic use ( & overuse in many cases) greatly shortens humans lives.
Pain killers are not good for your internal organ, look it up.
Chronic overuse allows the brain to send out false pain signals to confuse the patient between the original pain & the pain of withdrawal from meds.
Think about this, do you know many old people taking prescription pain meds for 40+ years?

There are some people who would rather be sick than to work. They want to stay in bed, laz around and take drugs. Yes, they do become dependent and think they are in pain when they aren't. Medicaid hasn't helped in these cases. It makes it easy for them to do this. I'm not being mean, I've seen some who are like this. Take their free status away and many of them would get up and go to work. There are some good liars out there. They sometimes believe their own lies.

The doctor in poplar bluff need to be help accountable for helping people not getting them addicted to drugs. By the way for those of you hooked on pain killers. they make you FAT because your liver is not processing the fat in your daily calorie intake right. It stores the fat in your belly right above your liver and then when that is big it starts storing it in your butt and back and arms. The pain pills make you sleepy so you don't workout and it gets worse and worse until you see the big blobs walking down the street or worse in walgreens waiting on their prescription to get filled

You don't know what you're talking about! You are stating this for people "hooked on" pain pills, but actually the opposite is true for someone truly addicted to pain pills. The addict takes more pills than prescribed, which in turn gets them high and gives them an energy boost and kills the appetite so they actually lose weight when addicted to pain pills. The side effects of sleepiness and weight gain tend to only happen to the people who use them sparingly for short periods of time.

All pain meds cause constipation, which keeps you from eating also.
