Very true. Sadly alot of people do abuse these pills, but there are so many of us that actually have pain and cant get what we nneed prescribed. I think its BS right now that a person cant get the meds they need. I have RA, and AS and I went to many docs before I found one that gave me anything. They stupidly think motrin is going to work for all people....!!

My house has been robbed before.To make matters worse it was from a so called friend.So I bought a safe And tel NO ONE what I take for pain. It is a sad sad world out there. CAN'T TRUST NO ONE

If pain clinics were allowd to treat pain as deemed nessary then alot of these robbiers would stop. Trouble is in todays drug hysteria, anti pill, anti opiate society, people are seeking relief that is getting harder to find each growing month as more and more clinics and doctors either are quitting the practice or are being shut down for little to no reason, like this one i heard recently we shut down the clinic because he was over evaluating the mri's, or this one he was prescribing 120 oxycontin 40mg for severe bursidus and neuropathy. All of the sudden the drug control agencies know what needs to be prescribed in amerika and in what quanities, good by land of the free, hello police state.
I completely agree! It has become a Police State! I am so sick of these people, trying to fill their pockets with illegal drug money by fighting Doctors and ligit law abiding citizens who have serious painful ungodly pain suffering, due to the need to run " those of us who have this serious pain" into the jaws of the drug dealer, in an attempt to feel relief. Most of us who are legit are now suffering. Or attempting to " what the other doc's an police like to say it is "Self medicating". Isn't that what gernerally happens when all legal means have been " BANNED?" HELLO PEOPLE!!! we need to stand up for our RIGHTS!!!! I refuse to suffer..........what about you?
