OxyContin's removal could cause whole new set of problems

Feb 29, 2012 Full story: Vancouver Sun 14

The pending removal from the market of one of the most abused prescription drugs in Canada could make the tragedy of under-treated pain worse and lead to other unintended consequences for which we aren't prepared.

In my opinipn with the removal of OxyCotin's people will start making them and distributing them on thier own, or they will turn to other drugs that have similair effects. As the end of the paragraph above says we may not be prepared for the consequences that may follow the banning OxyCotin's from Canada ....

Ever seen a person having severe withdrawel symptoms. Lets say you're one of those people who are taking quite a lot of Oxycontin or other potent drug to treat chronic pain and then they just say "Sorry buddy, we're taking this off the market. Add to that all the people who are just taking it for recrealtional use or who couldn't get off it after their injury got better because the people who gave it to them couldn't be bothered to help them get off it afterward. Wait until all of the Managers, Lawyers, Executives, Doctors, Tradesmen etc etc can't get it anymore and can't take it anymore becuase they're still not going to offer a help program to help people after they implement this knee-jerk, not well thought out move and people start showing up with guns at your friendly neighbourhood drug store or bank so thay can buy elicit drugs like heroin which will always be around and is where the money is going to go when they cant get thier legal painkillers. And you think there's problems now? B-B-B-Ba-Baby you just aint seen nothing yet.

What will happen and this will happen very soon. People that were addicted to oxy will start robbing, killing and straight up doing whatever they can to get their fix. This isn't just recreational users the laws are effecting legitimate people that are in pain. You take this away and people are going to lose everything. People dependent on this medication to function have different withdrawel side effects. Some become very violent and will stop at nothing to feel better. Others give up. Suicide will be way up too. Take ecstacy pills for example. Real shady chemists that put ex on the street will create a new form packed full with heroin. Don't for one second think that they won't. This whole oxy epidemic just became a million times worse.

People will just start using the new formula, or they'll get clean. There's a chance that heroin use might increase, but I think it will be negligible.

Some of you guys are over reacting.

@ pain you cannot handle

aggreed totally they cant just take oxy of the market without huge problems in society that are from undermedicated pain patients on their own net alone including those who buy them to abuse them. The illegal heroin use will shoot up loads no pun intended there so will robbery also what will they do about peopole who are dying to take their oxycontin from them if no other opiate or opioid works is a total breach of human rights. i feel animals have more rights than people for pain releif in the western world !!!

Its all the fault of previous and current usa governments drug wars and policys whatever they do it seems other countries follow like pathetic little lapdogs constantly licking obamas plums. I like americans but i cant stand there evil government and its stupid laws !

@banana nose maldonado

I strongley dissagree with that the people are overreacting ! The people it does not detter from injecting them or snorting them will just end up with bad health problems quickly or dead ! How is that the right thing to do wheather its stopping oxycontin or introduceing a new so called abuse proof formula if its bad for the people its bad for society ! AND WRONG AND EVIL as far as im concerned its the same thing as dealers cutting heroin or worse the gov shud go to the hague for messsing peoples bodys up. if people need/want drugs like that they should be available to them in a clean regulated form

You are absolutely CLUELESS!!! I know and have seen for a FACT, that they ARE being manufactured in Canada, and have been for yrs now!!! Ever heard of chemists? Organised criminals have been distibuting these here in B.C. and all over Canada for yrs now!!! They also,get the bulk medicines shipped in from countries like India and others,so they not only make them here,they also have them shipped here! Just like heroin and cocaine...it is BIG business and there is HUGE demand for the oxycontin! Whoever thinks that ppl get scripts and sell them to supply the whole country has to be crazy! There is only a certain amount ppl can get per mth...they cannot dr. shop as in the USA...it is NOT easy to get scripts here! Wakeup! I've seen them and watched others take them...not going into details...this is the TRUTH! So, the only ppl who will suffer from this is, real chronic pain patients...NOT addicts!!! That is SAD!!!

HALE MANGALAMANI NICO - or "Mang" for short is a stand up guy. He is solid. If you place a order, your package WILL ARRIVE! If it doesn't, Topix will give you your money pack - GUARANTEED! How can you go wrong with prices like that? Heroin retails for $250-300 per gram here in town, his dope is PHARMACEUTICAL grade!

Place a order and tell him ANTONITUS sent you, he'll give you a gram for free!
