Whoever wrote that article does NOT know wtf they are even ryng to talk about. For one, oxycontin is NOT an over the counter drug. It is a schedule II controlled substance requiring a doctor's prescription tto obtain. Second, codeine is NOT a very strong opiate, it is actually kind of weak compared to other things on the market. Third, the active drug in oxycontin is NOT codeine. It is an extended release of oxycodone. Oxycodone is NOT codeine. It is however a strong narcotic that is way stronger than codeine. Whoever posted this should at lest get the facts strait. Misinformation can get soone hurt of killed. Think before you try to sound as if you know anything about narcotics. You are however correct about mixing any opioid with alcohol. Pain killers should not be mixed with benzos either. It is prolly more common than mixing with alcohol is. This kind of misinformation might explain why folks living with chronic pain end up having a hard time getting the pain meds that they need.

The roboblogger is automated and just shoots "relevant" news at us. I have noticed these articles are very very inaccurate more often than not, zom. It's pathetic. Oh well. Topix is still huge and this is one of their "greatest" features

Codeine is actually pritty strong if u drink it straight from the bottle no chaser. Witch is dumb to do but i have ive killed many small 4oz bottles. But yeah though mixing medication is bad and not a good idea at all. Even id you have high tolerances to both. Even though i do it with my subs . But thats at the risk of my life wouldnt recommend anyone else do it.

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.
