Reading this makes me feel like pure poo...=( Even if they make it out somewhat okay, they are given an unnecessary crutch for life...

I have heard but never verified the information. But apparently there is a study, where the clinicians did not know that the mother was on any type of opiates, and the babies behavior when born was not different than normall

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.
