Ridiculous that they are considering pulling Tylenol and Vicodin off shelves because of overdose risk. Why not just lower dose or make warnings clearer. It would be a shame to penalize those who really need these drugs to be free from chronic pain because of those who fail to read and follow directions on a package. What next, outlaw Big Macs because if we eat too many we could become obese and die of a heart attack??

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) from ZTOPIX. COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
