Why should legitimate patients have to pay for this woman's son's inability to read directions on a prescription bottle? Why should they have to pay for the recklessness and stupidity of others?

I agree... People that actually need the medication aren't being able to get it ... Everybody else shouldn't have to suffer because other people make poor decisions.... If u take them as directed , more then, this stuff don't happen... But then you take a bunch and drink alcohol with it, that's not good...

Yep. Sounds like her son was plenty old enough (21) to read. Perhaps the mom should realize that a lot of really good people (her son would be one in her opinion) are indeed drug addicts. I see more and more folks get their much needed xanax taken away because they are on their much needed pain killers. OD is usually the result of someone who didn't give the two drugs enough of the respect that they deserve. No one OD's on safe dosages. It is always a result of abusing drugs. Doctors have enough fear of scrutiny when it comes to prescribing something that can help someone without the need of someone else abusing the care to a point that it is considered man slaughter due to misuse and abuse.Even pill mill docs and "Dr. Feel Goods" expect most people to respect the drugs and expect people to use their minds at least a little. The only problem with the doctor that gave that 21 year old access to drugs is the fact that he didn't know enough about the individual that obviously had a drug problem. The doctor didn't know near as much as the angry mother (poor lady whom lost a child early) should have known herself. If she wants to blame a doctor for knowing just as little as she did about the drug abuse issues her son had, then perhaps she should have paid more attention to her son. Perhaps all other mothers out there should understand that the best of us can easily get tied up with prescription drug abuse. All I can really say now is for the young man to rest in peace and for the mother to hold her head up high and know that many great people OD and die from drugs. It doesn't make them "bad" people.

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.
