My Dr. told me today that the FDA is recommending that the dose and/or prescriptions for Percocet be reduced. I do not believe this should be done. It would be a shame to punish those who take their medication responsibly because of some who don't.

The FDA should spend a couple hours reading the threads from the Vic and oxy board and see there is a big difference between the 2 drugs. It's ludicrous they want to put hydro in the same class as oxy!
I agree 1000 percent! they should know what they are talking about before they take such a position

Correction...they do know and they are trying to act like they care.

If this happens...things will get really bad for CPP's.

the government has their hand in EVERYTHING! I mean c' Mon they are even regulating light bulbs now. I say like any drug out there you can abuse anything. they should legalize all drugs. if people want to abuse it, they know the consequence. like cigarettes they kill people but yet it's legal?? alcohol is legal. if they paid more attention to the crappy economy we wouldn't be in this mess, everyone would be happy cause they have their choice of drug and those that abuse.... it's thinning out the heard... sorry, I get so mad because I struggle on a daily basis with pain ... the doctors and government don't care

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.

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot 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.
