My 22 year old cousin died in November from a Heroin OD. The painkillers became too expensive for him to buy on the street so it was cheaper for him to buy heroin. An avoidable tragedy.

I'm sorry for your loss NorCal. Its so scary. Addiction is a horrible disease, but it is real. Heroin is one of the cheapest forms of opioids to abuse, but the most addictive. Being illigal like it is, the ways people have to go about getting it is dangerous too. I wish I knew what the answer is, but I don't. Its just wide open out there for the people who have no concience (sp) to take advantage of those who are addicted. Blessings out to all those in the grips of this disease today

Thanks Babysister. It is very scary and very sad. He was a great kid but couldn't get sober. Went to like 6 rehabs and just couldn't get it. He switched to heroin because shooting Roxie and Oxy became too expensive.

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.
