This is kind of unusual in that pills where all over the bed. Most addicts commit suicide when they don't have any or enough pills & they're in withdrawal. It would be nice if just once the news media would show a positive story. Like one the thousands of chronic pain suffers that are able to live a normal relatively pain free life because of Oxycodone. I would be happy to tell them the positive impact oxycodone has had on my life. But I guess it's more sensational to concentrate on the negative stories. What's the ol saying in the news business "If it bleeds it leads". And I guess the anti drug general public doesn't want to hear oxy success stories.

Pharma is a cut throat business. It spends a large amount of time and money on lawsuits related to its faulty, fraudulent product. Its dangerous products are licenced by the FDA which is basically a licence to experiment on consumers without their knowing. Consumers assume that these products are safety tested, and don't realize its they who are the safety test subjects.

This statement is so not true;, most addicts commit suicide when they do not have any or enough pills & they are in withdrawal.
First off, i think the word,"most"is a bit harsh. I've never heard of anyone committing suicide over having withdrawals. I have gone through withdrawals more times than i cancount and have never considered killing myself. I mostly just have thoughts of getting high.

More dea propaganda to try and justify their bloated paychecks! There is NO pain pill 'crisis.' Just people too stupid to read the directions on a prescription bottle!

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.
