Ya know, Oxycodone/Oxycontin gets a bad rap as it is written all of the time that someone has overdosed and died from taking too much of the medication as said in this piece. However, factually, the instance of death from Oxycodone/Oxycontin alone is rare. In this piece, they want readers to think it is the pain medication only, but then one paragraph from the end, it mentions how the woman was an insomniac and took too much sleep aid as well. It is the combination of medication that kills often. Patients have to watch out for that, more than taking a little too much. I don't mean to say that taking too much is ok, it isn't. I'm just stating facts. I wish these articles would concentrate on the actual reason for the overdose, not just try to scare the public.
I've been away for a bit, nice to see everyone!
