More yellow journalism. Why should legitimate pain patients suffer just because a few idiots can't read the directions on a prescription bottle? This sounds like more dea propaganda.

If they're really so concerned about us, why not make tobacco a schedule 2?

Tens of thousands die every year from tobacco-related lung cancer.

Are you really incocknito? Only asking because, as you know, there are those who would "borrow" another's identity.

Anyway, welcome back (if it is truly you returning)!:-D

Pair of 9's!

You're probably right.

If it goes to a schedule II I'll be livid. That means no refills and I'll be treated like a second class citizen when trying to fill. Hydro is nothing like oxy and should not be treated like it.

Can't argue with that.

Maybe all the CPP's in the country should call or write the FDA and tell them how they feel.

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.
