    Be careful what you wish for. What begins as fun and games suddenly becomes a prison cell with no escape, unless you're one of the rare, lucky few. I'm no puritan by any means it's just for about 15 yrs I was addicted horribly to pain pills. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    So like I said, be careful. Because once you get hooked it's a full time job without any end in site. Never enough to go around and it becomes all that you care about.

    Blood thinners and cholestrol lowering pills...Works great, get a little scratch and you'd think you were stabbed by the amount of blood dripping

    Ive got a bottle of roxicet for crohns disease but im not a big painkiller guy so i rarely use them.

    I was diagnosed with adhd in 1988 and find dexedrine(detroamphetamine) to work much better for me than adderall, yet everyone loves adderall so im not going to bash it, to each their own.
    Just stay away from Desoxyn. Its meth, literally, methamphetamine in pill form. Most doctors wont prescribe it, and its expensive as fuck, but its out there.

    As for non-CS, i swear by my Rozerem. Ambien would have me doing things like sleeping in my front yard or taking strange walks in the middle of the night but rozerem puts me out without any of that.

    Ever since those assholes shot up that pharmacy in Suffolk County its been a lot harder to get CS Scripts from docs.

    It used to be you could go to 5 different docs and get 5 scripts then go to 5 different pharmacies and bingo bango done.

    Now its all tied together with computers, cant get away with shit.

    I am on a multitude of meds due to Type 1 diabetes and 2 heart attacks. They all help to keep me alive so I enjoy that. ;)

    Be careful. It is incredibly easy for your body to get addicted to these pills. The pain pills, xanax, ativan..Withdrawel is awful and very difficult..

    Tore my bicep and had reconstructive surgery a few years back and was prescribed vicodin. I was lucky as they legitimately attacked the pain and never felt high from them.

    Years before that i was in a horrible car accident and they gave me percocet. After the second day taking them I threw them away as I could see them causing a "problem".

    Not a real big fan of the Pharmaceutical industry. I understand some prescription meds are necessary. But I will steer clear of them whenever possible.

    Shit like ADD/ADHD, kinda think that's all bullshit.

    When prescribed and monitored properly, they can be extremely helpful for non cancer chronic pain. You have to have a plan in place, in conjunction with your physician to taper yourself off as you body becomes dependent on the drug. There is a big difference between physical dependance and addiction. Personally, I hate all opioids, but, there is a legitimate need for them.


    No ADHD is very real and if you had a child with ADHD then you would praise the pharmaceutical industry for reducing their symptoms and allowing your child to interact more normally. Seen it first hand many times. Having said that, there is a trend to over prescribe them in adults now.

    I agree with all of it. My mom had terminal cancer and was in incredible pain..Thank god for those drugs..

    When i was in my early twenties I started having panic attacks. Doc prescribed xanax. It helped me out greatly. I learned to control them on my own, but getting off those pills was very very hard...even weening off them..
    I'm talking about people who really don't need them and take them..

    So many kids are being prescribed medication for ADHD and all it's doing is conditioning these kids to believe that unless they're "on something", they won't be able to function properly. That could last they're entire lives. Down the road, additional meds could potentially have to be prescribed to treat the side effects caused by the first prescription.

    For the most part, I think poor diet, poor parenting and crappy teachers are more to blame for the behavior in kids and the rise in ADHD prescriptions.

    Only Synthroid for many years to replace the function of a small section of my thyroid that had been removed due to what turned out to be a benign growth on it.

    Haha!

    It has actually worn away the walls of my esophagus making me like 10x more likely to get esophagus cancer so I am taking everything I can to help prevent that.
