I know I'm blessed. I lost so many people I loved and who loved me on the whim of a billionaire. Fuck Purdue and fuck the Sackler family. There isn't enough justice in the world for the blood on their hands. Sober from Oxycontin, heroin, and all opiates since 4/26/2012. Praise be to God. 🙏

  • The DEA is terrorizing doctors and chronic pain patients. People who live with incurable injuries /illnesses that cause debitating pain and disability are dieing daily because prescription pain medications are being denied and even stopped in people who've been able to function while taking them. Less than 1% of people who take prescription pain medication become addicted. Addiction is caused by a gene that is not triggered in everyone. Look into Don't Punish Pain Rally on Facebook. There are plenty of articles and patients that tell the truth about prescription pain medication. The epidemic is an illicit fentanyl, cocaine, heroin and meth issue. You are only one accident away from needing pain medications yourself. The inhumane treatment that rare/chronic illness patients is receiving has gotten out of hand. It's now in hospitals for people who have surgeries. People are being given Ibuprofen for painful surgeries. The prescribing of prescription meds has decreased by 60% yet overdoses have increased. This is because people are desperate and going to the streets and getting tainted pressed pills cut with illicit fentanyl. Dependence and addiction are totally different situations. Pain medication is the only medication being limited even though THE FDA has no upper limit to opioid pain meds. You can die from kidney and liver failure from OTC acetaminophen and Ibuprofen. Every day people are killing themselves because their bodies can't take the pain any longer. Please do an update with correct information that is relevant now. Pill mills have long been gone.

    • Where did you get your statistics from? Also, addiction is not caused by a gene, where did you even read that?! There can be a genetical PREDISPOSITION to addiction, but that only determines the treshhold. Everyone can get addicted if the sufficient conditions are met. EVERYONE. Also, did you ever wonder why here in Europe pain medications exist and are prescribed and yet we don't have an oppioid epidemic? Because here pharmaceutical companies are FORBIDDEN from marketing their products directly to the public, and doctors alone are the ones who decide wich treatment to prescribe. And besides, there are many different pain-killers that don't turn into an addict as easily as oxycodone does. Prescribing a oxycodone, or any other oppioid, for a simple back-pain is like shooting a mosquito with a bazooka. In most cases an NSAID is more than enough, and they don't produce addiction.

  • A downside to this is now pain patients are suffering and dying because they cannot get adequate care. For example, I had massive surgery (first rib removal, scalenectomy, neurolysis, subclavian vein bypass, subclavian artery bypass), then had a bleed and needed further emergency surgery to repair and evacuate a liter of blood from my neck, then because of course an infection. Pain control? 1 week of pain meds. I can’t take NSAIDs (kidney failure)- which also limits tricyclic antidepressants, and meds like gabapentin. 1 week after ripping out a bone, muscles, nerve scraping, and vascular bypasses.

They're now, often unable to obtain prescription renewals. We know where that path leads desperate people. Keep up the good work Mr. Oliver!

  • the fentanyl is now being mixed with benzene to give a stronger high, resulting in people od'ing. just last week alone, at my work, we had over 2 dozen opioid overdoses because people are becoming more resistant to regular drugs. And the solution is when od's happen is to pump Naxolone in their airways to counter act with the fentanyl so it doesn't trigger the body to go into a coma and die. And you would think during a pandemic people would have less access to drugs, yeah no

  • Recovering addict here. In the early 2000’s I was doctor shopping and they handed out opiates like Halloween candy. I often took between 30-45 Vicodin a day.... Then to coke, then to crack, then to heroin. Need help? Find it. Wanna end up dead, in jail or the madhouse?? Keep going. Not getting preachy. I would have told me to f$&k off 11 years ago. Education, crackdown on big pharmaceutical, mental health awareness.... This problem is covering the dark shattered underbelly of the American dream. Be good to one another 💙

  • A Point that gets lost (I know i'm late) Purdue released oxycodone, oxycodone led to a generation of more addicts than ever before, board members and legislators demanded a solution. Their solution? Oxycontin, which the thinking was instead of instant release (like oxycodone) its EXTENDED release and therefore has less potential to be abused. That would've worked except they made the chemical makeup "snortable" and people realized oxycontin worked practically the same and even better than oxycodone when snorted. Now they've supposedly changed the makeup again to make it "not snortable" but they've failed miserably as addicts can still IV it. Although by the time your IV oxycontin your to far gone and have to go to H just to sustain yourself from withdrawals. Just like Rockefeller they come up with the problem and solution. Now they're changing opiate laws entirely and basically leaving suburban moms, and dads to go through withdrawals and have cut their prescriptions, FORCING THEM to go to the streets to find H and at the point its totally done. It's a dark reality. The damage is done, Purdue was successful in totally demolishing a generation of innocence. Its going to take us a couple of generations to recover if we even can, to make sure our children's children aren't addicts.

  • The issue I have is that people that abuse them and get addicted make it so much harder people like me that have issues with ulcers due to NSAID use and hemangioma on my liver from ibuprofen and need some kind of beneficial pain relief to get it. And for me, I think, the reason I’m not addicted is because I smoke marijuana and don’t feel any withdrawals and because I don’t ever take more than I’m prescribed

There was no poppy in Afghanistan before American got there and now we’ve been guarding it for 2 decades. These guys are almost as culpable for useless, endless wars as the industrial military complex.
