  3. Terrible.  It strikes me as a Big Pharma commercial.  Very few healthcare professionals in the United States have any training at all regarding opioids let alone opioid prescribing.  No wonder this poison is in every corner of the country.

  4. Oh and 120 norco , 120 soma , 90 Xanax , 30 ambien and they in 1 mo took me down 30 norco 30 abein so no ambien and 60 soma , 130 dilaudid ( in 4 mo) I didn’t argue because I didn’t know it would leave my body and mind destroyed!! With no solutions to help me ,they want to blame me for my addiction and I didn’t prescribe myself these meds , my arthritis is worse then ever!!

How do I beat this withdrawal without dying? I will always have level 7 pain , but I rather deal with that then what I’m going through now , the doctors won’t help me they just don’t want to get in trouble for giving me 90 oxycodone per mo 240 4 mg diludid per mo, just stop me on the pills , I don’t know what to do! HELP ME!

  6. This dude would have benefited greatly from a Suboxone clinic.
    SCREW METHADONE ! !
    You can actually taper off from Bupenorphine.. But, i will say that for someone who hasn't been badly addicted for a long period of time, like years and years, cold turkey sucks but will work.. 6-8 days of misery then you stand up, walk into the kitchen and eat a bowl of hot soup.

  7. Lol. I went cold turkey from pain meds and it was one he'll of a ride. But got through it rather quick compared to tapering. Cold turkey dudes….. it's the fastest. After 1 week it's over. And then hit the gym. This guy is just weak.

  8. They want us addicted. They get a monthly visit and kick-backs from the drug manufacturers. The overall design of this is to control us as one becomes a ghoul/zombie-like person on these medications.
