Great article. I see no fines or jail time or punishment. Disgusting....deserve their throats slit.
I tried the Medical Marijuana. Insurance will not cover it and in order for it to help it takes a lot. Taking recommended amount did nothing. MMJ is a big racket in my mind if you have the type of pain Ink has.
My wife gets occasional bad gall bladder attacks, and uses that when such occurs. She hates how it makes her feel the next ay. I will mention to her the cannabis thing. Funny story. She had to get her prescription filled for that drug you guys are talking about. She takes it to Walmart, takes 2 days to get anything there filled. We go to pick it up, and someone had stole off the part of the prescription it takes for them to fill it. Ha So back to the doc and another 40 mi trip , 4 times and 3 days later!!! lol I am on a Humana medicare advantage type plan, I get my drugs thru them in the mail. Works great.
Yes! Got a letter last month from my insurance company that I cant have my medication anymore.
They won't mail a an opioid though will they?
Try med rx it's like a generic deal that I got hooked up with through a pharmacist when mine went to 400+ out of pocket. They have a free card or I pay 10$$$ a month for their good card which saves me over 300
"Dependency is dependency" Opioids WILL kill you. People...will kill you for opiods to boot. As I used to say you go make a pot deal and you bring a handshake. You go make a herion,coke,etc deal and you bring a gun. There is a reason for that...death lingers around the deadly things in life.
Getting off opioids can kill you without medical help. If someone tries to quit cold turkey, they will wish they were dead, because they are near death IF they make it over the hump. I picked my sons limp body out of the bathtub after I heard the light taps on the tub from him calling for help, scary shit. Thank God I heard those taps.
Doug, I am a Pharmaceutical development scientist who has spent decades working on opiates, NSAIDs, CBD and THC to help bring pain relief to those who truly need it. I also worked with Medtronics on the first spinal cord stimulators to control pain. If you want some real information beyond the conjecture and false interpretation presented by most, PM me and I will be glad to give you some real insight based on the reality of science and data over the past 30 years. You are quite correct, neither THC, CBD nor NSAIDs are direct replacements for opiates and the change over is complicated. However, there is a lot more to understanding the science of pain than those simple facts. Knowledge is power and I have several decades of clinical experience and understanding to share...if you want it.
Sorry you went thru that, BUT thanks for posting.
I am one of the lucky ones who quit cold turkey on my own. The first 3 days were so bad my Wife hid my 9mm just in case. I had a 20 year dependency on pain meds from mild to finally maxing out on Oxycodone. I had no choice as I ran out 5 days before I could get a refill. Long story short I found out the "pain" I was masking was just withdrawal and not actual pain. I have been now diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritus but keep it to a dull roar with a minimal dose of prednisone and Ibuprophen. I suggest any one trying to get off opioids do so with Medical help. I tried the taper down method unsuccessfully.
