Well half of the drugs she mentioned, I have used it and abused it. But never been stupid like these fucktards. never introduce stupid people's to drugs becuase that will flip their minds and never be the same.
The only thing people are dying from is the trash your government is bringing in to the streets ......and it's all planned out for a reason .. it's not because your government loves and worries about your ass.. . ....
They start giving kids meds for ADD, ADHD and other types but they tell the kids that to be the best version of themselves that's possible, to be smarter,better behaved and socially acceptable, do better in school and have more friends they need to take medication. This starts at a very young age and the kids believe that the only way they can be their best they must be medicated.Skip ahead to when they graduate from high school and/or college and those meds they have had most of their lives is taken away and they start to feel things they never felt before since they are no longer sedated.it scares the hell out of them and some do make the transition and stay away from drugs but the majority do not. Weed is the most common since a lot of them smoked in high school while still on their medication. Those who are unable to find what they need from weed will always try to get prescription drugs first and our great opioid epidemic has begun. Just look at the overdose rates compared to any other time, year after year they are going up. The problem is we have raised a generation of people who believe they have to be medicated to feel and act normal and must be sedated to have any chance of being their best and doing a good job. The epidemic has more to do schools and teachers that want kids to act like adults from kindergarten until graduation and are willing to drug them to get this effect without caring about long term effects. It makes me sick to see where it begins and since we also live in a time where nobody wants to be blamed for anything so they point their fingers at the drug companies but never talk about their shitty parenting or thinking about signing their children up to take the medication since they need a parent or guardian's signature and approval to drug the child!
FFUUCCKKK SOMA!!! My doc gave me it and said itll help me sleep. BULLSHIT!! What it did was a hour after taken it I blacked out and the next MORNING everyone is telling me OMFG WHAT YOU DID LAST NIGHT WAS CRAZY N FUNNY!! N how I was telling ppl of and calling them on there bluffs, And I have NO memory of this AT ALL!! I will NEVER take that to sleep EVER again. You have to be VERY careful with what you take cuz if this happened to you as well god knows if youll kill yourself cuz you have no idea what your doing at all.
I’m prescribed 20mg of oxycodone 4 times a day for severe back and neck pain, I also have cancer. I spoke with my doctor about raising my dosage as I’ve stayed at the 20mg for over 2 years now and it’s just not working like it used to. I know over time the body gets used to it, I only take it as prescribed, never earlier than the 4 hour mark. Well now, when I approach the 3-3.5 hour mark I’m feeling ALL my pain and I have to wait till the 4 hour mark as not to run out of meds sooner than I can refill. I also get procedures like RFA to try to fill the pain down a bit 2 times a year.
He explained to me that with the new laws, he can’t raise my mgs as I am at the legal limit of the 20mg 4x a day. He wrote me a script for Baclofen 10mg 3 times a day to go with the oxycodone. I just took it like 20 minutes ago and I’m hoping it helps and jives well with my stomach.
The pharmacy NEVER has my oxy in stock and always has to order it which takes another 3-4 days to get and I can’t even give them my script until the day I can refill. They look at me like I’m crazy when I tell them I’m confused as to why they never have it in stock. I guess I’m on a high dose? I wouldn’t know as I’ve only ever taken what the dr has prescribed and as directed on the bottle.
I did some reading about “breakthrough” drugs to help while my oxy is fading off. He has no idea what I’m talking about 🤷🏻♀️ I’ve only heard of it on YouTube but my friend has a really messed up back and is prescribed morphine and methadone for her back. I’m not trying to get myself addicted to anything crazy, but the pain is really bad and leaves me bedbound and in tears often.
What I’m asking is.... is my dose really that high? Is there a different Med he could prescribe that might help me better than being topped out at the highest dose of what I’m already on with minimal relief?
If you as taking meds for severe pain, what are you taking? I’m trying to figure out some other possible options.
I been on same dosage of my xanax and loratab for 16 yrs and I haven't gotten a tolerance or needed more if you take as prescribed and you have real long term health issues these medications save your life I'm not sure about the other stuff on here but I know my meds haven't caused any problems of course if you don't have ypur meds your not ok because to those who truly need it it's like if u take away Zoloft food.water oxygen etc
What about the worst drug of ALL TIME?!?!?! Student Loans. It's great when you use them to better yourself and learn but then BAM they'll ruin your life and you can NEVER go through withdrawal because you can NEVER GET RID OF THEM. No wonder why our country is so fucked up. Everywhere you look, Stay in School, get and education and be poor for the rest of your life and struggle while watching your friends and family build lives and buy houses while you're still eating noodles with 1 billion grams of sodium out of a dried packet living in squalor. Yay! Fun times so drink up and end it at 40, cuz your student loans will be there until you DIE.
Opioids are not the problem.. Dumb ass people trying to abuse what should be a life saving drug are. Some people need pain meds to live a somewhat normal life, chronic pain is very real and a leading cause of suicide. Abusers are the problem.
I was stopped by this dudes and almost died of excruciating pain but this dude has been helping me for years now and i can't help but share to my brothers and sisters
wickr me on ( oxycodonepills)..... I can't share my number . I will be ready to help all those who want to get these . The government is ready to let us die while they give the drugs to real dudes who don't need them
Let us fight against all this
I live with Oxycodone ( +13185991361) , you can reach me there or write me on whatsapp through +1 4435852327, let me help you out to get pain meds as i do
Soma Coma in NC is considered where they eat 15 or so Somas and start falling sleep but they don't mix it with anything. Ppl abuse everything here because it's cheaper get it off street than a Dr. Sad.
I'm on Fentanyl patches for a legit reason, being severe pain. I can say that you should never use it unless you are in serious pain because when it wears off you feel like dying, like every muscle is tearing apart, and more.
I also use soma in order to sleep. Another is hydrocodone for breakthrough pain. Soma is more dangerous than thought. If you take it, you'll pass out on the spot no matter what you're doing. If you overdose, you can stop breathing easily.
Also Fentanyl is 100 times stronger than morphine. So you can see why going off of it is so terrible. One day if healed, I'll rid myself of all these drugs and be free.
Love how every wanna be film maker with a camera talks about how evil prescription drugs are. The fact is millions of people really need these drugs,and now can't get the, because losers took them for no reason, or people refused to discipline themselves. You will never see a documentary on disturbing lack of self control in America. Let's just blame drugs!
you should have a video on how doctors put people on medication that interacts with others. It happen to me Paxil and Ativan I was charged three times for assault that was the reason for the 2 drugs in my system
Talking from my own experience. I was badly burned in a accident at work.
I was a boxer and hade never done alcohol or drugs of any caind.
When I came out of hospital I was very hill.
Didn't know I hade been given large amounts of morphine for 9 month straight.
Then I hade to go back every few months for skin grafhts, thus went on for the next 3 year's.
When I went back to work my PTSD CAME UP.
I was given antidepressants but they dint work.
Then I hade a boul op.
And was given drahidocodene, I found it stop my phisical pain and my depression.
But my doctor never told me of the dangers of been addicted to it.
I dint know it was a opiod.
I thought my doctor wouldn't give me any thing that was bad for me.
It cost me my personality my spirituality, and the love of my family.
Now I came of them after going through he'll.
Only to have to take them again 6 years later after having pernamemt pain due to all the cuts from 32 different operations.
Yes 32 .
Only 3 were from non ralated to the burns.
I wish I hade hade a educated choice erlaier on.
Now I'm on and off them depending on the severety of the pain.
I don't recommend opieds if any caind.
Unless is a last line of defence against pain.
I pray all of u that are addicted to this cainds of pain killers.
That we all win the war of addiction.
This goes out to all .
Wishing you all health and happiness.
Unless you suffer with chronic pain that interferes with the quality of your life you might not understand why a pain medication can be a blessing and at the same time knowing that very same blessing is a cursed one. Educating yourself about a drug your going to be taking, understanding how it works, what to be aware of so you know the dangers. Respecting the drug and knowing the power it has needs to be understood. Proper education should be a mandatory requirement before administering it. Self awareness allows you to recognize if something isn't right and needs to be addressed. The real danger is when no education has been provided and one is handed a prescription of 120 powerful addictive pain meds and told follow the directions! To those who suffer with chronic pain, pain medication can most definitely help improve the quality of your life. If the decision is made to take pain medication then the answer is of course "why wouldn't I" And for those who do not suffer with chronic pain affecting their quality of life they just can't conceive why anyone would even consider taking such an addictive drug in the first place. I would almost bet that all of most people know that pain medication is addictive. Because people in general don't like to take responsibility unless is it something that brings them reward will use ignorance when being confronted about addiction. It doesn't help that loved ones of addicts want to believe it is not happening to their loved one or family therefore they enable their loved ones addiction by blaming others or even themselves as if to justify it. Coming from a family riddled with addiction I do know this, If you decided and were a willing participant then you did this to yourself. All the excuses and reasons they might have, even some understandable reasons are MOOT nevertheless and how you were affected by it is as well. Excuses or reasons don't change the situation or make one less of an addict. It is our responsibility to research and make educated decision and take responsibility for our decisions. The information is out there and if you don't get an answer find another professional that will give or guide you to it. To say it's not my fault I wasn't told, I didn't understand is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. The real question is did you even ask or do you even care because you just wanted the prescription? Shame on the doctors for giving people what they don't need however it is also shame on us for being ignorant.
8:41 “codeine is much less intense than heroin or morphine.” These people don’t seem to know anything about medicine. Codeine is a prodrug for morphine, meaning codeine only provides pain relief because it converts itself into Morphine. It’s just a small and unpredictable dose of it.
Anti-depressants likely do more harm than good, researchers find

Check your vitamin deficiency! If low, take it!
i think that Karfentanil and Desomorphine should be in list, but they dont write prescription for those two but both are way much deadlier than Oxys or Fentanyl. And Desomorphine was painkiller medicine least since WW2 and Karfentanyl is like a Fentanyl but (like 100 times stronger) could kill if you dont wear rubbergloves. In Finland have reported like six dead from Karfentanyl an it is allready spreading around world.
I had a seizure from alprazolam withdrawal. Said it lasted 30 seconds before they got an IV in me and K. O.'d me. It was the best part of my experience at the hospital, because I remember nothing right before and I was out for a long time, the rebound anxiety is the worst.
Heroin users will not take codine btw. Because it's usually mixed with other stuff like Tylenol. Codine caps out around 800 MG. And if your using heroin it would take grams upon grams of codine to even get anything. Bro was a junkie
Fentanyl is not just used for breakthrough pain. It is also used for chronic, long-term pain. Short-acting opioids are often prescribed with it for breakthrough pain.
There is a quite a bit of misinformation in this video, and information that has been omitted. Smh.
Besides anesthesiologists, nurses are almost always the ones pushing IV fentanyl. Pretty sure you just made up that “fact,” that only doctors should and do give it. Besides surgeons and maybe some types of radiologists and some specialties like cardiology and gastroenterology, doctors are writing orders for nurses and the nurses are putting in the iv’s, drawing blood, giving meds, etc.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
