    Prescription drug addiction

    B.C. has one of the highest rates of prescription painkiller use in the country, according to new a new study led by Simon Fraser University.

    The study looked at retail pharmacies across Canada, and found there's been a 50-per-cent hike over the past decade in the number of prescriptions filled for powerful painkillers called opioids.

    What he heck do they expect - we've just had how many years under the Campbell government?

    It's true tho. There is an alarming amount of use & abuse going on.... I know more than a few people who have (legitimately in most cases) prettymuch become completely dependant on Percs & Oxys
    "I dread beyond all else the growth of the petty tyranny of restrictive legislation, the transference of disciplinary authority from the judiciary to the constabulary, the abandonment of every constitutional safeguard of individual liberty."

    I'm a big fan of ibuprofen. Take it probably 3 days a week. But the narcotic strength stuff can put you on a downward spiral

    2008 just called. It needs it's headline back.

    But Oxy is a serious issue amongst a lot of people. Causing a lot of misery and problems to the ones that get hooked.
    The difference between you and me .........

    I took Oxycodone and Alprazolam in 2009 every 4 hours for 6 months prior to my lower back surgery and continued taking them for about a month after the surgery.
    I kept a journal of the effects (good and bad) for the entire time I took them. I stopped cold turkey and I can tell you it was hell for about a week.
    The most dangerous side-effect of these narcotic pain killers is that you have no idea how "high" you are. My Subaru had wings

    Its bad! My kid just lost her good friend to Oxy. Got in a car crash, got prescribed them then couldnt stop. After my surgery I was given them like Tic Tacs...200 at a time....I know why people get is a great high!!! I wanted to go ride days after a major operation ,,,and thought I could..?? Still get pain meds but no more oxy. or Perks...

    I feel I am missing out here. It seems I was born without the receptors to take in narcotics or booze or even marijuana. My internist tried everything he could think of before I had cancer surgery. Turns out I cannot get high, or drunk and nothing will kill pain. Fun times. Am the perfect designated driver, though.
