We who actually suffer from chronic pain, are all suffering. We are not abusing these meds. We dont snort, shoot or smoke them. We are just trying to function in life. Our kids suffer because they see us suffering and we are so limited do what we can do. No, dont say we shouldnt have kids then. Not everyone suffered before they had kids. Some of us actually need them. People are commiting suicide because the pain is not like anything one can imagine. "Junkies" who say they dont want to be dope sick and keep using because of it..this is to you. imagine living EVERY DAY sick like that because you cannot have meds. This is the type of life we have when getting out legitimate medication is an issue. Every day is a painful sick battle. You guys use it for fun. We use it to shower. Raise kids. Buy groceries. Do dishes. Every day things. Stop using dope sickness as your excuse to keep getting high.

The cdc, dea, fda war on opioids is a a stupid, bureaucratic, scapegoating, cruel broad brush set of laws to punish doctors and their pain patients for what a minority of abusers do with opioids . This is against International and US constitutional rights and laws .

I know where I live in the state of Connecticut it’s quite easy to get on methadone maintenance In other states around the country it’s quite hard. I’ve met so many men and women of all ages who are on methadone maintenance because of the cutbacks in pain management. They are on anywhere from 100 to 300 mg a day of methadone. One lady has been on it for over 10 years. But she isn’t such physical agony the clinic fight to keep her They know if she were to be sent off due to insurance issues or what have you she would resort to street drugs. And as we all know Heroin is killing people because it’s cut with fentanyl & carfentanyl

I too am a victim of the war on opioid medications. I was being successfully treated for three years for severe chronic pain due to a genetic condition and a botched surgery. With medication, I had at least some quality of life. Now I can barely function. Doctors are so scared of losing their licenses they aren’t prescribing the medications patients like me need to function. Why? Because it’s the “hot topic” in the media. Why are people that have never abused these very necessary medications being punished for the deeds of a minority of assholes that chose to abuse them?? It’s not fair. It’s not ethical or morally right.

Dumb ass power hungry lawyers / government want to control everything ... Lawyers typically overestimate their intellect. Moreover, some jerks equate money with intelligence, as though wealth confers brainpower. I'm just a pathetic research mathematician with a PhD in mathematical physics, having completed a post-doc at UC Berkeley. Many of these lawyers just juggle 'boilerplate,' assuming the 'layman' is unaware of their fraudulent billing practices. My life, though, is actually joyful on a daily basis. Each day presents another opportunity to better understand our amazing universe which is written in the language of mathematics. Physicians are trained to treat illnesses that sadly, may involve intense pain and suffering. Allow physicians to use their expertise without government interference; it is ridiculous to limit opiate doses to so many morphine equivalents. Individuals vary widely in their response to opioid analgesics, and it is the PHYSICIAN'S job to titrate an effective and safe dosing regimen. Most people who are treated for legitimate health issues are unlikely to become addicts. The government should leave the business of treating sick people to medical professionals who have invested years of their lives in their education. The 'War on Drugs' has been lost. In fact, it has simply spread crime and corruption . Look at the effective policies that have been implemented in a number of European countries such as Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, etc. The ' War on Drugs' is yet another pocket liner for criminal syndicates and associated government banditos. I never imagined that our wonderful country would be in such a state of decline in morals, effective social programs to address the many ills that plague our society, including social cohesiveness, meaning closer ties to and empathy for 'other' Americans. Together we stand, divided we fall; divide and conquer. Thanks for reading this rant, but I do feel better. Remember, no matter who you are, you are neither more or less important than anyone else! You are blessed to have been given the gift of your existence, the ability to experience the universe which attains self - awareness through our amazing appearance in the universe; the delicate balance of physical laws somehow allowed the miracle of consciousness. We consist of stardust. Hate is learned and originated from the ego; we are born without hatred. We are alive for just an instant; love yourself and love others even more ... Namaste

See I'm also a chronic pain patient on opiods and I'm only 26. I'm going through the same thing as this woman. They don't care what they are doing by taking our meds away, they think it's going to save lives but I can tell you right now its going to take more lives. The people that get cut off are going to go to worse drugs like heroin for pain relief and overdose from taking too much to subside their pain. If the drs are doing their jobs and doing pill counts and drug tests like I have to get every Dr appointment there should be no reason they should have to cut us chronic pain patients off that aren't abusing their scripts. If its managed like it should be by the doctors then I just don't see why they have to take them away! 😔 I pray for everyone else in the same situation as me and this woman. Its only a matter of time before mine are gone along with my quality of life. 😔

A lot of people are just ending their lives and it's so sad because they just can't live with the pain anymore. I have a few friends here in Ohio that have either tried or contemplated suicide because of the pain, yet Ohio has outlawed even CBD OIL. I think we need to turn more to farmalogical rather than Pharmacological.

As a documented patient with severe degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis, I am TERRIFIED of the so-called war on opioids. I would contemplate suicide without lawfully taken pain meds. I use heat, cold, exercise, PT, and other modalities first and alongside the meds but CANNOT do without them. Does society seriously WANT more disabled people or more functional people?

This over reaction to treat all pain patients like drug addicts is disgusting..When are people gonna realize drug addicts will do anything to get high and to let the actions of drug addicts dictate the laws for everyone is madness. The government is so worried about addiction that they're willing to let people rive in pain with a destroyed quality of life. Meanwhile addicts just switch to heroin, So they're only hurting the actual people in pain while booting heroin sales.

I’m with you hun!! I’ve been on pain meds since my mining accident when I was 23 yrs old. I’ve done all the physio pre-op all pain reducing without opioids to the point if surgery. Unfortunately in my case my surgery turned out ineffective and subsequently a failure. Pain levels skyrocketed and I was told there would be nothing left to do to help me than to simply try and keep me comfortable. Well over several years of ‘experimentation ‘ of different types and strengths of meds the drs. and I found what works best for me and determined which are detrimental to my overall health and well-being. All that said, I went on for many many years with some quality of life..not totally pain free mind you, but one I could live with. Recently my pain dr. retired from practice amid all this ‘opioid crisis hoopla’ and this is where my accident, my pain and all that goes with it went from bad to simply unimaginable!! Everywhere I go I keep hearing this same old broken record over and over..”you don’t have the pain warranting these meds”...”oh, we no longer prescribe those meds”...”you must find a dr. who will prescribe them but you likely won’t “....and so on and so forth. Meanwhile my medication refill date is getting closer and closer. One month I found a nurse practitioner that helped but she was a temp. out of Toronto...then find a dr. that told me all my tests will be have to be redone and I’ll be receiving my meds at least till then..this I found to be untrue immediately as they were cut 35% in one shot!! My pain levels have now shot back up to almost pre-surgery levels. My daily life has gone from productive to mostly unbearable. I cannot even do the daily and basic house chores I normally do. Why do I and so many others suffer like this in such extreme pain because of a ‘crisis’ that has nothing to do with me! I never once used ‘street drugs’ or heroin or any such thing...I have never ‘double-doctored’ or sought out medication illicitly. All I want is to live out my life with some sort of dignity and with a quality afforded so many regular people in this country..not to be looked down upon like some sort of criminal or blight on society today. I help people when and where I can..I spend my money in my local businesses and I am at this time not a drain on society..I don’t want these things to change, but if there is not some sort of policy change enabling chronic pain sufferers to get the relief they require I’m sorry to say that this “opioid crisis” will have another major contributor to it as people by enlarge will not suffer or be left to suffer. They will be forced to break their own principles and seek out relief or in some cases sadly the alternative..the permanent pain killer. There should be no person in today’s advanced society that will be left to suffer the indignity of chronic pain and all that goes with it. ✊THERE MUST BE CHANGE MADE IN OR BY GOVERNMENT IN THIS ALTERNATE CRISIS AND THIS MUST COME IMMEDIATELY BEFORE MORE AVERAGE INNOCENT PEOPLE SUFFER AND/OR DIE!! ✊

People saying that their doctors aren't following the Hippocratic oath because they won't prescribe them opiates clearly don't understand the drug. Opiates are actively harmful over extended periods, doctors cannot prescribe them long term because that is actively harming the patient. That is a violation of the Hippocratic oath. Having chronic pain doesn't mean you aren't abusing a drug when you take it in a way that it wasn't intended to be used in an unhealthy way.
Caitlin Sinclair (30 дней назад)
I have chronic pain. Opiates should NEVER be used as a long term pain medication. They aren't designed for long term use. I can understand why other people with chronic pain might think it's okay, but if you have a medical background/understand the pharmacology of opiate analgesics you'll understand why they shouldn't be used except for short term stints. Your pain is legitimate, but it is not an appropriate or legitimate reason to take opiates for an extended period of time.

Thanks you fucking dope head mother fuckers!!!!!! The stupid illiterate usually younger idiots taking fist fulls of these medications just to get fucking high have ruined the lives of many chronic pain sufferers myself included. I’ve had to take drastic measures to get some relief by going to a Suboxone clinic and basically telling the I’m a drug addict which I’M NOT just so I can get Suboxone which takes the edge off and somewhat keeps me from wanting to blow my head off. Now every time I have to go to this clinic I have to be around the idiots that caused all these new regulations of my once great working pain meds. When I was getting my pain meds I was at least able to work now I can’t. It takes every once of energy I have not to go off on these idiot dope heads at this clinic. My counselor said I needed to do meetings and I had to tell her at that point the real reason I’m there and she wasn’t to happy but soon realized I was in the right. I’m suffering with chronic pain from back surgeries from car accident and falling off the scaffolding plus I’ve been dealing with Round Cell Liposarcoma since 2010 which will eventually kill me. It’s a rare cancer that most don’t even no how to treat. NONE of my doctors will prescribed pain medications anymore and now that I’m going to A Suboxone clinic that makes it even worse because now my fn doctors think I’m a drug addict. Lmao!!!! It’s getting to a point now where I’m buying mass quantities of poppy seeds and working on a substitute to ease my pain. I won’t say anymore about that but it’s ridiculous that us actual pain sufferers have to go through this. Thanks drug addict s and United States freaking government!!!

I feel for her as I understand her. I have had a couple of failed back surgery, the first one they actually had to cut the bones that connects my tailbone to my spine because the bones never aligned right when I was growing in my mothers womb. They cut it then put it back together with rods and plates, I basically have had my whole lower lumbar redone with cadaver bones too. I have been on the same medication for 3 years, I tried to lower my dosage but it didn’t work, but I have never increased my dose. In July Walmart stopped dealing with pain management in our area, so I have went to numerous other places just to be turned away. We found a small pharmacy that has helped us and many others dealing with chronic pain, but just this month she said she won’t have enough to fill most of her patients subscriptions, the DEA is only allowing her to get so many pain pills a month. We have no clue what we are going to do now. This is just horrible, they are gonna cause so much damage to the people who really need these meds to survive. We have already heard of a few people taking their life because that can’t take the pain, oh let’s not forget the people who go to the street to find drugs to help them now. This is pathetic!!

I got stabbed 8x saving someone who was getting murdered. I couldnt walk for over a year until i got oxy off of the streets,it helped me so so much ,it allowed me to get up and strengthen my body without collapsing in unbearable pain that left me in tears ,DAILY!. I finally got better but then was hooked,as i was taking what was available and not what i needed,so i kinda helped and fucked myself. I needed help and they just left me to rot in bed. Im thankful i found what i did. I stand 6,1' at 195 lbs and went down to 140 lbs, if i didnt get up i would have lost ALL OF MY MUSCLE. SO FUCK DOCTORS,FUCK THE GOVT ,FUCK EVERYBODY who thinks they know what ppl are going through. I never did any of that shit for recreational purposes. I hated how i felt,but it got me up and gave me my life back. Im a single dad of 2, wtf you think would have happened to my babies if i didnt DO something. Theyd die of hunger. I truly deeply have an unforgivable hate for all the doctors who refused to help me.

I too have chronic pain , so to keep morons from o d ing , the people  who aren't suffering , decide to let me eat a gun barrel  when I can't  stand it anymore .no one should be allowed to vote any laws in, that effect  us until after we break  their  backs, only then should  their vote count.I get absolutely  no high from my meds, just slight relief . believe me, any ease in pain is priceless . I tried  medical marijuana, all I got was a god awful buzz, im not looking for a buzz, just relief .pain meds have to be used properly . if you take too much they quit working  bc your body stops producing  its own pain relief .so, I usually  take it 3 days and then don't  take it for 3 days, then repeat. you can't keep  druggies from getting  high,so stop punishing  us bc they're  stupid .

Typical government who knows nothing about nothing. All they care about is saving money and the groups who pressure them. The government knows nothing except what they pay someone to tell them. There is no doubt a drug problem. But it is not from the pain killers. It is people who are already addicted from their own bad choices in life. They choose, just like everything else they do in life, to be irresponsible with the medication prescribed to them. I have had two back surgeries. My doctor manages my pain through medications. I have been on them for over three years. Not a single time have he ever prescribed me more than was necessary. I am responsible and manage them the way they should be. I am at the point where I cannot work or function without them because my back and joints hurt. And I am suppose to stop having relief from chronic pain because of some junkies, the government, and special interest groups? I work in health care. It comes down to personal responsibility, and doctors who manage care, not prescribe and push away. So sick of good people being blamed and have to suffer because of the dead beat entitled piece of trash who live in society looking for their next high. These people come in already addicted before they get pain killers. The government is too stupid to understand that.

Every month when I try to get my pain medications filled I’m treated like I’m a fuckin criminal because of my age. I remember all that “we will never forget” bullshit that everyone used to say. Well guess what America !!! What about the retired and sick civilians as well as members of service who respond and did their jobs that day trying to help and protect the lives of everyone impacted by the actions that took place that horrible day. ???that without their daily opioid medications they are confined to a wheelchair at age 46 because it’s too painful to ambulate without them??? Fuck then right??? They’ll be dead soon anyway right??? It’s ok just admit it!!! We already know the answer anyway. Thanks a lot to everyone who believes in this bullshit “opioid epidemic” y’all took it so far that sick people get to spend the last years of their lives in agony and confined to their house.

8.5 million people die worldwide as a direct result of ciggarettes,over 300 billion dollars is spent on illnesses due to ciggarettes alone each year in the U.S and alcohol is not far behind at 249 billion dollars per year with well over a million deaths per year in the U.S , world wide the cost is over a trillion usd and roughly 10 million deaths between these 2 drugs yet we must get rid of opiates, WTF??? the old men making these laws must not be getting big enough kick backs by big pharma , there can be no other reason, the number of deaths and overdoses per year due to legal opiates is miniscule compared to that of ciggarettes and alcohol. If the Government said they were going to limit or ban ciggarettes and alcohol all hell would break loose, we already know what happened during prohibition , add ciggarettes to that and Americans would overthrow the government. Take my pain meds away and I'm heading to my nearest heroin dealer because without them I would have no quality of life, I was a fire fighter medic for Detroit and suffered many injuries including a gun shot wound to the face and I'm a head and neck cancer survivor, I can't get out of bed without taking my pain meds and like most chronic pain patients I don't abuse my meds because if I did then I would run out early and have to suffer until I could get a refill, take away pain meds for those of us who have severe chronic pain and you take away our lives.

How much is a cup of coffee?

I know the feeling sometimes the pain is so bad you can’t get your pain medication and you really think that you’re better off dead i’m not a depressed person I have a great life other than the pain physical therapy steroids medical procedures surgeries I will do anything and everything to stop the pain but the only thing that really works his pain medication I don’t take a lot of it only when my pain gets really bad but I have a hard time getting from my doctor now and have actually considered the possibility of using illegal drugs when the government is telling your doctor how to give medication that’s the beginning of something very scary. I would suggest trying marijuana and CBD you may have some good results it has help me for sleeping and even a little bit with the pain

Wow back in the day drs were giving this stuff out like candy. I was able to get 100 10-325 norcos for 10 dollars. I didn't even have pain, I just got them to get high. Now they're so hard to get. Good thing I quit cold-turkey 2 years ago. Opiates are hard to get off of. 2 years clean and I still crave that high.

This is just cruel... For anyone in this situation, look into kratom. It won't do much if you're opioid tolerance is high, however it's safe, cheap, and legal (until the crooked as DEA bans it that is...). I hope you find some relief.

Fuck the addicts and recreational users, some of us need these drugs to function on a fairly normal basis! I'm disabled from a motorcycle accident where I was hit by a reckless driver & I've been in chronic pain for years, now that the government gotten involved, I've got to pay the price for recreational users and the addicts abusing these drugs! Fuck the government & as far as the recreational users and addicts go, let them die! They've made my life a living hell by abusing these drugs! They're either highly restricted or unavailable to obtain, now that they're somewhat unobtainable I'm housebound and spend most of my time lying in bed from chronic pain and immobility and barely existing....

I bet the sons of bitches who are making it almost if not impossible for people with a genuine need for pain meds have no problem at all getting their scripts filled. it's one of those, Do as I say and not as I do bullshit lines. and if you are fortunate enough to get your scripts filled you probably had to go through a crucible of sorts such as the judgemental look the people in the pharmacy give you like your an addict. Hey call me what you will as long as I'm able to still work and have somewhat a productive life doing thing's with my family I love to do and they love to see their daddy do as well. I understand that there is certain people who abuse medications but if I'm not doing anything wrong why judge me right along with those who are abusing.
