The people on this board are trying to get help with their pain, not diminish it!!!!! Oxycontin is one of the very FEW pain pills that actually helps with the pain when nothing else does! It is totally unfair that some "druggies" mis-use it and don't have pain, therefore trying to ruin it for people who do have pain and GENUINELY NEED IT!
No, I am not on Oxycontin simply because I can't tolerate meds especially pain meds and throw them up! I do wish I could though and will defend anyone who needs them for bad pain!! I did take it last year for 3 months after several very major surgeries and I did not have any problem going off of them or while on them.....they actually worked! Without them I would have been bed-fast.
Thank-you Sir for your concern, but I really don't think we need you to cripple us any more than we already are!! People with bad pains need some relief in order to live with a little bit of dignity and normalcy in their lives, especially when there is no cure or anything else to do to help them!
It is quite funny though because I myself have contacted lawyers in the past for "legitimate" problems and they never did help me always helped the ones in the wrong instead!
"SMILE............It confuses people!"
