    RobertClaybaught I wish I would have never started them either.It all started when I got a job at whitecastel and I was an alcoholic for about 30 years . But now with this job I had to work 4 different shifts and I couldn't handle the hangovers.I started getting xanax to help my anxiety .Then being the oldest person there at45 my back was killing me from all the heavy stuff I had to lift. My docter gave me Vicodin at first then it just stopped working so my docter gave me oxicodone 15mg. Then I got wellbutran for depression and seriguil for sleep.I would like to get off of some of these but I do have savere back pain. And my xanax I ran out of once I got seziors.That w as awfull.I really don't know how much longer I can live like this.

    Robrert Claybaugh I totally understand. I have been takin mine ever since about 2011. I took advantage of my healthcare because of my new job at whitecastel.I was in so much pain from having to lift very heavy-duty items. I was an alcoholic for 35 years and when I took the job at whitecastel I quit drinking. My trainer for the job my manager could tell my pain so she started giving me Vicodin..But when I whet too the docter a second time I got 2mgxanax. 300mg wellbutran 15 mg ox[/ g

    The blame game, there is no good excuse to do HEROIN. Stop pretending you weren't aware of the consequences. Gotta love how what started with your illegal diverting of drugs you want to equate it as equal. Cut me a break. It's your fault! No ones else's. Cry baby junkies.

  7. Dejuh Vuh

    Oh god that dirty makeup box…..I’m sorry, that was just extremely unhygienic lol lazy/ corrupt doctors and big pharma is the issue. But That girl is full of shit. More than hell you took more than what was prescribed on that bottle to overdose. Put the blame on YOU too.

  9. Nikia Sublett

    I was prescribed opiates when I had kidney stones removed and I also had tried opiates before that. for some reason I just didn't get addicted. it wasn't that exciting and they did nothing but made me nauseous, and vomit. I just didn't really enjoy the way they made me fill over all. The farthest I'll go is marijuana. it's never let me down

    AA and NA meetings are the only thing that can help you with an addiction. I am not a fan of President Trump (I don't really like him nor dislike him) but many Americans enjoyed his reading of the poem, "The snake." If you choose to go to a detox facility that doesn't mandate each client go to NA and AA meetings, facilities whose only true goal is to keep the beds full,. I personally would rather rather approach a king cobra. At least the snake I could gather for food and get something I can actually later use.

That was the last time I seen him.My heart ackes.

    There are a few substances out there that can help you get through the withdrawals of not just opiates, but alcohol, speed, and even NICOTINE.
    I know of Kratom and what it does; yes it does work for combating withdrawals, and slightly elevating your mood. I know a handful of peeps that used it to get through opiate withdrawals.

    I took some while I was in the middle of withdrawals from Percocet 10/325 mg
    that started out as a script for my back the Army put me on. ( I have degenerative disc disease)
    I had been steadily getting 90 of these monthly for about 2 years; then when I got out in 2013 and came back to Missouri, the VA stopped my regular prescription with no weaning period at all–COLD TURKEY. It was horrible. The Kratom did help me, but I ended up going back to any opiates I could find except Heroin. It is now 2018 and I quit everything from pain pills to cigarettes.
    I don't drink at all ever too.

    Lysergic Acid Diethlymide or LSD When taken correctly and for the right amount of time not only eliminates withdrawals 100% from opiates but it also does the same for alcohol and nicotine. Totally reversed my depression and ptsd as well. It is not harmful despite what the government has been preaching since they found out in the late 60s about the effects of it and what it does to the population at Large. When LSD therapy is done correctly it resets our brain, it resets those addictions to zero. Before I took it I was depressed, had PTSD, suffered from various addictions, and after a week of taking it under the correct setting I was cured of all these addictions. My depression was completely cured and reversed. I haven't had one depressing thought since my week of therapy. The government will never allow it to flow freely throughout the country or make it legal because it would destroy the pharmaceutical companies.. people would no longer have to go to a psychiatrist and get psychiatric medications that aren't needed such as Prozac Effexor Zoloft Etc. It does work it is effective and more people need to wake up and realize the benefits from it

    why doesnt anybody ever show and discuss the percentage of addicts working jn the medical field ??? There are so many practicing physicians, nurses, surgeons, er doctors, etc. That while they are treating you, they are high on non prescribed opiates most of which they are stealing from the facility in which they are working, and even scarier, they often times are taking the in-patients scheduled meds. Why doesnt anybody research and report to the public this epidemic??? And it is and has been an epidemic for a very long time. I cannot count the number of dictors, nurses, etc. That i have seen n they were high as a kite. Think about that the next time you are going in for surgery. The media has reported on every aspect of prescription pills, big pharma, the amounts of pills prescribed/used year by year, the opiate epidemic, addictions, junkies, the average age groups that have become addicted, the number of overdoses/ and those ending in death, etc. But i have not seen one single mention of the extremely high amount of the ones writing our prescriptions, or those nurses who treat us in hospitals/family practices, those performing surgegy on us, etc. Lets get the statistics on this issue. I have researched it as well as been married to a doctor. You want a real eye opener?? Prepare to be scared and very weary of those who are/will be caring for you if u find yourself staying in a hospital, nursing home, having surgery, and those who come into ur home to help care for you. About time we hear about those who think they are gods n decide who lives n who dies…..

    Drugs are witchcraft. Look up #G5331 Pharmakeia it means Sorcery, poisoning, Idolatry, seduction. When we take a mix of poisonous chemicals to alter the mind or the natural body's chemistry that is witchcraft. Witchcraft is the work of demons for what ever their target mission is. All the side horrible effects, suicides, violent acts, mental depletion and nervous system damage is caused by demons in the mind or body. Demons Job is to deceive people into taking drugs, vaccines, addiction so they can gain entry and destroy people. And when people try to get clean the demons throw a fit and make it hell on them. The bible talks about in the last days how the Merchants/Big Pharma will decieve the nations with their sorcery=(greek) Pharmakeia/pharmacy. It only been about 70 years that all these terrible medications and illegal drugs have been conjured up. If you are on drugs like Psych meds, or meds for your nervous system or you have a condition where you cant control your thoughts, emotions or body, Seek DELIVERANCE PRAYER from a reputable Deliverance & Healing center. Humble Yourself 100% to God, turn from Sin and seek Deliverance and have thes trespassers evicted in Jesus Name. You wont be cured over night because it all depends on you, God sees everything. I know I was Delivered from some serious issues.

  33. Andrew Yost

    It saddens me to have so many people dying from these types of medications. 10 years ago I broke my back in 5 places falling down a hill, chasing kids who broke our windshield's with rock and causing an accident. I know there are people out there abusing it. If had offers from street kids to adults who want to take the edge off, to pay top dollar or more, when they overhear the conversation with the Pharmacist. I've never, in 10 years, had to worry about several factors with these drugs. However, with the crackdown on misuse, abuse, and the epidemic we are in, I cannot get my Primary Care Physician or Chronic Pain Physician's to even write these for fear of the authorities. I also have suffered through 5 major strokes and a heart attack over the last 10 years. I've also been diagnosed with Parkinson Disease and I am only 46. My very first stroke took a large chunk of memory, basically going back to the age of 18 and this has never returned. I read journals to try to remember my past, but I can't remember even after reading it or seeing a video clip. The State and my Neurologist have taken away my driving rights and proceeding strokes took my left side usage so I have zero feeling in my left arm and leg, making it extremely difficult to walk. Two years ago I was sent to a physical rehabilitation home to learn to walk but I wasn't getting better. I fought the insurance companies and they don't care. I now have to go out in public, seemingly looking fine, and use a wheelchair. The strokes have essentially caused me to lose a huge amount of memories and has caused a rift in my family. I will never be able to walk long distances again and as the disease progression, I will eventually end up in a powered wheelchair, trying to remember my past. Just this week I was informed that the Dr and insurance will not prescribe Ambien to help my brain shut down. It's maddening at times and sometimes I am up for days, with a small power nap here or there. Without the medication, My body will kill itself. With the medications, I will improve my quality of life to less than 10 years. I am mandatorily made to go to each personal Dr's office to get a refill once a month. Now they want to stop giving me anything for fear of family backlash. My quality of life sucks and I've missed football/volleyball games and just recently my daughters High School Graduation as they didn't want me to be the center of attention and I get that. 2012 ended the year in a physical rehab home from stroke-related incidents. I now have to prove with a urine test, blood test, and hair and throat samples before they will touch me on a level of understanding. It's degrading and makes you feel unaccomplished and worthless. I now have to fight for my medicine referrals and jump through hoops and cut the red tape just to get a 30 day supply and the DEA and ATF have done a random check up on my medications use, storage, and why I need them. I feel like a freaking criminal. Because I was cooperative and had a paper trail, the DEA would give a courtesy call before coming. The ATF scoured our home looking for weapons that I may use to hurt myself or a family member. Again, no evidence found and yet again I was made to feel like a criminal. Not all stories are like mine but those who have abused, used or stolen illegally (mine are in a locked bolted to the ground fireproof safe) are making my efforts to enjoy life to some degree. Primary Care Physician will no longer fill my Ambien, even though I have paperwork to back up the reasoning and how it has helped me have a better quality of life. They also will not prescribe my anxiety medicine because I was considered a high-risk patient. They are now trying new drugs and taken me completely off of it, withdrawals followed and managed but turns out I had a severe allergic reaction to the new medicines. I've been dealing with a chronic pain specialist for over 5 years to fine tune everything, but they too give me the tiniest amount they can get away with. They also have taken me down to the lowest amount possible in milligrams and that has done nothing but extend the pain more and I am no longer able to do certain things myself, like showering, cooking, going outside for a roll around the block. I am spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally trapped in a broken body that gets worse all the time. Here's my final kicker, I have applied and been denied 6 times now for disability benefits. So if you play by the rules, you get in increased trouble. If you decide to buy street level drugs, cut with God only knows what, you can receive Federal and State health benefits. In 10 years I've never abused any of my drugs nor shared them with any other family members but I am the bad guy here. Pretty fouled up and punishes the righteous. Thank for reading, it's long and I don't get out often. Feel free to comment, There's a good chance I'll read any comments. Just don't get on and negatively berate me. Be an adult and share kindnes. I don't need that negative toxicity in my life.

    All I heard from this is its the doctors responsibility, no its not! The gov has no place in the medical field looming over who and shouldn't get their prescriptions. Leave the doctors (who are only doing their job with they have a patient in pain) alone!
