Take the danged narcotics.

This is a load of BS. Heroin = Bad, Oxycontin = Good. The only things that makes Oxy "good" are the facts that it is made by a legitimized drug company from synthetic substances to EXACTLY mimic the effects of Heroin.

Nothing inherently wrong with either drug. Heroin would be fine, as long as its purity is assured and the patients can get enough of it as tolerance builds. Don't think for one minute you can't develop tolerance/addiction problems with ANY synthetic opiate. Better to be a FUNCTIONING addict than debilitated by pain.

I never abused pain pills. I only took them when I was in a lot of pain, so I never got addicted to them. I prefer to use them after I have surgery or an accident. Doctors don't like to write prescriptions for narcotics because they are afraid they will get in trouble with the feds. It's really not worth the hassle. I can get relief from taking aspirin, so I'll just stick to them for pain. I have a very high tolerance level to pain so I'll be OK.:o)

Absolutely. If you have a legitimate need, take the meds that work. Frankly, narcotics compare favorably to any NSAID, IMO, when taken as prescribed. Unfortunately, much pain goes untreated, undertreated, or treated with more dangerous and less effective medications because of the failed WOD and professional fear of the DEA.
