Here's something that climbs my frame.
A guy in town was arrested for drug trafficking. He was getting 100 lots of Oxycontin and selling them for $70 each. The paper said that he sold to undercover cops over the last year. His source was a doctor in the Boston area. They both went down in flames.
This torques me on several levels. First of all, I couldn't get hydrocodone
ahead of time and I was getting only 26 pills at a time last January. The pharmacy would not fill that piddly prescription till the day before it was due, even if was inconvenient for me. I would have enough to get me to Saturday, but you need a written script (narcotics cannot be refilled), and they won't fill them until it's needed........it was a pain in the ass. Jeff had to keep running to the doctor for a written script every 3-4 days.
How does this guy get them by the hundreds
and get a pharmacy to fill it??
The second thing that inflames me is that I was told last year that I was on 'The most medication I can get at home.' I was just told this again just 10 days ago when I let my pain get ahead of me and I had stronger pills than last year.
Oxycontin 10 mg is 'The Most Pain Medication You Can Get At Home.' This is what I was told. Is that right, doc?
How come the guy who was arrested was getting Oxycontin 80 mg
How is it that I can have my damn leg torn apart, the bone drilled and a metal bar ripped out of it, but I can't access to even an Oxycontin 20 mg tablet
? What do I have to do.......be near deaths DOOR before I get something that actually works for pain?
What did this guy say he had that he got hundreds of 80 mg tablets? What malady do you need to get those? Decapitation? I'm just disgusted with this system.
