Whose Fault Is the Opioid Crisis?
PJ Media, by Michael Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 2/10/2018 1:50:39 PM

The world we now live in: "Purdue Pharmaceuticals, the maker of the opioid painkiller OxyContin, said it would no longer actively market opioid products — a major about-face for a company increasingly viewed as a principal culprit in the country’s addiction and overdose crisis. (Snip) It´s hard not to notice the consistency with which the new Leftist meme that no one is every responsible for anything that cannot be blamed on someone else. Allegations, questions, and fact-free accusations are now enough to determine the course of public policy. There´s a kind of evil genius to it, really. State lawsuits against Purdue have

Comments:
So the products made from the opium poppy and from its chemical relatives (opioids) are just too good, and some who get a bit want a boot or twelve. Or twelve thousand. Thus, the big attorney advertisers, rich from having maintained that no one among their clients knew that cigarettes were addictive, line up to claim their portion of the booty from "Big Pharma." Swine.

No one forces people to take the pills. However, during the 90’s medical training at the demand of CMS began teaching that pain was a 5th vital sign and failure to diagnose and treat pain to the satisfaction of the patient could lead to poor CMS scores and sanctioning.

As usual, the government got involved in something and made it worse.

Look up Eric Holder´s connection to Oxy in the 90"s.

I know too may young people who accidentally got hooked on this crap due to sports injuries. Their parents didn´t know or weren´t advised of the dangers. Not a big fan of government regulation, but in this case, it is LONG overdue.

Purdue Pharma should be run out of business and a 7 day limit to Oxy is probably still too much.

Lucianner Jntsrgn is correct. The Federal Government would bring its full wrath down on health care facilities and physicians that did not "adequately" treat pain. The Feds brought this on. They are still doing it since Medicare reimbursement can be cut if the patient isn´t "satisfied" with their care. There are few patients more dissatisfied than narcotic seekers who are denied a script for opoids...

My primary doctor suddenly went on a leave of absence. I am sure there is far more to the story. I have been having a nightmare finding a new primary doctor. I lose a low dose of vicond. I am prescribed 2 pills every 6 hours. I usually never us that amount. The first primary doctor I saw said if you think I´m going to prescribe vicodin for you, go have surgery. The second doctor said I only prescribe vicodin for cancer patients. The third, in her notes after prescribing a lesser amount, made note I found about when I saw a physical therapy doctor. He said she thinks I have an opiate problem. I´d like to slap her silly. The physical therapy doctor looked at the MRI scans and prescribed the vicodin. The fools that mess with opitaes and are dead in not my fault.

A large part of the problem is public ignorance about various drugs.
Just look at how many people believe pot is harmless.
The same holds for addiction. One of the withdrawal symptoms of opioids is pain, and nothing else will relieve the pain. This causes the person to think they are taking the drug to relieve pain when actually they are taking it because they are addicted.
The pain of withdrawal is severe enough that people will go to extreme measures top prevent it, like risking their life with black market items peddled as opiates.
I feel for the people trapped in addiction, I hear it in the voices of posters above.
The road out is hard, and you very likely didn´t intend to be where you are.

I can kind of sympathize to a degree. Some years ago I had to get emergency surgery because of an unfortunate accident. They had IV pain killers going into me for about 24 hours after. I didnt feel buzzed or loopy or anything like that. What I did feel was all the aches and pains of old age gone. They come on gradually and we learn to live with them, but then one day they are gone and you feel 20 again?
I haven´t touched a pain killer since then. It scares the hell out of me that I might stop feeling as old as I am supposed to.

ultimately the problem is one of extremes. Doctors begin giving out pain killers too easily, then the government cracks down. So doctors are reluctant to give out pain killers, then the government cracks down the other way.

6 years ago, I had major shoulder surgery. Took Vicodin for 3 months, did PT and thankfully recovered and never felt the urge for more painkillers. But I remember that awful pain and I never minimize how folks who live with chronic pain must feel. It wears you down and out. They need pain relief. That must not be discounted.

Oxycontin was developed for cancer patients - it delivered the medication on a time release basis, which eliminated peaks a valleys of pain.
Junkies quickly figured out that they could crush the tablets, snort the stuff, and get a really big high.
Most pain patients are not junkies. They have damaged bodies. Pain is real. Pain is debilitating.
What we are going through right now is insane. Public policy driven by anecdote is not a good way to operate.

Don´t forget The Joint Commission (formerly known as JCAHO -- Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) making "Pain" the 5th vital sign. One must really dig deep to find a graph showing the number of prescriptions for pain relievers before 2001. As you can expect, doctors treated pain with --- Pain Relievers. It just basic physiology. Those with a susceptibility to addiction are at risk for addiction, and it has happened. Meanwhile, patients who function very capably on adequate doses of opioid narcotics are left hurting when adequate treatment is prohibited.

I was on heavy doses of opioids for several month over an infection on my spine. The dosage was increased for a spell to control seizures I started getting. Once they subsided I went back to just managing pain.

I was stoned. No pain, no worries.I had to taper, but 2 years hence I have no desire for it. I still have pain but I can tolerate it with naproxen and tylenol.

There is nothing like a clear head and restored instincts and drives. I thank God for giving it to me.

I´m at a loss as to why anyone would voluntarily ice their own spirit.But all that being said, Opium is a blessing. It is cruel and criminal to deny it to the ones who need it because somebody misuses it.

I´m pretty sure it´s not opiates that´s the problem.

I need to comment on a post above. If you take an opiate product, as I do, Vicodin, it´s wise to use Miralax or a generic. Opiates, in use by most people, will become constipated.

TAMPA — For more than two months, the parents of the man police say committed four murders in Seminole Heights have refused to talk to prosecutors building a case against their son. Today, a judge could decide if that loyalty will land them in jail. Howell Donaldson Jr. and Rosita Donaldson are scheduled to appear this morning before Circuit Judge Mark Wolfe in a civil contempt hearing. If they continue to refuse to talk to prosecutors, they could face sanctions, including fines or possible jail time. The judge could even order them jailed until they cooperate, said Ralph Fernandez, an attorney whose firm represents

As Steve said this morning, it is pretty much pointless to comment on mass shooting events before the facts are known. But that hasn’t stopped liberals from going into full hysteria mode, as they always do. And perhaps the dust has settled enough to allow some preliminary observations. Here are mine: 1. The facts, to the extent they have been reported, are very weird. The murderer, Nikolas Cruz, packed up a semiautomatic rifle, a gas mask and plenty of ammunition and took an Uber to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Apparently the Uber driver saw nothing amiss. Cruz shot some people

Seat 5 incumbent Hoyt Hamilton answered in code. "I’m willing to work with anybody, but they have to be open and honest in how they communicate and we haven’t always had that, so I think one of the biggest problems trying to move Clearwater forward is getting people to communicate openly and honestly with what we’re trying to do."

The death by airstrike of a large number of Russian "mercenary troops" allegedly attacking a US backed position in Syria is reminder that hybrid/proxy/low-intensity conflict is not without risk. The New York Times described the scale of the incident. "Aleksandr Ionov, a Russian businessman working in Syria offering security and other services ... estimated after conversations with associates in several private military organizations that more than 200 Russians might have been killed. ... not all those killed were Russian: Some of the paid fighters came from other countries that were once part of the Soviet Union."

But, in a brilliant column, Byron York reviews the sequence of events as we have tortuously come to know them. Based on what we now know (or think we know), it is highly doubtful whether Flynn did anything wrong at all. It is a given that there was nothing wrong with Flynn’s talking to the Russian ambassador, or discussing sanctions with him. As the

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar
