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.

Asha Rangappa, a former FBI agent, argues that the FBI didn’t spy on the Trump campaign (or use an informant, as she delicately puts it) to go after Donald Trump. Rather, it did so to protect him. Rangappa argues that the FBI should have investigated alleged Russian infiltration of the Trump campaign aggressively and directly, given the gravity of this threat. However, she continues, it elected to investigate quietly through an informant in order to avoid casting public suspicion on the campaign and to thereby avoid injuring Trump. It’s a creative argument but there are a few problems. First, it assumes, in

The Freud Fraud

It´s still Sigmund Freud´s world. The rest of us are imprisoned in it. The whole intellectual apparatus behind political correctness, micro-aggression theory, totalitarian campus speech codes, the #metoo obsession with sexual mistreatment--all of it begins with Freud. Frederick Crews´ new book Freud: The Making of an Illusion shreds the reputation of the founder of psychoanalysis. It´s a detective story worthy of the ages and a terrific read, but more importantly, it´s a corrective to reigning liberal ideology. You can´t understand liberalism unless you know Freud, and you can´t appreciate what a tissue of lies and half-truths

The Inspector General´s Report Will

One of the more notable differences between Watergate and the metastasizing scandals involving the FBI, our intelligence agencies, and the Obama administration -- subjects of the soon-to-be-released inspector general´s report -- is that the media exposed Watergate. They aided and abetted the current transgressions. By providing a willing and virtually unquestioned repository for every anonymous leaker (as long as he or she was on the "right" side) in Washington and beyond, the press has evolved from being part of the solution to being a major part of the problem. Gone are the days of the true "whistle-blower."

Another deadly school shooting

A student at Santa Fe High School in Texas killed ten people today and wounded ten more, according to reports. The attacker used two guns — a shotgun and a .38 revolver. Both were owned legally by his father, according to the same reports. One of the wounded was a retired police officer hired by the school as a “resources officer.” He confronted the killer, who shot him. Another resources officer also engaged the killer. This occurred early on and is thought to have limited the bloodshed. I believe armed school personnel are the key to ending the rash of school shootings because their ability to thwart shooters will deter these losers from

When I talk to Trump-haters, invariably the first thing they cite against him is his tweets. And, in truth, they have sometimes been impolitic. But on the whole, I think Twitter has helped him. This Associated Press news story illustrates why. "President Donald Trump’s attorney said Friday the special counsel in the Russia probe has narrowed the scope of potential questions for the president, even as Trump advanced an unverified theory that the Justice Department planted a spy in his 2016 campaign…" It comes from the New York Times, so, yeah, it’s unverified.

It is only through ignorance or suppression of the truth that anyone can believe in the leftist worldview, a kind of bad morality play that would be merely amusing were it not so influential. Of this feminism is a representative example. Motivated by status envy, which is a reflection of human nature’s difficult need for esteem, feminists have a perverse conception of history. It never seems to occur to them that men no more chose their greater physical strength and, yes, greater ability to engage in abstract thought at the highest level than women chose to be mothers, with all the grueling burdens that accompany that fate.

How to tell whether a

There are a number of ways. Here’s one: If people living in the country want to be on a government’s enemies list, the government is not authoritarian. No one within the jurisdiction of an authoritarian government wants to be on its enemies list. Being on such a list isn’t healthy. One can easily end up in jail, go missing, or even be assassinated. Under non-authoritarian governments, being on an enemies list can be a source of status. It enables one to preen — to virtue-signal — without paying a price. Richard Nixon had an enemies list. Washington liberals wanted to be on it. Prominent liberals not on the list were peeved.

Attorney Joe diGenova predicted that both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions´ days are numbered at the Department of Justice during a telephone interview with Newsmax´s Howie Carr Wednesday. DiGenova´s claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation". The report has been interpreted by many as an attempt by sources within the "Deep State" to cushion the blow of the imminent DOJ inspector general report, which is expected to be explosive.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the
