tramadol,pregabalin and methadone
on 400 tramadol and 600 pregabalin and 35 mg of methadone and some valium and clonazepam 5 mg,lorasepam 4mg a day...i can reduce down some of it,but the one that made me do it more is valium!
10:29 Percocet, one of your honorable mentions, is the same thing as OxyContin, your final pick. Rather, it has the same active ingredient (oxycodone). Although, Percocet does have some acetaminophen in it for synergy. I noticed several other mistakes throughout the video. It's good to see media calling attention to commonly abused prescription drugs, but next time do a little more research. The last thing the public needs to see is a sensationalized, clickbait-y list where codeine is ranked more abused than fentanyl.
The sad and fucked up shit about this is (and I swear on my beautiful baby daughter who passed). I was a nyc firefighter with fdny from 1993-2013. I respond to the whole wtc collapse barely got away with my life, never in my life did I run so fast but I had absolutely no choice but to dive under an abandoned nyc public bus with an injured civilian I was carrying. The tower collapsed and the bus gets smashed with debris. I guess my adrenaline took over because I didn’t feel a thing. I finished carrying my patient to a new triage area and attempted to run up church st to the one standing north tower climbing over debris but was blocked off. Anyway I worked from that morning 24hrs on 24hrs off till January walking around with this pain in my hip that turned out to be a hairline fracture from the collapse that I didn’t know about. They went in and attended to I guess break and re aligned it. But when I was a child I suffered from a broken bone condition called “Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis” in both legs with I was a child requiring 4 surgeries each a year apart.
Ok fast forward to around 2007. Having trouble climbing stairs. Constant pain that I kept to myself because I loved my job. My limp didn’t effect my running or work. But by December 2008 the pain was so intense in both my hips it was like a burning ache and co workers there are closer to you then family. I was referred to BHS bureau of health services (fdny doctors). I was told I would never work on an engine anymore. I was offered 3/4 pension retirement by 3 man board but I pretty much begged them for a reasonable accommodation position. So I became an instructor at the academy till I hit my 20 years then I took my 3/4 pension disability retirement. Two things I omitted from my testimony.
1) I suffer from severe ptsd and survivors guilt and was placed on Klonopin .5 right around January 2002
2) I was given Percocet 5-325 to be taken as needed for pain after my attempt to repair my wtc collapse hip injury that they just made worse. But I wasn’t allowed to work within 8 hours of taking a dose which is reasonable right? Yea.
Ok one more fast forward to 2018. Retired on a pension that I earned. I did my full 20 years. I went to work in agony some days and just suppressed it. Till it started showing. Now I have issues with my lungs unstable asthma from all that shit from the air at ground zero so total hip replacement is out of the question. My current mri and X-rays convince my orthopedist that I will be confided to a wonderful wheelchair within the next 5 years because the pain of walking will be overwhelming for me.
Now currently I take
Percent 10-325 1 every 6 hours and it’s the only thing that allows me to ambulate and gives me any quality of life. I am in no way addicted to any euphoria. Trust me when I tell u that feeling went away years ago. I’ve been on the same dose since 2013. I’ve never failed a drug test. I don’t drink alcohol. I don’t sell my pills or any of that bullshit.
Now I also said I was placed on Klonopin. That dose is now at 2mg every 12 hours. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel guilt because I made a split second selfish decision to save myself rather then stay and try to help. I had good men crying to me that were unable to walk that they didn’t wanna die. They had babies they wanted to see again. I have to live with that guilt and I’ll go to my grave with that guilt and with guilt comes the physical (not omg I’m freaking out) I mean real physical symptoms like chest pain, can’t breathe , heart bounding out of my chest. Everytime I see an airplane that 2nd plane smashing into the south tower plays in my head.
Now I see a pain management physician (not a pill mill) that is always in communication with my orthopedic physician as well as my psychiatrist. Everyone is on the same page and they all know I take both these medications everyday. And they also know that I’m not an idiot and I know not to take them both at the same time. But yet ever since this whole opioid epidemic which is total bullshit because they can pull all this crap ola with DEA and all new laws and waste a ton of money on all these great projects that look great on paper but you’re not gunna put a dent in the overdoses or illegal opioid users. Stop fuckin with the actual responsible person with legitimate well documented pain and demons that haunt him all day long that are connected to a work related injury/condition from a government employee that retired with honors and was never disciplined in the 20 years of my employment with fdny.
Every month I take both scripts to CVS (assigned Pharmacy by my pain management. I don’t have a choice in pharmacy’s unless they are out of stock). Both these medications get flagged and now I have to go without pain medications and anxiety medications until the pharmacy makes contact with both prescribing physicians to confirm that they both know that I’m taking both medications. And it’s the same pharmacist 90% of the time. They all know me but still they put me through this red tape shit. Sometimes I go for days without pain medicine and just stay confined to bed. Does anyone understand how humiliating it is to need your wife to help you to the bathroom at only 46 years old.
People please stop protesting and buying into this opioid and prescription medication epidemic nonsense. You are really hurting very sick responsible people that are in a great deal of pain and are out of other treatment options because they won’t survive necessary surgery to repair the condition causing the intensive pain.
I really didn’t wanna share this because it puts me in a horrible mental place. But I’m speaking out for everyone who is in legitimate pain and has to jump through all this red tape to get the only medications that give them back their lives.
RIP to everyone who passed on 9/11/01 and everyone who has passed from wtc related illnesses. My heart goes out to the families. This is why I closed my Facebook account because everytime I logged in another friend co worker had passed away. Rip God only takes the very best. He needed y’all. I’ll never forget y’all.
Fentanyl was the ONLY medication that allowed me to live a more normal existence with less pain. Since my previous pain management doctor stopped prescribing it, I've been in terrible pain every day and I can't do the things I used to do. It makes me so mad that people who don't need it are abusing it, making it almost impossible to be prescribed for severe chronic pain patients like myself and now a lot of us are suffering in excruciating pain because of it.
Alprazolam is a life saver I am alive and watching this video only because of alprazolam. Taking since 10 years 1 mg per day and continues . No side effects. In fact benefits that I have not gone for blood pressure, diabetes pills like others. All disease come from anxiety, depression.yeah this drug is addictive. But it is also life saver for many people. Don't use this drug if you don't have any psychtrits disorder.People must have awareness that alprazolam is not sleeping pills. It's working in brain which cause sleepiness. It is used for many brain disorder like panic anxiety attacks, social phobia, epilepsy, tremors, numbness, jerking, nervousness, fear.80% medicines cause sleepiness for example even tablets of cold, flue,pain killer etc cause sleepiness .human body made of different chemicals. so in case of any issue related to chemical disorder in brain or in other organs of body you must have to insert chemical balancing drug in your body. like if you have thyroid u take direct thyroid hormones tablet.our liver and kidney are most powerful organs to detoxify any toxic chemical in body.
I know this shit is messing it up for people who have serious medical problems and Bone diseases that are so painful you have to learn how to take it responsibly yes and it's addictive medication in your body is going to be addicted to it but you can let your mind be addicted people need to learn is seriously affecting people like myself who suffer everyday

I started having panic attacks at age 26, I'm now 56. Those were the worst things a person could go thru. My first shrink in 86 put me on Haldol. Oh my God, that was horrible. I was on different medications until 1994 when I got on klonopin. That pill is a miracle drug. I don't have to take it everyday anymore but I always carry it with me in my purse just in case. I do take other meds for depression and they also help but nothing like klonopin. Because I hear it can contribute to Alzheimer's I try not to take it daily. That's all I need ontop of my other mental problems. I would advise anyone to take klonopin for major panic attacks but try not to take a lot of it for long periods. Maybe in conjunction with something else u can take less. I bought it here https://drugstoresale24hss.com/klonopin Maybe it helpes somebody)
I've used all of theses before. All while drinking alcohol.
I'm so, lucky to be here now.
I love you more than any thing for letting folks know how dangerous these little guys really are.
Go to church.
HERE IS PROBABLY THE WORST LEGAL DRUG OF THEM ALL:. SUBOXONE!!!! ITS PROBABLY THE WORST DRUG EVER!!! PEOPLE USE IT TO GET OFF OPIODS, WHEN IN FACT, YOU CAN GET JUST AS HIGH WITH SUBOXONE AS YOU DO WITH HEROIN. AS A MATTER OF FACT, A LOT OF HEROIN ADDICTS USE IT ON AND OFF, SINCE, IT KEEPS THEM FROM GETTING TERRIBLY ILL FROM HEROIN WITHDRAWAL. NOW, IF YOU ARE ON AN OPIOD SUCH AS HEROIN, YOU WILL DETOX IN A FEW DAYS OF FEELING LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO DIE,. NOW, SUBOXONE IS EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE AND IT TAKES YEARS TO ACTUALLY GET IT COMPLETELY OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM AND THE WITHDRAWAL IS ALSO PRETTY HORRIBLE. ITS THE LEGAL, EXPENSIVE HEROIN. I SORT OF FORCED A FRIEND TO GET ON SUBOXONE AND AFTER SEEING WHAT IT ACTUALLY DOES, I CONVINCED MY FRIEND TO GET OFF THAT DRUG ASAP. DONT FALL INTO THAT TRAP!! YOU WILL REGRET IT?!
I've been on all but 2.....I use 75 mil patches of Fentanyl every 3 days....It works good but you don't get a buzz...I also take Percocet for break thru pain.... they cut out all of my large intestine from Chrons Disease so the pills with the en coating go right thru me...no I don't pick them out and eat them again.... Percocet was my drug of choice but after 20 years they stopped working so good....I've been on this shit for 29 years and no end in sight....it's not fun anymore.....
Fentanyl should be number 1,2,and 3. Fentanyl has killed alot of people latley. Diladud is not used as an alternative to heroin. The diladid pills are junk and peoole shot dilaidid and it last very short. The alternatives to heroin are opana and fentanyl now. Since oxycontins are no longer snortable. Im just being honest.
Honestly more powerful for an opioid does not mean more euphoric. Most addicts find that IV use of morphine to be just as good as IV heroin. Fentanyl for instance while being stronger it is less enjoyable it doesn't last near as long when injected are snorted an tends to be all nod less enjoyment.
PHuck It! Of people wish to kill themselves on the script drugs, Let Them! I can careless what other people do with their lives. It does not effect me one bit. "You can't help someone that does not want to be helped".
Some of you may think I am out of line, & even an Arse hole for saying that? But it's true! Just like when people say, "I was an addict". Nooo! Your still an addict, You may have kicked your drug habit. But your still & always will be an addict. Once An Addict, Always An Addict. Thus is the reason when doctors try to prescribe certain pain killers for me. I tell them Hell No! I'll deal with the pain myself.
This is motherfucking bullshit. I have literally a fucked up lower back. The MRI proved it. I can barely lay down. My doctor would probably tell me to get lost if I asked for some pain meds. In this day and age. I'm a fuckin champion. Once my back heals I will still be a fuckin warrior from going through this shit. Fuck.
and the dea has totally failed billions wasted lives ruined. gov forcing dr to drop patients sending them to street drugs and tainted with fynantol . people need to be kept with doctors . prison is for the pushers . dea another case of doing the same thing over and over and getting the same result is insane gov needs to listen to addiction experts
I also crashed my car when on Ambien. I can’t even recall the incident. I told my psychologist to take me off it and she put me on Trazodone. Unfortunately, that left me with incontinence while sleeping.
You guys are stupid. Dilaudid is rarely ever prescribed. Soma isn’t prescribed much at all either. Xanax? You mean Lexapro? Cause thats what it was replaced by since 2013. The most abused drug is hydrocodone. Its the most prescribed, even to people who don’t need it. Those people that dont need it either take it themselves or sell it on the streets.
This person obviously never got high, nice image of tuinal, something unseen for several decades, unless you visit grandma and find that script in her junk draw from 1966 soma sucks, valium is like speed for me. I was lucky to stumble upon amytal, and seconal, fifty fifty makes tuinal, which is the drug to do. At nearly 70 years old, wprkd like yesterday. Next time try to find images of actual drugs
Umm.. you guys know that oxycodone is percocet? So I would have to say I don't fully agree with your list. You put 2 of the same drugs on your list (just one was an honorable mention). Thought you guys did your research.
The government put most of them in scheduled 2 category which is now almost impossible to get even legally. Coincidently, Fentanyl suddenly shows up. Something tells me they wants to kill us faster than before instead of curing us.
I don’t think anyone abuses Zoloft I have a prescription and honestly it does nothing for me . But adderall, adderall is like a miracle worker except after I take it I usually get really sad for some reason and I usually feel like shit after but the immediate effects are fucking insane I have a prescription for 10mg I barely use recreationally but when I do I have to take like 120 mg
The difference between an addict and a patient is a piece of stinking paper. I thank God I can tolerate my pain, but it’s obvious there is a problem with pain in the USA. Internal and external. We handle this issue in a most greedy, selective, coercive way possible.
Fucking Morons!!!!! Oxycontin & Oxycodone are 2 Different Types of Opiates!!!!! Get Your Facts Right.
And Oxykitten is the Worse of Em All!!! LoL!!
But Honestly Godbless to All That Have Died Doing Any Of These Drugs. GODBLESS EM ALL!!!!!
WHERE'S THE WORSE DRUG THAT KILLS MORE PEOPLE THAN ANY OTHER DRUG ON THIS LIST & YOU DON'T NEED AN PRESCRIPTION FOR IT. JUST AN ID, BE 21 & OVER AND U CAN BUY IT FROM YOUR CORNER STORE. WHERE THE REAL #1 DRUG MOJO? FUCKING ALCOHOL!!!!! NUMBER 1 KILLER!!!!!
