If you've ever had the pain of a massive migraine, you want relief. It disrupts everyday functioning. I take Excedrin Migraine and it actually works really well. The times I need help with auras and nausea surrounding migraines, I take generic Imitrex. I'm pretty happy with my choices, but if I need a stronger drug, I want my doctor to prescribe it for me. I imagine greed makes these drug companies convince doctors that their patients need these opioid painkillers. I give doctors, and pharmacists, especially, credit for alerting their patients to side effects of opioids. I've NEVER gotten pain relief again like I got when I had wisdom teeth pulled. I didn't get addicted. There are probably other factors in why that never happened.
It seems like everyone is just sue happy nowadays, sue them, or them.......
Like the UC davis girl that got hot coffee on her from in and out burger.
I hope this lawsuit fails as well as the the coffee one. But we know how the judges operate, so that probably will not happen.
Like the above commentor said, the manufactures give everyone enough information about the drawbacks to meds. People need their meds. and all this will do is to increase the price we pay for these meds if this lawsuit wins.
When drug companies are dependent to stock holders, its only natural that they may under-represent dangers if they can get away with it. It seems to be a fairly regular thing.
Cannabis is a proven and effective alternative to many of the potent prescription medications we take; medications that have so many documented body harming side effects, and I assume a few undocumented.
I was lucky enough to have an open minded family doctor(a real one, not one from the back of The Metro)who brought it up to me. The new to me methods of vaporizing and a vast assortment of edibles available removed the worry I had about smoking it. I just wish other cities were not getting the tx revenue. I'd like to shop local and have the taxes go to MV, but that's a different topic.
