  1. Before you print your comments you ought to at least think a bit.

    For those of us with chronic pain from disease we need some of these drugs to stay alive.


  2. My dog takes Tramadol for pain. It’s a frequent flier above as well. Some doctors may prescribe it to humans, not sure. Curious. As for pain killers, I don’t think it’s a fair conclusion to state “get help” simply because one is on them. The really curious one is second from the top, the blood pressure and anti-depressant combination. Too bad.


  3. No, you shouldn’t have assumed and subsequently made a judgemental declaration. Happens to the best of us. No one is arguing about the scourge, just the paintbrush used in identifying those who need help.
