More negative news on opioids

Postby 2BassetMom » Sun Feb 11, 2018 10:57 pm

I just read 2 negative articles on the Fox News Website. One claimed that the maker of Oxycontin will stop supplying it to doctors and the other claiming that Kratom is an opioid and should be treated as such. I am so tired of seeing these articles with no feedback from sources that have patients who use these drugs responsibly. I'm glad the Restless Legs Syndrome Foundation is working to present the other side of opioid use. I just had to have a mini rant :-x

Totally hear you. I'm on that med! I'd verify it with other sources though; I have some questions about that source's integrity.
