  1. The only pain med that I’ve used at home is Hydrocodone with Tylenol– and then I only take a half of a pill once in a while — as that seems to help– I try to only use Tylenol — I would hate to be addicted to opiods –it’s hard to understand why people get so dependent!

  2. I sometimes think that the government in its zest to prevent addictions end up causing unnecessary suffering to those people that are really in need of some type of pain killer. One example would be stopping a terminal cancer patient from getting the proper medications for their pain because they will ‘become addicted’.
