opiod crisis

Posted by rjlockhart37 on February 24, 2020, at 22:58:30

there's alot of people hooked on pain meds, i mean its not like a bad, society is medicated, and when these opiods are taken away, i've seen in rehabs, they are miserable.

But wide spread, long time ago in the early 1900s, and also in the civil war. That is when morphine was first discovered to be addiction. Civil war soldiers frequently asked for more morphine, and actually....this has happened before, in the 1800s early 1900s, there was a opion crisis, but it wasnt like prescption like hydrocoddone, or oxycodone, it was first main ones - back then such as morphine, heroin, opium.

I read in early medical research, doctors were aware of opiod addiction back then, and they knew when people asked for it, it was ana addiction. They came out with barbiturates, and they barbiturates early on, to treat opiate craving or a substitute for it. But barbiturates, they didnt know how dangerous they were, there more dangerous than opiates. Kicking a barbiturate habit, if it was like amobarbital - came out in 1923, they used it... they had names for them, blue heavens, and if you suddenly stop them you would have seizures and all types of bad things, they used them for substitute for morphine addiction.

So, i think today, people are on, take them only mild pain, and they become a required intake, too many people. They only alternative i read is suboxone, and buprenorphine. They even advertise buprenorphine on commercials in US. It's less potent, very mild opiate, to substitute. But, im not trying to convey anyways, but i've seen people who are taken off opioid medication, they become depressed, and miserable, when i was in rehab i saw it.

Once the opiate receptors have started in the brain, and become frequently hit, that's causes addiction. And not having that feeling makes you depressed. But more than that, benzos are another thing, frequently prescribed for anxiety, wide spread prescribing of them is common. So, i don't know to say, the term an over medicated society, or dependence issue, i've felt the misery of being taken off medications that i vitally needed. Rehab doctors are always propaganda against them, exaggerate it., but then you go out and see other psychiatrists and pain management they give them like candy. I'm not sure what to describe whats going on, a feel good society, and they compliant to doctors to keep taking opiates or benzos. I don't know how this effects of is bad on society, its not like the epidemic back in 1800, early 1900s where they begged doctors to give them morphine, heroin was actually used as a medication, many people got strung out badly due to those high potency ones. Also fentanyl, is a thing, its 100 times the potency of strong benzo, but i think that's more of a illegal drug, rather than a common prescribed medication.

Does anyone, what do you yall think about a society that's hooked on opiates? it's not like the early 1900s, where it was terrible and people stung out so badly, why doctors made sure it was not prescribed.

anyone? just give a quick thought, anything doesn't have to relate to this post....
