Dear Elizabeth:

I couldn't agree with you more. Worldwide Drug Prohibition is Terrorism at its worst.
Don't get me started.
The Founding Fathers are boiling in their graves. Our Democracy is a flimsy facade. Vote for President? Does it matter when all candidates are corporate shills anyway?
Jefferson demanded "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness". That dream is officially dead in the USA.

Yes, absolutely, the worldwide drug prohibition is the cause of worldwide drug problems. Strict distribution of Pharmaceutically pure drugs, sold at a sensible price, works. And works well: As Drug price's go down, The black market goes away. Criminal empires lose major funding. jails empty. Police catch criminals. Drug Corruption
goes away, etc, etc. The whole house of cards crumbles. This makes too much sense. It's too easy.

Drug Prohibition gives our government the right to operate 'Secret Police' organizations in the name of 'drug control'. And we do it on an international basis. We can send guns and money to any country we want, as long as its under the guise of 'The War on Drug's'.

I'm sorry. I go on and on and on. It is such an outrage!

I took hydrocodone for a couple years, pretty much everyday. Then Oxycontin became available, and I began using that. It was cheap and strong. And pure: No acetaminophen to poison the body.
After the DEA figured out it was being diverted from Mexico, they put a stop to it. So now I'm taking Hydrocodone again. The Norco is 10/325, so the paracetamol content is low.

Since I self-medicate, I work the edges of the system. I get the Hydro from willing OP's after a short Dr. consult. Its filled by their own pharmacy, and dropped off by UPS.

Yes, I am dependent. Severe short coming of opioids. Tolerance is annoying. And when you run out, by choice or not, withdrawals are bad. I have gone through withdrawals 5 or 6 times. But is just no good. After WD's comes that horrible phase of severe depression, dysphoria and general malaise. Getting out of bed to do anything, say wash the dishes, feels like you are being asked to run the Boston Marathon! And the simple act of taking a little opioid or two makes you feel like the King of the world again. Well, you can imagine what happens: I start medicating again.

When I first tried the Bup (to help with WD agony) the sublingual tabs didnt work for me. Then I read somewhere that you had to hold them under your tongue for 10 minutes. Voila!
I was surprised how well they worked. Now, I usually take 0.4mg (two 0.2mg). In an hour or so, I begin to feel the effects, or should I say, 'Normal'. Lasts 6 - 7 hours at least.
I read that when Bup is given IV to Heroin addicts, they think it's Heroin. I also read that some people crush up the Sublingual tabs, and snort them!

I have taken Prozac, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Zoloft, Paxil, and a few others. After a few days of side effects, I then feel nothing. Weeks and Months of no real effect. However, when I take an Opioid, I feel better within an hour!

What a joke! Oh, but Opioids are addictive. Damn right. Anything that makes you feel good, you will continue doing. Has anyone ever stolen Effexor from a Pharmacy?

Hope I answered your questions.

-Cisco
