I am a person who has battled with addiction my whole life. At age 32 now I'm now getting a handle on the situation a little bit at a time. I very often think back to the begining when so much could have been done differently. Not only by myself but the Dr.who had no problem writing me continous scripts percocets after I had all my wisdom teeth removed. After the initial bottle I was prescribed I was given another at the post op chech up a week later. Regardless of my communicating that I was comfortable I went home with a new bottle 2 more times. It was put as " why not be 100% comfortable while your healing and working such a physical job"? Now dont get me wrong I also blame myself because I didnt have to take them but If for a moment I was uncomfortable why not if they are there? It should be cleary mentioned and more ppl educated that it takes only a couple weeks for the body/brain to develop a dependency to an opiate and for someone with an addictive personality this can change your life in a bad way.

Hello, Gary! How are you? I am very sorry about what you've been through.

Not everyone develops a dependence that fast, it can vary from person to person.

And such over prescribing has been a factor in all of the changes that have been made to the prescribing regulations over the past few years.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

How are you dealing with it, now?
