Yes, the drug has helped many people. But it has killed a lot of people and many thousands are addicted and cannot get out. There is a thriving market for oxy’s out there on the street. And the withdrawals are a bitch.

Since OxyContin was introduced in 1996, Canada has recorded the second-highest number of prescription opioid painkiller addictions and the world’s second-highest death rate from overdoses. In the US, narcotic overdose deaths now surpass deaths from murders and fatal car accidents.

The Tiny Time-Released Time Bomb

As soon as it was released, Purdue Pharma hailed OxyContin as its new “miracle pill” for pain sufferers. Drug company representatives told physicians and patients OxyContin was safer than other narcotics because it was time-released, so there was essentially no potential for abuse—but nothing could’ve been farther from the truth.

  • i’d dare to say each one of us has a loved one affected by this terribly addictive and destructive drug.

  • Almost anything used and abused can destroy, even sugar, salt, bet if you ate two much watermelon, you might even have severe complications. I have suffered with pain for over 30 years, and have been on this drug and many others, while I did not care for Oxy, I have found some quite beneficial to allowing me to at least function and get through the day. I have yet to find one that will completely relieve all of my pain and allow me to have a great day, up to and including another drug that is in some peoples opinion worst then Oxy, and that is the fentanyl patch, which I was on. I have taken myself off of Oxy and the fentanyl patch without complications, have been on one pain reliever for the past 15 years without complications as the above. The thing is, I have real pain, and I have never abused any of them. Most of the people and I am not saying all have problems because they contribute to the situation.

  • Anonynous, I agree with you. I’ve been on Oxi for about 8 years now, and I’m not addicted by it because I don’t mis-use it. I don’t even get a “buzz” from it, but it does help with my pain.

    I believe medications can affect different people in different ways depending on the reason they’re taking it.
