As I was watching one of my favorite shows, I witnessed a slam about people on Vicodin. In short, a person was prescribed Vicodin for a back injury. He was prescribed 120 pills at a time. He had 2 empty bottles which had been prescribed over THE PAST YEAR. It was relayed that how could any person take THAT much Vicodin??? I sat there and glared at the TV - along with my daughter. I take Vicodin on a daily basis for my FM pain, and my doc prescribes 120 pills at a time. That lasts me about 20/25 days. Anyway - I dont think it negatively protrayed prescription narcotics when used correctly on TV. I get so sick of this. Whats wrong with being in chronic pain and using the medication AS PRESCRIBED??? People who dont have chronic pain dont know what its like. They can say all they want - nothing else has worked for me.
