I think they say all that crap to try to keep it from being legalized. I think marijuana is safer than all the prescription drugs doctors get people hooked on. I have smoked for 16 years and have never had any kind of psychological problems. If anything it helped my anxiety and depression and helped me deal with stress a lot easier. I believe there is nothing wrong with smoking marijuana in moderation.View Thread
Hi I am 35 and I am addicted to Tramadol. My doctor prescribed it to me because I have scoliosis in my neck and am in constant pain. I asked for Darvocet because they had worked for me in the past but he stated he didn't want to prescribe me something I would get addicted to. Nice call Doc because now I am terribly addicted to Tramadol. I have told him this and he still states that it is not addictive. So why do I get terrible withdrawal symptoms like I am dying if I go 12 hours without taking 3 50 mg pills? I believe this drug should not be marketed as non addictive because it is very addictive and I have read that it is harder than heroin to get off of. I think there should be a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of everyone who had been told it wasn't addictive and then got addicted. The bad part is I am still in pain so all it really did for me is get me addicted. I don't know what to do now because withdrawal is so bad I never want to go through it. My doctor wants me to stay on these for the rest of my life he stated this because my neck cannot be fixed. Does anyone know if Tramadol can damage your liver or kidneys? I have been on it for almost 3 years now and I worry about that.View Thread
