What are "controlled meds?"
Or if you shouldn't answer that are you from California?
edit on 1/22/2013 by Dustytoad because: (no reason given)
They are the narcotic based drugs like morphine sulfate and hydrocodone found in Lortab and Vicoden tablets. In Georgia I can only have one
prescription per month filled and both the Georgia and Federal DEA require that the doctor administer a urine test periodically to prove that i am not
abusing my prescription or taking other drugs.
There are other prescription drugs that also fall under the controlled substance label but the main ones are the narcotic based ones.

It makes sense though.. My opinions about helpful drugs withstanding, t&c, I have personal experience..
After surgery after the Army (I am missing bone in my head), I was in a LOT of pain.
I got addicted to pain meds.Legally... It was too easy for me to call the doctor, and even just the hospital to get more and get stronger pills.. This
only lasted about a month, and it only barely covered the pain, but I was still in pain most of the time..
I don't truly know where I stand on this.. I couldn't even function, move at all in that pain, but I also couldn't function on a 30 milligram
Oxycodone.. Not being someone who does anything illegal, I suffered through withdrawal.. My doctor didn't warn me.. I asked the doctor, should I
follow the exact dosage instructions or should I try to modify to my situation, but he wouldn't answer...
Glad that only lasted a month on the reality changing prescribed drugs. Glad withdrawal was only about 10 days..
Why is relieving pain so addictive? That's half kidding and half serious.. I don't want an answer, but it's good to think about.
Be careful guys.
