ooh, that sux. I see a lot of ppl go in 4 it & some get addicted, but that's only If they ABUSE IT. taking one more b/c the pain is still there, then 2 doesn't work anymore so they take 3... that's why there are pharmacists and doctors... (I wrk in a pharmacy)

Her mom was being paranoid about her getting addicted to painkillers. There isn't necessarily a reason for her mom to not let her take them bedsides that she's paranoid. She doesn't deserve it. the reason she thinks that her daughter will become addicted is because there are warnings that state that people tend to become addicted to them.

Yes, guys, I realize OP commented on here. OP commented after I made my first statement. My explanation, which I said after OP commented, was to explain why I said what I said. Thanks, I'm not blind.


24: Is there a family history of addiction? If not, maybe she's just seen too many of those "your medicine cabinet is your kid's favorite drug dealer" commercials. Either way, FYL. Sorry dude; pain can be a monster.


89: I wrote a long response, but it poofed. I'll just recap and say I agree that there are a lot of misconceptions out there, but I've got to attach a caveat. The prescribed user who does get addicted (not common, but it happens) tend to be people who use them for short-term, or acute, pain. Long-term, or chronic, pain survivors are much less likely to abuse opiates. The APA estimates a mere 2-9% of chronic pain survivors get addicted. They can't afford to go without them, and just want to live normal lives. Addicts seek to escape normality for whatever reason, and that's easier to do with opiates as you heal and your pain decreases. This is ignoring the subjects of physical dependency and pseudo-addiction, though.

Well OP at least you aren't going to end up like me..... turns out I was allergic to the pain killers. Instead of a speedy recovery, mine was extended.

my sister has had a couple of knee surgeries and every time she got vicodin. she claims that she never abused them but she really wanted to because it gave her a bliss feeling. so that makes your mom kinda right.

on the other hand, I broke my leg and got oxy that was much much stronger (compound fracture) and I had no feeling of addiction at all.

I think it entirely depends on the person tbh. but if you just got wisdom teeth pulled, the painkillers they use are pretty tame and addiction would seem quite rare.

I'm going to say FYL on this one...
(sorry long post-don't flame, typed on iPod so there are bound to be typos). :D

you dont need them anyway. i got mine pulled and the only time i took one was right after i got out of the surgery. a few hours later i was walking around the house, then workin 2days later


223: I don't know about that particular one, but I know Tramadol is an opiate-free class 2 (or maybe 3) painkiller. It's supposed to be nonaddictive, but abusers can still get mentally hooked.

230: All meds affect people differently. I've taken both of the ones you mentioned, and Vicodin made me feel much more "high" than Oxy. Vicodin's a quicker-acting drug, which is why it's given for breakthrough pain. Oxy is generally an extended-release drug, which is why abusers chop it up.

232: HEY MASSDEBATER! :D I've been around, but less so b/c I've been feeling better and not stuck in bed so much. I gave up trying to catch up on the missed ones.

I still got all my pain mess from when I got my four out last month but it's not all that bad if u do what the doctor tells u to do. I didn't and it sucked more than actual surgery
