Most of us are aware that plenty of addictive medications are prescribed by physicians each and every day. Ask anyone who has been treated for something as simple as 'stress', 'anxiety', depression or hyperactivity what they are taking, let alone people with major neck and back injuries. Yes, you are truly ignorant.
Where is your proof that despite the addictive qualities of OxyContin, Rush's doctor prescribed him the addictive drug ad infinitum... just to make Rush feel good?
Don't get confused by the language that says "Addicted To Prescription Pain-Killers" to actually mean that the medication was actually "prescribed" throughout and for every period of the addiction. The use of the term "prescription pain-killers" is just a way to classify the drugs and not necessarily indicative of the means by which these drugs are ascertained from start to finish...
My link with Vicky's story should help you. I see you are smart enought to find support for your claims.
Stating that doctor prescribe potentially addictive medicines is no revelation Sherlocke! Read my link... Those type of drugs... as with most everything, used in moderation - i.e. over very short periods of time can be very effective. However, as Kevin has suggested (not to mention my own personal experience with any prescribed medicines that remotely had addictive qualities) those types of medications aren't given out long term, year-after-year by any professional worth their salt.
I've never encountered an instance where I was prescribed any such medication that either didn't have it on the label and wasn't meticulously specified by doctor, nurse, pharmacy, etc. that the drug involved was/is addictive and only to be taken for short periods and one's that had either NO REFILLS or very limited ones.
YOU ARE IGNORANT BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SUPPORT the full extent of your claims. Rush is more than likely like Vicky...
END OF STORY!!
(You have NO proof...)
