I think its a terrible idea.Of course it works! Purely due to the side effects of opiates.They are also addictive, and side effects include death. You also run the risk of tolerance to it.You are playing a dangerous game!

No one is saying do not ever seek any treatment, or everything else is harmless, really.Just it usually isn't wise to start with something really dangerous. I do think a few people have really given everything else a really solid try and actually do understand the risks and will stop the narcotics the second they do more harm than good. Unfortunately a lot of people are too hooked to be able to stop when they should.Pretending there are not real risk to this course of action isn't fair. Sure everything has risks but few people get really angry about anything else when risks are listed. No one seems to want to say people are lying when they say antispasmodics can cause dry mouth. But everyone who says narcotics can be addictive or cause problems is a bad person and get attacked for it more often than not.I can't believe I'm a bad person because I think people should try the less risky things first and leave the really risky things as a last resort and go in with their eyes open to ALL the risks and know how to recognize when they start doing long term harm even with short term gain.Oh well, if that is what being bad is, I guess I'm bad. :(Hopefully "taking things into their own hands" does not include getting narcotics behind your doctor's back. It is dangerous enough if your doctor prescribes them and has you on a strict monitoring program. Getting the drugs from the black market where you don't have a doctor and a registered pharmacist involved is extremely risky no matter which drug you get. If they don't need a prescription to fill your order you can't be sure what you are getting.

Illness is not something to feel ashamed of. It is not a sign of misfortune or defeat. Suffering is the fuel of wisdom, and it opens the way to happiness. Through illness, human beings can gain insight into the meaning of life, understand its value and dignity, and strive to lead more fulfilling lives. ~ Daisaku Ikeda
In life, it's not the bad things we do that hurt us, it's the good things we don't do. ~ Shmuley Boteach

I wasn't sure what exactly you meant by it is good when people take matters into their own hands.I am for patients being empowered, but that doesn't mean they should demand their doctors must give them something or find some other way to get it. Especially when discussing something addictive (and really most addicts start with low doses that anyone would guess is safe) and something that is typically sold in those spam emails where you need no prescription to get whatever you want.I do not see how you can see my opinion as OK and Nikki's as unacceptable if we are basically saying the exact same thing.Even if you start at a low dose it is a medication that humans build tolerance to and that is part of the problem. No one starts out at the doses you need to be hospitalized to safely stop. Well other than people in the burn unit or other severe traumas, but they don't send you home until you are past the point of needing large amounts of narcotics and your wean down is monitored.I usually avoid these threads as someone always seems to need to tell people that you can't say they are dangerous and suggests more people need to be demanding a last resort treatment as it just can't cause the problems that people warn about. I think I need to go back to that even though I got back in because we had much better information about Narcotic Bowel Syndrome, especially how to tell if you are one of the people prone to that.
