Wow! addict a nation to the most addictive and potent form of Heroin around, I was on it for 3 years and when I quit because I knew it was effecting my mind, I became very withdrawn and stubborn. Going off of it alone while having a divorce after 30 years together.. well I ended up in Mental Health several times, I went off cold turkey and lived on 3 hours sleep every third day for months.. sleepless, grieving and in agony from my pain.. . its been 2+ years now and I am healing and have learned to keep my pain minimised by suffering without much physical activity.. or fun... or work.. or life.. lol.. I was truly in a state of dementia for months.. I fear for any one who might have to suffer what I did. The callous nature of Mental Health was sickening. Personally I think its a double edge sword and whether you crush them, free base them, inject.. whatever.. just taking them as prescribed are equally ADDICTIVE! and extremely painful to quit if you've been on them for a good while. I feel your pain if you get denied! The word withdrawal was never heard from any of my Doctors.. they don't think about it.

I would just like to say that if you are a legit chronic pain sufferer then there will be a medication prescribed that will do tue same as before. There is no way the patients would be made to suffer needlessly by our government as they know that a very serious class-action lawsuit would happen if chronic pain sufferers were not given there medications. If you are using a oxycontin type medication then we all will continue to recieve a very similar type of opiate for chronic pain. There is no way the pharma companies are going to stop producing oxy as it is a major money maker for them. If you are a legit patient that has been on it for a long time then you will be taken care of im very sure. If not then I will be the first to start the lawsuit!!! The problem is with the abusers who just want to get high and they will suffer the real pain. Be at ease, we will be ok. :,)

It took me so long to finally find doctors who actully listened to me and saved my life by taking a 7 pound tumor out of my body, i realize alot of people abuse these drugs but they are just going to resort to herion or other drugs and in higher amounts... they have to come up with a better stratgy because like the prevous stated the only people who are truly going to suffer are the ones who have already been suffering for almost there whole life... this is so depressing 1 bad bunch sinks the whole bloody ship....

This is total BS. Deb Mathews, the Ontario Minister of Health, who btw has absolutely no medical background or experience, is most likely behind this. Obviously Purdue has been pressured by someone as there is no way they would do this on their own. It's already been shown that the new formulation that has been available in the US for a while now doesn't treat pain as well. Although the same drug, Oxycontin, is involved there appears to be some issue with the reformulation that is most likely due to the polymer that has been bonded to the medication that causes the new drug to be less effective at treating chronic pain. @Sure Buddy, you obviously do not suffer from chronic debilitating pain as some of us do or you wouldn't have made that callous post. Do some research and you will find that the issue I described is widely talked about. Not to mention that in the states they are using BPA as the agent to bond with the drug. Thankfully BPA is banned in Canada but who know what Purdue is using here if they are willing to use a toxic agent in the USA.

Well, either you didn't comprehend the article or you are not using the drug for pain as you suggest. My guess is both.
