They prescribe the stuff for anything now. I've gone to the doctor for a minor knee injury I was really just looking for an xray or mri to see if anything was torn. I walked fine basically it was interfering with my workout routine. They asked if I wanted a prescription for Oxy. I said NO, I almost asked if they got a commission for prescribing it.I had my appendix out in my 50's and my stomach was one large bruise and I was in quite a bit of pain whenever I moved for a couple of weeks. I was only give the usual over the counter painkillers mind you so not sure why they gave him something that strong.
