We’ve decided to stop promoting oxy... because we have a new oxy.
They said the same thing about Oxy and heroin and morphine before that. Same song.....
So what you're saying is that no big pharma will produce it
Great, now I need to buy 4 times as much to get high and consciously sustain my addiction? Thanks obama
Wow, how convenient for the pharmaceutical industries. It’s almost a miracle. Now we can just keep doing things the way they like doing them! Amazing. That is just so fantastic. Is there no limits to the awesome. It’s just keep prescribing opioids. Now all our problems are solved. It truly is a miracle. Praise Jesus.
Maybe slightly off topic, but how often are people resistant or unresponsive to opioids? Especially without any drug use. Morphine didn't do anything for me at 12 and still doesn't at 30, and absolutely none of the prescription opioid painkillers have ever even made me drowsy. The only answers I've ever got relate to drug users, but again, I have never used or abused anything so that is not applicable to my situation.
It's really annoying how any articles of this nature are clogged with conspiracy theorists saying things along ths lines of "the man has a cancer cure, but they make more money by keeping it secret" or other dumb shit.
Does anybody else see this as a method of encouraging more use of opioids because they can make it "less addictive"?
Suddenly found a way to do that, interesting. Wonder if it has anything to do with marijuana being more effective and less dangerous? Wonder how long that would have taken to discover without the threat of a newer, better, natural painkilling alternative that wasn't threatening to take away big pharma profits. Or how about this, why not develop a drug that isn't derived from opium? Better yet, why not embrace the marijuana industry and develop cannabis based meds? I'm in favor of capitalism, but the history of it shows that corporations with a long standing hold on the market would rather stifle new developments in technology and science just to make a buck. End rant.
I don't really believe that it will be non-addictive. People seem to have this bizarre idea that these drugs have two separate effects on people:
- They eliminate pain
- They are addictive
And that if you just get rid of #2 you have a perfect drug. What no one seems to want to admit is that there's really only one effect:
- They eliminate pain
But that this effect is addictive for people who suffer from chronic, untreated, physical or mental anguish and pain
Interesting but I doubt gene knock outs will be an effective treatment in people.
It would interesting thought if an inhibitor drug could be developed, especially if this could mediate and existing addiction.
My professor at Rutgers University Dr. Sidney Auerbach worked on similar research. Check out his journal articles if the science side of this interests you.
Sadly, a rodent is not a little white furred human being.
This is hugely distant from being confirmed as well as shown to be safe/effective in humans.
Count this as "not likely".
Now if only we can do the same for meth so I can make it through uni
Fuck this shit, we just started getting people off opioids and into marijuana now u wanna find a reason to go back?!
Does anybody else find it weird how they made a cartoon to illustrate the research?
Big pharma had to find a way to keep its rising profit share on the opioid monopoly. They're losing profits to black market Fentenyl in the junky market and to marijuana in alternative medicine markets. I'm wondering who sponsored the research at mount Sinai and how quickly we'll see changes to opioid medications.
So that the only thing that rewards people is ads food and sex?
a little bit of hyperbole since opioid use tends to take away form what we call life, but the point still stands.
So the industry which made huge piles of cash and a drug epidemic in America, which they lobby hard to avoid paying fuck all for.
Now has a new drug (well the same old drug) but better!
Now with less side effects; because we lobbied and made this such a joke we could make the pills 2% smaller and call them "less addictive."
Troubling shit for the kids ahead.
... so, they've never spoken with even one recovered addict? Never paid attention to what's going on with saboxone clinics? It's the WITHDRAWAL that promotes opioid addiction in the long-term, or more specifically behaviors to avoid the withdrawal.
There is no such thing as a non-addictive opioid pain killer. The mechanism that kills pain is the mechanism that causes addiction.
If you're flooding your mu-opioid receptors your brain will decrease endogenous production, which will lead to withdraw.
Bayer said THE EXACT SAME THING when they created heroin. It was the non-addictive morphine substitute. OxyContin was the non-addictive heroin. Around and around we go. Like it or not it just doesn't work like that.
The only thing they've successfully created are more potent analogues, ever more seductive for abuse.
yea its called weed. Weed is the chemical you are looking for here, can use lower doses, isn't addictive at all.
I prescribe weed to you good patient.
They need to start making Kratom based painkiller medication. It has the ability to be effective at lower doeses (known as the "less is more" in Kratom circles) and it's much, much less addictive than an opiate.
Is the dose for an overdose still the same? And how does it mutate the reward mechanism so you don't become addicted?
I really hope I'm not the first one to voice a hardy, "Fuck THAT!"
What a bloody coincidence. It makes me deeply and ragingly angry that this manipulative BS takes place just to gouge profits from people's misery.
The problem is, they'll decrease dosages. Rather than just make their current dosage more effective and less addictive, they'll take away some of people's medications.
My mother's pain meds already barely work. She doesn't get high from them and higher dosages knock her out which she hates.
So in one way this is good. But I know companies will just use it to screw people over.
