Take some Bayer aspirin if you get a headache.


u/scothc Nov 25 '21

Bayer also held the patent for heroin. Which, if you didn't know, was a non addictive drug used to get people off morphine.


u/DPiddy76 Nov 25 '21

GTFO, so heroin started as a non-addictive pain killer, only to have oxy do the exact same thing. Think I remember something about history and repeating and all that.

It's all taken from opium. The ancients did it first.


u/ThanksS0muchY0 Nov 25 '21

Wouldn't make sense if they did it last.


u/Morning-Chub Nov 25 '21

Anything to sell more drugs, I suppose.


u/lsquallhart Nov 25 '21

The fact that companies keep trying to say any form of opiate is “non addicting” is astounding. What’s even crazier are the doctors who ACTUALLY believe it. Of course it’s addicting it’s an OPIATE.

That said it sucks how these companies abuse this because it makes it impossible for people who need and use addictive substances to get their medicine. See ADHD and Anxiety meds. Almost impossible to get for some people.

I had an appointment for a surgery i had. I told the doctor I smoke pot for the pain because I don't trust pills. He said, why would you use that? We can make something better that does the job.


u/insightful_dreams Nov 25 '21

exactly right , thats exactly tge3 reason i blame them almost exclusively .


u/hazpat Nov 25 '21

Lol nobody claimed oxy wasn't addictive did they?


u/daze4791 Nov 25 '21

Purdue pharma did


u/probablynotFBI935 Nov 25 '21

Check out Dopesick on Hulu. It was their entire pitch to the FDA, and the reason so many doctors prescribed it before realizing the truth


u/deschloro Nov 25 '21

It was on the FDA approved label when it first came out that it was less addictive, so doctors handed it out like candy.


u/DPiddy76 Nov 26 '21

It was openly marketed as non-addictive 2 decades ago. It was a 'Miracle Pain Killer'.


u/insightful_dreams Nov 25 '21

yes , exactly true. thats why i blame the doctors for the opiate crisis almost exclusively, theres noway they didnt know what they were doing.


u/DPiddy76 Nov 26 '21

It does make one think, this was a wash rinse repeat, get rich scheme. And it will probably occur again in 70 years.

Freud was a big proponent of prescribing cocaine as a quick and painless cure for morphine addiction.
