Single mom with 2 jobs. . .

I have a strong family history of clinical depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, and so forth so have seen my share of pills in the family medicine cabinet.  Personally I've been prescribed numerous types of anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications for fibromyalgia and symptoms of MS (though not confirmed).  I wound up on this site when attempting to determine whether or not a pill I had was a Xanax or a rip-off.  Unfortunately, I think the latter was the case.

student/waiter/bartender/airline exec.

I am a 22 year old student who is working towarda degree in Business management hopefully to end up working in airline management. I want to try and fix what remains of the U.S. domestic aviation market or at least change things for the better. I am a waiter/bartender at PF Changs China Bistro at night.

A year or so ago I severely injured my back and ribs and have been using narcotic and Rx anti inflammitory pain medicines, as well as benzodiazepines for muscle relaxants. Makes is difficult to bartend and wait tables but I have to make money and get through school somehow. I can't let chronic pain fomr some kinda pinhed nerve hold me back from my passions. Which include pills. I , like Kirby, think of each pill as a work of art and am fascinated by the mystery of what each different could size, shape, color, etc. could be? Unlike Kirby, I am also interested in the pharmaceutical makeup of pills. I've been told by the many friends and acquaintences who I have ID'd pills for and given basic pharmaceutical information that I need to pursue my pharmacy degree as I'd make an excellent pharmacist.Who knows, maybe someday. So in short, I'm interested as a patient and as a interest/hobby.

I'm a body builder/football player and i go here to id pills that have been lost by various people. I wonder if MD's realize how many teenagers abuse the painkillers that they prescribe i see it first hand constantly just like today in gym a kid took 11 adderol and could hardly walk so he sat down the whole class period now i know that my friends dads doctor just throws painkillers at him and i personally think he gets hurt on purpose hes been hurt on the job 6 times the lastest was 2 weeks ago he dropped a log on his leg and he get prescribed oxycodone and then he sold it within days of getting it and i know how bad this sounds but i seen my mom selling my dads medicine one day and i even told the social services social worker and she just blew me off like it didn't matter well anyway i know i typed to much so ill stop even though i could keep on going on  and on but anyway my name is charles and i'm a bodybuilder so thats me anyway bye.

hello.......

Prego huh?????LOL

Well I got a kick out of that.Well Basically we are a group of people who have a range of M.S (such as myself) that are not looking for sympathy but for knowledge and intellegent conversation.We can bounce thoughts feelings,ideas off one another.

We can also identify alot of the pills people come across.We aren't Dr. by any means just alot of people either on medicine or am very close to someone who is.

I am freshly 30 and will look it soon.I have an 11yr gaughter and 2 yr son!!!!!!!Yes I know it took my husband that long to convince me,

 

I will hope to hear from you soon.

BBS

I know this doesn't pertain to pharm's but man I remember BBS's.  They have faded to the internet.  It was the internet befor the internet. My first modem was 300 baud. I am only 32 but have been using computers since the commodore vic 20 and the Radio Shack Model III with a 10 meg.  yea meg. HD.  LOL. I am intrigued by Pharm.  and if used as prescribed are wonderful like alot of other things in life if abused can and do have a very dark side as well. Thanks for letting me share.

super dangerous

You are correct, that esp. all those amphetamine salts and in that dosage could a cause life threatning situation esp. if never exposed to the substance and don't understand what effect the drug has on the CV system.  Not to mention what it does to stimulate various parts of the brain and has a VERY high pontential for abuse.  I guess thats why it is a controled substance #2.  Like with any prescribed drug be careful and use only as prescribed. Thanks.
