If i could

I would not...I like my meds storebought and made in the U.S.

Also this site is not a "hook-up" drug board..And believe me I have been asked many times for drugs even though I have the mod icon...Sealed take care.

I think

Hey Goat,

Addict180 was merely asking for a photo from the poster of the bensedine which was you, and not an actual hook up.  I think you just missunderstood the question.

If you got them from a pharmacy there should be no concern about their authenticity....if you acquired them illegitimately I would suggest finding another place to check out your pills. Most posters on this site are pretty bitter about illegal prescription drug accusation.

Yeah...

and I'm one of em'. This whole thread is an "online pharmacy" NO PRESCRIPTION NEEDED thread. Unless, of course, the poster is Serbian, and bought the pills from the local chemist...uh huh

P.S. Andy, I'll put your mind at ease, throw the illegal pills out, and then you won't have to worry about possibly poisoning yourself in addition to potential legal consequences.

Calm Down, Guys

We are here to help anyone identify his pill.  We don't care if the poster is foreign or the pill is foreign.  All we want to do is identify the substance, if possible, so no one is hurt.

And as a bonus, we get to learn about foreign meds.  I find that aspect fascinating.

Also, please be advised that a substance that is controlled in the US might not be controlled in another country.  APAP/codeine tablets are one example.

Currently many of our RX drugs are freely available without a prescription in most countries.

If anyone finds the pill ID questions offensive, ignore them.Surprised

It's not necessary to chastise the poster about ordering from an illegal online pharmacy.  It's entirely possible the poster is Serbian and is allowed by law to buy a benzo from any local pharmacy.

I respect your dedication to the site as much as anyone, but this is rather blatant. Nowhere in my post did I state I cared about the nationality of the poster. I am well aware of the variance in laws pertaining to purchasing medication in countries other than the United States.

All of this aside, it is impossible to positively identify a substance using imprints/ images alone. Uness the pills are phsyically tested using GC-MS, all we can do is say, "that's what the pill is supposed to look like." How would it play out if a poster I.D.'d a pill based on a photo, and the pill turned out to be a counterfeit containing some type of poison? Posters need to be constantly reminded that this site is only an aid to "identification." I don't find the pill I.D. questions offensive, I find them bordering on dangerous. I have never once thought that the medicine I purchased (legally) might be something else. Perhaps I am confused. Under what circumstances do individuals need pills identified? (Aside from the mother who found pills in son's pocket, etc.)

One more thing, I don't know whether or not you deal with a chronic painful condition yourself Kirby, but these illegal imports are just another log on the fire that the DEA has burning under the feet of those with chronic pain. Please understand the source of some of the frustration...

Again, thank you for contributing to such a great site.

Your point is taken Kirby, it

Your point is taken Kirby, it certainly could be a legitimate and helpful thread.

However the cynic in me doubts it. I even doubt the threads that say "concerned mother finds pill in son's room". I've read and heard people say that if you don't know what a pill is you should call poision control and just tell them you found the pill in your kid's room or something.

Despite that, the pill idenitification service is valuable to the world and we can't really keep people from misuing it even though we would like to..

You are absolutely correct.  That's all we can do.  That's all Poison Control can do.  That's all a pharmacist can do.  That's all law enforcement can do - identify the pills by imprint.  US meds (OTC, RX and homepathic) imprints are required by law so that doctors, pharmacists, nurses, EMTs etc. will know what a certain substance is when they need to make an immediate life-or-death decision.

In the US the imprint usually suffices for ID purposes.  The professionals don't bother testing unless there is a valid reason for it.  It's expensive and usually not necessary unless there is possibly criminal behavior involved.

My point is if we can help someone identify a pill, that's good, whether the pill or poster is domestic or foreign.  And many of us are much more skilled at identifying foreign imprints than any US  "professional" such as Poison Control.

We are not aiding the DEA in its fruitless War on Drugs that's been waging for 40 years.

The media and DEA will always find excuses for punishing successful pain treatments for legitimate, responsible patients because the  people who abuse meds and other substances need 'protection' against the cruel, mean world.YellFrown

So we punish the successful (good doctors and responsible patients) and reward the people who can't OR WON'T cope with life.  Apparently it's easier to let the nanny state take care of your every need.
