US Addicted to Pain Relief: Hydrocodone Culprit

Pain and pleasure go well together with a prescription.

Hydrocodone is one of the most prescribed opiate pain relievers in the country. This is not a bad thing by itself, but when you consider that this drug can be addicting - a problem arises. It seems like every time I turn on the news there is a story about the drug be it doctors writing bad prescriptions, pharmacy robberies related to the drug (and oxy), or the illegal sale of the drug on the streets and I have got to admit it is pretty concerning.
