Is it possible that these drugs are way over prescribed? Maybe it's time to look at the drug companies producing and pushing this drug onto physicians who then too easily prescribe it (or way too much of it) to their patients.
Is it really necessary for a whole prescription of Vicodin for a simple tooth extraction when Advil could work? When my 17 year old son had his wisdom teeth removed he was given a large size pill bottle of Vicodin and he didn't even have much pain. Same thing when my husband had knee surgery - he just needed 1 or 2 pills not a huge prescription.
