That is not enough! Stop manufacturing this killer drug so it will stop killing innocent people!

HI I just want to start by saying that I am so glad that somebody has put up a website like this. I knew this drug was a killer but I didn't realize how horrible it truly was until my father started taking it. I am glad that somebody has set up a site like this for people to realize how serious of a problem this is.
On Father's day this year my brother and I lost our father. There is no reason for this.
We love him and miss him more than words can express.

Dave Michael McCoy South Jordan UT 19 yrs old 2004
He was one of my good friends a role model.
Im only 16 years old and he was like an older brother to me.

reminice back on that tragic day, my phone rung
And a sad voice tellin me, Dave was gone home
It was like a knife piercing my chest and I couldn't breath
I didn't wanna accept it, didn't wanna believe it
I swear with my life, I cried so hard
Literally, they had to carry me to the car
While I stand in his room now its tearin me apart
But I had to let it out cause it was tearin at my heart
Cause he died over somethin so petty and so small
A human life is so very precious I hope ya'll
Understand how I'm feelin cos I love you Dave
I wanna chill wit you, laugh wit you, hug you Dave
But I can't and you was so close to seein dreams
A pill came along and took you away from the team
So don't mistake this poem, as just another one
This goes out to everyone who lost a loved one.

"A Little Pink Rose"
 
A little pink rose in our garden grew
The tiniest one of all
Twas kissed by the sun'
Caressed by the dew
O little pink rose in our garden
O little ink rose was you
 
O little pink rose of your parents heart
Have you faded and gone away,
Has the gardener gathered our little pink rose
For his loveliest garden today
 
Did he need one more blossom
Of your size and hue
And was that the reason
The gardener chose you.
 
O little pink rose of your parents heart
Have you faded and gone away.

Steven Austin Goddard
 

 
03/31/63 06/25/00
My only brother, Steven, did not die of an overdose of oxycontin.  He was, instead, so terribly addicted to this potent killer - taking five 40's a day - that when he had a surgery, he went through his prescription in three days.   He had just had one of his cancerous testicles removed (his prognosis was excellent) and the pain was excruciating.  His doctor didn't know he had become addicted to oxycontin.
Steven suffered horrendous, terrible pain as a result of his oxycontin abuse.
Screaming alone in pain, he brought himself to write a loving letter to his family.
Then he put a bullet in his heart.
The contempt I feel for the makers and prescribers of this drug is tremendous.  Every single day, the pain finds it's way back to me and becomes a veritable dagger.
Nobody should have to live with the knowledge that their loved one suffered so in their lasts hours on this earth.
Each day I quietly celebrate the joy I had in knowing and loving my brother Steven.

  2005 hope Purdue knows how readily available this drug has become, that it’s getting into the wrong hands of idiots who take it for pleasure and share it with people who are unsuspecting of it’s danger.  I knew my boyfriend for 16 years.  I wanted to marry and have a little girl with him.  We had already picked out her name.  I miss him every minute of every day.  He made the decision to snort it, but someone also made the decision to make it available.  I love you and miss you Ellis

20 yrs old 2004 I rencently lost my baby brother to oxy accidental overdose he was 20. I work  in a clinic that also has the VA patients in it. Well with in the last 8 months since Joey died I have been told by patients that these Doctors are prescribing oxy to these vets for things like back pain and kidney pain which in my opinion is not right. They are handing this stuff out to freely

His story sounds so much like your sons (and so many others). 
 
Debbie's Brother CA
 
45 yrs old 03/12/05 Apparently, my 45 year old brother was prescribed Oxycontin for chronic pain....in addition to Vicodan and several other medications.

My nephew just came to tell me that my brother went in to take a nap yesterday....and never woke up.

Why in the heck would anyone prescribe THIS drug to anyone who was also
taking other cns depressants?

I am flabbergasted that my Little Brother was even put into this position and now he is dead.....DEAD....for NO good reason.

Thanks for your website....I just didn't know....

Marcos had a very special life.  He acheived more in his life than most individuals could acheive in their lifetime. 

 Marcos had many wonderful experiences, ranging from his travels to Europe, becoming a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and attaining his ultimate goal; skydiving.  He was handsome in more ways that just his looks.  He was an example of success.

My adopted baby James Donald Roszelle 3rd (Jack) was born July 31, 2001. The hspital was unfamilar with the withdrawl symptons and sent him home with where he died at 42 hours old.  You can google his name and find many articles.  He was the first innocent victim to die from secondary Oxycontin use.   Unfortunately my  husband never got over the shock of losing this most wanted child and died 13 months later.  Thank you,  Laurie Roszelle
Luanne Wright     12/08/05
My sister, LuAnne Wright, lost her medicaid benefits and was plunged into cold-turkey withdrawal from prescribed oxycontin (for chronic pain).
 
She shot herself on December 8, 2005, one week after her 41st birthday.
 
She was very loved by all who knew her, especially her daughter Shannon, 10.
John's friend     2005

My good friend was a successful business man. He had been sober in AA for many years. His back was very bad and was afraid of his dependence to percoset. His doctor told him of a new drug oxycontin that would be safe for him to use because it would not give him the rush of percs.

I ended up taking him to a rapid detox in Phoenix to help him get of these highly addicting pills. It did not work. He ended up having doctors all over the country so he could get more of them.

When he could get no more he ended up drinking very heavily for several weeks then killed him self by shooting himself in the chest.

I guess it is not that funny.

The doctor was told by the pharmaceutical rep that this drug was safe for patients with addiction problems. Good marketing huh.

MY ANGEL LEFT ME ON JULY 21st 2004 DUE TO AN OXYCONTIN OVERDOSE. SHE IS MY JOY MY LIFE MY WHOLE WORLD. TRENISHIA WAS ONLY 5 YEARS OLD. SHE LEFT  BEHIND A TWIN AND A FAMILY WHO LOVED HER. I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT OXYCONTIN BUT I KNOW NOW THAT IT KILLS. MY BABY DIE FROM A 10mg PILL. IT'S STILL UNCLEAR TO ME WHERE SHE FOUND IT. I JUST WISH EVERY NIGHT THAT I CAN GO BACK IN TIME JUST TO SAVE MY BABY; BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T DESERVE TO DIE. I ALSO WISH THAT WHO EVER MADE IT WOULD NOT HAVE NEVER PUT IT ON THE MARKET; BECAUSE IT KILLS. IT'S ALMOST LIKE A BULLET KILL ANYTHING IN IT'S PATH EVEN A CHILD. I MISS MY BABY EVERYDAY I JUST WANT TO HOLD HER IN MY ARMS AGAIN.
Mary Flory Rio Rancho NM 49 yrs old 03/21/04
Mary was 49 when she died from the results of Oxycontin.  She was my soon to
be mother in law.  She died 5 months before I married her son.  In late
March 2004, she was rushed to the emergency room with a toxic mega colon.
She died two weeks later as a result of constipation caused by Oxycontin
which resulted in the mega colon and then septic shock.  She left behind so
many people who loved her.  She was a free spirit who loved everyone she
met.  Her light and her humor and her generosity touched so many people.
She was robbed of ever knowing her grandchildren, watching her son get
married, and god knows how many other wonderful experiences.  We placed a
chair with her mother of the groom corsage on stage when we got married, and
during the ceremony there was a moment of silence for her.  On what would
have been an otherwise joyous day, people were weeping, not from happiness,
but from loss.  Oxycontin robbed my husband of his mother and my children of
one of their grandmothers, and for that I will forever be infuriated.

Withdrawls over came him, he poured gasoline over his body and set hiself on fire. Due to complications and all the suffering he would have had to go thru, losing limbs and having over 70% of his body burnt past the muscle, he passed away.
He will be greatly missed.

No one is immortal on this planet, the end can come in something that is supposed to help...Thank you.
James Polychronopoulos Queens, NY 8/31/76 6-6-06 I have heard of this drug oxycontin from the streets and know of how attainable it is. It is extremely scary how all of these perscription pills are sold off the market. They are hurting and killing people everyday.
