Well, the current incarnation of Opera is based on Chrome, but they've made a lot of positive changes to the code base. I don't really use Chrome much though, so I'm not sure exactly how Deep the differences go.
And anyone who says Ibuprofen or Tylenol works better for them is likely a DEA shill or got placebos, because that's a load of crap. I can understand the nausea, yes, but to say opioids are less effective than over the counter counter analgesics is ridiculous.
That's not entirely true. There are people who do not metabolize opioids effectively. They are, however, very rare. I'd guess most people who say the above actually have little or no experience with opiate painkillers, and are instead spouting BS they heard from someone else in order to look informed.
Standard release opiates are far more potent, because they are absorbed far more quickly. An SR tablet produces 3x the concentration as an ER tablet, because they're metabolized 3x as quickly.
Or perhaps the opiates I use are voodoo and work in exactly the opposite manner they do for everyone else.
Visit a chronic pain clinic. Until then, fuck right the hell off.
Yeah, that was one thing that annoyed me about the article. 5x the strength of what? Codeine? Hydrocodone? Morphine? Oxycodone? Hydromorphone? Fentanyl? Buprenorphine? Carfentanil?
For an actual answer, according to the description of the person above claiming to have been in the trial (assuming they're correct in the dosing comparison) it's about half the potency of oxycodone.
Looks like you're not aware of how opiates work.
You cannot use non-opiate placebos for control in opiate trials. Not only would it be blindingly obvious to everyone involved who was on the control, it would also violate every standard of medical ethics.
It may not have been that the drug was incapable of meeting your pain needs. I was on the fentanyl transdermal patch as well, and was having absorption issues resulting in the patch wearing out unpredictably. When I moved back to oxycodone from fentanyl, I went through basically the same thing you describe when you switched to Zohydro. In addition, I also went through intense opiate withdrawal despite being on opiate therapy (again, pretty much as you describe, though shorter in length). There are certain people who fentanyl affects that way. It's phenomenal when it works right, and hell when it doesn't.
I'm glad I wasn't on fentanyl for long enough to go through the lengthy withdrawal you did; I got off it in relatively short order and will not ever again use the transdermal form.
Oh, comfortable masks most certainly exist. They tend to be full enclosure masks though, in order to be supported by structures other than the bridge of your nose. As a result, they're hideously expensive compared to half-masks.
Opera 15 (now 19) isn't FireFox, it's Chrome.
The one fortunate thing is they're building back into Chrome what they lost when they stopped developing Presto. It's slow, but it's happening. I still miss things like Ctrl-Z re-opening closed windows, but they've regained a lot of the ground they lost in the changeover.
I still really miss per-site options, which haven't made it back into Chrome-based Opera.
To cops in the US, there's no such things as "law abiding citizens." There are two classes of people: cops, and potential criminals.
It can even include those above you in the chain of command. Anyone below the highest person in the chain of command whose backing you have is also a potential criminal target.
They usually stop trying to push the same thing when it fails once though. That's what differentiates MS from many other companies.
And this is the sort of thing that leads to the generalization of the Slashdot membership being composed almost entirely of virgins, or at least those who are not capable of sustaining a relationship with a woman that doesn't involve large cash payments.
Most of the addicts I've known do all those things. None of them are incompatible with addiction. At all.
