Larry Golbom is a pharmacist who definitely understands the dynamics of the silent epidemic of prescription drug addiction in America. “Larry G” hosts a radio show every Sunday night from 9-11 PM (EST) to make listeners aware of the dangers of drugs like OxyContin. You can listen to the radio show and listen to the archives on PrescriptionAddictionRadio.com.
Larry G’s site has a wealth of information and links that will be enlightening to the individual who is suspicious about the legality of benefit of OxyContin.
I would highly recommended starting off by listening to “Oxycontin – Biggest medical hoax in last 100 years.” In this .mp3 download, Larry G draws a great parallel between Purdue Pharma’s promotion of OxyContin in the 1990s and Bayer’s promotion of heroin in the 1890s. Both companies profited by promoting these highly addictive substances with medical “studies,” promotional gifts, and free samples.
Larry G is on the forefront to the battle against the unethical prescribing of narcotic painkillers. Be sure to click on some of the links to see who else is partnering the struggle to raise awareness about the dangers of OxyContin.
