    Celecoxib one of the most abused prescription drugs?? 
    #1
    Capsule
    What the hell? I've been prescribed this for 4 years and while I sometimes take more than prescribed (two instead of one; three times a day instead of two) I've only ever done so when I've legitimately been in pain.


    http://www.genengnews.com/insight-an...drugs/77900677

    The same "Top 20 Abused Prescription Drugs" is at several other sources and they are basically all the same listings.

    Does anyone know how or why Celecoxib is abused? I'm pretty sure it's just an NSAID.

    That writer may be a moron. Celecoxib is a next gen anti inflammatory... I'm guessing he just googled pain medicine and saw that it's frequently prescribed for pain which = painkiller which = drug of abuse

    Literally, I know people who have taken a bunch of Tylenol and ibuprofen thinking that it would get them high because they're painkillers.

    Yeah people sure can be dumb. I remember being about 14 and a group of students in my year group (I guess aquaintences of mine, hardly knew them) Sat at the lunchtable crushing and snorting Paracetamol (Tylanol) to get high.

    I remember being stunned - even at that age - that people can possibly be so stupid.
    One guy was in my French class next period and he started crying and claimed the Tylenol was making him hallucinate. I'm not sure if it had a placebo effect and he sort of convinced himself he was trippin or if he's just full of bullshit.

    I have called people complete idiot's I knew for snorting perc5s trying to get high. They're literally snorting 99 percent Tylenol and the small amount of oxycodone in the pill is likely not even absorbed in the nasal passages because it's all clogged up with powder. People are idiots. The writer of this article is an idiot. It's not even a narcotic.

    Placebo effect mixed with ignorance can be more powerful than most would assume.

    Back when I was a junkie, I once sold a few sweet tarts(and a couple of small square pieces of construction paper) to some people, claiming that it was LSD.

    ....they called me the next day to tell me about their amazing "trip" and attempted to purchase some more.

    I believe it could happen. I'm sure an experienced psychonaut would tell (most experienced users will know to be skeptical of anything sold as lsd), but to the naive individual, I could see it happening. The placebo effect is very, very real

    Either way.... I decided to not sell them anymore on principal believe it or not(they were just kids looking for a good time with daddy's money). But I also didn't want to bring shit onto myself in the future when they finally realized it was bunk. But I guarantee you they thought it was real....and real strong. Cuz not only were their accounts of the event/trip extremely detailed, but I still spoke with them on many occasions in the future where they were purchasing other products from me.
    If they knew I had ripped them off, they would have done something about it, not continue to be my customers. That is why I believe in the power of placebo and ignorance.

    Abusing COX-2-inhibitors is a stupid idea, you'll most likely just end up having an gastric ulcer
