Yet how many people do take the drug without issues? In any event I would defer to a doctor.

I'm a recovering alcoholic and run the risk of abusing any medication. If one makes me feel better I'll take three.

I watched my mother often take pain medication without abuse.

However, that's not me and I'm careful with all medication.
