What's Your Take?

OxyContin, an extended-release version of the painkiller oxycodone  is a narcotic used to treat moderate to severe pain. The Food and Drug Administration has reportedly approved the use of the drug for children as young as 11 years old. While the drug may provide relief to young cancer patients, there is a concern by some doctors that prescribing OxyContin could put them at risk of addiction.        

What’s your take? Do you think the benefits of OxyContin outweigh the risks to children?

Yes I do. Kids find a way to abuse many drugs. They even huff paint. If a child can be relieved of pain,it is worth it.
