    This thoroughly convinces me it is just a question of when, not if, we finally get the first ever good effective non-addictive painkiller with few side effects. As I know from bitter experience (both personal and from seeing other people suffering) ALL the current non-addictive so-called painkillers are mainly placebo in there effect and pretty much useless for people who are in serious pain. We simply and currently haven't got a single acceptable painkiller for prolonged pain.

    The earlier link I posted in another thread on the closely related subject was;

    Nice find. Specially since people suffer from this (Ant recently suffered from this and went to rehab but made it for I'm A Celeb)
