The number of ER visits due to oxycodone pills, including Percocet, increased by over one fifty percent between 2004 and 2008. It is also estimated that about ten percent of the patients who are currently prescribed with Percocet for pain relief will continue to stick on to the drug leading to its addiction and abuse.

Whenever it spreads, it starts to become fatal because the whole body is affected with the disease. “This type of cancer kills an estimated 10,130 people in the US just annually.” When people absorb the rays, their skin becomes darker.

That means taking time out of our busy day to counsel each patient on their medications instead of just ringing them out.
