Should narcotic painkillers be classified or thought of as performance-enhancing drugs?

In the wake of Karo Parisyan's failed UFC 94 drug test due to the alleged use of a painkiller cocktail, many fans wonder why the drug's users receive such harsh punishments. Is it because painkillers are performance-enhancing drugs, as some commission executives contend?

In our latest "Ask the Doc" column, MMAjunkie.com medical columnist and consultant Dr. Johnny Benjamin weighs in.
