The doctor didn't force her to take these pills. Doctors should be immune from prosecution for over prescribing. While it sounds like this doctor was certainly prescribing sufficient pain medication for his patient. Legal actions is why so many doctors are afraid to prescribe sufficient amounts of narcotics to treat pain. Personally, I hope he's found not guilty if he's prosecuted. Or may be I should say persecuted
No way
