I've been his patient for years. I changed Drs. about a year ago, because I don't think politics belong in a Dr's. office. He had political photos in several of his exam rooms and espoused very conservative politics. In spite of disliking him, I would seriously doubt him prescribing opiates easily.
I tore a muscle in my back, and he gave me 10 day's worth of pain meds and anti-spasmodics. I didn't ask for more, because I'm not a fan of pill-popping. He seems reluctant to prescribe opiate cough meds. Typically, Drs. who pass out opiates are addicts themselves, and I would be shocked to discover he's an addict, and I know he's cautious in prescribing opiates.

Doctors are given "incentives" for pushing certain drugs. A nice set of golf clubs or a trip to the Carribean maybe. Haven't you noticed when you go to your doctors office that the pushers are always gathered in the waiting rooms? The pharmaceutical reps.

My family doctor prescribed oxycontin for me years ago. I didn't even know it was a narcotic and I had no idea it was the abusers drug of choice. All I knew at the time was that it worked, for awhile, and I trusted my doctor. If you want it to continue to work for pain, you have to up the milligram dosage as time goes by. After awhile, I realized that it was affecting me in other ways. I felt like hell everyday of my life. Yeah, it helped with the chronic pain but it was everything I could do to get out of bed in the morning and function. I had MAJOR surgury 6 yrs ago for the sole purpose of getting off this crap that I had become dependent on. I was completely off it within a couple of weeks after my surgury and when I told my doctor, he got really upset with me. Purdue or Merck or whoever makes it must give them very good incentives.

When it first came on the market, doctors pushed it big time because of the incentives they received and it does work like a miracle for pain (short-term). A lot of people became dependent on the crap then. This drug wasn't meant for long-term use though. But people trust their doctors. I wouldn't take anything that I didn't research thoroughly first now. I'm not nearly as trusting of doctors anymore. They love to drug everybody up. Half the people out there are on pain meds and/or anti-depressants.

You are incorrect. The Anti-Kickback Law of 1972 prevents physicians from receiving remuneration for what you suggest. 99% of physicians are not willing to risk their license for the "incentives" you mention. Also, physicians that are employed by a hospital or health system are subject to that organizations corporate compliance regulations which prevents receiving gifts over a certain $ value, such as 10 dollars.

Actually, the doctors don't get anything for writing the drugs you fill. If you want to blame anyone blame the managed care companies or Medicaid. I have been a rep for over 10 years. Now a days the pharmacies will switch your meds to generics. Yes....there is a difference, but they get incentives for switching your meds. The doctors hands are tied. Sometimes they are never called to okay the change. Well...for pain meds. I have sold those before and it's amazing how a person can get them for $1-$2 on state medicaid. So don't blame reps or doctors. As a rep I was a firm believer that the samples we supplied were for people to try the drug and make sure it worked, before paying. Also for people when couldn't afford the meds. People love to bitch about us in the waiting rooms, but we supply your free samples!

To Rep and Emo,

Please do a favor for those of us who happen to enjoy the system quite the way it is and would even like to see chenges in the other direction.

When you guys play the "blame game" and try to deflect responsibility for your actions, which by the way is quite cowardly, to be frank, you ruin it for everybody. That is a classic case of snitching on your buddies when YOU got busted.

Emo, you mean to tell me that you were taking oxycontin for years and were oblivious to the fact that it was a nation-wide epidemic, broadcast day and night on the news, and plastered throughout the Internet, which you are obviously no stranger to, and you had no idea what that "ephoric" feeling was that you most surely enjoyed each time you took a pill?

I'm sorry, Emo, but you have either stumbled into a place where you don't belong, and you should just be quiet and play along, while you try to get help for your addiction (I suggest Methadone maintanence, who is adding his thoughts as I write this. We've been there, and realize that there is noone to blame but myself.

And Rep, seriously, Medicaid is the problem? Sorry, you sound like the type of person who sues McDonald's for getting fat.
Don't support his cop-out mentality. We are NOT idiots! Especially in the days of the Internet, there is no way that a doctor or Medicaid, or medashmade is pulling the wool over anyone's eyes. These drugs don't sneak up on anybody, they come down Broadway with flashers on.

If IMO really did begin taking the drug in the beginning, I can understand the problem. It was new, unknown, and even Drs. didn't realize the horrible danger it poses.

It was my impression, though, when it first came out, it was marketed as an end-of-life drug for terminal patients with pain. I'm not sure where I got that from, but I recall something to that effect.

Anyone who becomes addicted now and is not using it as an end-of-life drug is going into it knowing what they are doing.

Are you high? No, I never had the euphoric feeling you're talking about. From what I've heard, that comes with snorting them, which I've never done with any drug in my life. They worked for my pain but they also slowly kill you, or so I felt that way personally.

Reread my first post please. I was prescribed the drug in late '98. I had never heard of oxycontin at the time and I completely trusted my doctor, who, at that time, was writing the prescription for many pain sufferers.(He doesn't anymore from what I've heard.) It wasn't long after I was prescribed them that oxycontin started to become big news because the junkies figured out ways to abuse it. I remember in '99 or '00, a nurse at St. Joe's in Lexington told me about her nephew dying from OD'ing by snorting them. That was the first I had heard of how dangerous the drug is for abusers. For people living with real, chronic pain, it's like a miracle drug--for a little while anyway.

I haven't taken them or had a prescription for them in 6 years. I did find a few in the back of a cabinet not long ago. I tossed them out.(I know that just made a few druggies cringe.)

My mother had medicaid in '02, before she died, and it would not cover Lortab when cancer had eaten through her thigh bone. I know this because I went to get her prescription and was told medicaid didn't cover narcotics. I paid for them. So unless the coverages have changed, medicaid does not cover narcotics.

Marnie Waggoner on Crooks St. in Ashland. She writes out opiates all day long. You don't even need a prescription. She will fill any order, large or small.
