Did you really read the article Eric ? "Young people that appeared to be in good health and NOT in chronic pain." Out of service or unanswered phones at the doctors offices.

It is difficult for a doc to know exactly how much pain a patient is in and what the appropriate medication might be but, when one sees a pattern of abuse by a physician is it imprudent to investigate and take action against those supplying CDS to those with little or no need ?

You responded in to a woman on another thread that had lost a 22 year old son and, did so in a kind and understanding manner. I doubt that you like reading posts like that any more than I do and you feel just as bad as I do when reading them.

Stopping physician abuse and keeping the flow of needed medication to those that have a legitimate need is important less that flow be stopped to those with need.

So, is it also inappropriate to limit a pharmacist's license when he contributes to the problem ? Legitimate pain sufferers may be inconvenienced by having to go to a more judicious pharmacy but they're not cut off.
