After reading the "full story" above, even though I do take Lortab 10 occasionally for lower back pain, the program sounds like a good deal. If Dr.'s would use it, it could help keep excess drugs off the streets and/or help those who are addicted to them. Yeah, I'm for it MS!

Overworked doctor? For what they make they can run a name through a database. THEY won't do it anyways. One of their assistance will.
