That is exactly what the govt wants, everybody doing heroin so they can lock up everyone in the FEMA camps and forget about you. They won't tell people there are a major amount of people in this country in chronic pain, and by scaring all the doctors into not prescribing legit patients the means to live some resemblance of a normal life, what the hell do you expect?

Most legitimate chronic pain patients would have no idea how to obtain heroin and probably wouldn't use it if given the chance. Most pain patients have been law abiding their whole lives and the thought of using an illegal drug is repugnant to most of them. They are clearly victims of dea thuggery and today's police state of medicine. Today dea thugs make medical decisions for doctors concerning pain treatment even though they have no medical training.

Went to the ER last night because of chronic pain, and was told after telling them I am not here for drugs, I was told by thedoctor we cannot give you anything except Flexeril and Ultram because the gov't i cracking down on ERs dispensing opioids. Um why is the gov't telling Doctors and Nurse Practitioners how to do the job theyy went to school for???? WTF! The gov't is the only one in the drivers seat. They should change our fiat currency to say "Through sheer blindness and paralyzing fear, in the government we trust".

All "authority" figures are cowards with inadequate masculinity hanging from their flabby stomachs. To expect anything less from these homo-erotic, female-rejected wannabe jocks is like expecting the fckin moon to start helping one achieve a tan. As Americans, we are supposed to have the right and the balls to stand and rise up against a government which has become too big and oppressive. That time is now. We need to communicate our concerns to doctors and manufacturers of the medications we need so that we, as a community have a resolve; not the government. We will peacefully go about our business and take care of our health and families; only turning to violence when necessary because of unjust oppression. You know who says it's bad to need pain medicine.. cops. You know who says you should never shoot a cop.. cops. Get the point. I, as any true American, will begin conducting my life as I wish in a peaceful, non-intrusive, self-serving way; only doing the unthinkable when my being is intruded upon. Good day true Americans.

And it is not like your doctor is your doctor much anymore. Pain is the only disease I know of where you have to sign a "contract" to receive treatment. Then, at least in my case, we end up under-medicated with a contract that allows the doctor too much control over your personal life.
My doctor is now pushing every month for shots so he can reduce my pain medications. Ya, I am in my early 50's and I want to get ineffective shots every 2 months for life. I don't think so. And seeing as there are no lower doses I can take now because of my stomach, that means take away. I am getting the feeling that if I don't do the shots or if the shots don't "cure" the pain, I may be out the door. Meanwhile I am suffering like a son of a bitch.
I really think something might be going on because I did a UA and the nurse left it in a bathroom (in an unmarked bottle) while she took me back to my room. This is the first time they did not pull off the covering tab in front of me to let me witness it. I got my meds but this stood out as a bit unusual.
Plus, talk about tacky. The bathroom was in an exam room that they put other patients in while I was in there. Took a big long, loud drain and came out to find a little old African-American lady and her son staring at me.
But anyways, it does not look good for legitimate pain patients. After three years with this doctor I still wonder every month if I will get a return appointment.
Hey WoRD...I went through those kind of shots before I became ill and required surgery. The levels of steroids these guys shoot into your back (or wherever) can have some serious side-effects over time...and not all that much time either! If your doc's starting to put even more restrictions on you after you've had what sounds to me like an open and honest 3 year doctor/patient relationship you might want to start checking into alternative doctors. Sometimes they'll get like this when the local medical board starts inquiring into their prescribing practices involving other patients. My family doctor (who handled ALOT of my after-care)finally stopped prescribing Sch.II's altogether because of the actions of a couple of his other patients, fortunately he gave me a referral prior to the event! Just something to think about... ;)

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.
