Freak these people. All they want is total control over everyone's lives. Everyone with common sense and a Memory knows making it harder to prescribe opioids only hurts legitimate chronic pain patients! There will always be a black market for everything, and making it harder to get just drives the price up, therefore increases crime. I have already felt the pain of a similar line of B.S. that is in effect in PA. Now I cannot find a legimate Pain Management doctor to prescribe me the methadone (3-4 10 mg pills 3x/day, which was the best pain relief I had experienced in 9 years, 2 herniated disks + degenerative disk disease in neck) I was receiving from my last pm doc, who had his liscense suspended due to Kneejerk legislation like this. I am so tired of legislators and their crap of trying to protect me from myself.

It's complete BS!!!

One medical field for treating the down side to prescription opiates and the other side...the Dr prescribing the opiates. On both sides they wanna win the FDA .....making the Dr on either side have more say pretty much.
The human body has been using opium for relief since the dawn of man. There ain't nothing new....it's a toxin...you take to much you die.

It goes the same with high blood pressure medication. If I'd stopped dosing I'll die. Does that make me dependent on that?

That's why people, like myself, are playing medication roulette with non narcotic drugs that can cause dependency, withdrawal, horrible side effects and death. They don't help with pain. They make life worse. Why isn't anyone worried about that? F'ed up.

I've had worse tolerance and withdrawal problems with "safer" non narcotic medications. Controlling, fearful people are far too often wrongfully, or under, educated and/or biased because of a personal connection. It sucks and isn't right.

Friend nearly died from non narcotic pain meds. I can't think of the name of it. But doc added it to her med routine.Said it would work just as good at high enough does. Turns out high dose was toxic to her kidneys among other things.

people in chronic pain need to function. Most of the time there is no surgery or treatment that will reverse the damage. What are people in pain supposed to do. I have been suicidal because of the pain I was in. Other then frustration over being in constant pain I have never been depressed before.

there has to be a better solution than the crap they are pulling on pain management patients.

That's one of my biggest fears right now. I'm so sensitive to medications that not having a caring doctor who will listen could kill me.

My last doc had my pain meds to the point where I could actualy go to the gym 3 days a week and try to live some semblence of a "normal life" (meaning I didnt have to stop and sit down after 5 mins of walking my dog) I was also able to work two jobs. What a freakin junkie and waste of life I am, right? Someone make a law to stop me! But of course The FEDS didn't like the fact my doc was actually helping people, so they shut him down. and a month and a half later, they still will not realease my files! I'm out of meds and out of options because of B.S. laws and politicians deciding what care my doctor should give me.

Wholeheartedly agree. Doctors are suppossed to be compassionate care givers and good listeners. Not acting like robots in fear of state mandates.

I had a great general doctor until the beginning of the year. The one I have now trained with the good doctor but apparently decided to be the exact opposite. He's the egotistical, if I didn't suggest it it doesn't exist, type. So I'm being forced to start from square one when I was doing well where I was. It took SO long to find a caring doctor with the balls to do something. I'll probably die of old age before finding another and I'm not even 30. Somehow I'm still hopeful... or in denial lol.

Not to mention how many mothers to be are testing pain pills on their unborn child. As well as their struggling new born.

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.
