I find one trip to my doctor and a trip to one pharmacy exhausting enough. Holy shiat.

As of a couple years ago Florida was the drug supplier for a lot of the East coast. The Cape Cod Times had a series of stories. As long as it's quasi-legal to make money off bogus prescription writing there will be shops set up to write bogus prescriptions.

Why don't we just legalize recreational drug use?

Then doctors could review your medical records and advise you on the safest ways to get high and how to do so responsibly while pharmacists could legally sell you OTC strength things like marijuana and ecstasy and the really responsible types could get more dangerous things like opium fresh from Afghanistan which would boost their local economy if they could export it legally directly to America they'd finally have money to live a western lifestyle of relative opulence and it would reduce terrorism, end wars, and start to reduce the population once when everyone has pill-dick and can't finish.

Yup. It's why so awful for me to get a new ambien prescription when I moved. I came in with my medical records, and my former doctor's phone number, and a write up of how my sleep disorder has affected me throughout my life and how well my medication has been working for the last several years- and still got treated like an addict looking for fun stuff.

It was really demeaning and dehumanizing to have to go through that process too.

Florida does not have a prescription drug registration, database, or pretty much any control over what licensed doctors do in their state.

This should've just been labled with the usual "Florida" tag as the entire state is "Scary".

I swiped a few pills from my dog's vet. I thought I got Special-K, but it was just a few heart worm pills.

"We had a person that was doctor shopping and after we looking into it more we discovered she had 56 doctors, over 150 to 170 different scripts, and over 70 different pharmacies,"

So what? Maybe she suffers from chronic pain and can't get adequately treated from just one doctor because of all this insane anti-drug hysteria. Or maybe she is just taking these pills for fun, but again, so what? Her body, her business.

No, the thing it's supposed to be about is the thing it was about. Your doctor may be a failed stockbroker.

I refuse to take any kind of narcotic analgesic for fear of addiction. I've taken them twice, once after I had my wisdom teeth out, (I took one pill and didn't really need that) and once when I broke down during a sinus infection and took one offered to me by my wife, felt very very guilty after that. I won't touch them anymore at all, and I'm hoping that I can keep singing that tune if I'm in pain.

Gyrfalcon: cretinbob: This is why I can't get something for my farking back.

This is exactly why.


And if even one person needing a pain rx is turned away in our attempts to stop abusers from taking drugs, the system has failed.

This bullshiat logical of throwing the baby out with the bathwater has to stop in this nation.

This is nothing but a new witchhunt from the same WARONDRUGS assholes trying desperately to stop human nature because it offends their delicate (full of shiat and often hypocritical) sensitivities.

I know a girl who's two daughters will grow up with every odd stacked against them because their mother pops pain pills and every other drug she can get her hands on. The state knows, the doctors know, but she still gets rx drugs through both legitimate and illegitimate means. Party on I suppose?

I break my rib falling in the shower?
The after-hours clinic refuses to give me a script because ooooscary. Have to wait 2 days in significant but manageable pain until monday then call my physician to have him fax a rx in to my local pharma.

You know what he says to me?

"Sure thing, but next time come in for a visit. It's not that I'm trying to hit you up for an unneeded co-pay, but they are scrutinizing every narcotic rx we write"


/and one more thing (from a person with history of ulcers), can we possibly get these pain drugs in un-cut time release caps? I'd love to be able to take one when needed without the 1000mg of NSAID wrecking my shiat for 10000 damage.

About 30 seconds after the patent expires on any given drug, you can bet the manufacturer will be shocked, *shocked!* to discover that people are abusing it, and promptly recommend a crackdown, along with a replacement of it's new, same drug, in a new, generically developed delivery form.

Lots of people spent 7 years doing difficult sh*t and got the opportunity to continue doing it for another 60 years. 65 if they could afford a doctor.

A lot of prescription pill abusers seem to think they aren't addicts and don't have a problem because they aquire their drugs the "legitimate" way. A relative of mine took shiat tons of Oxycontin that he got from at least several doctors. He was also a real alcoholic. Yet he looked down his nose at anyone who bought theirs off the street. Go figure.

Sorry I was talking about MI where I presume bunner was from. There an MD can "recommend" medical cannabis. I agree pharm companies would be beaten down if we had a worthwhile congress like we had in the 80's

If you take them for short term as directed you should be OK, but it is a hell of a slope to fark with. Trust me you never want to be in "need" of this stuff as in chronic need. Last year i had an allergic reaction to a fairly common medication. It led to kidney and liver failure, to the point of dialysis. The worse part was my legs became swollen to the point of surgical intervention just to reduce the swelling. I almost lost my left leg. Due to nerve damage, I am now having to take Fentanyl to deal with the residual nerve damage. It works, but you pay heavy for the relief. It sucks.

A lot of prescription pill abusers seem to think they aren't addicts and don't have a problem because they acquire their drugs the "legitimate" way. A relative of mine took shiat tons of Oxycontin that he got from at least several doctors. He was also a real alcoholic. Yet he looked down his nose at anyone who bought theirs off the street. Go figure.


I think an important thing to keep in mind is:

A lot of prescription pill abusers know they are addicts but resign themselves to a managed addiction as the pain they live with every day is SO BAD if they couldn't stop it they would simply commit suicide. And usually their doctors agree, and thus the continued Rx.

The whole doctor as holy shaman and selfless wearer of the 300,000.00 a pop guild cloak pose is not only part of the problem, it's not true.
