When bureaucrats knows more about a pt’s medication needs that the pt’s physician ?

This looks like another Medical Board that has no understanding that surgical induced pain is different and ADDITIVE to existing chronic pain and this letter appears to be from a neurosurgical group.

This letter also suggests that any/all pts should expect pain to persist for up to at least TWO MONTHS post surgery.

So if the pt’s primary pain prescriber will not increase their pain therapy to compensate for the pt’s surgically induced pain…then it would appear that the pt can expect to live in a elevated – maybe even a torturous level of  – pain for a couple of months.

The controlled substance act states that NO ONE CAN PRESCRIBE a controlled substance without doing a in person exam… so the question is… is the Arkansas Medical Board prescribing/de-prescribing controlled substances for pts that no one on the board has done a in person pt exam ?

  1. Right ON. The Arkansas Medical Board IS prescribing/de-prescribing controlled substances for pts that no one on the board has done a in person pt exam

  2. ALSO there is NO EXCEPTION to your complete STUPIDITY…

    The cruel opiate prohibitions have four facets that give great comfort to the prohibitors and continue to provide them ‘profit’ of one kind or another;

    *False-Puritanism (the false perception of that warm, fuzzy feeling that you are standing for right and ‘helping’, similar to severely false religion, remember how many in the crowd cheered Jesus’ cruel death, …it is also believed that it can help one get re-elected).

    *The opportunity to not have to work or think or take time to gain new knowledge and understanding.

    *The ship load of money that can be controlled for ‘suing’ pharmaceutical manufacturing (I would say it’s not the DEA nearly as much as the DOJ/AG who oversee the DEA).

    * It provides complete safety from the real threat of prosecution and personal ruin, courtesy of the DOJ/AG, for any doctor or agency authority standing for pain medicine.
