AMA wants to know – any entity denying/limiting pt’s their pain meds

AMA is asking for your stories. We are relaying the request. If you have had problems obtaining opiate pain medicines AMA wants to know.
If you have had limitations on your pain medications by pharmacists, insurance companies, ER’s, after surgery or by office doctors or who ever limiting opioid medications send your brief story to AMA to be counted. Your report needs your name (or the name of a representative, if you are shy), city, state, zip, no address or phone. that’s it plus – your primary diagnosis just one or two, what happened to you 1-3 sentences and what medicines were involved( if just a denial to treat at all put “opiate pain medicine”) add the insurance company if they were a problem and thats all. Make it brief they are just counting.

EMail report to: opioidtaskforce@ama-assn.org

They have said they want to hear from as many as possible. JUST DO IT! easy they are primarily counting

Help get others do this, it is ok if if the sick person cannot do it.

Speak up, someone is listening!

  1. You want my story here it is.https://doctorsofcourage.org/tale-of-a-doctor-attacked/

    The question is what do you plan on doing to end this abuse, I know that you’re a patient oriented organization however what goes on with us happens to patients.

  2. Sorry. What I meant was to ask for a link to the webpage where the AMA asks for chronic pain patients to submit the emails. Whenever we post on an article or some information we try to let the readers be able to go and read the original for themselves. Let’s us also see the information is current and not from a couple years back.

  3. Went to repost this on a patient thread I joined. Would be more effective if there was a direct link to the source material
