None that i have encountered, but the news tells a different story. how else could we have developed such an extreme opiod crisis in this country if it weren't for doctors over- prescribing.

They "over prescribe" all Big Pharma too much. Healing should be the goal of a doctor.

Blaming Doctors and patients for the "opioid crisis" is ridiculous. I did think it was over prescribing when my daughter was 17 and was prescribed pain meds for strep. But some people need pain meds.

No. It is so hard now to get what is needed for chronic pain. You have to take pee tests, they treat you like a criminal at the pharmacy half the time. My Dr. knows what I need, don't scrutinize her.

In some cases, due to patients pain level, the doctors are afraid to prescribe stronger meds, which for the patient, is wrong. The doctors should know what their patient needs, & prescribe accordingl

Doctors are making medical decisions based on fear of regulatory attention instead of patient need. Patients rarely become addicted to prescribed pain meds. Now they are unable to receive care

I think it's ridiculous that doctors are scared to give people pain medication now because of all the penalties. Some people NEED pain medication!!

I live with chronic pain, the meds they do prescribe make me sick, but they will not prescribe me oxycodin because they are afraid of the government regulation. So I suffer.
