And you want to know why spin doctors prescribe such high numbers of pain meds?
Because they own a UA lab and average $500.00 per sample in reimbursements.
There are clinics that test up to a 1,000 samples a month. Do that math.
no worse is if you have cronic pain and they are so afraid of dependece they do
not give you anything. thats what many of us face. no one has read medical
studies. such as the one that says pain meds are stronger on women than on men.
the other is that there is thought to be a genetic trait for addiction and most
people dont have it. i work in a hospital and there are almost no doctors that
over medicate. if anthing ive seen under medication.
I had a severe pain problem but was not educated on what the long term effects
of taking opiods was. The biggest one is called hyperalgesia in which the brain
becomes tricked into pain hypersensitivity. I had a serious disk herniation in
my lower back that prevented me from sitting at all and very llittle standing
for 2 months. I had to be on the pain killers for a few months through physical
therapy. I felt that I was done taking the pills but after a day or two my pain
became so intense I would end up back in the emergency room. I also noticed the
pills had less effectiveness so I went from taking 2 or three to four and then
more and running out and being in misery. That's where I think the risk of
death comes in as people build up and start taking higher dosages. I finally
told my spine doctor to stop prescribing to me and found a doctor who had
written a book on opioid addiction which opened my eyes. He prescribed Suboxone
which helped with the pain and the withdrawals. Everybody needs to become
educated about opioids.
Kellie your correct. Be very careful with soboxwn also. It's a money grab.
Prialt works good, non-opioid, but lots of people have psych issues when taking
