One thought on “Critics Of Opioid Overprescribing Take Aim At Hospital Surveys

  1. So much to say…I am a women, white, 55 yrs old, wife, mother. I have been on pain medication for the past 6 years. I have crohn disease for 15 years having to go on a bio-logic (Remicade) for 6 or so of those years to help control the crohn’s, my body started to reject the remicade which lead to Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, skin infection, severe inflammation. I can go on, so forced to go to pain management, controlling the pain to live my life. Low dose of pain medications. The State’s concerns are valid.. My question is what about us?
    The ones at this age, who would love another alternative in which case none has been offered. And why??? would the pharmaceutical company’s knowing how bad this could get, why put this kind of medication out their for young adults and addicts something like this available??
