What fee did you have to pay? The fee for the prescription at the pharmacy (nowadays £7 or so). If the doctor was charging a fee for writing a scrip, it was either a private doc or an NHS doc that was pulling some funny stuff. The NHS allows 3 month supplies of some meds, regulated stuff like pain meds are either 14 or 28 day supplies.
Some things are predictable.
We have WAY too much government.
I like the cut of your jib.
I’m in the same boat..... managing pain can be tricky at best and this is just stupid. Those who are addicts will still get their pills through the illegal mill and those of us with pain will pay the price.
Just plain crazy
No where did I mean to imply that I was justifying the Feds doing this.
As you said, this is a state issue because people died from his over prescribing.
Along with 10 other medications I take daily, I currently have a prescription for Oxycodone, that fortunately I only need on occasion, so this affects me too
You can still get the real stuff but you have to show a driver’s license and sign for it..... You have to ask the pharmacist for the real stuff instead of it being on the shelves. It is still the only thing that works well on my allergies
See we agree on so much.
Can we just do away with some of these agencies??
Pain sucks hard.
I'm still going to sit in my local city counsel budget meeting with a very, very large cup of black coffee and argue for them to cut that budget as hard as I can argue.
“And if you put government in charge of the Sahara, we’d have a shortage of sand.”
Good one! So let’s do this: put the gov’t in charge of protecting our freedom. Let’s charter them to enforce our bill of rights. If they want to control so much, let them control anything that threatens our freedom.
I know. We tried that already.
'One of the problems' is a justification statement.
You were trying to justify the federal rule (not even a law, and not passed by congress).
You’re misreading my reason for posting that. Perhaps I should have elaborated.
My intention was to point out that the taxpayer is providing these to people who obviously can live without them and everybody who actually needs them pays the price.
Yep. The area being protected is Washington and we are in their crosshairs. So in their eyes, gov’t is working just fine, thank you.
Thereby justifying this federal rule because everyone needs to pay the price?
Not much room there.
You are justifying the federal rule making.
That's the way it comes across.
Even if you are trying to channel the non-existent brain function of federal flunkies.
The salisilates send me into anaphylactic shock....so NSAIDs are kind of a big no no
And if that is all you can take then yeah pain sucks real hard
Govt is getting nervous because people are talking more about cutting government budgets to get rid of this crap.
Why do you think the GOP-E hates conservatives? Their phony-baloney jobs are at stake.
Again...I apologize that anyone got that impression from my comment.
It wasn’t how I intended it.
I absolutely agree with you that the feds are overreaching.
