To the 2 above posters @wdnas and @PeacefulCat : Do you have first hand knowledge of a person getting an OxyContin prescription who doesn't need it. If so why haven't you reported the physician to the AZ Board of Medical Examiners? No? Hearsay you say. Could it be the heavily regulated Schedule of narcotics requiring doctors to use special triplicate pads to write the prescriptions for Schedule II and III narcotics. These pads are submitted to the DEA by the doctors. Hmm.... OxyContin just gets your tongues wagging. Morphine, Fentynl, Hydrocodone, Vicodin, Duiladid, hydromorphone, Methadone, are just the same and for some reason it is all about OxyContin.
I pray that you are left in extreme chronic pain from a horrible tragic injury and the only treatment that is effective is OxyContin and the doctors you get are so scared to write a prescription to relive your pain so you can suffer like so many hundreds of thousands suffer in the USA because so many doctors are being terrorized by the DEA because of idiots like you two. I can only hope as a Veteran from OIF who suffered a through an IED attack of his HMMWV resulting in a broken back and crushed ankle and hope that a-holes like you lose your fight to terrorize Veterans who can not get proper treatment because of your ignorance.
