Thanks this info, it is greatlly appreciated! I live in KY and KASPER (Kentucky All Scheldule Prescription Electronic Register, not the friendly ghost!) makes it almost impossible for LEGIT patients to get the pain meds they need.  I guess they've succeeded in elminating the "bad apples."  To bad everyone else has to suffer for this to happen.  You would think that law enforcement had the MD, and DR was just a formality!

Bones & Dones,
That is very very scary saying. I wonder where we're heading for.

Ides,
Thanks so much for posting that. It will be the answer to many questions and
solve little quarrels among CP classmates.

You know it is interesting that the state of KS states that "tolerance and Physical dependencies are consequences of sustained use of opioid analgesics and are not synonymous of addiction" but yet we are treated like criminals.
What doesn't kill us only makes us fight back harder! :P
