I would like to know if their is any group in government fighting for the rights of people that could not live with their chronic pain if pain meds with opiates are removed.
I really don't believe cutting out life saving pain medication from chronic patients will keep drugs out of the hands of those determined to use them. Control from drs. and pharmacists are the way. A dr should decide what a patient needs. And patients should lock their medicines away. Don't tell anyone you take them.
I just wish there was some public advocacy for those that need them to keep on functioning. We only hear how everyone that needs them is an addict.
From what I have read and heard you have very serious detox problems from many medicines used for nerve pain, or mental illness. You can't just get off of them without a long period of time and some have been found to leave permanent damage behind, yet no one warns you until it's your turn to find out. In this instance so many medications for pain are more dangerous to us.. And having tried them , make it hard to wake up and function .
