Doctors can prescribe opiates in Florida for chronic and acute pain. The doctor has to specify on the prescript
ion it is for chronic pain. For acute pain, there are some limits. But doctors can still prescribe opiates for acute pain. Unfortunately, some doctors tell their patients laws prevent them from prescribing opiates when it is all the doctors decision.
It is Always best for patients to read the laws in their state regarding the prescribing of opiates on a .gov website or the State Medical Board or State Board Of Pharmacy website.http://www.flhealthsource.gov/floridatakecontrol/patients
