Thanks Susie. I did start to wonder about
my doctor telling me this. I started thinking that maybe he, personally, got into trouble. He was always one to quickly use drugs. So I think you're right about
some docs being watched if they prescribe certain drugs at the same time too often. Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but I started to wonder if my doc was retiring (at 59) because he didn't like being told what he could or couldn't do OR.......he was given an ultimatum to retire versus having his license taken away? I hope it wasn't this......but I wonder. It's soooo hard for me to choose between Tramadol and xanax. I am probably too responsible with drugs and I end up not controlling my pain enough......but these 2 drugs have totally different effects on me, and I will miss one or the other. But....if my doc WAS prescribing these drugs too often to people, maybe my next doc will still be able to write these 2 RXs for me, if he is behaving himself with all his patients? Life is just getting too complicated for me. Makes me sad.
