“..PDMPS, HAVE NOT SHOWN THEY REDUCE OVERDOSE DEATHS NOR IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES..”
FELIX BRIZUELA, MD
The major problem with the controlled substance highlights the classic case of bureaucrats, trying to be scientists based on little to no knowledge but on speculation to set rules, that cause harm.
As Jeffery Singer MD., a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institue has stated many times
“… police and politician must stay out of medical sciences..medical science is a work in progress.”
WHEN THE PHARMD., BECOMES A PHYSICIAN WANT TO BE
All the pharmacies and pharmacists are victims of this inappropriate, violation of our constitution, focusing their harm on the marginalized, disproportionately affecting physicians of color and those taken care of the marginalized, pharmacists themselves have been part of the surveillance system.
At one time when I worked in a Suboxone clinic, there was a drastic drop in the number of heroin deaths in Weirton West Virginia, with a dramatic drop in Street sales as well, a pharmacist decided to report us, resulting in an investigation by the DEA in the State medical board.
Back then, before the white papers, the DEA came by and said everything was good as did the State medical board.
Since 2012, before I was investigated or indicted for opiates, multiple pharmacies, including Kroger’s, Walmart even Giant eagle not only refused to fill my opiate prescriptions, they refuse to fill all of my prescriptions.
This included life-sustaining therapy such as antibiotics, antihypertensive, etc.
Thus the surveillance on the part of the pharmacies crossed over from opiates. I had a case where a patient had very severe neuropathic pain, she was on opiates, but needed supplementation. She did not respond to classic anti-convulsions like Lyrica or Gabapentin.
I prescribed mexiletine, the most potent drug in the market targeting the sodium channels, and approved for use in neuropathy. Despite this, the pharmacist from Giant eagle decided to report me to the State medical board. Launching an investigation.
I called the pharmacist and said would you please look in the PDR. She looked in the PDR, and she responded “oh”. I told the State medical board to mind their business, and they pretty much backed off.
It’s very conflicting, then I see big pharmacy chains, many doctors, pharmacists of color find themselves the targets of massive government overreach, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct resulting in DEAth to many of the patients they’ve been caring for.
PROP AND THE OPIOID HYSTERIA
This is reminiscent of doctors, like PROP literally “eating their own” for their own selfish agenda, a clear violation of the ama, and the Hippocratic oath. Like these pharmacies and pharmacists, PROP base is their opinions on falsified data, personal prejudicial opinions.
It is a mess, with everybody fighting everybody, a literal Battle Royale where only one person will end up winning, and the ultimate victims will be the 50 million chronic disease and chronic pain patients as well as the marginalized of society.
CONGRESS MUST CLEAN UP THIS MESS
FOR NOW, YOU ARE WITHIN
Angry Roberto R Hernandez As i read how many people have died already, and not from over dosing from opioids. It stuns me because i am reaching my breaking point. Many doctors now are refusing people help. Because the DEA has Threaten them of going to jail if they treat us are you kidding me.its no secret i fell three stories and landed on the concrete steps and cast Iron railing. As i lay there i did not know how my life would change for the worst. I went into shock very fast. When i woke up they wanted to amputate my left leg. Years after losing it my right knee has already be fully replaced at 50. The pain i would endure from 29 years of age on was unbearable at times. And thought a way out would be easier, why would anyone in their right mind even think that way ?? We know its not right unless you have walked one step in my shoes you know nothing. But my pain doctor i found to be a good pain management doctor.and just when i found a pain management doctor to help me!! Not over Medicate me you the corrupt DEA arrest him unreal how the DEA is getting away with this people, The DEA needs to be Removed. They allow even local police get away with committing a Felony. We the people put them there including the police. We the people are the ones who put them there we can remove them by removing the political officials who we the people voted on. Wake up people wake up. I was once told be the change you want.
