I assume this is wrong and her doctor is doing her a disservice, at the least. The person in question is my mother. She does have a legitimate back problem which causes chronic pain. That is how the percocet started. She then claims she has panic attacks though I have never seen one, which is the reason for the xanax. She has been taking both of these for 10+ years. I know that in itself is not good. Recently for reasons I am unaware of this doctor has prescribed the amitriptolene and tramadol. What can I do to help? Can I talk to the doctor? Is there anyone I can talk to about this doctor? Please help and only comment if you are truly knowledgable on the subject.
