Sure he can, particularly if you have a contract and break it. I think they should taper people off but they don't have to do that.
Your question has absolutely nothing as far as explaining why the doctor stopped prescribing the pills. There seems to be more to this story. Yes, doctors can just stop prescribing pain pills. If you want a better answer, you'll have to provide a better question.
Absolutely yes. Usually due to non compliance with a contract ('drug authority' in AU). Random drug tests used to be quite frequent for me but good behavior and honesty have finally been my friends and I have been upgraded.
Yes, but any doctor using best clinical practice would NEVER stop any opioid suddenly, as it would precipitate withdrawal symptoms. Best to slowly taper over a couple of weeks minimum, better a month.
