I live in Canada,, I am a chronic pain patient and I have never heard of this contract you must sign, I am on oxy-contin, (time released narcotic) 80 mg a day and I am under the care of several specialists, and never had to sign anything.Is there other prescription drugs too they make you sign a contract for other than narcotics?
Drugs.com is owned and operated by Drugsite.Trust, a privately held trust by two top New Zealand pharmacists. The data base itself is powered by 4 independent leading medical suppliers... This is not a pharmacy but a place to go for just about all drug information, fda updates and feedback from medical associations as well as members... I really can not tell you how just checking the I agree box on the forum policy seeing that you live in Canada... It is there to cover them legally--as with any other internet site listing and giving information on just about anything... It is a law that the site has this to cover themselves from responsibility of taking the information from this site out of context. In other words, any real problems, side effects, medical emergencies and strait forward information on narcotics or meds,should always be followed up and spoken with a Certified M.D., Pharmacist, Psychiatrist and so on... I just joined myself and I find it extremely helpful. The members and friends have been great... They can give advice on past problems with certain illnesses, drugs etc. I am not on oxycontin, so you would want to join up with your own support group. People who are on the same medication with even similar health or physical dissability can really be of some help... good luck to you, you can speak to me any time... blaze22
I am only familar with the pain management docs making you sign a contract here is the US, so to help prevent a person from getting pain meds from more than one doc and abusing them. It supposedly helps keep people from getting a large supply and selling etc. Don't think it is done for other kinds of meds.
Hope this helps
