Does anyone have any info on this? He said it was effective July 1st.
I know that there are some states that are using data bases to keep track of patients with controlled substances. If won't effect anyone that's on a proper pain management program or is getting a prescription for opiates from 1 doctor. This helps keep drug pushers from getting multiple prescriptions ect... Dave
There are bogus "clinics" everywhere in Houston (my home) where I don't even think all the people writing scripts are drs. The dr pre-signs several pads of scripts, allows his/her assistants to see patients as fast as they can process them through the line waiting to get in, he opens a pharmacy next door with empty shelves selling nothing but that dr's drugs ( that is a fact), and they make a fortune. The drs demand cash only for everything including the meds at the pharmacy and hardly anything is recorded if they can get away with not doing it. It's the same in cities across the country.
DEA has been shutting them down but new ones open. It's crazy and they have to track them some way if we want them to close down the "degreed" drug dealers. Dr shopping can get people in trouble anymore. It's best for those really needing the meds to get those jerks off the street if possible. I wish they would crucify them personally for what they do to people needing medication. These drs arenothing but bandit opportunists and law enforcement has their hands tied without being able to track drugs. I personally hope they get the lot of them.
Yes, Big brother knows even when and who gets surgery. The DEA is trying to stop doctor shoppers. Here in California it is real bad, as they probably know when you change your underwear.
Have you noticed more doctors are going to jail? Look at the Michael Jackson fiasco, someone, and I am sure others will be visiting the grey bar hotel over this.
To Find Out Which States have a patient prescription database go to the DEA Home Website; Right now I believe there are approx. 30 states with this database.They say that a Nationanal Database would cost too much to be implemented.There is a wealth of info on this site including Doctors who have been caught ,tried and sentenced.You will not be prosecuted if you go to multiple doctors, They will just notify the doctors you are seeing or the pharmacies you obtain your scripts from. So go to the site and find out.
