I also would like to find a no addictive pain med, but have never been able to find one. Does anybody know of one. The push is on to rid the world of the evil narcotics but there is no effective med. Avilable . they want(who ever they are I suspect the DEA) to stop people in pain from using narcotics but have no replacement. Do these rule makers not understand that living in pain is a real problem. I have taken narcotics responsibly and effectively for twenty years but now I am being refused meds. by someone somewhere that has no idea of my phyiscal condition where is the resposibilty in those decisions?View Thread
I also live with chronic pain and have done so for over twenty years with the help of my doctor we have developed a regime of medications that allow me to live somewhat of a productive life. After years of taking narcotics responsibly and effectively I am being denied access to these medications with no explanation as to why. I can find no one who will tell me why. Can anyone tell me what I can do or where I can get help with this problem?View Thread
