My father moved in with me in VT from NJ and recently started with a new doctor. He had been taking Hydrocodone 10mg tablets for pain for a number of years but he rarely took it (only taking it when in extreme pain) so a month's Rx would last him 3 or 4. When he asking about getting the Rx refilled, the doctor replied, "I do not prescribe narcotics."
How is this blanket statement okay in the mind of ANY DOCTOR!?
Get a job at McD's because you don't deserve what you are being paid to NOT DO your current job!
There are nights I can here my dad sobbing/crying in his room because the pain is so bad. I am appalled that any PCP would think it was ethical to "NOT prescribe narcotics" and am asking if there are any doctors out there that could help me to understand how this practice (or lack of) could be deemed ethical?
