Instead of effective analgesics, some patients with acute and/or chronic pain are being told to take OTC Tylenol and/or Ibuprophen in the ER & for post-op pain.

2)which underscores the need for close supervision of these patients."

Let's take a look at their rationale for their conclusion.

Of 9940 patients who received 3 or more #opioid prescriptions over an 8 years, 51 experienced an #overdose, 6 of the 51 experienced a fatal event. 3)The researchers did not make the yearly data available, nor did they provide data on any known prior history of Substance Use Disorder #SUD within the #Patient population.

It's impossible to determine how they performed their calculations to obtain these results.

These include the social and cultural environment, the economic environment and the physical environment."

How do you spell Government Waste?


@kennethpolite of @TheJusticeDept side stepped questions from journalist inquiring as to the costs involved in the new Strike Force.

The @DEAHQ has documented that diversion of RX is rare. Only 1%… are diverted.

Yes... that's where the Millions of taxpayer's dollars are going!

🧐How coincidental that this strike force targeting physicians & pharmacists was announced the day following the Supreme Court voted 9-0 that the Government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt

🧐 and *what* do Federal Law Enforcement & AG's consider *Dangerous prescribing*?

Let's take a look!👀

The DEA perceived this CA Pain Management to be a "High Prescriber"😯

In 3 years he issued 9,000 RX. Oh My, How Shocking!!!… Now, this wasn't 9k #Opioid RX. It was 3 different controlled substances either alone or in combination.

Their is NO law that defines "Over prescribing" or prohibits co-prescribing of any medication combinations. The FDA warning requires a Risk/Benefit analysis to be performed

🧵The narrative that opioids aren't effective for chronic pain is false.

They manipulate perception by relying only on Randomized Controlled Trials (RTC) & excluding all Observational Studies (OS).

And by perpetuating the logical logical fallacy that Cancer & Non-Cancer

"The problem with this distinction is that there is very little evidence to support a difference between these two broad categories. As Peppin and @headdock point out: ~ @ewidera

There is NEVER a justification for violence towards medical professionals.

Perpetuating Fear & #Stigma is NOT beneficial

It's rare for individuals in #Pain to strike out in violence at medical professionals.

Does it happen? Yes.

Should it? NO! The ONLY way to prevent future occurrences is to understand WHY it is happening & avoid Fear Mongering & casting aspersions on a population of patients who are experiencing Systemic #Discrimination.

Doctors can’t help people in pain because of restrictive opioid policy. ~ @dr4liberty @RMengerMD
ITHERETWEETER1:// via @reason

There is no clear definition of overprescribing. Yet policy makers keep doubling down on a misguided mission to reduce or eliminate opioid prescribing, putting patients back in miserable pain and mental anguish, driving some to suicide and others to the black market.

The protections for individuals with disabilities under the American's with Disabilities Act are not being enforced when patients with painful diseases report experiencing discrimination.

To influence lawmakers we need everyone to get involved.

Here’s what you can do!

Take Action 🗣️ 📢

Send an Inquiry to the Justice Department Civil Rights Division on the Status of Guidance for the Protection of Patients With Painful Diseases Pain, Policy Modification Requirements Under the Americans with Disabilities Act

Personally, I find the entire outline of their Orthopedic program concerning from a patient's perspective.

In addition to the "72 hr Pain Free" follow up. It minimizes the potential for patients to experience post-op pain.

Unrealistic expectations shouldn't be advertised🤦‍♀️ Image Make no mistake, I'm in suggesting this act was justified.

There is no, and can be no justification for striking out at medical professionals when a patient's expectations for treatment are not met.
