Side effects and benefits of Gabapentin
You are so right. It stinks, this new take on severe continuous pain. I deal with it every day since breaking my back. My reporting of unrelenting pain falls on deaf ears.

We cannot back down in the face of this. If you have someone prescribing pain meds and they decide they don't want to do that anymore they are legally responsible to find another prescriber. We need to stand fast and sue if that is what it takes. We are not the opioid problem and our doctors didn't cause it. When they quote you the body count know that over half of it is from Heroin, Meth and other street drugs. Also most of the opioid overdoses are caused by counterfeit pills being sold by drug gangs from around the world. They mix them with fentanyl which is impossibly hard to titrate into the doses they are going for. The government cant get at these dealers or in some cases are being paid off by these dealers so they come for us and our Doctors. Wr are the low hanging fruit. Repost: WE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. Paint in on the pharmacy walls: WE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM!!!
