What does this statement mean?

Posted by @montgomery41, Mon, Sep 3 3:33pm

The last time I was seen by a Pain Management Speciallist was in June 2018 and I obtained a copy of my medical records from her office and in a section of her narrative it states this: “In my professional judgement patient qualifies for IPLA exception: patient failed non-narcotic therapy”. I have an appointment with my new Pain Management MD and I feel like when I talk to doctors about my chronic pain that I have to plead my case and ensure them I’m not an adict or anything like that.
Thank you!

@montgomery41 You have the absolute right to know what those letters mean. I can't help you out. May I suggest you call her office and ask the nurse?

Thank you Ginger. I appreciate your response!!

I don’t know what the letters mean specially but it has to due with the new guidelines for opioid useage. Federal law limits the number of pills you can get. I believe for acute pain it’s a 7 day supply. For chronic pain a 30 day supply can be written in a Rx.
