    @NSnoozer...actually, yes if you refuse to take a drug screen they can and probably will withhold medications - at least any pain medication. Depending on how you react you could get thrown out of the practice and then good luck finding a doctor after that.

It helped with my chronic pain issues but never got me high or made me need to take more. It still makes me angry every time I think of how my doctor of 15 years treated me. I won't go to or trust another dr again.
    And they wonder why we turn to each other, and to alternate sources of pain management, to get a little relief. BTW, that wonderful (not) accusatory doctor of yours was right the first time, except about the addictive potential of tramadol, which only became clear over the last 10 years. NSAIDs really are risky, evidently, and not just to the gastrointestinal tract. Here's a nifty little article linking them to increased risk of heart attacks (and other articles also mention stroke). Fun!

  3. Another step to complete government control over one’s body. There is a right to privacy in this country. This completely crosses the line. Welcome to 1984.
