It's BEYOND time for opioid hysteria to end and well BEYOND time for Doctors to be allowed to treat patients with painful diseases as they were trained to do. Politicians need to remember that it's not only illegal to practice medicine without a license, it's also illegal to interfere with the Doctor/patient relationship. Opioids are often less dangerous than tylenol and ibuprofen. Opioid medications have fewer side effects than OTC medications and are not as addictive as PROP keeps insisting. Let Doctors be Doctors and stop telling me how to treat my painful diseases.
