Gabapentinoids to be kept in a safe under Government proposals


Really frustrating as pain clinics, psychiatrists and witch doctors keep prescribing these drugs to patients and they think it is a lifelong badge of entitlement to as much of these drugs as they want, and ramp up use to beyond reasonable dosages and claim they are in too much pain or stress to reduce. Tried referring to drug team to detox them but patients decline to reduce so they just discharge them back to Gps. Time to stop prescribing these meds before its too late to stop the flood.
