The Legal Side of Pain

I will admit that when my Suboxone was discontinued, I was extremely distraught. So, I went to the American Pain Association, and received an email from one of the moderators there who referred me to the following page based on what I told him. For those who don't know, I had been on Klonopin since 2001, after my wreck, to keep me calm enough to go out and try to enjoy life. I began seeing Meridian Health Group, now known as Indianapolyclinic, in 2006. Needless to say, I was still taking my Klonopin as a preventative measure every single day at my psychiatrist request. From 2006 to 2015, there were absolutely no problems with me being on my klonopin. However, in June of 2015, my nurse practictitioner quit, and my new PA was an absolute nightmare. She told me that as long as I continued to test positive for benzodiazepines, I would have to come every month, as opposed to once every 3 months. I told my psychiatrist what the polyclinic was trying to do, and he called them and informed them that under no circumstances would he be taking me off of my Klonopin. Well, the very next time I saw Andrea, she got really crabby after my drug test, but gave me my script anyhow. The script was one day early, so I sat on it for one day. When I got to the pharmacy, a prior authorizatio was needed. The person at the polyclinic informed my pharmacist that the script is still valid, but she would not be calling in for a PA because I was no longer a patient there. Needless to say, that was news to me. When I got home, I had a certified letter informing me that I was no longer a patient of theirs for "failure to discontinue a controlled substance you were order to stop."

Well, I don't take things laying down. Certainly not with this Dr that I had been seeing. He is a general psychiatrist who fancies himself a pain psychiatrist (look up Dr. Dmitry Arbuck) by the way, I know we don't name and shame here, but this guy is an absolute crook in more ways than one. I dug up tons of dirt before contantacting the American Pain Association, and presented them with my findings along with evidence.If you to go propublica.com, he, and dr. Durrell (his associate) write over twice what the nearest physicians writes.

After APA had time to review my information, they informed me to contact the state medical licensing board, and to reach out to an organization called "The Legal Side or Pain" The Legal Side of Pain Link . Please, if you have ever been treated unfairly by a dr, and can prove it, do not hesitate to contact this organization. They have been nothing but helpful to me.
