The FDA is creating a training curriculum for doctors on opioid prescribing and they are following the addiction-recovery industry’s callous call for limits on opioids.
The period for commenting ends, Monday, July 10, so you can write them until midnight Eastern Time.
Looking at the comments so far, I see many comments supporting the use of acupuncture instead of opioids. This is outrageous because acupuncture has no scientific basis and works only for some people in some situations.
I spent thousands on repeated treatments over many months and noticed absolutely no change anywhere in my body, even after adding suggested herbal teas, In retrospect, I feel like a fool.
Spending my limited funds (no insurance reimbursement) on such painful (needles hurt me) pain “treatments” and “herbals” that included whole dried earthworms was a terrible waste of time, pain tolerance, and money.
Please, please, go to the site and add a comment supporting the use of opioids for pain.
It can be very short – just a sentence or two protesting these limits on opioids, but it will be counted as a “NO” on this proposal.
