The best pain medicines are narcotics. They have more benefits and less side effects than any other type of drug.
Pain Treatment is seriously compromised under the banner of fighting drugs ... and it is getting worse.
The DEA demands that doctors and pharmacies provide records of every prescription for controlled substances that is written or filled. Under John Ashcroft the DEA is seeking to cast a wider net over the pain medications and presciptions they scrutinize.
The DEA's hardball tactics include storming clinics, ransacking offices, and arresting doctors. Legitimate pain sufferers find it increasingly difficult to get pain medication, and they live in fear that it could become unavailable at any time.
