Dr. Andrew Kolodny has issued an epic challenge to the pain patient community. He wants to know -“Outside of palliative care, dangerously high doses should be reduced even if the patient refuses. Where exactly is this done in a risky way?” and, “I’m asking you to point to a specific clinic or health system that is forcing tapers in a risky fashion.”
Of course, pain patients must respond…
If you have been forced to taper and you have been harmed by a specific doctor or clinic, please issue a tweet in reply to Dr. Kolodney @andrewkolodny. If you don’t have a twitter account, now is a good time to get one.
Don’t be shy. Don’t hold back. Tell it like you have experienced it in 140 characters.
