    I can believe it. I have ptsd. The garbage they gave me did some bizarre stuff with one almost killing me. Hopefully she is alright.

    Correct Maheo. Neurologist make guesses on drugs where, say 13% of, patients have a severe "brain-fog" reaction.

    The question here is why patients do not take their first dose when they can just flop in their own home ... to test the affect? And further, how does a person with that much public encounters as Courtney drift away in such debilitation unnoticed? She is lucky she encountered the minimum evil that allowed her to return alive. The question remains: Did anyone take advantage of her?--- even any interactions with some person who failed at escorting her to the police? It's odd that some passerby spotted her under an overpass as needing to be reported? Mysterious.

    Direct result of the big pharma, let's push drugs on everyone society we have become.

    Now I'm not a conspiracy theorist that believes we should never use medicine. But I do believe a doctor should always prescribe drugs, especially hard drugs with this type of possible side effect, as a last resort. And I am sure a lot of them do just that. But a lot of them do not.

    Just a direct hit that explodes this money-grubbing doctor myth. That Rx our doctor writes is for a month's supply.
    You pay for the doctor visit. At the lower left of that script is a line that says 5 refills = that's 5 months before you make another visit. So easy and ethically defensible for Doc to write for no refills and collect multiple $s for 5 visits, once a month. $30/month would be far more profitable than any kickback scheme. We may not like the financial see-saw of medical treatment, but Drs. are very ethical.

    Let's see how it plays out and then you can eat crow. I'm sure he was fired cause his azz is gone and we had to pay him out. Don't be oblivious trying to defend some silly shyt you read on twitter.

    My wife is a pharma rep. I get the stories every night.

    I also see subpoenas regularly issued to Drs. on investigations for everything from Medicare/aid fraud to malpractice for prescription writing issues. So they are not ALL very ethical.

    In general, you're right, the vast majority of Drs. are squeaky clean. But, just like the lawyers get a bad name from the out of line minority, there are quacks out there who will write for the money. And they get a rep and the folks who need the drugs all talk and all end up in the bad apple's office.

    Doctors are people. Some good, some not.

    That’s not true. It is true that in the 90s the high-volume writers were getting special vacations, consultation pay, etc. But that doesn’t happen anymore.

    You can state the truth, but there are plenty who'll ignore it for a false narrative.

    No, it's not over my head but you are jumping into assumptions on this particular situation without all of the facts.
