NARXCARE! An AI algorithm that tracks every opioid scrip that is prescribed. A private company maintains and runs the site through government contracts. They rake in hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars to do so. They go outside the lines to collect data on us. One poor women was cut off her pain meds because her dog was prescribed tramadol and it upped her addiction rating. All of us get a score from 1 to 5.
My last doctors scrip for tramadol was denied by the pharmacy. I blame NarxCare!
I believe we need to start petitions and call our gov reps and complain and protest this injustice. My senator and representative know me by my first name, I send them a lot of emails.

Your friend in pain,

Oh and btw, MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Yes but they don't prescribe the pain meds...just my biologics at the infusion center.

Meloxicam is not a controlled substance, so I do not understand why you can not get a Rx for it. Are you seeing a Rheumatologist for your arthritic issues?
