Approve a special Schedule II Narcotic pain card for chronic pain sufferers.
This petition had 29,668 supporters
My name is Dan, and I’m a registered nurse with over 10 years of critical care experience. Years ago, my wife developed an autoimmune disorder called RSD/CRPS. It is a debilitating 4-stage pain syndrome. After years of progressive pain treatment, only morphine can ease her horrible pain symptoms.
But it’s hard to get the morphine she needs on a regular basis in part because of the national opiate. crisis. It’s something I understand and I have come up with a solution for people like my wife.
Separating legitimate chronic pain patients from abusers of opiates is a vital step in giving pharmacies the legal protection they need to supply and fill Schedule II narcotic prescriptions with confidence. Authorizing a special Schedule II narcotic pain card for patients would help.
The narcotic pain card would have 4 elements:
- It would be limited to patients suffering from all chronic, debilitating illness for example cancer, AIDS, RSD/CRPS, Multiple Sclerosis, Hospice/end of life and any other qualifying diagnosis.
- It would require approval via a board certified physician oncologist, hospice physician, pain anesthesiologist, etc.
- It would require supporting documentation of diagnosis, and insurance coverage.
- It would be issued through the states.
High level-stage pain syndromes are physically, mentally, and emotionally debilitating to patients and the people who care about them. Each month shouldn’t bring a fresh struggle to source the pain medications that make life bearable for chronic pain sufferers. We can help ease patient suffering while safeguarding against prescription opioid abuse and death.
Please sign and share the petition to tell Congress that chronic pain patients need safe, reliable access to Schedule II narcotics. We need a medically certified chronic pain card NOW.
