Petitioning The Florida Legislature

Make Pain Meds Available to Florida Residents that Suffer Chronic Pain!


I am not yet 40 and suffer from psoriatic arthritis. I have been to 18 pharmacies in 3 days looking for a medication prescribed by my doctor of 13 years. I will run out in a few days and have to suffer not only the pain of my condition but the indignity of detox as well. I have been online reading story after story of people like myself unable to fill our prescriptions that we need to work, parent, maintain some kind of normal existence. I receive no public assistance as a single mom. My insurance will pay, but
finding oxycodone products in Florida now is like going on the mythical snipe hunt. I'm
pissed!

Stop punishing legitimate chronic pain patients!
