  1. What the hell is going on? I am so angry and pissed off about these new “government” laws!!! They make no sense. It is like lets send all the drug addicts who are on medication called suboxone and these patients are doing great. They are off of opiates, heroin, they are not using the needle. But now the government takes that security away. Maybe I will go shoot up some heroin. Sounds great. I will be out of my suboxone soon and my doctor says he can no longer see me because of the “government”. There are these new laws. I have called all damn day trying to find another suboxone doctor. Nobody takes medicare/medicaid. I just want to know about the laws and why?

    1. I hear you…. at you will find an article about the shortage of docs who prescribe the medication. There is currently a law going through Congress that would allow more docs to prescribe buprenorphine… but until that passes, docs are not able to take more patients, even though many people are dying. It’s crazy…

  2. What is wrong with Congress?? I mean who the hell are these people and what do they stand for? They don’t believe in saving the American life! I am 35 years old. My generation has a problem with opiates and pain pills. Lets be honest every family has a drug addict in their family or a friend addicted to pain pills. Heroin has became the thing to do anymore. It will kill us without our suboxone. I first started suboxone in 2010. I was doing anything for a pain pill. I had lost myself. And I’m sure my friends and other addicts have felt this way. Just lucky to still be alive and not have overdosed yet. It’s not right for me to come off of my medication, which is suboxone. I will die along with others.

    1. I agree. Opioid dependence is like any other chronic illness– and we finally have a medication that works, with no significant side effects. Obama’s HHS Secretary says she will raise the cap… let’s hold the administration accountable to act on their promises!
