Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Frustrated opioid patients speak out: ‘I now buy heroin on the street’

Hundreds of people who reached out to Fox News through emails, and messages on social media, following the publication of a three-part series on the nation’s struggle to address its crippling opioid crisis caused mainly by illegal drugs, and the unintended victims – chronic pain sufferers who have relied on prescribed opioids for relief — left in its wake. 

Doctors caught between struggling opioid patients and crackdown on prescriptions

Doctors are opting to stop prescribing legal opioids – even to people who are left bedridden without them — as insurers, pharmacies, state medical boards and state and federal law enforcement authorities warn them about overstepping federal opioid prescribing guidelines (issued in 2016 by the Centers for Disease Control) and the regulatory or third-party limits that followed on the number of pills and daily dosage they can give patients. Some have stopped prescribing opioids after being faced with losing their medical license or getting arrested.
