I think they have to function off the principle that the benefits of a prescribed medication would outweigh the consequences. If you've been told that you do not need a certain medication ( ::cough::Ritalin, or whichever psychostimulant you're after these days
::cough:: ) by more than one doctor, then you're probably not going to get what you're looking for unless you come across an uninformed doctor that'll prescribe anything because they're stupid (Send him/her my way if you come across one
) or a dope doctor that'll prescribe anything because they're corrupt.
Seriously, Keith. You're already on 12
prescription medications with alot of them being pretty serious stuff. I realize that they all have a purpose - otherwise you wouldn't be on them - but there's going to come a point where your doctors are simply going to say No when you ask for them to add on another prescription, and doctor shopping as you described it is basically the same thing as drug seeking. Don't get me wrong. I'm not scowling at you for your search for medication, but if you want more CII's just so you can say you have them, then you should probably slow down and try to stabilize yourself mentally and physically. More psychotropic medication could throw your CNS even more out of wack, which could consequently have negative effects on whatever balance/control you've found with regard to your pain, digestive problems, etc.
I know that the fact everything you get, from doctor visits to surgeries to prescriptions, is free might make it seem okay
to get as many prescriptions as possible, but like I said, now that you're in the double-digits when it comes to the number of rx's you've got, maybe you should reassess things before endlessly seeking more prescriptions.
