A CRACKDOWN ON CODEINE WILL LEAVE PHARMACISTS WITH A HEADACHE:
Tania Doyle: Definitely will put a huge strain on getting a doctors appointment! I have been prescribed heavy pain medication but it upsets my stomach so I get Nurofen Plus to help my pain when needed, now I need a doctors appointment which is ridiculous! Not happy and its so hard to get appointments with doctor now!
Cheetham: Good and bad, Opioid drugs should have more regulation. But there
should just be more education on the suitable painkillers for suitable pain.
Improper use builds tolerances and require higher strength opioids like Endone and Oxy.
Margie Clarke: You can’t stock up when you can because you have to give your drivers license each time you get some and if you go to get more often they won’t give them to you
Sharlene Martin: And again due to the people that abuse it, WE ALL pay the price. What a joke!
