So there are doctors out there that drug screen for the drug they are prescribing? New to this site. To make sure you are still tasking it and not selling it? What if you forget. I’m Confused. I would think they are testing for other illegal substances. I know there are new laws out now for prescribing controlled substances. It’s pretty serious. Maybe just make mando drug testing for all. Don’t randomize it or this could upset someone and make them feel like you are singling them out. I personally wouldn’t have no issue submitting a urine screen upon picking up my Rx. Although it sounds like the doc isn’t very experienced prescribing these meds. You need a psychiatrist. I def don’t like the way Ive been treated so far trying to get help I need. So, I can see how this can really make you upset.
