Pain Meds Online

Can I go to jail if I order prescription drugs from online pharmacies? If I get an online consult from a doctor at the pharmacy does this count as OK then? I have never done anything like this but I am getting insufficient pain control from my doctor (who is an A-Hole and looks at me like I am a junky when I ask him for medication to control my unbearable pain) and he says he wants to start giving me less when my pain is worse than ever.

Sites that offer pain medication with online MD consults are legally questionable.  Although the risk to you may be minimal, it would be wise to avoid the possibility of your medical and other information being permanently on the web. Aside from the legal issue, ordering pain medication online is risky in other ways.  The sites that offer meds with online MD consults are shady enterprises with no opportunity for recourse if you have questions or problems. You may not even get the medication you ordered or know what is in the medication you receive.  The best avenue to explore is seeking out a pain management specialist or clinic where your particular pain issues are addressed by specialist who are trained in pain management.  Instead of arguing with your MD, get a consult from a pain management doctor or group and use the specialist in conjunction with your regular MD.
