Raise standards to "certified addiction specialist" to prescribe bup and no primary care doctors would prescribe it. I hope you can carry 10,000 bup patients to make up for that :-) But, allowing non-physicians to prescribe, that is going overboard and <b>would</b> create a massive pill mill industr...

On the contrary, I don't need to be Board Certified in Cardiology to do an EKG or treat chronic CHF, Board Certified in Nephrology to treat Stage 3 CKD, or Board Certified in Psychiatry to prescribe Paxil for GAD. If I understand what you are saying, that all doctors should be Board Certified in Add...

Wow, adavid, that is very enlightening! I wish we could dose all of the patients in the office, but that would defeat the convenience of buprenorphine over methadone treatment. I do not plan to dispense from my office practice. I was asking about ordering stock because my new clinic job dispenses an...

Very interesting Dr. Passer, thank you. I have no plans to dispense from my practice, but the clinic that I now work for is a dispensing clinic and I wanted to clarify how dispensing doctors order their stock meds. I would prefer not to dispense, but the clinic insists on it.

The pharmacy that the clinic is working with developed a "stock order" form, which appears like it was home made in MS Word, but it meets the criteria of not being a prescription. Dr. Passer, the clinic employs a nurse practitioner that works full time, she evaluates the patients and calls me on the...

In follow-up, the DEA troopers as well as the state inspectors came, saw and went. Clinic passed with flying colors, and I wasn't even there! FYI, the clinic is a branch of a well known inpatient addiction facility and is located in the local big regional medical center. There was a lot of fanfare w...

fishdoc, your logic is irrefutable! And they get nearly the same pay with none of the liability. They truly are dumb like a fox!

I'm a newbie at this, so my 2 cents are worth just that. But what stood out to me was "maintained on Subutex for YEARS", what about weaning? And, do you have their old records to document their "allergy" to naloxone? My policy is like yours - no Subutex unless pregnant. Maybe you could suggest they ...
