The Craziest Reason to Prescribe Oxycontin
Recently, we were asked to complete a Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) for a patient who had recently doubled her dosage of Oxycontin from 40mg to 80mg 3x/day. The reason? A tree was struck by lightening and destroyed her ATV. Apparently this caused her so much emotional distress, she needed to double her narcotic intake.
Note to treating physicians: Sometimes the best prescription is a visit to the psychologist.
