Repeat drug overdose patients are difficult to treat. We all are probably aware of the complexity of addiction, but one particular patient we have baffles me. Drug of choice-any of them. Over-the-counter, street, prescription, you name it. It seems like this person feels bad and if one pill for a particular symptom works ok, twenty are better.
Were I a prescriber, I'd be very hesitant to give this person anything at all due to the liability, but a provider can't really leave them untreated either. What do you think?
