Perhaps you will need Blood Pressure medicine? We are hearing a lot from all these "new rules", yet a simple search shows little in most States. I think the DEA has outlined some general outlines on how and what a Doctor can prescribe.

Go to an ER if your BP is 180/120. You are in hypertensive crisis. Then call a lawyer and sue his stupid a$$ for medical malpractice.

Eddy is correct. These new directives are just that, suggestions from the DEA to try to avoid overprescribing and improper prescribing. So, they can be prescribed together, but in many cases, the doctor involved is going to have explain why, and if the reasons are found to be invalid, they could face losing their license to practice medicine, as well as fines and jail time.

Since both of these are now considered controlled substances, most doctor's will balk at prescribing them together.

As to the lawsuit, there is really nothing you can do there, no doctor is obligated to prescribe anything, or treat you, unless you are in immediate life-threatening danger. So, as long as you were fine and stable, the last time you saw them, you have no recourse. You're only option is to try and find another doctor.

Have you seen anyone regarding the high blood pressure?
