Hello, Kelly! How are you?

Yes, there are new regulations in place that restrict how much your doctor can prescribe, except in cases where someone has intractable pain due to a possibly terminal illness, such as stage 4 cancer.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Everyone has been having to deal with medication cuts and changes.

Is there anything else I can help with?
