Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Hello... just joined this great site, I have a question about the buprenorphine patch. Is it necessary for doctors to have special certification to write 'scripts for this patch? Have been prescribed Subutex in the past @ 32mg/day for treatment of severe, intractable chronic pain, NOT opioid addiction. According to the research I've done, Butrans is much more appropriate for treating my chronic pain than Subutex. Also, because Subutex/Suboxone is used to treat addiction, NOT pain, I was assumed to be an addict rather than a chronic pain patient. This caused many problems for me while taking Subutex. What a stigma! Thank you in advance to anyone that can answer my question ☺
