in the course of stimulant prescribing there are and will ever be patients suffering from eds who believe they would benefit from higher doses of stimulants, if only their rx'er would provide them.
for the rx'er, any possibility of a negative response to a high dose regimen that exsists, no matter how small, potentially threatens their career. this is especially so if the patient becomes psychotic and causes harm as the result of such an rx.
here's the kicker: THE MD IS ALWAYS RESPONSIBLE, not the patient.
what if a patient could be 'deputized', perhaps after first learning about medicine as it applies to this and passing an exam? maybe a '3 strikes' criterion could comprise how pwn writing their own stimulant rx would lose the right to do so if/when they can't avoid harming themselves.
anybody here think my idea is other than absurd? might be a good thing if self-rx'ing was possible for some pwn. it would absolutely be for me.
