I just found out that some jobs and organizations prohibit using pain medications. In fact, I heard of a NASCAR driver was suspended until he no longer needs his pain medication.
Pharmacies always label medication with warnings against operating dangerous machinery until its affects are known to the patient. It seem that organizations can make this decision for you!
So I wonder....
If a patient must manage pain with narcotics, legally of course, and their employer suspends or fires them for using the medication, doesn't that patient qualify for disability payments?
I would love to hear opinions!
