Good Medical Tip

If you c/o pain, and a physician asks what has worked in the past to relieve pain, do not answer "Vicodin q4" or "Percocet TID". In fact, don't mention any sort of narcotic unless you are being seen in a pain clinic, and even then, you should only be requesting said meds from that physician.

The result of doing the above is an immediate bias towards your presentation with a constant blinking reminder "drug-seeker". Might be untrue, but sorry, that's the world we live in.
