    I take a schedule II drug for chronic pain from a botched hip replacement, 2 degenerating discs, and osteoarthritis in my spine and most joints. I have dangerous side effects from all NSAIDs (particularly ibuprofen), so a schedule II drug is all that gives me some relief from pain. My doctor has told me that he doesn't want to write the scripts because he's afraid he'll lose his medical license, and also that, for the same reason, he will never increase my dosage beyond what it is currently no matter how much I may require it. Because of the "opioid epidemic" law, I am unable to get more than a 30-day supply. I have no transportation and no one to fetch a Rx for me, so that means a painful monthly trip by taxi that costs about 5 times as much as the drug itself. It takes me 3-4 days after each trip to be able to walk again because of the pain the riding, walking, and standing cause me. People who have a genuine need for enhanced pain relief should not be punished because others think controlled substances are just for their own amusement. Now I will be forced to go out and possibly expose myself (I'm in the high risk demographic) to COVID-19 because pharmacies are not allowed to deliver or mail schedule II medications to patients. Please, PLEASE, relax the rules regarding legitimately prescribed schedule II pain meds so those of us with a legitimate need for them do not have to worry about that on top of everything else life slings at us.
