Re: over medicating doctor
The problem is 240 a month is written as "take 1-2 every 4 hours as needed" It isn't an unbelieveable amount, actually pretty normal.
BUT your wife was abusing them, were you able to tell the Dr in person or did you have to leave a message? (drs don't always get messages or really understand them) The doc *should* have addressed the issue, what did he tell you he would do?
I'm sorry this happened, it is hard for doc's to judge who <needs> the meds an who just wants them, they end up having to give out meds or harm the pt.
