My first question when somebody comes in and
their specific agenda is getting off the morphine
that they take for chronic pain is, “Why? Why do you want to get off it?” And along with that, I ask, “Is the medicine helping you? If the medicine is helping, why do you want to get off of it?”
Do you know what most of them tell me? Not because
it’s giving them side effects. Why do you think they want to get off of it?
their family wants them to?
Dr. Schneider: Exactly.
