BLUE POINT - Doctors across the state say they would limit the amount of painkillers they prescribe if a new bill is passed that would require keeping closer tabs on controlled substances. As News 12 Long Island has reported, state lawmakers are reviewing a bill, known as I-Stop, that aims to combat the growing epidemic of prescription drug abuse. The bill would create a real-time database for pharmacists and doctors to update whenever a patient is prescribed certain medications.In a new survey by the Medical Society of the State of New York, 41 percent of doctors said they would limit prescriptions of controlled substances to specific patients if the legislation passes. People who genuinely rely on painkillers to cope with chronic pain are wondering where that will leave them. Some patients say they're worried they will lose access to the drugs they need to get through the day. Supporters of I-Stop argue the legislation is needed to combat the deadly pill epidemic. They say doctors simply don't want to do the extra work, or be responsible for "policing" their patients.
