Unfortunately, you cannot stop the doctor from prescribing the opioid medication. The best avenue to work towards resolving this issue would be communication. First, if this has not been discussed with your wife it should be done first. If it has not been brought up she may not be aware of how the medication is affecting your relationship. Communication with her doctor is confidential, but if she gives consent then you and your wife can also discuss her reactions on the medication, with her doctor, and discuss alternative medication. You can also speak with a marriage counselor or psychiatrist. Even if she is unwilling to attend, you could discuss this issue with a counselor who would be able to give you helpful insights on how to address this issue with your wife. Finally, if you have family and or a religious organization whose input on this issue you feel your wife would be receptive to, that to is an option. I am sorry that you are going through this.

Please let me know if there is anything else you want to discuss. I would be happy to continue this conversation. If so just reply to this response. If you are satisfied with this response, please Accept the answer and provide a rating. Doing so costs you nothing extra.
