Good evening. Can share with me how he got you hooked? Did you share with him you were becoming dependent on it? Did he try and take you off it ? I am just looking for a little more information

Thank you for the reply. You would need and want to show that the doctor was negligent in the prescription of the medication and that there is a basis for a medical malpractice suit. I do understand that there may have been withdrawal symptoms but it would not necessarily amount to being able to sue as a result of your body acting this way. Moreover if there were dependency issues it needed to be documented with the Doctor so they could have addressed it and changed the medication
