Indian doctors arrested for giving Buprenorphine for treating addiction
2015 April 21
While on the one hand, the Government of India accepts that pain management is its obligation, as enacted by the Indian Parliament in February 2014, doctors prescibing Buprenorphine for addiction treatment have been arrested. The doctors in Punjab since then have stopped prescribing Buprenorphine too, as part of their addiction treatment. The extent of misery it can cause is unbelievable.
