In Episode 209, Part II, I speak with Dan Schneider of the Netflix Series “The Pharmacist” about his crusade against OxyContin Pill Mill Doctor and Purdue Pharma.
OxyContin has been causing deaths and addictions which ruined the lives of families for decades.
We speak at length about how young people were coming into his pharmacy with heavy duty prescriptions for OxyContin for 40 and 80 mgs each and sometimes many more at the same time of other drugs.
This led him to start doing research to find a pill mill doctor, Dr. Clegget, who was operating in a town nearby in the overnight hours. What doctor operates over night?
He tells me all he did to get her shut town because young people were dying in his area.
Later we talk about how pharmaceutical representatives were pressuring doctors all over the country to give their patients OxyContin for pain. They claimed it was only 1% addiction, but shortly found out that was a lie.
Watch this second episode about the crusade Dan has taken since 1999 to help people not become addicted to these horrific pain medications.
