B ecause m y physician is prescribing such m edication to help m anage m y pain, Iagree to the follow ing conditions, w ithout reservations:1. I am responsible for the controlled substance m edications prescribed to m e . I agree to take the medicationonly as prescribed. I understand that increasing my dose without the authorization and supervision of my physiciancould lead to drug overdose, causing severe sedation, respiratory depression and death.2. I will not request or accept controlled substance medication from any other physician or individual while I amreceiving such medication from the Charlotte Pain Management Center.3. I understand the side effects, related to narcotic medication, include nausea and vom iting, drow siness,constipation , mental slowing, flushing, sweating, itching, and urinary difficulty. It is my responsibility to notify myphysician of any side effects that continue or are severe. I w ill also inform all of m y other treating physician(s) ofthis agreem ent to avoid prescription duplication.4. I understand the pain m edication is strictly for m y ow n use . Pain medicines should never be given to others.5. I understand medications like Valium, Ativan, Xanax, Fiorinal or Ambien, certain muscle relaxants like Soma,antihistamines like Benadryl or Atarax, and alcohol may produce profound sedation, respiratory depression, bloodpressure drop, and even death when taken inappropriately.6. I understand that mind altering drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, etc., are especially dangerous and deadly,and should never be used.7. I understand that pain prescriptions will not be mailed. I will pick up my refill prescriptions at the Charlotte PainManagement Center every month or as designated by my physician.8. I am responsible for m y narcotic/ pain prescriptions . I understand that refill prescriptions: Can only be w ritten for a one m onth supply for m ost m edications and w ill be filled at the sam epharm acy .

I understand that if I participate in any illegal, deceitful or fraudulent activities I will be discharged from thepractice and appropriate criminal/legal action will be invoked. This includes "dealing" prescription drugs and forging oraltering prescriptions in any manner or form.13. If it appears to the physician that there is no improvement to my daily function or quality of life from theprescribed medications, they will be discontinued. I will gladly taper the medicine as instructed by my physician.14.

I w ill be financially responsible forthe test regardless of payer source. I also agree to pill counts every visit and w ill have m y m edicationbottles w ith m e to docum ent the proper use of m y m edications.15. I authorize the release of any information and hospital records by the pain physician or his/her designee toother healthcare providers, my insurance company or other reimbursing agencies.
