Elizabeth Amirault had never heard of a Narx Score. But she said she learned last year the tool had been used to track her medication use.

During an August 2022 visit to a hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Amirault told a nurse practitioner she was in severe pain, she said. She received a puzzling response.

“Your Narx Score is so high, I can’t give you any narcotics,” she recalled the man saying, as she waited for an MRI before a hip replacement.

Mine is over 9000

It’s really interesting how some people manage to get a hundred percocets every month, yet my mother broke her arm in two places and snapped a tendon and the doc/surgeon wouldn’t prescribe her any opioids, gave her tylenol even when stronger was requested. Who is prescribing these opioids all the time?
