Indications of false claims include:

An ad suggests their product is a “miracle cure.” (If there were a cure, we wouldn't be sick)
The ad suggests a treatment that is not backed by scientific evidence. A statement that it is, is not enough. Ask to read the research abstract from a creditable source such as the National Institute of Health’s U.S. National Library of Medicine website PubMed or a peer review journal.
A vitamin, herb, or supplement does not have a contact name listed on the label. (If the manufacturer is reputable, it will be there.)
The product is a steroid or other hormonal preparation. (Your doctor should always check your hormone levels to determine need. If necessary, a medication will be prescribed, usually not an over-the-counter drug.)
A practitioner claims to be able to cure a disease or syndrome that no one else can.
The supposed specialist has no credentials or avoids showing them. (Most of us like to show off our achievements. Look for those diplomas.)
Anyone demands a signed financial contract for services instead of listening to your complaint.
A person intimidates you or puts you on the defensive. You should not have to defend your illness or what you know works for you.

But I also believe that the vast majority of patients are taking opioids responsibly and that the majority of health care providers prescribe these drugs cautiously and carefully. Addicted patients need our help, but nonabusers need it, too, and health care professionals and politicians should stand up for them, as well.

Nonabusers often bear stigma and are sometimes made to feel like outcasts when they’ve done nothing wrong. I don’t think that’s fair, and I’m willing to speak up on their behalf.
