    Don't EVER buy pain meds from a friend and give them to some other person. You don't know what's in those pain meds or what they were prescribed for. If your friend is still in pain, he needs to go back to his doctor and follow the doctor's instructions.

    Let him go through cold turkey and tell him the things he is seeing whilst sweating that they are real are going to kill him a wooden spoon

    That's rough. As someone in pain management and the long waiting period to get in to see someone, many people are suffering from the opioid epidemic. You should not have given your roommate a friend's meds. Now he assumes you will keep on doing it. Tell your friend you can't obtain anymore and has he tried CBD oil or kratom powder for pain relief? I feel sorry for your friend but he will have to find alternative methods of pain relief until he can see pain management.

    You can't help someone with a drug dependency by enabling them to use even more drugs. Pain killers don't work when you take too many. Try to encourage taking Ibroprofen first, then 2 hours later Paracetamol (Tylenol). They work in a syngergistic manner. Don't exceed the stated daily dose. If he does weed then that's anecdotally better than any of those OTC things. Pain doctor needed for legal CBD oil.

    He's a great manipulator and he probably isn't even in pain he's just addicted. Get a new roommate

    Does he have an appointment to see pain doctor?

    If no, then it is him that doesn't care.

    If he does how many days from now?

    options:

    1) Realize If you are giving him prescription pain meds you are committing a felony.

    2) Say no. Stick to it.

    3) If over the counter, tell him to give you enough money to buy several days worth until his appointment.
