Doctor’s license suspended in Michigan for overprescribing narcotics
A license suspension order was recently imposed on a Saginaw, Michigan medical physician because he endangered patients by excessively prescribing them strong medicines that were often abused, an article of mlive.com reported on December 9.
According to reports, Doctor Kriangsak Thepveera’s professional license was immediately suspended by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) after determining the doctor prescribed controlled medications likely to be abused by patients. A report also revealed that among other doctors, Thepveera most frequently prescribed codeine-promethazine, a narcotic-based cough syrup. Thepveera reportedly prescribed over 2,500 patients codeine-promethazine, a well-known recreational drug. Thepveera did not issue a statement regarding the suspension.
