Promethazine/codeine on top of Percocet and diazepam?

CIII Filling (Specifically Suboxone)
A patient on Suboxone, prescribed by a Pain Management Specialist with a Buprenorphine Waiver, who doesnt fall into the normal box and has a complex medical history, meaning quitting all other substances with dependency potential is not an option, has landed in a difficult situation. The MD was prescribing Suboxone and Percocet (Yes I know, that is counterintuitive, but that's not the focus of this question). Other MDs have been prescribing Phenobarbital, Fiorocet, Lunesta, Diastat, all MDs... CIII Filling (Specifically Suboxone) (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Doctor's self Rx. your state's policy & your educated stance
So I am currently a resident physician and read an article discussing about self prescribing among residents. I was talking among colleagues and many of them admit to self prescribing or having a friend or wife/ husband write them an Rx. Several even admit to having prescribed class IV medications for themselves (valium, vicodin, ambien) were some of the examples. What is the teaching from your pharmacy school and what is your state pharmacy boards policy? On a personal note I have...

Recent Ethical issues in the news
Hey guys, Thought it could be useful to all of us to get a discussion going on recent ethical issues in the news so we can really look at each topic from every angle and be better prepared to discuss it at interview.
