Hi Alan,

You have proof that you disclosed that you were on both ambien and xanax, and you stated that you intended to continue to use both drugs There were no conditions attached to the use of these drugs by your sub doc, that you broke.

Everything I say is based on the above being true(or near enough)

Basically your doctor prescribed you suboxone in the knowledge that you were going to combine it with 2 cns depressants.
He then dismissed you because you were taking CNS depressants while on his suboxone script!! -- Bizzarre!! His fuck up

Maybe it was your insurance company's low contribution, I think the odds are higher that your doc, either overlooked the meds you were on, or was previously unaware of the dangers of buprenorphine mixed with z-drugs (ambien is one), benzos (xanax is one) and/or alcohol.

Motivation maybe profits, it may be that he is worried his reputation will suffer if you OD, it's difficult to suggest he might care about your safety, from what you've said, that doesn't seem likely.

Either way, the argument he uses to throw you out, is the argument you use to show he failed in his duty of care.

Your Doctor could be considered to be justified in removing you due to an unacceptable level of risk of OD, but this helpfully re-enforces your case, as his it was his incompetence that put you at risk initially.

Did the doctor, before scripting the sub, explain the dangers to you of mixing buprenorphine with CNS depressants?

Thats such a bunch of shit, you fully disclosed that you were currently taking the ambien when he induced you for the suboxone correct? therefore he has no grounds to dismiss you from the program and you can fight it with probably just a phonecall and the phrases insurace fraud and insurance audit thrown around this guy sounds like an absolute asshole and you cant let him get away with this!
