In a free country...: We are a free people in a free country. A doctor is free to use his best judgement on how a particular patient should be treated, meaning a doctor is free to disagree with other doctors, or to agree with others. Likewise, a patient is free to interview some new doctors to see how they would manage his condition, and select a doctor. The "against my will" concept rarely applies in a free society.

No: any Doctor may not feel comfortable prescribing you certain meds even if you have been prescribed them previously. They may not feel is is a good medical treatment for you
