Continued and persistent pressure (through activism, awareness, lobbying, grassroots efforts) on government health authorities and the public.
In some cases, filing a complaint about negligent medical providers to the State Medical Board (or other prescriber regulatory agencies, depending on location) may be in order, as may the pursuit of litigation and exposing any settlements publicly. This includes cases where inappropriate or abrupt withdrawal has resulted in a severe withdrawal syndrome. Avoiding formal complaints and litigation can be a significant motivator for providers to get quickly educated. Criminal charges against the prescriber may even be appropriate in some situations.
