Megan Senatori, DeWitt Ross & Stevens, s.c.

Q: About four months ago, one of my clients told me her dog started suffering from serious separation anxiety. After consulting with the client, examining the dog, and accepting the client's representations about her dog's behavior, I prescribed Xanax. The client said she was going to be out of town for work, so asked me to prescribe three months' worth of Xanax for her dog, which I did. Since then, the client has called our clinic several times for early refills. The first time, she said she lost the prescription. We refilled it. About a month later, she said she accidentally dropped the refill in the toilet. We refilled it again. This is a newer client who I do not know very well. I am beginning to suspect that my client is using the Xanax for herself. Do I have a legal duty to report my suspicion to law enforcement and, if I do so, is there a risk that my client will sue me for making such a report? Please help!
